Oksana Ready to Sue Mel Gibson Over Music

7/28/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a new legal war brewing between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva -- and this one's over her music ... which she can't release without his signature

Sources close to Oksana tell TMZ that she's prepared to sue Gibson to release a CDs worth of new music that he executive produced and co-wrote.

As we first reported, Mel's not in the mood to sign over his publishing rights on the music because his team believes Oksana's trying to destroy him.

At this point, Mel letting Oksana release a CD and go on a promotional tour would be like Obama letting Kim Jong-Il borrow a nuclear warhead.

Our sources on both sides, say the music matter will most likely land in court -- or become a high-priced bargaining chip in negotiations for a financial settlement.

And the band played on...

Well, did she pay Mel for studio time and give him an hourly wage? How much does a music producer make? Given her reputation no one would buy her music anyway.

What a horror! Oksana trying to sing? I can't say I'm interested.

I would much prefer a cd of gibbering Gibson howling at the moon, or barking like a dog!

"Muflghbuh Ableghedebe flubhadubba blehhh" (to the tune of Janis Joplin's Down on Me).

He's such a hoot!

She can't sing..did you ever see the tape of her awhile back on youtube it was painful. She can make her own music she wrote produced and owns and then there's no problem. Who owns the right to the CD? If Gibson wouldn't it be up to him to release or not?

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Mel gave her a mansion and house expenses, a fabulous car, expensive jewelry and clothes, spent 5 million on a CD no one bought, she gets $5,000 a month for his daughter but wants $40.000 a month, wants him to pay for her hundreds of lawyers, etc. etc. Is there no end to this Vicious Cobra's demands? I don't know why it's taking so long to put this lying, lazy, lunatic in Jail. Good Luck, Mel.
