When you’re going through a breakup, sometimes the best line of defense is to pretend like the guy never existed — and it seems like that’s what Kaley Cuoco’s doing with soon-to-be ex-husband Ryan Sweeting. Her Instagram account is a Ryan-free zone now!
Kaley Cuoco, 29, made sure that she couldn’t be tempted to look back on old, happier times by deleting every single photo of her ex, Ryan Sweeting, 28, from her Instagram. The deletion came just hours before their divorce announcement on September 25. Someone was getting prepped for the bad news to hit!
Kaley did leave pics of fun times with friends and family, and with those precious puppies of hers, plus some of her gorgeous photoshoots! Better to remember the good instead of the painful!
In addition to deleting the photos, Kaley also unfollowed her ex on Instagram, as well as on all her other social media accounts. This way, he can’t pop up unexpectedly and bring up bad feelings. Good for you, Kaley! The Big Bang Theory star also had a girls night out just hours after the announcement, which gave her more emotional support and happiness from her besties and sister, Briana.
Ryan did about the same; this divorce is hitting him hard, too! He took things a step further than Kaley and completely cleared out his Instagram account of all pictures! He unfollowed Kaley, as well everyone else who had been on his Instagram, leaving his account completely blank! To top it all off, he disabled his Facebook account. It looks like not only did Ryan not want to be hurt by seeing pics of his soon-to-be ex-wife, but was also trying to escape what will likely be a huge number of comments from people talking about the split!
The seemingly tight couple announced their divorce plans on September 15, after just 21 months of marriage. Though Kaley’s rep has said that the couple has asked for privacy during this difficult time, the Big Bang Theory star did share just a tiny tidbit about her feelings post-split — and it was on Instagram, interestingly!
“#mood,” she captioned a pic of her beloved dog, Norman, who’s lounging glamorously on a table next to a nice glass of rosé. Kaley, you definitely deserve some puppy snuggles and a glass of wine right now, girl!
HollywoodLifers, do you think it was a good move for Kaley to remove all the pics of Ryan from her Instagram?
