Mel's Ex Supports Him In Court

| Filed under: Legal MattersMel Gibson

wenn5425355.jpg

In the midst of his abusive rants going public, Mel Gibson's ex wife Robyn wrote a declaration that he never laid a hand on her or the children during their 28 year marriage.

"Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage," she writes. "Mel was a wonderful and loving father."

The declaration will be submitted to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department when Mel's lawyers present their evidence next week.

Wonder what the reason for the divorce was!

    Well of course she is going to day that, she get's 50 million a year from him !!
    Damn Russian bitch used him for the cash!!!



  2. 2

    That certainly says ALOT and supports all of you who said that Oskana baited him.



  3. 3

    I believe her, she has nothing to gain or lose.



  4. 4

    I think the divorce was because he cheated.



  5. 5

    Uhmmm..They divorced because he was cheating on he with Aksana…or however you spell it…



  6. 6

    I'll bet he never made any threatening phone calls to her, either.



  7. 7

    true, true,……………. after gertting 450 million i would definitely defend him



  8. 8

    WOW MS GIBSON. She's well respected. Im starting to teeder here. We cant forget that some people will do anything for money, she was his mistress. I JUST DONT KNOW.



  9. 9

    Oh please! She hasn't gotten the final monetary divorce settlement yet, she knows that if Oksana proves the abuse that Mel is on the hook for millions, she is trying to protect her settlement $. Smart of her to do that.

    She claims there was no abuse during the marriage, but he attacked those cops based on their race and gender while he was still married to her…so nice try.



  10. 10

    I would think the reason was that fat lipped whore getting herself pregnant on purpose.



  11. 11

    Because SURELY the only reason people break up is if they're being beaten on a semi-regular basis.

    I would imagine since she owns half of his production company it's in her best financial interest to be on Mel's side. Besides it seems that Mel likes to pick on people that he perceives that are weaker than him. Robin being well respected in Hollywood would not classify as weaker than him. A Russian woman who has previously had a child with another actor who would have no credibility if she made a complaint because people would just call her a golddigger who was trying to get money out Mel. Oh wait that is what happened. Unfortunately for Mel he forgot that Russians are notoriously vengeful when wronged. I bet that she started taping him after the first time he hit her and she waited until it got so bad that she actually feared for her life before releasing the tapes. Evil and cunning? Yes. Any other way for her to beat him in court and keep her child? Unlikely.
    And on the up side she had completely destroyed him in every way possible.
    I figure he's lucky she didn't wait for him fall asleep, cut off his cock and ball and make him eat them.
    Team Golddigger!

    "Wonder what the reason for the divorce was!"

    um, infidelity perhaps?



  14. 14

    why is it often so difficult to read comments on here?
    Nothing comes up



  15. 15

    let's see…his wife of 28 years, mother of his 7 children who didn't cheat on MEL and then leave him…or maybe the Russian that mysteriously gets pregnant in a rather convenient time but somehow didn't make it a year after the keep a man baby was born…you get the woman that paid her dues, was with mel when he was poor and rich, and then you have Oksana…two very different situations…two very different women…and two very different ways to be treated by mel…



  16. 16

    Re: crickets – It may also be because he doesn't believe in wearing a condom.



  17. 17

    Because he was a drunk! Too bad they couldn't work it out though.



  18. 18

    it was that he cheated on his wife and decided to go on with his misstress

  19. TS65 says – reply to this


    19

    I find it interesting exactly how her comment was worded… it's all about HOW you say things.

    "Mel never engaged in any phusical abuse" (but he was an emotional/psychological abusive bastard!)

    "Mel was a wonderful and loving father." (but he sucked as a husband and mate!)



  20. 20

    i know i am probably the only person that feels this way… i kind of pity him. she seems a bit of an opportunist. there is no excuse for some of his actions but she must have really hurt him and f'd him over for him to react this way. it is such a personal matter. they are the only ones who know what is going on. people say really horrible things when they are super upset. when you get some one like mel who has a vicious temper… you are going to get mean retaliation. such personal phone calls that should not have been leaked. calls for authorities and police only. i do not believe she did not leak this. cha CHING!!! scorned women are evil… dont get me wrong… not defending him, i just dont think she is an angel. a great business women…? sure



  21. 21

    Sadly, I do not believe her. Has ex-wife Robyn already received her part of the divorce settlement? To get him out of her life, I would lie too. Mel has had a reputation of angry fits and bullying since the 80's. I don't believe for a second that this was the first time he has strayed.



  22. 22

    Re: Spindoc – Exactly !!! : )

  23. Hun says – reply to this


    23

    for his childrens sake.



  24. 24

    What about emotional abuse? He left his wife without divorcing her to have an affair and child with the woman he is now fighting with.



