Kathleen Glynn filed a lawsuit against fellow filmmaker ex-husband Michael Moore, and claims that he has not paid her portion of their mutual movie profits.
Glynn’s lawyer claimed in court documents that Gylnn was supposed to receive four percent of total revenue from their partnership. Page Six reported that Glynn only got $541 in 2014, the same year the couple’s divorce was finalized.
Moore reportedly filed to the IRS negative $350,862 in income that year, and in 2016, negative $221,025 – which his ex-wife believes are false.
The gossip site reported from the suit that Glynn ‘was the driving force in the making of many of [his] films and other ventures.

Moore is seen directing on the set of ‘Roger and Me’ in 1990
‘Mr. Moore was the featured personality, dating back to their first big success, “Roger and Me” in 1989.’
Glynn also produced ”’Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary film of all time’ and ‘Oscar-winning “Bowling for Columbine”.’
In their divorce settlement, Glynn ‘signed over essentially all of her interest in the fruits of the parties’ joint efforts as film-makers in exchange for a promise of future revenue-sharing.’
Their divorce was finalized in July 2014, which ended their two-decade-long marriage.
Moore spokesman Christian Muirhead said at the time his client and Glynn ‘mutually and amicably reached a divorce settlement.’
Moore’s filing from the year prior said his relationship with Glynn had broken down and there remained ‘no reasonable likelihood that the marriage’ could be preserved.
Before finalizing the divorce, the pair squabbled over marital assets,
The large amount of money Glynn, who produced several of her husband’s movies, spent on their lakefront mansion in Michigan, was said to be an issue of contention.
According to Celebrity Worth, Moore had $50million in assets. Court records did not indicate exactly how much the producer is worth.
The documentary maker claimed his other half ‘unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds’ with the Torch Lake mansion, which put a spotlight on his wealth and opened him up for ridicule because he has so often criticized the rich in his films.
The home, which was completed years ago, is believed to cost in the neighborhood of $2million.
Moore previously claimed that his spouse squandered a massive amount of money on cost overruns for a lakeside Michigan mansion
Moore maintained that his spouse spent five times more on the property than she should have in what amounted to ‘massive cost overruns’ that set them back financially.
In a sworn affidavit, Moore reported that, in 2011, Glynn ‘discussed with me problems she was having with the money she was spending (which caused us some serious financial losses).’
The lake house wasn’t their only home. They owned a total of nine properties in Michigan and New York.
Their Manhattan condo was created through ‘the combination of three separate units,’ according to The Smoking Gun.
According to court filings, the couple – that does not have children – also failed to agree on when they split.
Moore said it was August 2010 and Glynn insists it’s June 2013 when Moore filed for divorce in a Michigan Circuit Court.
