Mel Gibson and wife settle divorce

Mel Gibson has finalised his divorce from his wife of 28 years.

Attorneys for the Oscar winner and his ex-wife appeared briefly in a Los Angeles courthouse on Friday to submit a proposed judgment, which a judge signed hours later.

Robyn Gibson filed for divorce in April 2009, just months before Gibson's then girlfriend gave birth to a daughter.

The Braveheart star indicated in his own court filings that the couple separated in 2006.

The couple's divorce has been more low key than Gibson's custody battle with Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva. Gibson agreed in August to pay Grigorieva £481,000 to settle a bitter dispute and split custody of their daughter.

The 55-year-old and his former wife Robyn have seven children together but their 12-year-old son is the only one who is not grown up.
