Hollywood star Mel Gibson is being sued for USD 65,000 by stepmother Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson.

Teddy,78,who married the actor’s father Hutton Gibson in 2001 and is currently locked in a divorce battle with him,claims Mel is responsible for their break-up after her spouse filed for divorce and forced her to leave her marital home in June,reported TMZ online.

Earlier this month she filed for a restraining order against Mel,alleging the “Braveheart” star had threatened her and tried to sabotage her marriage.

In legal documents,Teddy said,”Mel and his sister Maura have a grudge against me because I don’t approve of controversial medical treatments they have been urging my husband to undergo for his various illnesses.

“They also manipulated their ailing father into filing for a divorce,something which my devout-Catholic spouse wouldn’t usually agree to.”
