But lately he's become known more for his scandals than his career. He and Robyn separated only days after Gibson's notorious 2006 arrest for drunk driving when he launched an anti-Semitic tirade.

In March, he pleaded no contest to a battery charge stemming from a 2010 altercation with former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and was sentenced to three years probation as well as domestic violence and mental health counseling.
