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.
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.
