Sad News: MIchael Moore Files for Divorce from Wife of 21 Years

Share

This is sad and a bit of a shock: Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has filed for divorce from wife Kathleen Glynn. The story appears in Michigan’s MLive. The Moores have been married since 1991 but have been together much longer than that. They are said to have a net worth of around $50 million. All of Moore’s hit movies– from Roger and Me to Sicko– have been made during the marriage. Glynn was a producer on several of the films and worked with Moore for at least 20 years. The couple otherwise has no children.

It’s never easy to report on a divorce when you know the couple have had a real life together. Both Moore and Glynn were born in Flint, Michigan where they reside. The couple hosts the Traverse City Film Festival, which begins this year on July 30th and certainly won’t be easy under these conditions. When I saw them last December at the Motion Picture Academy Governor’s Ball in Los Angeles, they were planning for the festival and everything seemed just fine.

According to MLive, Moore filed for divorce in June after signing the papers on May 7th. Glynn has not filed an answer yet. He’s already hired a powerful Michigan lawyer.
