Oksana Grigorieva to Mel Gibson:

I'm Calling the Shots

On Lucia's Schooling

8/16/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson may be rich and famous, but he's dealing with the same issues millions of fathers struggle with after separating from their partners -- how can he keep a relationship with his child, when his baby mama tries to keep him away?

Mel and Oksana Grigorieva are deep in the throes of mediation, and one of the big issues is where baby Lucia goes to school.  Oksana wants to put Lucia in a private school by her home in the San Fernando Valley.  Mel does not want to drive from Malibu to the Valley -- a long drive when there's no traffic -- when he picks Lucia up and drops her off.  He wants a school half way between their homes.

Sources tell TMZ ... Mel and Oksana are miles apart in settling the custody case.  Mel wants 50/50 custody, and he believes that would solve most of their issues, but Oksana is vehemently opposed to an equal split.

And, sources say, even Oksana's lawyers want her to settle with Mel, in no small part because they want to get paid, but she's refusing to budge.  We're told Oksana is still so bitter, she'd rather drag Mel through the mud than settle and just walk away.

The fact that she's capable of making ANY decisions still amazes me

Let's see...SHE does NOT work and has all day to drive...Mel DOES work and therefore does not have all that time to drive. BOTH have nannies to drive for them if that is the case.

YET, Mel is being reasonable and asking for a school in the middle so they have equal driving time.

I think that says it all right there.

It's obvious that mediation is not going to work. The judge needs to put his foot down or get off the bench. Lucia will be 18 before any of this gets resolved.

Although if I was him, i wouldn't trust ox or anyone she would place the child in the care of... he's better off driving his lazy ass from malibu to san fernando to pick her up! we all know that woman is too stupid to keep her lies straight, i wouldn't trust that she's smart enough to find a reputable person to cart her child around, let alone actually safely drive a vehicle herself!

DerangedFaery:.Im beting her family is pretty embarrassed of her as well.

Sorry DerangedFaery you just lost the bet, hope you didn't wager much. It was her parents that taught her everything she knows. The only reason that they would be embarrassed is because she let them down and didn't secure the monetary. LOL

Oksana...Why don't you home school Lucia. Then you can really stay home and sit on your skinny ass all day long. Oh, you're doing that now. Some things never change...

ROSEEEEEEEEEEE!! Don't give her any ideas. that poor child will be schooling stupid and gold digging wise.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

The gold digging, ugly Bitch is insane. Put her away NOW. She shouldn't be allowed to be around any children Mel has already given her a ton of money, a house, a car, a housekeeper, a nanny, etc. The Fruitcake won't be happy until she gets ALL of Mel's money.

Not if she can help it, she won't work!

I also have a hard time swallowing her lawyers told her not to work. I think she told them she wasn't going to work! I can't see ANY lawyer telling their client to not work...unless they had some suit about damages going on and they were trying to claim their client could NOT work--even then I don't think any GOOD lawyer would tell their client to not work...but then Ox has SLIMY lawyers, not good ones.

For one: what can she do? Nada! Porn star maybe...

I wouldn't put it pass Ox to go after Popeye the sailor man. She probably thinks he's referring to her when he says, "Well blow me down."
