His romantic life

All those roles made his fans see him as an “action hero.” However, he proved to have a soft side, as well, as he was married to Robyn Moore for several years.

Unlike most relationships in Hollywood, Mel and Robyn tied the knot in 1980, and stayed together for over two decades! Unfortunately, they parted ways in 2006, soon after he was arrested for drunk driving in Malibu.

Robyn eventually filed for divorce in April 2009, about one month after Mel appeared on a beach embracing Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva. The process was finalized in December 2011. Mel and Robyn have six sons and one daughter together.

While Mel and Oksana were a couple, they had one daughter, Lucia. However, their relationship ended in 2010 after the musician claimed that Mel had punched her in the face “more than once.”
