Mel Gibson is paying a $425 million divorce settlement to Robyn Moore.

This divorce was initiated by Robyn in 2009 the day after Mel Gibson was arrested for drinking and driving in Malibu (when he gave his infamous anti-Semitic rant). The filing followed plenty of accusations of bigotry, misogyny and general insanity.

Gibson managed to follow this up with accusations of domestic violence from his new girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Grigorieva, the mother of one of Gibson's kids made the accusations which led to a custody dispute over their child. Gibson pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge and completed counciling and community service. He also paid her $750,000 and gave her a $2.4 million mansion in California.
