Oksana Had Lawsuit Ready Against Mel Gibson

7/23/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Oksana Grigorieva had a civil lawsuit prepared and ready to file against Mel Gibson back in May, in the event Gibson failed to negotiate a custody and financial deal she considered fair.

0723_Oksana_getty_ex

We've learned during the two day mediation in mid-May,  Eric George, who was Oksana's lawyer at the time, drafted and threatened to file the lawsuit, alleging assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

As we first reported, the parties agreed to a $15 million package for Oksana.  When the outline of the agreement was signed, George abandoned the idea of suing. 

Sources say although lawyers on both sides were well aware of the secretly-recorded tapes -- which one source called "the 800 pound elephant in the room" -- the lawsuit George drafted made no specific mention of tapes, nor of Gibson's racially-charged comments.

As a result, the tapes could have been used as leverage to settle the lawsuit after it was filed.  Now that the tapes are out, Oksana has lost a lot of that leverage.

The suit George drafted sought unspecified damages.

Oksana ultimately refused to sign the mediation agreement in its full form ... she says because she didn't want to give Mel unsupervised visitation.  Gibson's lawyers scoffed at the notion that Oksana had a problem with visitation, claiming that after January 6, he had regularly spent time alone with Lucia and she encouraged him to have even more visitation.

Let's play the 'OKSANA SAID' game:

Brought from the other board again, awesome. Keeping adding as she posts more garbage.
==============================================

1. I came home and walked in the door to find Mel raging - he jumped on me, hit and choked me, then chased me around with a gun - so that I had to flee barefoot in my nightgown. Hmmm - I thought she just got home? When did she have time in the midst of the chaos to change her clothes?

2. He hit me and broke two of my teeth. Wait, well not really- he knocked two of my veneers out... I don't know why the dentist says there was no trauma to my mouth... but I made sure to mention that MEL GIBSON hit me, only don't tell anyone...

3. Oh, by the way, when he knocked my teeth out (I mean, my veneers - I mean ONE of my veneers) he gave me a concussion. Only I didn't go to a doctor or report him. Wait, I remember now, I DID go to a doctor two days later... making sure to mention that MEL GIBSON HIT ME - only please don't tell anyone.

4. Oh - I almost forgot - he hit the baby too! Did I mention I was holding her? I have a picture of a binkie pimple - I MEAN BRUISE - to prove it. No, I didn't call the police, I was too busy getting me teeth fixed from when I fell down in the backyard - I MEAN, from when Mel hit me, to bother worrying about my ragdoll, I MEAN daughter... ahem.

5. Yes, I did go to several events with Mel immediately following all of this drama - in fact we travelled extensively to promote his new film. Hey, girls just want to have fun, right? What's a little concussion between lovers?

6. I have never had bad relationships before ... oh except for lying about being able to have kids and getting knocked up by Timoth Dalton "by accident" ... OH! That reminds me - my son saw this whole thing - yeah! He was in my bedroom with me while I was freaking out... I MEAN while Mel was beating us... OH! And then there was that other chap who I FAKED TAPES on to get more money. Hey, a girl needs to make a living... and it ain't going to be from my suck ass music!

6. I taped these conversations because I was afraid... although I never called the police or filed for a restraining order... did I mention that I have done this before? Oh, and don't listen to those forensic analysts who are saying the tapes have been doctored. They haven't. Really, I really, really mean it. Want a blow job?

What have I missed?

7. Oh , I forgot to tell you that Mel was enraged b/c he had quit smoking....no, wait, he was enraged b/c he needs medication, no, er, he's schizophrenic, no....I forgot, he's imbalanced..yes, that's it, he's imbalanced.....he's 'A MONSTER'...that's why I gave him 50/50 custody of my precious mealticket, oh, I mean baby and traveled with him all over the world....because I knew he could hurt us any minute, due to his being so imbalanced and all....so I kept close to him as much as I could and continued to live in his house, so when this erratic, volatile 'monster' decided to harm us, he'd know exactly where we were and find us instantly.

8. Did I tell you how he punched me in the mouth, er, no, he punched me in the temple, er, no, he punched me TWICE, yes, that's it, but I was SO INJURED that I went to the dentist to have my veneers fixed before going to a medical doctor...or seeking treatment for the mealticket, er, pawn, er baby....
Then I went to a PEDIATICIAN, for MYSELF NOT THE BABY, not the ER doctor, b/c even though two days had passed, and pediatricians don't have Xray machines, I SUDDENLY realized that I had trouble tracking my eyes, after I went to sleep with a concussion (which one should never do)...

