Kaley Cuoco's prenuptial agreement is being challenged

Many Colorado readers are familiar with the hit television show "Big Bang Theory," which stars actress Kaley Cuoco. In a recent report, Cuoco was named among the highest paid actresses on television. She has made recent headlines in other matters, however, as her soon-to-be ex attempts to challenge the prenuptial agreement signed by both parties.

Cuoco married tennis pro Ryan Sweeting in late 2013, just six months after the couple began dating. Their prenuptial agreement was signed a month prior to their wedding, which should have given both parties plenty of time to review the document and receive legal counsel. Cuoco has an estimated net worth of nearly $44 million, while Sweeting's net worth is estimated at $2 million.

Cuoco filed for divorce in late September, and stated within the filing that the division of marital assets would be controlled by the terms laid out within the prenuptial agreement. Even so, Sweeting is asking for spousal support, and is also insisting that Cuoco pay for his legal costs related to the divorce. He is also asking that she be barred from seeking any form of financial support from him.

As this case moves ahead, Sweeting may be fighting an uphill battle to try and gain any division of assets other than what is stated in the couple's prenuptial agreement. In order for a prenup to be invalidated, certain conditions must be present. Since the document was signed a month prior to the wedding, it would be difficult for Sweeting to argue that he was coerced into signing, or that he was not given sufficient time to review the document. Colorado readers will likely learn more as the case moves forward, as the media has been close on the heels of any developments.
