Film director Michael Moore to divorce his wife of 21 years

Michael MooreFilm director Michael Moore has filed for divorce from Kathleen Glynn, his wife of 21 years.

Moore, known for high profile documentaries like Bowling for Columbine  and Fahrenheit 9/11, claimed in court documents that the couple’s relationship had come to end and there was “no reasonable likelihood the marriage can be preserved”.

The pair no longer live together, MLive reports.

Moore’s filing seeks dissolution of the marriage and a temporary hold on either couple selling or transferring  their assets, including stocks, shares, property and furniture.

Glynn has not yet replied to her husband’s filing. The couple have one child, Moore’s stepdaughter Natalie.

The couple were married in October 1991 in their mutual hometown of Flint. Two years earlier, the city had been the setting for Moore’s Emmy award winning debut film Roger & Me.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is the highest earning documentary film of all time, according to website Box Office Mojo. Moore himself has an estimated net worth of $50 million.

Glynn produced both  Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, which won an Academy Award.

In the mid-1990s, Moore presented satirical BBC co-production TV Nation

“no reasonable likelihood the marriage can be preserved”.

Sounds better than she has behaved in a manner so bad its unreasonable for him to be expected to go anywhere near her, or variation on nonsense like that in this country.

Also better than irreconcileable differences. Which also doesn’t make sense and is also untrue.
