Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore is divorcing his wife, and the looming court battle looks ugly already.
Moore’s contempt for capitalism is legendary, but the director appears ready to slam soon-to-be-ex Kathleen Glynn for her financial missteps, according to information gleaned by The Smoking Gun. After all, the couple amassed quite a fortune from Moore’s attacks against the current economic system.
Moore and Glynn jointly own “multiple substantial residences and multiple companies,” including Dog Eat Dog Films, the production company behind hit movies like “Roger &Me” and “Bowling for Columbine.” The couple’s real estate holdings include a total of nine properties in Michigan and New York. The duo co-owns a Manhattan condo that was created through the combination of three separate units.
But it is the northern Michigan mansion (seen above) that appears to be the couple’s most contentious asset, and bad press about the home has apparently rankled Moore.
Citing “massive cost overruns” on the home, which was completed a few years ago, Moore has accused Glynn of causing the pair significant financial setbacks. In fact, he refers to the extravagant residence as “her Torch Lake home” in court filings.
The Smoking Gun could not piece the combined value of the properties from the court records but estimated its collective worth at “tens of millions of dollars.”
