Reports are coming in suggesting that Kaley Cuoco's soon-to-be ex-husband, Ryan Sweeting, has requested spousal support from the Big Bang Theory star.

The tennis player also reportedly asked that Kailey cannot request spousal support from him, according to People.

The couple, who announced they were splitting up in September and filed for divorce shortly after, did have a pre-nuptial agreement that they signed one month before their lavish New Year's Eve wedding. That's good news for Kaley, who thanks to her part on the hit Big Bang Theory, is one of TV's highest-paid actresses. Forbes claims she earns an estimated $28.5 million on the show.

Rumours have swirled around on gossip sites as to where the couple's relationship went wrong, from drug addictions rumours to those about flings with a Big Bang Theory co-star.

Last week Kaley blasted rumours that she had cheated on Ryan with her co-star Johnny Galecki. "So sorry to disappoint , but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here. Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds - Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!" she wrote on Instagram.

Fans are clearly reaching out to the actress with messages of support - she posted this message on Tuesday to her Instagram followers, alongside a photo of Winnie The Pooh: "I'm feeling completely overwhelmed with the outpouring of kindness and support from the people that surround me and from those I have never even met...I want you to know, I read all your comments and your sweet words have touched me deeply. I'm incredibly grateful for all your love as I start this next chapter in my life."

"Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage," the statement read**. "They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter."

Kaley and Ryan were together for 21 months before deciding to split. The actress and tennis professional wed in a lavish ceremony on New Year's Eve 2013. But the pair had been plagued with rumours that there was trouble in their relationship since April.

"The few times Kaley and Ryan were out together recently, the tension was noticeable," a source told People. "You could tell the honeymoon phase had ended.

"It seemed they were trying to work out their marriage by going on dates, but they both seemed miserable."

Since the split was announced, Kaley has been seen without her wedding ring, and spent the weekend competing in a horse-jumping competition as part of the Flintridge Autumn Classic event in California.

Kaley posted an ode to her friends and family on Instagram alongside a photo of her horse-riding: "I have the greatest friends and family on this earth" she wrote.

Apparently Kaley has been using horse-riding and working out as a way to deal with the split:

"She loves working out. She often goes to the gym and enjoys spinning classes too. She also loves spending time at her riding club."a source told People.
