Back in October, Mel Gibson and his new bff Petra Ecclestone and her husband James Stunt all went out and spent $250K on champagne in one night even though Mel & James don't drink. Uh huh. Oh, and you read that number right. Of course Petra didn't pay the bill because daddy probably ended up paying it. When you have a house that costs upwards of $50M, then $250K for champagne is not a bad night.

Anyway, the trio went out again this past weekend but kept the bill way less. No one can figure out why the three hang out together all the time. My theory is that Mel wants her to finance a movie because he knows rule #1 when it comes to making movies. Never use your own money. He is about 100 years older than the couple so it would not seem they have anything in common unless she has an in with a bunch of European porn stars. She is from Europe so maybe she is acting as matchmaker for Mel.
