The awful truth about Michael Moore's marriage is that it's not working.
The firebrand filmmaker has filed a petition to divorce from his producer-wife Kathleen Glynn seeking to end their 21-year union.
According to Michigan's Mlive.com, which obtained a copy of the June 17 complaint filed in Antrim County, Mich., the 59-year-old Moore said "there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved" after a "breakdown" in the relationship.
The famed documentarian revealed that the couple separated sometime prior to the filing and have no children. He's asking a court for a restraining order barring his estranged missus from selling any of their joint assets until such time as they reach an agreement on the division of those possessions. That includes Moore and Glynn's $2 million home on the state's picturesque Torch Lake, north of Green Bay.
The left-leaning director's wealth is estimated at least $50 million as of 2010, according to CelebrityNetwork.com, thanks to the blockbuster success of such documentaries as Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Sicko.
The pair first met in his hometown of Flint, Mich. and tied the knot on Oct. 19, 1991.
