Mel Gibson’s father filed for divorce on Monday, claiming that his wife has been abusing him. Gibson immediately went to his dad’s defense.
According to sources, Gibson and his family are taking care of the 93-year-old Hutton Gibson, who is ill. Gibson’s father is taking medications for his illnesses, but his wife, Teddy Joye, reportedly believes that her husband’s family is prolonging his suffering. Joye claimed that her husband wants to stop taking all medications to speed up his death.
Gibson views Joye’s opinion as elder abuse and wants her out of his dad’s house.
Gibson’s father personally filed for divorce and signed the documents.
Some sources say that Gibson is taking Joye to court to fight it out.
