TORI SPELLING slammed a tabloid for “emotionally scarring” her kids with fake divorce news, celebrity gossip websites report.
Go tell ‘em, Tori!
And while the “Beverly Hills 90210″ alum can usually turn a blind eye to them, she felt the need to address Star magazine–who shamelessly reported that they were having a “$300 million divorce”–after one of her four children, 5-year-old son Liam, got “terrified” after seeing the cover at a local supermarket.
In the open letter that posted on her website, Tori recalled her son asking her:
“Who will get the kids?”
“By the time [Liam] was fastening himself into his car seat he was asking, ’Why is someone getting us?? Where are you and Dad going?’ He was anxiously biting his lower lip and his big blue eyes were filled with tears.”
Her reaction? The devastated actress added:
“My heart sank. How would I explain to my children that what these 3 writers who have never even met us but who claim to know the ins and outs of our relationship and have proudly put their names on this article are flat out writing lies.”
Addressing the ruthless tabloid indirectly, Tori said:
“I’ve built up a pretty thick skin to the lies and trash talking at this point. But my children are another story. Keep them out of it! I wonder if any of those 3 writers have children? How would they feel if their child had to read something so hurtful and confusing as what mine had to read? How do they sleep at night knowing they’ve potentially emotionally scarred and if nothing else terrified innocent children.”
She also defended her husband against the lies, writing:
“Again, you want to make inaccurate low blows at someone Star? Go for me! I can handle it. I always have. But don’t do it to a man that has done nothing but loved me and our children. He has stood by me during the good times and held my hand through the darkest moments of my life. I’m so blessed to have him as my partner in life and love and he is the best father to our four children.”
Tori wrote in conclusion:
“…Our children should never have to bear witness to lies and fabrications that affect their lives so that a media outlet can make money. That will always be wrong!”
What can you say about Tori‘s letter?
