It’s officially over between “The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco and husband Ryan Sweeting as their divorce has been finalized and it costs her a little of her fortune.

The actress managed to keep all of her “The Big Bang Theory” earnings from Sweeting after their short-lived marriage came to an end. However, she needs to pay him $165,000 as spousal support, Hollywood Life reported.

According to court documents obtained by People magazine, Cuoco have to pay Sweeting’s attorney fees, but not in excess of $55,000. She will also pay $9,387 for an outstanding bill Sweeting owes for legal services in connection with their pre-nup.

Cuoco will have to pay the tennis player in two payments and that’s it. This means Sweeting is not getting any spousal alimony either. The couple broke up in September 2015 after 21 months of marriage.

In addition, the actress will also keep their Tarzana mansion and a beach house they owned in the Santa Barbara area.

The “The Big Bang Theory” star is already worth millions of dollars at the time she married the tennis pro. After their wedding ceremony, Cuoco signed another three-year contract with CBS hit comedy series for $1 million dollar per episode. Although they are married at the time, the couple signed a pre-nup agreement that states each party will retain their respective assets. This means Cuoco can keep her significant earnings from “The Big Bang Theory,” Entertainment Tonight wrote.

Cuoco recently talked about the tough time she went through after her divorce. The actress also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that she regrets having her wedding date tattooed on her back.

Meanwhile, Kaley Cuoco has been frequently spotted with professional equestrian Karl Cook. She even shared some sweet photos of them on her Instagram account.

A source told People that the actress is “really happy” right now and just over the weekend, Cuoco and Cook were seen getting cuddly in first class flight from San Diego to New York City.

“They looked very much like a loving couple. He was in the aisle seat, eyes closed and head back, and she was gently nuzzling her face into his arm,” a source told People.
