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.

If Judge Gordon does not take away primary custody from Ms. Oksana, the least he could do is make sure Lucia's time with Ms. Oksana is monitored. I do not know California law. Is it possible to assign a monitor to wach over Lucia while she is in Ms. Oksana's care?

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.

The truth? Her version of the truth changes every day. The only tragedy is that Mel got involved with this scammer in the first place.

She was warned by the judge not to talk to the media because she could loose custody. She made the decision to go on LK. She rather trash Mel than take care of her child.
She should loose Lucia and be sent of to jail.

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?

Does this apply to non citizens? Oh and isn't there a pending case going on? She try to use the public opinion to sway the court options. Now if she is a good mother she wouldn't be doing all this talking. If she kept her mouth shut from the beginning she probably had better chance of prosecuting Mel. More she talks more she contradict herself and now may lose custody of Lucia. Mel wasn't trying to get full custody of Lucia until she went on Larry King Live.

Didn't Oksana take Russian Mob money with Lucia as collateral? They won't be happy! She should be deported after she gets out of jail.

So everything that Oksana said on Larry King, about this being Mel's plan all along as punishment for leaving him is true.
First, those ridculous stories about her being a self abuser,
and now right on their heels he is filing for sole custody.
He says she has a mental disorder with no proof because she is
claiming he has mental issues with plenty of proof.
If he is and his lawyers are openly abusing her this way imagine how he treated her behind closed doors.
Mel is a man who hasn't heard the word no in decades from
anyone, he always gets his way and he is hellbent to get his
way this time too.
His power, money and influence has gotten the domestic abuse
charges delayed till after the custody case is heard. If he
got convicted of that he wouldn't stand a snowballs chance in
hell to get custody of the child.
What other celebrity with less power and influence has managed
to get assault or domestic abuse cases delayed and stalled this
long? Did Chris Brown,Martin Sheen or any other abusers?
He told her on the tapes nobody would believe her, and even though she has all this proof there are still bloggers whose
IQ aren't as high as room temperature online singing is virtues
and with no conscience lining their pockets doing it.
My question is why are sites like TMZ helping him?

Larry King is a joke, a used up old cheating on his wife joke. I wouldn't call that an interview last night, that was a f**ck fest. He let Oxy get all her lies out there for the people who do not keep up with her ever changing story. If they don't know the whole story and only hear her made up version then how are they to make an honest judgment? Are all these people Jewish? Garbus Horrorwitz, Gordon, Dr Sheldon, King.....? Larry needs to make things right, I couldn't stand hearing King say over and over that they haven't heard from Mel, DUH he was the only one following the courts gag order. I can't take much more of this, I am ashamed that LaLa Land is part of our country and that the whole world is laughing at our judicial System because of them.

Maybe LK is a friend of Mels and baited her? Or maybe he did his research and realised exactly what Oksana was about?

Next stop? Dancing with the Stars. Ludicrous. Whoever said Oksana will NEVER keep talking, is right. Unless Gordon grows a couple, prepare yourselves to view her on....The View, Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight, and maybe even the Tonight Show.

I'm still trying to figure out how he could "pursue her heavily" while "hardly ever seeing her" during the first 9 months.
