Controversial director, political activist and social critic Michael Moore and his wife Kathleen Glynn are getting divorced up in Michigan. And it is not a “conscious uncoupling.” The Smoking Gun, Fox News and NY Post Page Six are all over the saga. There seems to be quite a lot of properties in this marriage which include places in New York, Michgan and California! Didn’t this guy hate rich people? In fact they owned about 10 pieces of real estate. One Manhattan apartment is said to be a reconstruct of 3 separate apartment and a Michigan House on Torch Lake is nearly as big as the White House. Actually it is this – the house the size of the white house – money pit that seems to have been the deal breaker in the 23 year marriage and the parties are going to trial over that and some other key issues. Notably, Michigan is an equitable distribution state. Says Fox News:
“Fahrenheit 9/11” director Michael Moore plans to bring his superagents, Ari Emanuel and Mort Janklow, into a Michigan courtroom to help in his divorce reports The New York Post. Emanuel is the William Morris Endeavor chief who inspired the Ari Gold character in “Entourage.” Janklow is the literary agent who made the deals for Moore’s books: “Dude, Where’s My Country?” “Stupid White Men,” and “Downsize This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American.” Both men are on Moore’s witness list for next month’s trial to determine how to split the tens of millions of dollars worth of assets amassed during Moore’s 23-year marriage to Kathleen Glynn, a fellow native of Flint, Mich., who produced some of the roly-poly provocateur’s documentaries. The agents can testify about Moore’s earnings, his unique niche in the media and how badly he was damaged when Glynn “unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds” building a mansion on northern Michigan’s Torch Lake.
According to Page Six, Mr Moore was spotted over the weekend with a mystery woman while Ms Glynn apparently was homebound in Michigan. It is unclear if this was a romantic situation or whether it was just a business lunch. But what is clear is that there is no love lost between Michael and Kathleen at the moment. For now it is dog eat dog. But you never know. They could yet reconcile
