Oksana to Lawyers:

Where's My Money?

8/6/2010 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oksana Grigorieva is P.O.'d because her attorneys just got paid $250,000 from Mel Gibson ... while she got a grand total of zero dollars.

0801_Oksana_Grigorieva_tmz_ex
Last month Judge Scott Gordon ordered Gibson to pay a quarter million bucks in attorneys' fees to Oksana's legal team -- which he did.

But here's the thing -- sources close to Oksana tell us she was led to believe her attorneys would break her off a chunk o' that cash.  We're told that hasn't happened.

We're told Gibson has been paying child support to Oksana, but sources say she desperately wants more than what she's been receiving.

So, let's review the scorecard:
Oksana's lawyers -- $250,000
Oksana -- $000,000

so the courts ordered mel to pay for some of the legal fees so far and he had to pay out some dough, plus some child support. The child support goes to Ox, but the money for legal fees stays with the lawyers, duhhhhhh.

I was told in California a judge can decide the person with more wealth can/will pay for all or a percentage (or none) of the others legal fees to even the scale of defence and representation. I haven't read much on it, but that is what I am told.

I don't know Mel, if you are talking about millions of dollars, maybe 250,000 isn't too much and is worth so many of hours and depos etc. Hollywood numbers are unlike most of the country. :-).

===========================

The 'bitch' is merely the visible tip of the iceberg

There's a LOT more going on here than most people see

This is a multi-phase attack on an individual, imo


Many facets

The public face of this little show is 'Mel Gibson vs Ox'

but that's just the screen


This has been a while in the planning, imo

It's ' revenge being served (and enjoyed) cold ' as they say, imo

I guess I am being snarky from the bodyguard thread --

Woman in distress in nightgown (obviously diaphanous and underwired) running through the streets of (Malibu, whatever) screaming 'protect my child'. Beefcake to the rescue who are bare-chested with AK-47s? or, better yet, SWORDS, with clenched jaws and ex-military backgrounds -- but with SWORDS, to the rescue.

Tee HEE -- lots of snorts and snarky thoughts.

Is there anything Mel Gibson isn't paying for? Perhaps she will demand that he pay for her "bodyguards" as well.

I suspect we've moved beyond the ludicrous headlines phase already

They've failed to serve as distraction, as was their intention

The public is beginning to put its thinking caps on very firmly now

The scheme ... like a b-grade movie plot ... has failed to convince

The truth is being peeled, layer by stinking layer

People's eyes are open now

$250,000 for a team of lawyers really isn't that much for a month's time. Where I live, good ones even at middle income bracket access charge $200 - $300 per hour. Not including expenses.

This is nothing to do with a fat-lipped freak female

This is about taking down Mel Gibson dollar by dollar, breath by breath

The fat-lipped freak was deliberately chosen to fascinate and distract the ' dumb public '

Curious and Joi...

Is the $250k the max as a retainer, or will Mel be required to pay additional fees?

Dang, I forgot the crossbows. But they aren't as manly as SWORDS, are they? Downer yesterday in the playground, but I hope now we all have our nightgowns on, our tinfoil hats firmly in place and our swords at the ready. Giggles.

If the fees are higher than $250K, he could be compelled to pay unless the Judge puts a cap on the fees.

You're a fking loser if you can't get a laugh out of a funny picture. GTFO out then if you think a gossip tabloid should be as serious as national news.

Via this latest little Mel Gibson shakedown

we begin to appreciate the behind-scenes shakedown of Tiger Woods

and other wealthy men

who (we're supposed to believe) suddenly took leave of their senses and began betraying their wives with a gaggle of cheap whores

Who owns and controls the media ? If you don't know, you need to find out

Those who own and control the media boast they also own and control 'information'

and everything we discuss here was derived from ' information ' supplied us by the whore media

Time for people to engage in a bit of independent thinking, using the brains God gave them
