July 19, 2013: Award-winning Documentary Filmmaker Michael Moore Files For Divorce
A famous (or infamous, depending on who you ask) Michigan filmmaker best known for his work on award-winning documentaries such as Bowling For Columbine, Michael Moore has filed for divorce from his wife, Kathleen Glynn, at a circuit court near their shared home on Torch Lake. This is one of the first steps toward ending a marriage that began on October 19, 1991.
Glynn is the Academy Award-winning producer of two of her husband’s films, Bowling For Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11. She has yet to answer the divorce complaint. The two have no children.
The complaint was filed at the Antrim County Circuit Court, and states that the couple have been living apart, and that their relationship is at the point where there is “no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.”
The complaint for divorce includes the request for a temporary order and judgement that would dissolve the marriage, as well as restrain both Moore and Glynn from selling or transferring any of their shared assets.
In spite of the fact that he rails on the 1% in his film Capitalism: A Love Story, Moore is the man behind three of the highest grossing documentaries of all time, and has an estimated net worth of $50 million. On top of that their home alone has a taxable value of $1.2 million, meaning that the couple has quite the amount of money to divide during their impending divorce proceedings.
