The embarrassing fight between Dean McDermott and his ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace over his unpaid child support is finally over. It didn’t end with Dean leaving a goodbye note to Tori Spelling on the kitchen counter (“Adios, mamacita!“) and running away to Tijuana to live as long as possible under an assumed name (El Ojos de Possum). E! News says that The Deaner has actually agreed to fork over the money he owes to Mary Jo.
Mary Jo agreed to withdraw her lawsuit against Dean earlier this month after he allegedly cried poor in court, claiming he had fallen on “hard times.” She won’t be re-filing any time soon. A source tells E! that Dean and Mary Jo recently came to an agreement outside of court. Dean reportedly owed Mary Jo $100,800 in unpaid child support, interest, and attorney’s fees, and he has agreed to pay her in installments until his debt is cleared. Dean cut Mary Jo a check for $6000 last Monday, and will send her another $2500 by the end of the month.
E! News says that Dean has until July 1, 2020 to pay it off. Sure, I totally see that happening. If Mary Jo wants to actually get paid, she’s got to threaten him with a penalty for missed payment. Like making sure every tattoo shop is mysteriously too busy to hook him up with any more dirt bag ink. You’ve got to hit him where it hurts. And we all know that’s not his bank account, since that lost feeling ages ago.
