The husband of “Beverly Hills 90210” alum Shannen Doherty has filed a lawsuit against her former manager and the firm he worked for, claiming that Doherty’s breast cancer has damaged their love life.
In his lawsuit, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Kurt Iswarienko claims that Steven D. Blatt and Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson, which provided services to both Doherty and Iswarienko, failed to pay Doherty’s medical-insurance premiums, causing her policy to lapse in 2014.
When Doherty regained insurance the following year, the lawsuit says, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which had spread in 2014 — when she had no insurance.
The breast cancer, the complaint maintains, led to a lengthy treatment process including a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation for the actress.
The illness also caused difficulty for Iswarienko, the suit maintains, “in the form of severe emotional distress, lost wages due to the need to care for his wife and lost companionship and services, including, for example, love, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society and moral support from his wife.”
The lawsuit also contains a host of other allegations, including that a property of Iswarienko’s was foreclosed on because loan payments weren’t made.
TheWrap has reached out to Tanner Mainstain for comment.
Doherty filed a lawsuit making similar allegations about her medical insurance against Blatt and Mainstain last year, settling the suit this August.
Alleging breach of contract, fraud and other counts, the suit seeks unspecified damages.
