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.

I know we think its strange but i had a customer once do the same thing when he called in to cancel something he said he had a by pass and while he was on that table and didnt' know if he'd come out or not he said he knew one thing was certain he was tired of living a lie and having kept secrets and that he wanted a divorce even if that meant he were to be alone in life he said he hoped to find love again but that he was tired . So you see there is a reason most times we are not aware of and can only speculate.

Typical religious nut. Beliefs are only to be forced down other people's throats, but don't apply to you.

Having a celebrity as a son, who is often on the crosshairs of the MSM, has its hardships:
the invasion of his private affairs and all the "collateral" flak he gets in terms of hatred and judgment, which many here seem to have plenty to spare and generously spread.

No worries Hutton, Mel has his own church, you can do anything you want. Mel does!

That spousal support thing, that's a new slant, isn't it? Asking your 70+ year old wife to support you when your son is a multi millionaire. The Gibson's are just such a class act.

Funny that TMZ will talk about Mel Gibson's dad all day but never once mention Barack Obama's brother Samson raping a twelve year old girl in England.

Agenda much?

Google "Obama British Visa" Its the first New York Times link.

Devoute a s s h o l e, just like Mel. Funny how he wants her to pay spousal support and attorney fees. LOL Mel running a little low on cash, pop? Mel had to build his own church to do things only his way - maybe he'll let you live there.
