July 19, 2013: Michael Moore Files For Divorce From Wife Of 21 Years
A Michigan filmmaker best known for his work on 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 the first step in 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 Antrim County Circuit Court where the complaint was filed 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. Their home alone has a taxable value of $1.2 million, and Moore has an estimated net worth of $50 million.
The attorney Moore has hired, Joseph Aviv, is described on the website of Honigman, Miller, Schwartz and Cohn as being Michigan’s leading attorney for “especially high-end divorce work.”
