File this under celebrity divorce announcements we were definitely not expecting…
Kaley Cuoco has just filed for divorce from Karl Cook, after just three years of marriage. And we don’t know how to process this truly shocking and heartbreaking news.
According to reports, the 35-year-old Flight Attendant star filed for divorce at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday – and then released a joint statement with Karl Cook to let the world’s media know very shortly after.
Kaley and Karl got married in June 2018 after a six-month engagement. She previously married professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting in December 2013, but they went their separate ways just 21 months later.
So what happened between the former Big Bang Theory star and the 30-year-old professional equestrian?
If we are to believe their joint statement, nothing bad actually happened, they just simply found themselves on different paths in life. There don’t seem to be any hard feelings, and as far as we know, there don’t seem to be any third parties involved either…
“Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions,” their statement began.
“We have both shared so much of our journey publicly so while we would prefer to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be forthcoming in our truth together.
“There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary.
“We have made this decision together through an immense amount of respect and consideration for one another and request that you do the same in understanding that we will not be sharing any additional details or commenting further.”
We still can’t believe it! We aren’t alone in our shock, as since Kaley and Karl’s announcement, several friends of the couple have confessed that they didn’t see the split coming either…
“In the beginning of the summer, Kaley seemed very happy with Karl. They were affectionate and seemed great,” a source reportedly told People.
“The split seems very sudden. It’s pretty shocking,” the source added.
We wish them all the best as they go through this long and painful process. And if someone else wants to spill the tea and reveal the real reasons for their separation, we would be eternally grateful…
