Jane Lynch is now officially divorced, and her ex-wife Lara Embry is now officially much richer. Thanks to common property laws in California, Embry stands to make millions from her four-year marriage to Lynch. According to the settlement, which was finalized on Monday, the “Glee” star’s ex gets $1.2 million right off the bat. She’s also getting another million-plus dollars from various banks accounts, trusts, and a 401K. But that’s not all.

Among the other parting gifts Lynch will turn over to Embry is a membership to the L.A. Yacht Club and a dog named Francis. And get this, Lynch will also split 50-50 all the royalties from her TV appearances on such shows as “Glee” and “Hollywood Game Night,” which premiered one day before Lynch filed for divorce in July 2013.

We’re told Lynch gets to keep the marital home and all her track suits. Hopefully with time, like the title of her memoir, Lynch will view this as another one of her “Happy Accidents.”

As Gossip Cop previously reported at the time of her divorce filing, Lynch cited “irreconcilable differences” and even asked the court to overturn its decision to award Embry spousal support. Lynch and Embry wed on Memorial Day 2010 before 20 guests in Massachusetts.
