Mel Gibson's Lawyer:

Oksana Full of Lies, Deceit

6/28/2010 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's lawyer claims Oksana Grigorieva is making up horrible stories about Mel because she's having buyer's remorse over a custody agreement she signed.

0627_oksana_grigorieva_mel_gibson_ex_gettyStephen Kolodny tells TMZ ... what's really behind Oksana's spate of new allegations -- that he punched her twice in the face last January, knocking out her teeth and giving her a concussion -- is sour grapes over the custody arrangement to which she agreed.

TMZ broke the story ... Oksana went to court last Monday and got a restraining order prohibiting Mel from getting near Oksana or their daughter, 8-month-old Lucia.  The next day, Mel's lawyer went to court and got the judge to modify the order, allowing Mel to have contact with the baby. 

Kolodny claims, by modifying the order, the court rejected Oksana's argument that the baby was in any danger and affirmed their recent custody agreement.

Kolodny says, "Oksana's deceitful conduct in trying to terminate Mel's access to his daughter continues."

Sources connected with Oksana claim she believes Mel is "extremely violent" and poses an ongoing threat to her and the baby.

Kolodny scoffs at the claim, adding, "Having entered into an agreement that allows for overnight, unrestricted visitation, and would soon result in Mel having 50/50 custody of their daughter -- an agreement reached after a two-day mediation with two retired Superior Court judges, Mel was hopeful that their break-up was behind them and Lucia would be the beneficiary of cooperative parenting. Apparently Lucia will be denied that good fortune."

And for a finishing touch, Kolodny says, "Making sensational allegations is not the way to resolve this," adding Mel wants a custody settlement or a resolution in court, not the media.

Knocked her teeth out and gave her a concussion? Just produce the dental and medical records! She's so full of it! If she's having such financial difficulty, just sell the mansion that Mel gave her! I can't imagine her having friends; she's so fake!

Mel is a jerk. He dumps his wife for a twinkie....gives the cops a hard time drunk....supposedly he's a huge Christian (yeah right). Why did he spend Father's Day fighting to spend it with her child.....what about the other 100 children with the first wife.....don't they matter to him??? Aren't they important anymore? Get your act together Mel. You are a drunk violent man.

I am not a Mel Gibson fan but if oksana's got some issues with Gibson why shouldn't she allow the kid to see her dad; the baby's got no issue with her dad. besides, your request not getting granted by the court is not a ground for anyone to stop a dad from seeing her daughter.

Too often, typical people tend to believe just b/c someone is a celebrity, the are not only above the law, if they get into trouble but they're also invincible.. There's no way they could get into trouble, some folks think! Au Contraire! Everyone, including celebrities are human, therefore they also make mistakes, and sometimes big, huge mistakes! Just when we thought Mel Gibson was a good guy, just like he portrayed in his movies, we learned that no, he's actually a perverted, bigoted drunk with an alarmingly bad anger issue!!

OCD and Bipolar Disorder is getting more and more popular through these typical times. There are two different types of Bipolar Disorder, also known as Manic Depression, a form of mental illness.
There is BP1, which where a patient exhibits total mania, for a certain amount of nights to be completely awake, 24/7. Then there's
BP2, where the patient isn't quite manic, but is what's called, Hypomanic. It's when they're in a fast-paced mood and are acting on
the "fast" in their routine.

I don't believe this woman at all. Are there any police reports to back up ANY of her claims? If not she is lying and trying to harm Gibson professionally, which these days is not hard to do. She knows that and so she didn't get what she wanted so she is putting all of this out. I don't feel sorry for Gibson because he is old enough to know a trick when he sees one. But,the baby doesn't deserve to get caught up in grown folks b.s.

What does the old fool expect?? Marry some unknown young enough to be your grandaughter & expect to live happily ever after. I doubt either married for love, & this (divorce, accusations, name calling) is what happens when you marry purely for egotistical, selfish reasons. The whole thing was very predictable. He's an old fool.

"Mel Gibson's Lawyer: Oksana Full of Lies, Deceit"



Well....in order to cheat on his wife, didn't Mel have to do this????? Proves that karma truly is a biotch and Mel had better admit to his addictions (women and alcohol) so he can clean up his act before he becomes yet another bigoted celebrity has-been who is dead.



Betcha he is doing a lot of "I'm Sorry's" to his ex-wife about now!!!

I don't know who is lying and who is telling the truth - but if she claims he knocked out her teeth, then she will have dental records to back up her claim. If she doesn't have those records - well, case closed.

Um, wow...    

While I'm not a Mel Gibson fan, I don't think he would do any of the things she is claiming... IF he did, then, why the HELL wouldn't she have left at that time, or at the very least called the police (to have photo evidence)?! I would NEVER stay with someone who was abusive, ESPECIALLY if I had a tiny baby to think about!!! I call total BS on her stories!!

Mel has a drinking problem and thats it.



People need to wake up. His exwife nor his six other kids ever ounce said he abused any of them. Yes he has a problem that he will have till the day he dies and really for the problem he has he is doing real good.



The who Jew thing is crap too. We have all said **** we wish we could take back. If you claim to be so perfect then you need help. As for what he did and he made amends with it and fact is most Jews don't hate him like you think. They are smart enough to know how he was raised and how that effects people later.



So get a clue and figure out already that rehashing this or trying to label him still after all he has done is stupid and makes you just as bad
