Mel Gibson -- Kid Tested, Father Approved

3/20/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson is set to begin his court ordered community service at a kid's charity in L.A. soon -- and  he's already getting support from some of the parents ... TMZ has learned.

In fact, one set of parents associated with Mending Kids International tells us they're more than happy to help give the actor a "brand new start" because Mel has helped fund a life-changing series of operations for their foster son over the past couple of years.

James Nicol tells us his Ethiopian-born son Berhanu was only able to undergo an expensive series of medical procedures to help fix severe spinal issues ... thanks, in part, to Mel's generosity.

Nicol says his family is still active with the organization ... and they're excited for any assistance Mel can provide ... despite the fact his community service is the result of a plea deal in a domestic violence case.  

James says he completely trusts the actor around his child ... saying, "If Mel was coming over to our house to play ball with my son, I would not be the least bit concerned."

But Oksana goes for both, gets knocked up, then moves on. There was an agenda, and it wasn´t the search for "love". she is a definitely user and she's gotten exactly what she wanted from Mel, which is to make it big and get media attention.Her relationship with Dalton didn´t give fame or money and Dalton could escape before things got really ugly,but Mel hasn´t got such good luck.

I think she targets money and not personalities. I think she expected a nice payoff from Dalton but she missed. Next was Gibson and this time she is not missing.

E online reports that Mel had lunch with RDJ
yesterday, at In-And-Out-Burger in Irvine???
That is such an out of the way place to meet -lol!

According to E article, RDJ is determined to
help Mel get back to work in Hollywood.
It did not work with H2, thanks to Zach *&*^%$#...
Maybe RDJ can get a cameo in one of his movies.

The E poll shows 55% believe Mel should be
given another chance...

3 cheers for RDJ!

I am sick and tired of some people here still Mel Bashing.


PEOPLE THERE IS NO PROOF OF WHAT OINKY SAID TO THE MEDIA.
DV ORGS IN THIS COUNTRY DISOWNED HER, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU.


NO PROOF WHATSOEVER THE PIC'S HER FRIEND THE DENTIST TOOK LOOK AT THAT SMILE AND YOU CAN SEE THE $$$ IN HER EYES.

Remember this Woman tried to get Mel back a few months ago Remember the e-mail which was released her and other places.

NO BRUISING, CUT GUMS TRAUMA OF ANY SORT NO 911 CALLS A LITTLE THING CALLED EVIDENCE AS WE KNOW THERE IS NONE


THIS VILE BITCH ACCUSED DALTON OF THE SAME THING, AS DID HER MOTHER AND FATHER.
Just look at the press releases coming out of Russia

GET REAL Mel deserves better, I am so pleased Beaver is getting great reviews and doing well.

This Bitch should be in an orange jump suit in prison as we speak

does anyone know if the DNA was ever taken? Is Lucia for sure Mel Gibson's child?...and what are these rumors about Ox has been dating Mr. Gibson's son as well? In the last interview with Oksana's father he states that one of the Gibson's sons wanted to commit a suicide when he found out that Ox was pregnant...just wondering, why? Maybe, there is more to this story, just maybe...

I think that it was Sweetnut who wrote that Oksana slept with his son.And we all know that Sweetnut has a very vivid imagination :-)

According to some of those close to Mel, those that go to his church: yes it has been done and Lucy is Mel's child. Period.

Anyone that takes the time to help kids (like Mel and Robyn Gibson has), they're ok in my book. God bless the both of you !
