New reports about the couple's imminent split came through an insider, who sang tunes of the "Chopped Canada" host's broken vows. The informant told PEOPLE the TV personality would not uphold his promise of better or worse as the 56-year-old was tired.

According to the source, the Canadian sensation's since-deleted post held his true intentions about his marriage to Spelling. However, he removed the breakup announcement because of the "Beverly Hills, 90210" star.

“[Dean] 100 percent wants to get out of the marriage. He took down the post because Tori didn’t want him to keep it up,” the insider explained. “But he’s packing his bags and is 100 percent serious about it.”

The anonymous individual continued painting a picture of no return, stating that McDermott was ready to leave his matrimonial home. The only reason the entertainer had not relocated was allegedly due to financial constraints. Per the informant, the 56-year-old had not found an apartment he could “afford.”

Shedding more light on the father of six's interest in divorce, the source added: “He can’t take it anymore. He told her he’s done.” Although Spelling was yet to address the speculations, her beau seemingly aired their joint approval for divorce in his since-deleted Instagram message.

The "Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever" alum claimed it was with "great sadness and a very, very heavy heart" that he and the Los Angeles native were separating after 18 years. Writing on behalf of the couple, McDermott noted the pair would continue to raise their five children amicably and implored fans to respect their privacy.

Problems in the spouses' marriage first made waves in 2021 after the "Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?" actress dropped her family's holiday card without McDermott's face. Although Spelling explained her husband was shooting a movie when the picture was taken, insiders stated otherwise.

According to a source, the pair were "not in a good place and have been evaluating their relationship." The informant claimed things had been "very chilly between them for a long time," and they were only putting on a show for their children. 

"They have been through the wringer before, but they've always gotten out of it. They've been living separate lives. They will still have family meals and occasional outings, but it's for the kids," the insider claimed.

The speculated exes tied the knot on May 7, 2006, and renewed their vows four years later. They share two daughters and three sons, while the Canadian actor welcomed another son from a previous relationship.
