What Oksana and Mel Are Really Fighting Over

10/31/2010 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The real fight between Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson may not be about child custody at all ... we've learned the various lawyers who have been repping Oksana have been focused on a legal document created long before Lucia was born.

0928-mel-gibson-oksana-tmz-ex
TMZ was first to report the problem with the Icon Trust -- created by Mel and Robyn to provide for their seven children. The trust defines "issue" (aka children) as kids born from Mel or Robyn. When it was drafted, no one thought Mel or Robyn would have a child outside the marriage. Enter Oksana.

Sources connected with Mel and Robyn say no one in their family wants to screw Lucia out of her inheritance, but if she becomes a beneficiary in Mel's trust it would create some complicated tax issues.

So when Oksana and Mel broke up and struck a settlement deal during the mediation in May, the very first term reads, "Oksana consents to amendment of Icon Trust to exclude Lucia."

In return for excluding Lucia, Mel agreed to provide a financial package for the baby worth more than $8 million.

Sounds like a sweet deal. So why did Oksana disavow the mediation she signed? We're told the lawyers Oksana hooked up with after the mediation believed Lucia got royally screwed by giving up an interest in the trust. They told Oksana that Lucia would stand to get around $50 million under the trust agreement ... which they believe represents 1/8 the value of a $400,000,000 trust.

Sources connected with Gibson tell us the money in the trust is not even in the universe of $400,000,000 ... not remotely close.

But here's the deal. If Oksana's lawyers persist and Mel settles out of court, the attorney would get a percentage of the settlement. So they've convinced Oksana there's something in it for her ... and there's something in it for them.

oksana, there is a difference between famous and infamous, and you will never be accepted into any of the celebrity crowd other than as a side show freak with a voice that would crack a cement sidewalk.

Shuffle Icon is owned by Mel - he isn't working you can't keep a buiss running without putting money into it. I think going bankrupt would be an end to the means.

So all of you who thought Oksana wanted money for herself are WRONG according to this. She wants Lucia to get her fair share of the trust. I think that's reasonable. Why should Lucia get less?

She should not get less JLS. I agree she is a Gibson

the russian gold digger has LIED from the beginning. IT WAS NEVER ABOUT THEIR DAUGHTER (for HER) ... just HOW MUCH she could GET from Lucia's trust.

BY WHAT RIGHT IS ... THAT THIS TRAMP feels ENTITLED to SHARE IN MEL'S & ROBYN'S LEGITIMATE CHILDREN'S HERITAGE.

THIS JUST SHOWS THAT THE GOLD DIGGER HAS ONLY BEEN INTERESTED IN THIS MONEY. EVERY WORD SHE'S UTTERED is fabricated to GET HER HOOKS INTO MEL'S KIDS INHERITANCE ,,

I HOPE THE JUDGE GETS REAL JAIL TIME FOR THE LYING TRAMP ... AND GET HER deported ...

That is why Mel threw her out of his house. She was into all his legal papers and money statements.

Cartman that poster told us on the other board the father and mother molested them. We are just letting them get thier anger out and sorta ignoring them. It is understandable how they are feeling as the father death anniv. was a few day's ago.

I don't know how much Mel got for doing The Beaver. I read production cost was $20million. I'm assuming that that include actors' salaries.

You do know that ICON is Mel's production comapny right? Mel still makes a lot of risdualsoff of his movies and then anything he directs or prodcues would be for ICOn... even if he decides to never be in front of the camera, he's could be behind it just as well..so I don't think he will be broke soon

Oksana thinks she will have access to any and all money given to Lucia, so the more money given to Lucia the more Oksana will benefit(in OG's mind) The Baby needs her own attorney and accountants to administer her trust accounts. The money should be for Lucia only, not her greedy mother. Gibson is trying to protect his daughter and what is hers, Oksana and her attorneys are a pack of money hungry helldogs.

This whole trust fund thing is confusing. All I see is that the only one who will get screwed is the child. There won't be any money left for her after her so-called mother and her lawyers get their greedy hands on it.
