According to the actress, her 11-year-old daughter has “endured enough bullying for a lifetime” between her last year of elementary school and her first year of middle school.
“Her old school in Encino, we were told she is acting like ‘Patient zero’ and ‘she’s playing the victim’ & ‘we are talking to the parents of that said bully’ and ‘he is trying to change.’ He never did!” she wrote.
“Never any consequences for his actions towards my daughter and other kids,” Spelling continued. “This child’s parents are on the board of the school. They give a lot of money to this school. Financially, we aren’t able too. So, they won.”
The actress said that she and her husband, Dean McDermott, ultimately pulled their daughter out of school and moved her to another one, that supposedly “professed feelings and kindness as a priority.”
At this new school, Spelling alleged that Stella “was bullied so bad (including comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn’t even know about).”
The actress added: “This school did the right thing and expelled the boy but the damage had been done. She now associates her education with boys that have been so horrific to her. She wanted to empower others girls and be a business leader. She now has panic attacks and doesn’t want to return to school. This girl, 2 years ago told me she wanted to be President or work to empower women daily.”
Spelling detailed the alleged experiences of her 11-year-old son in the same post, writing that he had graduated from elementary school last year, “but not without the principal telling us he was ‘unmotivated’ & lazy.”
She continued, of her son, writing, “[He] thought from [the] way he was treated by her that he was ‘stupid.’ Beyond not the case. He is a hilarious, smart, outgoing, and a creative kind guy! Then, he started his new middle school. Same school as Stella. He was bullied to the point that he developed severe emotional based headaches and stomach aches. This school (who did help with Stella’s situation) did not help with Liams. He continued to be bullied so bad we had to leave.”
The actress admitted that she was “hesitant to post this bc as celebs we are sometimes judged for having problems others have,” before signing off with “#worriedmomma.”
