How Robyn Gibson lasted 29 years married to Mel Gibson is a miracle in itself. Basically, it’s his drinking that broke them up. Almost every dumb or tasteless thing Gibson has done through the years involved his struggle with alcohol. But Robyn knew what she was getting into. Back when he was an unknown actor in Australia he used to get drunk at the local pub with his rowdy pals and the night usually ended with a fight in the parking lot with Mel in the middle. The bartender would phone Robyn and she’d pull up in her pickup truck and his friends would toss belligerent Mel into the back and she’d drive him home. Seven kids later, Robyn is about to become the most eligible divorcee in Hollywood when she gets her half of his 900 million dollar fortune.

    I used to think that Mel was one of the coolest men in Hollyweird. However, that thinking has changed. Alcohol will make normally cool guys make sensational a$$es of themselves, and that’s what’s happened here. I suppose her Catholic faith has kept her with Mel all these years, because there aren’t many women who would have put up with what she has. Mel needs serious help, and he needs it now. I just hope this sad story can have a happy ending. But I’m not holding my breath.

    I remember after Mr. whore and booze hound had finished making “The Passion of the Christ”. He was interviewed on all the big shows. He acted totally nuts, his eyes looked glazed over, and anyone with a brain could see there was something dreadfully wrong with him. After all the times he was caught with whores and DUI’s, the question is why did Robyn put up with it for so long. Hell with the crappy Catholic laws about divorce….that whole false relgion is a load of cr*p anyway. He will end up alcohol brain damaged and she will be so totally rich.

    I thought Robyn wasn’t Catholic. I seem to recall him saying that she was going to go to hell.

    A tad off subject, but…..speaking of Catholics, think of this: 25 million (plus) illegals that have invaded us, 99% are Catholic, everyone knows what Catholic rules are regarding having large families, this produces more illegal aliens, more and more are draining our welfare system, free health care, government subsidies, medicaid money, taking all our jobs, running drugs from Mexico, no driver license, no car insurance, paying $30,00 per year for every illegal in jail……that’s why I am a little turned off by the Catholic empire.

    Mind your own fucking business you sad bastards!!
    How the hell do you know so much about the Gibson’s relationship? WTF makes you a expert?
    Oh, i know , it’s from “THE TABLOIDS” – twats like Janet Charlton.
    HA! Get a fucking life.
    This must make scumbags like you all so happy to see a 29 year long marriage end.
    You sit their all sanctimonious of yourselves and criticise every minute detail of someone’s life all the while ignoring the glaringly obvious fact that it is you yourselves that are pathetic losers who need to feed on these people as your own lives are sad and pathetic and empty.

    I Loved his movie POTC. Mel is a sad mess. Over drinking is epidemic in our society. It’s scarey how this legal drug dissolves lives everyday. I’m amazed how many people I know have a drinking problem. Women and wine mostly yak…

    5:55 PM: Anonymous….In your comments, you stated, “Get a fucking life”. Well, seems like that’s what Mel did, and there are many pics to prove it, pics of him with other women and in bars roaring drunk. Oh, and personally, it does not make me either sad or glad that she finally got rid of the lying Catholic bum.

    Funny how all the gossip rags have ‘left out’ the fact that Mel and his Wife have been separated for 3 years. This is old news.

    @7:26: You’re right. They just use Janet’s site to sit in judgment of others. How silly of me to forget. By the way, do the phrases crusade, witch hunt and inquisition mean anything to you? No, of course they don’t.

    ^^^^^^^ What’s sad is the word christian means nothing anymore, people use the word but don’t follow the laws, our politicians claim to be christian but do the complete opposite of what is right. Hollywood christians can’t serve God when they mingle with satan, yeah even in the witch hunt days they didn’t follow Gods Laws, there’s always some that will never learn.

    He’s been cheating on her forever! I’m sure she’s known all along and was just waiting for the right time (when she was sure he’s at the end of his career) I hope she gets her money, and meets a nice faithful partner next, even if she doesn’t marry. She must have endured a lot of heart ache with old sugar tits.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
