Michael Moore, who claims to be a champion of the middle class, owns nine homes. One of the homes is a big mansion on a lake in Michigan. Another is a ritzy multi-million dollar condo in New York City. Details of his lifestyle came out due to divorce proceedings, Detroit News reported.
By reaching a settlement, Moore avoids a trial that could have aired dirty laundry common in high-proile breakups and impugned his long-hewn image as a common man by disclosing details of his comfortable life.
His hit movies and best-selling books have begat a lifestyle far from most ballcap-wearing, duck-waddling denizens of Flint.
Moore and Glynn own nine properties in Michigan and New York, including a Manhattan condo that once was three apartments. CelebrityNetWorth.com pegs their wealth at $50 million.
In legal pleadings, Moore blames his wife for the expansion of the 10,000-square-foot home on Torch Lake, which has a value of $2 million.
He listed six media reports from 2011, which poked fun at the defender-of-the-poor for owning such a big house, as exhibits in the divorce case.
“He criticizes capitalism, but capitalism made him rich,” said Gary Tracy, owner of Bellaire Bait and Tackle.
Read the whole thing, someone else wondered why Moore chose to live in a conservative area, plus there’s a description of the Michigan mansion Moore calls home. His hypocrisy isn’t surprising considering that he’s also a big champion of unions, unless it means hiring union workers in his own business.
