Oksana's Lawyer Pulls Plug on Oprah Interview

10/5/2010 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva will not be doing Oprah Winfrey's show, but contrary to a CNN report, it's not because the judge gagged her ... it's because one of her lawyers said, "No way."

1005_oprah_oksana_EX_TMZ_01

There's a report out that Judge Scott Gordon ordered Oksana to pull the plug on "Oprah" ... we know that's simply not the case. 

Judge Gordon did not order Oksana to stay clear of "Oprah."  Period.

Sources connected with the case tell us there was a conflict between Oksana's lawyers -- Anne Kiley, her family lawyer, was strongly against Oksana doing the interview.  Sources tell us ... Daniel Horowitz, who arranged the interview, wanted her to do it -- as did Oksana -- but ultimately Horowitz deferred to Kiley.

I too have been wondering why OG and her spokespeople/attorneys have been allowed to blatantly ignore the gag order.

In the back of my mind has been the worrying thought that the judge, or one of his family members, had the potential to be threatened and/or compromised by OG's associates. And I'm not talking the dogwalker.

OG has had a long standing affiliation with unsavory Russian mafiya types such as Sergei Kuzmin (he organized for her placement in the UK twenty years ago), and their star panderer, Piotr Listermann. Listermann has publicly stated he set her up with MG.

I feel for MG. He's got two organized groups gunning to relieve him of his earnings; the mafiya - in an out and out grab, and the American media establishment - by way of attempting to destroy his earning capacity in the US.

It feels wrong to say it but, after all that's NOT been reported in the mainstream media about OG and her criminal confreres, I have to wonder if there is an organized attempt by the Jewish media establishment in the US to bring down MG.

I would wish MG to know how many fans he has worldwide (including some like myself who were NOT fans prior to this ongoing travesty) who do see the truth of this monumental attempted shakedown, and who shake their heads as to what is going on with the justice system in Los Angeles County.

this kinda disappointed me. why does her own lawyer have to be the one to gag her? i thought there was officially a gag order in place which prohibits both mel and oksana from talking about it the public. why didn't the judge enforce this rule to begin with? the more this drags on, the more i think oksana won't ever be penalized for any of her actions. if this had been any other person, i think she would have been arrested a long time ago. but becoz it's mel, i bet they'd allow her to screw him over and let her get away with it. i don't condone me's rants, but he doesn't deserve what oksana and her lawyers are doing to him.

THANK YOU ! ! ! I say this every time i read ANOTHER story by this big lipped chick. It's like he should be 'happy' that he's spending ALLLLLL this money to prove he didn't hit the chick. I give him cudos though for having the balls to stand up and say he didn't do it. He would rather spend his money defending himself than paying off the band of gypsies.( as i've come to think of her EXTENDED fam)

Ok he was a belligerent fool on them tapes, we get that already. But i smell hooey ! ! My son has a trust. I don't have access to it and have NEVER attempted to gain access to it. It's not for me. I don't like my son's father, but that doesn't mean my son shouldn't love his father if he so chooses.


This will come back and bite her when the child gets older. She would be better spent getting on with it like MANY woman do everyday.

And Judge Gordon needs to put a cap on these fees, if he isn't going to make a ruling anytime soon.

The extortion case hasn't been handed over yet. Hopefully it will be turned over to the D.A. soon and extortion charges can be laid.

And Mike your wasting your time pasting those links, everything links on these we've already exhausted it, analyzed it.
We still can't find anything that more favorable to Oksana lying.
Even her ex- mother in-law said she was nuts at age of 19.
Her husband was nearly driven mad by her when she kept demanding money at age of 19, he was 21 and develops serious case of bad nerves and nervous tic.

That Mike a sure sign that Oksana had some kind of bipolar at young age. No wonder she takes 30 tablets everyday.

Mike, Time for a bed time story.

I know a man, who was arrested for felony domestic violence. The former girl friend was either drunk or on drugs. When he was trying to leave, she stuck her hand into his vehicle, grabbed his keys out of the ignition and threw them into the desert. This was nighttime. The guy never found his keys. She then proceeded to bite him, and he punched her in the face to get her off of him. One punch, and she sustained a broken cheek bone.

Want to know how it turned out? Because of her antagonism, the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to 90 days in the County Jail and was out in 45 days.

He also had to pay a fine, and attend anger management classes. End of story.

By the way, in case it isn't clear, this is a California case. Now, how do you compare a broken cheek bone with a couple of missing/damaged veneers? Pales in comparison, doesn't it.

So, what you want is for Mel to cop out to a misdemeanor, spend maybe 30 days in the slam, because LA County lets them out a lot earlier than San Bernardino County. Pay a $200 fine, and go to anger management classes. Would that satisfy you?

End of bedtime story, so say your prayers and go to bed.

For some reason, i don't believe that one. I personally believe it was the judge. THAT makes more sense and is MORE believable than her attorneys pulling the plug!!

____________________________________________________

the lawyers dealing with her child custody related issues are completely on the ball (Trope and Trope). They already got her 20k per month from Mel when the general theory was that she wouldn't get much more than the previous agreement.

It's Horowitz and the other clowns that are really screwing Oksana over. They are a separate swat team of lawyers for her other issues not related to Lucia (extortion, domestic violence, civil suit, etc).

what a bummer, m-OX-cito is not going on Oprah??

I would have watched it just to see the audience waiting anxiously for their Oprah Give Away and then receiving a signed CD from m-Ox-cito LOL, that would have been priceless...a lot of them would have probably rejected it or forgotten it under the seat lol