  25. 25

    YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    EAT SHIT, PEREZ. This has GOT to be killing you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  26. 26

    No matter Robyn's reason (btw, I believe her), it's BIG!

    Time for Perez to blow Mel…NOW! Joy Behar, too! ROFLMFAO!



  27. 27

    If Robyn were to side with Oksana, that would be like Jennifer Aniston siding with Angelina "homewrecker" Jolie if Brad was accused of punching her. Jenn would be all, "Bitch had it coming." LOL! Of course Robyn's not going to side with the other woman. And she has lots of green reasons not to as well. Whatever money Oksana walks away with is her and Mel's kids inheritance. You bet she's going to try and protect that.

    Robyn Gibson probably got a HUGE $$$$$ payment as part of the divorce IF she swore under oath not to divulge any of Mel's dirty little habits. She's not willing to forfeit any of that money by doing a "tell all" about her marriage to this fiend. It's hard to believe Mel hid his horrific temper and psychotic behavior from her for all those years…



  29. 29

    So…. if Mel loses it all (his career, his money, his mind) how will he continue to pay his ex-wife what he owes her? Perhaps she too is financially motivated. If Mel loses it all, so does she. Hmmmmmmm



  30. 30

    Robyn did not have to write that letter. She was granted her settlement in court and if it is not all paid out yet, he still has to pay. and it is STUPID OF MARIO/PEREZ TO ASK WHY DID THEY GET A DIVORCE THEN. Hey Mario, do you think marriages end because the husband abuses the woman? Alot end because people simply fall out of love. The fact that she said that he NEVER PHYSICALLY ABUSED HER, but did not say emotionally or psychologically, MIGHT SAY ALOT. MIGHT. That might have been all that was asked of her. Then again, she might have felt that he did emotionally abused her, cheated on her, etc. and she would not put it on the letter. She did put down he was a loving father and there has NEVER BEEN ANY ACCUSATIONS OF CHILD ABUSE against him with his 7 children. That says alot. Unless he has a brain tumor, why would he start doing this all of a sudden? Oksana wants his money and did not know she was dealing with a long time alcoholic.



  31. 31

    this Oksana is bad news. If only all of our worst moments were caught on tape. His statements were made during emotional distress in a private conversation - she knew she was taping him and knew to come off as good as possible. We all say things in anger, and we've all met people who bring out the worst in us. It happens. Most of us don't have people recording it though. This woman is toxic and too bad Mel got involved.



  32. 32

    The reason for the divorce was infidelity dumbass. How could any decent gossip blogger not know that? You've proven once again how little you know about celebrities. Only a fool would believe anything you post here.



  33. 33

    doesn't prove anything, but at least it doesn't add fuel to the fire.
    if oj's first wife says he never hit her, it doesn't really mean much.



  34. 34

    I think Oskana found his button and enjoys pushing it, when listening to her recordings of him she remains calm which makes me think she set up the calls after pissing him off, if everyone of us got recorded at our worst, we would all be kid less/pet less or have something to lose. Yes, he sounded like an ass but there is more to their private life that we all have no idea about. She may act like she wants nothing, but she will get something. Just my opinion, not trying to argue.



  35. 35

    for a gossip maven, you have a poor memory. Oksana was the reason for the divorce.



  36. 36

    Any woman that stayed married to that freak for 28 years is out of her mind. He is a complete psycho!!



  37. 37

    Re: crickets – Getting HERSELF pregnant on purpose???? Are you a fucking retard???? A woman cannot get herself pregnant unless she does artificial insemination u idiot. If Mel didn't want to have a baby with her he should have used protection! Of course it's all her fault and he had no part in it??? Ur a fucktard!!!



  38. 38

    Actually it would behoove Robyn to say he was abusive… cha-ching for her. Especially when it comes to alimony and such. She would get MORE money for saying he was abusive in the eyes of a judge.



  39. 39

    Wonder what the reason for the divorce was!

    I'm pretty sure the answer to that is Oxsana.



  40. 40

    Sorry, but you don't divorce a wonderful and loving person.



  41. 41

    LOL, THAT ONLY SAYS HE DIDNT PHYSICALLY HURT HER OR THE KIDS BUT DOES NOT INCLUDE VERBAL ABUSE OR ANYTHING ELSE!! ROBYN HERSELF SAID MEL HAS A BAD TEMPER AND FREAKISH BEHAVIOR. READ BETWEEN THE LINES FAT BOY!!



