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.

50 grand kids whoa!
That's a whole lotta Christmas stockings to stuff, and a big gift bill, but I bet they never have a boring Christmas with that many kids around.

As a devout Catholic, he should know that divorce is not allowed...let alone two times. But, he is the typical religious bigot who talks the talk; but, doesn't walk the walk.

There might be dementia or something else going on. It is common to ask for divorce when at that age with some sort of mental detachment.

Very lucky woman, 93 yr old husband wants a divorce; he is probably getting senile.
