Kaley Cuoco is getting a divorce from Ryan Sweeting.
Their relationship in short: Kaley and Ryan met on a blind date and immediately moved in together. They got engaged in 3 months and got married another 3 months later. And now it’s over after 21 months.
They announced the end of their marriage with a joint statement. They promptly deleted all photos of each other off social media and unfollowed each other.
Kaley went on a rant to defend her marriage on Instagram in April (since deleted). The divorce felt sudden. So now people are searching for the “real” reason for the split.
The new cover of Us Weekly claims that Kaley and Ryan split because he’s an addict. Moreover that he’s an (alleged) addict who refused to get help. So she ended things.
The cover says: “Why Kaley dumped him: It was love at first sight then Ryan’s personal struggles turned their marriage into a nightmare.” Here’s the story:
Kaley Cuoco was gushing about her marriage to Ryan Sweeting when appearing on Watch What Happens Live on September 20. But behind the scenes the 29-year-old actress was already planning to split from the 28-year-old tennis pro, UsWeekly claimed on Wednesday, because [Ryan] was addicted to painkillers prescribed after a 2014 back surgery, it was alleged.
‘She supported him but she said he couldn’t make the commitment to get sober,’ a friend told the weekly. ‘He’s tell her he was working on it and instead go get wasted.’
It was added that she is ‘devastated’ their marriage has crumbled and has ‘sworn off dating.’
The weekly explained Ryan was sober when they married in 2013.
The athlete – who once ranked number 64 in the world – had a history of trouble with pills. In 2006 Sweeting was arrested for a DUI and possession of a drug with an intent to sell.
After they wed he ‘developed a dependency on painkillers.’ When he suffered a back injury just months after meeting her, he was prescribed pain pills.
Earlier this year, UsWeekly stated, he had another injury that caused even more problems.
‘Kaley told friends doctors prescribed something that he was taking too much of,’ a source said. ‘That is when it went downhill again.’
He promised to go to rehab in Boston, it was reported. But by the time he agreed to go, it was too late, it was alleged.
‘She couldn’t fix him. He wasn’t the man she thought he was,’ a friend told UsWeekly. It was also noted, ‘She couldn’t take his ups and downs.’ And there were the fights. ‘He’d lash out at her,’ it was claimed. [Daily Mail via Celebitchy]
