This just in: Mel Gibson is kind of crazy. Okay, you already knew that, but here’s the latest reason why. His own stepmother has filed a restraining order against him.
78-year-old Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson filed the restraining order against Mel, alleging that he verbally terrorized her on several occasions and destroyed her relationship with Mel’s dad, 93-year-old Hutton Gibson. Joye claims that Gibson and his sister, Maura, hate her, primarily over disagreements regarding Hutton’s health, notes TMZ. Of course Joye might be crazy herself, since Hutton filed for divorce from her back in June, alleging that she abused him. But then, Hutton might also be kind of crazy, so who really knows what is going on over there.
Regardless, Joye is firing back, saying that Gibson once screamed at her “so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face” and “began acting like a wild man.” She was paralyzed with fear and later vomited after the incident, reports the Huffington Post.
The documents go way deeper, detailing several incidents between Gibson and Joye in detail.
He warned her on one occasion, “not to f*ck with [Hutton's] treatments in any way.” At another time, he was cooking her a meal, which she declined. “Mel looked at me in disgust and said that I was insulting him by not eating. He then threatened that if I did not eat he would have me put outside,” she claims.
She also alleges that Hutton, a devout Catholic, would not divorce her and that both Gibson and sister Maura have manipulated him into doing so. Joye also says that Gibson is trying to force her out of her home.
She’s asking for a restraining order that would put 100 yards between the two at all times. Instead of issuing a temporary restraining order against Gibson, a judge has decided on a full hearing, set to take place next month.
So what say you? Is Gibson a nut or is Joye a manipulator? Sound off below.
