Oksana vs. Mel -- Tensions and Stakes Are High

11/22/2010 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson are in the same courtroom right now as Mel fights to strip her of custody, but so far not a word has been spoken between them ... and the tension is obvious.

Mel has avoided making any eye contact with Oksana, often looking at the ceiling.

As TMZ first reported, Mel is taking a radical legal step -- asking Judge Scott Gordon to strip Oksana of custody, prohibit overnight visits with Lucia and only allow her supervised visitation.  And as we reported, Mel's lawyers want the new arrangement for the next 6 months, after which the judge can re-evaluate it.

Oksana has been in and out of the courtroom with her lawyers.  Several witnesses are in the hallway, including Oksana's mother, music producer Jimmy Hoyson, the nanny, and the private monitor Mel hired.

They've been in court since 9:00 AM and the hearing is supposed to last all day.

Keep refreshing for the latest updates ...

UPDATE 1:40 PM PT -- Oksana's mom is getting ready to take the stand, with the help of an interpreter.

In the end will be two corpses burnt to char, and one little baby Lucia who is going to suffer the most.

I don't blame him for not wanting to look at that Oxtroll mess. I'd rather look deep into a Porta Potty outside of a Mexican restaurant .... near a fat camp with an underground tunnel.

And let us not forget: she has been in English speaking countries most of her life. She's had plenty of money for clases etc. She simply didn't care to educate herself at ALL!

Your honor, he is winking at me. Your honor, he is rolling his eyes at me. Your honor, he made a fist -- I swear!

Your honor, you do not belong here -- don't you understand I am ready for my closeup? Your honor, 400 years of history is wrong.


Larry, you have to help me.

Really quick because my boss is hanging around today -

Vigil lamps are still burning for you Mel. The Theotokos and St. Michael the Archangel are with you in that courtroom. And we all know what THAT means! :)

She said "I can't talk to you guys" 17 times when asked questions outside the courthouse. What's the difference between them and Larry King? She spent an hour aswering questions to Larry King but today she can't talk to anyone?

Perhaps LK paid for the interview and the pesky paps don't? More than likely though, one of her lawyers finally got it through that thick skull of hers to STFU. Playing with a judges orders is just asking for trouble.

There's no way the judge will let Mel have Lucia all to himself after he admitted to slapping Oksana. That's abuse which he's admitted to. Then on top of that Oksana says he physically abused her on more than one occassion. Mel is an abuser. Lucia should remain in the care of her mother. Mel is throwing his weight around. Once a bully always a bully. This is his way of scaring Oksana. He doesn't want the baby full time nor will that happen.

Prob because she's playing dumb and is pretending that her lowers are explaining to her v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y what lies she needs to remember....
