  • Dean McDermott reportedly took down his split announcement because Tori Spelling didn't want him to keep it up
  • He is reportedly serious about their split and has told Spelling he's "done"
  • McDermott was photographed moving things into a storage unit Monday

Dean McDermott is determined to officially end his marriage with Tori Spelling, a report says.

McDermott announced on Instagram over the weekend that he and Spelling are separating but later removed the post. Despite taking it down, an unnamed source told People that McDermott was "100[%] serious" about divorcing the actress. International Business Times could not independently verify the information.

"[Dean] 100[%] wants to get out of the marriage. He took down the post because Tori didn't want him to keep it up. But he's packing his bags and is 100[%] serious about it," the tipster claimed.

The insider added that McDermott hasn't moved out from the home he shares with the "Beverly Hills, 90210" alum due to financial reasons. He reportedly hasn't found an apartment he can "afford" following their separation.

"He can't take it anymore. He told her he's done," the source claimed.

McDermott was reportedly photographed moving some of his belongings into a storage unit in Los Angeles Monday.

In photos obtained by Page Six, the "Chopped Canada" host looked gloomy and did not sport his wedding ring as he moved boxes and duffel bags of items, which included tennis rackets and hockey sticks, into the repository.

McDermott wore a white T-shirt and distressed jean shorts. He paired his getup with sunglasses and navy Converse hightop sneakers.

McDermott's sighting came just two days after he announced on social media that his marriage to Spelling was over. The pair have been married for nearly two decades and share five children — Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, 6.

"It's with great sadness and a very very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that (sic) @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways, and start a new journey of our own," he wrote in a since-deleted post on Instagram.

He continued, "We will continue to work together as loving parents and guide and love our children through this difficult time. We ask that you all respect our privacy as we take this time to surround our family with love and work our way through this. Thank you all for your support and kindness."

However, a source told Us Weekly after the post was taken down that the couple was trying to make their marriage work and would not divorce.

"Tori and Dean are not getting a divorce," the unnamed tipster claimed. "Tori and Dean have been better than ever."

Spelling and McDermott were spotted together at their daughter Stella's 15th birthday party at the Beverly Hills Hilton earlier this month.

Spelling sparked divorce rumors in October 2021 when she was spotted seething outside a lawyer's office. At the time, she was photographed holding a note with the words "Pig pen – get quote," "AAA Jump Start Van" and finally "3pm Lawyer – assets – support – custody."
