LOS ANGELES — Actress Kaley Cuoco and her husband, Ryan Sweeting, are calling it quits after nearly two years of marriage.

The couple “mutually decided” to get a divorce after 21 months of marriage, a publicist for the actress said in a statement Friday.

“They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter,” it said.

The 29-year-old actress  and the 28-year-old tennis pro, who tied the knot on New Year’s Eve  2013, got engaged after three months of dating.

At the time, Cuoco said while it was unconventional, they had a lot in common.

This year, she topped the Forbes list of highest-paid actresses, thanks to her role as Penny on the hit CBS show.

Before her marriage to Sweeting, she dated her costar on the show, Johnny Galecki.

TMZ said there had been rumblings of trouble for months, which the couple has denied. But the online entertainment news site said that on Friday, Cuoco removed Sweeting from all of her social media.
