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."

1114_king_ox_tmz_exd_6
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.

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.

Judge Gordon can't "throw out" anything. He's only working on the child custody case.
The Major Crimes Bureau is still getting evidence from her computer and the D.A. is the person who decides if she'll be charged, not Judge Gordon.

Is she doing this to make her even more hated, therefore making it near impossible to have an "unbiased" jury pool?

I am speechless about her total disregard for orders by the Judge. She does exactly as she pleases, the hell with anyone else. This should open up the Judges eyes. She was told she may pay the price with custody if she does interviews, and she does it anyway?? So much for her lies about fighting for her daughter. So much for the best interest of her daughter. I thought she said Mel was a danger to Lucia? This women is full of contradictions, Mels a good father now, but she's trying to strip him of visitations with his daughter cuz he hit her when slapping Oksana across the face and threatened to kill them all? Which is it today Oksana?? It's all about Oksana and her self promotion, she has now found an outlet and a purpose in life since her music failed, she can speak out and help other domestic violence victims, book speaking engagements, etc,. What advice will she give, tape them, extort them, wait 6 month to report it and then go on a media smear campaign? GOOD GRIEF......

so there's the arc of larry kings career, from bouncing checks in North Miami to interviewing presidents and finally this person, before giving way to a british sleaze merchant. if CNN are chartered with 'keeping em honest' what does that say about our society. no doubt Mr Gibson declined to be involved in this circus. Lucia can be proud of her father

I have to laugh at the part where she ‘ feels she’s been silent for too long ‘.

I think attaching herself to DV groups … now … to further herself is really shameful.

This woman has absolutely no respect for courts. And if the judge told her that if she does this sort of thing that she may lose in the custody decisions just confirms that the baby is not her primary concern.

Is anyone else as sick of hearing/reading about Oksana as I am!?! Yes, she's a gold-digger. Yes, he's a psycho. Let's move on shall we?

Today is a sad day for battered women everywhere.

Their legitimate cause is being misappropriated and sullied by a lowlife gold digger who is using them to try to extort a settlement out of Mr. Gibson despite the fact that he has never laid a hand on her (and despite Ox's best efforts to provoke him into a cause of action.)

Sad. Women who have legitimately been harmed deserve better.

Anything Ms. Oksana says can be used against her. We have already witnessed a paper showing a doctor not noticing any form of abuse a day after the "event." Mr. Gibson's side only has to wait and see what Ms. Oksana puts out. This will give them a chance to debunk it once again. This is playing with fire.

The groups aligning to the story may end up being embarrassed.

The fame wh.o.r.e should explain on Larry King all her lies.The list of her lies should be send to Larry.
Can somebody point her lies,while asking questions?
I saw somebody published a list of lies...
And remember she said she had appendix removed without anesthesia: something is missing insight her body/nervous system/sole, she can't feel what normal people feel.
Judge Goron gave enough money to Ox not work all her life - she can spend all her time now on her self-promotion, showcases...
Everything related to Ox is insane, including her singing...

Right, he has absolutely no influence on the extortion case or the DA's final decision.

And Santa comes through my chimney every Christmas eve.

A Judge shouldn't give a Shi$ who offends, not if he is a good good Judge. A former prosecutor, that became a Judge...like Gordon, ought to be able sniff out BS like OG/DH when he smells it.

Keep seeing images of dancing ItoS...in Judge Gordon.

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.
