Mel Gibson's divorce from Robyn 'nearly' complete

Wednesday June 29, 2011

Mel Gibson and his estranged wife have almost finalised their divorce, an attorney for Robyn Gibson has said.

Attorney Laura Wasser told a judge on Tuesday that the pair have resolved all their issues and are doing some "final polishes" on the paperwork.

She said the couple – pictured together in 1997 - should have a judgment ready by August 30.

Mel's attorney agreed with the attorney's assessment.

Estranged wife Robyn filed for divorce in April 2009, just months before the Oscar winner's then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva gave birth to a daughter.

He indicated in court filings that the couple separated in 2006.

No details of how Mel and Robyn's assets will be divided were discussed, and the attorney indicated those details would remain private.

The former couple, who wed in 1980 - have seven children together, one of whom is under the age of 18.
