Mel Gibson Could've Been The Richest Actor In The World But His Ex-Wife Took Half Of His Money After Divorce

Date December 2, 2019

There's probably nobody who hasn't heard about Mel Gibson. He is so popular across the globe that it's hard to live without hearing his name and knowing his tremendous path to glory.

Besides, Mel Gibson's net worth is admittedly impressive, and he is one of the wealthiest celebrities in the Universe. Per 2019's estimations, the actor's fortune is roughly $425 million, making him of the most prominent actors of all time.

Mel Gibson's first wife

Mel Gibson's net worth was $850 million, but after divorce from his first wife, Robyn Moore, she took her half.

On December 24, 2011, the Mad Max star finalized his public divorce with Robyn Moore. According to legal reports, under California state, Mel Gibson's ex-wife was entitled to half of his assets since they didn't sign a prenuptial agreement back in 1980 when they got married.

The couple was married for 26 years of marriage, but five years before the divorce, they split when Gibson was detained for driving under the influence in Malibu. Albeit, Robyn Moore only filed for divorce, stating "irreconcilable differences" in April 2009 after he had publicly stepped out with a pregnant Oksana Grigorieva, with whom he has a daughter now.

The baby girl is an additional child for Mel since he had seven kids with his first wife.

The richest celeb is Oprah Winfrey, whose fortune is estimated at $2.4 billion. Yet, Mel Gibson's net worth is also impressive, as he is in the top 10 list of the wealthiest actors in the world.

What do you think about Mel Gibson's first wife? Was Robyn Moore right to take half of his assets after the divorce? Admittedly, the Hollywood actor is somewhat controversial and troublesome, was taking away half of the fortune? She's really lucky, huh!
