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.

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.

she is psychologically unstable and should have a court ordered mental health exam after all she has comitted as well..how will she feel if the judge puts lucia in a foster system until further notice because in my state that is very likely to happen!

Mel lightly slapped Oksana because Oksana was acting nuts and was shaking the Lucia like a ragdoll and oh guess what the judge warn Oksana not do interview on tv cause it could affect her custody and the greedy seahag fishlips defied the judge order goes on Larry King lying more and disrespecting the court system and judge and also she let the nanny wait 2 hours on satuarday before Oksana decide it was time handing Lucia over to the nanny and let see Mel went to get a restraing order to keep a felon bodyguard away from Lucia that Oksana hire to be around her and her kids and Mel love Lucia as person and Oksana use Luica as meal ticket and pawn

What is better for the child?

An honestly angry man at the nastiness exposed by the piano player. Although I am positive that anger has been directed in a positive direction.

OR

A lying, manipulative, gold-digging extortionist parading her 'victimhood' on national television and smearing the US judicial system and her baby's father.

Here is a picture of me as madonna, see how boooootiful I am? I have kitties and puppies too. Here, take pictures of baby and then someone will steal her and I show you how good I cry on cue. 'Dis baby will say 'Mel Gibson bad man' on cue!' I am so boootiful! He bad man and I am good, pure piano player.

I am an arteest! I am an arteest! How dare you say dat! Larry, you have to help me! I am an arteest!

Bleah.

lisa, just for a minute: try to assume that it is Mel telling the truth and assume Ox is the one lying. Just try it. What choices does Mel have to protect his daughter?

Tghere is undeniable proof Ox has lied repatedly. Mel has a verifiabe track record with te truth. Now: THINK: who is most likely lying? What should that person do to protect Lucia?

And even if you think that x is the truthful one: has she done the things you would have done to protect your child? Be honest with yourself about this even if you can not be with us.

lol...oh yeah, let's forget about the woman who is exploiting him for cash..and trying to hold hostage his access to a daughter to further her own desires... cause she is such a good parent! And I am guessing you think Charlie Sheen is a saint, even though Mel has never been charged or convicted of any abuse...

Annie... lol.. I just like to stick my two cents in even when I know that replying to some comments is pointless due to the fact that some poepl aren't concerned with the facts, but are more concerned with just banging the drum to their own music.

Mel did not admit to any abuse. He admitted to using reasonable force to keep Oksana's tantrum from escalating into a tragedy.
