Kaley Cuoco has a prenup, people! That The Big Bang Theory money is all hers

Every cloud has a silver lining, and Kaley Cuoco's divorce cloud is lined with $72 million worth of silver. Thanks to a prenuptial agreement with ex-husband Ryan Sweeting, People reports, she'll get to keep the bulk of the money she earned working on The Big Bang Theory.

In lieu of support, Cuoco owes Sweeting a lump sum amount of $165,000, which he'll receive in two payments. Certainly not an amount to sneeze at for a normal person, although Cuoco could buy a bag worth that much — and she probably should to celebrate her amazing lawyers.

Cuoco is also paying for Sweeting's attorney fees up to $55,000 and a legal fee of about $10,000 that he incurred in association with the prenup.

The two were spotted together on a recent flight and looked very cozy, according to a spy. "They looked very much like a loving couple," an onlooker told People. "He was in the aisle seat, eyes closed and head back, and she was gently nuzzling her face into his arm."
