Mel Gibson Settlement

HUGE Loss for Oksana

8/31/2011 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0831_mel_oksana_EX
The settlement struck between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva is nothing less than a financial fiasco for a woman who wanted untold millions of dollars from her famous ex. 

TMZ obtained a copy of the original 2010 settlement worth $15 million that Oksana disavowed. At the time, Oksana said she would not go through with the settlement because she felt Mel was a danger to their daughter Lucia and believed Mel should not have unsupervised contact with the child.

In reality, sources connected to the case tell TMZ, the real reason Oksana walked away from the settlement is because she was advised she could get a lot more than $15 million because of the alleged physical abuse she claims she suffered at the hands of Mel.

Now, in a shocking twist of fate, rather than getting $15 million, Oksana is only getting $750k. On top of that, she was concerned about Mel having unsupervised visitation ... Mel is actually getting MORE unsupervised visitation based on the agreement that was just struck.

The fact is, under the 2010 agreement, Mel would NOT have gotten 50/50 custody until Lucia turns 3 years old. Under the current agreement, he gets 50/50 custody immediately.

Short story ... she should have taken door #1.

Yes, she blew it (no pun intended.) BUT, and a big BUT--Her and Mel are getting back together. That's what people don't know.

PRO US    

If you ever find out how much he paid his lawyers for this case and how much her lawyers were paid, you wouldn't be surprised that he won this case. When one side spends 10 times or so more than the other side, the scales of justice are not necessarily balanced. She seems to be a money-grubbing woman trying to live off her ex-boyfriends by having their babies. Mel is well, Mel. He could afford better legal representation than her and he got a better result. Not surprising. That's the way the legal system usually works. If it didn't, then rich people wouldn't routinely pay their lawyers millions of dollars to win their cases in court. Sycophants of Mel won't admit it. They're in a state of denial and ignorance.

Congratulations Mel. It is good to see that your daughter will have more time with you. This shows that the good guy can come out on top.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Yay!

I like Ox losing. :)

However 750K is way more than the skank deserves.

They probably took that original 15 million settlement agreement and paid off all the lawyer bills, and $750 K was what was left for her.

If she would have accepted the earlier deal, she would have made out much better and I wouldn't have had to see her face almost everyday! Thank God, maybe now she'll go away!
