Mel Gibson Now Officially Divorced from Robyn Moore

By Nottage and Ward on January 2, 2012

In 2009, Robyn Gibson filed for divorce from her actor husband Mel Gibson, and as of December 23, their divorce is final, according to TMZ. Robyn Gibson, who has gone back to her maiden name, Robyn Moore, filed for divorce soon after the discovery that Mel Gibson’s then-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva was pregnant.

According to The Huffington Post, Gibson and Moore separated in 2008 after 28 years of marriage. They have seven children together. Overall, the couple’s divorce had been relatively amicable, and Moore even defended Gibson when Grigorieva accused him of abuse during their contentious custody battle, which only came to a close in April of this year.

A CBS News article reports that Gibson and Moore, who had been married before the actor’s multi-million dollar success, did not have a pre-nuptial agreement. This means that Moore is legally entitled to half of Gibson’s assets and earnings since they were married, which is estimated at $850 million. Only one of their seven children is a minor, but that still requires a custody agreement.

Being in the public spotlight can take its toll on a married couple. Whether the stress of celebrity-status contributes to a marriage’s downfall is case specific, but it cannot be argued that a couple would have a difficult time trying to work out problems in their marriage while being constantly watched and judged by the media and the public.