  42. 42

    For some reason, I'm getting a bad feeling about this Oksana woman and my gut feeling is hardly ever wrong. While Mel did say some unacceptable and bad things, I really get the feeling Oksana's not all innocent and the victim she's making herself out to be. I wouldn't be surprised if she was using Mel to ride on his fame and wealth wagon. That said, if Mel would of never left his wife, maybe he wouldn't be in the boat he's in now. If he cheated on his wife, well, there's usually consequences to cheating on your wife. I'm not excusing any of his behavior, but I'm just saying I think something smells fishy about Oksana as well.



  43. 43

    If Oksanas' reason for taping her conversation with Mel is that she is scared for her life how long did she tape her conversation with Mel Gibson?. How many months and why did she decide to release the tapes to the media now ? Sounds very fishy. She really provoked Mel Gibson in all of their conversation and she sounded so cool and collected. She did not sound like she was scared for her life she sounded like she was egging Mel Gibson to say more outrageous things. This woman is very slimy. This dentist who was supposed to fix her teeth might be her accomplish and her lover



  44. 44

    "Mel was a wonderful and loving father."

    Maybe is but that "officalial" statement says nothing about his qualities as a husband. That in itself speaks VOLUMES!



  45. 45

    This is sad. I don't care how much she backs him. His career is over. He has said too much.



  46. 46

    i'm with team mel. she's a gold diggin' ho.



  47. 47

    Reason for divorce? Russian Barbie - the same one who has edited the tapes to make her seem serene. What is cut out is how she provoked him to rant - how she pushed his buttons, probably screaming at him and then when he's worked up she presses the tape button and she becomes this serene Madonna. How can anyone believe this home wrecker who spawned another celebrity child for money and then when the cash flow STOPS she uses blackmail. Mel has no excuse for his obscene rants but this whole set up stinks.



  48. 48

    Mel's ex has vaginal warts the size of Sam Walton's dead left testicle, which is where she got them.



  49. 49

    Just because he didn't do anything to her, doesn't mean it's Oksana's fault…
    You guys are fucking idiots.



  50. 50

    Ummmm….what are the chances that their marriage was just OVER. I mean, seriously people. You can only stay with someone so long that completely has such an odd take on the world, is an alcoholic and has such a bad public image. At some point, you would just want OUT. God knows he gave her all those children, and they raised them together, but at some point, you would have to ask - what's in it for me? He's contributed a lot to the entertainment world, but you know, he can't be an easy guy to be married to.

    I love mel and I love his soon to be ex wife, she is a good woman and I am glad she is courageous and came to mels defense. oxana you should be ashamed of yourself and you should be deported, you are worse than those russian spies.



  52. 52

    if you listened carefully to his ravings he said he divorced his first wife because they were not 'spiritually' on the same level.

    53

    What I don't understand is why women are always so vilified when they go after a man with money. Men go after women with big tits, or hot bodies, or who are models, all this for gratification of their egos. So why is that alright? Hell most rich men go after girls that they would never have been able to score if they didn't have bank. They know what the girl finds attractive about them, and seem to be okay with it when they pick them up. If you date someone purely for their outer beauty why is it surprising when that person isn't dating you for your inner beauty.

    Also why are women vilified for dating rich men but the reverse isn't true?

    Madonna's little model boyfriend isn't called a gold digger. Nope you guys vilify her for dating someone younger.



  54. 54

    team Mel.

    I trust is wife becaquse she is a lady. That is the way to be. defending the father of her kids.

    Just the opposite of the russian one.



  55. 55

    if shes smart, that little declaration coust him a pretty penny.. hes a douche. hope he gets locked away for a long time.,



  56. 56

    eat that perez! that many kids with his first wife and 28 years at that and NO physical abuse EVER REPORTED! stop inciting such anger and hatred towards Mel until you ACTUALLY KNOW ALL THE FACTS!! what you're doing right now makes you a biased piece of paparazzi garbage



  57. 57

    and am i the only person in the world who knows that Mel and his ex-wife Robin were separated for 3 YEARS before the divorce went through? don't think that exactly counts as cheating…guess perez isn't the only one who needs to keep his mouth shut until ALL researching has been done



  58. 58

    Experts just said on larry king live that that shit he said was all botched together in a recording done by professionals.



  59. 59

    divorced… because he cheated on her… you f*cktard.



  60. 60

    I believe her. It supports what I have been saying.
    This Oksana was out for money full stop!
    We don't even know if thee tapes are real.
    Even her dentist is suspicious, she has been friends with him for 12 years!!!



  61. 61

    Re: Jaded So because one group does something stupid, it excuses another group? Women dating for money is disgusting. Men dating women for money is disgusting. Yes, some people have said guys who dated Madonna (like Guy what'shisface) were gold diggers. Yes, it's just as stupid to date for tits. But what's worse, is hypocrites like you that excuse one bad behavior because someone else is doing something else bad in life. Red Herring fail.



