So why did Randy and Tori Spelling have such financial struggles after their father died?Despite passing away with a fortune estimated in the half-billion dollar range, Aaron Spelling reportedly left about 0,000 to each of his children. The bulk of the estate went to their mother, Candy, but even non-family members were included in the estate plan, with ,000 going to an interior decorator and ,000 to a manicurist.Sounds pretty great — unless it was all taken away from you as an adult.As Tori Spelling wrote in her autobiography, it’s not easy going from having a silver spoon in your mouth to a plastic one.Tori Spelling said that she met with her father before he died, and he sincerely believed that 0,000 was enough for Tori to be “set for life.” She feels her father didn’t appreciate the value of money, even though he had so much of it.
A no contest clause penalizes heirs who challenge wills and trusts in court, potentially causing them to lose their entire inheritances.
Complicating the matter was the fact that Tori and Candy were estranged and did not speak for years.
Recently, with the birth of her four children, Tori and her mother have reconciled to a point, and Candy has set up trust funds for her grandchildren.
