Oksana Taking on Debt to Fund War with Mel

7/30/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to Oksana Grigorieva say she's going broke trying to battle Mel Gibson -- and, in fact, TMZ has learned Oksana's already had to take out a loan to pay her high-powered legal team.

0723_Oksana_getty_ex

Multiple sources tell us that Oksana took out a loan just to make partial payment to her attorneys ... and she's also maxed out credit cards to fund what's become a legal World War with Gibson, who's hired three law firms. Legally speaking, it shapes up like David vs. Goliath.

People connected to Oksana claim Gibson cut off almost all support payments back in May when the mediation talks ended -- and Oksana turned her back on a $15 million agreement. Currently, we're told, Mel's only paying child support to the tune of $5,000 per month.

If Oksana's getting limited financial support from Mel -- and we know she isn't working -- then here's the obvious question: where's she getting money to live day to day?

We're told Oksana's seeking retroactive support payments from Gibson.

Servers her right she should not have gone with a married man in the first place. I have no sympathy for her at all.

What did she use for collateral? It doesn't cost $10,000 per month to raise a nine-month-old child. The most this baby needs is love!

If she wants sympathy, it's in the dictionary between **** and Syphilis.

i have been gone all day and have tried to read everything to catch up bu there are so many posts, i just give up after # 360...... posts on previous story.

anyways, NEW PR--> NEW TACTIC-->AMBER the more i read her words, it sounds like she is trying to get some sympathy rather than all of oskanky's other supporters, the loud belligerent obnoxious posts we have had since this began. i think AMBER is part of OG's new PR group trying to show us how misunderstood Oskanky is ,etc.

AMBER-DID YOU EVER YEAR OF ONE HIT WONDER? EVEN IF THE SKANK WROTE THAT ONE SONG,(i hear there are discrepancies) IT IS ONE SONG AMONG MANY...PERHAPS SHE GOT LUCKY(some pple do)BUT CERTAINLY, IF ANYONE KNEW TALENT, IT WOULD BE DAVID FOSTER. SO PLEASE STOP WITH YOUR IDIOCY AND GO BACK TO THE SKANK'S TEAM AND REPORT YOUR FAILURE TO TRY TO SWAY US WITH FALSE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ROBYN(how dare you pple bring her into this crap...she has done nothing but be supportive for the man who has been her husband for almsost 30 years) AND FALSE BRAVADO FOR OSKANK!

BTW-its telling how she has so far gone through 2 attorneys and on the THIRD one.
also has lost a good PR man to a SECOND one who has history of hating Mel. If these pple believed she was in the right all along, they would have waited for a LARGE PAYDAY! but instead, quit before being paid out and just cut their losses!

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD LOAN HER ANY MONEY UNLESS THEY JUST WANT TO GET THEIR NAME OUT IN THE MEDIA!

if the police seizes her pc, i wonder if there are any e-mails to her sister and others that may shed some light on who her contacts were to plan this scam...she prob had some help in planning this out...idiots then, cuz there are waaaay too many inconsistencies and they certainly didn't think this through! and whats worse is how they have underestimated the American pple thinking we would believe everything we hear without question! LOL

Friend?    

Good Mel! and don´t give her a cent more. After all damages she´s done and is doing, she owns you money.

And to the Russian woman:

There´s something called WORK FOR THE MONEY! Boo hoo, I´m not getting supported with millions boo hoo! No, wait, I forgot, you could also sell tapes.

How a woman, or female, can put a price on sleeping with a man and getting pregnant. What this boils down to is she's trying to put a price on pride, which is something she has never possessed. Actually, she's trying to put a price on her sexual services. I don't think Mel should have to pay her attorney fees either; after all, they were never married ~ just shacked up ~ living in sin! A woman, or female, that takes money for sex is a prostitute and has no morals! She went into that relationship with nothing and that's exactly how she should leave it. She's just a high-priced prostitute!

Im not buying the story Mel is not the father of Lucia.
He would have put an end to all this long time if it was like that.

The government feels less that seven hundred dollars a month is enough for a senior citizen to live on and pay all of their expenses. This woman feels she needs more than five-thousand dollars a month to raise one baby? Go out and get a job and stop living off of your illegitimate children.

Can someone please tell me why Mel has to pay her legal fees? this is no longer a child custody battle only but also a criminal case they are investigating on both sides?

so why does Mel have to pay so much money for her attorneys and PR, etc??they were NOT MARRIED...why should Mel help this skank to try to continue to discredit him and try to bring these unfounded criminal charges against him by paying for HER TEAM ??

I've gotta quit reading this crap. We're just feeding her ego because she's getting attention!

This crap also ticks me off and the more I read, the more frustrated I get with people being addicted to money ~ out-and-out greed.

I hope I can stick to this: I'm outta here!

For the real story of Oksana, check out UK DAILY MAIL, May 2009

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1176755/Oksana-Grigorievas-road-Mel-From-Russian-overty-Hollywood-royalty-embittered-British-husband-Bond-actor.html

“Oksana's road to Mel: From Russian poverty to Hollywood royalty via an embittered British husband and a Bond actor”

Indisputable facts:

At 19, her mother was horrified she married a much older man & drug addict within a month of meeting him. HE shared HER dream of living in the West; she was prepared to use her talents & beauty to get there.

At 20 she got the her ticket out of the USSR, meeting Sergey Kuzmin who ran a cultural centre in Saransk organizing exchange programs to Britain. He said, “‘She was utterly determined to get away and use her beauty to get on in the world.”

At 22, she married [now] 60-year-old British graphic designer Nicholas Rowland who said, ‘I was married to her only very briefly [few months] … a period of my life I would rather forget.’ Asked what sort of a woman Oksana was, Rowland said, ‘You should ask all the other men – there were enough of them.’

With their short-lived marriage: her British citizenship. She hit the jackpot a few years later when introduced to Bond’s Timothy Dalton; their affair lasted years [she bore him a son] but he never married her.

3-yrs ago, she struck gold when introduced to married Mel.

ROL claims he recently shelled out $250k for atty fees and also paid her $10k this month for child support. This is ROL's brand new headline story. TMZ now has this as their headline story - the complete opposite? Makes no sense. Also, what I find interesting is the 8th leaked tape was actually a tape of voicemails MG left for OG, but ROL did not post it, another site did. Funny they did not post it and this came just after OG severed her relationship with her PR guy. I was a hardcore MG supporter, but the more I listen to him, the more I am seeing what a spoiled child he is. He is nothing but a man child. Set in his ways. Ruined by his disturbed Bible-banging father. A child who has grown into a man who behaves badly when he doesn't get his way. Oksana is no saint, but the way he talks to her in this last tape is repulsive. He truly sounds like a child not getting his way. He has lost my support after this last voicemail recording:

i don't understand your logic...i doubt you were Mel's TRUE supporter...if you were, you can see how they have tried with FALSE tapes to discredit him and defame him in public....also, this 7th or 8th tape or whatever, by then it should have confirmed how destitute Mel sounds how defeated he really feels by this skank.

NO, YOU WERE NEVER ON MEL'S TEAM...IF YOU WERE, YOU EITHER WOULD HAVE IGNORED THIS LAST TAPE(AS I HAVE) OR LISTENED WITH COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT MEL HAD GONE THROUGH DURING THEIR WHOLE RELATIONSHIP!

please stop quoting the BIBLE or change your name since you OBVIOUSLY do not know what Jesus's words TRULY MEAN!
