Candy Spelling is blaming the death of her husband Aaron Spelling on the heartache he suffered from daughter Tori’s alleged decision to cut off contact from the family.
In an interview with 94.7 WMAS in Springfield, Mass. this morning, Spelling said that she and her “Beverly Hills 90210”star daughter’s relationship has been nonexistent for the past several years.
“Ive always been trying to work on the relationship [with Tori],” Spelling said. “I don’t know what the anger is. My daughter one day decided that she wasn’t speaking to my husband, myself and my son and that’s how it’s continued for the last, oh gosh, four or five years.”
Spelling went one step further however, saying Tori’s abandonment ultimately cost Aaron Spelling his will to live.
“It was sad because that’s what killed my husband actually. He just didn’t want to live after that. You know, He had done everything … he could possibly do for his daughter and she wanted no part of him once he couldn’t do anything for her.”
Aaron Spelling died on June 23, 2006. Just days after his death, Tori, 35, gave an interview to Us magazine, slamming her mother for an alleged relationship with family friend Mark Abramson.
Candy and Tori briefly reconciled in 2007 after the birth of Tori’s son Liam with husband Dean McDermott.
But in recent months, things have heated up again, with Candy arguing that Tori will not return any of her phone calls or emails, she has never met her granddaughter Stella and she doesn’t even know where her daughter lives.
Still Tori has denied any feud saying they aren’t “not talking” but have simply “not talked.”
"I love my mother. I've always loved her [and] no doubt she loves me. There's no feud. We simply never meshed,” Tori told People magazine. "My mother is who she is. I've become who I am. At some point I realized those two just didn't go together."
