Tori Spelling’s husband Dean McDermott has been hospitalized for pneumonia and possibly meningitis – and the sickness apparently comes at a convenient time. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the cash-strapped couple skipped their bank lawsuit court hearing amid the hospitalization.
Spelling, 46, and McDermott, 52, were scheduled to appear at Los Angeles Superior Court at 8:30am for their ongoing court battle with City National Bank.
“Hearing on Application for Order for Appearance and Examination of Dean McDermott,” the schedule obtained by Radar read. “Hearing on Application for Order for Appearance and Examination of Tori Spelling.”
The parents-of-six skipped out on the court hearing, a source told Radar. It’s not certain whether or not the couple failed to attend because of McDermott’s medical emergency.
“Lawyers on both sides agreed to push the hearing to September,” the insider said.
The actor posted a photo hooked up to wires on Monday, July 1.
“So this happened last night,” he captioned the photo. “I got admitted to hospital with pneumonia, possibly meningitis. I’ve never been so sick in my life!!!! Thumbs up and spirits up though. And don’t forget to listen to @daddyissuesshow this morning at 9am.”
As Radar has extensively reported, City National Bank sued the couple for failing to pay back a $400,000 loan from 2010.
City National Bank accused them of “owing plaintiff an unpaid principle balance in the amount of $185,714.05, plus interest in the amount of $2,407.92 and late charges in the amount of $681.41 for a total of $188,803.38.”
They also requested the $17,149.09 she withdrew in September 2016.
City National Bank was awarded a judgment of $202,066 against Spelling and McDermott in May 2017.
Interest in the amount of $40,280 was added because she failed to pay, as McDermott has to pay an additional $37,029.
In March 2019, a Los Angeles Superior Court clerk signed off on a writ of execution, meaning the Sheriff can steps to garnish the couple’s wages and seize their bank accounts.
A bench warrant was then issued after the 90210 star failed to appear for a court hearing. The warrant was dissolved in April, as she agreed to produce documents and meet with attorneys.
