Tori Spelling hit with default judgment over unpaid loan

Actress Tori Spelling and her husband Dean Mcdermott have reportedly been ordered to pay a $220,000 (£170,750) default judgment over an unpaid loan.
Bosses at City National Bank launched legal action against the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star and McDermott in December (16) for allegedly failing to pay back a $400,000 (£310,500) loan from 2012.
In papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the couple was accused of owing $185,700 (£144,200), plus $2,400 (£1,900) in interest and $680 (£530) in late charges as of 2 December (16). Executives at the bank also requested the pair repays $17,150 (£13,300) in funds reportedly overdrawn from its account.
Bosses at the bank were reportedly seeking $205,000 (£160,200) from the couple and in April (17) a judge scheduled a default judgement hearing for 22 May (17), but the couple reportedly failed to respond to the legal papers before the deadline. The judge subsequently ordered the judgment last week (ends26May17).
According to the Daily Mail, Spelling and McDermott were ordered to pay $202,000 (£156,800) plus $18,000 (£14,000) for a total of $220,000.
The news comes a month after the actress had $700,000 (£543,150) docked from her bank account by U.S. tax officials to cover an outstanding lien relating to earnings from 2014.
Tori and Dean, who welcomed their fifth child in early March (17), are also facing legal action from American Express bosses after failing to pay off their credit card debts.
