Mel Gibson Divorce - Goodbye, But Not Farewell

4/8/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With all the strife in celebrity marriages these days, our sources say the marriage between Mel Gibson and Robyn is coming to a very amicable end ... but in reality the pair will be in business long after the divorce is final.



We're told Mel and Robyn have agreed on pretty much every big issue. In fact, it's so smooth, a judge isn't even involved yet. Instead, Mel and Robyn are using lawyers, accountants and business managers to hash out a settlement.

There is one complicating factor: The large majority of the couple's assets are in the form of houses and other non-liquid property. Robyn will get roughly half in the property settlement. The problem is -- property doesn't pay the bills month to month, and it's a bad time to sell.

Nevertheless ... the suits are busy valuing the assets, and we're told everything should be settled in the next two months.

But the divorce won't be the end of their relationship. We're told Mel doesn't have the ready cash to buy Robyn out of Icon Productions, his film company. So the plan is for both of them to stay in business together after the marriage ends.

So it is possible to end a long marriage without going to court every five minutes.

Robyn is far better off away from Mel than with him after the drinking, running around and mental instability.

IF YOU MARRY AND HAVE NO CHILDREN; YOU CAN GET A DIVORCE AND IT IS ALL OVER; HOWEVER, IF YOU MARRY AND YOU DO HAVE CHILDREN, YOU ARE MARRIED FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, MEL!

He looks really bad in the pic; anyone notice how yellow his face is? Does anyone know if he and Oks living together? What about the movie that suppose to be made in Mexico, did that fall thru? Has he really stopped smoking, drinking?

I'm glad Robyn has sole custody of Tommy. I bet Tommy doesn't want to be around his dad that much.

Does Robyn have sole legal custody? Or sole physical custody? If it's physical custody he may have substantial visitation rights, including sleep overs, vacations etc... It's hard for fathers to get sole custody anywhere, even in California. It's even harder in cases of unmarried couples. However

I think with the girlfriend's first kid there is at least shared physical custody. It's also possible the primary residence is the father's, who is more stable financially and otherwise.

It would be hard for Gibson to get sole custody not only because of biases toward mothers in general but also because of emotional instability. I think a judge, had it come to that, would have weighed that in.

Mel Gibson lives with Robyn, full time, thus the divorce. He is always with Tommy, the child they havre shared custody over, and is never with the russian hooker oks.
He dont give a sh-it about her.

He got his life, his new life, and the hooker is not in it at all.

for the stupid coments before, Mel Gibson had not been separated from Robyn for 2 years before he fc oksa..
He was still living with Robyn and making love to Robyn until january 2009...
So yeah it was wrong all through it.
He tried to drop oksa several times, but she came after him and stalk him everywhere even in Costa Rica, Guanacaste where he was with all his childrens and grand childrens!
she remnted a room in one of the many ressorts near his own beach, in order to can get at him.. with some photographers..

She became pregnnant of a man after Mel had told her there that he didnt wanted to see her anymore ever.
Last time he saw her was march 4, next time was april 26...
she became pregnant in between, with a man she knew, and put the fatherhood on Mel Gibson, but the kid is of course not his.

That russian trash was always a hooker. she work for money from she was 17-18 in russia, already she was doing it, she never worked a day in her life.. only at spreading legs.

Her kids must feel really shamelfull to know that their mother go after men for money and suck their d--- for money.
also to know that she is totaly crazy and a chronic compulsive lier, and has no education at all and dont know anything.
You can hear how ignorant she is.

It is very good that Mel Gibson is with Robyn so much now a day, and that they have some good laugh together.

