    The ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ actress is accusing her former business managers for endangering her health by failing to pay her Screen Actors Guild insurance premium, delaying medical tests.

    Actress Shannen Doherty reportedly is battling breast cancer.

    The medical crisis came to light Wednesday after the "Beverly Hills, 90210" filed a lawsuit blaming her former business managers for contributing to the severity of her diagnosis, TMZ.com first reported.

    Doherty, 44, is suing management company Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson claiming it caused her to lose her Screen Actors Guild medical insurance in 2014 when it failed to pay her premium, TMZ said.

    The policy reportedly was cancelled, leaving her without coverage for a critical period of her illness, she claims.

    Once the coverage was reinstated, she went to a doctor and discovered in March that she has "invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node," the lawsuit obtained by TMZ says.

    Doherty, who also played Prue Halliwell in the hit WB show "Charmed," claims her doctors told her the cancer spread during 2014, when she was uninsured, the website reported.

    The Los Angeles-based actress reportedly suggests she may be forced to take serious treatment measures - including mastectomy and chemotherapy - that could have been avoided with earlier detection.

    Attempts to reach Doherty and her lawyer were not immediately successful Wednesday.

    "Just know…. I love you all," she wrote in a Twitter post to her 414,000 followers late Tuesday.

    At least she showed them off in Playboy before she lost them. I hate those artsy fartsy black and white pics though.

    That sucks.

    She can't blame others for her lack of coverage. If you have $$$, you have coverage quickly.

    Since the cancer has metasticized, she's in some trouble.

    Edit: I see now that she hasn't worked much in the last few years. What a shitty thing, to be uber-famous and then to be without work.

    I'd like to give them a squeeze before they get lopped off.

    How is she not married to a really rich guy? Her current husband had a career in lighting movie sets or TV shows.

    Aren't famous actresses supposed to be major "gets" for guys who are rich through normal means?

    Spread to one lymph node is probably stage 2 which is probably still curable (I am no expert but I have an acquaintance going through cancer with a similar diagnosis).

    I hope she is OK. But it's a bit of a stretch to suggest she didn't know she was without health insurance. It's each person's responsibility to make sure that stuff is all set. Trust but verify - that goes for your doctor, your accountant, your business manager, your insurance agent, your lawyer, your realtor and every other important service you have.

    I'm guessing that money got tight, and who thinks you're going to have problems like this at her age?

    My aunt got cancer at age 51 and was gone eight months later. I really miss her; we were buddies.

    I have a lot of less-than-stellar relatives, but she always knew the right thing for me to do. If only I could've bottled her common sense.

    Exactly at some point take ownership of your own life. If she has an email or message that's one thing if it's he said she said that's another. I feel bad for her but I bet the guy said funds are low if we don't pay the 2k monthly health insurance premium for a few months we are good, she said fine taking a calculated chance
    That's my hunch at the end of the day blaming your manager for your own life always seems lame to me

    She could have done MILF porn. I'm sure there's many that would like to see her say, "9021-OH!" as she was getting butt slammed. :evil:

    It's a sad day for those kids at West Beverly. First David Silver's divorce and now Brenda has the cancers. :(

    Never liked her, but hope she's okay. No one deserves that. Well, except all of the Kardashians.

    The odd thing is that I know that and somehow it makes me feel even worse for her. I'm not a fan or hers, and I've never lusted after her, but since I have that gift of blowing myself up, I guess I can relate.
