Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson -- Custody On the Line

12/15/2010 6:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ just shot this picture of Oksana Grigorieva strolling into court for a hearing that will determine who ends up with custody of Lucia -- Oksana or Mel Gibson.

Here's the lowdown:

-- Oksana filed papers asking Judge Scott Gordon to invalidate the mediation agreement she signed with Mel back in May, which would eventually give both of them joint custody of their daughter.  Oksana is asking for sole custody and wants the judge to strip Mel of all overnight visits and only give him monitored visitation of Lucia.

-- Mel then filed his own legal papers, asking the judge to maintain the status quo and not void the May agreement.  But Mel's lawyers argued in legal docs ... if the judge does void the custody agreement, they want him to strip Oksana of custody and overnight visits altogether, because they believe she's shown she's unstable and potentially harmful to Lucia.

We're told the judge will take testimony today, and then noodle over what he's going to do.

Stay tuned...

UPDATE 1:42 PM PT: Mel has arrived at the courthouse.

Does anybody else find it strange that this custody hearing is starting at 2 pm instead of 9am? The last two times they hit court they were there forever. Wasn't Oxymoron supposed to be on the stand, yet again today, to answer questions about the LKL interview? Maybe Judge Gordon has got a decision made and just taking closing arguements, eh? (Does closing arguements work in a custody hearing?)

I'm hoping Judge Gordon will write an opinion - as he did for the McCourts - so Mr. Harvey can print some of it here. I agree it's unlikely we'll get a ruling today, too soon, unless the evidence is overwhelming.

Or, maybe we will see a role reversal, Curious. Maybe he'll rule that Mel gets custody with her getting three visits and one overnight and see if there is a change in the baby?

She probably thinks she's lower 43.

If she does become a lower, can she bill Mel for her time if she represents herself?

And the conspiracy theorists show up again, LOL.

Sam, I'm going by the fact the picture was, as TMZ says, just taken and the time on the post. Whether it started at 1 or 2, I still find it strange as they were supposed to grill her more about that interview. I'm just hoping this is going to be an in and out thing within a few hours because Oxymoronic and company managed to shoot themselves in the foot.

I wonder if Garbus has his pro hac vice yet? Or, is my TFH theory making sense? HEHEHE.

Maybe that's what's in that folder ... her billing hours. Only problem ... jacuzzi kazoo lessons don't count.

Ludmilla is giving a interview to the Russian media that Oksana is now a "lower" since Horowitz gave her 'Law for Dummies' books. Ludmilla says to the Russian media to tell Igor's mother, Jeanne... na, na, na, na, non. (since Igor is a real lawyer and not a drug addict as Ludmilla and Ox have claimed for years. It is Ox that is the drug addict on 30 pills a day.)
