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.

Yes indeed!    

this russian chic is destroying Mel's life
Robyn is a wonderful person and she is supporting Mel because they were together for a long time and Russina chic is not to be trusted

Oxy is a gold digger and wants the cash... i hope she falls flat on her arse

AND ANY RICH MAN I HOPE LEARNS FROM THIS, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR WIVES FOR YOUNGER WOMEN BECAUSE YOU WILL BE TAKEN FOR A GRAVY CASHOLA RIDE...

I am young myself but I do not condone Gold Digging and publicity when you have an acrimonious split just to get the public on your side. Oxen Oxy is disgrusting... bitch

Screw the Bitch - kick her out of the house, pay her the child support and never see her again!

Why should Mel pay child support? Why shouldn't Oxy get a job and support the child herself? Millions of women do it every day.

You'll notice she says in her declaration that he was never physically abusive (she may not have ever stood up to him, being a good Catholic with many children to consider). What she did not say was that he was never verbally abusive. We can hear for ourselves that he is now, and I seriously doubt that this just sprang up. I don't believe he was involved with Oksana when he called the female police officer "sugar t*ts"...

Just goes to show the Russian gold digger pushed him over the edge and manipulated him, used him and took advantage of him and his money. Listen to what he says in the tapes. She is a gold digger.

It's too bad it has come to this. Robyn hung on until the Russian trash got prego. I can't blame her for filing for divorce after learning that.

Juan is right, there goes the gravy train. This first wife put up with mel when he was a CHRONIC ALCOHOLIC, CHEATER, COKE USER. She put up with his infidelities and her word means Nada because there is always a first time, and whether or not it happened to her is IRRELEVANT. It could still have happened to OZSLutta, we heard the tapes!!!!!!

Mel had had mistresses and numerous infidelities, yet his wife stayed with him regardless? She seems like a doormat.

what a loser - guess she doesn't think that mel running around drunk insulting everyone and sleeping with every ho he could get his hands on was in anyway abusive...

oh yeah he is also her business partner and her gravy train AS SHE HAS NEVER WORKED A DAY IN HER LIFE.

let us pretend for a minute that oskanka made the whole thing up, would you people have any respect for robin who stayed with a man (for his money/big moviestar) who slept with at least 100 other women??? she's an idiot

Don't beleive everything on those tapes unless we have all the other conversations prior to the tapes the Skank recorded. She is evil and is driven by the lust of money. She is a true disgusting pig. She only recorded what she wanted us to hear. I am so confident that she was the instigator in all this. She inserted herself in his marriage, destroyed his marriage, got herself pregnant, had the kid, and said NO to marry him? WHy get pregnant then? all so she could claw her way into his wallet. She knew that if she married him, her cut of the pie would be alot less. What a pig.

I am not buying that. That type of rage dosen't come out of a fifty-something year old man like that. It had to have been on-going for years. He sounded like he had been doing that type of behavior since his teens. I just don't buy it.

several things come to mind here

1- how much did he pay her for this statement?
2- she doesnt want the father of their children to be the most hated man in America (even if he is guilty)!
3- battered wife syndrome?
4- maybe she thinks she can get this "ugly ole catchers mit" back now!
5- she has an axe to grind with Oksana since she stole her husband and reminded the world that she is frumpy, old and unwanted by Mel!
6- her kids want her to do this?
7- she doesnt want the world to question her sanity for be married to this guy for 30 years
8- he threatened her too?

Remember, there are those trying to discredit her witnesses, such as her son and dentist...Ive they are going to allow this old bags testimony, they better be ready to allow Oksanas witnesses to tell their side too....without bias
