Mel Gibson Divorce

Mel Colm-Cille Gerard Gibson is an American actor, director, producer, screen writer. He was born in Peekskill, New York, on 13 January 1956.  He met Robyn Denise Moore, a dental nurse, in the late 1970s and got married to her on 7 June 1980 in a Catholic church. The couple has in total seven children and only one of them is under eighteen. 

After 28 years of a happy married life, Robyn Gibson filed for a divorce on 13 April, 2009. Though the rumors of separation were doing the rounds since three years, it was in August 2006 that the couple separated and started living separately. Both of them claim to have tried for a settlement during the period aiming to maintain the integrity of the family.
Though Robyn Gibson did not mention a specific reason for filing the divorce, it is heard that a Russian pianist, Oksana Grigorieva, is behind the rift that separated the couple. It is also heard that during the three years of separation, Mel Gibson used to live with her, and they have a baby daughter.
In the court filings, it has not been made clear that how the assets will get divided among the two. Robyn is seeking a portion of the property and money that Gibson has acquired during his three decades long successful journey in Hollywood. Along with that she has asked for jewelry and other assets.
She is also looking out for spousal support and attorney’s fees. The response to these filings were made by Gibson within four hours which states that since the couple had remained parted for quite a long period of time, he would not pay for spousal support. Also, the attorney’s fees will be paid from the property that the couple jointly possess and are on the documents submitted when the divorce was filed for. .
But this is surely not going to be that easy for Mel Gibson.  It is reported that this may be the most expensive divorce cases in the history of Hollywood. Since this couple does not have any pre-nuptial agreement, Robyn Gibson is entitled to get half of the total riches Mel has accrued when they were together. The total amount is estimated to be nearly one billion dollars.
His soon to be ex-wife denies any kind of domestic violence or any sort of physical abuse during the entire duration of their married life. However, Oksana Grigorieva accuses him of domestic violence. She also reports that he used to abuse her in front of their little daughter.
Robyn Gibson has filed for the custody of their ten year old son, Tom, who is their only minor child among six sons and one daughter. It is apparent that this divorce would surely break Mel Gibson as Robyn has always supported him as a wife.  Mel will surely find it hard to forget his long married life and will end up repenting for the mess up.
