Dean McDermott Breaks Silence on Instagram in Wake of Tori Spelling Police Call

Dean McDermott has broken his Instagram silence, in the wake of his wife Tori Spelling's reported mental breakdown.

Taking to the social media site, McDermott shared himself singing a Happy Birthday son to the couple's 1-year-old son Beau.

In the clip, Beau can bee seen smiling and laughing as his father and some other unknown voice wish him a very happy first birthday.

"Time flys!!! This little dude is 1 today!!!! Happy Birthday Beau Dean McDermott!! We love you," McDermott wrote in a caption on the post.

McDermott's post comes just one day after police were called to his and Spelling's home on Thursday, following reports that she was suffering a "nervous breakdown." She reportedly had no weapons in her possession, but was being aggressive enough for it to be concerning.

Spelling and McDermott married in 2006. The couple has five kids: Liam Aaron (born March 13, 2007), Stella Doreen (born June 9, 2008), Hattie Margaret (born October 10, 2011), Finn Daveyt (born August 30, 2012) and Beau Dean (born March 2, 2017).

McDermott has one child from a previously relationship, Jack Montgomery (born October 10, 1998), and he recently fired back at his ex-wife, over claims she made that he is a "deadbeat dad" who owes her up to $100,000 in child support and alimony.

"I have taken this for years and this is the first time I've talked to anybody but I've had it," the 50-year-old said. "This is a woman who is trying to exact revenge. She's constantly in the press, calling me a deadbeat dad and saying these charges are for delinquent child support. They are not."

In October, McDermott's ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace, filed court documents citing he was in contempt over a failure to make his monthly $1,500 alimony payments.

"I do not deny that I owe her money. I have tried countless times to work things out with her. She knows I'm an actor, she knew that when she married me all those years ago. The business is up and down. I'm not making a ton of money right now," McDermott said.

"I got behind on it but I will pay. I told her upfront I was having a hard time financially. I reached out to Mary Jo to discuss it and work it out. Instead of being a normal human being and working it out with me, she went to the courts and put me on notice," he added.


The actor also pointed a finger at the "interest" that he incurs for late payments and expressed that the growing number has made it difficult for him to keep up with making payments in the required amount on time.

Lastly, McDermott said, "I'm not the guy who is portrayed in the press. I'm a good guy, a great actor, a great dad and a great husband. I'm just a good guy trying to make it in Hollywood. I'm tired of being the whipping boy and for her to get away with this. It's been almost 13 years, can we move on?"
