Glee actress Jane Lynch files for divorce

Marriage|News|July 15th 2013

Jane Lynch and Lara EmbryGlee star Jane Lynch has officially filed for divorce from spouse Lara Embry.

The singer and actress announced plans to divorce Dr Embry last month, after three years together. They were married in Massachusetts under the state’s gay marriage law and later registered a civil partnership in California.

According to a report on TMZ, Lynch has now filed divorce documents at Los Angeles County Court, citing irreconcilable differences. Lynch reportedly does not wish to pay spousal support (maintenance) to Embry.

The pair have been separated since February.

Over the weekend, Glee co-star Cory Monteith was found dead in currently unexplained circumstances in a Vancouver hotel room. He was 31.

Lynch appeared at a Broadway fundraising event on Saturday and is reported to have been told of her co-star’s death shortly after coming off stage. The following day she turned 53.

    As I said in a previous post, this is going to get interesting, how will family court deal with two women ? Although I don’t think this case has children.
