A judge has finalized Jane Lynch’s divorce from her wife more than four years after the couple were married.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ralph C. Hofer approved the pair’s divorce judgment on Monday. The agreement calls for Dr. Lara Embry, a clinical psychologist, to receive half of Lynch’s royalties from several entertainment projects, including several seasons of the TV series “Glee.”
Lynch and Embry were married on Memorial Day in 2010 in Massachusetts. Lynch filed for divorce in July 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
The 54-year-old actress has won two Emmy Awards, one for her role as Sue Sylvester on the Fox series “Glee” and another award for hosting the show “Hollywood Game Night.”
The judgment was first reported Tuesday by the celebrity website TMZ. According to various reports, Lynch must pay Embry a sum of $1.2 million over the next two years.
Lynch, the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning star of “Glee,” made her nightclub debut in June with a four-night stand in front of a three-piece band at the 54 Below club.
