Kaley Cuoco has found herself in the news again this week after the Big Bang Theory star broke off her three-year marriage to Karl Cook.

But this isn’t the first time the 35-year-old actress’ love life has made the news as the blonde bombshell has had her fair share of relationships over the years which fans can’t help but gush over.

And the star has been open with her followers about her romances over the years from the likes of co-star Johnny Galecki to Superman himself, Henry Cavill.

The 8 Simple Rules actress has also been candid about her failed marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting in a previous interview.

So, the Daily Star has taken a look back over her former flames with all the juicy details about their short-lived romances.

2002 – Thad Luckinbill

The American actress first found fame in the early 2000s when she landed her breakthrough role as Bridget Hennessy on the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules.

And as the star found fame, she also found love in the arms of her co-star Thad Luckinbill at the age of 18 back in 2002.

The pair enjoyed a short relationship together while they filmed the show and it was the actress’s first public relationship since she became a star, which came to an end after a few months together.

2003 – Kevin Zegers

The Golden Globe nominee soon went on to find love with fellow actor Kevin Zegers, best known for his role as Damien Dalgaar in Gossip Girl.

But their whirlwind relationship wasn’t meant to last as the pair ended their romance during the summer of 2003.

In the years that followed, Kevin married agent Jaime Feld in August 2013, and the couple welcomed twin girls two years later.

2005-2006 – Jaron Lowenstein

After her summer fling with Kevin, Kaley was looking for something more long-term as she fell hopelessly in love with hit musician Jaron Lowenstein.

During their one-year relationship the pair attended many red carpets together while the pop star performed in the hit duo with his brother Evan.

But by 2006, the pair called it quits before she auditioned for the role of Penny on The Big Bang Theory which catapulted her to international stardom.

2008-2010 – Johnny Galecki

The blonde belle couldn’t help but fall head over heels for her co-star Jonny Galecki as the pair worked together on the hit US sitcom which threw them into the limelight.

But with the eyes of the nation now on them, the pair decided to keep their romance private despite the fact they played each other's love interests on the show.

And it seems as though the tight-lipped couple did just that as fans remained blissfully unaware of their two-year relationship until it came to an end in 2010.

Looking back on their time together, Kaley called their relationship “wonderful” but explained that they “never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together” in order to keep their romance out of the press.

One year after their split, the actress added: “We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that.”

Despite their break up many moons ago, the pair have remained close friends over the years, with the star describing Johnny as one of her “best friends” back in 2015.

2010-2011 – Josh Resnik

Just one year after her amicable break up with her sitcom co-star Johnny Galecki, Kaley fell in love with Josh Resnik, who is an addiction specialist.

And it appears as though the couple were involved in a whirlwind romance as Resnik popped the question in October 2011 which the actress happily accepted.

One of Kaley’s representatives said at the time that her husband-to-be got down on one knee “during a quiet date night at home.”

But their passionate romance wasn’t built to last as the couple went their separate ways just five months later.

2012-2013 – Bret Bollinger

In March 2012, the award-winning actress dated the lead singer and bassist for the rock band Pepper, Bret Bollinger.

The two love birds were first seen together at a Lakers game in Los Angeles as they packed on the PDA while they watched the exciting game.

But after nearly a year together, Kaley and Bret parted ways in January 2013.

2013 – Henry Cavill

Shortly after her surprising breakup from Bret, the leading lady was soon off the market as she was spotted walking hand in hand with Superman himself, British heartthrob Henry Cavill.

The happy couple were first seen together in July after they allegedly met for the first time just one month prior.

A source discussed their blossoming relationship with People magazine at the time, and revealed: “It’s just the beginning stages of a relationship and they’re having a great time.”

But just two weeks later, their relationship came to a grinding halt and they went their separate ways.

After 10 days, an insider told Us Weekly that “things fizzled as quickly as they heated up” but insisted “they are still friends".

2014-2015 – Ryan Sweeting

Despite her heartbreak over Henry, Kaley soon found love again when she started dating former professional tennis player Ryan Sweeting.

The pair first met back in 2013 and after three months of dating, the sportsman popped the question in September that year.

And the two love birds made things official when they tied the knot in December of that year and the star honoured their relationship with a sweet wedding date tattoo which she got in-between her shoulder blades.

But their explosive love soon came to an end when they divorced just 21 months later, with the star later covering the touching tribute tattoo with a large moth.

Looking back at their rollercoaster relationship, the actress told Cosmopolitan in 2018 that their former sportsman “completely changed” throughout their marriage and made her consider never getting married again.

The Flight Attendant star told the publication: “My ex ruined that word for me. The person I ended up with was not the person I originally met. And that wasn’t my fault – that was his.”

According to People magazine, while finalising their divorce, TBBT star paid her ex-husband $165,000 and covered his fees.

2016-2021 – Karl Cook

After her messy breakup from Ryan, Kaley moved on to her longest relationship yet when she met Karl Cook at a horse show in California in March 2016.

Just a year and a half later, Karl took things to the next level when he got down on one knee as proposed to the blonde belle on her birthday in November 2017.

The happy couple later tied the knot in June 2018, and all appeared to be going smoothly until Karl made the shocking announcement that the couple were calling time on their marriage.

The established equestrian confirmed the news on September 3, 2021 just weeks after their third wedding anniversary.

The couple released a joint statement to People magazine, which read: “Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realised that out 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. 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.”

Only time will tell whether or not Kaley will divulge the reasons behind their shocking split last week.
