Mel Gibson’s Stepmother Files Restraining Order Against Him

Mel Gibson's stepmother believes the actor manipulated his father into divorcing her.

This is a weird one. E! Online reports that Mel Gibson’s stepmother wants the actor to STAY away from her… because she believes he manipulated his father into divorcing her.

Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson (78) received divorce papers from 93-year-old husband John Hutton Gibson (Mel’s dad) and believes that Mel (and/or Mel’s sister)  had a hand in talking his dad into the split. The couple were married in 2001, the divorce papers were filed last month.

According to E! the attorney claims in the lawsuit: “Mel, his sister Maura, and Joye disagreed on Hutton’s medical care… And Mel made it clear that Joye’s views on anything were not welcome and only caused him to be irritated and were ignored.”

E! also notes that “Joye describes an alleged incident on May 2012 when Gibson became “incensed and began acting like a wild man” around her, and at one point while screaming, she “could feel his spit hitting” her face. Joye says the incident left her “nervous,” unable to sleep and caused her to lose weight. “

Mel’s stepmother claims the actor is very dangerous man and fears a physical assault. She is asking that Gibson stay 100 yards away from her.

There’s no denying Gibson knows his way around being incensed and throwing a tantrum. Could this be a legitimate concern, or a means of milking his already fledgling reputation for her own benefit?
