Kaley Cuoco Asks to Keep Her Personal Earnings amid Divorce from Karl Cook
“The Big Bang Theory” alum Kaley Cuoco and her estranged husband Karl Cook have ended their marriage. Additionally, Cuoco has a personal request before cutting ties officially.
Kaley Cuoco’s divorce filing obtained by People states the actress has requested the court to terminate its ability to award spousal support to either herself or Karl Cook.
Cuoco filed the documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, September 3, the same day she and Cook announced their breakup.
The documentation requests the “Hop” star and the equestrian to separate their property, with Cuoco, 35, keeping "miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects," including her "earnings and accumulations" from before and during marriage and from after the date of separation.
The court papers also noted additional separate property assets and obligations that the pair must adhere to as mandated by their Prenuptial Agreement.
In the joint agreement, "The Wedding Ringer" star also asks that she and 30-year-old Cook be responsible for their own attorney fees.
The producer cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce but did not specify when exactly she filed for their separation.
Cook and Cuoco are parting ways after three years of marriage, which is a decision that is supposedly sudden, a source close to the estranged couple shared.
The duo announced their split in a joint statement to People on September 3 and shared despite their love and respect for each other, they are going in opposite directions, adding their separation is amicable with no anger nor animosity.
A day after their announcement, an insider told the outlet that they had not seen their divorce coming. The source shared Cuoco seemed happy with Cook at the beginning of the summer.
The insider revealed the now-estranged couple was affectionate and seemed great; hence, their separation is rather sudden and shocking.
