Now that gay marriage is legal, gay divorces are a very real, very expensive thing. Case in point? Jane Lynch’s divorce from Lara Embry, which is shaping up to be a pricey one indeed. The “Glee” star is reportedly being asked to pay more than $90,000 per month in spousal support to Embry for an annual total of $1.1 million, according to TMZ. A document filed last week lists monthly expenses including $12,000 for entertainment, $5,000 for charitable donations and $4,500 for meals at restaurants, though $59,909 of the amount requested is meant to go toward “unknown” expenses. The pair separated earlier this summer after three years of marriage. Lynch seems OK with the development, at least, telling a photographer outside a West Hollywood café, “I think it’s the law, isn’t it? I think it’s the law, so I go with the law.”
