January 1, Star’s Divorce: Husband Awaits Actress’s Death to Dodge Spousal Support?



Actress Shannen Doherty, known for “90210,” accuses estranged husband, photographer Kurt Iswarienko, of intentionally delaying their divorce. She claims he hopes she will pass away before he has to pay spousal support.

Doherty said, “It simply isn’t right that Kurt can extend our divorce in hopes that I die before he has to pay me while he continues to lead his life and avoid his responsibilities to his dying wife of more than 11 years.”

The 54-year-old actress’s income has decreased due to her battle with stage 4 breast cancer and medical expenses. She alleges Iswarienko maintains an extravagant lifestyle.

“Our assets are not challenging to characterize or divide,” Doherty wrote in court documents. “Our divorce should not be complicated. It is abundantly clear to me that Kurt is intentionally delaying the settlement in hopes that I will not survive the divorce proceedings.”

Doherty requests $15,343 per month in spousal support, highlighting their earnings disparity. “Kurt’s average annual earnings for the last three years of marriage was $672,916,” she stated. “My average annual earnings for the last three years of marriage was $259,708.”

She added, “Despite Kurt’s income being substantially more than mine, he has not made any temporary spousal support payments and has not contributed to my attorneys’ or accounting fees and costs since the divorce action was filed.”

The couple married in 2011, and Doherty filed for divorce in April 2023. She underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor in January 2023 after discovering her husband’s alleged infidelity.

“I went into that surgery early in the morning and I went in after I found out that my marriage was essentially over, that my husband had been carrying on an affair for two years,” she shared. “To not go in that surgery, even though he wanted to go, I couldn’t go into that surgery with him there. I felt so betrayed.”

Doherty claims Iswarienko is engaged in a “sadistic push and pull game,” withholding income information. She alleges he spends thousands on medical spas, jewelry, Gucci, and flights for his agent, with whom she believes he is in a relationship.
