Oksana DROPS Domestic Violence Claim Against Mel!

5/4/2011 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a shocking move in court today ... Oksana Grigorieva just dropped her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson.

1122_oksana_mel_EX_tmz_2

Oksana's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, announced to Judge Scott Gordon ... they would no longer be pursuing the claim that Mel's alleged violence against her is grounds to change the custody order.

Mel's lawyer, Stephen Kolodny and the judge were visibly shocked.

Sources tell us ... Oksana dropped the domestic violence claim as a gesture -- extending an olive branch in an attempt to settle the custody case.

And the DV protective order Oksana obtained -- prohibiting Mel from contacting or harassing her -- has also been terminated.  Sources connected with Oksana say she would like to be able to communicate directly with Mel, rather than using intermediaries.  No word on whether Mel feels the same way -- though we're guessing not.

Horowitz did not say if Oksana is still pursuing a civil lawsuit against Mel.

@ little ausie,

probably...

and now she heard Mel still
wants to make his Viking movie,
O$kanky wants to compose the "music"

What about her new CD?
When is that drek coming out?
Her PR guy said she was going to
work with a big name music producer,
that was last summer...

Everything O$kanky touches,
turns to dust - lol!
41 year old FAILED no-talent-arteeeest,

The "Queen of Ugly" is just up to no good. Atty 'witzo and the smogaborg of other attorney have taken advantage of MG. Even at one-third, still overpaid. I hope everyone is well here and keeping my fingers crossed this just may go through.

Report TMZgossip about an hour ago ..EW.. 9 minutes ago

Of course she would drop it. She doesn't have the money to afford this case...
...

she dropped the DV portion of the CUSTODY case.

It wasn't costing her anything to persue that, gibletz pays those lawyers fees
________________________________________________________________

OG is being billed by her attorneys for anything and everything they can think of, which includes costs to pursue DV in the custody case. Don't you think those attorneys put in for billable units when OG was stating in her deposition that Mel beat her during sex? Don't you think that her attorneys put in billable units when they went to court asking Judge Gordon allow DV in the case (and that article seems to have disappeared, because I can't find it anywhere). Anyway, OG's argument for wanting Mel stripped of custody was DV. She's the one that asked the court not long ago to make Mel submit to a psychological examination. Whatever happened with that? And now she decided to drop DV as an argument in her custody case? BS.

@ Fidel's Niece

Thank you for saying that Mel Said "You are hitting me". Because I remember his voice had suprise in it. And it just didn't make sense to me. She had to be with him to record that.But I wasn't going to get in an arguement over it.;o)

he either paid her off...or is back with her...

if he is back with her...he is as trashy as she...and I will never watcher his movies..and bad mouth him to the day I die.

If he paid her off..which he did one or the other...I will never see his movies again.

If he paid her off, he still has his head up her a@@, either way.. he has lost credibilty in my book and as bad as her.

Harvey said it's ABSURD she had
43 lawyers, 19 lawyer in one firm alone

Honey, if she really had something on Mel Gibson, she wouldn't have to go through 43 lawyers to try to nail his butt. Well, I wouldn't be a bit surprise if I see the woman go to College and go up to young men that just became lawyers, and tell them if you help me, I will help you. lol

Can you believe this line of BS from the latest ROL article? Geez -- this has got to be Horowitz speaking!

"Oksana wants what is best for Lucia and if her decision to drop the domestic violence claim isn't proof enough of that, it should be remembered that she walked away from a $15 million settlement, too, because she is a good parent," the source added.

Mel has addiction problems
not just alchohol...or cigaretes...

He said himself
"I could get addicted to anything"

He could have a sex addiction too...
like David Duchovny (Mel bought his house)
Isn't that weird? and Duchovny went into
rehab for sex addiction...

maybe Mel should do the same...
