After 28 years of marriage, Robyn Moore filed for divorce in April 2009 — but it took more than two years for her to reach a settlement with her estranged husband, Mel Gibson.
According to reports, Moore’s lawyer appeared before a judge Tuesday morning to announce that the former spouses have reached a full agreement regarding the terms of their divorce (including property settlements). Their lawyers are expected to turn in their final paperwork in August, making their divorce official.
Though the terms of their settlement have yet to be revealed, it’s been reported that the couple did not have a pre- or postnuptial agreement. As a result, “any income earned or property purchased during the marriage is considered communal property,” an L.A. divorce attorney said.
What was at stake? Besides owning three homes in Malibu purchased for more than $16 million combined, Mel Gibson, 55, snapped up an island in Fiji and a ranch in Costa Rica. (Between 2004 and 2007, he sold properties in Montana, Connecticut and Australia for more than $46 million total.)
Additionally, Gibson, who once commanded up to $25 million per role, has also appeared in more than 40 movies and directed another four flicks. He also rakes in cash from his Icon production company — $800 million from 2004’s The Passion of the Christ alone.
In the meantime, Mel is also in court with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, locked in a battle over custody arrangements for their 2-year-old daughter, Lucia.
