Mel Gibson

Dad Files For Divorce

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

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.

Obviously, the Gibson's "devout Catholic convictions" only apply to everyone else, not themselves.

He's his own variety of Catholic. He and Mel aren't Roman Catholics. They have their own version of Catholicism which rejects the Pope and the Vatican. He's been more "married" to his daughter-in-law these past 30 years as everyone understands it. Mel's lived apart from his now ex. But his father lived with her and the grandkids all these years on some remote ranch in Australia. All very creepy if you ask me. And then Mel divorces so his father does, too, because they've each got massive identity, religious and sexuality problems (not to mention the hate of Jews, gays, blacks and women).

My, my, my. What do we have here flock? I know you're all lurking, but once again you're at a complete loss. Just like with the VS back door incident.

What's the game plan now? That he's too senile to know what he's doing? I doubt it. His faculties are sharper than Gibby's now. Either Gibby finally cut the huckster off for ruining his career or he has Gibby's blessing to punish this woman because she didn't live up to the religious standards they impose on WOMEN ONLY. Going after her retirement money like the professional leech he's always been. Both father and son are women haters cut from the same cloth. Both lower than a whale's belly.

I cant WAIT for TEAM MEL to show up and start trashing this poor woman....this should be VERY entertaining.....Gee, I wonder if Hutton's going after Mel's Ex OKSANA!!!!


LMAO 2is! I was just about to post on the old post that we're overdue for another 'egg on face' Gibnuts story. This one is priceless. The old coot must be pretty desperate to show his true stripes like this. The till must be running VERY dry. I predict another desperate money grab attempt from Jr. Like trying to go after Robyn"s settlement, or God forbid - the Reilly fund. : D

about catholicism and divorce, the truth is catholicism does not believe in getting married after a divorce.
Divorce is not forbidden when necessary.

Actually, the Catholic Church does believe in divorce. But the don't believe in remarriage. The moral transgression is when a person divorces a spouse and then remarries. It's the remarriage that is the hang up.
