Mel Gibson made a 9.6 million dollars donation to a Catholic congregation in Los Angeles, informs radaronline.com.
RadarOnline.com has come into the possession of official documents showing that Mel Gibson has donated this sum to the Holy Family Catholic Church congregation through his AP Reilly Foundation.
The controversial Holy Family Church in Malibu, which was founded several years ago by the Australian actor himself, consists of only 100 members and has a fortune worth of 60 million dollars.
This donation will certainly embitter the Australian actor’s ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, who filed a complaint against Mel Gibson, in which she accused him of refusing to pay the alimony of $ 20,000 per month to their daughter, a sum that she was supposed to receive according to a decision made by a court in Los Angeles.
Oksana Grigorieva also said that she has come into the possession of audio recordings in which the Australian actor claims that he has no money and is close to bankruptcy.
In recent months, Mel Gibson has had serious problems with the Los Angeles police, which are investigating him for alleged assault committed against his former girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.
Mel Gibson is a practicing Catholic. He was raised in Australia and in the ‘90s he was one of the most popular and best paid actors in the world. He has won two Academy Awards for “Best Director” and “Best Film” in 1995 with the movie “Braveheart.” The famous director of “The Passion of the Christ” and Apocalypto” returned to the big screen in January after an eight year break with a role in the thriller “Edge of Darkness”.
