Mel Gibson’s agent, William Morris Endeavor, has dropped the actor in light of Gibson’s recent headlines surrounding his personal life, The Hollywood Reporter reports. The actor was repped by Ed Limano, who passed away last week.

On Thursday, the actor became the target of a domestic violence case opened by the L.A. Sheriff Office. Gibson also accused ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva of trying to extort money from him by threatening to release taped recordings.
