Oksana's Lawyer:

Mel Is a 'Deadbeat Dad'

10/15/2010 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva just left the courthouse after her newest lawyer called Mel Gibson a "deadbeat dad."

Oksana lawyer
Lisa Bloom just left the courthouse with Oksana and said Mel's behind on child support payments.

Bloom also claimed Mel's lawyers are "bullying Oksana" by making her sit for 3 days of depositions and they want more, yet Mel hasn't sat at all for his depo.

And sources say Oksana's former lawyers were in court asking the judge to order Mel to pay $250,000 in legal fees.  There's a dispute over the $250k, and the judge said he'll take it up on November 10.

I feel sorry for Mel. Everyone has a dark side and from what I've been reading he wants to deal with it but doesn't know how to. He seems to want help, he really seems to have a lot of problems. I hope he can find a resolution to all of this madness. I've always liked him and his movies and nothing has changed my mind about him. As for her, karma!

Is this pandering? TMZ your bias is showing.

Isn't Lisa Bloom supposed to be under a GAG order?

What is the specific amount Mel Gibson is supposed to be behind in child support?

What did Mel Gibson's side assert?

And MOST IMPORTANTLY -

What did JUDGE decide?

Was the hearing REALLY about Mr. Trope saying I'm DONE!

And Lisa Bloom tried to send up a bright shiney deflective PR balloon? Come on Ms. Bloom, specifics matter don't they?

That sort of name-calling without basis is libel. Gibson offered Oksana $15 million just months ago, and she rejected it.

Every new step she takes seems to be another step backwards.

Obviously there is nothing to low for Oks and her little band of harpies. It's more than obvious that all she wants to do is to destroy Mel in any way that she can. There can be no doubt at all that extortion was this woman's aim, and the reason that she's being so vicious in her attacks. She was with Mel for just over a year. He makes $5 million a year, so she's entitled to half of that, plus child support. He was willing to pay her $15 million and she wasn't happy with it? She's overplayed her hand and now she's exposed for what she is. I hope she ends up in jail. Why should Mel have to pay her lawyers, other than the family law attorney? This whole thing stinks. She made the recordings illegally, so why is he not suing her for that, and the obvious damage to his reputation?
