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 isnt bad looking at all. i'm sure some dude will have a lethal weapon in her in no time"

And considering Mel's age, drink history which predesposes a person to diabetes maybe a more functional lethal weapon at that. :D

3/3 .. normal standard in day-to-day life, crossing the line anyway is a legitimate reason to apologize, to take the unfair statement back and replace it for a fair one. More and more people, fans and non-fans alike, have had it with the amount of hatred and self-righteous condemnation coming MG's way. Contrary to MG, who misbehaved once and apologized for it, many of these people go on and on and show NO remorse. The time that we are willing to take these continual attacks seriously is over - it looks too much like bigotry itself. Whether MG is a bigot remains to be seen, many of those attacking him however are at least themselves infected with the disease they accuse him of having; a hateful, prejudiced attitude with no ability and/or willingness to deal with facts and emotions in a balanced and unbiased way. As for other misrepresentations, MG stated that he did NOT say sugar ''....'': An officer called his female colleague that name. It is not likely the officer would let MG lie about it. When people keep attributing this remark to MG despite that, it says everything about them and nothing about MG.

1/3 First, MG and his wife BOTH STATE in the divorce papers that they parted in 2006. That sheds a different light on him supposedly deceving her 2 years LATER. The fact alone that they are on friendly terms now disputes it. And reporters are digging for dirt. Prejudice is built on skipping relevant information. And this is very relevant information.
Also, people should not misrepresent their personal opinion that MG is a hot-headed bigot as a rational fact. That is a wrongful notion. 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 makes 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 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 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)

SusieqinBA doesn't know squat. Robyn's divorce filing requested joint legal custody for their son, and Mel's response petitioned for the same.
