0115-tori-spelling-tmzTori Spelling's deep in the hole with American Express, so much so ... it's filed a lawsuit to get back the dough.

AMEX says Tori's statement balance was $37,981.97 ... since last summer, and she's failed to make a single payment since then.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, she attempted to make a payment on June 26 last year ... in the amount of $1,070, but it bounced.

AMEX is demanding immediate payment of the full balance, which includes interest.

It's not all bad news -- according to a statement, Tori earned 60 SPG Starpoints.

We've reached out to her reps, but no word back yet.
