Glee’ star Jane Lynch is officially a single woman, after her divorce from Lara Embry was finalised.
The 54-year-old actress has had to pay her ex-wife, who is a psychologist, a whopping USD 1.2 million in a property settlement spread over a two-year period.
Embry is also entitled to a lot more, including half of Lynch’s royalties from her hit show Glee, and other TV appearances, reported TMZ online.
She is also being granted USD 847, 485 – half of ‘several bank and trust accounts’ and keeping their dog Francis. Lynch filed court documents in July to legally dissolve her three-year marriage to Embry, after splitting in February 2012. The pair are said to have been on ‘very civilized’ terms with one another after coming to an agreement about their split.
Lynch previously insisted that her divorce was ‘not a horrible thing’ and friends explained the actress wanted to stay friends with Embry for the sake of her former spouse’s 10-year-old daughter, Haden.
