Mel Gibson and his wife of 31 years, Robyn Denise Moore, finalized their divorce last Friday, resulting in Gibson losing half of his $850 million fortune.
Because the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, Moore was entitled to half of Gibson’s earnings.
Gibson and Moore met in the 1970s, and were married in 1980. Their 31-year marriage resulted in seven children.
The two separated in 2006 and Moore filed for divorce from Gibson in 2009, claiming “irreconcilable differences”. The divorce will be official on January 9th.
Gibson also has a 2 year old daughter with Oskana Grigorieva, a Russian pianist. The two split in April of 2010 and Grigorieva filed a restraining order against Gibson, and accused him of domestic violence. Gibson pleaded no contest in response and was never charged.
