Star of the hit television show “Glee” Jane Lynch has announced she’ll divorce her wife of three years.
“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. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter,” the 52-year-old actress said in a statement to People magazine.
Lynch and her wife, Lara Embry, 44, a psychologist, met at a 2009 fundraiser in San Francisco and got married in 2010 in a small ceremony in Sunderland, Massachusetts, one the three states at the time where gay couples could get legally married, according to SheWired.
“It's just the greatest thrill in the world to find somebody that you want to be with everyday,” Lynch told People in 2010.
The Glee star is currently starring in the Broadway revival of “Annie: The Musical” and recently performed her at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York.
It is unclear what type of relationship Lynch and her still-current wife will have. The actress described Embry’s daughter, Haden, as “my greatest pleasure” at an event last March.
