(DAILYMAIL) — Jane Lynch has emerged for the first time since announcing her divorce.

The “Glee” star, who has split from her wife of three years Dr. Lara Embry, cut a lonely figure as she strolled around New York on Friday.

At one point, a fan stopped her in the street and offer her a hug and she obliged.

The actress revealed her marriage is over on Monday but insisted they still ‘care very deeply’ about one another.
