Tori Spelling has been in the public eye for decades, so she knows firsthand just how much criticism comes along with it. Once she started a family with husband Dean McDermott, she also discovered the ugly side of sharing pictures of your kids on social media and has been bombarded with mom-shaming and unsolicited advice. Well, not the mom of 5 is opening up about a new kind of heartbreak -- she recently revealed that her kids have been severely bullied, mainly her eldest two, Liam and Stella.

Tori is a proud mom to five kids of her own, and one stepchild from husband Dean's previous marriage. And while Tori has developed thick skin after years in Hollywood, she never imagined that her young children would be the targets of such negativity. Tori posted a picture of her two oldest children, Liam and Stella, of when they were just 1 and 2 years old on Instagram. She then opened up about the bullying heartbreak: "My two 1st born... they have been thru so much bullying I can no longer not share and express ourselves," Tori begins the lengthy post.

Tori begins by talking about her daughter Stella, who is now 11 years old. "Innocent little being that only knew unconditional love, honesty, exploration, & kindness," Tori describes. "Between her last year at her elementary school or 1st year at her middle school this human had endured enough bullying for a lifetime." Tori then goes on to describe her daughter's bullying at school, and how the bully's parents donated much more money than her family could, so "they won". They moved the kids to a different school, but Stella's bullying got worse, with "comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn't even know about." Though the child was expelled, Tori describes that "the damage had been done".

Tori says that Stella now "associates her education with boys that have been so horrific to her. She wanted to empower other girls and be a business leader. She now has panic attacks and doesn't want to return to school." Tori then goes on to talk about Liam, who had similar bullying issues to Stella. She describes that his principal made Liam feel "stupid" because of the way he treated the 12-year-old. The new school that did do something about Stella's bullying did nothing about Liam's, so Tori said he was bullied so bad that ultimately "we had to leave."

Tori described her son as being "hilarious, smart, outgoing, and a creative kind guy" but then explained that the bullying made him feel differently. She concluded her post by saying that she was "hesitant" to post about the bullying because "as celebs we are sometimes judged for having problems others have." Tori didn't describe her kids' current situation too much or if they have a new school that is working for them, but whatever the case, we certainly hope Liam and Stella are able to find a safe space to learn and not have to worry about excessive bullying.
