KALEY Cuoco filed for divorce on the same day she announced her shocking split from husband, Karl Cook, after three years of marriage, The Sun can reveal.
The Big Bang Theory actress made their separation official at a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday after revealing she had gone in “opposite directions” of her estranged spouse.
Despite the sad split, the couple said in a statement to PEOPLE that they still have much love for each other.
The joint message read: “Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions.
“We have both shared so much of our journey publicly so while we would prefer to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be forthcoming in our truth together.
“There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary.”
They continued: “We have made this decision together through an immense amount of respect and consideration for one another and request that you do the same in understanding that we will not be sharing any additional details or commenting further.”
The former couple tied the knot on June 30, 2018 after a nearly year-long engagement.
The ceremony was at a horse stable near San Diego, California where they were surrounded by close friends and family.
The Flight Attendant actress and Karl, 29, are both avid equestrians as he often participates in equestrian tournaments.
HOW THEY ONCE WERE
Earlier this year, Kaley, 34, jokingly called out Karl for not thanking her after winning a competition.
The Big Bang Theory alum commented on the post: “You didn’t thank your wife” after Karl shared a long post in which he gave his gratitude for his “team.”
Karl had posted a snap of himself sitting astride his horse Caillou 24 after winning the $100,000 HorseTaxi Grand Prix in Thermal, California.
He shared a second shot of the people who helped him take home the big prize.
The billionaire heir, who met Kaley at a horse show in 2016, wrote: “Yay me look how great I did, let me repost a bunch of other peoples posts about me! NO!
“This takes a village and I feel we have absolutely the best team! Jenni Melissa Sarah Hannah Shay Caylin James and Layton (sorry you’re not pictured, I did my best) these people are everything, what I do in the ring is merely secondary to their work.”
He concluded: “Truly and deeply, thank you.”
Last year, the now ex pair finally moved into their dream home together in Los Angeles, after the star revealed that they were living apart from one another two years after they wed.
She explained their living situation saying that even though their house is finished, Karl was still waiting to move in with her as she was filming in New York.
“We are built, we are so excited,” she told them, of their soon-to-be home.
“We have not spent an evening in it yet.”
At the time, she said that Karl wouldn’t think about living in the new place without her.
She explained: “Karl’s been at home and I said ‘why don’t you go stay at the house?’ but he’s waiting for me to get there and have all of the animals there.
“So when I wrap in April that will be our first time in our new house.”
Kaley joked about the unconventional arrangement, reassuring fans their relationship is solid: “We’re going steady, he gave me his letterman jacket and we’re moving in together.”
Since marrying, the duo had been dedicated to building their dream home in Los Angeles with plenty of land for their dogs, rabbits, goats and horses.
This past June, they celebrated their third wedding anniversary and posted sweet messages on their Instagram pages.
Alongside a throwback photo of the two, Kaley wrote: “NY, June 30th, 2016 is the year we met. 2 years to the day before we got married and now 3 years married! Why have you stayed married to me for so long?! I’m sincerely impressed @mrtankcook lol I love you oh so much you have no idea…happy anniversary!!!”
Karl responded with his own post writing: “I agree @kaleycuoco I am just as amazed it’s been been three years, feel like just a flash. “I love you so much and I can’t wait for a million more years!!”
