Jane Lynch is a busy woman with all the Broadway acting and brilliant future as a rapper, but the latest thing on her to-do list isn’t fun: she’s getting divorced. She and Dr. Lara Embry were married for 3 years. They wed on labor day in an intimate ceremony in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal. Here’s her statement from People, via TMZ:
Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another.
Just once I would love to see a divorce statement that is 100% brutal honesty. NOT SAYING hers isn’t. I’m saying how great would it be if Katie Holmes released a statement saying, “It should come as no surprise to anyone that my marriage contract is up and will not be renewed. We’re calling it a divorce. Yes, Tom Cruise is absolutely insane and there were times I feared for my life. Thankfully I am too famous now for him to make me disappear. I’m going to spend the rest of my life avoiding him and being thankful that I was able to get myself and my daughter Suri out of there before it was too late. Also, the guy is a total dick. Really controlling. Just a straight-up dick.”
TMZ has info on the legal issues that come with this divorce, which is slightly different from most as it is a gay marriage, meaning,
Lynch and Embry are California residents and a California court will almost certainly dissolve the marriage, even though gay marriages are not legal in California. The State recognizes marriages from places where gay marriage is legal. … California is a community property state, which means unless there’s a prenup, Lynch and Embry would split all assets acquired during the marriage 50/50. Although Embry’s no slouch, Lynch has made a bundle on “Glee” and other projects.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ … they don’t have a prenup.
So there you go. Best of luck to them both.
