Mel Gibson and his wife of nearly 30 years, Robyn Moore, have filed for divorce, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple released the following statement: "Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so."
Gibson met Moore, at the time a dental nurse, in the late 1970s after the American-born actor, who moved to Australia when he was 12, had filmed his breakthrough success, Mad Max. The pair, both now 53, married on June 7, 1980, and have seven children – Hannah, 28, twins Edward and Christian, 26, William, 24, Louis, 21, Milo, 19, and Thomas, 9.
They've been married forever and have a million kids, so why now? I guess she doesn't like to be called sugartits anymore. Sad.
