Tori Spelling's estranged husband, Dean McDermott, spilled all about his addiction battle and crumbled marriage to the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress after completing a 40-day stint in rehab, speaking candidly about his booze-fueled rages and the impact they had on his family.

"Alcohol made me feel good enough," the star, who now lives in a sober living home with eight other men, said in a new interview. "It ended up with me drinking a fifth of tequila every night, seven days a week, and a handful of narcos [prescription meds] by myself with a beautiful family in the other room. That's what it led to and that's what led to the brokenness and to what happened between me and Tori."

McDermott spoke about his booze-fueled rages and the fallout of his and Spelling's marriage.

McDermott admitted that depression took over and he could no longer recognize himself in the mirror, RadarOnline.com has learned. "And finally surrendered to the fact that I need help. I wanted to die. I would wake up every morning going, 'S---, I woke up again.'"

As we previously reported, McDermott stunned fans when he announced the former couple's split after 18 years together this past June, telling the world they would continue to co-parent the five children they share (one of whom is his from a past relationship with Mary Jo Eustace). The Canadian actor told Daily Mail their relationship had collapsed, despite their attempts to keep the love alive.

"I couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't live that life anymore. I was tired of the anger and the yelling," he explained amid his budding relationship with new girlfriend Lily Calo.

He said their marital woes reached a boiling point in recent years, sharing that he and Spelling have stayed in separate bedrooms since 2017 due to her constantly letting pets, including a pig and a chicken, sleep in their room. McDermott said they became more like roommates instead of lovers.

Despite going their separate ways, McDermott said Spelling was always looking out for him over the years. "All Tori's ever done to this day is want me to be happy and healthy and I inflicted a lot of damage and pain on that woman," he shared.
