LOS ANGELES - Court records show Mel Gibson's wife has filed for divorce after 28 years of marriage.

Robyn Gibson filed the petition in Los Angeles , citing irreconcilable differences .

The petition doesn't give any details about the split. Robyn Gibson is seeking jewelry and some other property, and has suggested joint custody for their 9-year-old son.

The records show that the couple were married in June 1980.

An e-mail message sent to Gibson's publicist Monday wasn't immediately returned.

Translation: Mel has finally gone completely and irretrievably batshit insane.

Well, that guy's life seems to be completely in the toilet now.

I mean, except for being exceedingly rich and famous. Although a lot of the famous isn't the good kind anymore.

If she goes after him , this will EASILY be the most expensive divorce settlement ever. I mean, dude made like 600 mil from the Passion alone, and he financed that whole project himself, so every penny that came back was his.

Mad Max 4 is already in production: It's Mad Max: Fury Road. I've heard there were delays, and that Gibson is too old to be the lead, but that's about it...

I guess saying his life is over is all open to debate based on your perspective. If he was in an unhappy marriage, then his life is starting anew.

The only problems I see him having are with his fundamentalist Catholic church and them accepting a divorce....that will be interesting.


Anyway, all his craziness aside, I hope the dude keeps making movies...they entertain the hell out of me.

i think they said he is worth somewhere around 900 million...and they got married before he was famous, so she will be a rich woman for the rest of her life. As far as how i feel about his divorce, i think Mel said it best in one of his movies............................................ .................................................. .................................................. ... FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !! :chuckle:

If he's worth 900, she'll get 450.
He better get this over before Mad Max 4, because that's gonna make a lot of money too...

Not sure I feel too bad for Mel...if he is worth 900 mil, then having 550 left isn't too shabby. Couple more self financed movies should get him back...

I wonder who'll get the Island they bought in Fiji?

Maybe they'll split that like a time share?
