Mel Gibson Moves to Strip Oksana of Custody

11/18/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Mel Gibson's lawyers will appear in court on Monday and ask the judge in his custody war to award him sole custody of baby Lucia ... this according to court documents.

According to the documents, in addition to attempting to take custody away from Oksana Grigorieva, Mel's lawyers will ask Judge Scott Gordon to award her visitation, but only with a monitor.  And Mel's lawyers want the judge to deny Oksana any overnight visits with the baby.

 Mel's lawyers argue in the documents that Oksana's false and derogatory statements to the media about Mel and the attempt to sully his character show she is not acting in the best interests of Lucia.  Oksana trashed Mel last night on "Larry King Live."

As TMZ first reported, Judge Gordon has warned Oksana she could lose custody if she talked to the media.

I am praying for you Mel. I hope you do receive full custody of Lucia. I never thought I would ever wish a mother to lose custody of her child.

RIGHT ON! Stop that broad making a mockery of the U.S. legal system. Judge Gordon: GROW A COUPLE! Mr. D.A. DITTO! Charge this woman with extortion--NOW!

If Gordon doesn't follow through with his threat, then charge him with defamation of character, too, for enabling this woman to continue talking to the press, with NO repercussions!

I truly hope the judge gets his head out of his azz and steps up and slams it to Oksana for her defiance of the courts orders and he realizes that she is insighting all this.

Seems reasonable. She should be asking the Judge for help not Larry King.

Lord, can this get any uglier? Mel was a nutcase, yeh, and he made a bad decision when he got with this woman. Both of them are nuts.

She's going to need a lot more than Larry King's help. Go get her Mel!

Let's hope and pray that the judge is a wise man, or woman.

Sounds great, but I wouldn't get my hopes up...

Unless something changed at the courthouse, Mel's attorneys have a better chance of winning the Lotto than getting any kind of consideration in this case.

Mel, fire your lawyers and stifle the dopes on your payroll who post here. No one is fooled or impressed. Make peace with Oksana and be a man to the world and a father to your children. Your career and status as a human being are spiraling downward. Get yourself together.

Where is the First Amendment? Is this woman not free to speak? Are we all going to let a movie star walk all over the Constitution?

Nothing could be more cold and heartless than to deny this woman the custody of her child. She told the truth and it was a tragic tale. She should be given some comfort as should the baby by the judge.
