After just two years of marriage, it seems Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are calling it quits.
In a statement released to People, the couple said:
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage, They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter.
The Big Bang Theory star and her Tennis player husband got married on New Years Eve 2013 in a spectacular fire-and-ice-themed wedding which saw the actress change her last name to Cuoco-Sweeting.
Earlier this year, the couple rebuffed claims that their marriage was in trouble with Cuoco releasing this statement on Instagram:
I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet – this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant 'conversation' regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make.
Around July rumors of divorce reared their head again, this time it seems they were sadly on the money.
The news comes hot on the heels of the Season 9 premiere of Cuoco's show The Big Bang Theory which featured the long-awaited marriage of Cuoco's character Penny to series protagonist Leonard played by Johnny Galecki.
It's always sad when love dies and a couple decides to spend time apart, the tragedy is only highlighted when said couple spends so much time in the public eye.
I wish Kaley and Ryan an easy and smooth journey to finding happiness again. Break-ups suck.
