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.

Stew, you do not know what you are writing about. THe woman was with him for 28 years, raised 7 children with him, was his main advicer. Was with him before he was a well known actor. She put up with his drunker behavior for years. Obviously you are confusing her with the latest woman he is with. If not I feel sorry for the women in your life.

Sorry for lashing out in anger, but there's always a Jack ass or two who wants to take it there....so please leave race out of this discussion ...esp since all parties in this story share the same one.

Fo' sho'....Robyn deserves at least half of Mel's money. Because it's Mel's fault they are divorcing in the first place. Remember? Mel broke the marriage vows by cheating on Robyn. Mel not only cheated on Robyn, but he is in part responsible for bringing a little bastard into the world to boot. He acted as though the seven children he had with Robyn wasn't enough. He caused Robyn enough humiliation. And Robyn probably spent the greater majority of time raising their kids while Mel was footloose and fancy free in the glamorous land of Holly-weird. So at the very least, Mel should foot the divorce settlement by half of his earnings. Pay the piper, Mel. No one told you to go out and play the ho'.

Robyn deserves that and more, they had seven children together and she helped him when he was just starting. She has given him a lot of support over the years and they have three grandchildren.
Mel should have never divorced her.

With that kind of incentive, it is easier to divorce than remain married.

Resolved: Let's do as the blacks do, just impregnate them and let the state pay for the spawn.

Someone tell me what that woman did to contribute to the accumulation of $850 mill.? Seems every time I opened a newspaper she was up to something detrimental to the marriage. Haven't been there in awhile but is a prostitute nowadays worth $425 mill.?
