Well, that didn’t take long! Just one week after filing divorce documents, Kaley Cuoco is reportedly back to being just Kaley Cuoco. The 29-year-old debuted the return to her maiden name at a Longines Masters equestrian event in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 2. Kaley revealed the big news in an Instagram photo of her personalized place setting, which simply read, “Kaley Cuoco.” The Big Bang Theory star is also now referred to as such on the show’s opening credits, though she previously went by Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting during her 21-month marriage.

Kaley was reportedly the one to file the legal documents, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of the divorce. “It was a long time coming,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She tried to make it work, but felt like she was the only one making an effort.” Sadly, their ongoing martial issues were only made worse by Ryan’s alleged addiction to prescription painkillers, our source added, and his reported “change in attitude,” following his recent injury.
Despite all the drama following their split, Kaley has been keeping busy by focusing on the new love in her life: her gorgeous brown stallion, Zasa! “Kaley is doing better than expected,” said our source. “She’s putting all her focus and energy on her animals right now, especially her new horse Zasa. She wants to devote her time to helping disadvantaged kids with her rescue animals.” The gorgeous actress has also received a ton of support from her fellow Big Bang Theory co-stars, who have reportedly made it their mission to fill her life with joy and laughter during this very difficult time. “Kaley’s amazing,” Mayim Bialik told E! News when asked how Kaley is doing. “She has amazing friends, she has amazing family. We love her to pieces and we give her as much joy and laughs as we give everybody who sees the stuff that we do — but she gets to experience it off camera.” How sweet!
