Judge Awarded Mel Gibson

More Face Time with Baby

12/17/2010 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson will get to see his daughter more than he has in the past, thanks to Judge Scott Gordon.

Mel Gibson Custody
As TMZ first reported, Judge Gordon modified the existing custody agreement late Thursday.

Now sources tell us Gordon has given Mel more time with Lucia, but not a lot more.  We're told the increase is measured by hours -- not days -- per week.  Sources say the increase for Mel amounts to a little more than one day a week.

According to the agreement Mel and Oksana Grigorieva signed in May, both have joint physical and legal custody of Lucia.  Under that agreement, Mel had visitation rights a total of 6 days -- with three overnight visits -- every two weeks. The judge has now increased Mel's face time.

It's a far cry from what Oksana wanted ... namely, to strip Mel of overnight visits altogether and to only give him monitored visitation.

Sources tell us Judge Gordon told the parties there were no winners or losers, but that the change was made for the best interests of Lucia.

I will also note that TMZ is back to misleading wording (mixing the per-week and two weeks apples and oranges) and unflattering photos of Mel contrasted to ones of Ox that show her in her best light. That and yesterday's ridiculous story on the recollections of a drug-addled thief say lots about the media's relentless devotion to its Trash Mel campaign.

LOL, funny you should mention the peanut butter cookies. Went to get one to have with my tea - all gone.

Would you settle for shortbread thumb cookies with homemade cherry/strawberry preserve?

Mel does not care about Lucia. He is doing this, because Jodie likes her, and wants to spend some time with her. Mel and Jodie are more than just friends. It has been rumored that they are in a devoted relationship for weeks now.

Miss Jodie and Mr. Mel have been in a devoted relationship for YEARS now. Devoted friends.

Miss Jodie is gay.

Odd, isn't it, that the supposed raging homophobe Mel Gibson would have such a devoted friend?

Oh hey, did anyone think to tell Ryder about that? Le Snort.

I thought I was the only person that called them The KarTrashians! Nobody graduates college, but everyone's got breast implants.

What kind of racist homophobe would have a lesbian as a best friend, Jodie foster. Also Gibson made Apacolypto and the entire cast was hispanic.

People who hate Mel seem to ignore these facts.

50/50 split.....Now she is no longer primary they are equal which should mean she has no reason to demand more money on the ground of having the baby more time then he does. Dam ....now she will have to fiqure out a new tactic to get his money
...must have been the reason for the glum looks yesterday.

Bet'ja... ten dollars she's still got a warning from the judge to keep her big mouth shut or lose what she is still getting......

Judges is happy he's got this particular stone off his back for the holidays,

Mels happy cause he get more time with baby without paying thru the butt to get to. and the mediation still stands

Only one ain't happy it Oxshanna cause she knows she's blew it and ain't no going back.....though the way she was eyeing the mystery man walking with her looks like her luck might have turned.......Hope he know what he's doing...

Oksana is a level 10 celebrity clinger, just trying to get famous guys to impregnate her.

I hate math.

6 days and 3 overnights/ 2 weeks (Sun -> Sat X 2) =
3 days and 1.5 overnight/ 1 week

Not knowing the exact schedule or how the time awarded is proportioned, it's hard to say where that "little more than one day a week" would fit in. The best would be increase the 1.5 overnight to 2/week.
