Mel Gibson to Appear in Court to Fight Oksana

11/21/2010 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson will be front and center in L.A. County Superior Court on Monday ... as his lawyers ask the judge to strip Oksana Grigorieva of custody and award it to him ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Mel is appearing because he wants the judge to see how serious he is about getting full custody, on grounds Oksana is hurting Lucia by going on what he considers a public smear campaign rooted in lies. We're told Mel's team believes Oksana's conduct -- especially in the face of Judge Scott Gordon warning her to stay silent -- smacks of instability.

As we reported, Mel also wants Judge Gordon to give Oksana supervised visitation only and no overnights with the baby ... at least for the time being.

Sources tell us ... Mel will ask the judge to make the order last for six months, after which the issues can be revisited.

Ray: To answer your queston, I don't know what Mel was doing, and I saw no camera, so this is a different incident, however, he was in a rage, and was talking nonsense--just babbling about something in an effort to intimidate the cameraman. The problem? It shows how he acts toward others.

You're full of it. He was not in a rage. In fact he didn't appear to be angry at all. Stop putting that whole incident in a false light.

Zip... ????? if not recorded (and not the incident which Ray relates as being non agressive) how do we know you did not just make this up.. sounds like you are on the side of the fabricated stories so its hardly a stretch.... Hi OXYwitz!

Mel is a text book abuser. He is vicisous, selfish, spiteful,
hurtful, revengeful. Nothing is his fault he is always forced
to abuse. He isn't thinking of his child he is thinking of
himself and his pride. How dare someone say no to him and
leave him. His actions aren't in Lucia's best interests, his
actions will create another Lindsay Lohan and put the child
in years and years of rehab and therapy.

"First, Mel needs to go to jail for spousal abuse then go to anger management training."

Uh, Mel Gibson NEVER abused his spouse. His wife has already provided the court with her declaration stating such.

Miss Grigorieva is merely a whore looking for a payday.

You owe it to all the men in the world... literally all the men in this world - TO BEAT DOWN THAT THING - so she will set an example to all other wannabee lazy WHORE FEMALES (yes... virtually all women between 20-59).

For decades now, men have let these THINGS walk all over us because it's easier to just keep our mouths shut rather than stand up to these THINGS on a day by day and yes... sometimes a minute by minute basis - keeping SANITY in our households and ORDER in our lives.

When virtually every woman alive now models her life after these Hollywood Whores who go from one man to the next - extorting her way through life - sucking the LIFE out of the men - sucking th life out of her family - MEL ! ! ! MAN ! ! ! YOU NEEDS TA BE THE FIRST OFFICIAL MALE WHO STANDS UP AND SCREAMS "NO MORE B I T C H E S !!!"

Good luck on Monday. And frankly... if I can get a ticket from Detroit to LA today - I would love to show up to court on Monday for TEAM MEL !!!

@JLS -

Holding or shaking a baby? Two very different scenarios.

If you are going to bring an event up then have a citation or a credible source to go with it. I have seen two instances recently with Mr. Gibson. One is when Mr. Gibson walks up to the paps following him. They have a tit for tat convo where the papa try to provoke him but he does not bite. During this event Mr. Gibson is taping them.

The other even is when Mr. Gibson comes out in a disguise. I do not remember a conversation happening during that time.

How can you compare to Lindsy? Kids are troubled when their parents neglect them, not when they fight for their attention, not to mention all that Mel is providing for the baby, more than almost any other baby in the country. I doubt the child will grow up feeling uncared or unloved with all the love and attention being poured on it. Typical Democrat who can't think straight.

Does Mel really think this judge is going to give a man full custody that has admitted to slapping the mother who was holding the baby? That's utterly preposterous!

This judge won't give him custody with domestic abuse charges a possibility.

OJ Simpson was on trial for murdering his children's mother and the courts gave him custody. I just don't think the courts view a slap more harshly than murder. I also would think as someone that claims to be a lawyer would know that parents (mother or father) accused of domestic or other forms of abuse are given custody everyday in this country. And don't forget the courts even give custody back to parents who have been found guilty of abusing the children all the time. I personally don't think the judge will order a custody change at the time but I wouldn't wager any money on it either.

SOOTHE - The facts show you have not reviewed this whole episode. Hersay and fabricated evidence is not proof.

His wife is on record that over 28 years she never was at the end of any abuse from Mel as have similar statements from his children. The claims are made by a woman who has made similar claims towards various other exs in the past (incl a email to Mel making claims against her other childs father). She can not even remember her lies accurately .

As for the lilo comparison.. mel is unlikely to push his daughter into show biz spot light (who knows the 7 others) the same could not be said for Oxy who has already done so (not all the pics of Lucia with her mother.. her father keeps her out of lens range when with him.

Okay early preemptive strike before the usual bigoted Mel burn in hell....Gods punishing Mel remarks are posted:

Proverbs 5:
"For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;

*( She's a seducer who will flatter you, a sociopath who will lie)

"But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword."
*( she hates men she hates the people that she uses, and yes she will trash you like hell) Can't do enough for her!

"Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell.
*( she has no soul no heart and does not value life or the sanctity of other's lives..she will take you down to the dark pit...cause that's her abode)

"Lest you ponder her path of life— Her ways are unstable; You do not know them."
*( yep run for your life cause today she loves you and tomorrow she wants you dead) mentally and morally unbalanced...

"Therefore hear me now, my children, And do not depart from the words of my mouth."
( be very careful)

"Remove your way far from her, And do not go near the door of her house, "...
*( or let her in your house or church...and it won't actually be a house or hers...more like a brothel)

"Lest you give your honor to others, And your years to the cruel one;"
*( she'll will wreck your reputation career life and keep you legally bound to her forever)

*Lest aliens be filled with your wealth, And your labors go to the house of a foreigner;

( yep russian foreigners are living off of you... you'' have to sell your businesses and assets...everything you and your family worked for will become hers..and her lawyers....and her parents.....and so on)

Seems fairly prophetic....God will make a way for Mel and his family( real family) .

Okay, that's my "spiritual" contribution:)

Written thousands of years ago it certainly defines the Oksana's of today:

Can you even imagine what would happen if the judge gave Mel custody?
I bet she will go bananas in the media claiming even more insane stuff then she is doing now....

Zip, the only person talking nonsense in that situation was the paparazzi cameraman. He and a few other paps were following Gibson around in his car filming him. Gibson stops the car, gets out and walks back to the paps. As he approaches, you can clearly hear one of the paps say 'we are going to be rich'. So in other words they are happy for Gibson to come and talk to them, BECAUSE THEY CAN MAKE MONEY OUT OF VIDEOING HIM. When Gibson gets to the car he starts talking to the paps and films them on his phone (they started filming HIM first, so they shouldn't have anything to complain about!).One of them clearly feels stupid and starts ranting AT GIBSON , not the other way around. Gibson is very calm and polite (and seems mildly amused). He even says 'have a nice life' at the end before going back to his car. The pap-guy waits for him to go a certain distance and then gets out and starts yelling at Gibson again.

So who do you think was out of control in the situation? When I watched it, it certainly didn't look like Mel!
