Tori Spelling asked for a FaceTuning graduation photo of her 14-year-old daughter for Instagram

Proud mum Tori Spelling came under heavy criticism on Thursday as Instagram users called her out for heavily editing a photo of her 14-year-old daughter Stella that she shared in honor of college teenage girl graduation.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star opened up about her daughter in the caption, describing her “pride” at how Stella overcame a series of struggles – including “bullying, severe anxiety and teachers and who didn’t believe” she could graduate – in order to finish college.

“My daughter is graduating from college today,” Tori wrote, adding that the moment was “bittersweet.”

“So proud of how hard she fought to graduate amid bullying, COVID, adversity, migraines, severe anxiety, and sadly, teachers and counselors who didn’t think she was. ‘she could do anything in time to graduate…she proved them all wrong!’ the 49-year-old continued.

“So beyond proud, but I still look up at this stadium and see my tiny little buggy running around.” You have such dynamism and such a spirit of benevolence! You can do absolutely anything you want to do! I love you with all my heart and soul bff.’

Despite the heartwarming caption, commenters were quick to slam the mother-of-five for sharing what appears to be a very photoshopped image of Stella posing in her graduation gown.

Tori and her husband, Dean McDermott, shared photos of the teenager to celebrate the milestone – Stella’s father opting to share a series of much more natural-looking photos of his daughter, which drew even more attention. Pay attention to the edit of Tori’s version, which appears to have been edited to add digital makeup.

Tori, 49, and her husband Dean McDermott, 55, shared images of their daughter to mark her graduation – Stella’s father opting to share a much more natural shot, which drew more attention to the Tori’s version changes.

Followers were quick to point out that Tori’s image of her daughter appeared to have been altered and noted that it was noticeably different from the images shared by Dean, 55.

“This is nothing like Stella,” one follower wrote in the comments to Tori’s Instagram post.

Side-by-side comparisons of photos of Tori and Dean indicate that the image the actress posted has undergone a number of changes.

In Tori’s snap, Stella’s cornsilk hair was lightened to a platinum blonde hue and slicked back, her complexion appeared to have been blurred and contoured, and she was seen sporting heavy eye makeup, with eyeshadow false eyelashes, none of which were visible in the photos shared by her father.

It seems likely that her star mother 90210 used the ultra-popular FaceTune2 app to make the adjustments. FaceTune and FaceTune2 are photo editing apps used worldwide by celebrities and influencers and FaceTune2 in particular offers a digital makeup setting.

In contrast, in the photo Dean posted of Stella, her hair is styled in a natural bang, she models very simple and understated makeup.

Photos of Tori and Dean show the graduate sporting a blue graduation gown and floral lei, while holding a bouquet of flowers.

“This looks nothing like Stella,” one follower wrote in the comments to Tori’s Instagram post, which shows the future high schooler with extra makeup, highlighted hair, bigger lips and a blurry complexion.

Tori, 49, and Dean, 55, are parents to five children: sons Liam, 15, Finn, nine, and Beau, five, and daughters Stella, 14, and Hattie, 10.

Stella’s graduation comes as Tori and Dean take a break from their 16-year marriage.

After months of rumors that the actors’ romance was on the rocks, a source told Us Weekly the couple were “going through a trial separation.”

Tori and Dean have been together since 2006 and share five children together, McDermott also shares son Jack, 23, with ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.

The actress’ friends are worried because they haven’t heard from her anymore, according to the source. Friends tried to contact Tori but never heard back.

“She doesn’t do social things anymore. She seems to isolate herself. She’s been so MIA that they’re worried something’s going to happen – if she’s in money trouble again or if she’s depressed,’ the source said.

The insider also claimed that Tori and her friends aren’t getting together like they once did.

Meanwhile, Tori celebrated her 49th birthday in May in West Hollywood.

Tori wore her blonde tresses loose around her with smoky eye makeup and glossy pink lips.

Her husband Dean was not part of her group for the first birthday celebrations.

The duo were pictured together in late November 2021 for the first time since news of their impending divorce was announced; the duo were seen taking their children out for dinner.

At the end of November, Tori stoked the rumor mill even further when she shared her family vacation card – featuring herself and their five children with Dean McDermott not pictured.

The photo came five months after the couple sparked split rumors after they were seen without wedding rings, according to US Weekly.

Shortly after, Tori revealed during an appearance on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live that they did not sleep in the same bed.
