Celebrity gossip outlets have judged Mel Gibson harshly over the years.

It's hard not to when the actor drove drunk, insulted Jewish people and referred to a police officer as "sugar tits."


But might the Internet be too swept up in the admission of Oksana Pochepa - pictured, a 24-year old Russian singer who says she's been carrying on a relationship with the actor - to consider one important fact:

Gibson and wife Robyn have been separated for almost three years. While divorce proceedings just got underway this week, the marriage has been over for a long time.

Does this get the Oscar-winner off the hook for banging a pop star that's younger than his daughter? Perhaps Gibson, a dedicated Catholic, figures he was already headed to Hell for his impending divorce... so why not get some young nookie in the meantime?

You tell us! Weigh in now: Was Mel Gibson wrong for sleeping with Oksana Pochepa?

Forget the controversy stirred up by Passion of the Christ.

Sounds like Mel Gibson has to worry about the passion of Oksana Pochepa!

Good Ol' Crazy Mel

In an interview with Great Britain's The Sun, the 24-year old Russian pop singer says she's been enjoying a relationship with the actor for months. And it sounds like more than just a fling.

"This is serious and I hope that our union will be real and strong and long-lasting," Pochepa told the newspaper yesterday.

The singer met Gibson in August 2008 when she was hired to compose a song for his upcoming movie, Edge of Darkness.

A source on the Massachusetts set told Us Weekly that the pair would often hang out together in Gibson's trailer... if you know what we mean! (Editor's note: that's actually all we mean by that statement. But it's not hard to imagine what they were doing in there.)

In Gibson's defense, insiders have said he and wife Robyn - who filed for divorce this week - have been separated for three years. But that makes this story far less juicy.

Mel Gibson possesses more money than disparaging remarks against Jews.

But the actor's personal fortune, estimated at close to $1 billion, will take a major hit, now that long-time wife Robyn Moore has filed for divorce.

"This could easily be one of the biggest divorce settlements in Hollywood history," said Los Angeles family lawyer Lynn Soodik, who's not involved with the case. "Any attorney would advise her to take half."

Good Ol' Crazy Mel

Gibson's estimated assets include:

  • Over $600 million grossed by The Passion of the Christ;
  • $100-plus million in real estate investments around the globe;
  • $75 million for film and TV projects on which Gibson served as executive producer. 

Robyn could also have rights to any of Gibson's future earnings.

Still, friends say the pair will go through the proceedings in an amicable, respectful manner.

"This divorce will probably reach a settlement in a matter of months," Soodik said. "It likely won't be messy since there's enough money to go around."

What took so long?!?

Almost three years after Mel Gibson drove drunk, insulted Jewish people and referred to a cop as "sugar tits," the actor's wife has filed for divorce.

Mel n' Oksana Picture

According to TMZ, Robyn Moore filed legal papers to divorce Gibson, her husband of 28 years, last Thursday. She cited "irreconcilable differences" in the document.

The couple were married in 1980, long before Gibson amassed a fortune estimated at $900 million back in 2006. There's no prenuptial agreement, meaning he stands to lose up to half his earnings.

Ouch. That could hurt Mel more than any comparison to former dictator Saddam Hussein.

Robyn is seeking custory of 10-year old son Tom, along with spousal support and attorneys fees.

** UPDATE: A source confirmed to People that Gibson and Moore have actually been separated for three years. This development simply makes it legal.

On Wednesday, we learned that Britney Spears' latest album, Circus, has topped the charts - and her strange friend Mel Gibson couldn't be more proud.

"She's doing great," good ol' Mel told Us Weekly at the Ninth Annual Global Green Sustainable Design Awards in NYC on Wednesday. "She's a sweet girl."

Mel Gibson, who has helped celebrities with sobriety issues over the years (and gone through some interesting incidents himself), privately reached out to Britney Spears - they're former neighbors in Malibu, Calif. - earlier this year.

After her much-publicized public meltdowns, Brit was taken under the wing of Mel and his wife, Robin, and not as any sort of PR stunt, which is pretty cool.

The star's devoted fans may recall that Britney and her father, Jamie Spears, vacationed with the actor and his wife at his ranch in Costa Rica back in May.

Gibson and Spears were also seen at a Beverly Hills cigar bar in June. On an unrelated note, here's Britney - whose Christmas greetings we brought you earlier on this day - singing that timeless holiday classic, "Silent Night," on Ellen ...

Former neighbors and current pals Britney Spears and Mel Gibson spend some more time together Tuesday - at an exclusive Beverly Hills cigar club.

The singer and the actor-filmmaker met in what was considered more of an ongoing guidance session than a business meeting, sources say.

Dress Her Up

Mel Gibson and his wife Robin have taken Britney Spears under their wing since her meltdowns earlier this year, meeting with her regularly.

