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.

At least Roby and Mel have settled. i can imagine Oksana thinking she has a right to Robyn's money and try to get it.

Oksana and her 40plus lawyers are *gasp* greedy. Nothing new here. Although it is good that TMZ is covering it unlike other sites.

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.

it was probably doing well until oksana was signed as an artist....
5 million spent on her records and music videos, personal recording engineer, ghost writers, and composers, musicians who were paid huge amounts of money to actually pretend to enjoy working with her, while praying to god that their names don't appear as credits on her albums for fear of ridicule by their peers.

5 million wasted for a gold digger with no talent

Robyn would have 50 percent vested interest in Konsies cd and music videos. I wonder if she will sue for 2.5 million.

Oksana, has done nothing but use the baby for money. Jesus Christ the baby is all of 1 year old.

Mel and Robyn Gibson, their kids. That's their business.

All the good and all the bad and everything inbetween.
