Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook said they are getting divorced after three years of marriage. The two made the announcement in a joint statement on Friday, according to US media reports.
Cuoco, who is famous for her role in ‘The Big Bang Theory‘, shared what has been described as an unusual relationship with Cook, who is 30 years old. For a major chunk of their marriage, the couple lived separately and said that the living arrangement worked well for them.
Last year in April, the couple announced that they were moving into a new home that they had built together.
“Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions”, Mellisa Kates said on behalf of Cuoco and Cook said.
“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”, according to reports from USA Today.
Cuoco previously said in an interview that her marriage with Cook is her second one. The 34-year-old said that she was married to tennis star Ryan Sweeting and added that she was not certain about getting married again.
Friday’s statement by the couple said, “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”, according to reports from USA Today.
In a statement in 2019, Cuoco said that she had the “best relationship with Karl”. The statement added, “But we have separate lives and then our lives come together and he’s so supportive of me. He lets me be me, and I let him be him”, USA Today reported.
