This information comes a day after her 90210 co-star Ian Ziering showed his support for her on Saturday. 

In an interview with PEOPLE, he revealed that the cast is still a tight knit group and they are still ‘like family.’

The 59-year-old actor said, ‘We support each other through life’s ups and downs after the show, we still care about each other.  

‘So whenever there’s a victory, we all pull together and lend support and pride, and when there’s challenging times, we come together and offer whatever support we can from wherever we are,’ he finished.

Spelling and McDermott separated in June 2023 after 18 years of marriage and called it quits following a 10 month separation citing irreconcilable differences.

According to legal documents obtained by DailyMail.com, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star filed for divorce just three days after she was seen in tears after an emotionally-charged reunion with her estranged husband in Los Angeles.

The exes were spotted meeting up on Tuesday at a local Public Storage facility to sort through several boxes of their personal belongings in the wake of their shock split last summer.

They appeared to go through a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the meet-up, at times chatting amicably and then bickering.

'Her main focus was to find a new home for her kids, and they now have a rental... she takes things day by day for now,' the source said

The former couple share five children – with Spelling asking for sole physical custody of the kids, while also asking for joint legal custody.

McDermott and the blonde bombshell are parents to Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, six.

Per the legal documents, the date of separation was listed as June 17, 2023, but she is open to her ex getting visitation rights.

Spelling is asking for spousal support from him and asks the court to remove his ability to request spousal support from her.

She notes their shared assets and property need to be determined during the divorce case. There is no mention of a pre-nuptial agreement.

On Friday, a source told PEOPLE that the former couple had gotten to, ‘a better place after everything reached a crisis point.’

Spelling was also protective of their children amidst their marital issues and Dean’s struggles when it came to sobriety.

‘She was being a mama bear protecting her cubs and gave him an ultimatum that he had to get help in order to spend time with the kids,’ the insider added.

‘He did get that help last year and has been doing well. They’re both ready to move on with their lives and focused on making sure the kids are in a healthy environment.’

Per Page Six, his new woman is a senior account executive at Conscious Community Global in Los Angeles and is from the East Coast.
