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.

We are all responsible for our own actions. Period. If someone is driving you "crazy", you need to get away from that person. Mel is a drunk. He is off the chain for whatever reason and his actions are owned by him. He is responsible for what he says and does. What would you expect his ex wife to say, he is supporting her!!

Thank you, Comment #515 Linda, you said it pretty well, along with others.

Too many people are so busy calling people skanks etc that they don't see where the responsibility lies, with Mel Gibson himself.

He had more than enough opportunity to get himself away from any difficult situation for him to handle, whether it be personal or business. He has had far more opportunity than most of us, he can have reps, assistants and lawyers take care of whatever needs to get done.

I find it interesting in this day and age people are so sure that domestic violence is only a case of a woman running from her home beaten half to death, claiming he has never done it before and vowing never to return. Oh, and the perp is some guy with plumber's crack, no teeth, 400lbs, unemployed and a moron.

The real shame is how many of these armchair warriors comments are going to make another abused woman, or man, decide they should not leave a situation that endangers their life because they don't want to be called a skank, a liar, a gold digger and whatever other insult some of ill minded people posting say.

I think she is protecting the money (inheritance) her kids will receive when Mel kicks the bucket. She is not stupid.

So Mel never physically abused his wife of 28 years? That just explains how they were able to stay together that long. But it doesn't make any difference. Then was then and now is now. Plus, Robyn just wants her children to still love their father.

All you Mel Gibon apologists are completely ridiculous. I'll grant you the tapes don't show the whole story. But for Christ's sake, some of the stuff he flips out about are insane. He screams at her for wearing tight clothes, having breast implants, and not giving him a *******. He admits to beating her, threatens to kill her, and says she deserves to be raped. How could you defend that? Regardless of what a woman says or does to you, you don't scream obscenities or threaten violence. He doesn't make a single logical argument about anything. He's no man. He's a hotheaded bitch that would get his ass kicked by a real man. You people are demented.

Personally, I think Mel Gibson is having a break down, hearing the tape's is hard to listen to, because of who he is, but the sound in his voice, his so angry at Oksana, you can hear just how much is hate's her, his out of breath. This is the out come of having an affair on your spouse, thinking the grass is greener on the other side, sorry but it does turn brown, and this is also where you find out just who your true friends are! I hope Mel get's the help he needs w/all the true friends he has, to get back to who he was, your going to be ok, step back, except where blame needs to be, and move forward, you will, and are going to be ok, your in a bad place right now, deal w/the pain, and what ever is ahead of you, you really will be ok.

This is a bit too orchestrated it is clear that this woman sees him as a big payday for her She seems to have recorded alot of conversations on someones instructions. The damage to his reputation is such that he will never recover. Her conversations are baited to draw responses from him a bit too organised. He needs to learn to shut his mouth with his personal racist and profanity laiden views. she doesn't same to understand that she is also damaging any future for herself with any male who will trust her????

Sure. He just became a raving alcoholic/racist/abusive over night. I am sure Robyn got her share of abuse but is denying it to keep the checks coming in and her kids unaware.

One does not become a lunatic over night, I am sure Robyn sadly put up with her share of abuses..

BOOO! GO AWAY MEL, freaking loser...

Actually Mel sounds sincere on his tapes .. whether that gal really is psycho or not, he certainly seemed to believe it himself. Thus he sez, she sez (and since she was the one doing the taping, she was the only one putting on an act).
