Doherty is appealing for spousal assistance but does not want her estranged photographer spouse to receive it. There are no children between the couple.

Doherty sent a mysterious statement on Instagram a few hours before word of the filing spread. The statement, which was also published on her Instagram Story, stated that the only people who deserve to be in your life are those that treat you with love, kindness, and complete respect.

In October 2011, Doherty and Iswarienko became husband and wife.

Previously, the actress was wed to Rick Salomon from 2002 to 2003 and to Ashley Hamilton from 1993 to 1994.

Doherty admitted to PEOPLE that she was considering her third marriage seriously a year prior to her nuptials with Iswarienko. She added at the time, “Marriage to me is such a tremendous responsibility that it’s not something I’d ever get into lightly anymore. “I’ve had my lesson,” you say.
