Mel Gibson

Dad Files For Divorce

6/4/2012 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hutton Gibson cited irreconcilable differences from Teddy Joye Gibson
Mel Gibson's dad has just filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned.

93-year-old Hutton Gibson cited irreconcilable differences from Teddy Joye Gibson, who is in her 70's.

Hutton -- interestingly -- is asking for spousal support.   He also wants her to pay attorney's fees.

Hutton had no kids with Teddy, but had 11 kids with his first wife, Anne, and more than 50 grandchildren.

Also interesting ... Hutton is a devout Catholic and his religion does not believe in divorce.

The couple married in 2002.

93? 10 yrs of marriage? Why even bother, you'll be dead soon, possibly before the divorce is even granted. Selfish. Greedy. IDIOT.

Like father, like son. Hypocrites to 9th degree. And anti- Semites to the 9th degree.

She could write a great tell all book if she wanted. Pretty pathetic that he's asking for spousal support, especially since he's such a hardcore Catholic he doesn't consider any Pope since the 1960...s to be legitimate.

As a divorced Catholic I can tell you that the Catholic Church certainly does believe that some marriages are not valid and not Sacramental. So TMZ get your facts straight.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

This is as most TMZ articles: NONE of our business. Hutton Gibson is NOT a public figure.

That said, I'd think that at least once Mel's daddy would think of how his mouth will affect Mel.

Did he blame his divorce on the Jews?

If he is asking for spousal support and attorney fees, I would assume she either has her own money or stole a crap load of money -- probably money Mel gave for his father's care. He is probably trying to get the money back. No old coot would bother with this kind of crap. Something going on behind the scenes, IMO.

He's looking for spousal support and this is just past the 10 year mark. Hm....was there a prenup that mentions the 10 year mark in time, like so many other prenups?
