Mel Gibson Responds to Robyn

4/13/2009 6:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson has filed his response to wife Robyn's divorce petition -- and it only took a matter of hours.

Mel Gibson

Gibson, unlike his wife, gives a specific date of separation -- the papers say the date is August 26, 2006. The date is hugely significant -- Mel's infamous DUI arrest was less than a month earlier -- July 28, 2006. Gibson cited irreconcilable differences.

As we reported, Robyn and Mel grew apart after the arrest. The date Gibson lists for separation confirms this.

Gibson also lists "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce.

Gibson is repped by prominent divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman, whose celeb clients include Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Reese Witherspoon.

Mel, I really don't know why you are telling us this. Not a single one of us are going to be in that courtroom with you, singing your praises. You're on your own, dude. Start acting like it.

Hey Rick, Mel gibson isn't right on his rant...I think you need to educate yourself a little bit..Its real destructive those words he said, and that the fact you think he was right just shows you how wrong he and you are...

No wonder he was upset and drinking then. Any man would have done the same. Having your wife betray you and telling you they plan to cash in would more than hurt anyone. This happens all the time...I know. Sorry I was mad at you Mel!!!!!

I THOUGHT CATHOLICS DON'T DIVORCE. AND WE ALL KNOW HE'S SUCH A GOOD CATHOLIC. I SUPPOSE HE'LL HAVE TO COUGH UP A WHALLOP MONEY FOR BENNY THE POPE, WHO CAN THEN RULE THAT THE MARRIAGE WAS NEVER CONSUMATED IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHICH, OF COURSE, WOULD BASTARDIZE HIS SEVEN CHILDREN. I HOPE HIS WIFE TAKES HIM FOR EVERY CENT HE HAS. HE'S A FIRST-DEGREE DIRT BAG.

Party 'till you die!    

Mel sounds like a complete drunken douche. Maybe his wife didn't like Uncle Mel taking Britney down to Mexico for her abortion/vacation around that time!

As I understand it, Catholics have no problem with divorce unless either party wants to remarry. that's when an annulment is needed.

Why all this drama? ALL marriages in no-fault divorce states end due to "irreconcilable differences." No news here....
