Kaley Cuoco Asked to Pay Spousal Support to Husband of 21 Months Ryan Sweeting!
Kaley Cuoco took his last name and even tattooed their wedding date in Roman numerals on her back but it seems like estranged husband Ryan Sweeting wants to stick around for a little bit longer. The tennis player who married “The Big Bang Theory” star on December 31st, 2013, is now asking for spousal support from Cuoco, appearing to be the bigger breadwinner as her show is in its ninth season and in reruns. Another big issue aside from spousal support is when the couple actually separated. Cuoco claims the date was September 3rd while Sweeting is citing the date as September 15th. Though they blamed “irreconcilable differences” for their split, some have said that it was Ryan’s abuse of substances that caused the split while others have questioned if Cuoco’s ex Johnny Galecki may have played a part.
To set the record straight, both Kaley and Johnny took to their Instagram pages to deny that there was anything going on between the exes and co-stars, captioning a photo of the two: “So sorry to disappoint, but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here. Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds- Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!” Wasn’t this exactly what Kaley and Ryan attempted to do when they were trying to combat initial divorce rumors? Fortunately, when it comes to money, Cuoco and Sweeting had signed a pre-nup and though the groom is asking his former bride to pay his legal fees, the pre-nup states that fees shall be split, according to E!.
When the divorce was announced, the actress’ rep had this to say: “Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage. They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter.” We are still in the dark as to who is entitled to spousal support as it seems like both sides may want it but it can be “terminable.” We will just have to wait and see how this plays out but because they were married for such a short period of time, I think that they should just be able to walk away with what they came in to the marriage with. And if anything negative happened during the marriage, then maybe the pre-nup can be looked over again. All the best to the both of them!
