Oksana to Be Deposed in Child Custody Case

8/1/2010 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oksana Grigorieva will take the oath -- swearing to tell the truth tomorrow when she is deposed in the child custody dispute with Mel Gibson.

Mel Gibson Oksana Custody

Sources tell us Oksana and her attorneys will meet with Mel's attorneys.

This could be tricky for Oksana because although the primary focus will be custody of Lucia, the topic of the tapes will most likely come up -- the recording and sale of them. Oksana could invoke her Fifth Amendment rights and refuse to talk about that subject.

Either way, tomorrow's events will be critical in this case. Check in with TMZ for all the updates.

Thank you. I agree with you.

Gene, you are dreaming if you think people hate her because she is from Russia.

Get real! People hate her for acting like a victim, when she is, in fact, the perpetrator.

People hate her because we witnessed her set up the father to her child. People hate her because she manipulated him. She taped him throughout a day when he was obviously in pain and thought he could trust her to a private conversation. People hate her because she played him for a fool, betrayed him and then publicly humiliated him. People hate her because she acted like she loved him when he was trying to help her with her career and then when that didn't work out, she figured out a way to go after his money.

Trust me, people hate this woman because she is a SNAKE!

The ROL guy on Shobiz is an idiot. You can't "prove" someone "may have" done something. That's an oxymoronic phrase. You can prove they did or didn't do something. "May have" is supposition not a fact.

he spoke of investigative reporting at its best and how they cannot divulge their source, blah blah...

Just made me vomit a little of my own spit just watching this guy sound so satisfied and smug during the whole interview!

It's "show boating" at its worst. It's common knowledge that media outlets make a point of saying they do not pay for interviews, either. But it's also common for them to get around this by paying for other things associated with the actual interview, or the person directly involved.

The only evidence OG has at this point are her "witnesses." And eye-witness accounts are considered to be the least credible evidence in any courtroom, compared to other hard evidence.

I have no idea how they could be legally obtained if they were sealed by a judge. Did the judge sell them to ROL.....LMAO they only explaination is that ther were several copies and who would have those copies other than the the freak who keeps giving them interviews... They insult all of us with the load of BS....

Unless she's hooked up to a lie-detector and dosed with truth serum, I doubt anything she says during the deposition can be trusted to remotely resemble the truth. A pathological liar can beat even those though.

I agree with you. She is one of those that never backs down no matter how far she is backed into a corner. She will keeping spinning and lying with a straight face until the bitter end.

Why does she have a 5th amendment right? She is Russian. Let's deport her, I'll bet her visa is expired.

Accessed today: idmb bio of Oksana Grigieva
Oksana Grigorieva is a Russian-American pianist and composer known for high profile relationships with celebrities, such as Timothy Dalton and Mel Gibson, among others.
* * *
During the 1980s she studied piano at a local school of music, then continued her piano studies at the Kazan conservatory in Russia, albeit she did not graduate from the conservatory, abruptly ending her studies there after three years. Oksana was a straight-A student, keen to hone her English and prepare herself for better life in the affluent West. But it was her personal life in Russia that caused most troubles to her and her parents, because by the age of 18 she became so attractive and desired by many, so that men of all ages could not resist from stalking her and some young men were even caught while braking into her bedroom window to get her.
* * *
Okay folks, even my very expensive female bitch (who was too expensive to spay until she got older) never caused such a stir! (Yes, snort, giggle, eye-rolling and LOL.)

I did spew out my glass and have to clean off my screen as well, but it is TOO funny. Credit where due: only on TMZ site can we let off steam like this.

When they take a deposition, the attorneys for both sides are present. Oksana's deposition is being taken first, and Mel's will be taken the same way on another day. Mel's attorneys will ask the questions of Oksana and her attorneys will ask the questions of Mel. These are sworn statements and are what the attorneys refer to when they are in court. It's an important process and should not be taken lightly because the opposing attorney keeps coming back at your comments if they differ from what you said at the deposition.

It's astonishing to me how much the California police have to put up with! When he got busted driving drunk, he sat in the police car and kept banging himself on the seat screaming ' YOU MOTHER F.....I'M GONNA FFFFFFF YOU'!!! And how he owns Malibu and he's gonna spend all his money getting even w/ the cop!!!Lolololololol...I'd like to see that ACTURD get away w/ that crap w/ a NEW YORK COP!!!

Posted at 1:43 PM on Aug 1, 2010 by Laurie_NY

What do you think they'd do? Shoot him 47 times like that one unarmed African American man or take a bathroom broomstick to him like that one poor African immigrant? Ha, they'd handle it no different than Malibu did and let a drunk rant. It's not celebrities New York cops are known for abusing anyway. And most likely New York alone has a higher crime rate than Australia.

Absolutely. And these sworn statements are also important when deposing other witnesses.

I am sorry but I don't believe her being under oath will make one iota of difference to this gal. No way can she tell the truth. I don't think she has it in her.
