The split between actor Kaley Cuoco and equestrian Karl Cook is nearly final, with the high-profile couple close to settling their amicable divorce.
Cook and Cuoco married on June 30, 2018 and announced their separation on September 3, 2021. In a joint public statement, they shared that “despite a deep love and respect for one another…our current paths have taken us in opposite directions.” The former couple feels no animosity toward one another and plans to remain friendly.
Settlement on the horizon
The “Flight Attendant” actor is worth approximately 100 million dollars of her own, and Cook is the son of billionaire Intuit founder, Scott Cook. The couple entered into their marriage with a prenuptial agreement that ensures each party will keep what they brought into the relationship. They are to sell any property they purchased together. Cook has disclosed all financial documents to Cuoco’s legal team, including income, expenses and joint assets. Because each party is independently wealthy, spousal support is not likely to be an issue during settlement negotiations.
Exes to determine canine and equine custody
The former couple has no children, but they do own several pets together, including rescue dogs and eventing horses. The custody of pets can get complicated, especially if both parties sign paperwork during the purchase or adoption process. However, if Cuoco and Cook’s split is as amicable as it seems, they should be able to work out animal custody and visitation through settlement negotiations or mediation.
Even though Cook and Cuoco expected a long and happy life together, they prepared for their possible divorce smartly, which will save the exes financial and emotional turmoil as they move forward separately.
