Mel Gibson has been hit with a new lawsuit from his own stepmother.

The Braveheart star's father, Hutton, filed for divorce from wife Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson and kicked her out of their marital home in June, and now the 78 year old has accused the actor of causing the break-up.

According to documents filed in Los Angeles, Teddy is seeking up to $65,000 in damages to cover her legal bills and a court order forcing Mel to allow her entrance into the house, according to TMZ.com.

This is the latest in a string of legal woes for the family - Teddy filed a restraining order against the actor earlier this month over claims he threatened her and spat in her face.
