Is The Mel Gibson Divorce Going to Be The Most Expensive Hollywood Divorce Ever?

Mel_gibson Well, looks like another long term Hollywood couple has bitten the dust.  The odd thing is Mel and his wife have been separated for approximately three years, since just after his DUI arrest, but managed to keep it quiet, until his wife filed for divorce last week, after 30 years of marriage.

I have made no secret of my dislike for Mel.  So it doesn't exactly make me sad that he could lose half of his $1 billion empire.  Apparently, this union had no prenup.  Which I guess makes sense.  It's not like he went into this marriage a billionaire.  I can never figure the stars that get married after they make millions, without a prenup.

The couple released the following statement last week: "Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so."

His wife, Robyn Moore, cited irreconcilable differences, is seeking joint physical and legal custody over their minor child, Thomas, 9, according to court papers. She is also seeking spousal support and attorney's fees, and is asking the court to deny her husband any spousal support.  Um, does he need spousal support?

"This could easily be one of the biggest divorce settlements in Hollywood history," says Los Angeles family lawyer Lynn Soodik, who's not involved with the case. "Any attorney would advise her to take half."

Well, yeah, especially since it looks like Mel is shacking up.  Public records suggest Oksana Grigorieva, who is an ex of former James Bond star Timothy Dalton, has lived in a house linked to Mel.  The home, purchased in Sherman Oaks, Calif., in December 2008, has an ownership trust administered by the CFO of Mel Gibson's production company, Icon.  She is a singer signed to his record label, also named Icon.  Did he think no one would figure this out?  

While neither party have commented, Oksana certainly resembles the leggy brunette photographed with Mel on the Boston set of his upcoming film, Edge of Darkness, and seen frolicking in the surf with the star in Costa Rica.

Could this explain what prompted his wife to file for divorce now, after three years of separation?  And I'm sorry, but doesn't this taint his, I live my life by Jesus crap that he his been spouting for so long?  Isn't "though shall not commit adultery" one of the Ten Commandments?

This is why I hate learning about the personal lives of stars. I absolutely loved The Passion of the Christ. I thought it was well done and I still don't see the antisemitism, perhaps because I am not bent that way. I don't need to know that the director is an anti-Semite and typical penis driven male Hollywood type. This casts his vacation with Britney Spears in a whole new light.

Ironic that Mr. Uber-Catholic couldn't keep his marriage together? No, not at all.

Yeah, not very ironic. I'm kinda...half and half on Mel Gibson. I think mostly because I think he is extremely talented, but like most celebs, has some issues handeling his fame in certain ways. I do however, hate to hear when some of the longest marriages in Hollywood fall apart, especially when it's due to something like an affair, or his drinking issues.
Eh.
