According to documents filed in Los Angeles on Monday, Teddy, 78, fears for her own safety. Among the complaints, Teddy says, "Mel became incensed and began acting like a wild man" when trying to discuss the health of her husband, Mel's father. "He was so close that I could feel his spit hitting my face." Teddy also claims Mel and his sister manipulated their father into filing for divorce.
Teddy is asking a judge to block Gibson from evicting her (the house is owned by one of Mel's charities) and that he remain 100 yards away from her at all times.
A hearing has been set for next month.
