Mel Gibson's rants have targeted a Jewish cop, an A-list screenwriter, and an ex-girlfriend. But a 78-year-old mum?

His own step-mother, Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson, is asking a judge for a restraining order against Mel Gibson because, she claims, he has a history of verbal rage that has her scared. He also allegedly threatened to kill ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, she alleged.

Of course, it's a little more complicated than that, as the L.A. Superior Court request, obtained by the Weekly, seems to spell out:

Said step-mother has been kicked out of a house (at 30130 Mulholland Highway in Agoura) owned by the actor and once called a happy home by her and his dad, 93-year-old Hutton Gibson. Hutton filed for divorce after 11 years in June, according to her court request.

Hicks Gibson said it was part of a long-standing effort by Mel go get her out of their life and manipulate his father, particularly when it comes to his medical treatment, according to the restraining-order request filed today (see embedded copy below).

She says he blew up on multiple occasions, "terrorizing me," according to the filing:

-In 2011, when she suggested alternate treatments for Hutton, Gibson allegedly yelled at her, saying, "Fuck this and fuck that" and said she "should not fuck with his treatments in any way."

I do recall that Mel threatened me and screamed at me ...

-In another instance, at a clinic where dad was being treated, Mel allegedly "began yelling at me in a very loud and terrifying voice," Hicks Gibson said:

... I flinched out of fear based on the way that he was yelling at me ... that he was about to strike me.

-On another occasion, in March, Hicks Gibson claims, Gibson threatened during mealtime that if she did not eat "he would have me put outside."

-In May, during a family meeting, Gibson allegedly started "acting like a wild man," according to the filing:

At one point, Mel rushed towards the table I was sitting at ... and got inches within my face ... I could feel his spit hitting my face ... His eyes looked as if they were bulging out of his head.
