Oksana Grigorieva

Mel Should Pay $500k

For Traumatizing My Son

8/14/2011 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva made it clear to the family law judge Friday -- she wants a bundle from Mel Gibson, including a half a million bucks for the alleged trauma she claims Mel caused her 14-year-old son, fathered by actor Timothy Dalton.

TMZ broke the story ... Mel and Oksana met separately with the judge and a mediator Friday, trying to hammer out a settlement in the custody war that is laced with financial overtones. We're told Oksana asked for a huge amount of money for various reasons, and one involves her son Alexander (aka Sasha)

Oksana claims Mel traumatized the boy during the January 6, 2009 explosive fight, which ended with physical violence .... Oksana has alleged Mel knocked two of her teeth out, while Mel says he merely slapped her because she was out of control and endangering the baby.

Oksana claims Mel was abusive to Sasha during the argument, calling him names and scaring him so much he allegedly hid under the bed.

Oksana also claimed on another occasion Mel threw her son onto a table, but Mel's camp has denied it.

We're told Oksana and Mel are still far apart in settling the claims -- both financial and custody of Lucia -- and the mediation continues next week.

Pattic, glad you brought that up. I forgot anytime he is about to make money she rocks the boat to upset it. hmmmm. Wants more money and doesnt' want to make any. Of course who knows why her timing is the way it just is.

Gee this sounds like a new shake down since Mel's movie is getting ready to open on August 26. She is wanting some quick cash or else she will ruin this movie like she did with The Beaver. Fight her Mel.

Ha! I'll believe it when I see the hard evidence. Likely TMZ is trying to milk a fading story that once got lots of hits. Probably stunt journo based on the fact that the kid was recently in the press in a dumb story. Not that the Oks is incapable of stunts. Still so is TMZ.

@ Petrova Boklov
You go, girl! AWESOME post. Says it like it is. I felt my blood boiling as I read all your facts.
OX is truly a bottom feeder, the s*** of the earth. Makes one wonder if her sins don't cry out to heaven for vengeance...

to Ira Black:
I reacted on some claims here. And I can be wrong,but it is my impression that he is pampered.Why not? I bet he get everything for what his heart desire.(especially from his father). He definitely is not in any material need. Maybe he get lack of maternal love what is certainly sad ,but i don´t see him like total poor thing ,some act here as if he has been some poor orphan.Omg. He is not traumatized at all imo.That´s only Oksana crap.Vice versa. He seems to me to be very self-confident boy. His father is milionare and former bond star, boy goes to the exclusive school where Jackson´s kids are too, travels with father all over the world ( GB, Venice,Antigua), knows he is only his heir.
Plus you are right that he is good looking- he inherited father´s good look and he won´t have a problem to pick up a girls and he knows it! lol

Azlee, I also think that she was trying to get some money from Mel at the time of the Larry King interview because the interview was suppose to air the week before but instead it aired the same night as the birthday party for one of Mel's sons.

She's a money hungry ho. I hope she gets nothing but we all know that won't happen. Hopefully the judge can see through her for what she is. I only hope whatever she gets won't last her to long and she has to get a JOB. If anyone else marries her, they deserve whatever they get.

@Petrova Boklov - you nailed it. It a (very big) nutshell!

Would be nice to see justice not cave into the panhandling lying female's use of slander and extortion. Better yet, to show Sa*****hat his Mother cannot make a living by taking money like a thief at the expense of his reputation and emotional stability.

What happened to my comment from 3 hrs ago? I believe it was a reply under someone's post. Did somebody blow a gasket and have everything pulled because I don't believe that Mel walks on water?

Just Saying    


Any omissions would probably have been accidental. I am no Mel fan (but I hate Oks even more) and my messages have always been published. I don't think there are a lot of Mel fans amongst the staff of TMZ. The reason why this blog is so full of anti-Oks is because all other left wing media would not publish messages that are remotely supportive of Mel. Hell you can't even question Oks credibility without being tarred and feathered at those blogs aka Huffington Post.

As much as I detest Oks, I think Mel had a lot to do with creating that monster. She was never a problem with Dalton or anyone else. Sure she was still a monetary vulture but those men had her under some sort of control. Mel brought out the worst in her - or rather they brought out the worst in each other - a match truly made in hell.

