Kaley Cuoco ‘files divorce papers’

Kaley Cuoco has reportedly filed divorce papers just days after announcing she and Ryan Sweeting have called it quits on their marriage.

A representative for The Big Bang Theory actress confirmed on Friday 25 September (15) she and the professional tennis player were separating.

And according to Us Weekly magazine, Kaley has taken the next step by filing legal documents in divorce court on Monday 28 September (15). The outlet reports she has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason why the pair split.

The documents also allegedly lists their official date of separation as September 3.

It seems their marital assets are going to be allocated with ease due to their pre-existing prenuptial agreement.

A month before the former couple exchanged vows on 31 December (13) they both signed a prenup that outlines spousal support and joint property division very clearly.

Also in her divorce papers it’s claimed the actress, who adopted Ryan’s surname Sweeting after they married, has asked to have her maiden name of Kaley Christine Cuoco restored to her.

During interviews in the months leading up to their breakup, Kaley, 29, spoke highly of her union with Ryan. However, just before the split announcement there appeared to be trouble in paradise as she deleted nearly every trace of Ryan, 28, from her Instagram account.

The couple battled marriage trouble rumours in the spring (15) and Kaley took to social media to deny reports she and her husband were experiencing problems.

"I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet – this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant 'conversation' regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make," she wrote on her Instagram page in April.

They got engaged after just three months of dating.
