Movie fans in Georgia and elsewhere in America may be familiar with filmmaker Michael Moore and his highly publicized divorce. Moore recently ended his marriage of over two decades with wife Kathy Glynn; the settlement was finalized on July 22.
Moore, 60, perhaps best known for his documentaries “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11,” divorced his wife after the pair disagreed on the remodeling of their 10,000 square foot home. Moore reportedly accused her of spending five times more on the project than she had stated. The Torch Lake home was a popular party location for celebrities including Kid Rock, Madonna and Bruce Willis. Moore was also upset about the alleged breaches to his private electronic communications. Within the more than 700 pages of documentation he filed with the court, he asked that Glynn produce the findings of a private investigator she had hired.
The couple met in Michigan while working at the Flint Voice. Their fathers were both employed by a General Motors manufacturing plant. Moore’s first film documented the closure of the plant and the loss of 30,000 jobs. The man allegedly responsible for the plant closure, General Motors CEO Roger Smith, was the object of the anti-capitalist-themed film entitled “Roger and Me.” Moore began amassing his fortune when the film made millions in revenue.
