Robyn Gibson Supports Mel in Court

7/15/2010 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's soon-to-be ex-wife, Robyn, has written a sworn declaration on behalf of Mel, saying he has never physically abused her or any of their children in the 28 years they were married ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned in the declaration, Robyn writes, "Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage."  Robyn also says there was never any domestic violence perpetrated by Mel against any of their children. 

Yesterday, Robyn was spotted out running errands in Malibu.

We've learned the declaration was filed with the court this morning.  We're told Robyn's declaration will also be submitted to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department when Mel's lawyers present their evidence to deputies next week.
 
In the 1-page declaration, Robyn acknowledges that she is divorcing Mel but says,  "Mel was a wonderful and loving father."

Robyn -- who is widely respected in Hollywood -- could ultimately be very powerful ammo for Mel.

Robyn.....now is the chance to do right by your kids and teach them RIGHT FROM WRONG and teach them.....how Mel Gibson treats women is unacceptable and reprehensible. Stick up for yourself woman!!!

ROBYN.....STICK UP FOR YOURSELF......DO NOT BLAME THE OTHER WOMAN. Think of your kids.....do you want your sons acting like their father? Do you want your daughters being treated how Mel treats women? Aren't your kids most important?

If Robyn admits that he was abusive it makes her look weak and a bad parent for staying so long. Plus the divorce is not yet final and she aint got her money.

if what she says is the truth, then why is she and mel getting divorced, why did he stray from the marriage if he has such respect for his wife, obviously he has no respect for the - excuse me for saying it -, russian skank, then why was he with her in the first place, mel must have lost his mind a long time ago and filters nothing anymore, hates on jews, hates on everybody, dates and has baby with obvious no good woman, just to turn on her too, and now robyn steps up and defends him, what the... they should all call in a psychiatrist and diagnose mel with - what - serious braindamage from alcoholism or something, he is off the hook, a person with any sense would not go on such hating rampages he has

:-) Like that has a lot of validity. It's called "protecting the alimony."

Any trained psychotherapist could study photos of this woman and sense that she had been abused. Look at the stress in her face.

Why did Oksy hook up with Mel? Because she loved him? What did she bring to the relationship? He brought his wealth, fame, and good looks.

It's unfortunate that so many women use men for their money.

good god mel gibson did not become a freak overnight and sweeheart get help because no body deserves this kind of treatmeant even if oksana was crazy,the ex wife i suspect is either suffering battered womans syndrome or shes a freak as well, either way her statement will never be as strong as those tapes and mels well known bad behavior. Actually shes making a fool out of herself because not to many people are going to believe her because theresjust to much evidence to the contary.

Bi-polar people don't always exhibit violence. My ex never beat up his first wife. It was as he aged and the mood swings got worse, and he didn't take the meds, his insanity would lash out. The tapes are all too familiar dialogues. Whether you believe Mel or Oksana, someone is very ill and has degenerated into a violent, crazed person.

Truth    

WELL OF COURSE SHE WOULD SAY THAT!! EVEN THOUGH SHE WILL BE EX-MRS MEL DOESNT MEAN SHE DOESNT HAVE TO DEAL WITH HIM ON MONEY AND KIDS ISSUES. SOUNDS LIKE SHE JUST DOESNT WANT ANY PART OF IT OR ANYTHING TO DESTROY HER FAMILY IF TRUTH CAME OUT FOR HER OR THE KIDS SAKE. PRETTY MUCH IT. IT'S LIKE ASKING FOR A REFERENCE. ARE U GONNA USE A BOSS WHO HATES U?? SO OF COURSE SHE STICK UP FOR HIM CUZ OF THE KIDS. NUFF SAID.
