Shannen Doherty stepped out for a girls’ night out on Monday, after news broke that she had settled the health insurance lawsuit she filed against her former management firm.
The “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum visited a beachside restaurant with friends, according to The Mirror, which also published some photos of the actress dressed in white jumper with a scarf covering her head.
Doherty, who is battling breast cancer, shared a pic from the night out on her Instagram account. “Love girls night with @annemkortright helping me celebrate,” she captioned the photo with her Puerto Rican model friend Anne Marie Kortright. “[I’m] feeling good enough to eat before Wednesday's chemo. #bff #fightlikeagirl #cancersucks #warrior.”
In August 2015, Doherty filed a $15 million lawsuit against Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson for breach of contract and negligence, claiming that the company allowed her insurance coverage to lapse, which led to her being uninsured for several months. Because she was not insured, she claimed that she was unable to regularly see a doctor and thus her breast cancer metastasized.
Gossip Cop reported Monday afternoon that Doherty had settled the lawsuit, but the amount that she will receive is being kept under wraps.
“The dispute between the parties was resolved to their satisfaction pursuant to a confidential settlement,” Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson said in a statement to the New York Daily News.
Aside from her role as Brenda Walsh on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” Doherty is also known for playing Prue Halliwell on WB’s supernatural series “Charmed.” She was also a series regular on NBC’s drama series “Our House” and western drama series “Little House on the Prairie.” On the film side, Doherty appeared in “Girls Just Want to Have,” “Heathers,” “Almost Dead” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” among many others.
