Mel Gibson Divorce: He Could Pay for His Screwups

9/30/2010 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's 2006 anti-Semitic rant and his 2010 tirades against Blacks, women and others have become an issue in his divorce with Robyn, and it could end up costing Mel big bucks.

Mel Gibson divorce.
As we just reported, Mel's lawyers have submitted a settlement proposal to Robyn... and her lawyers are "optimistic" they can reach a settlement.

But we're told there are still outstanding issues, including something called "good will."  It sounds strange, but the good will of a famous person is considered an asset in a marriage -- something that has commercial value.  In the past Mel had a lot of good will that translated into being able to make movies that people would pay to see. 

But after Mel's 2006 and 2010 rants, the good will has evaporated if not disappeared.  As a result ... the asset has been greatly devalued.

We're told one of the issues is whether Mel should have to pay Robyn for squandering his good will.

And the same principle applies to paying spousal support.  Mel has an argument that he's not really making much money anymore so he shouldn't have to pay support.  But there's a counter-argument -- Robyn shouldn't suffer because Mel screwed up.

She deserves whatever she can get. After being married so many years, and he f***ed up. I feel bad for him over that russian bitch, but, the wife, she should be well taken care of!

Robin deserves at least half of his money if not more. She is not the one that cheated and screwed up. Mel did and look at the mess he has himself in now with this Russian whore. He should have stayed with the woman that stood by him for 30 years and gave him 7 children. Well I guess there is no fool like an old fool. Robyn, get everything you deserve and more on top of that.

Why can´t women stand on their own two feet and make their own money even if they are married?

#10- she did have a job, raising their 7 or 8 kids and babysitting Mel's sorry ass. He needs to be supporting her and I hope she nails his sorry behind to the wall. The man is a pig and she is a saint to have put up with his BS for as long as she did!

Oh Pulease...Mel did NOTHING to squander his good will, the dishonest media who slandered him did it, as well as the extortionist Oksana and her co-conspirators.

That's pretty low, Robyn, kick a man when he's down. Is that what you've done or it this TMZ spin? I tend to think it's spin.

DOn't be fooled: if one is POOR here then they most certainly do support thmselves and until very recently the men simply walked away. Laws have been changed to make men pay support, but in most cases the amount paid is so minute it is hardly any help. Still, sinlg emoms will take whatever they can get inmost cases because they NEED it.

However, for the rich everyone wants their cut, including the wife or husband, depends on who is the rich one.

There is most certianly two systems in place here, one for the poor and one for the rich--but it's not to be discussed really, ust not be negative aobut the US (that is changing as people wake up to the inequities) so hush hush about it. "America is fairness and equality" is bull. American WAS about fairness, but that has long ago been so distorted by convolted laws and regulations in order to advance the rich's agendas....well neeed I say more?

Hey Sam! I dont think this is Robyn's doing, it may be but personally, i think its her "lowers" (Oksana slam) who are behind this. Robyn has always supported Mel and I dont see her kicking him while he's down....but then again......ya never know, right?

I'm with you Loser, that's why I think it's spin. BUT if Robyn is te source: it's low to kick a person in the dirt. Help them up--then slug 'em in the face! :P
