Jane Lynch

Estranged Wife Says

I Want More Money!

Jane Lynch
and Dr. Lara Embry's "amicable" divorce just turned "unfriendly" ... because Embry is making a full-court press for Jane's bank accounts -- to the tune of $93,809 a month in spousal support!

In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Embry says for the last 3 years, Jane's average monthly income has been $234,688.  Embry also says when she married Lynch, Jane told her she had $400,000 in her savings and 401K combined, and owned her home.

Embry says of her "Glee" wife, "Her income, investments and assets increased dramatically with her newfound acting success." 

Embry -- who says she wants Jane to support her in the lifestyle to which she gladly became accustomed -- says during their marriage Jane paid for everything, including lavish vacations.

Embry says she and Jane typically racked up $40k a month on their credit cards.

According to Embry's docs, she currently earns pennies, but still spends in the neighborhood of $40,900 per month -- including an average of $6,500 on clothes, $12,000 on entertainment/gifts/vacation, and $4,500 on eating out (hehe).

Sources tell us ... Jane is already providing Embry with support.  In fact, Embry and her daughter are living in the house Jane bought and Jane temporarily moved elsewhere.  But the house is a big sticking point.  Embry says they sunk $3 mil into the house for renovations and from the docs it seems she either wants the house or a 50% cut.

Sources tell us the couple did not have a prenup, which means assets acquired during the marriage will probably be split 50/50.

Jane filed to end her three-year marriage to Lara in July, citing "irreconcilable differences." The two first met in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco. They were married a year later in Massachusetts.

Jane said recently the financial negotiations have been friendly, adding, "It's just money."  Right.

It's safe to say that she got with Jane for the money!! She saw an opportunity for her and her child to be taken cared of.

Jane is also careless for divulging what she had early on. No one needs to know what you have. Your partner needs to know what you don't have or can't afford to get. That's what will ultimately affect them.

Embry operates like Obama's government. Earn pennies a month and spend and average of $40,900 per month. So much for living within your means.

The marriage was doomed when neither partner
could find the little man in the boat.

That is ridiculous! She needs to get off her butt and use the education she was given to make the money that she is most capable of making. And correct me if I am wrong but I thought that living in the lifestyle your accustomed too only applies to children? Plus I guarantee you weren't living that "lavish" lifestyle at first, so be a big girl and get over it. You did it once you can do it again.
