Celebrity Breakups: Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore

They’ve been married for 28 years, but Mel Gibson’s wife Robyn filed for divorce on Good Friday, according to TMZ:

Sources tell us there is no prenuptial agreement — they were married in 1980, before Mel Gibson amassed a fortune estimated at $900 million back in 2006. Under the laws of California, community property — which includes earnings — is divided 50/50.

Robyn is also asking for spousal support and attorneys fees.

Robyn lists the date of separation as “to be determined.” This is important, because earnings generally cease to be community property when the couple separates. There could be a skirmish over this. We’re told the couple grew increasingly apart over the last few years, especially since Mel’s drunk driving arrest in 2006.

Mel and Robyn released a statement, saying:

“Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so.”
