Kaley Cuoco, 30 and Ryan Sweeting, 28 mutually decided to split in September 2016 after almost 21 months of marriage. Since the split Kaley Cuoco has been spending her time hanging out with friends and even adopting a new horse, but many are still confused as to why the former lovebirds, who never shied off from showing their affection for each other on social media, decided to pull apart less than two years after tying the knot.
The divorce petition signed by Big Bang Theory star says that the reason for their split is ‘irreconcilable differences’. It was later revealed that Kaley Cuoco had a prenuptial agreement drawn up before she married Ryan Sweeting, a former tennis player.

On the other hand, Ryan’s friends teased him by saying that it is like a tracking device so she can keep tabs on where he has been. There were certain things that Kaley would not let Ryan spend her hard earned money on. Seeing as how Kaley tracks his spending and where he goes every month, Ryan felt like he had lost his freedom. Ryan was battling an injury and reportedly began abusing the painkillers he was given and alcohol.