9. This is not about money, it's about protecting my ragdoll, er mealticket, er, baby from a monster...did I mention that I'm living on borrowed money and credit cards???? but this is NOT about money or revenge for not getting support other than child support...even though I'm still in Mel's house w/ Mel's car and Mel's nanny...I HAVE NOT A PENNY! I'm only 40, why should I earn a living by myself when I can sell, er, not know who sold, pictures of my ragdoll, er baby! ,,so she can grow up and see how much I had HER interest in mind... But as any abuse victim can attest to, I am doing my best to get away from my abuser, that's why I'm sitting here in his house...contacting book editors...

10. I need lots of lawyers of all kinds - civil law, employment law, intellectual property law, domestic law - to protect my meal ticket I mean baby and to cover the fact that I tried to extort, errr, receive child support money from Mel, I mean the monster. I mean, if I get to keep her I get more mula for shoe shopping, well, I mean grocery shopping, and it will drive Mel crazy. Wait, he's already crazy, born like this, errr, he is crazy because he quit smoking. Many times he quit smoking, you know, because of me.

11. I need to make corraction to story. My lawyers has advised this since I am being crucified Mel-syle in media. Mel gave daughter big bruise on chin, but by bruise I mean abrasion and by abrasion I mean mark. It look like baby rash, but I swear Mel hit daughter, then punched me. He specifically say to me, "I am going to kill you, you Russian whore, but first I need to punch our 2 month old daughther in the chin, so hold on a minute and let me punch her first and then I will get to you!" He is raging Irash man. He drink. He need madication. I did nothing to deserve this. I only not make bed and be lazy and not clean baby very well. (Spelling errors made on purpose.)

12. I tell you all I care about is my ragdoll, er pawn, I MEAN child, not money..that is why I turned down the 15 mil...so I could protect my mealticket, er child....b/c 15 mil is peanuts compared to what Robin got, er, I MEAN, I don't care about money...even though I SIGNED AN AGREEMENT to 50/50 custody with this 'monster' SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER I freaked out and threw myself on the ground, er, I MEAN we were beaten, I renigged b/c I want more money other than just child support, ahem, I mean I DON't want money...I have NOT A PENNY I tell you, no rent to pay, no auto to buy, no nanny to pay, just lots and lots of PLASTIC SURGERY bills, but I pay for that myself with my LUCRATIVE HOSTESS SALARY and my talent for BJ's, er, I mean hostessing.....And that is why if Mel offers me full custody and NO MONEY, I would accept....really, really I would, would I LIE?....after all, I've had a long history of milking men to pay my way, er, I MEAN that I'VE been supporting my own children, er, want a BJ?

by lee

13. Did I tell you that my sister who is in Russia did NOT leak the recordings, photos, text messages to the TMZ? TMZ owned by lawyer who thought it maybe not good idea! I think Radaronline very good idea! They give more money and not afraid of silly judge who made nasty mad face at me when I lied about custody agreement! Oh, but I didn't do it. I promise, please believe me because now I must sue Mel for ruining of my character. My sister did it for me which mean I don't need to have do it. What I mean is Mel don't give me a penny, so what do you expect a single mother to do? But I not do it!

From People Magazine April 20, 2010:

"Oksana Grigorieva has given a cryptic account of her breakup with Mel Gibson, offering the current "official" version but with a tease for more details to come.

"We have split up – suddenly and recently," the Russian musician and singer confirmed at a press conference in Moscow, where she is visiting for a charity event. "Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon."

She added: "Here is the official version: We split up by mutual consent, and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home."

It sounds like the 'leak' to Radar Online was planned.

I think Mel offered to pay her off, but in the end her conscience got the best of her which is why she decided to file criminal charges... why else would she reject 15 million, she can never get that much from him now that the tapes are out.

Why else EDIT/ALTER tapes and pictures????
NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE, that's why the JUDGE allowed Mel's custody to stand.

@ #7 because she thinks she can get more from a civil lawsuit. To this tramp's way of thinking: why sign off on $15 million when you think you can get $100 million.

What's disgusting is she was willing to keep her children in a situation she is now deeming "abusive" in the process of getting just the right amount of $$$(at least the right amount in her eyes).

I want to drill her in her face. What if one of the children would have been hurt or even killed? I guess that would have been okay as long as the price was right in the end?

Custody for NEITHER.

IOW, this snatch was quite willing to allow her children to remain in a volatile situation for as long as necessary until she could secure a financial arrangement to her liking.
Now I want to punch this bitch in her mouth. Whores like this use children as pawns. Hey whore, children are not leverage. Take Lucia away from both of these s***bags and send Alexander to his Father as neither of these two people are fit to be parents.

Bitch slut whore.
