Not every celebrity divorce can be as quick as painless as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.. Well, theirs may have not been so painless because she walked away with nothing. Zero. After staying married to crazy for 5 years. Shame on you Katie. I think you deserved something.
Anyway, not everyone else falls for that prenup stuff, like Mel Gibson’s ex wife. If anyone deserves to be paid for marrying crazy…….
Robyn Gibson is getting paid for that 33 year marriage to Mel, back when he was at least keeping his cray-cray a little under control. TMZ got a hold of their divorce settlement and Robyn is getting PAID!
Robyn is walking away with half of the Screen Actors Guild pension benefits from the 31 years of their marriage, a chunk of Mel’s pension benefits, half of the 401k benefits from their production company, Icon. Plus, they are dividing their earnings and property, which is about $800mil.. Go ahead and add that additional $400mil to your bank account Robyn… but was it worth it?
Here are a few more fun divorce stories.
Camille Grammer is getting $30mil in her divorce from Kelsey. She’s getting ready to sign her divorce deal that will split their $60mil of assets and property.. and they have three houses on the market right now so that money could go up.
Sources are saying that Camille really deserves this payout because she’s the one responsible for that fortune in the first place. When she met Kelsey, he was broke! He blew through his ‘Cheers’ and ‘Frasier’ money (literally, drugs) and she’s the one that helped build the money back up.
And one more divorce that’s pending is Heidi Klum and Seal. Seal got ticked off and accused Heidi of cheating once he found out that she was ‘fornicating with the help’. (Heidi- I say aim higher than a bodyguard but at least it’s not a man-ny.) Seal is still trying to use this new relationship as leverage for mo’ money (she= $70mil, he’s only worth $15mil) but he wants to settle so they can finally end their marriage.
Mel Gibson made ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and then went on an anti-Semitic tirade a few times.. Not to mention to verbally and physically assaulting his baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva and going racist cray-cray on a screenwriter in front of his whole family.
But all that count because Mel doesn’t think that he’s done any wrong.
He admitted during an interview that Hollywood isn’t a very forgiving town (“Really?”, asks Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey Jr.) .. but here’s the kicker- he said that he doesn’t need to be forgiven because he hasn’t done anything wrong. (“Really?”, asks Oksana Grigorieva, Cop Sweet T***, and Joe Eszterhas.)
Here’s what he said, “What did I do, really? It is kind of ridiculous. So it’s kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what needs to be forgiven and I don’t consider that anything does because I didn’t hurt anyone. But you know, hey that’s life. It ain’t easy and it’s not fair. You’ve just got to slip the old water off the back and move on.”
His latest caught-on-tape rant happened in the privacy of his own home, which happened to be filled with guests. He started going off on screenwriter Joel Eszterahas in front of his family! Joe’s son was so disturbed by Mel’s hissy fit that he recorded the whole thing on his on his iPod. And he was also so terrified after the meltdown that he slept with a knife under his pillow for awhile. Yikes!
But Mel says he was just responding to a frustrating situation. He said that he lost it because Joe was unable to produce an acceptable script for the movie The Maccabees.
He wrote a letter to Joe, saying, “I was very frustrated that when you arrived at my home at the expense of both Warner Brothers and myself you hadn’t written a single word of a script or even an outline after 15 months of research, meetings, discussions and the outpouring of my heartfelt vision for this story.”
And Joe responded, with a nine page letter. Mel said, “The guy writes a nine-page letter…if he put half as much time and effort and creativity and imagination into a screenplay, which he was supposed to write, as he did into that letter…we wouldn’t be having this conversation. It’s kind of like you build a house, you hire a guy to put a roof on it. He comes over and talks about the roof and then you get rained on all night.”
And Mel’s final excuse for his blow up? He said, “A guy tapes you in your own home…when did it come to the place where you can’t blow off steam in your own home?”
Watch Mel’s appearance on the Tonight Show below. What do you think about his explanation? Watch it now!
Mel Gibson felt the first draft of a script should have been in his hands when he exploded into a fit of rage against the writer. A recording has surfaced of the rant in which Mel is heard saying “I go to work, you’re getting paid, I’m not! S**t! I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me! Just like every motherf**ker!” Mel spews the F word at least seven times, and then just totally loses it, screaming “who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat?, f**king c**t, c**ksucker whore.”

Mel Gibson was working on a movie about the Jewish biblical hero Judah Maccabee when Warner Bros. suddenly pulled the plug on the project. No one really knew why until the screenwriter, Joe Eszterhas, fired off an angry letter to Mel.
Joe said that Mel was only doing the movie because ‘he hated Jews’ and hoped to convert them over to Christianity. Joe said that Mel always made anti-Semitic comments and called the Holocaust ‘horse crap’.
He also claimed that Mel still ranted over his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and said that he was going to have her killed with the help of his two FBI buddies.
Mel admitted that he lost his cool with the writer once but called the accusations ‘completely fabricated’. He said that the only reason they stopped the movie was because the script was terrible.
