Baby Talk in Mel Gibson Court Case

8/19/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the financial needs of baby Lucia were front and center yesterday in the Mel Gibson/Oksana Grigorieva custody hearing.

Mel Gibson Oksana Custody
We're told yesterday's marathon court hearing involved a request by Oksana Grigorieva and her lawyers to increase Mel Gibson's child support payments.  Sources say Mel's lawyers argued the kid is 9 months old and doesn't need more than Mel is paying -- we're told $5,000 a month plus other living expenses.

In the end, Judge Scott Gordon decided not to decide on the spot, but to think it over.

There was a notation on the court docket plastered on the door of the courtroom that the issue of Lucia's passport was on calendar, but we've learned the matter never came up.

As for Mel's deposition ... sources tell us a date still has not been set.

old Oxsana Givakashova needs more cash? For what? Mel pays for everything in regards to her living expenses, me thinks this is a way of getting a little more spending monety for herself. I can't see the judge approving this unless she can show her living expenses have increased, and we all know that isn't goign to happen...Unless you account for when she needs to record herself when she see's her mug on T.V., and she could needs some cash to get someone to run credit--er-- I mean back round checks on any men she may eventually want to take--er I mean date when this is over

earlier today oksana was spotted at the local ralphs recycling drop off center where she began drawing a crowd after baring her chest then yelling at the worker for refusing to accept them in return for payment.
sources overheard her saying they cost more that he made in a year, and storming off back to her dodge then rolling down her car window yelled at everyone....kiss my ass TMZ comment peoplez who are mean to me! and almost ran over three people trying to leave the parking area.

This is tricky. $5000 seems like more than enough per month to support a baby, but Mel is LOADED. I've never thought it was fair for kids of divorce to alternate going between one rich parent who tries to buy their love, and one not-so-rich parent who can't provide the same luxuries. This isn't an issue now, but becomes a problem when kids get older...

if the house is paid for and the maintenance is taken care of, as in utilities, insurance for home auto earthquake theft etc, pool & gardening, auto maintenance, food? bodyguards? cook? new babysitter or nanny? therapist? pr rep? lawyers? plastics upkeep?
personal trainers (both zigfried and roy)? paid fake pap photogs?
will 5k be enough .....hmmmm

Yea, I am certain the baby needs more botox and those diapers, they are sooo expensive. The Nanny costs so Oksana can pay her PR people, are horrific. OMG.....ROFL.

It is Okskank that doesn't have enough money!!!! I hope the Judge sees that. The $5,000 cash sounds low, until you add the rest of the stuff into it (car, house, insurance, etc.)...and then it is HUGE. Who needs more casy that $5,000 for a baby a month? She is a miserable woman. This is soooo pathetic. She needs to stand in a line for housing support like the rest of our American citizens. That is truly all she deserves as a woman. She has made zero of her life, and her goal of celebrity and riches, is a very low goal that has lead her nowhere. OMG she is pathetic.

He is worth around 500 million dollars and he is only paying five thousand a month? He should be paying a lot more than that!!!

You might be forgetting that Dalton has a child with her as well
is he not paying her child support as well? and what about the house david foster bought her? and her other assets she bilked the other men for over the past number of years?
