The Fast & Furious star split from his former partner, Norma, in 2009 after two years of marriage and the former couple has since been embroiled in custody disputes over their seven-year-old girl Shayla.

Norma has made plans to take Shayla to her native Israel on vacation at the end of March (15) and Gibson has filed legal papers to make sure she does not move there permanently.

According to, Gibson asked his ex-wife to sign a contract promising to return from their vacation on a set date but Norma refused to agree to it.

The matter will now be resolved by a family court mediator.
