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.

Mr.Gibson has 7 children before Lucia, and he knows how much money necessary for 9-month infanta in a month.Somebody wrote here Mr.Dalton pays 5.000$ too for his son (teenager) If it's not enough for Oksa, let another people (from child control,for example. or people,who court trusts) spend that sum of money on infanta...She forgets about she wasn't married with Mr.Gibson, therefore she has to work for living

My understanding is that $5000 is extra money. Her (and her mommy's) living expenses will be paid for by Mel - accomodation, food, transport security etc.

No matter how rich Daddy is, you don't give a 9 month old baby more than $5000 pocket money.

true, the baby will just spend it recklessly and would probably overtip the waiters, rims for the dodge that spin....

Thanks, wondering...

So...$5K is not enough Child Support. I'm so dumbfounded, I don't know what to say.

Who'sThat    

i feel the question of whether "$5,000 a month...is about right" is tricky.
IMHO, since Mel pays for all the large bills ie. a home, insurance, car, etc for both baby and its mom, $5,000 is NOT ABOUT RIGHT, IT IS TOO MUCH!...unless, Ox is putting a large chunk away a month for Lucia's savings.

so although the question of $5,000...is about right SHOULD BE ANSWERED WITH A YES, cuz i don't think she needs more than that, the answer to this question can also be a NO because, the baby needs a far LESS THAN $5,000...

perhaps, the question can be "DO YOU FEEL LUCIA NEEDS MORE OR LESS OR ABOUT $5,000"?

[] More than $5,000

[x] Less than $5,000

[] About $5,000

Why would there be pictures of her friends? She's not famous except for dating Mad Mel and all the post you guys give her. That said at the launching party of her "debut album" there were a number of people there, probably some were her friends.

I don't think there is extra spending money for her. They weren't married or together very long so there is no spousal support or palimony in this case. I'm sure she gets money from Dalton but there's no way anyone knows how much and she doesn't have sole custody of the boy.

$5,000 is more than enough money for the baby, and more than enough for adequate food and clothing for the mother.

Anyway look how many post there are for this story. Take a good look. You people are upping her her notoriety. If you stop she will fade away.
