Kaley Cuoco's estranged husband Ryan Sweeting seeking spousal support in divorce
Actress Kaley Cuoco’s estranged husband Ryan Sweeting is allegedly requesting spousal support despite signing a prenuptial agreement before their wedding.
The Big Bang Theory star revealed she was to divorce the professional tennis player last month after less than two years of marriage. The 29-year-old filed her legal papers soon after the announcement and these documents revealed the couple had signed a prenuptial agreement. But on Monday Ryan submitted his own papers requesting spousal support from Kaley, according to ET Online.
While Kaley has an estimated net worth of approximately $45 million, Ryan, 28, reportedly amassed a fortune which totals to $2 million.
News the estranged couple had a prenup led many to believe they would secure a quick divorce. But now that Ryan is seeking financial support it could lead to a longer process with the courts.
Kaley cited “irreconcilable differences” in her original papers after rumours had circulated for months that their marriage was under strain.
However Ryan’s paperwork cites a different date of separation to his former spouse. While Kaley gave September 3, the sportsman put September 25 as the day they decided to dissolve their marriage, which was the same day their separation was announced to the press.
The former couple had tied the knot on New Year’s Eve 2013 after a whirlwind romance.
While Kaley has yet to speak out in further detail of what went wrong in her marriage she did take to social media last week (ends16Oct15) to deny reports that she was having a fling with her Big Bang co-star and former boyfriend Johnny Galecki.
Alongside a snap of herself and Johnny pumping fists while sitting on a bench, Kaley wrote on Instagram: “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!!!"
