Available, but $425m lighter. Oh, and there's the racism issue: Mel Gibson

    Mel Gibson's divorce, finalized Friday, is most expensive (so far) in Hollywood. $425 million


    "Among Gibson's estimated [$850m] assets: more than $600 million grossed by The Passion of the Christ alone; $100-plus million in real estate investments worldwide (he bought an island in Fiji for $15 million in 2005); and $75 million for film and TV projects for which Gibson, 55, executive produced.

    "As for film residuals, Robyn is entitled to half of every future check Gibson receives for the rest of his life."

    Sign a prenup, you philandering bastards.

    He was married to her for a long, long time. I'm pretty sure they were married in 1980 before he was famous. Even if she had signed a pre-nup, she would have gotten the same amount minus the pennies he was probably paid for the first Mad Max film.

    At least now, he has his freedom.

    Maybe she hammered out an agreement like Michael Douglas' ex-wife where she gets half of anything he gets to do sequels.

    I friend of a friend works for Mel; he's said for years that Mel is quietly the wealthiest star in Hollywood.

    I guess these public figures prove it.

    He made hundreds of millions on "Passion of the Christ"

    He financed that himself and deservedly reaped the rewards...

    I've never understood the half of any future earnings. Why the hell should your ex get half of money made when you are already divorced?
