Shannen Doherty's husband is suing for destroyed sex life

SHANNEN Doherty's husband is suing her former manager for destroying their sex life.

The 45-year-old actress - who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015 - settled her lawsuit against Steven Blatt in the summer after accusing him of mismanaging her insurance premiums and allowing her health insurance to lapse, meaning she couldn't see a doctor, leading to a delay in her breast cancer diagnosis.

But now her spouse Kurt Iswarienko - who she married in 2011 - has taken legal moves against Mr. Blatt and his firm and accused them of dampening their bedroom antics and damaging his finances by their actions.

Kurt has reiterated everything Shannen said in her lawsuit but, according to documents obtained by TMZ, has also accused Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson of mismanaging his funds and allowing him to get mixed up in bad loans that tarnished his credit score.

Shannen's diagnosis was made public in August 2015 when she filed her estimated $15 million lawsuit against her former management and accounting firm.

In court documents, the actress accused the company of ignoring an invoice to pay her insurance premium in early 2014.

The 'Charmed' star re-enrolled in the programme shortly before doctors discovered she has "invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node".

Her medical team believe the cancer spread last year and would have been easier to treat if it had been detected earlier, but she failed to get a check-up at the time due to her lack of insurance.

Confirming the news at the time, Shannen vowed to remain positive.

She said: "I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment. I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and my fans who have stood by me."

Shannen started her chemotherapy in July and is almost finished but now has gruelling radiotherapy to go through before doctors can re-evaluate her cancer.
