Kaley Cuoco Finalizes Divorce From Karl Cook Months Following Split
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook are officially divorced.
Page Six said that the finalization first emerged on Tuesday after The Blast obtained copies of the legal document. It also noted that papers do not provide further information on the settlement.
The “Big Bang Theory” alum filed for divorce in September 2021. It came after she and her then-husband announced their split via a joint statement.
Speaking to the reputed publication, the pair shared that “despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions.”
It was also said that there was “no anger or animosity” between the two personalities, adding that it was “quite the contrary.”
Karl Cook and Kaley Cuoco first hinted at their romance earlier in March 2016. Insider reported that it was months before the actress’s divorce from her first husband, Ryan Sweeting, was finalized.
The relationship continued to progress in the months that followed. In November 2017, the then-couple announced their engagement and shared the news with their fans and followers.
Reports revealed that Cook proposed to Cuoco on her 32nd birthday. The pair also gave netizens a glimpse of what happened during the proposal through a video.
In June 2018, the two personalities exchanged vows and officially tied the knot in a San Diego, California ceremony.
In April 2022, months after announcing the split, Kaley Cuoco told Glamour that she “will never get married again.” She even emphasized that the magazine could “literally put [her statement] on the cover” of the issue.
The “Flight Attendant” actress explained, however, that she would “love to have a long-lasting relationship or a partnership.” She also pointed out that she believes in love because she has had “incredible relationships.”
Cuoco later added that she “loves love.” Moreover, she shared that she likes “being someone’s partner and having that companionship.”
Days after the publication of her cover issue for Glamour, Kaley Cuoco seemingly confirmed that she has a new man in her life. She posted photos of her and Tom Pelphrey on Instagram, featuring their trip to the mountains at the time.
The “Iron Fist” actor, likewise, shared some snaps from the trip. Some of the pictures show the two celebrities getting cozy and sweet to each other.
Later in May, Cuoco told USA Today that what happened between her and Pelphrey “was love at first sight.” She said they “immediately connected,” adding that they are “ready to build a life together.”
