Is Dean McDermott Cheating on Tori Spelling with a Younger Woman?

Sugar Daddy Dean McDermott Cheating on Tori SpellingThis year has been big for celebrity cou­ple breakups, espe­cially age-gap cou­ples. First, Michael Dou­glas and Cather­ine Zeta-Jones revealed that they were tak­ing a break from their 13-year mar­riage, then Clint East­wood and Dina Ruiz ended their 17-year mar­riage, and then Court­ney Stod­den dumped her hus­band, Doug Hutchi­son, after two years of marriage.

Before 2013 comes to a close, we may have to add another celebrity cou­ple to that list: Tori Spelling and Dean McDer­mott. Although there’s only a seven-year age dif­fer­ence between them, the rea­son for their mar­riage trou­ble has a lot to do with a much big­ger age difference—McDermott has been accused of cheat­ing on his wife with a younger woman, 28-year-old Emily Goodhand.

The affair is said to have started in early Decem­ber in Toronto, where the real­ity TV star was pro­mot­ing his new series, Chopped Canada. He report­edly met Good­hand at a group din­ner and was flirt­ing with her as the group headed to a high-end hotel nearby to con­tinue the party. “His per­son­al­ity is very charm­ing,” Good­hand told Us Weekly. “I was drink­ing, so what he said is blurry. But he was talk­ing about his kids and work.”

The young woman claimed that McDer­mott slipped her a piece of paper with his hotel room num­ber on it, along with a copy of his room key. She then went into his room where they had sex; he allegedly told her that he was in a “sex­less mar­riage” and asked her to stay and cud­dle after their romp in the sack. The next day, McDer­mott report­edly invited Good­hand back to his hotel room, where he showed her part of a sex tape that he had made with Spelling back in 2009.

Although nei­ther Spelling nor McDermott’s reps have con­firmed or denied the affair, McDer­mott was notice­ably absent from the fam­ily pic­tures that Spelling posted on Twit­ter over Christ­mas. And even though the celebrity cou­ple has appeared to be pretty happy over the course of their rela­tion­ship, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched for McDer­mott to cheat—his rela­tion­ship with Spelling started as an affair.

On top of that, Spelling has revealed that she’s always wor­ried about her hus­band stray­ing. “I often get wor­ried that Dean is going to cheat on me. If the phone rings and it’s a girl’s voice, I have to ask if he’s hav­ing an affair,” she wrote in her 2010 book, Uncharted Ter­ri­TORI. “[He] tells me over and over again that he would never do that.”

The celebrity cou­ple has been mar­ried since May 2006 and they have four kids together—the old­est is six years old and the youngest is 16 months.

What do you think: Would you trust your part­ner to be faith­ful if your own rela­tion­ship started as an affair?
