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.

Allowing Lucia to 'trick or treat' her way down the sex offenders registry would be preferable to allowing this unfit mother Oksana to retain custody. Still, the American justice system is grossly biased against fathers so the likelihood of the judge ruling in favour of Mel in this action would be remote under the best of cir***stances.

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! :)

Were this a normal couple - the judge - in this case the Commissioner would order evaluations for all (to a waiting bunch of court therapist favorites, conveniently lined up by attorneys for both parties)and ruling everything stays Status Quo until the reports come in. This way judges don't decide, it becomes dueling therapists. That's how the divorce and custody industry works. And if you weren't aware therapists are embroiled in and control the courts....then you're not paying attention. See www.Familylawcourts.com

I didn't think going in and out was allowed. Isn't that a disruption? But, then again, she always snubs her nose at the court.

does OG really suffer from Trichotillomania? an impulse control disorder characterised by the repeated urge to pull, and pulling, out one’s own hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and other body hair.
