Documents obtained by TMZ revealed that the estranged couple settled their differences long ago, but a judge only signed off on the divorce this week.
Gibson, 50, is ordered to pay $3,000 a month in support for the couple’s three children (daughter Agatha Marie and sons James Parker and Travis Carter), as well as foot the bill for their private school tuition. The actor will reside in the family’s home in San Antonio every other weekend when he has the children.
The “Dharma and Greg” star, who wed Christine in 1993, quietly filed for divorce in June 2014, claiming “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities … that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
In August 2013, Gibson fell victim to a Catfishing scheme, allegedly carrying on a two-year romance with a woman he met online. When Gibson learned that the mystery woman wasn’t who she said she was, his attorneys sent her a letter telling her to stop contacting him, TMZ reported.
After hearing from Gibson’s attorneys, the woman sent TMZ a video that Gibson allegedly recorded for her from a hot tub in December 2012. At the time, Gibson insisted that not only was the video heavily edited, but that he and his wife had been separated for more than two years when it was filmed.
A rep for Gibson declined to comment on his personal life.
