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.

To Wondering #21!! What are friends You ask about?? Mr.Gibson said he met her in a "wrong place"...Do You need any explanations? He was/is separeted with his wife from 2006, and I think he met with her only for intim(it isn't crime), and his mistake is he treated her more more good that it was permissible,it proves he's not greedy and not angry man!! Probably, it was not good time in his life, probably, he had some difficulties with his wife...life is life! Oksa caught her chance...he needn't more children, she gave birth to the eight baby (it was her dodge for her further living...He twice offered her good deal, because he didn't plane to live together with her)He's a victim of delusion. and later - extortion.And pay your atention - there wasn't any scandals before they met, nobody heard about her...because her previous men keep distance with her and used her in "appropriate style" she was born for...

the only reason she wants full custody is so that she can dispense the child support as she sees fit... without any interference and would most likely whisk lucia back to gypsyland so no one could see exactly how she is spending the child support...

BTW, i am VERY familiar with this question since i have 2 children, an 11 year-old and a 2 year-old...

what the baby needs most of all is a loving, nurturing parent(s) and i don't feel she is getting that from Ox...she seems more concerned with inflicting harm to the baby's dad with malicious intent by disclosing all their private matters. if she loved Lucia with all her heart as a mom is supposed to, i don't think she could do this at least in public forum...

how many parents keep quiet about their partners as not to harm their children or delay their separation or divorce until the kids are grown?

if Ox truly loved this child, i don't think she would publicize all the demons of Lucia's father (provided he has any) or even yet, fabricate lies and "leak" it to a tabloid forum.

she is out for herself and not thinking of her children, neither Lucia, nor the older boy who has to endure all this in public!

i just wish our court system would understand all this...

Good post!

TY, Friend,

This is all very frustrating, isn't it?
i don't understand how any court system will HAVE to THINK ABOUT this to make its decision...it just seems so obvious to some of us...UNLESS we are not aware of some of the expenses..?

I wanted to add that David Foster did not buy her a house. It was discovered she was living in a house he owned, not that he had given to her before she moved in with Mel.

It looks like she was dating Foster before he moved on to his current girlfriend back in 2006. He obviously let her stay in one of his houses anyway.

It must be nice to be rich enough to afford a ton of investment property.

misssahara, what i was wondering about was her so called close friend that keeps popping up in the media that acts as a witness to the goings on from an insiders point of view pertaining to mel and oksana
so just as oksana's background has been completely hidden away, covered up, so too has her friends, sister, and anyone who supposedly supports her during this

Too bad, so sad    

Has everyone forgotten that Mel cheated on his wife of many years when he knocked this hosebag gold-digger up? Did he think she was with him for his wonderful personality? You cheat, you lie, you get everything you deserve! Hope it was worth it!

Perhaps this is why OG is lying about the term of their relationship. She was quoted as saying that this was a 3-year relationship -- not 18 months. She's just looking for more money.

LOL! I must confess, I think that would be soooo appropriate, and can't help but smile at that vision. (Except for her children.)

No, I don't. Other posters do, however. I understand that her relationships with other men haven't exactly been helpful to her "reputation."

5,000 a month is plenty for a small child. No way do you need more than that - doesn't matter how much he is worth. She needs to work like the rest of us instead of trying to live off everyone else.
