Kaley Cuoco filed for divorce a week ago, last Friday (September 3). Kaley and Karl Cook organized their joint statement announcing their split, then shortly after People Magazine published it, news of Kaley’s divorce filing came out. Things are moving fast too – Kaley has already asked the court to deny spousal support for both parties, meaning she doesn’t have to pay Karl anything and she doesn’t want anything from him. As I said at the time, she’s rich as hell and he has family money. I’m glad Kaley has protected herself with what is reportedly a rock-solid prenup. Good for her. As for how she’s doing… she sounds totally fine? Her publicist keeps leaking stuff to People Magazine and it amounts to “she’s fine.”
Kaley Cuoco is pressing on amid her divorce from husband Karl Cook. The Flight Attendant star, 35, who announced the split on Friday, “is doing fine,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, adding that the pair “haven’t spent that much time together recently.”
“She has a big career and puts that first in her life. It’s basically a growing apart and each pursuing separate interests,” the insider says.
Cuoco has been busy filming her upcoming romantic-comedy Meet Cute, in addition to starting production on season 2 of The Flight Attendant.
“She has a lot going on in her career now and loves her work,” the source says. “Their relationship is just following different paths. A marriage doesn’t work if you rarely see the other one.”
Cook, meanwhile, is focused on his career as an equestrian and spent last winter away from his and Cuoco’s home in L.A. to ride in Florida. “Karl is a lifelong equestrian with a thorough love of horses. His jumping career has picked up recently, and he did well over the summer,” a source in the equestrian world adds.
What I’m getting so far from the publicist-driven pieces in People Magazine is that Kaley isn’t looking to make Karl the villain, nor is she about to rollout a new boyfriend. Her message seems to be: we weren’t spending that much time together, we sort of outgrew each other, no harm, no foul. Which very well may be the case. But people are still talking about the Pete Davidson situation, and how Pete and Kaley have been working together for about two months, and how he’s single now, etc. The Sun had a gossip piece this week where the gossip guy misspelled Kaley’s name throughout, which isn’t a good sign:
A source explained: “When Pete and Phoebe split there was talk that his close friendship with Kayley did play a part. But now Kayley has announced the breakdown of her marriage to Carl, those around them on the set of Cute are saying they saw it coming. Pete and Kayley have got on incredibly well since day one but as the weeks have passed, it’s become clear there is some attraction there. Obviously they play a couple in the film and it’s all very romantic and sweet. But the chemistry between them is so palpable, it’s all people could talk about on set. When the cameras stopped rolling they’d be cracking jokes and were clearly enjoying one another’s company. A friendship has definitely been formed between them and they seem very tight.”
I guess we’ll see, won’t we? She doesn’t like to be alone. Even if Pete wasn’t her jumpoff, I wonder if they’ll try it out now, because what the hell, why not. Personally, I kind of hope Kaley has matured past that kind of ill-advised fling, because that’s all it would be.
