Mel Gibson’s wife wants a divorce

April 13th, 2009 // 115 Comments

Mel Gibson’s wife Robyn filed for divorce on Good Friday, according to TMZ:

Sources tell us there is no prenuptial agreement — they were married in 1980, before Mel Gibson amassed a fortune estimated at $900 million back in 2006. Under the laws of California, community property — which includes earnings — is divided 50/50.
Robyn is also asking for spousal support and attorneys fees.
Robyn lists the date of separation as “to be determined.” This is important, because earnings generally cease to be community property when the couple separates. There could be a skirmish over this. We’re told the couple grew increasingly apart over the last few years, especially since Mel’s drunk driving arrest in 2006.

Wow. She divorced the guy who made The Passion of the Christ on Good Friday? I hope she learned the secret of his seven herbs and spices because he’s definitely not telling her now. The Colonel holds no quarter for blasphemers!

    you guys are off with the fairies if you think that being a single parent is the same as having your spouse be away for a long time. You still have someone out there working and financially supporting you, the kids still know their dad, he does come back.

    Yea sure it isn’t an ideal situation, but being a single parent is a whole lot harder and Gibsons wife had it easy with LOADS OF MONEY TO HIRE HELP.

    So allow me if I don’t shed a tear for poor Mrs. Gibson.

    Awesome, Mel has decided to become a magician? Well, at least he didn’t decide to become a singer.

    I hope she takes this anti-semetic, bible-thumping, philandering drunkard to the fucking cleaners.

    Wow… Mel has gotten old.. That’s sad. And for some reason, I am always sad when I hear about people that have lived together for so many years divorcing. They were married for 29 years, and now divorce? That’s really-really sad.

    What is wrong with women these days? You fight so damn much for independence and when your husband leaves you or you leave him everything has to be a huge mess with the financials. Honestly i can see her getting some money but $450million? Give me a break. Go find your ass a job. Work like the rest of us independent women. I live with my boyfriend and we split everything 50/50 no matter what. I don’t need any of his money for my portion of the bills. I work too damn hard. Screw that bitch. Everyone complains about Mel’s actions but hey if everyone else out there was like the Truman Show and had all their wrong acts displayed for millions they would be ridiculed like no other. We’ve all done and said rude and crude things. So listen up people, that halo you supposedly have on top of your head is fake and being held up with devil horns!

    Mel Gibson is being screwed by the same ppl who screwed Michael Jackson’s career. Who made the life of Marlon Brando, a living hell. They swing right back at u. next in line is none other than Prince Harry, for what he did.

  8. I honestly wich Mel Gibson and his wife would get over whatever they’re going through now like they have done in the past

    perfectly honesty??? men who reach a certain age and begin going out with and impregnating women young enough to be their daughters are very, very sad. there is something psychological goin on that they refuse to get help with and they kno within themselves its nothing but cowardice. rather than face the person they have become in life they attempt to walk backwards.

    meanwhile there are no shortage of younger women/men who know these suckers are out there and the ones with little moral upbringing themselves lay in wait. she’ll give Mel a child and sue his butt in three years for the rest of what he’s worth.

    i’m glad to see more intelligent women such as Sanford’s wife, Tiger’s wife refuse to take the bull. standing by a good man who went messed up on a weekend etc., is one thing but people who disrespect the person who brought them along and shared with them are a disgrace and the world needs to know it in no uncertain terms.

    i really liked Mel, but this has soured me on supporting him financially any more. i have some of his movies. i will not be buying another one or going to see anything else Mel. for me he can pull up a wheelchair right alongside Woody Allen and Roman Palandski.

    just seems a man his age should kno by now he’s being used. 3years tops and newYoung-wifey will demand half he’s then worth and walk right into the arms of someone her own age.

    johnEdwards is a bigger joke but at least he stayed within his age group.

    ps: that kind of goatee as in bradPitt is truly the pits. … cant think of a single woman who adores that literally GOAT-i

  14. He looks cross between Colonel Sanders and Josef Fritzl. One is a finger and the other is a Licker Licks window. No wonder she wants a divorce.
