MEL GIBSON had been accused of terrorizing his 78-year-old stepmom, celebrity news has learned.
What now, Mel?
Mel Gibson’s stepmother, Joye Gibson, who now plays another person whom the actor has traumatized, recently filed documents claiming that the actor made her fear for her life—a belief stemming from the fact that Mel “has a serious anger management problem if not perhaps a bipolar illness, for which he needs treatment”
Apparently Joye, who was served just with divorce papers by Mel‘s dad, Hutton Gibson, has engaged in countless arguments with the actor and his sister, Maura Dunne, regarding her keeping her very sick 93-year-old husband from taking his medication, as Joye believes they only prolong his suffering.
Not only that, she thinks the pair also coaxed and “manipulated” their father, a Catholic who doesn’t believe in divorce, into filing for divorce from her and that “Mel made it clear that Joye‘s views on anything were not welcome and only caused him to be irritated and were ignored.”
TMZ reported that she has accused the actor of domestic violence in the documents, with specific “violent tirades” which made her “fear that he will cause her serious bodily injury” dating back to last year:
“October 2011 — Mel screams at Joye because Joye does not approve of ‘experimental Ozone treatments’ Hutton was undergoing for an undisclosed illness. Mel began yelling and saying, ‘f*ck this and f*ck that’ while leveling other extremely offensive language at me.’ Joye claims Mel warned her ‘not to f*ck with [Hutton's] treatments in any way.’”
“January 2012 — While visiting Hutton in the hospital, Joye claims she said something that set Meloff … and ‘Mel got up, looking wild and began yelling at me in a very loud and terrifying voice.’ Melwas so upset and screaming so fiercely that I could see his face turn red.’”
“March 2012 — Joye, along with Mel and his sister Maura, accompanied Hutton to Panama for stem cell treatment for his hip. Mel was cooking food and offered some to Joye … but she declined due to a stomach ache. Joye claims, ‘Mel looked at me in disgust and said that I was insulting him by not eating. He then threatened that if I did not eat he would have me put outside.’”
“May 2012 — During a family meeting to discuss Hutton‘s health care, ‘Mel became incensed and began acting like a wild man.’ Joye claims Mel began screaming right in her face … noting, ‘He was so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face.’ She claims Mel‘s eyes ‘looked as if they were bulging out of his head.’ Joye claims she was paralyzed with fear and later vomited because of the incident.”
In addition to all of these, Joye also claims that the actor has tried to keep her out of the house, which is reportedly owned by the charity that Mel owns.
As a result, Mel could be required to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times and that he “not block or interfere with my attempts to communicate with my husband.”
A hearing has been scheduled next month.
Do you think Mel‘s stepmom will get the restraining order that she’s asking for?
