Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Tori Spelling was sued by American Express after she allegedly failed to pay her current balance of $37, 981.97 last summer.

According to reports, the last payment was due on August 18, 2015 and she had to pay the minimum amount of $1,477. Her last transaction was when she tried to pay the amount of $1,070 on June 26 but was not able to complete the deal because it bounced. The American Express is now asking Spelling to pay her credit card debt including the interest as soon as possible.

In a 2014 episode of the reality show of Spelling called “True Tori ,” she said that she felt overwhelmed with her financial issues. She added, "I feel so responsible for so many people and I can't do it. [I can't handle] the responsibility of having to take care of so many people financially, the fear of that. [It] doesn't matter. I know people look at me and they're like, 'Oh, poor you.' Like, 'Boohoo, you have so many problems.'"

She also talked about her lifestyle in her 2013 memoir entitled “Spelling It Like It Is” that she grew up rich and even if she tried to embrace a simpler lifestyle, she can’t seem to let go of her expensive tastes.

More on Spelling, being sued is not the only issue about her as she and her husband Dean McDermott had some problems in their marriage. The two reportedly had trouble in paradise but were spotted last January 15 at the 50th birthday party of David Tutera . She gushed that they are now okay adding that their relationship keeps getting better.

Spelling added, “In our relationship, we’ve definitely had to, not start over, but rebirth the relationship as something that was new and kind of moving on towards the future. By doing that, we’ve had this great, amazing rebirth of our relationship, and it’s more exciting each day.”

Spelling is yet to comment about the lawsuit filed against her.
