Splitsville for filmmaker Michael Moore and Kathleen Glynn
The Bowling for Columbine director and his wife Kathleen Glynn have finalized their divorce.
Moore previously filed for divorce from his wife of more than 20 years on June 17, 2013, in Michigan's Antrim County, citing there remained ''no reasonable likelihood that the marriage'' could be preserved. The case was closed on Tuesday, and the pair have been granted their divorce, the Associated Press reports.
Moore and Glynn, who married in 1991, collaborated on several of the films that made him famous, including Roger & Me and Fahrenheit 9/11.
However, there's no need to worry about the well-being of these two because they have apparently "mutually and amicably" reached a settlement, according to a statement released by Moore's spokesman Christian Muirhead. The Associated Press left a message on Wednesday seeking comment from Glynn's lawyer.
However, while Moore's divorce may be final, he'll now be dealing with another headache. Neighbors of the Capitalism: A Love Story filmmaker believe his lavish lifestyle and the fact that he was willing to battle it out with his now ex-wife over a settlement — which includes nine houses in Michigan and New York City, including a Manhattan condo — contradicts the ideals he expresses in his documentaries, and they have challenged his sincerity.
"He criticizes capitalism, but capitalism made him rich," Gary Tracy, a storekeeper told The Detroit News newspaper, the Washington Post reports. "Why he decided to live in this conservative area, I have no idea."
"He is not a common man. No way," another resident claimed.
