Mel Gibson's Wife Files For Divorce

Mel Gibson's Wife Files For Divorce

Mel Gibson‘s wife, Robyn, has filed for divorce after 28 years of marriage.

Court documents cite the usual “irreconcilable differences.”

They issued a joint statement Monday, saying, “Throughout our marriage and separation, we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so.”

TMZ is reporting that there is no prenuptial agreement. Property and earnings are expected to be divided 50/50 (in 2006, Gibson‘s fortune was estimated at $900 million).

    Mel Gibson is such a hypocrite. He preaches Christian values and then cheats on his wife.

  • liz k

    Does this have anything to do with that woman he was hugging on the beach near his Costa Rican home???

  • ha

    She deserves all that $$ after 28 years with that dude. Get it gurl!

  • [marie]

    Kiss that moolah good-bye… she might go for the jugular..

  • Bunny

    Somebody’s about to get a majah payday! Mel is the biggest hypocrite around. What a marriage they must’ve had. Too bad for the kids.

    Well said.

  • Shar

    Jebus wept? How about I’m weeping because I’m not getting any of that $900 Million. Well, I guess that 28 years wasn’t all for nothing. Just think about it, some ppl stay married for 30 years or more and don’t get shit when they divorce. So no matter what, she wins.

  • so sad

    All you that are rejoicing this decision should be ashamed. These two have put 28 years and probably more than that prior to marriage into each other. This is not nor will it be easy for neither side, including their 7 children? No amount of money can mend what is about to be broken. From what I understand they have been seperated for a long time. It’s sad for time for this family and I hope during this ordeal they can work things out before taking this option.

    No amount of money can not heal 28+ years, 7 children, and life with one man/woman with whom you have become one with.

  • Anita

    Divorce is hard on everyone in the family. I’m sure Robyn and Mel did not come to this decision lightly. It’s not about money, that’s for sure, so I don’t get the other comments on here. She’s not going to ‘take him to the cleaners’ anymore than he’s going to leave her high and dry. The finances will probably be worked out fairly. The emotions for the two of them and for their children are the most important thing. I wish them all the best and the strength to get through what is sure to be a very hard period in all of their lives.

    Most of that money came from his movie “The Passion Of The Christ”. Remember he put in $30 million of his own money to make and finance this movie, so he got the bulk of the money that was made from profit. Now that was the smartest investment anyone has ever made if you ask me.

  • right on #113

    Their 6 children are probably grown ups now. I hope she has a boyfriend. Nonactress/nonactor spouses really get dumped on by their egomaniac actress/actor spouses.

    Mel, it’s time to get out the checkbook and pay up dude!!!

  • The Shiznack

    That demon baby in The Passion gave me nightmares, I want some compensation

  • so sad

    This is from E!

    They married in June 1980 and have seven children together, though only one—son Tom, who turns 10 tomorrow—is a minor. Robyn is seeking joint physical and legal custody of the boy, as well as spousal support.

    Man I hope they work things out because 28 years is a long time to quit and start all over again. She will have a hard time finding a guy who wants her just for her (plus age is always a factor for women) and he will only attract the money/fame hungry 20-30 year olds. People should think long and hard before they say “I want a divorce” because it is not pretty out in the world, especially in HW.

  • bridget

    Did he ever find her attractive? OK..that was rude.. Every picture I’ve ever seen of her has made me come to this conclusion… Mel likes men?

    Darn The Shiznack, you made choke on a piece of bagel i was just eating, lol. But you are right about that baby,I’m sure if you show Mel your sugar titts, he will compensate you well. :)

    He has cheated on her for years,took her long enough to leave.

    Why does everything have to be about age and relationships and not being alone?

    If she ends up living of life of peaceful of solitude, with visits from her children and friends, then she’s way better off than me!

  • raquel

    Sad. Hope they work things out. If not, I wish them both well. It’s their lives and they need to manage it — not the stupid ugly press.

  • Annie

    You go girl!!!! Take that loser to the cleaners!!!

  • raquel

    #1? Do you live under a rock? People can preach all they want, but they are still human and are not perfect. Things happen. Don’t judge unless you know the whole story. It takes two to tango.

  • Kate

    Lets see…..he’s a cheat, a liar, a racist and a alcoholic. Nobody needs that crap in their lives.

    And #11, quit being a bleeding heart! Geez, he certainly didnt care about HER emotions when he was doing all of the above! She is taking back the power, Good for her!!

  • mediterranean

    It’s sad, really sad after all these years.

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    28 years – good run.
    .
    fcuk her, she was never hot anyway’s. now he can upgrade in peace. to bad the biish is going to tke a shiit load of his cash.
    .
    some lame biish said “You go girl!!!! Take that loser to the cleaners!!!”.. haha.. the “loser” is a legend whos made a MILLIONS. now that lazy biish (who hasn’t done nothing in 28 years) wil get free money.

  • Carrie

    She’s a very dignified woman and professional nurse who deserves her freedom after seven children (one remaining minor), 28 years of marriage, a 2-1/2 year separation, and, yes, she deserves half the fortune and investments they accumulated and made throughout his career. He had not acquired fame nor fortune when she married him, she has raised six other children, and deserves half of everything.

  • Athena

    Good for her. I can’t stand Mel Gibson.

