Dean McDermott Chose Tori Spelling Over His Adopted Daughter! Heartbreaking! Find Out Why HERE!

dean mcdermott chose tori spelling over his adopted daughter get the details here


Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling have had their share of troubles recently, but this isn't the first time that Dean has experienced both family drama and trauma!

New information has been revealed that show Dean making an extremely tough decision back in 2006 when he divorced his now ex wife Mary Jo Eustace. The former couple had adopted a daughter named Lola, but when Dean left Eustace for Tori Spelling - he agreed to give up all paternal rights of a daughter he loved so much!

The information was discovered in court documents of Dean's divorce proceedings where, in a sworn declaration, Dean said:

“The birth and pending adoption of Lola in July 2004 was incredible, not only because she is a beautiful healthy girl, but I believed this was something that would finally make [Mary Jo] happy after several miscarriages, fertility drugs and a failed adoption in Canada. I fell instantly in love with Lola…”

However that joy was short lived after Dean decided to leave that marriage for Tori Spelling only one month later. Although it wasn't an easy decision, it also meant that Dean was leaving the adopted daughter that he adored. In the statements he said:

“[I] agreed that I would relinquish my legal rights to Lola, however, based on the fact [Mary Jo] was concerned our separation would jeopardize the adoption.”

Mary Jo Eustace's declaration also shared her own feeling of happiness of meeting her adopted daughter. She said:

“On July 7, 2005, Lola Elizabeth McDermott was born. This was an incredible experience. We received Lola when she was one hour old. [Dean and Mary Jo's son] Jack held her first. He had tears in his eyes. I spent the next day, July 8, with the birth mother. We bonded incredible and shared life stories. Jack is incredibly bonded with Lola.”

It wasn't too long before Dean then dropped the bombshell news on his ex wife. She said:

“Dean McDermott told me he was in love with Tori Spelling, that she was his soulmate, that she loved him unconditionally, and that they had sat down and made a plan. He then said, ‘We will take care of the kids, and money will not be an issue.’ I was crying uncontrollably, and asked Dean McDermott if he was going to divorce me and marry Tori Spelling. Petitioner responded, ‘Yes.’ [Later he] signed a release which has been provided to the adoption attorney pursuant to which he has waived all parental rights to Lola.”

Such a sad story!

We wonder if Dean has continued his relationship with his once adopted daughter Lola, and how their relationship is these days.

It would make this story even sadder if they weren't close considering the connection they seemed to have forged when Dean first adopted her!

Life can be so hard sometimes.

    So Vicky thought she was going to have a lasting relationship with a man who would completely abandon his newborn daughter? She's an idiot!

  4. Katie says – reply to this


    A man that left his kid for a women?

    Um, that's a man?

    This is not NEW (or news, for that matter)! And what woman would want to be with a douche who gives up their newborn child for her? The perfect woman made for a douche…they really ARE meant for each other!!

    Perez, why do you feel so bad for Tori? She's part of the reason why Lola doesn't have a Dad, although you can't lure away a happy man. COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, MARY JO!! Ew!

    That Dean McDermott is nothing but a dirty rotter and habitual liar. If Tori stays with him, she gets what she deserves.

    I never comment on these posts, but I must say, Dean seems like a real piece of shit.

    Woman will come and go in the spot light but a child is always there at your side. He should rethink about what it means to be a man off of tori spellings side.

    This just proves what a piece of shit this white trash loser is. He is so disgusting and dirty looking, what can Tori possibly see in this loser?

    This guy needed to be educated as a child to not turn into a ridicolous 40 yr brat adult. Not fighting for a child you decided to raise and commit to life just because she is adopted means you're a shit. I think he's crazy to get a huge amount of money and leave Tori and his own kids too. If he could, he would.
