Mel Gibson finalizes his divorce
The actor Mel Gibson and Robyn has formally divorced his wife for 31 years, mother of seven sons and will receive half of the estate accumulated by the player, valued at about 1,000 million dollars, U.S. media reported Wednesday.
The divorce was made official on Friday in a court in Los Angeles, though Mel, 55, and Robyn, who got married in 1980 before the actor reached popularity and fortune, were separated since 2006.
With no prenuptial agreement, divorce is the equal division of assets accumulated by the actor, according to California law.
The fortune of the artist, director and producer of films like "The Passion of the Christ" (2004) and "Apocalypto" (2006), around 1,000 million dollars in revenue for their work and the properties it owns.
Therefore, his divorce from Robyn is considered the most expensive in Hollywood history, according to People magazine.
The couple was estranged after the arrest of Mel in 2006 for drunk driving and Robyn cited "irreconcilable differences" as grounds for its decision to trigger separate.
The Oscar-winning "Braveheart" (1995), who was born in the United States but moved to Australia at age 12, also had a relationship with Russian Robyn Oksana Grigorieva, Lucia’s mother, her infant daughter.
Grigorieva denounced an alleged assault of Gibson in January 2010. The actor admitted having slapped to avoid being hurt while discussing his daughter.
After months of litigation in court last August, the two reached an agreement to have joint custody of the child and that Grigorieva received $ 750,000 over the next five years.
Last year, amid clashes between Gibson and Grigorieva, Robyn came out in defense of the actor and said that during his marriage he never suffered physical abuse of any kind.
