Spelling: 'I Never Said Goodbye'
LATEST: TORI SPELLING is devastated she never had the chance to say goodbye to her father AARON SPELLING before he died, because of her strained relationship with her mother CANDY. The former BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 actress has hit out at her mother, claiming she was betrayed and wasn't informed how seriously ill her father actually was. The 33-year-old has been estranged from her family since her divorce from CHARLIE SHANIAN last year (05) and whirlwind wedding to Canadian actor DEAN MCDERMOTT. Tori says she had only seen her 83-year-old father on one occasion since last September (05). She tells American publication Us Weekly she didn't realise her visit on 11 June (06) with her father would be her last. She explains, "I was led to believe he had more time. And so I never said goodbye. "The last time I saw him, it was sort of a goodbye, but not a formal one. I just didn't know." "Honestly, I believe 100 per cent that (he was holding on for me). And part of me knew as soon as I saw him that he would start to let go." Tori says their final conversation took place just days after his stroke on Father's Day (18JUN06). She adds, "The last words he spoke to me were over the phone a couple days before he passed. He said, 'I love you, babe.'"
