If The Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger woke up last night out of a dead sleep drenched in cold sweat, now we know why: Mel Gibson is about to be single and…well, he was always ready to mingle, wasn’t he? According to TMZ, Mel Gibson’s divorce from wife Robyn Gibson will allegedly be finalized today; Robyn filed for divorce in April 2009. That’s right! In case you had forgotten that one pesky detail, Mel was in fact still married during every part of his public meltdown: the anti-Semitic rant, the relationship and child with mistress Oksana Grigorieva, and, perhaps worst of all, The Beaver.
Gibson’s ongoing legal battle with Grigorieva aside, we’re assuming his divorce took so long because the couple married in 1980 without a pre-nup; as such, the mother of seven of Mel’s eight children stands to earn a sizable chunk of well-earned change. So…anyone willing to deal with Mel Gibson as your girlfriend’s crazy-eyed ex? Gentlemen? Hmmm?

Over the weekend it was reported that Mel Gibson would be moving back to Australia, the country where he grew up. It makes sense for Mel to get back to the former penal colony of his childhood given his recent (potentially criminal) behavior. The report said that Mel was selling his California and New York homes and also claimed he’d be fleeing with his ex-wife Robyn, who wrote a letter to the court defending him. A source said “[Robyn]Ã‚Â has persuaded him that he needs to get away from Hollywood and find peace on his ranch, and she will go with him along with some of the children.” So would Mel really reconcile with his ex and move the hell away? Could it be that easy? Alas, no.
Gibson’s reps deny that he is moving, saying “There’s no truth” to the Australia rumor, which means that we’ll be stuck with the blow-job hungry actor for a while longer. Ã‚Â The saga of Mel and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is never-ending, and news today is that Oksana may be in trouble for doctoring images and the audio tapes we’ve all had the pleasure of hearing, and that her dentist may also be punished for not reporting the alleged abuse against her as well after she came to him with broken teeth.
Ugh. Maybe we all should move to Australia instead, to get away from these people.
Just the other day, we were wondering how Mel Gibson‘s ex-wife Robyn felt about the tapes the revealed an unflattering portrait of her former husband. Was Robyn ever on the receiving end of some of Mel’s harsh outbursts over the course of their thirty year marriage? Apparently not!
TMZ reports that Robyn actually filed a sworn declaration on behalf of Mel to be read in court. It says “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.” The statement will be admitted as evidence in Mel’s defense should a case be brought against him. Mel divorced Robyn while Oksana Grigorieva was already two months pregnant but despite that, it seems that Robyn still holds Mel in higher regard than Oksana. She says the charges of violence Oksana is claiming are “so beyond the truth.”
