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.

it wouldn't be the first time a mother used her child in hollywood to enrich her own life.... remember brooke shields and her mother? I'm sure people on here are aware of how often a child gets used for financial gains in hollywood

Lets hope not... I think the more she is around Mel and his Family the more she will like it, I think the grifters will treat her as an outsider, cause she is standing in their way of their millions..
and a reply back your way as well wondering

You're one to talk. You know, there are people who respect Mr. Gibson, who really love him. You think in terms of $$ signs. Maybe you should look that one up and see what the psychiatric field says about that obsession. Just classify it as greed to make it simple.

Ira just don't bother to respond...it's just a baiting tactic to draw you in to get her into a spewing garbage match and so she can fill her void for attention...

Celebrity Worship Syndrome is a mental illness which many of you suffer from.

Within a clinical context the effect of celebrity might be more extreme, particularly when considering extreme aspects of celebrity worship. Maltby, Day, McCutcheon, Houran and Ashe (2006) examined the relationship between entertainment-social, intense-personal and borderline-pathological celebrity worship and obsessiveness, ego-identity, fantasy proneness and dissociation. Two of these variables drew particular attention; fantasy proneness (time spent fantasising, reporting hallucinatory intensities as real, reporting vivid childhood memories, having intense religious and paranormal experiences) and dissociation (reflects the lack of a normal integration of experiences, feelings, and thoughts in everyday consciousness and memory and is related to a number of psychiatric problems).

Though low levels of celebrity worship (entertainment-social) are not associated with any of the clinical measures, medium levels of celebrity worship (intense-personal) are related to fantasy proneness (around 10% of the shared variance), while high levels of celebrity worship (borderline-pathological) share a greater association with fantasy proneness (around 14% of the shared variance) and dissociation (around 3% of the shared variance, though the effect size of this is small and most probably due to the large sample size). This finding suggests that as celebrity worship becomes more intense, and the individual perceives having a relationship with the celebrity, the more the individual is prone to fantasies.

Cutting and pasting from Wikipedia is plagiarism. You have violated the Wikipedia user agreement by posting the above as is. I am sure TMZ frowns upon folks illegally posting in this forum.

Shame on you for trying to pass the work of others off as your own work!

Actually you do have a point. She's quite obvious about her obnoxious obsession. She even made a point to be the center of attention when she was filmed hitting another car with her car door. Shows real class, doesn't it?

What I really find funny about that clip is she is using the Paris Hilton trick of making it look like your on the phone so you don't have time to anwser questions..lol..
