  • In a written declaration, Robyn Gibson defended her ex-husband, describing him as 'a wonderful and loving father'

    In a shocking move, Robyn Gibson, the soon-to-be-ex-wife of shamed Hollywood star Mel has stepped in to defend the star, describing him as ‘a wonderful and loving father’ in a declaration issued to court.


    Media mogul Mel has been engaged in a bitter custody dispute with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

    But the star has shocked the film industry after taped phone conversations containing a number of racist and violent outbursts towards his ex emerged.

    The Russian model also claimed Mel ‘knocked her teeth out’ during an argument, and bruised their eight-month old daughter, after lunging at her while she was holding the tot.

    And in fresh allegations released today, it’s claimed the actor even pulled a gun on Oksana when she refused to leave their mansion after a furious bust-up, telling her ‘I will show you how to get out of here fast,’ before she fled to the car.

    But now Mel’s soon-to-be-ex-wife, Robyn has waded into the argument.

    ‘Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage,’ Robyn wrote in a court declaration, TMZ revealed.

    She also described Mel as ‘a wonderful and loving father’.

    It’s thought the legal document, filed yesterday, will be submitted when Mel’s legal team present their evidence to court next week.
