In court documents obtained by Us Weekly on Thursday, September 16, the equestrian, 30, responded to the actress’ divorce filing, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce and asking to be given back certain personal items.

Cook requested “miscellaneous jewellery and other personal effects” to be returned to him and asked to be given the “earnings and accumulations” he made prior to and after the pair’s split.
Cook’s response to his estranged wife’s filing was submitted on September 3 — the same day they announced their split. Neither party has requested spousal support in the divorce and they will each be paying their own legal fees.
“Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realised that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions,” Cook and Cuoco said in a joint statement published first by People.
“We have both shared so much of our journey publicly so while we would prefer to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be forthcoming in our truth together. There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary.
“We have made this decision together through an immense amount of respect and consideration for one another and request that you do the same in understanding that we will not be sharing any additional details or commenting further.”
Last month, a source told Us Weekly Cook and The Big Bang Theory star have an “ironclad” prenuptial agreement in place. According to an insider, they signed the document before their 2018 wedding, protecting Cuoco’s “assets.”
Cuoco began dating Cook in 2016. The pair got engaged on her birthday in November the following year.
The actress was previously married to tennis star Ryan Sweeting in 2013 for just 21 months.
