Mel Gibson's Step-Mom

Mel Better PAY

For My Divorce

Mel Gibson
's step-mother insists it's all Mel's fault she's getting divorced from the actor's father -- and now, she wants Mel to pay her legal bills.

Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson just filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court, asking a judge to make Mel a party in her divorce proceedings with Mel's father Hutton Gibson, who filed for divorce back in June.

According to the docs, filed by attorney Brian J. Kramer, Mel not only pushed his father to divorce Teddy -- he booted her from her marital home too ... and has been covering Hutton's legal bills.

As a result of his alleged involvement, Teddy wants a judge to order Mel to pay HER legal costs too -- which she estimates will be around $65,000. She says she has already spent $30,000.

Teddy also wants a judge to order Mel to let her back into her house. (As we reported, Teddy is already seeking a restraining order to block Mel from kicking her out, but that hasn't been ruled on yet).

And there's more ... Teddy wants $15,000/month in spousal support from Hutton -- an expense Mel would probably be footing.

There's a hearing today to rule on Teddy's latest request.

update_bar
1:45 PM PT -- The judge declined to rule today, setting a hearing on the matter for August. Hutton has also filed docs saying Teddy isn't entitled to money -- because she's got access to plenty of her own funds.

Caught up with what Tell? The story has no teeth. You would think that Gibby would let sleeping dogs lie, but I guess he's got to obsess and have an axe to grind about something. Maybe the TJ thing got an out if court settlement so he needs a new target.

It doesn't appear to me that Ox's lawyer needed the DA for anything, and no connection was even made in the article. It was the judge's decision to try the cases separately, which is standard practice. It apparently forced the DA to decide which case had more merit - which was a no brainer. He couldn't just F up high profile case like this. It could cost him his job. Not one bit surprised he had the LACSD breathing down his neck either.

This info about the 'witness' who claims Ox told her she would release the tapes is laughable. Where was this person 2 years ago? It wasn't a crime to release or even sell the Gibby rants. The point I've made all along was she stood to gain much more off of them from Gibby than Radar, and she was ready to go to trial. All this says to me is that she handed over the originals, through he attorney, and he probably made a nice payday off of them - selling them one at a time. Radar could have edited them for all flock knows. That's why she canned him. Her beef was she wasn't getting anything for herself, just child support. That 15 mil. probably had a million strings attached - one or more of which she didn't want. Knowing what a control freak Gibby is, it probably came on very hard terms.

They couldn't charge her with extortion because they had to prove she knowingly perpetrated an illegal act. Her lawyer was doing the same in mediation. They had evidence to put him away. Just because it was Gibby means it's extortion? Pffft! He's a regular person in the eyes of the law.

Her email to Gibby that they used as an example was pretty benign. She was defending herself mainly, and as I predicted she mentioned threats (in the form of lies) from Gibby's lawyers to publicly shame her. I guess they couldn't come up with a REAL laundry list of crimes and lies - or else they would have used them!


Her new attorney did what her fired one should have done from the start - filed for a RO, like TJ's lawyer did. Then she could have gotten punitive damages for herself. Maybe he didn't realize that Gibby was broke and it busted their case.

Gibby heard that the deputy DA's have an axe to grind with Cooley on something totally unrelated and tried to exploit it. 'a witness who attended the mediation said'. 'a witness told the sheriff's dept'. blah blah bleh. Horse sh*t.

BRAVO to Cuj for post # 95 - WELL SAID! I especially like how you point out the "witnesses" WHERE WERE THEY 2 years ago? Something that will leave the flock stunned and at a total loss for words....
.
If you ask me, this "story' from THE BEAST is well planted as Gibby is facing a RO (if not slapped with it already) and has found himself in the middle of a divorce case where he has NO Business! Since he's looking SO SILLY one is lead to believe the BEAST story is yet another attempt at salvaging what's left of his tattered image (look at me the victim)

Another thing that you mentioned Cuj is this BEAST story has no teeth. EXCELLENT POINT. If there was any substance why are other new sources not running a similar story? LA Times, TMZ, ROL? They have all covered at least 1 aspect of the mess Gibby created but only THE BEAST is covering this "new" thing?

AAAHAHAHAHHAHA! Sparkles and Le Snort!

Hey Cuj,
.
I'm beginning to think Mr Mel got slapped with a R.O. Had Mr Mel NOT been slapped with the RO - "REALIST" would have appeared to make it known that there was no RO issued.
.
Since nothing's been leaked (one-way or the other) we can pretty much draw the obvious conclusion!

Bring it. Not everyone is going to conform to flock opinions without thinking for themselves. If you don't like it - well that's too damn bad.

A hater is the type of person who heaps abuse on someone for nothing - like what we heard on the Gibby tapes. Flock never explained why they thought Ox deserved it and still don't have an answer. Flock just spewed hateful things about her for months with ZERO compassion. Now that Gibby keeps F'ing up and proving you wrong, all you can do is stew and spew. Still looking like the haters to me, and to others as well. Enjoy!

Gee, what interesting stuff happens when I take a few days off.


For Cuj: It was reported today on the TV news about a kitten with 24 toes. Name of Little Bub. Does Pyewacket get close? Do you need me to provide the link for you?


R/O hearing was postponed until 8/13. Ms. Teddy Joye is now in Pro Per. Does anyone need the link?
