People mag reports that Mel Gibson and his wife of nearly 30 years, Robyn Moore, are kaputski. The couple released the following statement: "Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so." Gibson met Moore, at the time a dental nurse, in the late 1970s after the American-born actor, who moved to Australia when he was 12, had filmed his breakthrough success, "Mad Max." The pair, both now 53, married on June 7, 1980, and have seven children – Hannah, 28, twins Edward and Christian, 26, William, 24, Louis, 21, Milo, 19, and Thomas, 9. Gibson, whose wealth has been estimated at $900 million, was in Boston last year shooting "Edge of Darkness."
