A PEOPLE source claims that the two have actually been separated for three years, having gone their separate ways following Gibson's 2006 DUI arrest. The infamous bust was accompanied by an anti-Semitic rant by Gibson.
TMZ sources say that the couple does not have a prenuptial agreement since they married in 1980, before Gibson's wildly successful acting career. Gibson's fortune was estimated at $900 million in 2006, and California laws would entitle Moore to 50 percent of his earnings and properties.

Moore's divorce attorney is Laura Wasser, who has represented Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears and Stevie Wonder in their divorce cases.
Gibson has stayed mostly out of the spotlight since his 2006 drunk driving arrest, during which he reportedly used anti-Semitic and sexist slurs towards the police officers arresting him.
The couple's split comes a month after photos reportedly of Gibson and Russian musician Oksana on a beach in Costa Rica surfaced on RadarOnline.com. Gibson was also tied to her late last year when she was said to have been spotted close to the set of the upcoming Gibson thriller 'Edge of Darkness.'
