Mel Gibson's Ex-Wife to Receive $500 Million

Posted: April 15th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mel GibsonSubmit Comment
We know that Mel Gibson has had a successful career for the last thirty years and hit the jackpot with "The Passion of the Christ" after taking a gamble on the controversial film. But how much is the legendary actor worth?

According to Entertainment Weekly, Gibson has been able to accumulate a personal wealth of $1 billion, and now his low-profile wife is legally entitled to half of that after she filed to end their 28 year marriage.

Celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder doesn't expect for Mrs. Gibson to make this a drawn-out battle. "If she is like any other wife, she'll want her money now," he said. "She doesn't want to be a partner in a movie that may or may not be made 10 years from now. I think she'd want to be paid up front."

Felder added that the divorce should not have much effect on Gibson's upcoming projects, unless his wife decides that she wants a piece of them.

Gibson's divorce will become the most expensive celebrity divorce ever. Michael Jordan previously paid $168 million in his 2006 split from his wife Juanita, Steven Spielberg's gave up $100 million in his 1989 split from actress Amy Irving, and Paul McCartney shelled out $48.6 million in a 2008 settlement with Heather Mills.

So she is divorcing him, and she wants half a billion dollars......does that not soudn f*cked up to you. Yes she should have some money,maybe 25 million since he has that kinda money, But got me thinking Mel obviously has kids, and the first thing the mother of his children wants is Money....not a way to organize partial custody of their kids,,,that is low!!

The courts don't see it as his money, but their money. When he was working, she was taking care of the kids. If he can keep $500 million, she should be able to as well.

Rubbish... Just because they were married doesn't mean she should get half... What has she done? Mel earned that money... She sat back and enjoyed the ride. The people who payed to see gibsons movies didn't care about his wifes cut! She didn't even have the decency to bring out a cookbook.

This is mess up! that's his money why should she get half of his hard earned money. The court system is completely retarded.

Give her a couple of the houses (including the biggest) and $50 million plus alimony. It sucks, especially for a devote Catholic like Gibson. Maybe he will throw himself into his work and pop out some quality projects, in front or behind the lens.

Thanks for listening WP, now this is news compared to any Lohan scandal related media push you can drudge up. sh*t, even Lohan's scandals are a joke to be scandalous. Add Reid, Hilton, Ritchie and or Spears to the list of "who cares?" moments.

You know how you can tell is a woman is a gold-digger? Answer: check to see if she's got a vagina.

If I had that kind of cash I wouldn't get married. That is ****ing stupid. Half my ****, for what? And then they don't want to be called whores... kill a bitch.
Ranger writes:
on April 15th, 2009 at 4:30:07 PM

Well... 28 years ago Mel didn't have this kind of cash, and he needed a live-in baby machine. So... in her defence... but yeah, I'd just O.J. da Bitch!

Mel Gibson's wife is a gold digging whore. She isn't entitled to any of it. Mel Gibson was the one who worked his ass off and earned his money. Why the f*ck does that bitch think she deserves 500 million.

"what shteak said in his first comment" all she did was marry him no acting,no directing just stayed at home spending and being a mom and that entitles her to half of what he earned? So if he divorced her would he get $20 bucks? lol.

If I win the lotto or make it big *not likely lol* I'm never getting married! HALF MY ASS!

RAW!
Ranger writes:
on April 15th, 2009 at 9:43:18 PM

Well... when you divorce a c*m bucket (wife), one must calculate the price of having a live-in whore. Hourly rate (of a clean one...no open sores) x 24 (add double-time for Holidays) x 365 (don't forget leap years) x 28 f*cking years Mr. Jew-Hater was DUMB ENOUGH TO REMAINED MARRIED... f*ck ME!!!!!!

Mel should talk with Hulk Hogan.. he's lookin' to O.J. someone right now (see his comments in Rolling Stone magazine), and he could use the extra cash. It's win-win... the perfect storm!
