Mel Gibson’s Former Old Mill Estate For Sale

It’s reported that the historic ‘Old Mill,’ former Greenwich, CT home of Mel Gibson is now back on the market with an asking price of $33 million. According to the reports, the 1926 estate is 15,862 square feet, includes 15 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms and sits on 75.7 acres. The landmark is one of the last Great Estates of Greenwich and was designed by architect Charles Lewis Bowman for financier George Lewis Ohrstrom. The Elizabethan-inspired Tudor home is majestically picturesue and showcases museum-uality details including 17th-century English paneling. The home’s great hall includes a 40-foot cathedral celining, walk-in fireplace and leaded glass windows. The grounds, designed by renowned landscape designer James Doyle, include formal gardens and a sculpted maze along with a terraced pool, tennis court, greenhouse, stable, staff houses, a log cabin and a stream-fed pond. Reports go on to say that Gibson purchased the home and later sold it in the summer of 2010 for $24 million. He initially listed the home at $39.5 million, but it sat for three years before he sold it at the reduced price.

Guess Who’s Getting Divorced?!

Mel Gibson!!! I don’t normally revel in people’s misery, but I kind of can’t help it. I’m still not over his “sugartits” comment, but I’ll be sure to let him know when I’ve moved on. Anyway…

His wife, Robyn, filed for divorce. The two have been married for 28 years and have seven kids, although only one is still a minor. The standard “irreconcilable differences” were cited as the reason.

The juicy part is that that the two reportedly don’t have a prenup, and California law says that they should split everything 50/50! She’s also asking for spousal support, joint custody of their 10-year-old son and attorney fees. Hell yes! Get yours, girlfriend!

Mel Gibson attended the 9th Annual Global Green Sustainable Design Awards in NYC yesterday, which sort of surprised me, because I had no idea the environment was one of his pet causes. I guess you learn something new every day, right?

Actor Mel Gibson has been following the rules of his probation for a DUI arrest during which he made derogatory remarks about Jews and women, his lawyer, Balir Berk, told a judge yesterday. The actor was not required to attend the hearing.

Berk provided Judge Lawrence Mira with documents showing the 51-year-old Gibson was meeting the terms of his probation. Gibson has been required to check in with the court periodically since his July 28, 2006, misdemeanor drunken driving arrest on Pacific Coast Highway.

The Judge was reportedly pleased with Gibson’s progress and scheduled his next hearing for February 15, 2008.

Berk had a very busy schedule today. After finishing up with Gibson’s hearing, she raced to Beverly Hills to negotiate a plea deal on behalf of Lindsay Lohan.
