Mel Gibson Shut Down Over TMZ Story

2/15/2011 9:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson lost a round in court after arguing that Oksana Grigorieva should be stripped of custody because she allegedly leaked info to TMZ.

0126_mel_gibson_tmz_ex
Sources connected with the case tell us ... Mel's lawyers argued to Judge Scott Gordon last week ... Oksana was not acting in the best interests of Lucia by allegedly telling TMZ what she said during her deposition.

TMZ broke the story ... Oksana claimed during her deposition that Mel beat her during sex

Grigorieva denied leaking the info to us -- and Mel's lawyers responded by getting declarations from everyone else in the case stating they weren't the leak ... so, they said, it had to be Oksana.

In the end, Judge Gordon told everyone to go home, insisting who-leaked-what was irrelevant to child custody.

Well, we know that the piano player's group expected outrage for the poor female because Mr. Gibson did not stay with her. So what, she just looked even more like a scorned con artist. Then the piano player tried to find other hookers just like her. Still not working. Pass the popcorn for the next silly allegations.

Too bad

There are at least two sides to every story. This story doesn't make any sense. I do like KM's take:

"My best guess is that the Judge may have stricken her comment off the record as it was a never mentioned on any declarations before that depo. We have to remember that it is her camp who releases the leaks...just like the tapes, she wanted her version heard in the public even if the Judge did not buy her new story of abuse and had it stricken as soon as she said it.
Why else would a Judge not deem it relevant to child custody when sealed info is leaked?"

But why would the judge not see it is 'parental alienation' even if her claims were stricken? The alienation part is very real.

It appears that the judge is not only friends with Whorowitz but is VERY good friends with Whorowitz.

Parental alienation is not against the law in California. That law did not pass (yet), although it is strongly disapproved as a custody ploy.

Tee hee

Sam,

It was Trope that the judge was friends with. If he is friends with Horowitz too, I've never seen that printed. Might have missed it - so if you have a link that would be great.

As far as the "parental alienation" goes, I agree it isn't good for Lucia that her mother is so immature and thoughtless about her children. However, we are only getting parts of the stories. That's the problem with gossip columns. You cannot really take anything at face value.

By the way - if Jimmy is her sound guy, why isn't any of her work listed on his imdb?

Sorry for barging in ..
Curious, NOBODY 'lists her'! Martin Garbus doesn't list her either .. Forgive me for being crass but it looks like they are ALL ashamed of her and are 'in it' just for the free Blow J.o.b.s. and mega && Gibson money :-)
