When we say Mel Gibson, we immediately remember the movie “Braveheart”! The picture of Mel gives us the feeling to shout: "Well, that's a man!" But, not everything is so wonderful in his life... It all started out of love. Not even Mel Gibson was immune to it.
Namely, he met his first wife Robyn Denis Moore in the late 70s when he was still a relatively unknown actor. In June 1980, they stood in front of an altar in Australia, and together they had one daughter and six sons. After 26 years of marriage, Mel and Robyn divorced in 2006.
A few years later, Gibson pointed out in an interview that the problems in their marriage started on the day he was arrested for drunk driving in Malibu. Robyn filed for divorce in 2009, and two years later their divorce was finalized. As the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement before marriage, Robin got half of everything they earned together.
After the divorce, Gibson began a relationship with Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva. The couple had a daughter, Lucia, in 2009, and they separated a year later. Grigorieva reported Mel to the police for the alleged harassment, so the famous actor was not allowed to approach her or their daughter. According to the police report, the pianist accused the actor of domestic violence. Due to Gibson's accusations, some production companies rejected him and for years he defended himself that none of the above was true.
"I have never been violent towards anyone. It is clear to me that many now think and respect that, but everything you read in the media is pure rubbish. All the facts must be put into context, and all I wanted was a way out of the toxic connections,” Gibson said in an interview years after the allegations. After years of fighting in court, Gibson finally received confirmation that he could see his daughter, and Oksana had to pay $ 750,000.
Since 2014, the famous actor has been in a relationship with Rosalind Ross, who gave birth to their first and Gibson's ninth child. They met when she started working for his production house Icon and soon fell in love. Today, we can see Gibson only at film promotions, but also as he walks with his youngest daughter. He tries to live "under the radar" of the public as much as possible. He felt more than anyone that glory is a double-edged sword!
