Oksana Grigorieva will file a lawsuit against Mel Gibson alleging -- among other things -- battery, emotional distress and defamation ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Oksana has hired Martin Garbus and Daniel Horowitz  ... two formidable lawyers who have been around the block in celebrity cases. Garbus has defended Robert Redford, Al Pacino, and Spike Lee -- and both he and Horowitz rank among America's top litigators.

We're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent almost all things Oksana -- they will be her reps in connection with the domestic violence investigation as well as the extortion probe.

In addition to the civil suit, we're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent Oksana in her music career -- specifically, they will challenge Gibson, who they claim is blocking the release of Oksana's music.

As for the civil battery case against Gibson -- sources tell us the plan is to file it by the end of the year.

I can't pity this woman at all. I know the things Mel allegedly did was completely wrong, but she has something about her that would even provoke me to wanna slap her around a bit. If Mel doesn't have a history of violence against women, then why start now? She pushed his buttons hoping he'd do something so she go public or extort money from him. She's not this innocent little victim like she's trying to portray, there's something really shady about this woman.

Not knowing what actually happened behind closed doors (excluding the "leaked" tapes), no one really knows what happened with these two. Regardless..... this woman is a gold digger. How much money does a baby actually require to be cared for? If she gave MG rights to her music and he's blocking it, then she has no one to blame but herself.

Sure as all get out, they will take it on contingency. See, she doesn't need any cash.

I can not believe this money hungry bitch. She is using this little girl just like she used her son to get money. If you asked me both kids should be taken from her and given to their fathers. Let the bitch go back to Russia (if they will have her) and get a job like the rest of the world.

Ut oh! She apparently has assembled a legal team. Things are going to heat up quickly I believe.

These guys may be able to piece together a pretty damn good case given what we've learned to date.

Let the games begin!

"She pushed his buttons hoping he'd do something so she go public or extort money from him"

You are completely speculating here based on your ingrained bias to this woman. Why didn't similar things happen between her and the previous husband? He was also rich and famous.

You do not know her motives any more than I do, but at least I judge based on the evidence I have and not by the evidence I WANT to be there.
