Considering the multiple recordings released of Mel Gibson yelling at, swearing at, and threatening ex-girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Lucia, Oksana Grigorieva, it’s hard to imagine anyone would take the actor’s side. But, Gibson’s ex-wife of thirty years, Robyn Gibson, is doing just that.
Now, a friend of Mel’s says the actor wants Robyn–the mother of his seven other children–back. “Meeting Oksana Grigorieva and leaving his wife was the biggest mistake of Mel’s life,” the friend said. “Robyn and the seven children they have together are heartbroken to see what has happened to him.”
Since the couple split (after Grigorieva was pregnant with Lucia) in April 2009 they have kept in touch and shared responsibility of their children. Now, in the wake of Robyn’s statements in court insisting Mel never physically abused her, it seems the Mel is ready to return to her. “He knows his Hollywood career is over,” Mel’s friend said. “Now he just wants to return to Australia with his ex wife and children.”
But just because Robyn defended Mel in this massive scandal involving Grigorieva doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll want him back as a husband, or even a partner. Do you think Robyn should take Mel back?