Her obsession with PR is due in no small part to Mel showing her his PR tricks. Mel is no PR novice and he spends big. Mel knows how to spin and spin...and it rubbed off her her. Mel showed her how to use the courts for financial gain. Hell he even bankrolled her legal assaults on others. What goes around.....He should have said NO you don't resort to such low tactics. He should have shown by example, or at least nipped whatever offensive traits she had in the bud. Or at least saw it as a warning. He should not have filled her head with crap about stardom and celebrity. He should have said NO you don't have what it takes instead of bankrolling her non existent career to the tune of 5 million and giving her ideas about how she could be a "star". No, Mel should not have taken her on premiers and red carpet events and showing her off. It only fed her appetite for fame and fortune. It made her think she was a lot more than what she really was.

Mel fans make out that she pulled his chain all along. Sorry, but it only makes her out to be more capable than she truly is. Mel did all those things,consistently, intently, over time - with deliberation. Which is all the more worse for him as he claims he wasn't drinking then. It truly shows what a stupid man he really is - a 50 odd year old in a cut-throat industry still behaving like a child. And he thinks it is OK because his "fans" think so.
He should thank his lawyers for making her sign that co-habitation agreement. I truly feel he would have let her off if his lawyers did not insist. Then he would have had to part with half of what he had left as she would have been able to claim "domestic partner" and he would not have had a leg to stand on.

The only person I truly have respect and admiration for is Robyn. She has behaved impeccably, and more importantly, remained dignified with her silence. THis would have been hard, in the face of all those insults and abuse she has copped from Oky's camp. The only thing Mel has gotten right was when he called Robyn a Saint. That she truly is.

It's unlikely the boy was needed to testify. They had a lot of evidence. The mum, the victim, the facialist and the dentist were the only ones that made formal declarations. That was done back in June '10. The kid was interviewed by CPS and possibly the lawyers and and cops, I don't recall. Then there was court authenticated photographic and recorded evidence (the latter permissible in cases of threats.) If he decided to play dirty and drag it out even further, they also might have interviewed one of MG's older sons (not a minor) who witnessed an earlier incident where even HE had trepidation about intervening. In the end he'd never have won in court.

You can't listen to everything posted in tabs. When the well is dry (it often is) they more often as not skate by on "a source said"-- a time honored loophole. Radar was trying to milk a lucrative story as it flew off into the sunset. Which may well be what TMZ is doing here.

Anyway when it leaked from all corners of press-dom he'd lose both cases (which no doubt his council told him from the first– pretty much everyone knew) he had to face reality. That's when he took a plea. Which he should have done to begin with and was no doubt advised to.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Parker? Are you in denail or what?

No evidence: all rejected as tampered with by the courts.

Sworn statements? Try Lucia's REGULAR doctor that saw both HER AN DOX the very next day--not a mark on either of them.

IF Ox had been beaten the way she descirbed, she would NOT have been having a facial within the week. Hello! Too painful for that! Duh!

As for Ox's 'witnesses'--all proven to NOT be present or not have seen her or to have changed their stories so many times they discredited themselves.

Take your own advice: you can't listen to everything posted in tabs. And try this: READ MORE, READ EVERYTHING, READ YEARS worth of info compare and THINK not just the present crap printed up.

@Parker - that's quite a convoluted version of "facts" as I recall them. LOL. If they had all that evidence against Gibson, there's no way in hell this thing would still be going on. OG has proven herself to be untruthful and not credible. Shades of Heather Mills.

First of all there is nothing whatever to suggest the audios and photographic evidence the court had was faked. Just some the usual suspects junk journos there to throw a wrench in the works discussing copies which may have been handled by anyone. Now had court experts deemed them fraudulent that would be something else but you would have heard about it if they did. You didn't bc they weren't. Even Mel's camp didn't deny the evidence was tampered with. Had they believed it was, you can bet they'd have gotten on the horn straight away.

There is nothing to suggest the witnesses were unreliable, unless you consider "a source close to says..." something to hang your hopes on. Even the "legit" press can get facts wrong but with tabloids it's a crap shoot, more often than not resulting in a crap story.

Not every "i" can be dotted or "t" crossed in most cases. But the evidence that we know about was compelling in this one. Tabs often make hopeful readers look at tiny details, sometimes invented, that aren't important while ignoring the big picture as well as details that are. It worked.

No evidence to show the tapes were, none...just a HANDFUL of independent audio experts that examined them in different situations and paid for by different people...not to mention REJECTED byt the courts because they did not pass THIER insepction....yeah, yeah, no evidence whatsoever...mmhmm...

Didn't bother to read the rest of your posted crap. Good luck to you in life with your head in the sand like that with NO logic or reading abilities whatsoever.
