According to US OK! magazine, Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace has hit him with a lawsuit after claiming that he stopped sending child support payments for their 18-year-old son, Jack. And if the judge rules in her favour, Dean could be leaving Tori for life behind bars.
The crisis coincides with reports the former 90210 actress is pregnant - yet again.
'She’s caught in a perfect storm of problems,' spills an insider to the publication. 'If Dean ends up in jail, Tori would have to take care of their five children and a newborn without a dime to spare. She's terrified!'
Despite the couple's well-documented financial problems, US OK! reports they recently enjoyed two extremely over-the-top vacations, in Punta Mita Mexico, and Iceland, while Dean has allegedly left his son from his previous marriage out of pocket, with the magazine reporting that former wife Mary Jo has complained, 'he bounces my son's university rent/tuition and is delinquent in paying therapist bills.'
According to OK!, outrageously free-spending Tori has already sought assistance from mum. The magazine says her rent and her children's educations are paid for by her meg-wealthy mother Candy.
'A bailout might be the only possible light at the end of the tunnel,' a source tells the publication. 'But even if that happens, Tori will still have to raise the kids on her own if Dean gets locked up.
'Tori knows he won't have a leg to stand on in court. She was aching to have another child, and her next pregnancy should be a blessed, joyful time. As of now, it's turning out to be anything but!'
Tori and Dean have yet to respond to OK!'s report.
