Michael Moore, the documentary filmmaker, reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of 21 years last month, and it could turn into a multimillion-dollar legal battle.
Moore, 59, filed a divorce complaint with the Antrim County Circuit Court June 17, citing that his marriage to Kathleen Glynn had broken down with "no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved," according to MLive.com.

Moore and Glynn were married Oct. 19, 1991, in their hometown of Flint, Mich. The couple has no children.
Moore earned his estimated $50 million net worth by making documentaries such as "Bowling For Columbine" and "Fahrenheit 911," which Glynn helped produce.
Moore's complaint for divorce seeks a temporary order and judgment dissolving the marriage and restraining both parties from selling or transferring the couple's assets to others, including stocks, bonds, limited liability companies, real estate, household furniture, and works of fine art, MLive.com reported.
Always a polarizing figure, Moore's divorce news drew some hateful comments on Twitter.
