Kaley Cuoco’s marriage to Ryan Sweeting is officially over, but her freedom comes at a hefty price.
According to a report from Us Weekly, the “Big Bang Theory” actress’ divorce settlement agreement was reached on May 6. She and Sweeting, 28, are said to have had a prenuptial agreement in place which protected all income drawn in from the CBS sitcom. She was also allowed to keep their Tarzana, California, mansion and their Santa Barbara, California, beach house. While Cuoco’s “Big Bang Theory” money was protected, she was still ordered to pay her former hubby some serious cash. According to the publication, Sweeting will be paid $165,000. Cuoco will also be asked to hand over nearly $55,000 in legal fees and the $195,000 for his personal trainers.
While her divorce only just became final, Cuoco, 30, wasted no time getting back in the dating game. She is rumored to be in a relationship with professional horse rider Karl Cook. She snapped a photo of him and her over the weekend. In the photo Cook, 26, appears to be taking a little nap after a long day of horseback riding. In her Instagram caption Cuoco joked that her rumored beau is “totally into me.” She later posted a photo of him sharing a smooch with her horse Netty.
This is hardly the first time Cuoco’s shared a photo of her horse or her might-be-boyfriend. Neither she nor Cook has confirmed that they are in a relationship, however, they have appeared in several social media posts together. Nearly two weeks ago the pair posted a smiling photo together taken during a sunny Sunday adventure.
Cuoco and Sweeting announced their split in September 2015. At the time they had been married for nearly 21 months. A rep for the couple asked fans to respect their privacy and did not reveal a cause for their divorce at the time.
