Are You Okay?
Long before he was winning Oscars -- or making headlines for all the wrong reasons -- road warrior Mel Gibson was doing battle with an unseen, off-screen foe: bipolar disorder. Known for his onset pranks and proclivity for after-hours partying, Gibson broached the subject during a 2002 documentary interview with a former classmate. "I had really good highs but some very low lows," Gibson told filmmaker Sally McKenzie for "Acting Class of 1977," which aired on Australian television in 2008. "I found out recently that I'm manic depressive." Numerous articles have been written, linking bipolar mood disorder with artistry. In 2008, a study at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that those with the condition expressed "enhanced creativity," but recommended more research to determine why.

During his custody battle with Oksana, Gibson was diagnosed with a severe bipolar disorder and rage issues, a source close to the actor tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. Mel began taking psychiatric medication to cope with his anger issues and he was seeing a psychiatrist during the custody battle and that was how he was able to hold it together.
“It’s clear to me from listening to the recently released tapes that he most likely isn’t taking his medication, which is sad because when he was taking it he was so much calmer and rational,” the source tells RadarOnline.com.
Gibson was ultimately charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly hitting Oksana, and he pled no contest.
