4. Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore
Even though everybody knew what had become of a 31-year marriage between Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore, the couple still used the “irreconcilable differences” cliché to hide the fact that the divorce was as a result of Mel fathering a child with one, Oksana Grigorieva.
The couple had been married for 31 years and had seven children together and so Moore bitterly felt betrayed when Mel went behind her back and fathered a child with another woman. So when it came to divorce settlement, Moore walked away with $425 million, as well as 50% of the pension benefits they had built up during their marriage.
In the aftermath of their divorce, Mel found himself in the tabloid press for wrongs reasons such as when he drunkenly ranted at a police officer or when he foolishly claimed that “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” Was Moore the calming factor in the marriage? We’re yet to find out.
