Winning! Kaley Cuoco managed to keep all of her millions from ex Ryan Sweeting after their brief marriage came to a devastating end. Keep reading for how she was able to completely protect her ‘The Big Bang Theory’ fortune.
Game, set, match! Kaley Cuoco, 30, has made darn sure that tennis pro ex-husband Ryan Sweeting, 28 couldn’t lay a finger on her hard-earned TV millions after their 21 month marriage came to a crushing end. In their newly finalized divorce settlement, he’s walking away with almost no money AND no support from the highly paid actress, and we’ve got the details about how she was able to pull it all off.
The pretty blonde was already worth millions when she wed the tennis pro, but after their wedding she signed a three-year contract extension on TBBT that pays her $1 million per episode. Yep, that’s $72 million dollars folks, but even though they were married at the time, the couple’s iron-clad pre-nup made sure that all that money is hers and he isn’t entitled to a dime of it, according to TMZ.
Not only that, she keeps the couple’s Tarzana, CA mansion and a beach house they owned in the Santa Barbara area. Ryan doesn’t get a chunk of any of that and he also isn’t getting any spousal support from his ex either.
While Kaley seemed so impulsive by getting engaged to Ryan after only two months of dating – then getting married a couple of months later on Dec. 31 2013, there was nothing impetuous about how she planned out protecting her vast fortune in case their sudden romance turned sour. She got an air-tight pre-nup to make sure that if her instincts about her man were wrong, her finances wouldn’t take a hit because her heart jumped before her head.
Ryan leaves the marriage with a one time payment of $165,000, which is less than fifth of what Kaley gets for shooting one episode of The Big Bang Theory. She also agreed to pay off a nearly $200K bill to his personal trainers. The only thing he does get from their brief marriage? Any cash or gift certificates her had in his possession when they split up. Ouch! And of course he’ll always have the giant “Kaley” tattoo he got on his forearm to remember their brief time together.
HollywoodLifers, are you impressed Kaley managed to keep her fortune away from Ryan? Do you think she was foolish to rush into marriage with him in the first place?
