Mel Gibson reaches a settlement in divorce from Robyn Moore

Mel Gibson and estranged wife Robyn Moore have nailed down details in their long-running divorce case, slamming the door on those romantics who may have held out hope that post-Oksana Grigorieva, the parents of seven — wait, he's a parent of eight — might reconcile.

OK, "those romantics" were no doubt few and far between — especially given recent reports that Mel, 55, has a new "friendly acquaintance," Stella Mouzi, a 25-year-old fetish model who hails from Greece. (Have a type much, Braveheart?)

Attorneys told an L.A. judge Tuesday that Robyn and Mel had finally worked out a settlement regarding division of property and other assets valued at $900 million before the real estate crash, though no details were released. The divorce is expected to be finalized in August.

After 28 years of marriage, Robyn filed for divorce in April 2009, right about the time news broke that Grigorieva was pregnant with Mel's baby (Lucia was born that November). Mel said at the time that his marriage had effectively ended three years earlier.

Mel and Oksana subsequently ended their relationship quietly, with a breakup that began in April 2010, went through a few rough spots, and then calmly drew to a close in March when he entered a no-contest plea to misdemeanor battery and she learned that extortion charges against her would not be pursued.
