Shannen filed for divorce from Kurt after nearly 12-years of marriage in 2023. Now, she alleged he's intentionally prolonging their divorce proceedings in "hopes" that she passes away from cancer, which she has battled on and off since 2015.

Shannen revealed in November 2023 that her Stage 4 breast cancer had spread to her bones.

"It is simply not right that Kurt be permitted to prolong our divorce in hopes that I die before he is required to pay me while he continues to live his life and shirk his responsibilities to his dying wife of more than 11 years," Shannen stated in court documents, according to PEOPLE.

Kurt's lawyers responded to Shannen's claims and denied that the Pirates of the Caribbean star is attempting to delay the payments.

Kurt's legal team pointed to a settlement deal he offered the actress in October 2023, which they claimed showed his intent to find a resolution in the matter. Shannen did not accept the offer, claiming it "skirted around the issues of his original works created during marriage" as well as "his earning capacity."

"Kurt is not ‘simply wait[ing] for Shannen to die," attorney Katherine Heersema said. "He wants the best for Shannen and he wants both of them to be able to put this case behind them and move forward."

According to Shannen's filing, she's requested $15,434 per month in spousal support, while noting she will be losing her SAG health insurance due to not working and a decrease in her Charmed residuals.

Shannen further accused her ex-husband of leading a lavish lifestyle all while she's had zero access to any funds, their airplane or marital vacation home in Texas.

"Kurt has been utilizing the airplane, spending thousands of dollars at medical spas, jewelry stores, Gucci, and on flights… while simultaneously claiming he has insufficient funds with which to support me," Shannen stated.

Calculations revealed Kurt's average income over the previous three years to be around $672,916 spendable, to which Shannen's lawyers argued leaves “at least” $56,076 per month that her requested spousal support could be deducted from.
