Oksana to Judge:

Make Mel Pay For My PR

9/7/2010 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva spent tens of thousands of dollars in PR to thwart public perception that she sold the secret tapes -- and now she wants Mel Gibson to foot the bill ... this according to sources.

Mel Gibson Oksana Money
We're told Oksana racked up $84,000 in PR expenses and certain unpaid legal fees.  As for the PR fees, our sources say Oksana felt hiring PR reps was the only way counter someone as big and powerful as Mel Gibson.  Oksana -- who insists she didn't sell the tapes -- felt she was getting trashed in the media.

Sources say Oksana wants Judge Scott Gordon in the custody/child support case to clear the $84,000 debt.

Here's the disconnect.  The judge would never award money for PR expenses.  Aside from legal fees, Judge Gordon would adjust the existing agreement -- $5,000 a month plus the house -- only based on the needs of baby Lucia.

As we first reported ... Oksana's lawyers have gone to court and asked Judge Gordon to up the monthly child support obligation to upwards of $40,000.

We're told the judge has yet to rule on the request.

Thtat's like OxSanity needing body guards. I mean come on... Like Mel would go after her. Mel wouldn't go anywhere near her, the guy wouldn't want to catch anything that's not treatable!

She paid a PR firm to change the public's perception that she was the one who sold the tapes? Is there anyone out there who doesn't think she sold the tapes? I didn't think so.

You have to be intelligent in order to instill common sense into someone. She has been doing this so long , She is unaware that her life is now an open book. She is having tantrum after tantrum while Mel is lauging his arse off. He did say let the new games begin, looks like she took that literally

I can just see Mel cringing at the sight of her and sighing a big relief he didn't marry it.

she should pay for her own expenses... PR is for her benefit and not for her child so she should be the one to shoulder it.

No I think those people are the ones who played her album backwards and listened to the backwards messages it contained like the ones below:

" You will love and adore me "

" You will buy 10 copies each of my album "

" You will send me all your rich friends names, addresses, and bank balances"

" You will defend the greatest singer in the world "
