Mel Gibson: Restraining Order Sought this time from his estranged stepmother.

Mel Gibson's estranged 78-year-old stepmother has asked a court for a restraining order, claiming he is violent towards her.

Teddy Gibson is embroiled in a bitter divorce from Gibson's father John, whom she married in 2001.

Her court papers state: "Mel has sunken to new lows over the last year by committing several acts of domestic violence".

The petition accuses Gibson of screaming at his stepmother after she questioned his preference for medical treatment in the care of his 93-year-old father.

John Gibson filed for divorce from his wife in June, citing irreconcilable differences.

In her filing, Teddy Gibson claims she does not know why and needs the restraining order to talk to him without Mel Gibson present.

In a sworn statement accompanying the legal action, Teddy Gibson claimed: "There are a lot of questions about (John Gibson's) filing of divorce against me.

"I need to speak directly to my husband without Mel's interference so that I can make sure both he is OK and not being manipulated by Mel or into a course of action he does not wish to take."

A spokesman for the actor had no comment on the request for the order. Read More
