Mel Gibson’s wife, Robyn, has filed for divorce from the actor, after 28 years of what (from the outside) had looked like a pretty happy marriage. They are citing irreconcilable differences for their split.
The pair tied the knot back in 1980, before Mel’s net worth shot up to an impressive $900 million. They didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement, which means community property including earnings should be divided 50/50. The couple has seven children together, but only one of them is a minor (Tom is 10 years old) and therefore Robyn is seeking joint physical and legal custody and asking for spousal support and attorney fees.
Through their publicist, Alan Nierob, they released this statement, ”Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so.”
I guess I should have seen this coming, when there were rumours of another woman a while ago. But, the old-school Hollywood gang are all for duking it out and staying together, so I really thought no more about it.
