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

0916_oksana_lawyers_EX_01

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.

OMG I just find out that Mel Gibson has been reading all the post and will use it in his defense he will be contacting all of the regulars to thank personally.

Also he is talking about hiring all of you to help write the script for a epic motion picture about his life and how your support helped him get through this rough patch. What would he have done without you!

You saved his life and career and he is in debt to you all....now im clapping for all you posters and how you have changed the world with your countless hours of posting on this topic. Be proud very very proud it wasn't for nothing you have saved his life. (a single tear is running down my face.....its a beautiful moment.......now im sending you all cyber hugs and kisses to all my heroes posting for the past 90+ days ....xoxoxo

Hi there everyone! Whew! I'm sure glad the spelling police weren't out last night - those 2 glasses of wine I had with my sweetie went right to my fingers! LOL.....they seemed to have a mind of their own galloping across the keys -
Taking a short break from work - any news? I was furious when I read this headline yesterday but think now its just a smoke screen - She just likes the publicity. Plans to do something quite often don't work out - so it could be a diversion tactic from the Bodyguard/V.Kowal story.

I can't believe it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Oksana would end up in litigation with Mel.

This has totally burst my bubble--a Russian bride of sorts turning out to be a wack-job. I may cancel my membership in the 25-Russian marriage websites that I thought held so much promise.

Well, I guess I got out cheap, I only bought 25-washer/dryer combos.

I've jumped the last few pages from last night and today so forgive me if anyone's already commented but one of the story's released today is by Mel's lawyers who say he signed all right's to Octomum's twin's music away in AUGUST and her cd's which could not be sold were given back to her lol!! So um, if he has that do***ent why is this lawyer here again hm?! There is no case with regards the music lol!! Child custody and child support yes, no spousal support as they were never married, never lived together and were not together for 3 years so she can't claim support lol!! Of course this is all probably p.r anyway to make everyone think she has any sort of case against Mel, trying obviously and failing to divert attention away from the extortion charges that will probably be filed against her (hopefully lol)!!
That smirk is back and so irritating you really do feel as if you want to slap her smug face, wonder how wide her smile will be in prison issue orange jumpsuit lol!!

"If the Mel Gibson tape turns out to be a doctored version, like the false proclamation that Mel punched her in the mouth twice,than Oksana Grigorieva needs the book thrown at her by the judicial system. Real domestic violence is a terrible thing. Claiming it happened in order to make a buck is terrible, too, and does a grave disservice to those who really experience it in life. It also is unnecessary work and expense for our law enforcement officers, who already have too much to do."

The above is copied from an article. I liked this paragraph because it is so very truh that real domestic violence is a horrible thing and her rants and complaints do not ring true and her lies, do are real disservice to those who really experience real domestic violence in life.

I suspect she thought as most sociopaths do, that she would become the poster child of poor abused women and this would repair her image and her music would sell. What she did not realize is that many Americans sort out "phony" really well. Her plan did not work.

big chief    

Why are these attorneys representating her? Are they using their services to "legally" allow her to commit coercion to obtain money, property and services from Mel? Are they no better than her bodyguards, who are nothing more than organized criminals practiced in the rituals of making threats of violence?
