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.

I went away for a few minutes ...to another website. I was listening to "4 Non Blondes" singing on youtube. The band has broken up but I love their song "What's Up". If Oksana could sing like that she wouldn't be trying to steal money from men all the time.

I think Stacy went to go and swear a Declaration out to the court on Mel's beahlf saying that she thought OxSanity was insane and should be locked up in a mental instituion. Stacy said she was going to tell the Judge " Oxsana is totally insane your Honor,she claims to be a accomplished singer and pianist...You honour if you listen to a track off her C.D. you will see only someone totally insanne could beleieve that"

As Mel never declared that she released the recordings, she can't be defending herself in the media against Mel.

Woman, you weren't defending against Mel. You were on the offensive - you and Jaffe and ROL. what was that you said? "mel trivializes abuse" The man hasn't uttered a word.

So she rehires this sleazy Jaffe so Mel's lawyers won't be able to question him about her extortion activities.
And she wants Mel to pay him?
:-O

Hi ya garnet....talk about irony....She was the one who went and turned the public against her. First with the Leaked tapes, then the leaked photo's, then her many different stories she has changed over and over and contradicted over and over....I think Mel might be smarter than we all knew. The guy didn't have to utter one word to bring Oxsana's credibilty down, I think he knew the whole time she'd screw herself and bring her own credibility crashing down

I think Oksana told her the Judge herself, and then he told her that she had to come out from under his desk and file an actual application with the court

Oksana is nuts to even imagine that the judge would grant her request. What was she thinking when she hired the PR people ...that her music career would start to take off because of all the publicity ?

she felt the media was trashing her? ...err no they weren't
we here in the comment sections did not accept what the media was reporting in such a one sided attack blitz... it was us who spent time asking questions and researching and getting answers and constantly refuting false claims and misinformation her team was spewing out at a unbelievable rate that brought attention to the questions that are now upon everyones minds... ok claiming it was us here that changed the tide is hahahah stretching it way over the top but .... so what... we still get paid by mel don't we?

What truly amazed me, she taped him,which she admitted it.
She also admitted her sister knows about the tapes.

When she released the tapes to Rol, it went viral and people went into extremes shocked.
But when she kept releasing the tapes one by one till the numbers went to 5.

When the public started to get suspicious, she tried blaming Mel for it, by saying he was trivializing the domestic violence when she's the one who was spewing it all to the media.
Talking about bipolar on denial.

this is probably oksana's way of trying to show the court she was not the one who released the tapes for money to RoL... it won't work.
