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.
