Shannen Doherty: My Ex-Husband Can’t Wait for Me to Die!

As she has tragically made clear for multiple years now, Shannen Doherty is going through a very hard time.

The actress was diagnosed in 2020 with stage 4 cancer.

And while the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has been candid about her struggles with this illness, she’s opening up a bit more in depth right now about something else personal and painful:

Her divorce from Kurt Iswarienko.

In court documents obtained this week by multiple celebrity gossip outlets, Doherty claims she has NOT been granted access to the financial records regarding Iswarienko’s archive of photography work… ultimately slowing down the process of her receiving spousal support.

She has a theory behind why, too.

“It is simply not right that Kurt be permitted to prolong our divorce in hopes that I die before he is required to pay me while he continues to live his life and shirk his responsibilities to his dying wife of more than 11 years,” Doherty states in the legal papers.

The 53-year-old is asking for $15,434 a month from her former spouse.

She writes residuals from her role on the show Charmed are declining, while she’s also losing her SAG health insurance because she’s been unable to act amid her health struggles.

An attorney for Iswarienko counters Doherty’s allegations, saying her client offered his ex a settlement in October 2023, but Doherty turned it down.

The star, meanwhile, is also accusing Iswarienko of living an extravagant lifestyle while she has no access to funds, their airplane or their marital vacation home in the state of Texas.

“Kurt has been utilizing the airplane, spending thousands of dollars at medical spas, jewelry stores, Gucci, and on flights… while simultaneously claiming he has insufficient funds with which to support me,” the filing reads.

Doherty filed for divorce from Kurt in April 2023 after 11 years of marriage.

At the time, her rep explained to E! News that the decision was born out of necessity, saying:

“Divorce is the last thing Shannen wanted. Unfortunately, she felt she was left with no other option.”

The actress later accused her ex-husband of having an affair.

This past November, Doherty said her cancer had spread, telling People Magazine at the time:

“I don’t want to die.

“I’m not done with living. I’m not done with loving. I’m not done with creating. I’m not done with hopefully changing things for the better,” she added.

“I’m just not – I’m not done.”
