Details of the divorce process of Kaley Cuoco, 35, who gave life to Penny, one of the stars of the series “The Big Bang Theory” (2007-2019), surfaced. According to the document, the actress asks the court to deny financial support to both the artist’s ex-husband, Karl Cook, 35, and herself.
According to documents obtained by The Blast portal, the request is based on a prenuptial agreement signed by both at the time of the wedding, in 2018. The process also informs that the date of separation will still be declared by one of the parties.
After Cuoco officially filed for divorce, the California Superior Court in Los Angeles ordered Cook and her to share their financial information about all current income and expenses, as well as property assets (owned both separately and jointly) and debts within 60 days.
According to US Weekly, the document likely protects the actress’ net worth estimated at $100 million (corresponding to $521 million). She, who started working as a child, earned $1 million (equivalent to $5,215 million) per episode in the last two seasons of “The Big Bang Theory.”
Celebrity Net Worth, a site that calculates the wealth of celebrities, estimates that she has earned US$ 150 million during the 12 seasons of the series (corresponding to R$ 782 million).
It is assumed that Cook, a gifted knight, also has an impressive bank account to protect. In addition to winning cash prizes at competitions, he is the son of billionaire Scott Cook, 69, founder of software company Intuit, whose fortune is valued at $4.2 billion (equivalent to $21,903 billion), according to Forbes.
Cuoco and Cook announced their separation on September 3 in a joint and exclusive statement sent to People magazine. The couple said that despite their deep love and respect for each other, they realized that current paths led in opposite directions, without anger or animosity.
“We both share a lot of our journey publicly, so while we preferred to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be honest in our truth together,” the note began. another and we ask that you do the same, understanding that we will not share any additional details or comment further,” they concluded.
They started dating in 2016 and got engaged in November of the following year. Passionate about horses, they were married in June 2018 in a ceremony held at a stable in California, attended by family and friends.
Last year, the couple celebrated their three-year marriage by posting messages on their Instagram pages. Cuoco remembered the day they met and said that she was impressed that they had been together for so long. “I love you so much, you have no idea…happy birthday,” he wrote at the time.
