Tori Spelling has been slapped with a lawsuit for neglecting serious credit card debt.
The True Tori star has been sued by American Express for failing to pay her $37,981.97 credit card balance, E! News reported.
American Express is demanding the full balance currently owed, including interest.
Spelling hasn't made a payment on the card since last summer. According to court documents, her last activity was on June 26, when Spelling reportedly attempted to pay $1,070 but the transaction didn't go through.
The reality TV star's last payment was due August 18, 2015 but she never coughed up the $1,477 minimum payment, E! News reported.
Reports have circulated for years Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott have been struggling financially. In 2013, Spelling admitted her family runs into money problems -- especially because she was raised living a rich lifestyle and has four kids to support as well as loved ones -- but McDermott later denied being completely broke.
Spelling was born into wealth as the daughter of Aaron Spelling, a famous Hollywood producer. In her career, she's starred in numerous reality TV spinoffs with McDermott as well as designed a jewelry line and released a memoir.
Spelling and McDermott wed in 2006 and welcomed their first child together in March 2007. In addition to their four children, McDermott also has a son from his previous marriage.
