(Newser) – You know what they say about a woman scorned. Mel Gibson’s former mistress wants to help his wife, Robyn, win her divorce battle, the Daily Star reports. Comedian Diana Alouise told the Globe she and Gibson “had a hot love affair based on sex, alcohol and partying,” but only because Gibson told her he was separated from his wife. Now, Alouise wants to make it up to her.

“If she had to prove that he cheated on her so that she could get the settlement, then I would help her. I would stand up in court and do what I needed to do,” Alouise said. “I still wonder why Robyn stayed with him through it all, but one thing I’m certain of is that she should get half of his fortune. She deserves it.” (Read more Mel Gibson stories.)
