(LOS ANGELES) — In what started off as an amicable split, Jane Lynch’s estranged wife, Dr. Lara Embry, now wants more spousal support in their pending divorce.
TMZ reports Dr. Embry is now asking the Glee star for $93,809 per month in spousal support, now that Lynch’s “income, investments and assets increased dramatically with her newfound acting success,” according to legal documents.
Court docs also claim Lynch has made an average monthly income of $234,688 during the last three years and the actress told her now-estranged wife that she had $400,000 in savings accounts.
Dr. Embry said the two lived a lavish lifestyle where the actress paid for everything, which she became accustomed to. She added that along with Lynch, the two would spend approximately $40,000 per month on their credit cards.
And although sources told TMZ that Lynch is already providing support by paying for the house that Dr. Embry and her daughter are currently living in, Dr. Embry claims that as a couple, they’ve spent over $3 million on the house’s renovations and she wants the house or the proceeds from the sale of the house to be split 50/50, according to legal documents.
The couple, who met in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco, did not have a pre-nup. They were married a year later in Massachusetts and registered for a domestic partnership in California shortly afterward. Lynch filed for divorce in July.
