Waaaaah: Michael Moore claims his ex-wife is trying to smear him

Sorry, Fat Man. Your fellow demorats have set the new rule of  “#believeallwomen.”

From NY Post: Documentarian Michael Moore says his ex-wife’s lawsuit against him is a malicious end-run around a sealing order in their ongoing Michigan arbitration case filed to “smear” Moore in the press, according to new court documents.

Kathleen Glynn, who is also a filmmaker and has worked on many projects with Moore, divorced him in 2014 after a 23-year marriage.

Earlier this month Glynn filed a lawsuit against Moore in Manhattan Supreme Court claiming that he was stiffing her on profits from their joint movie projects.

Moore’s lawyer, Kenneth Warner, wrote in court papers filed Friday that Glynn sued in order to publicize information that would have remained sealed and confidential if their case had stayed in the Michigan court.

It was an attempt to “smear [Moore] in the press with her false allegations,” Warner said, scting The Post’s exclusive coverage of the lawsuit.

The lawsuit is “an act of extreme disrespect to the Michigan Circuit Court,” the court documents say, noting that decisions in the New York case could conflict with progress in the ongoing Michigan case, Warner said.

She “gratuitously included highly personal and confidential information in her petition in an apparent effort to increase public exposure and try to embarrass [Moore],” Warner wrote.

The fact that the suit revealed Moore’s negative income reportings to the IRS in 2014 and 2016 served “no legitimate purpose,” the court papers say.

The pair collaborated on some of Moore’s most famous documentaries, such as “Bowling for Columbine” about the Columbine high school massacre and “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Separately, Moore released a documentary in September called “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

Moore claims in the court papers that Glynn maliciously “filed on September 6, 2018, the day of the world premiere of [Moore’s] most recent film, Fahrenheit 11/9,” where it opened at Toronto Film Festival, according to the court documents. A lawyer for Glynn declined to comment.

The first court date in the case is set for Oct. 4, but it is unclear if Moore and Glynn will be present.

Stingy, fat man: Michael Moore’s ex-wife claims he’s stiffing her of movie profits

Fat man who rallies against capitalism refusing to pay his fair share of capitalist profits to his ex-wife. Shocker, not.

From Page Six: Documentarian Kathleen Glynn is cranking up the Fahrenheit on her fellow filmmaker-ex husband Michael Moore, hauling him to court for allegedly stiffing her on profits from their movie projects.

Glynn and the “Fahrenheit 9/11” director split in 2014 after 23 years of marriage, and an even longer business partnership.

“She was the driving force in the making of many of [his] films and other ventures in which Mr. Moore was the featured personality, dating back to their first big success, ‘Roger and Me’ (1989),” Glynn’s attorney Bonnie Rabin says in the new Manhattan Supreme Court suit.

Glynn also produced the Academy Award-winning “Bowling for Columbine” about the Columbine High School massacre and “Fahrenheit 9/11” — “the highest-grossing documentary film of all time.”

The suit claims Moore has walked away from a binding arbitration that was required to “flesh out the terms of an important provision in their property settlement.”

Glynn claims Moore’s trying to obtain all the benefits of their 2014 settlement in which she “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 by” Moore.

He was supposed to pay her 4 percent of total revenue from his creative works — but he gave her just $541 in 2014, the suit says. That means he would have pulled in just $13,525 during a seven-month period, according to court papers.

And Glynn’s not buying the amount of income Moore reported to the IRS — negative $350,862 in 2014 and negative $221,025 in 2016.

Moore and his lawyer did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
