Mel Gibson's ex-wife has been awarded a massive 271million pound payout in what is thought to be Hollywood's biggest-ever divorce deal.
 
Ending the 30-years marriage, mother-of-seven Robyn was handed half of the Braveheart star's total fortune because they did not have a pre-nuptial agreement.
 
Robyn, who has reverted to her maiden name of Moore, filed for divorce from the 55-year-old actor after pictures emerged of him frolicking on the beach at their Costa Rica holiday home with Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva.
 
Robyn will also receive half his fees for the films he made during their marriage.
 
According to court papers, the couple have made private arrangements for the support of their 12-year-old son Thomas, their only minor child, the Mirror reported.

The previous costliest Hollywood divorces are Neil Diamond's 95 million-pound settlement with Marcia Murphy and Steven Spielberg's 64 million-pound payout to Amy Irving in 1989 after being married for just four years.
