Candy Spelling blamed her daughter Tori’s estrangement from Aaron Spelling as the cause of her husband’s death. In an interview with 94.7 WMAS in Springfield, MA Candy said “I’ve always been trying to work on the relationship [with Tori]. 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.”
She continued with a shocking statement that Tori’s lack of relationship with her father killed him, literally.
“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.”
Wow. That’s pretty harsh.
After these comments hit the press, Candy released a statement saying “I didn’t intend to create headlines. I was asked a question about my daughter not speaking with my family, and I answered truthfully. My husband was very ill, and he had stopped eating and taking liquids. He called Tori on a daily basis, and never stopped asking if Tori had returned his call. We had to say no every day.”
Not exactly an apology…
