Tori Spelling has filed for divorce from estranged husband Dean McDermott following a 10 month separation and 18 year marriage. 

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 50, filed for divorce on Friday – just three days after Spelling was seen in tears after an emotionally-charged reunion with her estranged husband, 57, in Los Angeles, exclusive DailyMail.com photos showed. 

Spelling lists the date of their separation as June 17, 2023 and cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.

The former couple share five minor children – with Spelling asking for sole physical custody of the kids, while also asking for joint legal custody. 

She is open to McDermott getting visitation rights.

Spelling is asking for spousal support from McDermott and asks the court to remove his ability to request spousal support from her.

She notes their shared assets and property need to be determined during the divorce case. There is no mention of a pre-nuptial agreement.

The exes were spotted meeting up on Tuesday at a local Public Storage facility to sort through several bins and boxes of their personal belongings in the wake of their shock split last summer. 

The former couple appeared to be on good terms of late, even recently getting together to celebrate their son’s birthday along with Dean’s current girlfriend, Lily Calo, earlier this month. 

But things took a turn on Tuesday, when tensions flared as they shuffled things in and out of the storage unit, and resulted in Tori breaking down in tears. 

The couple – who announced their split in June – appeared to go through a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the meet-up, at times chatting amicably and then bickering, with Tori at one point launching a large plastic bag of personal items into the air. 

Dean, 57, appeared to comfort her afterwards, before the couple had a more civilized conversation while sitting in the back of the opened SUV. 

The exes eventually bid farewell, but once alone, the 90210 alum became overwhelmed with emotions and began sobbing at the wheel of her car.

Tori, who was dressed casually in a black crop top, jeans, and Converse sneakers, took a moment to gather herself before finally taking off with her possessions.

The dramatic reunion comes almost ten months into Tori and Dean’s separation, following 18 years of marriage. 

The couple appeared to have reached a healthy place in their split in late February when they were spotted together at a park in Agoura Hills for the first time since they parted ways. 

Although the two didn’t appear to smile, they seemed somewhat casual in demeanor, and both Tori and Dean relaxed against the metal railing at times.

It’s unclear what brought the two together after seemingly spending months apart. 

And just a week later, the exes further proved that they are handling their breakup maturely, after Tori, Dean, and his new girlfriend Lily, were seen hanging out together at one of their kids’ birthday parties at a Dave & Busters in LA.

The actor later spoke out about the blended family affair in an interview with Page Six, saying his ex and new partner ‘get along fabulously.’ 

Dean has been going strong with Lily for six months now, and admitted he has introduced his new girlfriend to the five children he shares with Tori.

‘Met the kids, things are going welly well,’ he added. 

Asked how Tori and Lily’s relationship is generally, Dean said: ‘They hang out when we’re all together. They’ll separate… they go and play video games together and then they go chat in the corner,’ he explained, seemingly referring to son Beau’s recent birthday at the arcade. 

Before their unlikely reunion in LA, Tori and Dean were last pictured together in June of 2023, when they attended the Luskin Orthopedic Institute For Children Gala with four of their five kids.

Just over a week later, Dean announced in an Instagram post that he and his wife were separating, though he quickly deleted the post. 

Dean seems to have found some much-need stability with his new girlfriend Lily in recent months, but Tori has had a stressful series of moves for her and their children. 

She became functionally homeless when she moved out of the family home into a $100-per-night hotel — which she said was due to a dangerous mold infestation at the family home — in July of last year.

A month later, she and the kids — Liam, 16; Stella, 15; Hattie, 12; Finn, 11; and Beau, who turns seven on March 2 — were seen temporarily living in an RV in a trailer park.

Tori seemed to have a more settled living situation when she subsequently moved her family into a rental house later in the year, but that didn’t pan out for unforeseeable reasons.

The actress and her kids’ time in the new home came to an end in October after an armed neighbor barricaded himself in a nearby house and took a hostage.

Tori and her family were forced to quickly evacuate the house by a SWAT team responding to the frightening standoff.

But things were looking up for the former primetime soap star after DailyMail.com exclusively reported earlier this week that she had moved into a $15,000-per-month rental home in Woodland Hills.

Late last month DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Tori, 50,  is no longer 'homeless' and has upgraded to a stunning contemporary two-story, five-bedroom, three-bath home with over 3,000 square feet. The fully furnished digs in the west San Fernando Valley rents for a hefty $15,000 a month.

The San Fernando Valley property features 3,000 square feet of space and boasts five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The rental allows for cats and dogs, though it’s unclear if Tori will be allowed to bring along some of the more exotic pets that Dean claimed made the end of their time together particularly miserable. 

In his exclusive two-part interview with DailyMail.com from November, the actor revealed that he and Tori hadn’t regularly shared a bedroom since 2017, due to her insistence about letting animals stay in the room.
