78-year-old Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson (Stepmother of Mel Gibson and wife of his father Hutton Gibson) will sue Gibson as she holds him responsible for her break-up with her husband. It was reported by TMZ, a gossip website that Ms Gibson will sue Mel Gibson for $65,000, which will cover the legal bills from both her divorce and a court order that will force him to let her into the marital home.
According to Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson (she married 93-year-old Hutton Gibson in 2001), Mel Gibson along with his sister Maura were against her since she did not approve of a particular controversial medical treatment that they wanted Hutton Gibson to undergo. Teddy accused the siblings of manipulating their ailing father into filing for a divorce and kicking her out of her house in June 2012. According to her, her husband being a devout-Catholic would never have agreed to divorce her.
Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson also claimed that Hutton Gibson recently wrote a love note that said, "Our mutual love is permanent."
