Mel Gets $163K Legal Bill From Oksana for ONE Month

1/18/2011 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson just got a legal bill from one of Oksana Grigorieva's lawyers, and probably thinks the name of the firm is Bend, Over and Pay.

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Alan Shifman (aka lawyer #41) claims he racked up a $163,000 fee for work performed between October 15 and November 15, 2010.  He left the case after feuding with lawyer #39.

We're told Shifman is asking Mel to pay $600 an hour -- that means he worked about 272 hours during the month ... which translates to 9 hours a day, 7 days a week.

As we previously reported, Oksana's attorneys have asked Mel to pay more than $1 million in legal fees.

For Mel, it's even harder to swallow than a Ricky Gervais monologue.

Different Rules Apply    

Since when is a mistress, NOT WIFE, entitled to payment of legal fees by an EX BOYFRIEND. Baby or not, this is ridiculous!

Can't he just ask the Judge to lower the fee? I assume that is sort of normal procedure.

Dewey, Cheatham and Howe.

If only paying this bill would make Oksana disappear from his life, It would be money well spent.

Still waiting for the DA to file charges for Oksana.

This bill isn't new. I wonder if the judge has reviewed it?

This has to stop. This man should not be liable for the whore's bills. Let the pig pay them herself or lie on her back and give out freebies. She knows all about that.

And this is why people hate lawyers..60...0 dollars an hour is ridiculous. Doctors working on curing diseases deserve that, not lawyers. No offense, Harvey.

Those all not ALL his hours. TMZ you know better. Some of those hours are for his interns and staff.

all about the money    

Yea kind of curious why Oksana's attorneys are going to Mel to get paid? You would think they would check to see if their client could pay before they agreed to represent her. Besides doesn't there have to be an award in her favor to make Mel pay attorney fee's?
