Tori Spelling slammed haters who said she's using her kids for money from advertisers on her latest Instagram post. The actress clapped back at trolls after she shared her family's Christmas photo and tagged brands.
The photo featured Tori's husband Dean McDermott, and their five kids — Liam, 12, Stella, 11, Hattie, 8, Finn, 7, and Beau, 2, rocking matching Christmas-themed onesies. They posed beside a a beautifully decorated tree and the ambiance was full of holiday cheer.
"Having a 'snow' ball putting the finishing touches on our amazing @kingofchristmas tree ? in our chic and cozy holiday family pjs by @santandabel xoxo (scroll thru photos to see from family portrait to faux snowball fight) ❄️?☃️#countdowntochristmas," the BH90210 star, 46, captioned the playful snaps. She tagged the sleepwear line, Sant and Abel, and the artificial Christmas tree shop, King Of Christmas, in her post.
Users took to the comments and wondered if Tori was using her kids for paid promotions. One wrote, "Is there anything this family will not do or wear for money!! Wow, these poor kids." Another fan commented, "It is sad how you use your children to promote yourself and make money. Do what you gotta do but let the kids make their decisions when they are old enough to."
"I wonder if your kids get tired of being directed and produced for these paid promotions," another user said. One wrote, "Too bad your kids don't look like they're having fun." The Stori Telling author replied to one of the haters and said, "The answer is no bc we weren’t paid for anything in this picture. This is our tree and these are their jammies. Is that ok with you?” In response to one commenter, Tori said, "Just FYI we were not paid for anything in this picture. No exchange of $ at all. We are just complete fans of these products."
“Didn’t make any $ from this picture and not promoting anything aside from sharing our actual lives. This is us. Please make informed judgements," she wrote to another.
On the December 13 episode of her show Tori Tried and True, the daughter of Aaron Spelling admitted she's not great with money amid her family's financial problems. Fans asked Tori on her show about her financial management skills despite her ongoing lawsuits from two banks and her federal and state tax debt.
“I am not great with money, and I know a lot of people read a lot of stuff about my financial things going on,” she explained. “I had a business manager since I was 18 years old, so I never handled any of my money. Everything, everything, went to them, so unfortunately, I never quite learned about money. Now raising kids of my own, I’m like, that is so important.”
