More Trouble for Mel

Did you know that Mel Gibson and girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva split up earlier this year? They both have a daughter together who was born on October 30th of 2009.

It was on April of 2009 that Gibson and his wife of thirty years filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences for their break-up. Shortly thereafter, Mel Gibson's relationship with Oksana Grigorieva became public. Today, several media outlets report that Gibson has filed a restraining order against Oksana Grigorieva.

I'm not sure what to think of Mel Gibson anymore. He once gave me the impression that he was trying to be more Catholic than the Pope by rejecting both Papal authority as well as the reforms of Vatican II (let's not even talk about his father). Now I see him caught up in divorce and fathering a child with someone he has absolutely no intention of marrying.

Was it all just talk, Mel, this Catholic fire and brimstone exhortation? I'm not judging you. We're all sinners.

Gee, what a surprise. Not.

I feel bad for the baby and the family he dumped for this girl.

Sometimes I wonder if Satan wasn't very happy about the Passion movie and has thrown some extra temptations in Mel's way.

Tom - this is just typical alcoholic behavior. I wouldn't be surprised if she's not also an alcoholic - we know he is.

And he is clearly a "mean drunk" to boot.

Adrienne said...

oh yeah - poor baby...

Love the new look of your blog, Tom. Where did you get the Music Player?
I agree with Angela's comment about Satan picking Mel out for extra attention. May our Blessed Mother take pity on Mel and take him beneath the protection of her Mantle.

Angela-

I, too, feel bad for the baby. Seven months into this world and already in a family that's a mess.

Auntie A-

I never thought about the possibility that she, like him, could be an alcoholic. On Wikipedia, they quote him as having stated to drink when he was only thirteen.

Shirley-

Thanks. The player I got from the blog of an artist- a very talented one at that. Here's the website for the player:

I'm going with Adrienne here - the guy is just screwed up and it is so alcoholic behavior.

Terry Nelson said...

Yep and the mistress is co-dependant too - if not an addict. Oh - and the kid will be so screwed up, it won't be funny.

I had no idea he was an alcoholic. My ex started drinking at 13 as well and his emotional state is pretty much stuck at that age. It's sad for everyone. Lord, have mercy.

Terry-

I read an article that reports she is staying in his Malibu house, and that the restraining order was part of an effort to throw her out. There is obviously something in this fiasco that we don't know about, which might actually be a good thing. That poor infant I PRAY will be spared the childhood torment many celebrity children have suffered throughout their formative years.

Darn - I'm such a slacker. I waited until I was 15 to start drinking...
