In addition to that, Sweeting will receive attorney fees, not in excess of US$55,000 (AU$75,000), and US$9,387 (AU$12,800) as outstanding bill the tennis player owes for legal services rendered to him in connection with the prenup. Cuoco also agreed to pay US$195,000 (AU$266,000) for Sweeting’s two personal trainers. On the other hand, Cuoco will receive their Santa Barbara beach house and Tarzana, California, home.
