Mel Gibson landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday afternoon, and the 58-year-old actor was in a great mood when X17 photographers snapped his picture. Judging from the tan, the beard and the relaxed clothes, we're thinking he just got back from his estate in Costa Rica...
And speaking of Costa Rica, apparently the actor is upset with the municipality of Nicoya for looking into a way to open a roadway to connect the beaches of Barrigona and Barco Quebrado. So what's the problem? Though there are currently public roads that give folks access to both of the beaches, apparently there's no infrastructure between them, and the area where Mayor Marco Antonio Jimenez Munoz wants to build a road is right next to the beachfront property owned by Gibson.
Jimenez told reporters that Gibson has closed access in an “irregular and improper way” and that “this is absolutely illegal” as the land belongs to the municipality. The mayor added that he's been trying to get in touch with Gibson and his reps regarding opening the passage “but they say they are not in agreement.” The other problem is that Gibson's 500-acre estate is currently for sale for $29.75 million ... and we're guessing potential buyers don't want to deal with this either.
Sounds like a mess ... no wonder Mel is happy to be back home!
