Hiya LA.... The take away food got me too - what 13month old baby eats take away? If she is feeding that baby the likes of McDonalds and KFC someone seriously needs to look into her parenting abilities!

Hiya LiL'
I really thimk someone needs to monitor this child. Oinky might possibly be suffering Munchausen by Proxy. I really believe she might injure Lucia just to frame Mel. Someone needs to step in!!

i should not have to leave a comment. she is a money whore. thats the fact.

child support should never for a baby be more the 2.000 a month its a baby they need food and clothes unless she is unfit to take care of it and needs to hire a person to raise it.
but then she is not the mom. she is a liar

Hiya LA: Munchausen by Proxy is a serious, sometimes deadly, condition. Someone should definately be keeping an eye on this woman.

It really, really bugs me that the mainstream media (at least here in Oz) are all too willing to call him "Mad Mel" whenever his name is mentioned but no-one has the balls to properly investigate Ox and her past and present behaviour.

She has a TEEN AGE SON AND DOES NOT RECEIVE $50,000 A MONTH FROM HIS FATHER. The older a child becomes, the more expensive they are. She's only getting $2,500 per month for Alexander. I strongly suspect that many of these "so called" expenses that she has listed are already being taken care of upfront by Mel Gibson. SHE SHOULD REALLY BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF BECAUSE I DOUBT IF TIMOTHY DALTON SPENT $50,000 A MONTH TO SUPPORT THEIR ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD WHEN SHE AND ALEXANDER LIVED WITH HIM!!! She's only trying to squeeze money out of Mel Gibson that she'll never receive from anybody else. The $20,000 per month that the Judge awarded her should have been a "REALITY CHECK"!!! HER ATTORNEYS ARE TURNING HER INTO A "LAUGHING STOCK" AND SHE'S "TOO DUMB" TO SEE IT!!!

I wonder what Timothy Dalton has on her, she gets $2500 a month and she isn't going after him for more money....

Second thing , she has a legal right for child support not for spousal support...
So all the expenses for her should be off that list.
Go work for your own money , you greedy bitch.

Third I don't know about you people but $ 2000 on clothes every month?

A nanny ?? What for she is a stay at home mom right you can take care of her yourself or is that what she pays her mother to take care of Lucia?

This is really ridiculous !!!

The $5,850 a month entertainment is probably spent on spy stuff against the US. I wonder if Mel ever regrets leaving his wife and children for this hag, money grabbing communist.

toys got under education
I doubt she takes her to kid theater or circus ticket is 5-10$

would have been more significant

The $500 for cell internet is probably for 5-10 PR lines for the paid bloggers.

$240,000 a year as child support? you could support an entire town in Haiti on that much. The courts should give her what the average single mother in CA gets in support, not a penny more. Then let Mel contribute the rest to charity. Otherwise, the courts are just encouraging more women to go do what this gold digger did.
Seeing this, I can now understand some of Mel's infuriation; I'd be beyond angry, too.
