Tori Spelling 'being sued by AMEX over $40k bill'

Tori Spelling is reportedly being sued by American Express.

The 42-year-old actress is said to have a balance of $37,981.97 on her AMEX card, but has not made a single payment since then.

According to legal documents obtained by, Tori's last attempt to pay off the debt came on June 26 last year when she tried to pay $1,070. However, the payment bounced.

American Express are now demanding full payment of the remaining balance, which will also include interest.

Tori has yet to comment on this latest legal drama.

Last year, Tori was the one doing the suing when she filed a lawsuit against the Benihana restaurant chain back in September, alleging she slipped and burned herself when she visited one of their branches in Encino, California.

In the papers, she claims she was hospitalised after she fell onto the hibachi grills, receiving "deep second and third degree burn injuries".

Tori sued for the medical bills as well as "general damage" the incident caused and a loss of earnings.

The mother-of-four and husband Dean McDermott have been open about their financial struggles in the past.

In an episode of her show 'True Tori' in October 2014, Tori said: "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.'"
