Somehow we don’t think this has anything to do with Awards Season 2012. Mel Gibson‘s The Beaver has been pushed back yet again, with the long-shelved movie now set to be released in May. Reportedly, the change was to fit director Jodie Foster‘s schedule—she’s shooting the movie adaptation of Tony winner God Of Carnage—but odds were the studio didn’t mind putting this one off at all. Mel, too—the guy still has to settle a custody battle with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and, oh yeah, finally divorce his wife!
Yes, Mel managed to meet, knock up and violently break up with his mistress without actually finalizing his divorce from long-time wife Robyn Gibson. “I guess he’s too busy with the Oskana Grigorieva case to worry about the divorce from Robyn,” a source told Radar. “They keep getting continued, and they’re not expected to be back in court until at least April, now.” Due to the lack of a pre-nup, Robyn could wind up with a solid half of Mel’s alleged billion dollar fortune. Considering the other stuff he has to work out, Mel might just want to throw over the cash already. Personally, we wouldn’t miss $500 million if we still had another $500 million to play with.
