Actress Jane Lynch and her wife, Dr. Lara Embry, are divorcing after a little over three years of marriage, PEOPLE confirmed Monday.
In a statement released Monday, the Emmy-winning Glee star said:
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 couple met at a fundraiser in 2009. They married on Memorial Day 2010, in Sunderland, Mass.
Lynch, 52, is currently on Broadway in the revival of ‘Annie.’ She performed a number from the show during last night’s Tony Awards.
