Mel Gibson, who's battled the bottle for years, is throwing a boozy St. Patrick's Day party at his church in Agoura Hills, east of Malibu, even though his wife Robyn worries it's a terrible idea, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The Oscar winning actor/director has previously said he's "battled the disease of alcoholism for all of his adult life." In 2006, he was arrested for a DUI, to which he plead no contest and was sentenced to 3 years probation.
The party, a fundraiser for the church, is planned for Sunday, March 15th at his private Holy Family Chapel.
Even though Gibson may not take a drink, a source says: "Robyn thinks serving booze at the party is a flat-out bad idea and that Mel is just asking for trouble."
The all-day bash will include kegs of beer and partiers can also bring their own liquor.
