Mel's stepmom Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson is demanding that Mel pay all her legal fees for her divorce from his father.
Hutton Gibson filed for divorce amid family disputes over how to handle his failing health, but Teddy has a Conspiracy Theory that blames Mel for the split.
Teddy says that Mel owes her an estimated $65,000 in legal fees to go along with the $15,000 a month in alimony she is demanding.
We don't know who to believe in this mess, but we hope it's clearer to legally trained ears. A judge will rule on the claim today.
