Filmmaker Michael Moore has done quite well, thank you, the son of a GM assembly worker who came from humbling beginnings, railing against General Motors in the low-budget, 1989 film "Roger and Me."
Francis X. Donnelly of The Detroit News writes that he and wife Kathy Glynn, who co-produced some of his earlier documentaries, own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs their wealth at $50 million.
Interestingly, in divorce papers, Moore blames his wife for mocking media coverage of him.
He says it was her who was responsible for the expansion of their 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake in northern Michigan, which has a value of $2 million.
In the divorce papers, he lists six media reports from 2011, which poked fun at the defender-of-the-poor for owning such a big house, Donnelly writes.
After 22 years, Moore and Glynn are calling it quits. The divorce is set to be finalized in a settlement Tuesday at Antrim County Circuit Court in nearby Bellaire, the News reports.
The News reports that the couple met in the mid-1970s while working at a biweekly newspaper, the Flint Voice, founded by Moore. Both of their fathers worked on the assembly line at GM.
