Signed, Then Rejected

$15 Mil Deal

7/20/2010 4:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Oksana Grigorieva signed an agreement with Mel Gibson for a $15 million package, which would have kept the Mel tapes secret, but she ultimately walked away from it.

Sources tell TMZ, during the child custody mediation in May, lawyers for Mel and Oksana worked out a financial deal for Oksana -- she would get a total of $15 mil, which included child support, a house and other assets. 

But sources intimately familiar with the mediation tell us Oksana promised something in return -- that all "evidence" associated with the case remain confidential.

We've learned the "evidence" includes the tapes. Oksana's lawyers had played some, but not all of the tapes for Mel's lawyers.  We're told Oksana's lawyers did not play the tape in which Gibson used the N word and made a reference to "wetbacks."

As one source put it, "The tapes loomed large in the mediation.  The word 'tapes' was never used in the agreement, but it was central to the deal."

Oksana and Mel both signed a "short form agreement" -- a bare-bones contract outlining the broad strokes of the deal. The lawyers then drafted a long form agreement which contained specifics of the deal, but we're told Oksana refused to sign the long form, claiming she felt coerced. 

We're told Mel never paid Oksana under the deal because the short form didn't spell out the specifics of payment and Oksana refused to sign the longer agreement which contained the details.

In one of those tapes she cries about how she had $100,000 at one time then 'turns down' 15 million? Makes no sense, but then again, i STILL don't get whatever would have happened to her original hundred grand (obviously she didn't contribute to anything around there). Did she put her own money into the other 5 million that Mel shelled out to launch her CD or whatever?? This chick is just nuckin' futs!!

More proof that she is a lying, opportunistic witch. First the picture proving no abuse and now her willingness to allow her precious daughter near dangerous Mel...for the right price.

I hope all the people supporting her yesterday, still so deluded, now finally see the light. Oksanna is a vitimizer, not a victim.

Every time TMZ has "learned" something, there's a 50% chance it's true.

Well, this is blackmail so I would no longer believe anything this-no-better-than-a two-dollar-hooker said. Deport her back to Russia and give Mel his baby.

That was awesome, Gia. Ditto!
Love it Robbie74, I wondered the same thing. Where DID the 100 grand go (and how did she have it anyway? Dalton's money?) This IS nuckin' futs (loved that movie by the way)...

She's going to try and take him for every penny he has. She doesn't care if Robin and Mels kids end up with nothing. Typical Russian scammer - no conscience at all.

Whores usually hold out for more to keep quiet look at how it worked so well for Tiger's group of whores magazine features flaunting their wares maybe Oksana will be next

Didn't the agreement fall apart because Mel wanted primary custody of the baby....I wish they would just end this crap.

Mel is right. That baby does not need a gold digging, Russian ho for a mother. Too bad that is what that kid got. Hope this ugly Octo Mom look-a-like gets nada. Try working for a living instead of getting knocked up by rich actors. This woman is a POS.

gold digger...she is a fake and sick bitch to use the baby against Mel...he is the victim NOT..the truth is coming out more and more!
