In September 2021, the 36-year-old actress and the 31-year-old professional equestrian first announced their split in a statement to ET.

The former couple told the outlet, ‘Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions.

‘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.’

At the time, Kaley told Cosmopolitan that she had not expected to take a second trip down the aisle after her first marriage to former professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting, 34, ended in 2015 after just 21 months of marriage.   

‘I honestly thought I wouldn’t get married again. My ex ruined that word for me,’ she told the magazine.

‘I married someone the first time who completely changed. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault — that was his.’

Prior to their marriage, Ryan and Kaley signed a prenuptial agreement though the retired pro athlete later asked for spousal support. 

Per their divorce documents, Ryan’s request for spousal support was denied though Kaley was ordered to pay him a lump sum of $165,000 as well as up to $55,000 in legal fees. She also agreed to pay $195,000 to cover his athletic training fees.
