On Friday, December 23, two days before Christmas, Mel Gibson officially became a single man – and his ex-wife became a very rich single woman, People reports.

In what was expected to be one of the “biggest divorce settlements in Hollywood history,” Robyn Moore, who filed for divorce from her actor hubby over two years ago, walked away with half of Gibson’s estimated $850 million plus entitlement to “half of every future check Gibson receives for the rest of his life.”

Ironically, Gibson, who met his future wife and mother of seven children soon after filming Mad Max, will sit for a Q&A during an event on January 21 where they will screen the 1979 film – in addition to the Max sequels – that propelled him to superstardom in America.
