Oksana: I Didn't Want Mel Gibson's Money

7/22/2010 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with Oksana Grigorieva tell TMZ ... there is one reason and one reason only she ultimately turned down $15 million from Mel Gibson -- she did not want him to have unsupervised visitation with Lucia.

TMZ broke the story ... Oksana agreed during her mediation with Mel in May to a $15 million package.  In return, she promised to keep all of the "evidence" confidential -- which included the secret tapes.

As we reported, Oksana and Mel signed a one-page agreement, but when the longer form document was later presented to Oksana, we're told she balked because it included a clause which gave Mel unsupervised visitation.

0722_oksana_child_cleanOur sources say Oksana felt Lucia was in danger and said she would turn down "any amount of money" to keep Mel from unsupervised visitation.

UPDATE: Moments ago, Oksana was asked what she wanted to get out of her battle with Mel ... and she responded, "Just my child. I'm fighting for the life of my child."

Love how ROL was bashing MG about a "bruise" on the child, but ROL has now gone from:

“bruise” to “abrasion” to “mark”...lol. Quite entertaining to watch that that little monkey, David Perel aka Bubbles, as he grasps to hold on to this quickly fading story:

1st ROL Report:

"Oksana has told law enforcement that she was holding the couple’s infant when Mel punched her and that he hit the baby. RadarOnline.com reported exclusively on Thursday that there are photographs of the baby with a bruise on her face after the incident

2nd ROL Report:

"In a bombshell world exclusive, RadarOnline.com has obtained the photo of Lucia showing what appears to be a small abrasion on her chin after the brutal January 6 brawl, in which Oksana claims Mel punched her and hit their child, who was being held by Oksana at the time."

If money's not an issue, why doesn't she just take the kid back to Russia?

Hey : Sara and areyoukiddingme.
I just heard that that Vampire Nancy Pelosi died during her 961st plastic surgery procedure. Does that make you feel better?

Mel Gibson needs medication and does not belong around women, children, or society in general until he is STABILIZED. What's not to understand, people? Really, if you have half a brain, this is as obvious as the nose on your face. She gets it, I get it, wtf is wrong with you?

So Mel hit the kid in January, and Oksana agreed to keep quiet for 15 million in May, but I'm supposed to believe that she cares so much about her kid NOW that she changed her mind. uh huh. I don't buy it. I think she thought she could get more money from him if she got full custody of the kid and filed a civil case against him for hitting her. I don't think Mel hit her but I do think he's insane.

areyoukiddenme -she's playing into your fantasies, stereotypes and preconceptions, that's why you "get it" (that he "hit" her) without any evidence ... and it's what she's banking on, literally.

BananaPatch: Noooo, that's not why I get it. I understand because I worked with criminally insane people. I heard his rant, I've heard thousands of others like his. He's sick right now. And you better believe people this sick will back up their threats. He is dangeerous, especially to himself.

What she says and what she does are two different things. This is all about money and fame. Just watch what happens in the coming months and you will see her fight like crazy for money.

And all you conspiracy freaks out there, I'm not on anyone's bankroll. I'm just a person with life experience and an opinion. It makes me angry to have seen the calculating way Oksana has played this. I was ready to be on her side from the beginning, until it became obvious that she's spinning a web of lies, destroying people in the process.

Definitely on TEAM MEL now.

So, you admit it (despite the faux denial) -you're basing your "conviction" (that Mel hit her) on preconceived notions and stereotypes.
Thank you for your moonwalked admission.
Now, clear your head and look at the evidence again ...
