Mel On The Hunt for Oksana's Oxycodone Rx

11/26/2010 11:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva were in a legal brawl over Oxycodone ... TMZ has learned.

1123_mel_oksana_EX_TMZ_02

We've obtained court documents in which Mel's lawyers were trying to get hold of Oksana's medical records -- specifically records from CVS pharmacy, after Mel found a bottle of Oxycodone prescribed to Oksana.

Mel's lawyers argued ... by lawfully finding the bottle and seeing the information on the prescription bottle, Oksana waived her right of privacy, and that Mel had a right to see exactly how may prescriptions CVS had been filling.

Oksana's lawyers bristled, arguing right back that Mel was on a "fishing expedition" and that the information was "irrelevant."

There's no indication the judge has ruled on Mel's motion to get Oksana's CVS records.

It's called Discovery. That the legal term for a fishing expedition. You catch your shark with the procedures of Discovery. Discovery can be a simple and easy as ask asking a question and receiving an answer.

They should have titled this thread: Ox addicted to Oxy?

TTT
Maybe this is why she changed her name from Sasha back to Oxy. Easier to remember as Oxy while on oxy.

Why can't Mel's Team not find out about method of treatment & medications prescribed for injuries attributed to him due to alleged domestic violence charges???

"THIS CAN ENDANGER THE BABY'S LIFE"
If Oksana is on Oxycodone (which is similar to Morphine but does not last as long) and operates a vehicle with the Baby inside this can be very dangerous to both. The medication causes respiratory depresion and sedation.

Perhaps she needed it when he slapped her so hard it knocked off her veneers.

There are good reasons to take Oxycodone. I took it when I came out of surgery in July. It doesn't mean that every single person who takes it is addicted to it. I was on it almost 2 months and got off as quickly as I could because I knew how addictive it is.

Little aussie reader and Jus Another Viewer!!! Thank You for explanation! Now it's clear why does her mother stay with her (Ox needn't eyewaitnesses) I drew attention she's looking not naturally (her articulation), when she attended cinema with her son (she movied some slow, like she's in a dream).
She mustn't drive and it's worriedly about Lucia. Mel and his lawyers are right, she needs to be under adding control when she's with baby!

Strange that she thinks it's OK to take pictures of Mel's (supposed) prescription bottles....but it's "irrelevant" when it comes to her drugs. Just saying...

In a child custody battle, the judge can order mental and physical exams of both parties. Obviously, if there is a question that Oskana is using heavy drugs, it must be determined how often and for what purpose.

DAMN... I had back surgery and never got Oxycoton before or after.

What the hell is wrong with this one, that a doctor prescribed a controlled substance that has an addiction rate throught the roof???

Oks and Ho are more and more reminding me of Anna Nicole ana Howard K. Stern.

Just about as bad if not worse than Lindsay Lohan being on "Dilota" for THIRTY + days after a wisdom tooth extraction...
Abuser make excuses for themselves, while accusing everyone ELSE of being ABUSERS!!
It's called "State of DENIAL" and from what I have seen Octosana is DEEPLY in Denial.. of EVERYTHING!!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if there was lets say a bit of an addiction to oxycodone courtesy of all the plastic surgery she has had. Her lawyers bristling is almost like a dead give away. If there is not a problem you don't have to defend ie "fishing expedition" and "irrelevant" information. It becomes relevant in a custody battle. If they have nothing to hide they should have no problem providing the records, and why shouldn't Mel see them it is either him or Lucia that is paying for the drugs anyway. Everyone likes to see what they are paying for. Although if I were his lawyers and suspected drugs I would go for hair samples rather than prescriptions. Hair doesn't lie, (unless its all extensions) and pharmacies can be changed.

This is very SAD NEWS, especially if Oksana is taking that many pills a day which could indicate ADDICTION.

If true Oksana is driving the BABY around while

"UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THIS DRUG AND CAN GET INTO AN ACCIDENT AND KILL THE BABY AND HERSELF".

The medication causes respiratory depression and SEDATION with much less then what Oksana is allegedly taking.

Mel should take immediate steps to protect his child !!!

- who is the Dr. prescribing the medicine?
- was she taking it while "pregnant"
- is this just for oxycodone, or her complete medical history
- maybe it's for her plastic surgeries?
