Mel Gibson has found a surprising ally in soon-to-be-ex-wife Robyn Gibson. Although the two are in the middle of divorce proceedings, she flew to his custody hearing in LA to defend his honor!

Mel Gibson better count his lucky stars! Although the disgraced actor has lost many fans and friends over his disgusting, abusive audio rants, the actor does have ONE person in his corner. The shocker? His sole supporter is estranged wife Robyn Gibson, whom he’s currently in the midst of divorcing!

Mel appeared in court today, July 15, to battle his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva for custody of their 8-month-old daughter, Lucia. The 40-year-old Russian pianist  alleges that Mel, 54, not  only threatened to kill her and punched out her two front teeth during a Jan. 6 altercation, but also abused their daughter, who was only two months old at the time.

However damning Oksana’s testimony may be, having Robyn in his corner will definitely help Mel. According to TMZ, Robyn filed a 1-page declaration this morning stating that the Australian actor is a great dad.  “Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage,” she writes. “Mel was a wonderful and loving father.”

This declaration will be submitted to the LA County Sheriff’s Department to help Mel’s lawyers when they present their evidence to the deputies.

As first reported, The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services has already started an investigation to make sure Oksana and Mel’s daughter is safe.
