Mel Gibson ... Smokin'

what a mess    

Posted at 4:06 PM on Nov 11, 2010 by what a mess

Just wanted to post my opinion. Walking away would be exactly what Oxymoron would want then she'd be in court demanding 100 thousand a month since Mel doesn't want anything to do with her.

Sorry, but my OWN SON after a split from his fiancee refused to walk away from his daughter and I commend him for that. You just don't walk away, IMHO, from a child you love. Besides, Lucia from the time of understanding would be hearing from her mother how her father abandoned her. Terrible thought eh?

You are RIGHT ON THE MONEY. Oksana would LOVE to see Mel give up then she'd haul his butt back to court for more money (like you said). I'm sure she'd put the spin on it that she needs more money because of the 'emotional stress" she would be under having to care for her meal ticket all by herself.

Mel WILL continue his fight and he WILL WIN (it's just going to take a long time it seems).

I'm 100 percent PRO MEL.

I guess I'm just so frustrated with this PROCESS. And I keep thinking the cops/DA/Judge Gordon will step up to the plate and throw the book at oskana.

But they don't, and it goes on and on and on.

My "idea" I just started posting yesterday, I figured Nov 10th, the Judge would rule for Mel. Also, people have been saying for a few months, after the elections the DA would arrest oskana. Well, the 10th came and went.

So, I'm thinking, it's a stacked deck against MEL. And he's paying both side lawyers and the MEDIA is posting "crap". "oh, look MEL is smoking", ok ,look at oksana and baby, oh look, mel in car with lawyer. It's crap.

So hence , give up the custody thing and in a couple of years go again for 1/2 custody.

I'm not even writing this for the people here, but maybe someone Mel knows could repeat the "concept" to him.

Because the lawyers have an interest in him to keep fighting. Even oskana has an interest for Mel to keep fighting. The Media has an interest for Mel to keep fighting. If he gives up custody, he just pays child support and he will not have to worry about oskana saying "Mel is hurting the baby" and all the made up stuff she says.

Some of you people are thinking Mel is winning, I just don't see it. 99 percent of people posting feel what oskana is doing is wrong. But the cops do nothing about it, the DA does nothing about it, the Media does nothing about it. Hollywood is doing nothing about it.

I too am supportive of Mel and I understand your frustration with the case. However, if Mel did just "give up and walk away" then resurface in a few years to get custody it would not be that easy.

Oksana and whatever lawyer she had at the time would simply say "you gave up your daughter, you abandoned her, you left her and NOW you want her back.....Not a chance".

As you can see the courts dont seem to favor Mel at all and should he try to get custody after disappearing, they would definitely side with Oksana (as evidenced by their current actions that are CLEARLY in her favor).

@John - you are all kinds of wrong telling Mel to walk away from his child. What kind of father would do that? Lucia, like ALL children are a gift. Mel sees the gift that she is to him despite that wad of cosmetic injectables that gave birth to her. Lucia is a gift. She came into Mel's life at a time when his wife left him and his other children are grown. She likely has given the man a reason to live. I pray she sets and keeps him on the right course and fills his heart all the days of his life and so should you. He adores her and unlike that freak of nature that gave birth to her, to Mel she is more than a mealticket that needs a Brinks truck for transfers between homes. Bless her adorable, innocent, sweet little heart!

Nice try, the last thing I would ever do is defend Charlie Sheen. I'll tell you what, when Mel is tried and convicted of what you accuse I'll be happy to come in and rip him all over the boards.

I wonder if Mel's former agent who was Jewish and Gay knows all this about Mel.

Wow, you are really full of it! This man is clearly unstable and at the very least, extremely verbally abusive...how would you feel about your son if you heard him ranting and screaming at the mother of his child in that way, you'd be pretty angry at him right? Because it's wrong, and no grown man should act in such a way and get away with it, nor should he be made to be the victim!

Smoking, drinking, cheating is frowned upon in the regular Catholic Church..but I guess when you manifest your own church and beliefs..it"s acceptable..Gawd he looks old...Do some Botox dude!! You look like ****..

LMFAO...and the priests in a catholic church serve wine during communion, come to your house for supper and drink a couple of glasses and my priest, in all the years I knew him smoked. I guess my Catholic church was garbage too huh?

Do you read this stuff Mel? You must be so worn down - I think we all are from this craziness. I know I am. I don't like a cheater and I will not condone what you did but damn you didn't deserve all this mess. Next time, if you date again, go for class and character. Even Paul McCarty got burned with that Heather but this ugly OX is worse than Heather if that's possible. Do a background check next time? Ox is a piece of trash - how could you not see that?

Ah no, my son's have been in many verbal arguements with their spouses, but guess what, they get back from their gals as good as they give. I also have yelling matches once in a blue moon with my husband. Again your point was?

Dear Sweetheart,

I will add you to my list of people to pray for, which includes “Mel and his family” and even Oksana! If you believe in hell than I assume you believe everyone has a soul. Although many of us deserve it, no one should go there, simply because God did not make us for there. -- He made us for Himself & He desires everyone of us.

When she called his rants an “emotional rape” on an online video put out in connection with the people magazine article -- I was pissed would be a ~severe~ understatement! I couldn't even sleep that night I was so mad at her! So please don't think that I don't understand your anger, because I do. But I will keep you in my prayers to help you channel your ~justifiable~ anger into something more appropriate and useful.

God bless you & your family.

You are correct
I smoked off and on for 30 years
quit cold turkey a 20 times than kept picking up the habit again.
I finally looked at how I had failed and came up with a new plan that so far has worked for over 8.5 months the longest I have ever not smoked.
1. Behavior modification- quit smoking while driving after eating etc.
2.Start cutting back smoke a few less every day
3. Pick a day to quit and stick with it.
4. Take B12 vitamin helps you get through the stress
5. remind yourself everyday how much better you feel since you quit
so far so good.

Mel can have a smoke if he wants - it's legal-- until the Rob Reiners of the World decide what's best for everyone else.

Nicotine is more addictive than cocaine. Ask the experts.

You cannot be successful in quitting smoking because someone else wants you to. It has to be because YOU want to. I smoke, half a pack a day. I understand what stress is, and also know that nicotine can relieve pain. Surgeons used to use cigars as "anesthetics".

You got a problem with nicotine? Okay so what's your bag? Porn, cocaine, meth, sex? Everyone has a vice, and I wouldn't trust anyone who said they didn't.

My point, you idiot, is that you are wrong to defend a man who is so abusive and obviously out of his mind. I made that pretty clear, but not everyone can be the sharpest tool in the shed! You are wrong to portray his problems as being the fault of a woman, or that he is to be felt sorry for.
