Jane Lynch

Estranged Wife Says

I Want More Money!

9/9/2013 10:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

She wants more money? We *all* want more money. Get a job and earn it.

I'm sure if you check out some of the posts on TMZ you'll find a bunch of 'get rich quick' links or 'date a rich guy' sites.

This sounds terribly grubby. 50/50 but she is degreed and capable. The partner who has is being gouged by the partner who feels she doesn't have. Ahhh the world of divorce! Ain't it grand. You seem grubby Doc.

I will never understand this idiotic law. Why should she support the lifestyle she has grown accoustomed to ? Its like I would sue my parents to support me further forever because I grew up like a spoiled child. Unless you are able to support yourself why should you leach off of someone else ? What kind of stupid argument is that.

Marriage is between a man and a woman, not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. Gay marriage is an oxymoron.
