Mel Gibson is poised to quit the US after selling his mansion near New York.
The disgraced Lethal Weapon star, who faces allegations of violence from his Russian former girlfriend, sold the mock Tudor property, known as Old Mill Farm, for £16 million – £10 million less than the asking price...Gibson has also put his Malibu home, Lavender Hill Farm, on the market for £10 million, according to a property newsletter.
He has told friends that he will move back to Australia - where he grew up after moving from America when he was 12 - with his ex-wife Robyn, who still supports him.
Gibson, 54, is ready to contest the allegations of Oksana Grigorieva, 40, who claims he punched her and hurt their baby, Lucia, in a drunken rage in January.
A source close to the family said: ‘Oksana’s allegations have united Mel and Robyn and this move is her idea.
I have to say it's probably the right thing to do. Hollywood is such a twisted place and he needs space to collect himself. He was married to Robyn for 28 years before he ran off with the russian putana, and may be there will be a reconciliation. Mel being a catholic, this would make sense. I can't blame him.
Lots of guys go through mid-life crisis's. Some get the expensive sports car, some fool around, and some just get depressed and even decide it's checkout time. Getting old sucks, but I guess it's better than the alternative.
I hope Mel gets help, stays clean, and keeps away from the idiots and idiocy of the world. It's the best he can do. Swing away Mel, Swing away...
