Shannen Doherty is still displaced from her home after the California wildfires ripped through Malibu last year, and she does not know when she’ll be able to return.
The former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star filed documents in her ongoing legal battle against her insurance company State Farm, who claimed had refused to pay up on her claims relating to the Woolsey wildfire.
In the newly filed documents, Doherty explains she was forced to evacuate her home, “and the premises have remained uninhabitable since November 2018, during which time Plaintiff has been living in temporary housing.”
However, State Farm revealed that they have paid out over $350,000 to Doherty, in hopes of covering damage, temporary housing and furniture rental. State Farm says they are currently paying $35,000 per month for the actress to live in temporary housing.
The insurance company says Doherty has continued to submit additional expenses, and they now plan to depose Doherty, and her mother Rosa, in the near future regarding all the damage.
Earlier this year, Doherty sued and claimed, “State Farm will take advantage of the vulnerability and distress of its policy holders when they find themselves in the very situations they paid thousands of dollars in premiums to insure against.”
The actress claimed State Farm only offered two weeks of coverage for a temporary residence while the house was cleaned up, which Doherty believed was ridiculous.
She also claimed the entire ordeal was “incredibly distressing,” especially while she undergoes “invasive cancer treatment, including chemo and radiation therapy.”
The star was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and has been very open about her treatment.
State Farm has denied all allegations of wrongdoing and said they were justified in denying some of Doherty’s claims.
