WME drops Mel Gibson

Move follows recent scandal, death of Limato

Scandal-plagued thesp Mel Gibson has been dropped by his agency WME.

Move comes on the day that an embarassing phone recording said to be of Gibson surfaced online. WME sources say that a decision to release the client was made earlier in the week in the wake of the death Saturday of Gibson’s longtime agent Ed Limato. But WME didn’t want the news to break amid the mourning period for Limato out of respect to the veteran agent.

Gibson’s publicist characterized the split as mutual.

It is unclear where the actor-director will land.
