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.

Oksana should not act crazily. It only harms herself more when harming others. What does she really wants? She already got the 20k a month plus rent free. Never understand why she keeps doing this in public. Mel is a person, the father of Lucia. Please treat him with some respect in the public. I wouldn't imagine you didn't use any judgment before you dated him. You caused a lot of damage to Mel and his families. He chose you earlier and now he is taking the consequence. You should do it too and move on. You should resolve the issue behind the door and/or in court, not pour privacy to the world voluntarily.

It only tells your state of mind is crazy and unstable. For the best interest of Lucia, probably it is better for her to live with the father.

Hey Bubba, I've said it before but attorneys accept personal property all the time in lieu of cash payments for their services. I think a $150K Steinway would go a long way towards paying someone their fee. wink, wink.

In the alternative a donation to a music school or a big bonfire would be in order. ;-)

TO #15 ~ Jay Singer: Mel is not walking "all over the Constitution." Oksana is, and she isn't even a U.S. Citizen. She has made a mockery out of the judicial system!

To #7 ~ Mark: You must be kin to Oksana. You apparently have no morals, no conscience, no heart, no soul or else you would not have posted such a horrible comment! You're full of hatred yourself! You're disgusting!

You da man, Mel. Just throw that woman under the bus. Women can't take care of babies, you know that. You're the king and all women should be your slaves. Maybe your little baby can grow up to be your slave.

She was warned and she really isn't acting in the best interests of the kids, either one of them. I am not sure the courts will do it since it is so hard to take a child away from the mom, but it isn't impossible. I really do think she went baserk and did treat lucia too rough/shake. How many times will it happen? How many times has Sasha been grabbed roughly.

Even if to make her get help and we all know she has something going on upstairs, and then if she is stable maybe she can have 50/50 custody.

If the courts are going to do it, do it while the baby is young and hopefully less damage will happen to her.

After Ox's performance and lies on Larry King, there is no doubt in my Mel should have full custody. That woman needs a straight jacket.

She stated in her email to him that she made the tapes for him only and did not intend to have them heard by her lawyers.
She states to Larry King she made the tapes because she wanted the world to know who killed her.

Two different reasons. She is covering up her motive by using Larry King.

Buy your baby. Spend another million or two million on your lawyers and get them to try to stifle the truth. Didn't you hear it? Didn't you hear the "dark side" as you call it? Those rants were satanic and they were you? Why do you continue to avoid seeking help for yourself? Oksana took a great risk but she did it to defend herself against your army. Are you that cold that you would deny your own child the freedom to be with her mother? Are you?

I certainly hope he does deny her.

@Jay Singer,

What you are describing (Oksana) is a person who is driven by altruism. To use the "phrase du jour", there is a disconnect here. All she has done is go back to court for more and more money! She is speaking out about DV to cover her ass for illegally taping phone calls.

Read about the Gloria Vanderbilt case. Her mother lost custody because she was spending the child's money on herself. Sound familiar?

Mel is no saint. Nobody is. he admitted slapping her, and maybe he did knock her veneers off; I read it doesn't take much to do that. Nonetheless, I read here daily real stories of DV not just a one-time argument. She is playing this to the hilt, and now it's coming back to bite her. Tough Sh*t.

I read the transcript from her interview with LK. I couldnt believe she could do that to Mel. She lives in his house she takes his money she has nanny's he pays for everything including her lawyers. And she does that. Well done Oksana I have absolutely no pity for you. That was just vile

Larry King most likely never bothered or had a braincell left to even try to get anyone from his staff to do a background check on oksana before allowing her on to his show.

he just read a script written by her attorneys with questions they spent a long time working on, and just let the old broken down automaton read them off to her.....
