'Glee' star Jane Lynch to divorce wife Lara Embry

By
Jane Lynch has announced that she and her wife are to divorce.

The Glee star married psychologist Lara Embry in Massachusetts in June 2010 after the pair met at a fundraiser the previous year, but the 52-year-old has now revealed that the couple have made the "difficult decision" to part ways.

She told People: "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."

Shortly after the couple's wedding, Lynch said that marrying Embry changed her life and that she relished her role as step-mother to Embry's daughter Haden.

"I shouldn't say this, but I'd never dated anyone that I wanted to marry. I didn't think it was going to be out there for me," she confessed.

"But the minute we were married, I felt the difference. I felt like I am no longer alone. I got married - and I married a doctor!"
