Should Tori Spelling dump her cheating husband? Her wishes may not matter as much as her bank account.
"She would definitely kick Dean to the curb if she could financially afford to do so," the insider said. "Tori has admitted she would file for divorce from Dean, but she is afraid she would go broke."
"The couple has no prenuptial agreement, and Tori is the sole breadwinner. Dean wouldn't settle for anything less than joint custody, and Tori would be forced to pay him spousal and child support. It's a really sad situation for Tori and the kids."
When Spelling married her first husband, Charlie Shanian, her parents forced her to have him sign a prenup — but by the time Dean came around she and her parents weren't speaking. Spelling and Shanian's divorce was finalized on April 20, 2006; she and Dean wed less than a month later. A month after that, Spelling's father was dead, leaving her only a reported $800,000 of his $500 million estate.
"Before marrying Charlie, Tori's parents forced her to get a prenup and she was very thankful for it once the marriage went south," said the source.
"With the recent allegations that Dean cheated on Tori, she's now kicking herself for not securing the prenup with Dean. She doesn't plan on divorcing Dean, but feels that a prenup could have prevented him from cheating on her."
McDermott is currently in rehab to deal with his "personal issues."
Tori "just can't stop crying about Dean's betrayal… she feels humiliated, and extremely angry at him," the source added.
"She seems to care more about the public perception of her than Dean's cheating."
