He's already sold his New York mansion for millions less than the asking price and has put Malibu home, Lavender Hill Farm, on the market.
Sources say that the idea came from his ex-wife Robyn since she's defended him against the abuse allegations made by his former girlfriend and baby momma Oksana Grigorieva. "She is shocked and furious at this woman’s lies and their seven children are shocked" and she has "persuaded him…to get away from Hollywood and find peace on his ranch and she will go with him along with some of the children."
A friend of Oksana says that she "has done nothing but tell the truth."
Whether or not she's telling the truth, we are all painfully aware that Mel has taken a leap into crazy town. Escaping the U.S. and the spotlight is probably the best decision he's ever made.
We say, don't let the door hit you on the way out, Mel!