At the posh Havana Club, a tired-looking Spears arrived with her personal assistant, Brett and a bodyguard to meet Mel around 7:30.

"She looked pretty in her new Capri jeans a blue blouse, white shoes and a brown bag," said a celebrity gossip photographer on the scene.

Troubled stars Britney Spears and Mel Gibson have forged a friendship.

Britney was described as quiet and serious - by contrast, an upbeat Mel Gibson walked in holding a bag up to his face and saying "okay, you got me" as celebrity news photographers crowded around to snap his picture.

Once neighbors in Malibu (Spears now lives in Studio City), Britney and Mel began spending time together in March. In May, Gibson and his wife, and Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears, vacationed together in Costa Rica.

According to celeb news sources, Britney Spears and Mel Gibson are headed to Costa Rica, where they will enjoy a hot vacation together!

Hot, in the literal sense. It's the tropics!

Britney Takes Kids Shopping

There's nothing salacious about the trip, however. The singer's father, Jamie Spears, and Gibson's wife, Robin, will also be there.

"They're just going away for a few days to relax," says a source.

The group plans to stay at the home the Gibsons own in Costa Rica, and are planning on returning to California early next week.

Britney Spears and Mel Gibson have more in common than fame and vehicular troubles - they're going on vacation to Costa Rica together!

The unlikely pair were first spotted together back in mid-March when they dined at Russian restaurant Romanov in Studio City, Ca.

Just another weekend in the life of Britney Spears.

On Saturday, the troubled singer started the day with a visit from her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, ages 2 and 1, and ended the evening at a Russian restaurant for a dinner meeting with ... Mel Gibson!

Once neighbors in an exclusive Malibu community, Britney and Mel were part of a two-hour group dinner at the Romanov restaurant in Studio City.

"It was exciting to have both of them here together," says one restaurant source. "We heard they hit it off and that Britney seemed excited."

Clad in jeans, a green top and boots and chewing gum, a pleasant and upbeat Britney Spears arrived at the Romanov restaurant with her friend Victoria.

Mel Gibson, joined by a few friends, soon met them in the restaurant's private dining room, which features a 24-karat gold leaf ceiling.

For two hours the group dined on filet mignon and Russian specialties, and drank water and soft drinks. No booze for Britney Spears or Mel Gibson!

Leaving the restaurant for her Studio City home around 8:15, Spears "looked happy," says an observer, "so it seems the meeting was a success."

Why exactly did Spears and Gibson meet up? TMZ says Mel, his wife Robin and their kids reached out and began seeing Britney during her darkest days.

Robin and Mel Gibson feel like they know how tough it is to live in a fishbowl and they think they can help Spears. There have been private dinners in which Mel, Robin and their kids have hooked up with Britney to offer support.

At Romanov's last night, Mel and Britney did not walk in or out together - Gibson, unlike most other celebrities, apparently isn't into splashing his good deeds in the media. Here's a video of them courtesy of Hollywood TV...

Mel Gibson's DUI nightmare that began in July of 2006 is now over.

Legally, that is. A judge ruled that although the actor still has 18 months of probation remaining, he has completed the requirements of his plea.

The judge told Mel Gibson "Now you're on our own," adding "This will be the most difficult time for you, but you're well on your way to success."

The judge added there was no need for future progress reports.

In one of the most amazing celebrity news stories in recent memory, Mel Gibson went off on an irate anti-Semitic rant, harassed a female cop, and tried to break stuff during an arrest in Malibu for DUI in July 2006.

He pleaded no contest in August 2006 to misdemeanor of driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher and agreed to three years probation, to attend one year of AA meetings and to pay a fine and restitution.

Mel Gibson mug shotHe may be an egomaniac and anti-Semitic loon with a bad driving record - not to mention a penchant for blowing his top.

But in the spirit of rehabilitation and second chances, a Malibu, Calif., judge has just given Mel Gibson two thumbs up!

Apparently, the star of The Passion of the Christ, Lethal Weapon, Signs and many other films is making good progress following his embarrassing DUI arrest in the summer of 2006.

TMZ was in the courtroom for Mel Gibson's progress hearing this morning, and while Mel was a no-show (Gibson is not required to be there), his lawyer, Blair Berk, was on hand.

Berk filed paperwork today proving that Mel Gibson completed four and a half months of AA meetings and has paid all fines resulting from the drunken tirade and arrest.

No word on whether he has seen Britney Spears at any meetings.

The judge announced that Mel's attendance at AA meetings is now voluntary, and that Mel must appear at the next hearing date, scheduled for February 15.

Check out our gallery of celebrity mug shots. It's a photo collection that has grown a lot in the last 14 months, but Mel's remains one of the best.
