Kaley Cuoco Facing Alimony Requests from Ryan Sweeting

sweeting heart editedAmerica’s most talked about divorce between famous actress Kaley Cuoco and professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting took another interesting turn Monday. The ongoing divorce made more headlines after Sweeting requested spousal support — alimony — from Cuoco. The problem for Sweeting, however, is the couple signed a prenuptial agreement prior to their marriage less than two years ago that would not require Cuoco to provide alimony to Sweeting. Cuoco has a net worth of $45 million, while Sweeting is worth just $2 million. With those earnings, it makes sense as to why Sweeting would request spousal support.

The Breakup

Leading up to the official breakup announced to the media on Sep. 28, there were rumors surrounding the couple’s relationship being in jeopardy in April. Cuoco took to Instagram and dispelled those rumors, but little did The Big Bang Theory star know, their relationship would in fact end a few months later. Maybe Cuoco was tired of supporting the couple herself since Sweeting is a brutal pro tennis player? Currently, Sweeting is ranked the 1145th best tennis player in the world. Both Cuoco and Sweeting have deleted pictures featuring each other on their Instagram accounts. Now, we can only hope Cuoco and Johnny Galecki, who plays Leonard on The Big Bang Theory, fall in love and live happily ever after in real life.

Alimony in Tennessee

Divorce is never an easy process, and disputing about alimony makes the situation even messier. Unless Sweeting requested alimony from Cuoco in the prenuptial agreement, which is highly unlikely because the point of the lawful agreement is to protect each spouse’s property and money among other things in case of divorce, Sweeting has no case. Alimony is granted to the “less-propertied” spouse only if the spouse does not earn enough money to pay all necessary expenses. Since Sweeting is a pro tennis player, he is surely financially sufficient enough to not need alimony.

There are four types of alimony in Tennessee. Rehabilitative alimony is awarded while a spouse is obtaining the necessary training, schooling or experience to reach a sufficient income level. Once that has been completed, payments are no longer necessary. Alimony in Futuro is awarded so a spouse can continue to live a lifestyle similar to when he or she was married. This usually lasts until the spouse is remarried or dead. Transitional alimony is awarded to a spouse while he or she transitions from a divorce economically. It can be modified depending on the spouse’s current conditions. Lastly, Alimony in Solido is a specified payment awarded to a spouse that does not end until the spouse either remarries or dies.
