Mel Gibson --

Gone Fishin'

8/7/2010 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you're looking for Mel Gibson, we've learned he's on a family fishing trip -- and Oksana Grigorieva and her attorneys are none too happy.

Sources tell us Mel has been out of the country all week fishing with 2 of his sons. We've learned Oksana's laywers tried to schedule Gibson's deposition -- for the ongoing child custody battle -- right smack in the middle of his trip. The depo's been delayed since Mel is unavailable.

According to sources, Oksana's people think the delay is evidence that Mel is not committed to Lucia -- but we're told Oksana's lawyers knew Mel was away when they set the date.

Sources say Mel will be front and center for his deposition in short order.

Oksana's lawyers are as slimey as she is. And Oksana's hysterical supporters aren't much better. These stinking lawyers KNEW he was away on a trip BEFORE they scheduled the deposition. They are s*** suckers just like Oksana and her ignorant supporters.

I wouldn't count him out either. He still has a lot of good work in him.

I don't think his career is over though, time will tell but the man is very creative and one of the best in acting/directing/producing.

Mel will survive...but it will take some time. He is too talented and persevering not to. Some people like to see the rich and famous fail, and succeed again, like the proverbial phoenix that rises out of the ashes. Sad, but true.

I would say that if it is proven that the infamous recordings were altered, that Mel was being extorted, and that he didn't punch Oksana in the face and head, breaking teeth and causing concussions, he will do better than he was pre-scandal.

oxys grabbing at any straw she can ahold of. That's what the desperate do when they see their world swirling down the toilet.

I wonder if it was Oksana's greed, as much as her lawyer's greed.

Darlin, there's one thing you can count in these types of situations...the one who ALWAYS makes a lot of money is the lawyer.

Hiya Spider -

According ROL (so ya know, pillar of salt time), CPS has cleared both Mr. Mel and Miss Oksana, or will be clearing them very soon. (BIG pillar of salt).

In any event, getting cleared by CPS implies there was no abuse.

I'm waiting for a more reliable report. There's a difference between "fully cleared" and "inconclusive". Inconclusive will still put the person on the CACI (Child Abuse Central Index).

ROFLMAO.........ROL has "exclusively" learned that Mel's out of town for this deposition. About 24 hours after being posted on TMZ.
