Wow, it had only been three months without a Mel Gibson explosion ... things got boring there for a second.
Not anymore! TMZ is reporting that Mad Mel's step-mother Joye Gibson, who is 78, is seeking a restraining order against the "passionate" actor.
Born Teddy Joye Hicks, she claims the "Passion of the Christ" director has been using his "Lethal Weapon" (i.e. his mouth) to make her life a living hell, and is asking a judge to block Mel from evicting her from her home, to prevent him from sabotaging attempts to communicate with her husband, and for Mel to stay 100 yards away from her at all times.
100 yards is still well within screaming distance of Mel, that dude's voice carries.
Mel's 93-year-old dad Hutton Gibson, who is undergoing "experimental Ozone treatments" for an undisclosed illness, separated from Joye back in May, and strangely filed for her to pay him spousal support and attorney's fees. Joye Gibson also believes her son-in-law was instrumental in Hutton filing the divorce papers, since his pop is a devout Catholic whose religion forbids it.
While each incident described by her involves some sort of screaming outburst, no audio clips were provided to the media this time, probably because everyone in the world knows what Mel sounds like when he's spewing a science fair volcano of expletives.
Some of the vitriolic fire and brimstone the "Braveheart" actor pummeled the elderly woman with include warning her "not to f**k with [Hutton's] treatments in any way," "screaming so fiercely that I could see his face turn red," "He was so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face… Mel's eyes looked as if they were bulging out of his head."
You get the idea, the dude was peeved.
Perhaps the most disturbing quote is: "Mel looked at me in disgust and said that I was insulting him by not eating. He then threatened that if I did not eat he would have me put outside."
That reminds us of this screaming Mel Gibsonism from April's Joe Eszterhas tapes: "Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? You all had something to eat, HOOOORAY!!!"
