Tori Spelling’s baby daddy won’t be heading to jail after all.
Dean McDermott’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace has dropped her demand for contempt of court after she claimed the deadbeat dad fell months behind on his more than $110,000 in child support and alimony debt.
“The Petitioner…requests the matter be dismissed,” a March 9 court filing in Los Angeles Superior Court reads. “The court finds good cause and matter is dismissed without prejudice; Order to Show Cause is discharged.”
According to the papers, McDermott, 50, and Eustace — parents to 18-year-old son Jack — met during a recess during last week’s dramatic court hearing to discuss their difficulties and come to a conclusion.
The truce worked out in the father of six’s favor.
However, Eustace, 54, reserves the right to refile for contempt if McDermott resumes dodging his payments, the documents reveal.
The former couple, who split when McDermott infamously cheated with now-wife Spelling, have had a tumultuous relationship for over a decade.
After a brief period of friendly relations, Eustace became furious with her ex’s wild spending, and proceeded to file papers in January.
Meanwhile, McDermott and Spelling, 43, welcomed baby #5, son Beau Dean, on March 2.
