Yeah, we're kinda surprised this hasn't happened sooner too!
Mel Gibson's long-suffering wife Robyn has filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
The divorce papers were filed in Los Angeles on April 10th.
Robyn could walk away with a pretty big chuck of Mel's estimated $900 million fortune. The couple have been married since 1980 and do not have a pre-nuptial agreement.
The former couple have 7 children, but just one son, 10-year-old Tom, still lives at home. Robyn is asking the court for joint custody.
Powerhouse divorce attorney Laura Wasser (she was Britney's divorce lawyer) is repping Mel's soon-to-be ex wife.
Stay tuned - this one is going to be interesting!!!
