The real estate agent Tori Spelling contacted when she was looking to move after finding "extreme mold" infestation in her family home is speaking out following the release of their horrific text exchange.
Days after Spelling posted a screenshot of her messages with Los Angeles realtor Robert Vinson, of Vinson Group Real Estate, to her Instagram Story on Friday, July 21, Vinson explained to a news outlet that he responded to her in the rather harsh way he had because he didn't believe it was actually the Beverly Hills, 90210 star.
“Celebrity impersonation is rabid in Hollywood. As a real estate broker I have a fiduciary responsibility to be certain of the identity of the person we are dealing with," the agent explained to a publication via email. "Ms. Spelling texted me asking for a one month rental."
He continued, "Concerned that I was dealing with a scam I texted ‘How can I confirm it is you.' I never received a call back from the text. I am now being publicly shamed for my due diligence."
“I sent Ms. Spelling the following text after being bombarded with vulgar messages from her followers: I am sorry about the message: I was raised by a single mother and understand the challenges you are dealing with. When you did not call me I thought I was being spoofed by someone who was pretending to be you," Vinson concluded.
In the shocking back-and-forth, Vinson sent Spelling a text that read, "Feel free to call," as he was testing to see whether Spelling was who she claimed to be. After not hearing from her for two hours, he sent a message to Spelling that was likely meant for another recipient.
"The latest bizarre inquiry," he wrote, to which Spelling replied: "I'm sorry?"
"Im assuming that wasn't meant for me," Spelling sent in a separate text.
Vinson responded: “It is more for Karen. Tori Spelling has been asking for a 1 month rental. If you follow her situation on TMZ it is all amusing.”

“This is Tori Spelling,” she answered. “Wow! Human empathy and kindness prevails. Kids in crisis is amusing.”
