Mel Gibson
's father -- who filed for divorce Monday -- believes his wife has been abusing him, and Mel has jumped to his dad's aid ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Mel and his family have been tending to 93-year-old Hutton Gibson, who is seriously ill with a panoply of ailments.  Hutton is taking a slew of medications for his conditions, but we're told his wife, Teddy Joye (who is in her 70's) believes her husband's family is prolonging his suffering and wants to discontinue all medicines to accelerate his death.  She also believes that's what Hutton wants.

We're told Mel has taken the lead to ensure his dad is getting his meds, and believes Joye is guilty of elder abuse by her conduct.  Sources say Mel wants Joye out of his dad's house -- stat.

As we first reported, Hutton personally filed for divorce and even signed the divorce docs in shaky handwriting.

We're also told Joye is going to fight it out with Mel -- possibly in court.

The animosity between Mel's family and Joye is intense.

L.A. Kings Fans

Taunt N.J. Devils

With 'Jersey Shore'


L.A. Kings fans taunted their rivals with blown up images of the Jersey Shore castIt was a real "puck you" to the New Jersey Devils Monday night, as L.A. Kings fans taunted their rivals with blown up images of an even famous-er N.J. franchise -- the cast of "Jersey Shore."

Devils players may not have gotten the joke, since 18 are not even American, but fans sure did.

In the end, Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D and Jwoww may have been L.A.'s secret weapon, because the Kings won 4 zip, which puts them 1 game away from their first Stanley Cup.

Finally, Snooki and Sitch did something useful.

No one over 80 should be on multiple drugs at taxpayer (Medicare) expense. Pain management meds is all anyone should get after 80. Man up and go to the light already, Mr Gibson, you resource-sucking *****.

I've been through the same thing with my dad and his second wife. He fell and complained about his chest hurting - his wife claimed all he wanted was sympathy - we wound up in the emergency room about week later and my dad had seven broken ribs.

Who cares that the Nazi-lover dad is being abused - not me! Nor would I care if the Nazi-lover's son was
being abused.

Things aren't always as they seem. If you have ever cared ( been a caretaker) of an elderly person, you will realize that they can also be led very easily. Not saying this is the case here but ::::

When anyone especially the elderly are taking several medications, there is a need for a medical reevaluation of the patient. Many of the medications taken by the elderly often have serious side effects when taken together especially if the patient is losing his/her appetite. I suggest a thorough discussion is in order with all concerned parties and making sure everyone gets heard!

Anything that Gibson is part of, should be scrutinized, he is not a trustworthy person. Maybe she is or isn't abusive, can't answer that. Maybe Gibson just wants her out of the way so he and Dad can get looped together
