"I also take some responsibility for the demise of our marriage — actually that’s not true. Let me rephrase that, I do not take responsibility for the demise of our marriage, I take responsibility for some of the issues in our marriage," Doherty, 52, clarified of filing for divorce in April. "I take responsibility not only because of how I was but because of how cancer impacted my marriage and how it impacted him the second time around."

Yes I made the decision to file for divorce, but I have a lot of memories with this person," the "Let's Be Clear" podcast host explained of when her cancer returned in 2019 after going into remission in 2017.
