Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting’s marriage lasted just 21 months before they called it quits.
Though the rumors had been following Cuoco for months now, they finally caught up with her.
But wait! The rumor mill isn’t done with the Big Bang Theory star and her professional athlete ex. It appears things are just getting started.
According to reports from today, it might have something to do with Sweeting’s alleged addiction to painkillers. But just yesterday, there were rumors swirling that the actress thought he might be cheating on her.
Either way, the writing has been on the wall for some time that their marriage was headed for destruction. The court documents filed on Monday state “irreconcilable differences,” but could it really have been that Cuoco’s husband had become addicted to pills after having been plagued by injuries in the months since they had been dating and quickly married?
A source close to the couple said, “She supported him but she said he couldn’t make the commitment to get sober. He’d tell her he was working on it and instead go get wasted.”
Sweeting had back surgery in 2014 and was prescribed painkillers following the procedure, which a source said Cuoco confessed he was “taking too much of.” But that wasn’t his first run-in with drugs. In 2006, the pro tennis player was arrested, while in college, for a DUI and possession of drugs. The troubles persisted, even though to the world (and on social media) Cuoco tried to keep up the facade that everything was all right at home.
According to various sources, Sweeting had promised to go to rehab, but by that time it was too late to save their short-lived marriage. “She couldn’t fix him,” a source said, “He wasn’t the man she thought he was. She just couldn’t take the ups and downs.”
It is also being said that, in addition to the addiction rumors, the pair just ended up not being as compatible as they thought. The same insider said, “Kaley is a lot more social and outgoing, while Ryan is more quiet,” noting that their split had “been a long time coming.”
