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.

here's the thing, Mel will have to pay child support, but besieds that, WTH DOES THIS SKANK THINKS SHE DESERVES!?

she was his girlfriend for what? like 2 years? that is nothing. just b/c she decided to get pregnant by him, it doesn't mean Mel has to support HER monetarily...
so the 15 Mil was MORE THAN ENOUGH! MORE THAN GENEROUS!

i hope she ends up with nothing and Mel gets full custody and Robyn helps Mel raise his daughter since she did such a wonderful job with the other children!

Ox ANON gets charged with child neglect, endangerment, & fraud and extortion, either sent back to Russia or go to prison!!

Someone on another post referred to her as LOOKING LIKE THE EVIL GIRL IN THE 'RING'

ROFLMAO

It has nothing to do w/ anything...but if your going to be evil and without integrity nor a work ethic, at least don't look like a gumby-faced, anorexic, baby-voiced bad impersonation of Angelina Jolie... with augmented breasts and long ratty hair...................sheeeeeeeeeeesh

When I first saw her, before we got to learn how WARM AND WONDERFUL she really is, I couldn't help thinking...'wow, of all the women to leave your wife for, and you pick that?????

Sorry, that was beneath me, but oksana must be rubbing off on me.....

..know the saying about when someone is a wonderful person, you don't see their flaws b/c 'the spell of love is everywhere'?...

........maybe thats why her ugly inside is reflecting in her ugly outside.......

I hope Mel, if proven innocent, can recover.......in the end, it's just between you and your Maker....no one else

Go away w/ Robyn and your family and F"""" all of them, Mel
...and do get some help for your pain and unhappiness, and if nothing else, use this experience as a sign to make a change..of what you want to be in your life, I'm sure it's not a rage-filled alcoholic

TMZ,,

PLEASE, can u find better pics of Mel for this site?
We all know how handsome Mel is...but all your pics have made him look loony...perhaps he has lost it in some respect but you don't have to make him look worse than he is.

perhaps you are trying to show how this skank has made him into a loony idk, but PLEASE, get better pics!

Hope he finds his way back...hopefully kicking this skank to the curb is the first right step into that direction!

TY,
Devoted Fan!

OX ANON prob thought she would win in the public arena and gain sympathy from us with all those leaked tapes and pics.
Fortunately for us, we are not as stupid as this Russian skank thinks we are. there are many professionals, myself included, who are able to analyze all that we have heard and seen and decide for ourselves what seems right and what seems wrong.

did this woman think she can "hood-wink" us into just follow her blindly, blinded by her "beauty" just b/c she is a supposed "helpless, abused" little ol' me? she seems anything but that!!

we as society are willing to do anything to help someone who has truly been abused and who is truly concerned for her children. but her behavior from the very beginning has been suspicious, and as more news comes out each day, they confirm all our doubts about her.

we do not condone Mel's racist remarks, however, i have known pple who may blow off the handle when angry saying some nasty things IN PRIVATE but never meaning those words. many of these pple i know personally would give a person of any color their last dollar if it helps them. if Mel does need help, i truly hope he does. but i also think some of these comments he made during a private blow-ups were just some frustrated ranting and raving by someone who was very disappointed by OX ANON as well as the choices he himself made in life...

....and so this story continues...and OX ANON, be very careful what you do and say b/c we are now and have been on to you and even though you have done all you can to try to destroy this man, WE WON'T LET YOU...he has been part of our lives for many generations, a legendary icon, and we will not stand by to watch him be destroyed by a NOBODY who is just after his hard earned money with his brilliance for all these years, with your EVIL, LYING, VINDICTIVE, CONNIVING SCHEMING WAYS!

This woman is Batsh*t crazy. I have a feeling Mel Gibson is the victim in all this. You can see the deceit in the woman's eyes.

Wow..... no doubt, it is all about the money with her. Fearing for her and her daughter's life? What a joke and what a greedy lying person.

The woman disgusts me, and so does Mel's rant, but she is pure evil. A cunning, coniving, poor excuse for a mother.

Mel this is your Annus horribilis. This week I saw interviews with Britney Spears and Robert Downey Jr. Both said that Mel Gibson helped them when nobody else would. Robert and Britney both made incredible come backs after their annus horribilis years. Somehow Mel had the ability to see that they were incredibly talented people. But how did Mel ever get messed up with someone like Oksana? I am getting the feeling that Oksana is nuts and definitely not the smartest cookie. She could have accepted the $15 million on the condition that Mel had 2 years of psychotherapy/rehab whatever. If she cared about Mel this is what she would have done. Instead, she turns down $15 million and then tries really hard to destroy his career but is really only destroying her own credibility. I truly believe that Mel also could sucessfully sue Oksana for mental anguish. He could owe her $1 million. She would owe him a $1 million. It is a lose lose situation. What Mel should do now is set up a trust fund for his daughter and walk away. Eventually, the daughter will get old enough and want to meet him on her own terms. Oksana won't be able to do anything about it then. Mel: go back to your ex-wife or find a woman who has clarity and compassion. The Dalai Lamai can explain why these qualities are important and maybe how to detect them in people.

even after shes proven to be a liar its to late for mel there will be no bouncing back from the damage this tramp has done to his career and credibility....i say send those so called tapes-cd"s whatever to some place that can authenticate them and make her foot the bill for it...and when its proven to be edited throw her big lipped ass in jail where she belongs.......then maybe he can move on and get the help he needs with his drinking

I would looooove to see Mel win full custody of the baby for him and Robyn to raise. Mel continues his therapy.

If the skank somehow gets the child, then all she deserves is child support, not a cent more than that.

SHE WAS JUST A GIRLFRIEND NOTHING MORE! B/C SHE HAS NO OTHER LEVERAGE, SHE IS PLAYING THIS ABUSE GAME....WHAT A CON ARTIST!
