Mel Gibson'a lawyers say they're submitted a settlement offer to estranged wife Robyn , and they are "optimistic" they will reach a settlement next month . But there's a big unresolved issue -- Mel's 2006 anti-Semtic rant and his 2010 tirade against blacks, women and others have ruined one of the biggest assets in the marriage.
It sounds strange , but the "good will" of a famous person is considered an asset in the marriage -- something that has commerical value . In the past Mel had a lot of "good will" that translated into being able to make movies that people would have to pay to see.
But after Mel's 2006 and 2010 rants , the "good will" has evaporated if not disappeared . As a result ... the asset has been greatly devalued .
It's said one of the issues is whether Mel should have to pay Robyn for squandering his "good will."
The same principles applies to paying spousal support . Mel has an argument that he's not really making much money anymore so he shouldn't have to pay support . But there's a counter -- argument ... Robyn should not suffer because Mel screwed up.
My spin : Another douche bag cheater....and this one is a bigot as well and it's about time he pay his dues...take him to the cleaners Robyn.
Is it just me or is Mad Mel Gibson gradically turning into 'Boris Karloff" ???