  62. 62

    While it may be true, people change and Mel has now entered the ranks of men who do hit women and he must be stopped as he is a very dangerous man.



  63. 63

    Oksana's recorded phone calls of Mel, sounds like SHE is reading a SCRIPT!!!!!!
    SET UP MEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  64. 64

    if you listened carefully to his ravings he said he divorced his first wife because they were not 'spiritually' on the same level.

    Re: Shewolf

    It's the age old, "My wife doesn't understand me." Yeah, cuz' men never say that. Did Mel honestly think he was going to be spiritually in tune with a woman who was helping him violate all the tenets of his faith?

    Still not buying that the tapes were altered by Oksana but who knows how much of the phone conversations we are being allowed to hear…but this is what the courts are for, as technically these tapes should have never been released to the media to begin with.

    Crazy Mel really should consider this rock bottom and go to rehab, dry out, and start hitting AA meetings. He's finished as an actor(more because of his age, he's not the best of actors and because of this latest incident)but I think as a producer/director he still has potential. He's a very visual director and pays such attention to detail. He's definitely a better director than he is an actor, that's for sure.

    Oksana needs to get a job and quit depending on men, especially one that is clearly not on meds for a Bi Polar disorder and is self medicating with ALCOHOL. If she's not in it for the long haul and isn't willing to commit to Mel for better or for worse, then it is not reasonable for her to continue living in Mel's house and exposing her children to the discord.



  65. 65

    They could have divorced because of the simple fact he was cheating on her with Oksana. It really could be that simple. She doesnt owe him a favor for alimony or anything since she would have gotten that by law under California rules. I believe Gibson has a severe temper and problems but I am just not believing Oksana's whole story. There are too many holes, changes and I think people are blinded by the tapes and not paying attention to the real story. What kinda woman waits this long, specially after her daughter was supposedly involved, to report this? Its odd how all this just happens to come out when she needs cash. So, what? If she didnt need the cash she would just stay silent. I dont think she's broke either. Most likely she's getting support for her other kid and his father. I just think she wants more and believes she's entitled to it and will do anything to get it. I dont think she's this victim she is trying to put out there.



  66. 66

    The latest news is that the tapes were doctored with bits missing and bits edited. It would be interesting to hear the entire undoctored tape played in it's entirety. I think Grigorieva would not come out of that particularly well. For those who are saying Mel's ex-wife has vested interests in exonerating him; entertain the notion that maybe she's telling the truth and Grigorieva may be lying her head off in order to extort millions out of Gibson. You can't tell me it never occurred to you.



  67. 67

    Re: imsoregistered – Jaded is pointing out a hypocriticism, Your reading comprehension needs improvement. An observation is not advocacy.



  68. 68

    Re: TS65 – Very true…I was thinking the same thing. Look at the wording, very telling.



  69. 69

    Notice how she only says "physical abuse' and makes no mention of mental abuse. She also says that he was a wonderful and loving FATHER but makes no mention of what kind of husband he was.



  70. 70

    Re: forgetit2010 – Totally agree.

    Why was she not calling the police? If she was truly fearful for her life, her voice would not be as calm and collected as it is on these tapes. She sounds like someone very aware of her words, her tone and the reaction they will receive. Mel's statements are very inappropriate (to say the least), but i think there is much more to the abused woman/violent man story that meets the gossip sites.



  71. 71

    notice she made a point to say "he never engaged in PHYSICAL abuse" see the distinction???? the ahole is clearly still a mental abuser!!!! and she also said he was a loving and wonderful FATHER not HUSBAND. This man needs H-E-L-P… I smell celebrity rehab!!!



  72. 72

    Wow..like Robyn would admit otherwise….she's getting crazy money from him ..why would she want to rock his boat?



  73. 73

    Of course, she's not going to defend him as a father but not as a husband. They did have a good relationship for years but maybe he was a bad husband… because he was an alcoholic. Oksana is cashing in on a troubled man. Do I believe he was abusive? No. Do I believe he deserves to lose custody of his child? No. I believe that Oksana is using this baby for cash flow. The tapes sound like her comments were redubbed in a recording studio. She needs to quit ruining this man's life and get a real job… if she wants to spread her legs for cash, go walk the street.



  74. 74

    It isn't what she says that is interesting, it's what she doesn't say. She said he wasn't physically abusive, but she doesn't say he wasn't verbally or mentally abusive. "Mel was a wonderful and loving father", but not "Mel was a wonderful and loving husband". Spin spin spin!



  75. 75

    People divorce for all kinds of reasons………..Boredom, a longing to be single again, wondering if they are indeed your "soul mate", putting up with his stinky farts, just wanting a change……….oh wait that's my marriage. har har har



  76. 76

    whoa….the original sugar-tits
