More than a year after the divorce proceedings between Jane Lynch and her estranged wife Dr. Lara Embry took a turn into “unfriendly” territory, their union is now officially dissolved. And it was not cheap.
TMZ reports that in addition to a lump sum of $1.2 million spread out over two years, the Glee star’s former wife will 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.
The divorce was finalized on Monday.
