(NaturalNews) The lavishly hypocritical critic of capitalism, Michael Moore, is on full display following the documentary filmmaker's recent divorce from Kathy Glynn, his wife of 22 years. Court documents unveiled during the divorce proceedings revealed that Moore owns a total of nine properties and spends most of his time at either a posh Manhattan condo or a 10,000 square-foot lake mansion in northern Michigan.

A vocal champion of wealth redistribution, Moore quietly embraced many of the capitalist ideals he publicly condemned, accumulating for himself and his now-former wife more than $50 million in net worth. The couple's Manhattan condo was actually three former apartments merged into one, and photographs of their lake house reveal what appears to be two large houses connected, with a third on the side.

Such gratuitous affluence is what one might expect to see from the so-called "1 percent," which Moore openly berated in his 2009 film Capitalism: A Love Story. But as it turns out, Moore is a tried-and-true member of the 1 percent, having ridden the waves of success that he gained within the American capitalist system.

"He criticizes capitalism, but capitalism made him rich," stated Gary Tracy, owner of Bellaire Bait and Tackle, located near Moore's lake house mansion, to The Detroit News. "Why he decided to live in this conservative area, I have no idea."

Moore built an empire of riches denigrating rich people

Though some say Moore was generous with his wealth, giving back to impoverished areas of Michigan where he grew up, his gains were ill-gotten in light of his supposed convictions. For someone who so adamantly opposes free enterprise while in the limelight, Moore sure takes advantage of its benefits in his personal life.

"He is not a common man. No way," stated Bellaire resident Nancy Schwalm to The Detroit News.

At issue during the proceedings was how Glynn recklessly used the couple's money to expand their lake house, which builders say boasts turrets, bay windows and hand-cut timber framing. Moore complained that the addition ended up costing five times more than Glynn said it would, resulting in significant losses to the couple's assets.

Moore had allegedly tried to work with Glynn to establish an approval process for purchases in order to reign them in. But this apparently didn't work out, resulting in the couple eventually separating from one another, and now finalizing their divorce.

"Kathleen has unlimited, unfettered, 24/7 personal access to 100% of all of the liquid assets in our joint accounts," wrote Moore in an affidavit.

Is it time for Moore's personal wealth to be redistributed to the masses?

As unfortunate as it is to see any couple's marriage end in shambles, it is difficult to sympathize with a man who, while storing up earthly treasures for himself, called for other people's treasures to be redistributed by the federal government. If Moore is truly serious about correcting the wrongs of others characterized as the "1 percent," it is only fair that he hold himself to the same standard.

At the same time, crony capitalism is not the same as honest capitalism, and some have said that Moore aimed to embody the latter.

"He's always spoken out against crony capitalism where the rich have rigged the game against working people," wrote one Washington Post commenter. "He's never had a problem with people benefiting from hard work and creativity, and not getting... cheated by a system rigged against them."
