Michael Moore’s divorce is final – Michael Moore’s wealth and divorce settlement

Oscar-winning director Michael Moore, famous for documentaries challenging capitalism, has divorced his wife of 22 years following a civil court proceeding in Michigan that drew attention to his wealth.”‘Kathleen and Michael have mutually and amicably reached a divorce settlement’,” read a posting this week on Moore’s Facebook page.
For weeks, details of Moore’s divorce from his longtime spouse, Kathleen Glynn, have been trickling out of the tomes of court documents related to the case. They have revealed that as with most marriages that come to an end, the disputes between the Moore and Glynn are many.

But at least some residents of Traverse City, Mich. — the sleepy town where the couple has owned a property since 1995 — are reveling in the schadenfreude.

Moore’s filing from last year said his relationship with Glynn had broken down and there remained ‘‘no reasonable likelihood that the marriage’’ could be preserved.

Moore and Glynn own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo that once was three apartments. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs their wealth at $50 million.

In legal pleadings, Moore blames his wife for the expansion of the 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake, which has a value of $2 million.

“He criticizes capitalism, but capitalism made him rich, Gary Tracy, owner of Bellaire Bait and Tackle told The Detroit News. “Why he decided to live in this conservative area, I have no idea.”

“He is not a common man,” added another resident, Nancy Schwalm. “No way.”

Robin Roberts newscaster to Christen the New Goodyear Blimp on Aug. 23

Robin*“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts has been chosen to christen the new Goodyear blimp, joining a list of several accomplished women before her who have been given the honor, including Sally Ride and Amelia Earhart.

“This is incredibly meaningful to my family,” Robin said. “My great grandfather moved his family from down south to Akron in 1918 to work for Goodyear. Never could he have imagined that one day one of his descendants would be asked to christen the blimp. I’m very honored.”

The Akron Beacon Journal indicates the August 23 event will begin at 8am at the blimp hangar base in Suffield Township and that a limited number of free tickets will be made available to the public. The last christening of a Goodyear blimp occurred in 2006 and drew around 1,500 people.
