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.

Ummmm -- OG dropped domestic violence charges against Mel. Remember? That was when the judge and Kolodny were visibly shocked by her action. And then, we have the issue of Mel's West Plea meaning that Mel gets to maintain his innocence in the alleged domestic violence. She keeps trying, doesn't she? And so far, nothing is working.

Just wanted to say that I appreciate all of the kind thoughts that came my way after the May 22, 2011 tornado. My son and I are safe. We were displaced from our home, and just returned a couple of weeks ago after repairs were made. There are still some repairs to be made, but at least we have our home. I hope that everyone is well and having a good summer. Thank you again for thinking of us and remembering us. I have to go now, but will hopefully check back from time to time. Hugs!

The paps are practically living on Ox's door step. Anyone coming or going is going to have pictures taken and splashed all over the gossip sites. Especially a "celebrity" like Dalton. TMZ would be the first to have anything about MEL,OX, DALTON or anyone associated with this high drama. It brings in bucos of hits and money. So, don't you think we would hear if Dalton came around to pick up his kid? There would certainly be pictures. Also the ones that hate Mel would make sure to have pictures of what a great father Dalton is compared to Mel put on here. It's just elementary my dear.

I can't image what Mel's kids have to live threw, can you hear the chatter behind there backs. For your kids, why don't you get this done with. pay the gold digger off so she goes away and your kids won't have to live your head lines-- gay hater, drunk driving, jew hater. Dad's award for sure.

I like Mel regardless of whats he's done in his past. We all have one but I knew this bitch wasn't good for him when I first saw them together. His old ass had several children to his wife of many many years then to start over almost immediately when she put her claws in him.

Guess the grass isn't always so green after its walked on. Often its weeds beneath it. She needs to leave it alone. How will the money take the trama away she's saying her son suffered? Hope the judge doesn't go for her shena****ns or this hoe will take him to civil court

This money thing has and become a huge down slide in relationships.

Excuse me, but did not SHE bring Mel into her son's life? Everyone knew he was a volatile alcoholic. SHE is the one who caused her son's trauma by her selfish choices. What will the next sugar daddy do to her children?

Even if Mel decided to give her the $500,000 she would find another way to get more money...with as many lawyers she has she has to have a way to pay for them-besides f*cking each one of them. Which who is to say that she hasn't done it already!?! This will never end for Mel.

If she gets any money from Mel for her son, they need to put it in a trust, with a guardian so this greedy thing will not get one dime.

She must have discovered the media has lost intrest in her and moved on, so time to stir up this old story again.

Yikes ... cant she just go away already. She needs to get a job ... or something. quit trying to squeeze money out of these men. how much is she getting from Dalton? does he have to pay her support too?

Gosh, it seems this saga will never end. Mel, babe, you really stepped in it with this woman. You know, it's hard to say what his relationship with his wife was like after being married so many years. People can grow apart after many years, and I can only assume that Mel, along with many other mega celebs, probably have to deal with a tremendous amount of gold-diggers and hangers-on.
I think it would be difficult to determine who loves you for you and who is looking for something to gain by association. I think that that, combined with the ego they must develope over many years of celebrity, would make it difficult to judge. Mel was obviously mistaken, and he will pay for it for the rest of his life.

I didn´t know that replies are not shown. Sorry
To firefly: Dalton comes around pick up Sasha regular. It is not interesting for paps.But you can see two videos on youtube where he picked up his son,but in basically TD is not paps magnet at all. He is not on radar and never do photos ops like Oksana and is extremely private,but if you ´d try you can find some photos with his son.
Some last photos from this year:
Dalton has joint physical justody with Oksana over son 50-50 and Sasha also lives with him in his house in Hollywood hills.Sasha spends more time with his father than Lucia with Mel nowadays.

She will milk him till he is dry. Obviously, she wants to live off his money, not her own because she will have to WORK for it. Get a life bitch.
