Things just keep getting worse for Dean McDermott, the husband of Tori Spelling. Old court documents have resurfaced that show his ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustice, previously accused him of abusing cocaine.

McDermott cheated on Eustice with Spelling in 2005 and their divorce took place shortly after. In a sworn declaration made by Eustice that year, she claimed that McDermott approached her during a family gathering in 1999, threw a bag of cocaine on a table, and declared “I have a cocaine problem. [Dean] started crying uncontrollably and was shaking and said that he should go to the emergency room.” She also said in the declaration that he admitted to using cocaine around their young son, Jack, and that she assisted in helping him enter a support group for cocaine addicts.

But after briefly finding sobriety, Eustice said that McDermott admitted in April 1999 that “he had started using cocaine again and that he had a party at the house while I was away.” Her declaration also accused McDermott of reckless spending and violently beating their dog with his fists. McDermott has yet to respond to the re-surfaced court document.

Meanwhile, Spelling was forced to deny rumors of anorexia last month after photos surfaced of her appearing dangerously thin and reports claimed that she had dropped to 92 pounds. Sources claim that McDermott cheating on her during a business trip to Canada, the fallout of which is being chronicled on their Lifetime reality show True Tori, has caused immense stress which has resulted in her barely eating.

"She's extremely depressed right now and feels alone. She has always been jealous and insecure, but now her confidence is at an all-time low,” said a source to Radar Online. "She feels like she did everything she could to keep Dean happy and attracted to her, but it wasn't enough."