With her by his side at Icon, things can only go better for Mel Gibson! :))

Olympe your comments don't make sense. How can Mel and Robyn still be living together and Mel has Oks on his arm at the premiers (they obviously are sharing the same hotel room together/sleeping together; or is she with him at the premiers because Mel is promoting her "music"; didn't she write the song or something for EOD?) and Robyn has another man in her life? I feel that Mel's first response to Oks being pregnant was to have an abortion; I don't believe she was in Costa Rica uninvited, following him like you say. Mel flaunted her too much during the time once a divorce was filed slapping his marriage, Robyn, his kids, the whole family in the face, publicly humiliating them, as if he was saying, "I did a good hatchet job on my marriage and I'm damn proud of it: here's the woman who did the job and here's the baby who's the hatchet!!" There never was any indication that he was trying to get rid of her, though after public exposure he probably was too embarrassed to drop her (I do believe that when a divorce first came up Mel might have tried to drop her which is why she came up pregnant because she wasn't going to be dropped!). I don't believe he genuinely has any love for her or for that baby. And it doesn't make sense that the baby is fathered by someone else and Mel going along with being the father (I'm sure he had a DNA test done, but since it's been quiet about that makes me believe the tests are confirmed for him being the father), however with Mel's mental state he probably would be going along with it because he is truly detached from reality! If he had a vasectomy then Robyn, of course, would know and she would know that the kid wasn't his.

The one thing about Robyn still being co-owner with Icon I would hope that she would demand the sale of that home that Oks is living in and end that woman's "contract" and force the woman out! If David Foster bought her a house, then why don't she go live in that, or is it in her name?

Anybody else feel the same way?

I would like to know if the movie that was suppose to be in Mexico is off (I hope so). I hope the viking movie as well falls through and doesn't happen - Mel really doesn't know what he is doing!

I doubt his fiance ever lived in a separate residence full time. More than likely they wanted to give that impression they to try to make it seem more proper, as stupid as that sounds. He went on about being a big family man so that aspect was very bad publicity. But of course Mel has always lived his private life differently than his professed values. It shocks me that some people refuse to accept that. He wouldn't be the first person in Hollywood to be about bs. I think it's obvious Mel butchered his own marriage.

Where on earth did you get the idea he'd be embarrassed to drop his girlfriend if he wanted to. The truth is he flaunted her because he wanted to show his life had happily moved on and he wasn't ashamed of it. Poor Robyn. His girlfriend was already over a month pregnant when Robyn filed, you have that part reversed. He doesn't strike me as a nice guy, definitely not the kind most women I know would go for but I don't know why you doubt his love, whatever the hell that means to him. She's not cut from the cloth that asks too many uncomfortable questions so she's perfect for an a** hole like him.

I never heard any credible reports his wife was with a man. She stayed admirably out of the press.

The divorce could have dragged out a lot longer but I guess they agreed on most big points as they mentioned here. It shouldn't surprise anyone Robyn had part ownership of a production company, she's part owner of his fake Catholic Church too and she's Episcopalian for Christ's sake! There's probably a lot of financial entanglement to be sorted.

As far as I know all the projects are still on but the nuts and bolts take a while sort out so you don't hear that much about them at first.

1/3 People should stop misrepresenting their personal opinion that MG is a hot-headed bigot as a rational fact. These are wrongful, prejudiced assumptions. First, one has to believe that people are never unfair, or that drunk people are never unfair, to consider the type of event that took place in 2006 proof that a person is a bigot - and such an ignorant view would make one an unfit judge in any case. Secondly, this incident was in reality a once in a lifetime event in over 50 years of life that shouldn't be misrepresented as the opposite, a characteristic trait. When people have to twist a point to make a point not only do they not have a point, they also cast doubt on their own motives and/or ability to reason in a sound way. Is it unlikely that a person would have taken cheap shots under the circumstances MG was in at the time? No. Who wouldn't feel bullied if ever arrested, it's an instinctive reaction to having our freedom taken away. And when are we most likely to take a cheap shot? When we feel bullied ourselves. Additionally, when is it most likely that we would give in to that type of emotion .. (see 2/3)

1/3 First, MG and his wife both state in the divorce papers that they parted in 2006. That sheds a different light on the supposed deceit of his wife two years later. The fact alone that they are on friendly terms disputes it. And reporters are digging for dirt.
