Mel Gibson, Oksana at the Courthouse

11/10/2010 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson just arrived at the courthouse in downtown L.A., as did his nemesis Oksana Grigorieva.

Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva:
Sources tell us both Mel and Oksana will testify this AM. Oksana is trying to yank overnight visits as well as some visitation from Mel.

Even more significant ... both Mel and Oksana will be cross-examined. Fireworks expected.

On her way into court, Oksana said, "I'm fighting for my daughter and for her safety and that's all I'm doing. There's no money involved. It's all about my daughter."

Mel and Oksana:
UPDATE 9:30 AM PT: Oksana's mom -- who was subpoenaed -- was ordered by Judge Scott Gordon to leave the courtroom because she's going to be called as a witness. 

And Sorrell Trope, who repped Oksana until recently, just left the courthouse after asking for Mel to pay his firm's attorney's fees.  Sources tell us Trope asked for around $200,000.

UPDATE 11:00 AM PT: We know the identities of some of the witnesses who will be testifying today. Mady Shany, Oksana's facialist, is in the hallway, sitting next to Oksana's mom. Also in the hallway -- Jimmy Hoyson, the music engineer who claims he saw the explosive January 6 fight between Mel and Oksana.

UPDATE 1:41 PM PT: Mel is heading back into court. It begins again...

It might serve Oksana well to stop trying so desperately to strip Mel of his visitation. I have a male friend who was in an almost identical situation, ex-wife claimed abuse, claimed he was a danger to the kids, 'forgot' about showing up for supervised visits, etc. Eventually the courts ordered that both parents had to speak to a special advocate and what not, and after speaking with both parents and the children, the advocate recommended that if the mother continued with her efforts, full custody should be given to the father because he seemed better able to abide by the court rulings and didn't appear to want to destroy the mother/child relationship.

It's despicable that she is trying to take away his legal right to see his daughter. She is the one being investigated for extortion. She is the one that fabricated this whole mess. It's disgusting that she can legally take him to court while she is being investigated for several felonies. She should be in jail while they investigate, only in America. She's not even a citzen, she has more rights than you. Doesn't even pay taxes.
