Mel and Robyn Gibson Finalize Divorce; $850 MILLION Split Evenly

by at . Comments

Often forgotten during the Mel Gibson-Oksana Grigorieva drama of recent years was the fact that he and wife Robyn were married, albeit separated, the whole time.

No longer.

Mel's net worth of $850 million will be divided evenly between the pair, who were married for 28 years, according to those familiar with their divorce settlement.

The dissolution of their marriage was finalized late last week. Robyn filed for divorced in April 2009, but she and Mel, who have seven children, remain close.

Gibson split with Robyn after announcing he was having a baby with Oksana Grigorieva. Gibson's baby Lucia with Oksana was born October 30, 2009.

That couple split a short time later as documented in the now-infamous Mel Gibson rants. Gibson has since worked out a custody deal with Oksana.

Robyn has asked that her maiden name of Moore be legally restored, but there is clearly much more than restoring her good name involved here.

Believed to be by far the largest divorce settlement in Hollywood history, the actor's payout to Robyn dwarfs others in the nine-figure range even.

Challenge extended, Vanessa Bryant.

Cant believe there are so many racist comments here. The wonder the world is such a horrid place.

I usually don't agree with the wives getting 1/2 when they didn't work but in this case she was with him for 28 years & 7 kids. She never has bad mouthed him when it would've been easy to do so. Good for her. If these men want to keep their cash stop getting married & do what you want. Why get married if you don't want to commit? I do not agree with woman being married for 3 years & getting 1/2 or if they weren't there from the start before the fame.

UGHHH! @WILL G you my friend are the racist bastard............. I beg to differ, there are LOTS more black ni&&ers on the welfare then whites, because unless you have 10 kids gold teeth, drive a caddy with pimped out wheels and gold trim you are not able to get welfare........... so u do your figures again WILL......but I bet you are in the club, go get your benefits... and most of the white people who can actually get welfare just lost their job you know the one they have had for 20 years......at least we actually need the help, and don't sponge off the government like BLACK people DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Silly me.
I'm am disappointed.
I used to think that Mel was such a sincere Catholic (I'm not Catholic..that's not the point), a family man with solid values, honorable and credible. Perhaps one of the exceptions to the rule in LA.
Come to learn he is not only a sneaky man, but also a liar, a racist, a misoginist, an ego with a head that is about to explode...and just a down-right silly man with an over-inflated sense of his own worth.
I used to think he was such a good-looking man.
Now...not so much.

Will never know what these women see in Gibson. To me he is a Class A Creep. The homeliest man ever and a short -hit to boot.

I am very very happy for Robyn, I beleive she should have gotten much more. If he so unfaithful to his family Robyn and his seven children the he should pay, money is not enough for the hurt he caused them. And 28 years of her life?? she never expected this kind of waste of her youth and life, never expected to look after seven children while the father is having children from another whore, if he is rich enough to look after finanacially eight children then most of his money should go to the real Gibsons first.

Curious, how much of that money she receives does the IRS claw back?

AFTER 28 YEARS OF MARRIGE, SHE DEFINITELY IS DUE HALF OF MEL'S FORTUNE, UNLIKE THE WHORES.THAT GET INVOLVED FOR A SHORT TIME, HAVE A WHORE BABY, AND COLLECT AN EXTREMELY, LARGE, AMOUNT OF MONEY, SHORT TERM, AND LONG TERM.

She supported him through thick and thin for TWENTY-EIGHT years, bearing and helping him raise SEVEN children. Therefore, I have no problem with the settlement at all. I hope this and what he paid to the crazy Russian lady teaches him to keep his pants closed.
