In a conversation with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski, Jane Lynch discusses the season final of Glee, her character Sue and her divorce.
“With Gay Marriage Is Going To Come Gay Divorce”
Jane Lynch doesn’t have much to say about the implications of her divorce from Lara Embry last October, but when pushed she says she felt pressure to maintain a certain family unity as a famous, gay, married woman.
“I mean, with gay marriage is going to come gay divorce. It’s just how it goes. Where’s my parade?”
Lynch previously insisted that her divorce was ‘not a horrible thing’ and friends explained the actress wanted to stay friends with Lara for the sake of her former spouse’s 10-year-old daughter, Haden.
“It’s not dramatic. It’s not a horrible thing. It’s something that we’re dealing with. It’s two people who just decided it’s better to go apart than stay together.”
Do lesbians need a prenup? A question I never expected to ask this sunny morning. However, Jane Lynch maybe thinking so this week, after her divorce was finalized on Monday.
A year after the divorce proceedings between Jane Lynch and her estranged wife (Dr. Lara Embry) slightly sour, their union is now officially dissolved. But is come at a price.
According to TMZ reports, Lynch will need to pay a lump sum of $1.2 million spread out over two years to her former wife.
Dr. Embry will also get fifty percent of the funds in a number of bank accounts, including a 401(k); fifty percent of Lynch’s TV royalties; fifty percent of their $56,810 tax refund; their yacht club membership; and the family dog.
Embry, a psychologist, had initially asked for spousal support to the tune of $94,000 a month, claiming that during her three-year marriage to Lynch she had grown accustomed to spending nearly $6,500 per month on clothes, $12,000 per month on entertainment and vacations, and $4,500 per month on dining out. WOW!
The divorce was finalized on Monday.