  • NOELLE

    Much as i may fancy Hollywood actors id rather scratch my eyeballs out than marry one. Im usually loathe to tar everyone with the one brush but it seems to be a case of fidelity being completely dismissed in famous people. Even those with long marriages like Denzel Washington have had cheating rumours. Those wives either choose to ignore it or to overlook it, something i could not do.

    Robin is also a devout Catholic and im sure she tried her hardest to make it work but there comes a point where enough is enough. The blatant disrespect Mel has shown to her over the years is shameful and it is his loss right now. She probably feels freer than she has in years. Its such a shame after 30 + years that it didnt work as they have basically grown up together and nobody will know them like eachother. No piece of 20 something ass can replace that connection in my opinion but obviously men have a different make up and let their dick rule their brain.

    Best of luck with your new peaceful Robin !!!

    *life*

  • Oh Please!

    R25, figures a C U Next Tuesday like you would be in support of that POS Gibson. And you need to get over the whole Pitt-Aniston-Jolie B.S. You’d think the way you people go on about it, you were getting paid by sticking up for them!

  • P

    Good for her, she should have done it a long time ago.

  • groundcontrol

    Oh, for heaven’s sake. Not every divorce is some tragedy. They had 28 years together and 7 children. That’s quite a ride and I am sure they are grateful for it. There is no purpose in trying to blame anyone. Now they are moving on.
    .
    I hate to break it to the youngsters with stars in their eyes but the majority of people after 28 years of marriage are more than ready to move on. Most of them however either lack the courage or confidence to do so. And they certainly rarely have the kind of resources that Mel and Robyn will have to resettle their lives.
    .
    New love is wonderful and delicious at any age – even more so as you mature and appreciate it more. I wish both of these people new loves in their lives. Amen.

  • groundcontrol

    I wanted to add how come none of these gossip sites with all of their alleged “sources” predicted this break up? It’s obvious that this has been in the works for quite a while. Lawyers take a while to prepare this type of court filing. How come none of these self proclaimed Hollywood insiders predicted this one? LOL!
    .
    And simply having said Mel cheats and Robyn will leave him eventually doesn’t count. We should have learned that in April 2009 the Gibsons would file for divorce. Fakers. Poseurs. Fools.

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    women are so fucking pathetic, and greedy. lame biishes always wanna take what a man woked for, when you did nothing but open your fcuking legs, mouth and beg for dcik. in a divorce a chick should get a couple of dollars and a unlimited metro card
    .
    .
    mel acted, directed, and sold his brand to get everything he has.. what work did she do to deserve half??

  • http://!E Shhhh!

    SWell, sad. She deserves and will get $450 million, half. Easy. mel preachd about his home life, kids,Robyn, etc., but he has strayed a few times. Mel’s looks fading. Box ofice draw is fading. Too bad and sad, he would notkeep what matters most: his family unit.

  • http://aol Patti

    That is to bad. They now have 2 little grandchildren and it is more fun to be grandparents to them when you are a couple together.

  • http://aol Patti

    I am sure Kenny Wayne and Hannah (their daughter and husband)are saddened by this.

  • debkz

    I don;t know how she stayed with him for so long. He is so over. I hope she takes him to the bank. If he is seeing someone else , I feel sorry for anyone who is stupid enough to get involved with him.

  • passing Through

    Good for her. I guess this latest hooker/affair was just one hooker/affair too many. I guess once it got past 5,000 she’s had enough. I like Mel – despite his severe case of the crazies – but he needs to give her 75% just for putting up with his crazy ass for 28 years!

  • http://egotastic.com lakers fan in boston

    i would see that i feel bad for him that he’s losing half his money, but im pretty sure he did something wrong
    he looks like a douche, and he probably cheated on her so whatever
    lol what did he she in her 0.0

    once again, it shows how important pre-nups r ppl!! but not in case of this douche

  • Lorraine

    Even though they’ve been married 28 years, there is no point staying together if there is no happiness or love. Life is too short!

  • sam

    Please leave him without nothing! And hire a jewish layer, that way he will learn and is going to hurt him even more.

  • iloveumel

    900 million comes from a little thing called ICON….i feel bad for him though because he seems unhappy

  • TWPUMPKIN

    #23 shut your pie hole! I love Mel Gibson. He has made some great films. His wife was around during the good times and to spend the money. When Mel has problems she bails. She is a user! Get a job lady!

  • AQ

    #35 She stayed home prob at Mel’s request to raise their 7 kids. He is a catholic so would not of wanted her to work. Did your wife take all your money?Is this why your attitude is warped? Robyn stuck by him for a long time and i bet they work it out quietly and quickly. LOSER!!!!!!!!

  • fea2

    Mel Gibson is a hypocrite and philanderer. I guess Robyn finally got wise or fed up. Sad story, but unlike a lot of women, she will be taken well care of.

  • truvy

    You go girl. Get your half and pamper yourself.

  • Bambi

    I think that it’s sad that they would divorce after that many years of marriage! I think they should try and work things out. But I don’t know why she shouldn’t get half of his money! She’s given him all those children, stayed by him for all these years… of course she should get half!

  • http://righteous.bz/ MMA

    Why wouldn’t this man get a pre-nup. That bitch is going to steal everything he has ever worked for.
