Mel Gibson sued by stepmother for $65,000

Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson filed for a restraining order against Mel Gibson.

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.”
