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.

This development really isn't surprising. Ole Greedy has played all her "trump" cards and is up to her "eye balls" in debt. She probably needs Mel Gibson's assistance because, if I'm not mistaken, she has an immigration/deportation hearing pending. Without a "legitimate" employment sponsor, her chances of being deported are very likely. Furthermore, there's no telling what else the LASD discovered while they were investigating her for extortion which would have a "direct" impact on her ability to stay in the U.S. Considering all the "humiliation", "legal expenses" and "loss of income" that Ole Greedy has caused Mel Gibson, his family and business partners communicating with her "without any intermediaries" would be tantamount to "SUICIDE".

He's still under probation for three years due to his West plea which prohibits him from direct contact with her and Alexander. He'll need his intermediaries to prevent Ole Greedy from "setting him up" by "crying wolf" because she can "record" their conversations. "Karma is a mutha" and she needs to actually feel the "full force" of her actions for a change. It couldn't happen to a "more deserving" person! She "bit the hand that's feeding her" and now she's "groveling" to save her own miserable hide. She definitely has something "substantial" up her sleeve and CAN'T BE TRUSTED!!!

She never stood a chance in changing out the custody. NEVER. Judge Gordon already paid it no matter and with the West Plea, she had nothing.

You better believe she wants to talk with Mel directly. Hoping she can rope him back in before he leaves for Cannes. She finally realized what an idiot she was. Too late. If Mel has any sense left he will never talk directly with you again.

She's broke and her attorneys want to get paid. Needs to get publicity off the case so she can finish her extortion, now that Mel realizes the damage she can do when Mel tries to protect himself. It's not over until it's over!

DONT trust her Mel ...she is up to "something" NEVER meet alone with her, watch what you say around her (she is probably recording you). She probably wants more $$$$, look at how she tried (and nearly accomplished) in destroying you....

From the May 2 2011 issue of National Enquirer's gossip section..
Here's my submission for this years annual Gossip Awards in the "Mind-Blowing Celebrity Sightings" category.According to a reliable source who was out running around in the Malibu hills area known as Serra Retreat,he suddenly turned a corner and ran smack into mercurial movie star MEL GIBSON-who was strolling peacefully and affectionately with ex-mistress/baby momma/supposed mortal enemy OKSANA GRIGORIEVA!...WHAAT?...
My source,who knows Mel slightly but is not a professional reporter,did not dare ask the burning question:"WHY?"
Mel who owns two homes in the area,just nodded and moved on.
(Note TO STAFF:Please file under,What THE HELL!?")
If this is true,I can only assume the booze has caught up with him and he has wet brain!!!
