Oksana Grigorieva and the Gloria Allred Connection

10/12/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva made a beeline for attorney Gloria Allred after secretly recording Mel Gibson ... sources tell TMZ.

We've learned ... days after recording Mel's crazy rants on February 18, Oksana met separately several times with Gloria and attorney Eric George.  Oksana went back and forth before finally deciding to hire George.

Our sources say Gloria had advised Oksana to go to the cops immediately and file a domestic violence complaint.  Gloria also told Oksana she should hold a news conference where she would play the secret tapes.  It's important to note ... just two months before, Gloria scored a $10 million settlement for Rachel Uchitel and then canceled her news conference just hours before it was supposed to go down.

George engineered a $15 million package for Oksana and Lucia in May.  Sources say during the mediation ... Oksana was back on the phone talking to Gloria.  After signing the mediation docs, Oksana disavowed the deal and began lawyer shopping again.  We do not know if Oksana continued talking to Gloria.

We asked Gloria about the meetings and whether she had anything to do with the possible sale of the tapes.  Gloria said, "No comment.  It is the policy of our law firm never to discuss who does or does not contact us and for those who do contact us we never disclose what is discussed."

zoody....Frist and foremost, Mel and Robyn were married with 7 children.....They come first in his mind....He made other provisions for his illigimate child that he felt was comparable to what he has set aside for his legit children. He does have to leave any money to any of them....Get that through your head...

And I will add, zoody, that Robyn is not the mother of Lucia. She has no responsibility to Lucia. The ICON trust is for Mel and Robyn's children.

How many of you have dated someone and known:

* his/her net worth?
* intimate details of his/her financial dealings?
* intimate details of a trust established for his children?

Prior to my marriage, I was involved with other men, some of whom were quite wealthy. They certainly were not in Mel Gibson's league, but they were wealthy. Never did I have the particulars of their finances. Never did I question them in this area.

Just another aspect of this that I find troubling.

How come greedy Mel and Robin had to exclude Lucia from the Icon
trust?

They set that trust up for their children ( Mels and Robyns)
Mel offered Oksana and Lucia a trust of her own with the same value.
Don't forget that Mel and Robyn made the fortune together in a period of 28 to 30 years and it's their money.
I think Mel is being extremely generous when it comes to Lucia.
It's not like Lucia isn't getting anything.

So Gloria told her to file a DV complaint and Eric told her to file a DV complaint, and both times she refused. Why?

I come from a family of divorce ..... We all know what the other woman tries to do if the man is wealthy.....first thing, exclude your first family from the will or make sure "I,WE" the second family have just as much or more.....its a story as old as the hills...the second wife always thijks she is entitled to more for some odd reason.....

Natasja, exactly! The only person who thinks they are entitled to something is Oinky! She just doesn't get it that she's entitled to NOTHING, although Mel was generous (at least in my mind) by providing her a home, car, nanny, etc. He had no obligation to do that. His obligation is to the kid and he was doing right by that child. He still is by taking her every other day! Most mothers would be thrilled to have a baby daddy do what Mel's doing.

KM, that's been her trouble all along. She thinks she's entitled to what a wife is entitled to. I think she wanted to marry him to secure that, but she tipped her golddigger hand a bit too early and Mel woke up to her scam and bolted. Then she was trapped. She had to come up with something to get her paws on his millions...200 million.

I think I know what happened to Tony Mel's so called driver. Since nobody can find this Tony who witnessed the abuse then it had to be Herzog who got rid of him. Since he spoke of unsolved murders in Hollywood and police on his payroll. Herhog did it, Herhog did it!!! That's another reason she had to get rid of Herhog.

And considering what he asked in return 50/50 % custody...
He even gives her money and legally he doesn't have too...
He also takes care of Alexander because he is also providing a house and food for him...

WhoKnows.... I also beleive that she never signed with TD on that Pre-nup and only wants to collect child support as opposed to spousal support because child support is not taxed, at least in Michigan, spousal support is taxed.....
