Jane Lynch

Files for Divorce

Jane Lynch
is a woman of her word ... a month after announcing her marriage to wife Lara Embry was over, the actress has filed for divorce.

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.

Sources connected to the couple have told TMZ they do NOT have a prenup, which means they can expect a 50/50 split of all marital assets ... but that will all be determined later.

She has dropped in my estimation of her as a person ! I guess she didn't have time for a marriage counselor or to even TRY to work things out !

ROFLMAO, this is what sets back all these folks fighting for equal marriage rights. Sorry, you want to marry like the Heteros, I'm on your side but you can't go backing out of your legal obligation for spousal support when you tire of your wife.

Dayum, that didn't last long. Jane looks younger than her wife. I think they rushed this. Hope she finds her soul mate some day.

The only thing gay marriage has in common with marriage is a divorce lawyer. Welcome to the club

Just more proof that the gays can't stay married. All they want to do is bed hop. They want to get married but NONE of them be faithful. THEY are ALWAYS looking for the next BIG THING or someone with a better body. All of them are pathetic.

Well, it's nice to know that homosexual marriages can end just as badly as heterosexual marriages. Better luck next time Jane.

If gays wish to get married then they must adhere to the same legalities of straight people. She should pay alimony based on her income. See how marriage works? You can't just receive all the benefits. Lesson learned.

Now will come the lawyer fees, and court time. I'm a firm believer in equality for all Citizens, and this is part of it. Really, this is non news, why put in in the news unless Huff enjoys voyeurism.
