Kaley Cuoco answered her divorce rumors this week, with the Big Bang Theory star taking to Instagram to share a happy picture of herself and husband Ryan Sweeting.
Cuoco has faced mounting but largely unsourced rumors of trouble in her marriage. The latest report claimed that a picture Kaley took with co-star and former flame Johnny Galecki was proof that her marriage was falling apart.
The rumors themselves could be taken with a big grain of salt. One of the leading publications pushing the reports, Celeb Dirty Laundry, has been known to speculate or outright fabricate reports, especially when it comes to celebrity divorces.
The report used an unnamed source who claimed that Ryan Sweeting and Kaley Cuoco were near divorce.
“Friends of the couple are whispering that their dysfunctional marriage is about to crumble into divorce,” the Celeb Dirty Laundry report noted.
But other sites have pointed to trouble for Kaley and Ryan. Other media outlets have reported that the couple no longer sleeps in the same room, and that Ryan has grown “tired” of Kaley’s “erratic behavior.”
“She’s started bossing Ryan around and treating him like a houseboy,” a source claimed. “They’ve been fighting a lot because he tells her she’s not a star at home.”
The couple’s relatively fast courtship may be the source of some of the rumors. They dated only a short time before getting married on New Year’s Eve last year, though Kaley said she knew it was right.
“I admit it happened fast, but that’s who I am,” she said in an interview with Cosmopolitan. “When we met, I knew he was the one. [At my wedding], I felt like a rock star and a bad**s. What was amazing in that room, it was so full of love.”
Now Kaley Cuoco appears to be fighting back against the divorce rumors. A photo posted on Instagram (but later deleted) showed Kaley and Ryan cuddled together and laughing.
Kaley has often used Instagram to dispel divorce rumors, including last month when she posted a picture of the couple showing affection along with the caption, “Love is a condition in which the happiness of the other person is essential to your own.”
Ryan Sweeting and Kaley Cuoco have continued to fight divorce rumors in real life as well, including an appearance together at a Los Angeles Lakers game last week, where they appeared very much in love.
