Report: Mel Gibson Fleeing The Country (UPDATE)

Is Mel Gibson attempting to flee the country in the hopes of escaping the phenomenally bad press surrounding him since a series of abusive phone conversations between himself and former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have been made public? Um, maybe?

Britain’s the Daily Mail is reporting that Gibson has sold his New York mansion for more than $10 million less than the asking price and is in the process of doing the same with his Malibu home. Whether these sales are actually connected to Gibson’s recent troubles is not clear. According to the website Luxist, the New York home actually sold back in April, and the Malibu home has been on the market since March.

The Daily Mail is also reporting that Gibson and his ex-wife Robyn, with whom he has seven children, have been re-united: “A source close to the family said: ‘Oksana’s allegations have united Mel and Robyn and this move is her idea. She is shocked and furious at this woman’s lies and their seven children are shocked. Robyn has never seen a violent side to him.” I think the only conclusion we can draw with any certainty from this story is that wherever Gibson ends up and with whomever it won’t be far enough away to escape the Internet.

UPDATE: Gossip Cop is reporting that Mel Gibson is NOT moving out of the country. Read the full story here.
