The relationship between Shannen Doherty and Kurt Iswarienko has ended. After 11 years of marriage, the 52-year-old Charmed alum filed for divorce from Iswarienko on Friday.
“Divorce is the last thing Shannen wanted,” Doherty’s representative Leslie Sloane tells PEOPLE. “Unfortunately, she saw no other way out,” the author writes. Sloane further claims that an agent working for Iswarienko was “intimately involved” in the couple’s split.
PEOPLE’s request for comment from Iswarienko and his agency went unanswered for some time. TMZ (the first to announce the news) got the divorce papers, which state that the pair had split in January. Doherty is seeking the court to deny spousal support to her photographer husband after the two got divorced. They have no children together.
Doherty posted a vague remark on Instagram a few hours before the file was made public. It stated, in part, “The only people who deserve to be in your life are the ones who treat you with love, kindness, and total respect,” and was also posted to her Instagram Story.
In October 2011, Doherty and Iswarienko exchanged wedding vows. The actress has been married twice before, first to Ashley Hamilton in 1993 and again to Rick Salomon in 2002 and 2003.
Doherty told PEOPLE a year before her wedding to Iswarienko that this would be her third and final marriage. She had previously stated, “Marriage to me is such a gigantic commitment that I’d never go into lightly again.”
I’m wiser for my mistakes now. A month prior to the divorce announcement, Doherty informed fans she was “feeling great” at a Charmed panel with Rose McGowan, Holly Marie Combs, Brian Krause, Dorian Gregory, and Drew Fuller at 90s Con in Hartford, Connecticut, chaired by PEOPLE’s Breanne L. Heldman.
The actress has been undergoing therapy for stage 4 breast cancer for several years. In 2015, she received her initial breast cancer diagnosis. She went into remission two years later, but by 2020 she was forced to admit that her stage 4 cancer had returned.
Since declaring in 2020 that the disease had returned the year before, Doherty has made it a point to chronicle the ups and downs of her cancer treatments. Doherty has stated that she has “a responsibility” to dispel myths about the disease.

She told reporters during a virtual panel for her Lifetime movie List of a Lifetime, “I feel like I have a responsibility in my more public life, which I separate from my acting life… to talk about cancer and perhaps educate people more and let people know that people with stage 4 are very much alive and very active.”
“My husband says you would never know that I have cancer,” Doherty continued. I rarely find cause for complaint. I tend to avoid discussing it. This has become routine in our lives.
