It looks as though Tori Spelling is going to have to find her own way to shell out almost $38,000 for a lawsuit over an unpaid American Express bill.
Her mother Candy told TMZ on Tuesday that while she is more than happy to help the actress out with the necessities, she draws the line at 'extravagance'.
The publication asked the 70-year-old widow of producer Aaron Spelling if she'd be willing to help out, and she brusquely replied that she already has been.
Enough is enough: Candy Spelling (R) says she has been helping daughter Tori out financially with the necessities, but she won't pay for the actress's 'extravagance'

'I’ve been helping out and I’m paying all her bills now,' Candy said. 'I’m not paying extras like that. I’m not paying any back payments – just for the house and the kids’ school and the food. That’s all.'
TMZ then asked how Tori had managed to rack up such a large credit card bill, and she quipped: 'I don’t know. Extravagance I guess.'
Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori, 42, who shares four children with husband Dean McDermott, is yet to comment on the lawsuit.
Money matters: Tori famously received just $800,000 of her father's multi-million dollar fortune when he died, with the rest going to Candy. Mother and daughter are pictured here in June 2015
American Express are allegedly suing her for $37,981.97 - the full amount of her balance, which includes interest.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Tori last tried to pay off the debt on June 26 with a payment of $1,070. However, the payment bounced.

'I've been helping out': Candy says she pays for Tori's house and food, and for her children's schooling. Tori and husband Dean McDermott are seen with Finn, Liam, Hattie and Stella last month
And Candy revealed why when promoting her memoir Candy At Last in 2014, telling The New York Times: 'She would close a store and drop $50,000 to $60,000. I never did anything like that. She just went crazy.'
Tori and Dean have made no secret of their financial struggles, which were documented on the Mystery Girls star's reality show True Tori.
'I feel so responsible for so many people and I can't do it,' she said during an October 2014 episode. '[I can't handle] the responsibility of having to take care of so many people financially, the fear of that. [It] doesn't matter.

'I know people look at me and they're like, "Oh, poor you." Like, "Boohoo, you have so many problems."'
In her 2013 book Spelling It Like It Is, she wrote: 'It's not my fault I'm an uptown girl stuck in a midtown life. I was raised in opulence. My standards are ridiculously high. We can't afford that lifestyle, but when you grow up silver spoon it's hard to go plastic.
'It's no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone's wildest dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can't seem to let go of my expensive tastes.
Sharing her struggle: On a 2014 episode of her reality show True Tori, the 42-year-old broke down in tears as she discussed her financial problems
'Even when my tastes aren't fancy, they're still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way.'
Tori has recently filming a Lifetime remake of her 1996 TV movie Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?, which James Franco wrote and is executive producing.
The actress played the central character Laurel, whose mother realises that her teenage daughter's boyfriend is a murderer and a psychopath.
This time around, Tori is portraying the mother. The film will air on Lifetime later this year.
