Oksana's Newest Lawyer

Angry at Mel, TMZ

10/17/2010 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's latest addition to her legal team is lashing out after our story yesterday -- that Oksana has had at least 39 lawyers working for her in her legal war with Mel Gibson -- claiming Mel has an armada of lawyers and others trying to stomp Oksana down.

Lisa Bloom claims "Mel has a fleet of highly aggressive law firms fighting her at every turn, including one which calls itself a '450+ lawyer business litigation firm -- the largest in the United States devoted solely to business litigation.'" 

Although the current war is over custody, support and alleged crimes and not business litigation, Bloom adds, "This is only one of at least four known major law firms behind the scenes, as well as publicists, marketers, and public relations agencies."  Bloom says, "Oksana is a single mother of two who's gone into debt fighting for simple justice."

TMZ broke the story ... at least 18 of Oksana's lawyers have submitted bills to the court totaling more than $1 million, and they've asked the judge to make Mel foot the bill.

Bloom says Oksana has had only "a handful" of different law firms in this case, adding, "Though occasionally other lawyers in their firms may have pitched in."  Bloom says, "It is totally false to say she's had 39 lawyers."  We have listed all 39 lawyers -- Bloom has not said which of the 39 she believes were not working on the case.

Is it just me, did TMZ shuffle the Oksana stories AGAIN and make sure this one is no longer the first when one scrolls through their site?

Why do they keep doing that? Do they do it for other stories too?

I thought their site is built so the most recently published article is higher on their string of stories.

For some reason for some time, Oksana's stories have been jumbled.

WHY?

was it pretty well known even as early as July by the people in LA about this skank?

Who'sThat,

Oinky had a reputation in LA a LONG time BEFORE the "tapes" became public. This was a known MO of hers in the Hollywood circles.

V,

not sure why TMZ would do that...if it is to control the number of posts, it is not succeeding...is it to try to bury other stories fast? not going to work since other media picked up on those stories too...so idk what the reason is for them to try to "hide" the more recent stories..."confused myself"

Can't really confuse people who are already posting, especially if they write down the order. Plus the stories are timestamped, so if folks bother to notice ...

Confusion --Nyet.

There must be some OTHER reason(s).

Wonder if a LEGAL EAGLE, INVESTIGATOR,DA,or

MAYBE EVEN A JUDGE

might see something in what keeps happening and specifically happened from FRIDAY to Today?

There IS a court hearing today isn't there?

LA me,

The post on the other story where there was a space between Oksana's men, was that done by you intentionally as a HINT HINT?

And if yes, can you tell give any more hints?

Industry?

So far, we have FILM, MUSIC, possibly BANKING/INVESTMENT,and truly I am not sure how to categorize Mr Bergman EX dancer, activewear company owner, photographer.


Anyway - just wondered if you could share any tidbits that might point a direction?

If I haven't completely misread your post that is.


OH - for all LA folks on the board, the footage of Oksana
"LOST" was dated Oct. 7. Oct 5 was when she was filmed at the BEVERLY HILLS Four Seasons with Mr. Garbus.

Ironic huh- at ONE FOUR SEASONS, TIME WARNER was meeting... and at another on the same day Oksana, someone the firm is involved is spotted along with her FIRST AMENDMENT attorney at another.

Maybe absolutely nothing... then again.

Did anyone else connect the dots between the references here by some posters to Julia Roberts and the FOUR SEASONS in Beverly Hills and even the way Oksana was dressed? Was there some stylist who was referencing "Pretty Woman"?

Are we in for ridiculous metamorphus SPIN?

I sure which someone could pull the plug on her attempts to wash and spin.

Lyrics from Queen (thanks to my son the bass player for reminding me):

Steve walks warily down the street with the brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet, machine gun's ready to go
Are you ready? Hey, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat, Yeah
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

How do you think I'm gonna get along without you when you're gone?
You took me for everything that I had and kicked me out on my own
Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
How long can you stand the heat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat (Look out)
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

HEY
Oh, take it
Bite the dust
Bite the dust yeah

Hey
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, oh
Another one bites the dust, hey, hey
Another one bites the dust, heeeeey
Oh, shoot out

There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man and bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him when he's down
But I'm ready, yes I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip, repeating the sound of the beat. Oh yeeeah
Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone
And another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust
Shoot it
Hey
Alright

So where is the accountability on Oksana's part? What does she have to earn? Mel has every right to make sure his house payment is included in his child support and when the child turns 18yrs old the house becomes either the childs house or for sure Mels. These women get involved with these rich men have a child and had nothing to begin with and have this sense of entitlement. Wheres the fight for a fathers right? Mel get your fight on. Hang in there.

V, the buildings shown in that clip is not the four seasons

for one thing the parking structure she was using has an address of 6060... and the four seasons in beverly hills is 9500 wilshire
secondly the exterior shot of the building in the video clip does not look anything like the four seasons in beverly hills.

it looks more like an office building that is around canoga in the valley....

but one thing for sure is it is not the four seasons in beverly hills
