The actress and the actor were married for 17 years before they split earlier this year.
Tori Spelling, 50, isn’t too happy about estranged husband Dean McDermott‘s recent tell-all interview about their life together and their split, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The actress feels “hurt” about the comments the actor made, which included information about his alcohol-fueled rages and how he attempted suicide with sleeping pills, and is “protective” over their five children, a source told the outlet.
“Tori is a little hurt and upset by Dean’s recent tell-all type of interview,” the source said.
[She] recognizes that Dean spoke about her in a relatively positive light, but she feels protective over her children.
Especially Stella, who is old enough to know what’s going on and reads and hears about these types of things.”
Tori and Dean share Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 12, Finn, 11, and Beau, 6, together, and he is also the father of his son Jack, 24, whom he shares with ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
“Tori is trying to stay positive and keep things afloat for her family and not let Dean’s words impact her too much,” the source added.
The insider’s comments come after Dean admitted he hadn’t seen Tori or the kids in five months.
“I took something that was really beautiful, and I just tore it down year after year, day after day,” he told Daily Mail.
