A source close to the situation explained:
Dean McDermott Called "Biggest Mooch" After Using Staffers To Create His Cookbook & Stiffing Their Bill!
Show them the MONEY, srsly!
Tori Spelling's hubby Dean McDermott has been a bad boy lately…
Not only is he being accused of cheating with multiple partners on his wife of seven years AND just checked into rehab for undisclosed issues, but he's also apparently stiffed the people who created his new cookbook!
Dean was doing well hosting the foodie competition show, Chopped Canada, so Harlequin publishing company decided to make a cookbook deal with him!
The Gourmet Dad was born, and Dean was reportedly given an advance of more than $250,000, partly to cover his expenses to make the book!
Food Stylist- $14,648.74
Prop stylist- $6,609.91
Canadian taxes- $6,613.40
These people have allegedly called, sent emails, and texts—but he's rudely paid no one!
Staff members are super pissed because they let Dean live in their homes for free during the book's inception, calling him, "The biggest mooch in Toronto."
We're told there will be lawsuits, and the photographer wants an injunction to hold the pictures until he gets paid!
This guy's life just keeps getting messier and messier!
