Mel Gibson is under fire.
Teddy Joye Gibson says her stepson spit in her face, threatened her and ruined her marriage. Joye married Hutton Gibson, Mel’s father, in 2001. She has filed for a restraining order against Mel because she fears for her safety.
Joye says Mel and his sister Maura are angry with her because she doesn’t agree with the extensive medical treatments they’ve been forcing Hutton to undergo. Joye suspects Mel pressured his father to file for divorce. Hutton is a Catholic and doesn’t believe in divorce.
She claims Mel is trying to kick her out of her own home, which is owned by a charity under Mel’s direction. Joye is trying to get a judge to put a stop to that.
Joye’s documents include specific instances where Gibson has verbally assaulted her over the years as well as episodes of his outbursts.
She wants Mel keep his distance, staying 100 yards away from her. A hearing will be held next month to decide on the restraining order.
