Later, Ryan Sweeting! Kaley Cuoco is back to being just Kaley Cuoco. The Big Bang Theory star ditched her estranged husband’s last name at a Longines Masters event in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 2.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, the highest paid TV actress, 29, has requested in her divorce filing that her name be restored. (As of Monday, Cuoco was credited as Kaley Sweeting during The Big Bang Theory’s credits.)
“And my weekend starts right now @mastersgrandslam,” the horseback rider captioned her Instagram photo of her place card at the event on Friday. The equestrian also attended the Longines International Races Gala on Thursday and looked stunning in a chic LBD.
“I had a lovely time at the #longines gala last night! #littleblackdress hair @derekpeterw makeup @kayleenmcadams wearing #giambattistavalli #tomfordshoes,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself yesterday, giving her team and wardrobe a shout-out.
Cuoco has been keeping busy by riding ever since her split from Sweeting, 28. On Friday, Sept. 25, Us confirmed that Cuoco had called it quits on her marriage to the former tennis pro, just 21 months after they said “I do” on New Year’s Eve 2013.
Us exclusively revealed in the latest issue, on newsstands now, that Cuoco ended things with Sweeting after she could no longer tolerate his abuse of alcohol and prescription pills. “She supported him,” an insider told Us, referring to how the actress was aware of his addiction. “But she said he couldn’t make the commitment to get sober.”
“He’d tell her he was working on it,” the insider added. “And instead go get wasted.”
