Mel Gibson Loses HALF His Fortune To Ex-Wife In Divorce Settlement!

Sucks to be Mel Gibson!

The actor's divorce from ex-wife Robyn, with whom he was married for 30 years and had seven children, was finalized yesterday in El Lay, and she was rewarded with half of his estimated $850 million fortune, mainly due to them having no prenuptial agreement, which made her legally entitled to half of everything he earned during their time together!

Furthermore, she's already received two Malibu homes that previously belonged to him and are worth a combined $22.5 million, and she'll be entitled to half of every future residual check the actor receives for his film work for the rest of his life!

Well, this is how marriage works, we suppose - well, at least marriage without a pre-nup!

Merry Christmas to you this year, Robyn! Ha!

    i think that is fair….30 yrs of marriage and seven children…….



  2. 2

    30 years and 7 seven kids? Seems like a fair ruling to me.



  3. 3

    Well she had 7 kids and 30 years. Those are the best years of her life. She deserves every penny. Oh, and she never made waves.



  4. 4

    Oh dear, how oh how will they be able to live on $425 mil each? Are you kidding?! I do think she deserves every cent for being married to him.



  5. 5

    She had to put up with him for 30 years, gave him 7 children and he paid her back by cheating on her and publicly humiliating her with his nutjob behaviour. I'd say she deserves every penny. This couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!

    Dude, she didnt get half of HIS fortune, she got half of THEIR fortune. Dont subjugate her role with a sexist presumption.



  7. 7

    She deserves every penny but how can anyone feel sorry for Mel having only $425 million to live on? He shouldn't be crying in any way shape or form.



  8. 8

    living with him for 30 years…she should have gotten all his money…he's a bastard, fucktard and living with him couldn't have been a picnic…she deserved a lot more.



  9. 9

    that is the way it should be.



  10. 10

    He didn't lose half of his fortune, he and his wife split half of THEIR fortune. This is so disrespectful - she was home raising 7 children so he could work for THEIR life. Shame on you.



  11. 11

    Re: exBFF – Yes! Yes! Yes! Beautifully said!



  12. 12

    Ya, what to do, what to do. 425 million, poor guy. ANyway, who cares, most of that money is in a trust for the kids. Both of them are good parents.



  13. 13

    Well, at least it went to his real wife (and kids), and not the Russian whore. The money is still being kept in the family, as it were.



  14. 14

    PS: BIG PROPS to everyone who said that it is THEIR fortune. They were married 40 30 years and it was a partnership. He would not have been the huge success he became without her moral support in the early years…. Hey Perez, your sexism is showing.



  15. 15

    Congratulations Robyn! Well done

    Re: exBFF – Yes. 'Their' fortune. I'm hoping he'll be extra motivated now to top up the bank with another Braveheart-ish historical saga. Love, love, love his movies.



  17. 17

    Good for her.



  18. 18

    She WAS A GOOD REAL WIFE and pros to everyone…it was THEIR FORTUNE. I hope someone from Robin side read Perez and see how much people is happy for her.



  19. 19

    Re: exBFF – I dont know about that. I would think it twice. He was the one working to pay her maid so she wouldnt have to lift a finger. I do agree that being married to such a jack-ass had to pay off. Pretty sure she had to put a lot through with this man.



  20. 20

    She's a victim with 450 million?? Give me a break!!..it's not like she's going into a welfare apt with food stamps…



  21. 21

    ALL women are gold digging whores. Hell getting married when you're broke is a bad idea. Being rich makes it an even worse idea. He was the one that WORKED for that money. I didn't know laying on your back entitled you to so much money. Using HIS money for nannies, chefs, maids..yea right..MEN do not get married, WOMEN ARE BIOLOGICALLY PROGRAMMED TO BE GOLD DIGGERS.



  22. 22

    He was the one that worked for the money. Not her. She used his money for chefs, nannies, maids, his money not hers..Getting married is one of the most illogical moves you can do these days



  23. 23

    now thats a real marriage and yes she deserves half and in sure mel would gladly give it to her , as for the other russian bride well i guess she wants half of the half left …i dont see why the ex wife gets residual income of what he earns in future as they are no longer married .. thats rubbish. surely she hAs enough they wonder why noone wants to get married anymore this is why..



  24. 24

    Why you always have a problem with a wife of so many years getting half of what belongs to her??? by law and by natural law!
    That money ultimately will go to the kids she had with Mel.



  25. 25

    aaaw poor mel only gets 400 million!!! what will he do now?!



  26. 26

    Re: NookiesWA – Shut up, everyone else had intelligent comments to make except you! Tou are not going to provoke anyone into an argument with you because your comments are too stupid to bother with…just thought I'd let you know.



  27. 27

    Re: ElleFromVan – Except you just did..Nice job moron.



  28. 28

    Womp womp wwwwooommppp.



  29. 29

    he still has much more than average joe..no tears here and she'll find some guy to share



  30. 30

    Re: ElleFromVan – There is always at least one woman-hating jerk in every batch of comments. No need to every reply to them, because they get off on people calling them out. Just never pay them any kind of attention and they will slither back from the dank hole they came from.



  31. 31

    Well how is it their fortune? It's obviously his if he got it by acting or his other work…so I don't think she deserves that much plus any from the future. Then again I don't really know their situation so. But damn 30 years??



  32. 32

    Re: NookiesWA – How dare you. You don't know his wife, or all women for that matter. This woman stood by him for 30 years, had his kids, and never dishonored him even when he had his antics, please get some help before you spout such blind hate.

    Re: NookiesWA – A marriage is a union. If a man wants a family, the woman works 24/7 to raise his (their) children on good faith for no visible paycheque. She enabled and empowered him to jet off free to build a movie empire knowing she would raise his and her family. If the man deserts, half of the labor acruements go to the female half of that union. Thirty years. It also takes pressure off his kids knowing that she's looked after properly.

    I am a fan of Mel's and still don't like some of his choices made. Robin is a decent woman, bearing him seven children, whom are most likely grown. His choices I am sure have hurt his family. I think personally,we all make choices. We either get rewarded for them or the consequences. I think he owes her half. I also know he can't recoup that if he directs and acts in more movies..I think it is probably fair, for her to have the future residuals..no pre-nup. Anything more he makes in new movies and such, should be all his. Mel, keep it in your pants. lol Do right by your children and quit embarrassing them. I still will watch your movies. I am sure Robin's money will be set up for their children..and should she ever marry again, I am sure she will use a pre-nup..good luck to both of them.

    She deserves every penny for putting up with that piece of shit of a husband, a deadbeat father and a alcoholic whore.

    Re: NookiesWA – the only thing i liked in your post is that you will not get married and therefore you will make a woman very happy …by NOT marrying her.
    Now have a vasectomy to celebrate it, i might even pay for it.

    I think he'll be alright.
