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.

Too much estrogen, in my opinion. I don 't see how two women can get along for very long - gay or straight!

C'mon...the first three years of being married is usually what is called the honeymoon phase. Gay or straight...I can't stand it when people don't take marriage seriously. (And yes, I'm married and have been with my husband for almost 20 years and I'm not even 40.)

The entire community is in panic after Michael Douglas' HPV comment. "Gay Divorce Court" should be coming to cable TV soon. Popcorn anyone?
