Mel Gibson's Dad and Elder Abuse Allegations - Hutton Gibson, 93, claiming elder abuse at the hands of his younger wife.
Hutton filed divorce papers last week to end his 10-year marriage to Teddy Joye. He claims his wife has been abusing him while he’s seriously ill and taking a slew of medications.
