Jane LynchJane Lynch's estranged wife is demanding almost $94,000 a month in spousal support following the breakdown of their marriage earlier this year.

The 53 year-old actress separated from Dr. Lara Embry in February, and filed for divorce in July, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Embry responded to the filing by asking for financial help, and new legal documents obtained by reveal that she is seeking the cash to help her maintain the luxury lifestyle she had become accustomed to while married to the comedienne.

Embry claims Lynch only had $400,000 in savings when they wed in May, 2010, but the star's average monthly income has swelled to nearly $235,000 in the past three years, due to her "newfound acting success."

She alleges the Glee star paid for everything during their relationship, and they typically racked up $40,000 a month on credit cards.
