Michael Moore divorces wife Kathleen Glynn


Contrary to popular assumptions, not all Hollywood weddings end prematurely. Lake County, Illinois, residents understand many celebrity marriages last years or even decades. Such is the case in a recent celebrity divorce, when Michael Moore and Kathleen Glynn decided to end their marriage. Moore filed for divorce in June of 2013, Michigan's Antrim County, where the couple shared a lakefront home.

According to a spokesperson of Moore, both Glynn and Moore decided to end their marriage amicably after 23 years. Last year, Moore noted in the divorce filing that the understanding between the couple had collapsed and there were no chances of the marriage being repaired. Moore and Glynn married in Flint, Michigan, in 1991. Glynn was executive producer of many of Moore's documentaries, including films like "Sicko", "Fahrenheit 9/11", and "Capitalism: A Love Story."

When a wealthy couple goes through a divorce, many people are interested in how their property will be divided. However, property division is a part of any divorce, no matter what a person's economic status is. In Illinois, property is divided via equitable distribution, that is, based on fairness. Unless a couple reaches an out-of-court agreement, the division of property will be left up to the court and may not end up in each party walking away with exactly one-half of the marital property.

The end of a marriage can be painful for anyone, and celebrity couples are no exception. During a pending divorce, especially a divorce involving substantial assets, it may be in the best interest of both parties to make sure they understand all the aspects of property division in their case.
