Currently Booming: Ryan Sweeting Has Asked Court for Spousal Support in Divorce from Kaley Cuoco

I told you a few weeks ago that this was going to happen. When Kaley Cuoco confirmed her split from Ryan Sweeting last month there was speculation that he would be looking for a financial payday and sure enough, it has happened. Sweeting finally filed his own documents in response to Cuoco's petitioning for divorce and in that filing he has indeed requested spousal support.

According to a report by E! News, "Ryan Sweeting has responded to Kaley Cuoco’s divorce filing. E! News obtained the court documents filed by the tennis player on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles Superior Court, and there were some notable points found in the legal document. Like Cuoco’s original filing on Sept 25, Ryan cites ever-so-popular “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. However, Sweeting states Sept. 25 (the day of Kaley’s filing) as the date of separation, as opposed to Sept. 3, which was what Cuoco stated in her filing.

The documents also show that the actress’ ex is asking for spousal support and requesting to terminate the court’s ability to award support to Kaley. In her papers, Kaley stated spousal support was payable and terminable as set forth from the couple’s prenuptial agreement, which they signed on Nov. 20, 2013. Ryan is also asking Kaley to pay for his attorney’s fees, something The Big Bang Theory star listed would be paid by both parties, per their prenup."

Supposedly, shortly before their New Year's Eve 2013 wedding Cuoco did have Sweeting sign a prenup but sources have also indicated that the tennis player is also looking for a loophole in that as well. Cuoco is worth millions thanks to her long running role on The Big Bang Theory and it sounds like Sweeting is pretty determined to at least try and get a chunk of it for himself.

It's not too surprising that this marriage seems to be ending in a mess. If anything, the fact that these two managed to make it work for nearly three years is what's really shocking!
