Mel Gibson’s wife of 28 years, Robyn Moore, has filed for divorce.

Moore, 53, citing irreconcilable differences, is seeking joint physical and legal custody over their minor child, Thomas, 9, according to court papers.

She is also seeking spousal support and attorney’s fees and is asking the court to deny her husband any spousal support. 

The divorce could shape-up to be one of the most expensive in the history of Hollywood, as it is thought the couple who wed in 1980, did not sign a pre-nup, meaning that the actor’s wife could be entitled to half his estimated £1billion fortune.

A statement released by the pair on Monday, said: “Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so.”

Theirs must have been one of the longest running marriages in showbiz, what a shame it’s come to an end. After nearly 30 years of putting up with Gibson’s erratic behavior, the lady deserves half.
