Almost all details of the split were kept confidential, but reports say Moore stands to get a big pay-off from the divorce. Because there was no prenuptial agreement, it was ruled that Moore is entitled to half of everything the actor earned during their three-decade-long marriage, according to Entertainment Tonight. Gibson's fortune was once estimated by the Los Angeles Business Journal to be worth approximately $850 million.
Moore filed for divorce in April 2009, but Gibson alleged they had been living apart since 2006. That was the year Gibson was famously arrested for a DUI in Malibu and made anti-Semitic and misogynistic remarks to his arresting officers.
The Braveheart actor, 55, and Moore were married in 1980 and have seven children together, but their 12-year-old son is the sole minor and, therefore, the only one subject to a custody agreement.
Moore defended her estranged husband last year when he was engaged in an ugly custody battle with Gibson's girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, with whom he has a 2-year-old daughter, Lucia. Grigorieva accused Gibson of domestic violence after recordings were leaked of him allegedly yelling at her and threatening her. He pleaded no contest — but admitted no fault — to a misdemeanor battery count in March. Moore filed a brief declaration in the case stating that Gibson had never physically abused her or their children.
