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.

It may be some time before the L.A. District Attorney's office charges either Mel Gibson or Oksana Grigorieva with domestic abuse or extortion, respectively.

That's if charges are filed at all. In the meantime, her lawyers want to grill Mel's ex-wife about claims that the actor was never violent during their marriage.

Team Oksana is poised to subpoena Robyn Moore Gibson to appear before a deposition. Mel left Robyn around the same time he got together with Oksana.

Shortly after news of Mel's divorce hit, Oksana Grigorieva became pregnant. She and Mel are also battling for custody of daughter Lucia, now nine months.

Oksana has told police that Mel once admitted hurling a TV at Robyn Gibson, and claims that she personally witnessed him hit his youngest son, Tommy.

Oksana Grigorieva would like a word with Robyn Gibson - under oath.

Robyn Gibson came to Mel's defense earlier this summer with a sworn affidavit submitted to the court stating Mel was never once abusive to her or his kids.

"Mel never engaged in physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during, or after our marriage," Robyn reportedly told the judge overseeing the case.

Robyn's support was surprising in the wake of how their marriage ended, and the leak of Mel's phone meltdowns, leading some to question her motivation.

She and Mel have seven children, six of whom are adults. Oksana's attorneys want her to testify under penalty of perjury that he never abused anyone.

The TV incident is likely to be brought up if Robyn testifies. No word if Grigorieva's lawyers will also track down Violet Kowal, Mel's other alleged mistress.

Oksana Grigorieva continues to make shocking allegations against Mel Gibson, telling law enforcement that he hit his son and hurled a TV at his wife.

The actor's ex-girlfriend says she personally witnessed him hitting his youngest son, Tommy, and that Mel personally admitted the TV incident to her.

Mel's soon-to-be-ex-wife, Robyn Gibson, submitted a sworn affidavit to the court stating Mel was not abusive to her or his children once in 28 years.

But Oksana Grigorieva, who claims Mel punched her twice and that she feared for her life and that of their baby daughter Lucia, says otherwise.

The Russian singer and pianist alleges that Mel hit Tommy in the head while at a hockey game at L.A.'s Staples Center two-and-a-half-years ago.

“Oksana told authorities about Mel’s ‘angry outbursts’ toward his own family and friends,” said a source familiar with the Mel Gibson investigation.

Another disturbing day in the Mel-Oksana saga.

“She said that Mel, in her presence, hit Tommy, in the head, while they were in a box watching a hockey game. She said Tommy started crying and whimpered for the rest of the game, choosing to sit by himself, away from his father.”

Tommy was nine at the time. He is one of Mel’s seven children with Robyn, whom he split from in 2009. He got Oksana pregnant around that time.

As for the alleged attack on Robyn, a Russian newspaper quotes Oksana:

“Mel said several times how he threw a TV into her (Robyn) once when they were arguing. Thank god he missed and the TV fell out a second story window.”

Yes ... thank God he hurled a television set but happened to miss Robyn and it sailed through the window. Is there any way that's even remotely true? Would Robyn really forget that and/or lie under penalty of perjury if so?

This doesn't mean it's a lie that Mel abused Oksana, or that he doesn't need serious psychiatric help. Those rants prove as much. But it seems as if the deluge of tall tales and shady actions from her camp only make her case less credible.

Mel Gibson is not only in a nasty fight with Oksana Grigorieva over custody of their baby daughter, he's facing a domestic violence investigation and major fallout from her set of rage-filled, possibly career-ending leaked phone tapes.

But he still has his family.

"He has a good support system in his friends and family," a friend tells People adding that his seven kids are "absolutely" standing by their father.

Gibson regularly speaks to his soon-to-be-ex wife, Robyn, with whom he split in April 2009, and has seven children from a nearly 30-year union.

It was Robyn Gibson who came to his defense last week, filing an affidavit swearing he was never once abusive during their entire time together.

Mel and Robyn

Mel has allies in Robyn Gibson and their seven kids.

According to a source, it was her idea: "Mel didn't ask Robyn for the affidavit in which she says that he never engaged in any physical abuse towards her."

"Robyn just felt that enough is enough ... She still values her marriage to Mel and is sick of [how the press portrays] Mel as a heartless, abusive monster."

A new Mel Gibson tape leaked on Tuesday was perhaps the most damning of the six released to date, as he appeared to admit a violent outburst.

But despite what you hear on the tapes, Robyn is standing by the actor, who she calls an amazing father. The source said, "she is still protective of him."

A Gibson family source says that the actor's family has long seen Oksana Grigorieva, who Mel split with earlier this year, as a calculating person.

“She pushed him over the edge," the source says. "While they do think he needs help for his anger issues, Mel's family is supportive of him."

Thoughts?

Mel Gibson may have some serious issues, but his soon-to-be ex-wife Robyn says he is a terrific father to their seven children and was never abusive.

In a written, sworn declaration to the courts defending him from allegations of domestic violence by new girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, Robyn states:

'Sana

"Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage ... Mel was a wonderful and loving father."

During their 28 years of marriage (she filed for divorce last year, around the time Mel began seeing Oksana), Robyn says he was never violent.

A stark contrast from the raving madman heard on the Mel Gibson tapes recorded by Oksana Grigorieva this week - tapes police are looking into.

Mel and Robyn Gibson married nearly three decades ago.

Detectives are currently investigating whether Mel abused Oksana, with whom he is in an ugly custody dispute over their baby daughter, Lucia.

They are examining the authenticity of the recordings, according to officials, following claims by Gibson's attorneys of editing and tampering.

In the most recent Mel Gibson rant to leak online (there are five in all), Grigorieva calls the actor, who is ranging mad, the worst father ever.

His wife apparently would take issue with that.

It's unclear if Mel will face criminal charges for the abuse Oksana alleges, but the well-respected Robyn could ultimately be a strong ally of his.

More details to come as the story develops ...
