The US tabloid National Enquirer has reported that Mel Gibson has been indulging in cocaine and booze binges and has had torrid extramarital affairs.
According to newsweek.com, Gibson had recently apologised for his recent behaviour where he ranted off anti-Semitic comments when arrested for drunk driving.
The magazine went on to claim that Gibson's religious fanaticism hid a dark, desperate soul who was capable of rage and bigotry. This was helped by his alcohol addiction, drugs and women.
A friend says: "Mel is his own worst enemy, His downfall has revealed a complicated, seedy secret life he kept from everyone."
