Dailymail.com reached out to Spelling’s reps for comment on Wednesday’s events.
Spelling had not addressed the turbulent chain of events on her Instagram as of early Wednesday evening to her 1.7 million Instagram followers. Her most recent post this morning documented an outing she took with her children to Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights.
She said, ‘Thank you @unistudios for our family yearly tradition of attending @horrornights … we had best time!’
McDermott was pictured dropping off new gal pal Calo at LAX airport Tuesday, helping her remove her luggage from their vehicle as she was set to take a flight. The new couple was pictured holding hands while visiting the Department of Social Services West Valley in Chatsworth, California last week.
Wednesday’s tense events marked the latest in what’s been a trying year for Spelling, who has dealt with insecure living conditions, physical illness, money problems and love life issues, after her separation from McDermott after 17 years.

Spelling, who separated from McDermott in June, was seen in August staying in an RV park in Ventura County, California with her five kids. Prior to that, the family was seen staying at a Ventura County $100-a-night motel.
Spelling in May left a rental home she and her children had been staying in amid what she said was a continuing issue with mold that impacted the family’s health.
The litany of tough breaks mark a reversal of fortune for Spelling, who grew up immersed in Hollywood luxury, as her late father Aaron Spelling produced hit shows such as Dynasty, Charlie’s Angels and The Love Boat, as well as Melrose Place, Charmed and Beverly Hills, 90210.
Aaron left behind a $500 million empire, with Tori’s inheritance coming in at $800,000.
She has had a complicated relationship with her mother Candy over the years: Aaron Spelling passed away in June of 2006, which was less than a year after Tori made headlines in 2005 for her extramarital affair with McDermott while both were married; her to Charlie Shahnaian, and McDermott to Eustace.
She and McDermott eloped in Fiji in May of 2006, just a month before Aaron’s death.
In her 2008 book sTORI Telling, Tori said that her family was disappointed in her eloping with McDermott, and both the mother and daughter have publicly spoken about their complicated relationship in the years since.
While things appear to be on decent terms – with Tori wishing her mother a happy birthday last month – it was not immediately clear if Candy has offered to help her daughter financially amid her recent struggles.
Tori appeared to be recovering after she spent multiple days in a hospital with an unknown illness over the summer, as she entered a medical facility on August 17.

On August 20, she posted an image of her hospital wristband on social media, while praising her children. She said at the time, ‘Grateful and so proud of my strong, brave, resilient and kind to the core children who remain positive no matter what comes our way.’
Before her hospital stint, Spelling was seen working on a project in Los Angeles.
A source told DailyMail.com earlier this month that Spelling was ‘having some money issues,’ and looking toward returning to the reality TV genre as a result.
‘Tori is caught between a rock and a hard place right now as she is trying to figure out what her next job is going to be,’ the source said. ‘With the strike in full effect, she is looking into doing some more in the reality competition show world.’
