Mel Gibson’s 93-year-old father has filed for divorce from his wife of over 10 years on allegations of elder abuse.
On May 31, Mel Gibson##Q##s father John Hutton Gibson filed divorce documents in Los Angeles Superior Court for irreconcilable differences from Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson. He stated the date of separation as May 28.
Hutton Gibson requested that the court terminate its jurisdiction to award spousal support and that Teddy be responsible for all attorney fees.
TMZ is reporting that Hutton is seriously ill and on many medications and that his soon-to-be ex-wife wants to accelerate his death by discontinuing all of his medications. Apparently, Teddy believes Hutton wants the same, but because of this, Hutton and Mel Gibson believe they can slam her with charges of elder abuse.
Although Hutton and Teddy have no children together, Hutton had 11 children with his previous wife, Anne, who died in 1990, and over 50 grandchildren.
