Jane Lynch

My Gay Marriage Is Over

6/10/2013 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0610_jane_lynch_laura_embry_gettyJane Lynch is pulling the plug on her marriage to wife Dr. Lara Embry ... just 3 years after tying the knot in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal.

Lynch just released a statement to People.com 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."

The 52-year-old "Glee" star met 44-year-old Embry back in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco ... and they married in 2010.

Lynch and Embry are California residents and a California court will almost certainly dissolve the marriage, even though gay marriages are not legal in California.  The State recognizes marriages from places where gay marriage is legal.

Now ... California is a community property state, which means unless there's a prenup, Lynch and Embry would split all assets acquired during the marriage 50/50.  Although Embry's no slouch, Lynch has made a bundle on "Glee" and other projects.

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... they don't have a prenup.

Yay welcome to divorce courts and spousal support. Wish the movement had been a lot better and tried to hash out some of the crap from the already existing system. If straight ppl felt they were missing out or getting a worse deal think how many converts there wud b lmao

We didn't hear about Rosie and Kelly's 'divorce' until 2 years after the fact. Wonder why? Anyway, I like Jane but this whole gay marriage stuff is stupid. JMO

Jane is funny, super-talented, smart- why all the haters? Oh yeah, I forgot, the uneducated, bigoted, repressed, and bullies of America...

Why do you have to say "gay" marriage, why not just that their marriage has ended. You didn't say Katie and Tom's straight marriage has ended!

Whats up with the "GAY" marriage?? It wasn't a marriage? I can't recall any banner that says someone's straight marriage is over. Get over it. It was a marriage.
