Oksana Grigorieva

Defies Judge with Larry King

11/14/2010 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has defied the judge in her custody war with Mel Gibson by taping an interview with Larry King Saturday night, TMZ has learned ... and it's Oksana's opening salvo in "speaking out on behalf of battered women."

Oksana did the interview (which was supposed to only last a half-hour but ended up an hour) along with one of her lawyers, Marty Garbus -- this despite Judge Scott Gordon telling Oksana that if she did media, she might pay when it comes to awarding custody ... this according to Oksana's team.

Sources connected with Oksana tell TMZ she did the interview because "she feels she's been silent too long and feels bad for other battered women if she stays silent." Sources tell TMZ Oksana is now working with a group called Peace Over Violence -- an L.A.-based battered women's group -- and she's planning a number of news conferences in the near future.

We're told Larry King played portions of a number of the tapes Oksana secretly recorded, in which Mel goes crazy. King asks for her reaction to the various tapes.

And we're told Oksana repeats over and over that she believes Mel is a great father, but he needs therapy to deal with his issues so he can safely be around Lucia.

Oksana is also working with a lobbying group in Sacramento -- California Partnership to End Domestic Violence -- on battered women legislation.

Is there anyone left who is following this drama who still believes in Oxy's cause? If so, then you need a brain transplant, too.

His name would be Judge Gordon

The Judge doesn't believe her. He's already been quoted as saying that Oksana and her lawyers are "disingenous at best".
I think he's afraid of offending Time Warner who is OBVIOUSLY backing her.
They have to find a way to arrest the executives at Time Warner if they are in on this, and I'm sure they are.

The judge is s***. 20K a month for a baby & Mel wasn't married to this wench. It makes no sense at all. None.

Mel should pull a Suge Knight & have Oksana go on "vacation"

Not in the least but you stated it so eloquently I thought there might be a slim chance they would listen...NOT....this is literally the worst thing for her...especially since the judge reminded her that custody might be affected if she does this...I quess her need to help other DV victims out weighs her child ....

...

she was doing the interview at the same time I was answering your questions yesterday

I realize the art of negotiation is to find the opposite sides soft spot and try to exploit it. I wonder if her interview with LK includes a caveat that she has the right to cancel the airing on 24 hours notice.

"And we're told Oksana repeats over and over that she believes Mel is a great father, but he needs therapy to deal with his issues so he can safely be around Lucia."

Mel is so great and in therapy according to you ....but you are going to smear him in public anyway until he goes to a therapist you can choose/control? Is this what she is trying to say? ANYONE does anyone understand this thing? W T F

Poor Oksana, single mother...

She's just making as much money as she can through the media, before the judge throws out the extortion case and her 15 min of fame are over. You don't think she's doing Larry's show for free do you? She's gets paid standing up, or on her knees.

It's sad to see someone completely manipulate the legal system the way she has. Like I said before, every gold digging whore in LA is celebrating Oksy's ruling last week, and trying to get Horowitz's phone number.

Mel has top flight attorneys working for him, but they follow the law and they do what the court asks of them. That's a big handicap when the other side plays by a different set of rules.

hard to believe that Mel has achieved and contributed so much in his life by being anything less then a decent human being. what has this Airhead amounted to? is she a sociopath? will she teach Lucia ethics? horrible faith for the child if she is denied the influence of a great man over this person

Peace Over Violence -- an L.A.-based battered women's group

When I read stories like this, the one thing that jumps out at me is, why are these groups that are suppose to be so knowledgeable about D V listening to and believing the crap that is being spewed from a proven liar and extortionist. It only makes them look bad and irresponsible in their judgment. To have this woman represent DV survivors is a slap in the face to true survivors and will only hurt their cause in the long run. People will no longer just believe what comes out of their mouth if they loose faith in then as a group. They need to open their eyes and see the whole picture before backing the wrong Ox, I mean horse.

I predict they are using these so called interviews and then cancel to prove that she has suffered with the public because of Mel ... I think your theory is good too.. And yes she was doing the interview as we were writing...how poetic....LMAO

On balance, her priorities seem to lie in destroying MG first and then.....the baby comes in second. She' s a mess. Validates everything everyone has been saying all along: the child is her ticket.

Oksana is like Glenn Close's character in "Fatal Attraction:" "I will not be ignored!" IMO she's a bigger fame whore than gold digger. If she weren't so evil I'd feel sorry for her, as she's obviously desperate for attention and adulation. And the fact that she can't get it through her thick skull that the public doesn't care about her or her "music" tells me she's seriously delusional to the point of needing a psychiatric evaluation.
