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

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.

  1. I still like him a lot, so much so I will sign a pre nuptial just to have a cup of coffee with him. I think he is a great guy and I like him!

  2. What is there to say that hasn’t already been expressed? As you can see he is not very well liked. Dont know much about his wife except that she’s finally getting away from this fat blowhard and hopefully will take the money with her. Deserves it for putting up with this big mean man for all these years!

  3. Moore is such a liberal phony. Over the years he always dressed like a “common man”, when he spoke on his documentories or when he was being interviewed. He wore brown baggy pants, plaid or cheap looking buttoned shirt and always worn a cap. Of course he always needed a haircut.

  4. The classic Leftist-Phony-Anti-American-Dufas. He rails against the ‘rich’, business and conservatives…and he is every bit the fat, rich and conservative in his assets and
    investments. Can’t think of a nastier, less talented man…hope she takes him to the cleaners.

  5. Michael Moore is one big fraud. While condemning capitalism and the greed of corporate America, Mr. Moore has, as the above article states, accumulated a $50 million fortune. Stocks, bonds, a penthouse, a custom home on Michigan’s Torch Lake and other assets. In addition, Moore loudly complained that Hollywood does little in employing minorities. But his own record in hiring minorities for his films is a joke. This is all spelled out in the book, “Do As I, (Not As I Do)” by Pete Schweitzer. Read this book!. You will discover the real Michael Moore.

  6. I hope she takes this worthless, elitist, limo lib 2%er to the cleaners. How she put up with this bloat for 21 years is beyond me.

  7. She should clean him out good. He is nothing but a big blowheart who practices communism and attempts to destroy the country who made him rich. The fact she stayed with him this long is amazing.

  8. No wonder the pig was with the anti Wall street scum,with only 50 million I guess he thinks that he is poor..tough to be a really rich true communist…so I guess he will just pretend he is poor

  9. I hope this is isn’t the worst thing that happens to this douchebag – he deserves far worse…railing against the American way of life, while he takes taxpayer subsidies to make his propaganda films, all the while perched in his 5th avenue penthouse apartment or his torch lake Michigan estate ( google for photos-you won’t believe it!) I think we can all be glad he hasn’t reproduced…
