Shannen Doherty's husband: 'Cancer diagnosis ruined our sex life'

The actress settled her legal dispute in August (16).

Shannen Doherty's husband Kurt Iswarienko has filed suit against the actress' former business managers because her breast cancer diagnosis destroyed their sex life.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress had to open up about her health crisis in a $15 million (£11.8 million) legal spat last year (15), when she sued representatives at Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson for allegedly letting her health insurance policy lapse, forcing her to wait to see a doctor about a lump in her breast.

The two parties reportedly settled the dispute in August (16), but now Shannen's husband has followed her lead and lodged his own papers in court over the same issue.

In his lawsuit, obtained by TMZ.com, photographer Kurt blames the managers' oversight for ruining his sex life with the 45-year-old actress, whose breast cancer is likely to have been caught earlier had she been able to seek medical help in 2014.

He also goes on to accuse company officials of mismanaging his own funds, causing him to get involved in bad loans in recent years, ruining his credit.

Shannen has been candid about her cancer battle since the news was made public last year (15), and she has been documenting her health crisis on social media, keeping fans updated on her struggle.

She underwent a series of chemotherapy sessions earlier this year (16), and last month (Nov16), she began radiation treatment.

Kurt has remained by his wife's side throughout the health crisis, and although he previously admitted the diagnosis had tested their marriage, he insisted it ultimately brought them closer together.

"It's one of those times you get to test your mettle as a married couple," he said.

The couple has been married since 2011.
