Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore says his ex-wife’s lawsuit against him is merely an attempt to smear him in the press, The New York Post’s Page Six reported on Sunday.

Kathleen Glynn, who divorced Moore in 2014 after a 23-year marriage, filed a lawsuit against him in Manhattan Supreme Court earlier this month claiming that he was ripping her off on profits made from their joint movie projects.

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

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

A lawyer for Glynn declined to comment on the matter.

The first court date in the case is set for October 4, but it is unclear at this point if either Moore or Glynn will be present.
