Mel Gibson's wife Robyn wants a divorce



Tbd-melgibson041409 Mel Gibson's wife Robyn has decided that 28 years is enough crazy for one person, so she's filed for divorce, Us reports. She cited irreconcilable differences in papers filed April 9.

TMZ says that there's no prenuptial agreement, and a date of separation has yet to be announced, which is apparently important because California says earnings, which are usually split 50-50 in a divorce, are no longer shared when the couple separates. Robyn and Mel have seven children, including Tom, who turns 10 on Tuesday. Robyn is seeking joint physical and legal custody of the boy, their only minor child, spousal support and attorney fees,

"Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so," a rep for the 53-year-old actor/director told Us. We'll see how private the carving up of his fortune (about $900 million as of 2006) ends up being once the lawyers go at it.
