Mel Gibson Los Angeles, Nov 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) It seems Mel Gibson’s brief absence from the news is over. The “fallen” star is back in the new recently this time for a more noble cause. Reports have it that the actor has donated some $9 million to his church in the Malibu.

The church, Holy Family Church was solely built by the actor and he has donated around $60 million to the church. The reported that the donation to the church, which has a membership of some 100, will help boost the operations of the church. The website cited obtained documents as the source of the report and if it turns out true, then the star may not be as broke as he claims to be.

The actor’s former girlfriend last week filed a contempt case against the star for failing to pay the mandated $20,000 a month child support. Another issue that the Mel might be required to resolve is the issue of his former wife on the church’s list as an officer. If that is still true as claim is on the documents that they obtained, then the reason why her name is not on the church’s latest tax filing might need some explanation.
