Mel Gibson’s Costly Divorce

Thursday, April 16, 2009

He’s had a prolifically successful career, and now that Mel Gibson is getting divorced, he may be coughing up some serious cash to his soon-to-be ex-wife Robyn.

The “What Women Want” stud is said to be worth close to $1 billion, and without a prenuptial agreement, his estranged wife is legally entitled to half of everything earned during their marriage.

A legal insider told press, "This could easily be one of the biggest divorce settlements in Hollywood history. Any attorney would advise her to take half."

Thankfully, nobody is anticipating a messy divorce. "This divorce will probably reach a settlement in a matter of months. It likely won't be messy since there's enough money to go around."
