Spelling wrote a lengthy tribute to Masterson on her Instagram account.
“I struggled with this post today. But unfortunately it’s real. Our friend Scout passed away yesterday. This incredibly kind human being who was the best of father, husband, son, dog dad, friend and guncle was taken far too soon. His children Simone and Boz were his world. He loved his husband Bill with all his heart. His mother, Grandma J, whom we all call Nana, was a goddess in his world. He had so many friends who cared about him because he made time for them all and they all knew the world was a better place with him. No matter what he was going through healthwise and personally, he always made others feel loved and made them laugh and smile,” she wrote in part.
