I think it’s safe to say Mel Gibson’s reputation is officially thrashed for good. His own mother is afraid of him! Okay, she’s his ex-stepmother – as of last month – but still. Seriously?
Seventy-eight-year-old Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson filed for a temporary restraining order this week from her 56-year-old infamous former stepson. Teddy claims she is afraid of Mel, saying he is “a very dangerous man” and “it is only a matter of time before Mel crosses the line even further and physically assaults me.”
Teddy’s retraining order requests that Mel remains at least 100 yards away from her and that he "not block or interfere with my attempts to communicate with my husband, Hutton Gibson."
To Mel’s credit (not that he’s shown in recent years that he has or deserves any), Teddy and his father are technically in the process of divorcing. After almost ten years of marriage, Hutton filed for divorce last month, citing “irreconcilable differences” (of course). The divorce papers cited May 28th as their date of separation and requested that the court terminate its jurisdiction to award spousal support to Teddy. As a final knife in the side, Hutton also requested that Teddy be responsible for all attorney fees.
Teddy claims the divorce filing “blind-sided” her, and she feels Mel and his sister convinced their father to file for it. In her declaration, Teddy said that Mel “and/or his sister manipulated her husband into filing the divorce actions against Joye.”
Joye’s lawyer further explained, "Mel, his sister Maura, and Joye disagreed on Hutton's medical care, and Mel made it clear that Joye's views on anything were not welcome and only caused him to be irritated and were ignored."
Teddy described an incident that occurred in May, where she claims Mel was “incensed and began acting like a wild man,” toward her. Teddy claims he was screaming at her and she “could feel his spit hitting” her face. Obviously, the event left her a bit “nervous” and she claims she was unable to sleep or eat.
Mel’s mother, Anne, died in 1990, one year before his father married Teddy. Mel is the sixth child of 11 between Hutton and Anne. He is, however, the leading Gibson child for bad temperament and bad press.
