Mel Gibson Settlement

HUGE Loss for Oksana

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

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.

@ Ira Black --

That interview has to be one of the funniest on TMZ. The portions that was done on 'live' were only part of it.

As always, everyone is waving around the cd to try and drum up interest in banal and derivative pop songs. As most of us with any kind of musical education and/or extensive garage band experience know, there is not any depth there. There is some facility with Romantic piano classics, but not enough for anything more than a lounge act. Maybe if the skanky old lady had a sense of humor or intelligence, she could have done a lounge act or made an excellent living at studio rippling piano chords.

Nothing there.

Tee hee

Where is the TMZ Live coverage of what went on in the courtroom. I found the courtroom video, but not the TMZ Live! where they discuss what went on in the courtroom. Yesterday's live show is MIA. Did TMZ remove it?

After listening to the that awful initial interview with Horowitz that Harvey harassed us all with, all I can say is:

How do you like your crow, Horowitz? Main course, a cold hors d'oeuvre, maybe a pâté? I hear Mel Gibson is a great chef, maybe he can whip up a special dish just for you.
