Tori Spelling was ordered to pay over $38,000 in her ongoing credit card lawsuit last week.

News outlets reported Monday that the 43-year-old actress must pay her past due balance of $37,981.97 to American Express, plus $855 in court costs.

American Express sued Spelling over the debt in January. Court documents showed the actress had last attempted to make a payment in June 2015, but that the $1,070 transaction failed.

Spelling's mom, Candy Spelling, told TMZ at the time that she was helping the actress financially.

The 71-year-old writer claimed she was "paying all [of Tori's] bills" but not "extras" like the credit card debt.

"I'm not paying any back payments. Just for the house and the kids' school and the food," she said. "I don't know [why she missed payments]. Extravagance, I guess."

Spelling herself attributed her financial troubles to her privileged upbringing in her 2013 memoir, "Spelling It Like It Is. "

The actress is the daughter of Candy Spelling and late producer Aaron Spelling.

"It's no mystery why I have money problems," she wrote.

"I grew up rich beyond anyone's dreams. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can't seem to let go of my expensive tastes ... I can't afford to live like this anymore."

Spelling is known for playing Donna Martin on "Beverly Hills, 90210" and has since appeared in a number of TV movies.

She and husband Dean McDermott also starred on several reality series, including Lifetime's "True Tori."
