Last month, Kaley Cuoco filed for divorce from Ryan Sweeting after just 21 months of marriage.
At first, it was reported that the couple (who only dated for a few months before tying the knot) simply moved too fast and rushed into marriage too quickly.
As more information about their relationship problems emerged, however, several sources claimed that Sweeting's drug problem was the real cause of the split.
Insiders say Sweeting had developed a crippling addiction to prescription painkillers, which he managed to hide from Kaley in the early months of their marriage.
Eventually, she found out and put her foot down:
“Kaley gave him an ultimatum: ‘If you don’t stay sober, then I’m done,'" a source tells Page Six. "He went to rehab, but when he came out he went missing for a period of time...like four days.”
The disappearance was reportedly the last straw for Kaley, and she kicked him to the curb just a few days later. Friends say she later did some digging and discovered that Sweeting has a history of substance abuse.
“He had some drinking issues in college and he was doing painkillers as early as 2013 at least,” says one insider.
It was revealed last week that Sweeting is requesting spousal support from Cuoco.
