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.

There's no reason to think she will be in hand cuffs. All you will do is lose all credibility by insisting Mel didn't do anything which makes you sound like you have a beef with women that get rich men and you have to believe the guy is completely innocent. Meanwhile she'll just get more publicity because she'll be worth it in interviews.

Why can't you except that it's possible Mel wasn't the nice, family man you thought was and Oksana was a screw up for being with him.

You could turn the argument around that he is sick and she should have known better and it's her fault given his DUI rants and all the stuff that was hidden for decades about his bigotry and rage, and say she has her own problems and is a sicko too and he should have known.

What I am saying is just because she isn't a great person doesn't mean he IS.

All you will do is give her more media attention. The hand cuffs are just your fantasy, neither will be cuffed, but that's the kind of fervor that media thrives on. Maybe you can't stop but you are definitely helping to create the monster.

Oksana has claimed Mel pulled a gun from the pocket of his short, pointed it at her head and threatened to kill her, Lucia and Sascha, as well as himself, in an apparent murder-suicide plot. (From ROL)

OMG Is she efn serious? How can she possibly think anybody would believe this?

I know everybody is different, but....I have several sons that are all a year apart from each other. I cannot imagine that if I were being threatened in any way from anybody, that they would not come to my aid by demanding to come in the room or calling the police or calling their father asking for help. This whole thing just sounds like a bad plot to a bad movie.

So far OX is doing ok. Still living in MG house for free having Gibson pay for her lawyers going to get at least 5k plus expenses for the baby and this is just the beginning. As always the only ones who are going to make out are the lawyers.

Nile, if she is found guilty of extortion, I guarantee you...she will be in cuffs at some point in time. Ask Letterman's extortionist if he got away without getting cuffed.

Sweetheart said that Ox's hair is a wig. Looking at this picture it looks like she may be right. There are earlier pics of Ox when she was younger with thinner shorter hair. Everything about this ox is fake.
