A hyperromantic marriage proposal, a wedding in style, three years of marriage … and a divorce. The perfection that actress Kaley Cuoco and jockey Karl Cook showed on their social networks and in their photos together has vanished with the announcement of their separation, which took place this weekend. It was through a statement that the actress – known especially for her role as Penny in the hit series The Big Bang Theory, which aired between 2007 and 2019, and now the protagonist of The Flight Attendant– and the rider have explained that their relationship has ended after almost six years together and three of marriage.
“Despite having a deep love and respect for each other, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions,” they explained in the statement sent exclusively to the magazine. People. “We have both shared our journey publicly, so although we preferred to keep this aspect as part of our private lives, we wanted to be transparent about our truth together. There is no anger or animosity, quite the opposite ”. The couple ends up stating that they have made the decision “together” and having “enormous respect and consideration for each other.” “We ask you to do the same and understand that we are not going to share more details or talk about anything else,” they have settled.
Cook proposed to Cuoco in late November 2017, just as she turned 32. It was a request that they enthusiastically shared on their social networks, some images in which she was excited, tearful and trembling. Still crying. Every part of tonight has been perfect, as are you. I love you forever! ”, She said in a post on your Instagram profile, where then it had 3.5 million followers (now it accumulates almost seven). “Honey, all I want is to be a balloon bouncing, swaying and flowing through life together. You are my everything ”, he told her after sharing a dance together.
The wedding came the following year, in July 2018. They did it in a horse stable near San Diego, California, a place that demonstrated one of her great passions, since she is a great lover of equines and he is a rider professional. The ceremony was officiated by the actress’s sister, who wore a lace dress with a matching cape signed by Reem Acra.
This is the second marriage and, therefore, the second divorce for Cuoco, who in 2016 separated from tennis player Ryan Sweeting after 21 months of marriage. In that union, he signed a prenuptial agreement, something that allowed him to maintain his assets, which in that 2016 was estimated at about 67 million euros. From that separation, Sweeting only took about 165,000 euros, which she paid. After that first divorce, Cuoco announced that a tattoo in which the wedding date had been engraved had been erased. Thank you for helping me correct my mistakes. Note to self: do not mark your body with future wedding dates, ”he wrote on his Instagram profile.
In these years, Cuoco’s fortune has been increasing, because for several years she has positioned herself as one of the highest paid actresses on American television, only surpassed on certain occasions by Sofia Vergara, one of the protagonists of the series. Modern Family. In 2015, 2017 and 2018, for example, he tied with Vergara in the ranking, each earning around 22 million euros.
At the moment, there is no reference to this divorce in his photographs. Her last photograph with him dates back to July 5, when they shared the arrival of a dog, a nine-year-old English Mastiff named Larry, into their family. If the couple did sign a prenuptial agreement, Larry was not in it. It will be necessary to see if they effectively maintain the silence they promise or if they reveal more details of their future agreement on their social networks or in some juicy exclusive.
