Jane Lynch, who plays the acerbic Sue Sylvester in Fox's Glee, is getting a divorce from her wife, Dr. Lara Embry.
Lynch released a statement to People magazine Monday afternoon:
"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," she said.
The couple met at a fundraiser in 2009 and married on Memorial Day in 2010 in Massachusetts, a state that recognizes gay marriage.
