Mel Gibson Arrives at Court In Custody War

11/22/2010 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson just arrived at the L.A. County Courthouse in downtown L.A., ready to do battle with Oksana Grigorieva over the custody of Lucia.

As TMZ first reported, Mel's lawyers will argue Oksana should be stripped of custody and denied overnight visits.  Mel wants the judge to give Oksana visitation, but only if it's supervised.

UPDATE 9:15 AM PT -- Once inside the court, we're told the atmosphere was extremely tense and that Mel and Oksana have not interacted.

The court houses downtown have underground parking and entry in to the lobby. Notice how Mel chooses that route while Oinky wants to parade herself through the paps?

I'm confident Oksana will do "whatever it takes" to convince the court to leave the ruling as it stands. I wonder where she's going to have lunch today?

On her knees, of course.

Hopefully, this will turn out well, for Mel. I pray for little Lucia. I think she is in danger in her current situation! And wouldn't OG be obligated to pay child support if he gets custody? It would be only fair!

Good Luck Lucia...may the judge pull his brain out of his rear and finally realize that this case is not about your parents...it is about YOU.


I hope Mel gets at least a trial custody to see if she would really be better in his care. She has had a year and she turned this poor baby's first year of life into a circus.

Oh yeah, that's a responsible Dad. Tear a baby away from the Mother who has been taking care of her 90 percent of the time...since she was born. That is just so unfair to this poor, innocent child.
Mel and his lawyers clearly are just angry and embarrassed and want to punish Oskana. They are not thinking of this baby, who would be permanently damaged and scarred from not being with the woman who has been her main care giver for a year. Do what you want with the money, but please do not make this baby suffer. Once again, Mel's judgement is being warped by his anger and temper. For once, Mel, think of your child, this innocent baby....and not wreaking vengeance on your Ex. Sue Oskana, hurt her financially if you want, but do not put YOUR BABY IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS...DO NOT USE HER AS A BARGAINING CHIP...YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THIS WILL HURT THE BABY, TO SUDDENLY NOT BE IN THE CARE OF HER MOTHER.
This just shows that, once again, Mel is only interested in salvaging his reputation and career and doesn't give a damn about this baby.

Oh man, for some reason this put in my mind a song from years ago
"do the shekel check"! I KNOW those aren't the right lyrics, but I can't get that out of my head!

I predict Mel will get custody.
The court might be considering Oksana's upcoming charges. It's probably safer if Oksana doesn't have custody on the day she's charged with extortion, she'll be pretty angry and unpredictable.

I noticed one of the reporters had a British accent, maybe it's expected that Oksana will lose custody today, if they sent reporters from the U.K., they must be expecting a big story !

TEAM MEL !!

This man is trying to deprive his own daughter of her mother in an attempt to avert focus from his own actions.

Despicable. Good bye, Mel.

Good Luck Mel!

Lock this gold-digger extortionist up and give the child to her loving father.

Kim the Troll... I thought trolls lived under bridges, not rocks.

At least they get internet reception under the bridge. If you'd been paying attention you'd know that Ox hasn't had care of the baby 90 percent of the time. She's too busy wandering through shopping center parking lots giving impromptu interviews, meeting with lowers and her bodyguard, who was never around the baby being an armed felon and all that, according to Ox...

Oh... forget trying to reason with you. Crawl back under your rock and leave the discussion to people who have been paying attention.

I beg to differ Kim. All Mel has to do is reassign the nanny that has been caring for Lucia at Oxy's house back to his house. Lucia won't even notice a blip.

LMAO @ you. You're post would make more sense and be pretty accurate if you substituted Oxy for Mel. Have you been under a rock? Have you not noticed the multiple scenarios this woman has used? LOL What a sheep....

Tellthetruth, f-ing hilarious, orgasm, lol.

Someone (Fuddy?) asked last week for movies where someone slapped someone else to bring them back to reality. Remember Airplane? There's a line of people waiting to slap the hysterical women, some holding baseball bats and tire irons. Too Funny.

Praying hard for you today, Mel. We're with you in spirit.
