TORI Spelling posted yet another holiday photo without husband Dean McDermott and fans think it's a clue that the marriage is secretly over.
On Tuesday, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 48, posted a photo of herself holding a stocking while posing next to five stocking s with her kids' names on them.
There was no stocking for Dean, 55, but that didn't seem to bother fans.
One commenter wrote: "All are so cute! And love your hair!"
Another added: "Beautiful Picture Tori. Love all your Festivities."
A third commenter said: "So cute!! Love it."
A few commenters did take note of Dean's absence from the mantle, with one writing: "Where is Dean's name Tori?" and another adding, "No dean?"
A second commenter replied: "At what point are they going to publicly acknowledge that they are not together and haven't been for a while? All these subtle hints…"
A third Instagram user wrote: "Wish y'all would just announce deans gone. Separated, divorced, makes u puke, whatever the case, just say it truthfully. No stocking kinda speaks volumes so……"
OUT IN THE COLD
These aren't the first holiday pics Tori has excluded Dean from.
Earlier this week she posted a holiday card on Instagram.
All five of her children were pictured, but Dean was noticeably absent.
Commenters again took note, addressing it in the comments.
One fan asked: "Where's your husband."
Another added: "So she def split from Dean! Wow!" while a third asked, "Are she and Dean separated?"
Tori ignored questions and speculation about her marriage.
She thanked the company "for once again bringing out happy family to life," calling the card her "favorite holiday card yet."
Over the weekend, she and her kids posed for another festive photo, once again without Dean.
Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, Finn, nine, and Beau, four, posed alongside the actress between two Christmas trees full of decorations.
The family was pictured standing under a mistletoe and sign that read: "Believe."
Tori said in her caption that she wished the holiday season and the cheer it brings could be around "365 days a year."
Liam, 14, was also missing from the snap.
The mom-of-five said she and her kids had the "best time" together, adding that she got "so many beautiful vintage and modern decor pieces for the holidays."
PARTY OF ONE
Before Tori's holiday celebrations, Dean marked a major milestone of his own.
He celebrated his birthday, showing fans the gifts his kids had gotten him, including a handmade work of art from Hattie.
Dean showed off two canvases full of horror-inspired art.
In the clip he shared: "It's my 55th birthday today and I am starting to open presents. Got one here from Hattie Cat for dad, and it says 'For dad. I love you so much. You are so kind. You are so loving and I am so happy to be your kid.. You are the best dad I could ask for."
Dean also opened a card from his kids, however, it was not signed by their famous mother.
HAUNTED BY THE PAST
The separation between the spouses comes amid reports the duo are living "separate lives."
A source recently told PEOPLE the are "not in a good place and have been evaluating their relationship."
The insider alleged: "It's been very chilly between them fro a long time. They have been through the wringer before, but they've always gotten out of it."
Dean's past infidelity has apparently been a major player.
The actor admitted to cheating on Tori in 2014 and they spoke openly about it as a couple on their reality show True Tori.
Dean checked himself into rehab after the scandal broke.
The source said: "Tori still has major trust issues. Part of their relationship was never fully repaired after he was unfaithful.
"They've been living separate lives. They will still have family meals and occasional outings, but it's for the kids."
Amid the drama, Tori is said to be looking out for herself and "is determined to come out of whatever happens on top."
The insider added: "She's working really hard and has her hands in a lot of things."
A second source said that this split isn't new, telling PEOPLE things have "been bad for a really long time, over a year for sure."
According to the insider: "Tori doesn't want to break up the family."
"She thinks the kids need their dad. These are their fundamental years and they've fought to stay together for the kids," the source said.
They added: "Dean has a really, really good bond with the kids.
"He's been a stabilizing force for them."
The insider added that trust is a major struggle for Tori and Dean, saying: "Tori still has major trust issues with Dean.
"And he's like, 'We moved on from that.' It's complicated and a very toxic and rocky situation."
A third source said Tori is "keeping to herself more as the situation with Dean continues to be so up in the air."
Speaking on Dean's absence from the family's holiday card, the insider said: "It's true he has been in Canada filming.
"But [for Tori] being alone with five kids and expected to handle all the day-to-day responsibilities that come along with that really took a big toll on their relationship."
