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.

Sincerity    

I can't help but feel sorry for Jane Lynch. She wasn't an "OVERNIGHT SENSATION" and it's taken her years to amass more than enough income to live rather comfortably. Lara Embry is a very well educated professional who's more than able to provide for "HERSELF & HER CHILD"!!! Furthermore, I don't think she's been married long enough to qualify for spousal support in California. I suspect Jane Lynch got tired of buying this "GREEDY AZZ COW'S" affection and decided to "CUT HER LOSSES"!!! GOLD DIGGERS AREN'T JUST LIMITED TO HETEROSEXUALS!!!

No pre-nup means the wifey is going to walk away with 50%'of the earnings during that time. Welcome to the wonderful world of divorce. The gay community rallied for the privilege of marriage, so let them also live with the crud that comes along in divorce.

You need to split anything you have together in half. Then grow up and deal with your own life. They dont have kids together so there is nothing to support. The courts need to make her work at mcd's and live on min wage for even opening her mouth. prenups should be mandatory even if you have nothing just like a blood test use to be. You should get half "of what you have build together" at the end and nothing more. That would stop all this greed. people dont pay their child support and the kids suffer for it and then rich whiny people want everything. {push a camel threw a needles eye} is all i have to say to this whole bunch.

Alimony is the biggest rip off. How is anyone entitled to money they didn't personal contribute during a marriage. Child support is a di
