Glee’s Jane Lynch (Sue) and her wife, Dr. Lara Embry, are divorcing after three years of marriage.

The Glee star met Lara, a clinical psychologist and college professor, at a San Francisco fundraiser back in 2009. They married on Memorial Day of the next year in Massachusetts, one of the few states in the U.S. to allow gay marriage.

"Lara and I have decided to end our marriage,” Jane said in a statement. “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 has one child, Haden, Lara’s daughter from a previous relationship.

Jane is currently in New York City, playing evil orphanage boss Miss Hannigan in Broadway’s Annie: The Musical.
