Candy Spelling Denies Dean McDermott's Claims

Candy Spelling has responded to claims Dean McDermott made during his very candid Access Hollywood Live interview.

On Wednesday, Dean – who revealed he's leaving his Lifetime series "True Tori" – was asked about his family's relationship with wife Tori's mom, Candy Spelling.

Billy Bush and Kit Hoover asked Dean if Candy has shared any of her late husband's estate with Tori.

"In my recovery, all I can be is honest and no. No. There's no financial help," Dean claimed.

But following Dean's claims, Candy's rep told Access otherwise.

"Candy has provided financial help in the past and has offered repeatedly to pay for the children's private schooling and Tori has never told her where to send the money," her rep said in a statement to Access.

In Wednesday's Access Hollywood Live interview, Dean also claimed, "We see [Candy] about eight times a year -- holidays and kids' birthdays."

According to Candy's rep, the lack of quality time spent together is due to her daughter and son-in-law.

"Candy reaches out often to see them and unfortunately Tori and Dean are not often responsive," her rep continued.
