Glee star Jane Lynch has filed for divorce from her wife of three years, Lara Embry. In June, the actress announced her intention to file for divorce and has just followed through on her word.
She previously issued a statement on the divorce, saying, “”Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter.”
In the documents filed in Los Angeles County Court, she cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. TMZ reports:
Jane just filed the docs in L.A. County Court, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The 52-year-old “Glee” star met 44-year-old Embry back in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco. They were married a year later in Massachusetts and registered for a domestic partnership in California soon after.
According to the doc, Jane and Lara have been separated since February. There are no minor children.
In the doc, Jane says she wants to terminate the court’s jurisdiction to award Lara spousal support.
The former couple did not have a prenuptial agreement in place and it’s likely that they will be splitting their assets 50/50. Stay tuned for any updates!
