Jane Lynch's Ex-Wife (A Dr!) Wants $94K Per Month In Divorce
Glee's Jane Lynch has been quite the good sport so far in her amicable divorce from Dr. Lara Embry. In fact, when faced with the cash that she stands to lose in the split, Lynch has been the picture of zen, saying, "It's just money."
Well, we hope she can keep that positive attitude because according to legal documents obtained by TMZ it appears that Dr. Embry wants a big chunk of those dollars--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."
The good doctor may need to be introduced to JC Penney, Netflix, and Trader Joes...
The couple didn't have a prenuptial agreement so their assets acquired during their 3 year marriage will probably be split 50/50. They're apparently still trying to figure out what to do with their house, in which Embry and her daughter are currently living.
According to TMZ, "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."
Keep breathing, Jane. Remember, it's just money. It's just money.
(But we've gotta ask, has the DOCTOR just stopped working entirely???)
