Mel Gibson's Step-Mom

Wants Restraining Order


7/2/2012 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson THREATENED his own 78-year-old step-mom ... SPIT IN HER FACE ... and sabotaged her marriage ... this according to legal docs filed by the woman and obtained by TMZ.

Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson -- who married Mel's father Hutton Gibson in 2001 -- has filed for a restraining order against Mel ... claiming he exploded on her several times and now she fears for her safety.

In the docs, Joye claims Mel and his sister Maura hate her guts ... because she doesn't approve of the controversial medical treatments they've been pressuring Hutton to undergo to treat his various ailments.

In the docs, filed by attorney Brian J. Kramer, Joye describes several outbursts in detail:

October 2011 -- Mel screams at Joye because Joye does not approve of "experimental Ozone treatments" Hutton was undergoing for an undisclosed illness.

"Mel began yelling and saying, 'f*ck this and f*ck that' while leveling other extremely offensive language at me."

Joye claims Mel warned her "not to f*ck with [Hutton's] treatments in any way."

January 2012 -- While visiting Hutton in the hospital, Joye claims she said something that set Mel off ... and "Mel got up, looking wild and began yelling at me in a very loud and terrifying voice."

"Mel was so upset and screaming so fiercely that I could see his face turn red."

March 2012 -- Joye, along with Mel and his sister Maura, accompanied Hutton to Panama for stem cell treatment for his hip.

Mel was cooking food and offered some to Joye ... but she declined due to a stomach ache.

Joye claims, "Mel looked at me in disgust and said that I was insulting him by not eating. He then threatened that if I did not eat he would have me put outside."

May 2012 -- During a family meeting to discuss Hutton's health care, "Mel became incensed and began acting like a wild man."

Joye claims Mel began screaming right in her face ... noting, "He was so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face."

She claims Mel's eyes "looked as if they were bulging out of his head."

Joye claims she was paralyzed with fear and later vomited because of the incident.

In the docs, Joye claims Mel and his sister MUST have manipulated their ailing father into filing for divorce ... because Hutton is a devout Catholic and doesn't believe in divorce.  Plus, she claims Hutton recently penned her a love note claiming, "Our mutual love is permanent."

Joye claims Mel is even trying to force her out of her home ... because it's owned by a charity that Mel controls. Joye says she has no place else to go.

Joye wants a judge to block Mel from booting her from the home ... and prevent him from interfering with her attempts to communicate with her husband.

She also wants Mel to stay 100 yards away from her at all times.

Moments ago, a California judge decided, rather than issuing a temporary restraining order, to set the matter for a full hearing ... which has been scheduled for next month. 

No immediate comment from Mel's rep.

Miss Robin publicly supported MR MEL during the OG ordeal. I wonder if she'll come to his aide this time to discredit Miss Teddy claims about his verbal outbursts.
It would speak VOLUMES if ROBYN did step-up however I think that since she got her 1/2 of their wealth she wont defend his ass anymore.

I'm telling you, Mel has no control over his emotions and no ability to censor himself...just like a spoiled 4 year old child. It's called arrested development and he's going to end up very seriously hurt one day as a result of his intolerance for other people. Your boyish good looks have faded, Mel. Now you 're just an obnoxious ass.

More people need to take an interest in thier elderly parents these day's instead of forgetting they exist because they have health and other problems that age throw's thier way. If Huton doesn't want to die or can't decide himself then his
son needs to step in. When death is knocking on your door humanes usually don't want to open it.
I am glad Mel is watching out for his Father no matter what anyone thinks of Hutton that is his Father and he is a good Son.
All three of us need to go fishing.

Giblitz drew first blood by running to TMZ making accusations. He smeared her name and reputation and put it in the court of public opinion. He did the same thing with Ox and it came back to bite him in the ass - hard. In both cases, flock has condemned Gibby's 'enemies' without considering the other side of the equation. You know already that Gibby was supporting TJ financially and she wants to see Pappy dead.

You're losing it Ms. Kathleen. I NEVER said that TJ wanted Pappy DEAD! You are the one insinuating she's after Gibby $ and is trying to hasten Pappy's death! Are you insane? It's in black and white in this very thread ^^^^^.

Who are you calling a liar Ms. Kathleen?

Of course Karl's Jr. would find a weird, out of context response funny.

I think someone should look into who is behind the stepmother. Someone her age doesn't need a lot of money but if she has kids from another marriage then those are the ones I would be looking at. They are probably the ones telling her to do what she is doing.

When considering Mel Gibson - good or bad, you have to consider the Aussie angle - If you have ever met a trashy Aussie - Or thug-Aussie, like what's depicted on the Melbourne gang wars of the late 90's into 2004 "Underbelly" you get the cultural aspect to what makes Mel - Mel. Aussie binge drinker, Type-A, Alpha to the Max, Woman hater/beater and of course anti-Semite.

Other than that, Mel's cool.

Been there done that only didn't have the knowledge our father was being abused nor the money to intervene until it was too late Stay Strong Mel

The Flock as per usual fails to recognize that the "ALLEGATION" of ELDER ABUSE are from CAMP GIBBY (pssst - that's the same camp that claimed extortion and baby shaking).
If there was abuse why did Mr Mel just have Miss Teddy hauled off? Was he being "NICE"? I call BS.
This whole thing will quickly go away once Mr Mel uses his POTC$ to "take care of business".
