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.

    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 **** when they divorce. So no matter what, she wins.

    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.

    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 Says:

    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!!!

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

    so sad Says:

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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.

    #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 Says:

    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!!
