Mel Gibson enjoyed a dinner with Petra and Tamara Ecclestone last night (08.08.12) as the trio dined out at exclusive Hollywood restaurant, Boa.
The billionaire sisters are known for their extravagant lifestyle and Petra recently bought Candy Spelling's Beverly Hills home for $85 million.
And it seems Mel could do with some cheering up after it was revealed last month how he is being sued by his stepmother.
Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson - who married the actor's father Hutton Gibson in 2001 - claims Mel is responsible for their break-up after her spouse filed for divorce and kicked her out of their home in June.
Teddy, 78, is suing Mel for $65,000 to cover the legal bills from both her divorce and a court order forcing him to let her into the marital home.
She also filed for a restraining order against Mel, alleging the 'Braveheart' star had threatened her and tried to sabotage her marriage.
