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 have always wondered when the friend reported that to some media outlet if it included vitamins and that. 30 pills is a bunch.

There's nothing uglier than SEXUALLY ABUSING A CHILD! I would hate to believe that Hollywood has overlooked Polanski's crimes because of his Jewish ancestry???

...

it shocked me to see (and hear) the number of hollywood celebrities standing up for Polanski -- or excusing his actions based on the time that has passed or the current wishes of the victim.

TMZGossip -
Thank you. And you're right, transferring adds up - five hours in travel alone. The article did say the hours added up to little more than a day. So even subtracting the five hours for travel, that leaves 19 to play with.

I'm just glad that the Judge increased Mr. Mel's visitation.

It seems to me that things were VERY UGLY in Hollywood long before Mel Gibson surfaced as a celebrity. There's nothing uglier than SEXUALLY ABUSING A CHILD! I would hate to believe that Hollywood has overlooked Polanski's crimes because of his Jewish ancestry???

A FIRST Xmas present for Mel, Lucia and the Gibson Family.

Little by little ... until the extortion charges kick in __ :-)

Bet OxyMoron is begining to feel and understand the weight and the 'how' of the Legal System _ just a HUGE number of dubious tape recordings, public soundbites and 'Lary, help me!' telegraphed to the whole globe surely is NOT going to fool the American Judge :-)!!!

Still, I have a feeling there is more to it ... in Mel's favour! But nby IS talking at present :)

from the british SUN Newspaper......... MEL GIBSON labelled WINONA RYDER an 'oven dodger' have sparked fury from the Jewish community.
The Hollywood actress claimed the Catholic star made the poor taste remark to her at a party in the mid-90s. he is mad

Miss Oksana herself has claimed she was taking 30 pills a day to "calm down". I consider it another of her stretched truths.

Whatever dose of oxycodone she may be taking obviously does not impair her ability to drive, give interviews or function in court. A nanny cares for Lucia in any case.

Any has-been celebrity could slander Mel Gibson and those who already hate him will believe every word of it. Case in point, Wynona Ryder. Nothing needs to be proven just reported.

Mel Gibson is a good man and any women who defends Oksana is just another legs spreader wanting to be spoon fed by a sugar daddy. She's a whore in every sense of the word.
