Shannen Doherty from Beverly Hills 90210 Blames Breast Cancer Diagnosis on Business Manager
Shannen Doherty of Beverly Hills 90210 fame has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is blaming her business manager for finding the severity of the diagnosis.
According to Doherty, her business manager is responsible for the severity of her breast cancer because he never paid an invoice for her medical insurance in 2014 and the insurance was cancelled. She apparently couldn’t re-enroll for new insurance until 2015 and at that point, the breast cancer had already progressed.
As a result, Shannen has filed a lawsuit, according to TMZ, in which she claims her business managers took 5% of her earnings in return for managing her finances, including payment of her medical insurance to SAG.
In March 2015, after getting her insurance back, she went to a doctor and discovered she had “invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node.” She says doctors told her the cancer spread during 2014, when she was uninsured, and she blames her business manager.
The only problem with Shannen’s claims is the timing – if her business manager and she parted ways in 2014, does that really make him responsible? Or is she just looking for someone to blame??
As a result of the progression of the disease, Shannon claims she will need a mastectomy and chemotherapy — that could have been avoided if the cancer had been caught earlier.
What do you think about Doherty’s claims??
It hasn’t been a good day for the former stars of Beverly Hills 90210, as Brian Austin Green and his wife of five years, Megan Fox have separated and news of the split just hit the papers today.
Hopefully, all will turn out well and Shannon will be okay and Green and Fox will reconcile?
