Mel Gibson Sued -- Foreclosure an Option

9/23/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson could lose three of his Malibu properties and his church if he loses two lawsuits that were filed by a company that built all things Mel in Malibu ... TMZ has learned.

Mel Gibson Foreclosure

According to one of the suits, Mel and soon-to-be ex-wife Robyn -- also a defendant -- allegedly owe Ramage Construction around $12,000 on the 3 residential properties located near Mel's Malibu church.  The suit asks for the money but, in the alternative, asks permission to foreclose on the 3 homes to satisfy the debt.

Ramage filed a second suit against the A.P. Reilly Foundation, which owns Mel's church, claiming it owes around $200,000. The suit asks for the same relief -- payment or foreclosure.

No immediate comment from Mel's rep.

Mel may be a talented actor but is a mess off screen. His racist rants are going to forever resonate the real type of man, or monster, that Mel Gibson really is -- not just what he said on the phone (which was recorded for posterity) but also what he shouted at the police officers in Malibu. The fact that he is worshipped by the Church for his horror movie "The Passion Of The Christ" shows the kind of mess the Church really is in with their perversions and endless scandals. Mel is a racist plain and simple.

I'm pretty sure Mel can afford to pay $212,000. Oksana hasn't been successful in stealing all of his money.

There is no way this man will ever be redeeemed. He probably should've died in that car crash. It would've been a blessing in disguise. I love TMZ. Less gays. Less Gaga. It's funny how gays & Gaga seem to go hand in hand. There's a definite connection there. That's why that Cuban ***got likes her so much.

Wow, that would be stupid losing 3 properties over $12,000!! Sell some of that sh*t you amassed to pay off your debt, a-hole!! Either he's a tightwad expecting to get everything free or he has a liquidity issue. I believe it's the former.

I have seen this type of claim time and again with celebrities and outstanding work payment claims. The next step is to publicize it so that the celebrity will be shamed and they get paid which is all they want. I wouldn't be sure if a $12,000 outstanding payment would warrant a foreclosure. Just because you issue an invoice to someone, it doesn't mean you were contracted to do it and have completed it successfully.

OLD NEWS. Rampage sued him in June, before all the drama leaked.

Yep, agree JWW. They are desperately digging up all they can for spin - is this the best they could find? It's a joke. $12K is peanuts for Mel.
