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.

This is what I mean by no credibility.

Who would expect a 12 yr old to come to the aid with a grown man waving a gun ranting and threatening to kill them? They supposedly left that night but who said there was a phone available to the kid near by? That would terrify anyone it happened to, if it did happen.

he Gibsons issued a joint statement on Monday to Access Hollywood stating:

“Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so." Thomas is the only minor, and Robyn is seeking joint physical and legal custody of him.

Please tell me why these two break-ups are polar opposites? Could it be the women involved? Or did Mel just suddenly turn insane? I tend to believe that people remain fairly consistent. Plus, Oinky changes her stories as she sees fit.

Nile, they were supposedly in the bedroom and the kid in another room. He had no phone available to him? I highly doubt that. They didn't live in a cave.

Mothers & Ex-lovers/mistresses will always try to get payed for their welfare, whether they deserve it or not. It is a natural fact, no one should blame Oxa for that. The court will decide what's to be paid, according to the cir***stances. Mr. Gibson is good for billions & he entered into this by his OWN choice. Now he regrets the relationship, perhaps he was even abusive for a while, but he better treat his babymother in a noble way! May her attempts to get a good pay & custody of the child have driven her to criminal acts, she must cease the evil scheming! The court will hopefully take a fair decision & all parts calm down for the sake of all involved.

Sad, but after all, why are we here? Excellent entertainment, 100% reality-show, classic story, a more fascinating scenario than any Hollywood movie seen for years!

Or was it all planned by Mel himself to warn about the global traffic of golddigging Oxa's?

What she looks like doesn't matter. He lost his looks a long time ago.

They may not find any link to extortion and a lot of women find themselves in scary situations it's hard to get out of because of emotional attachment and limited cash so it isn't unheard of. It may not be what she bargained for but she rushed into it without looking where she was going. Now she has a joke of a career and no guy.

However just because she is not a great person doesn't mean Mel isn't violent.

I bet a lot of people didn't know about Phil Spector or Lennon years ago. You probably wouldn't have believed the DUI rant if not for TMZ or how foul Mel can be if you hadn't heard it for yourself. You would probably just say oh he would never do that.

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!!!

What part of letting Oksana stay in that nice house rent free, free car, insurance paid, medical paid, most likely utilities paid...do you not understand? I'm sure Mel Gibson would have cases of baby food, formula, diapers and assorted baby needs delivered if Oksana made a list. The trouble with Oksana and her mother, they think child support is THEIR personal use money...Lucia is just their pawn to get it.
What is Oksana doing to support her own children?

Actually, I think Mel is still a handsome man, but that's just me.

Gibson broke up with OG in April. OG was offered $15mil in May, and she walked away from it after first agreeing to the settlement. She found new attorneys who assured her that she could get more money. That's when the "tapes" surfaced, and all of this hoopla about Mel being such a demon, and how she made all of the tapes on Feb 18th, because she "didn't think she was going to make it through the night." Uh huh...right.

Hi Snorty!

Greetings wondering! Suppose “Snorty” is my new nick-name. I buy that. Defending Oxa is a hard task, I keep telling myself I have said & done enough, still the debate rotates on new, interesting angles.

Nice point of view by firefly (#71), that Dalton perhaps kept silent about domestic troubles (not informing Mel) to carry her off his ovn back. Wasn’t it for the publication of the tapes Mel would probably have done the same, but this time something went “wrong” (whoever leaked the tapes) & there is no way of hiding away no more. .

The saddest part of this whole thing is of course the kids involved. Sasha is being dragged through this. Lucia, Mel's kids. And IF Mel is found not to have done anything, Oksana will not apologize to anyone. She will never admit to anything. She will still say he did something and of course make more accusations after it's all over.

And again, in the end, the kids will have to deal with mom lied or said this or did this...or dad said this and was accused of this.

It'll be a mess for everyone.

Oh, and as to who sunset is...she/he/it is someone who hates Mel with a passion and doesn't use their brain, AT ALL!! And is named after a pornstar, or is the porn star...or something like that. OH! and she accused me of being a hypocrite with no information to back that up at all and said me and everyone else dont work and were on here all day. Yet I only posted very late last night ONCE....so again, not using the brain thing.

Nlle,

Oksana is the one who emotionally abused her old, rich lovers. The only young Russian guy she was married was hurt and used by her too.

Mel has stayed in a marriage and supported families for 28 yrs. He protected his families and their privacy as a man. He has paid way too much cost on his stupid doing - fell for Oksana and left his marriage. I only could see he was innocent to the outside world, and thought every woman he met should have a respectful history as Robyn did. if he had done back-ground check, he would have run away.

It all comes dowwn to some simple things...

Men cheat and women cheat.

Men use women and women use men.

If Mel cheated while him and Robyn were married, she was using him for support. Mel then used Oksana for whatever and she used him for support/money.

It's all the same thing all the way around.

Things got wild in some fashion. Again, EVENTUALLY things will get straightened out.

TEAM TRUTH!!
