Mel to Oksana

Relax, You'll Get Your Money

10/17/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson ain't gonna pay Oksana Grigorieva the $20,000/month in child support until the judge clarifies if OG's housing is included in the payment -- much to the dismay of Oksana's layers, who were shot down in court on Friday ... TMZ has learned.

1017_mel_oksana_EXD_TMZ_01
Oksana's 39th lawyer, Lisa Bloom, said Friday that Mel Gibson was a deadbeat dad, insinuating he was behind on child support. But sources connected with the case tell us ... the new child support order signed by Judge Scott Gordon is unclear as to whether it includes Oksana's housing payments -- payments Mel has been making from the get-go.

Mel has been paying Oksana $5,000/month in child support in addition to all of Oksana's housing expenses. But now that the judge has upped the monthly child support to $20k, we're told Mel's team wants clarification -- is it 20$k including or plus housing expenses?

Until the judge clairifes his order ... Mel will continue paying $5,000/month.

Oksana's lawyers tried to force Mel to pay the $20K immediately, but we're told the judge said he would take the matter up in November ... as previously scheduled.

When Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Nancy Grace, Alred, Lisa Bloom, that other mouthy woman who says "straight out to ___ blah, blah, blah in a demanding tone" started worrying about upping the ratings, drama and $$$ more then the material and doing good at reporting the facts and news, they failed. They've ended up hurting women more by encouraging these fame-hos and extorting, because they become the type themselves. These women sit and judge other women and men but yet, they sell their books and spins for ratings but look at their lives. What a load of BS.

These women have no morals themselves.

Seriously, the judge isn't really helping in the fair administration of justice to allow this to drag out because her attorneys incur more fees at Mel's expense. No custody & support case should cost this much....it is just a legal way for lawyers to transfer the wealth of someone who actually created something to someone who creates nothing of value. For the most part they are all just leaches in a game of theft.

Poor America. There is no other country where all this **** created by Oksana would be allowed.

Speaking very coldly --

Lisa Bloom, whatever her own problems getting involved in this case, is MUCH more 'telegenic' than the piano player.

Every female attorney who is more 'telegenic' than the piano player has been dismissed very quickly. Maybe the Bloom character will last longer than the others because of her Gloria Allred connection, but it kinda makes you go hmmmmm?

I don't think it will last long. The piano player will not tolerate anyone smarter or better-looking than her.

How will Lisa Bloom avoid the Timothy Dalton connection? Mr. Gibson is somehow responsible for paying her other child's bills as well?

Give it two weeks.

Tee hee

So, as Harvey said, this court hearing had nothing to do with Mel being a "deadbeat dad." Bloom's only been on this case for a few days, and she is already giving people the creeps.

Sounds like a sensible motion to me. I wonder what "housing expenses" Mel is currently paying...I have yet to see anything that is factual on the Internet...but I think we can all assume that these housing expenses are substantial.

@kickaboo I agree with your assessment 100%. These women have absolutely no self respect and do damage to all women with their actions.

@Mac I hope you are right. Lisa is proving to be even more dis-likable than Horowitz because she is attacking Mel directly with her lies. When Ox reads these boards and realizes it only infuriates people more...she will be beside herself.

@Genna She is creepy and has lost all sense of credibility now.

I truly believe this is an ATTEMPT by Lisa BLOOM to distance herself from her own words said during a voluntary INTERVIEW on the steps of the FAMILY COURTHOUSE!
She is trying to AVOID a CONTEMPT OF COURT CHARGE.

** and today I learned she could be brought before the BAR for REVIEW!

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE. ATTORNEYS can't ignore the law and say VICIOUS UNTRUE PUBLIC STATEMENTS and then simply doubleback and think they can ERASE what they did.

She called MEL GIBSON a "DEADBEAT DAD".

Mel Gibson is NOT a "DEADBEAT DAD".

SHe violated Mel Gibson's rights! And I bet just as my wise friend suspected and asked and pointed out to me was necessary, SHE NOR ANY MEMBER OF OKSANA's LEGAL TEAM had even SUBMITTED any paperwork to claim MEL GIBSON was a DEADBEAT DAD.

Lisa BLOOM must be HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY

THE COURT

and

THE CALIFORNIA BAR

imo.

(And I am VERY HAPPY TO SAY, I am in some IMPRESSIVE COMPANY)

And I have heard it doesn't have to wait until Nov. either!

The fact that Hollywood Reporter has pulled the story of VIolet Kowal being threatened by Ox's bodyguard and Gloria Allred not telling her to go to the police is very telling. I think Allred had the story pulled. Who else would WANT it pulled? What did Allred DO to get it pulled? The sh.it must be about to hit the fan.
