Tori Spelling opened up in a candid Instagram post on February 22 about her oldest kids Stella, 11, and Liam, 12, and the amount of bullying they experienced. She claimed the bullying was so severe, the children were forced to change schools.
The 46-year-old posted a throwback photo of Liam and Stella when they were toddlers and explained in a lengthy post the struggles her children have gone through. "My two first born... they have been thru so much bullying I can no longer not share and express ourselves," Tori began.
The mother of five continued, "Between her last year at her elementary school or the first year at her middle school, Stella has endured enough bullying for a lifetime. Her old school in Encino, we were told ‘We are talking to the parents of that bully’ and ‘he is trying to change.’ He never did! Never any consequences for his actions towards my daughter and other kids. This child’s parents are on the board of the school. They give a lot of money to this school. Financially, we aren’t able to. So, they won.”
The BH90210 actress revealed that she moved her kids to a new school "that professed feelings and kindness as a priority" to try to escape the harassment. "This time, my daughter was bullied so bad ( including comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn’t even know about). This school did the right thing and expelled the boy but the damage had been done," she said.
She then explained that Liam graduated last year from the Encino school, however, his principal allegedly told Tori and husband Dean McDermott that he was "unmotivated and lazy."
"Poor guy thought from way he was treated by her that he was 'stupid.' Beyond not the case," the daughter of Aaron Spelling added. "Liam is a hilarious, smart, outgoing, and a creative kind guy."
Tori went on to explain how he started at the same middle school as Stella. "He was bullied to the point that he developed severe emotional based headaches and stomach aches. This school (who did help with Stella’s situation) did not help with Liam's. He continued to be bullied so bad we had to leave. I was hesitant to post this because as celebs we are sometimes judged for having problems others have," Tori concluded.
She then added a crying face emoji and the hashtag, "Worried momma." Tori and Dean, 53, are also parents to daughter Hattie, 8, and sons Finn, 7, and Beau, 2.
