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.

A couple of things spelled out more clearly. It looks like Gibson could disburse gifts (at his sole discretion) to the Icon Trust (or anyone/anything else) and leave very little in his estate. It's up to him. Lucia's inheritance will come from the estate; split with her othe siblings.


Also, the courts dictated that neither Grigorieva or Gibson were to contribute towards any articles. I wonder if that includes the Russian ones that have since come out: 3 interviews so far with the Russian press (through Ludmilla). I hope they get shut down.


...............Under the agreement, Lucia, who will be represented by a minor’s attorney, will share equally with Mr. Gibson’s other children in his estate, but she must waive any interest in a family trust that he previously established with his former wife, Robyn. In effect, Mr. Gibson could thus disburse his fortune through the trust without leaving substantial assets in an estate that would be shared with Lucia.


............Ms. Grigorieva is also scheduled to receive three separate payments totaling $750,000. But she could lose some of that, or Mr. Gibson could face further penalties, if either violates an agreement not to discuss their relationship in public. The two are also specifically barred from writing or contributing to books or articles about each other, the judge said.

She is what most folks on here said she was . . a "gold digger". Now she is a gold digger who lost. I do not think, however, she should have gotten even $750,000. Pathetic, to even give the wicked woman that much. My how she has complained about all her pathetic losses, which were obviously lies.

I'd like to know why Mr. Gibson had to give this miserable excuse for a human one dime? She has worked hard to diminish his ability to earn an income and still sucks at his money. I hope Americans continue to reject this woman until she heads on back to Russia. She should embarrassed to even show her face in this country.

Last thought on this miserable woman; she just wouldn't go away without SOME money. Last I heard she was wanting $500,000 for her son who is "damaged" because of what he saw. Oh, yea, right, she isn't a gold digger. She has been milking stories since she popped out that baby JUST to get money and if it had of been me, I would have screamed at this woman in no less the words that Mr. Gibson used. She is wicked beyond wicked. I hate to think of a baby girl being even raised by this poor excuse for the female race. Still say, custody should go to the Gibson family and someday, I hope it does.

Who'sThat    

it's awesome how this greedy bich lost that 15 mil for the initial offer...many of us predicted last year that this would happen,,,the final outcome would be much less than the 15 mil, esp since she has ruined his reputation!
of course, i still support Mel but b/c of this witch, many people are mistakenly against Mel, thus, she has in essence caused him to lose roles and lost revenues...which i would think the judge thought of as well.

however, besides 750k, i think she will be receiving more in ways of monthly child support, since Mel has been ordered to keep the house for Lucia until 18 when it can be sold...thus, everything the household needs, Mel will be providing for....
she had gotten 40k/mo, so she prob will continue to receive this to maintain the home and raise Lucia.

i wish her all the ill will possible!
i want this greedy wench to lose everything, let Mel raise Lucia and leave the states...btw, how is she still here in the states?
the prob is that her side, ludmilla and the lot, can still talk since it isn't coming from OG directly...
but the more they drag this out, the more revenue mel may lose thus, less for Lucia and og in the end.

i'm sure OG prob has her eyes on another sugar daddy...prob got her fangs hooked into the next victim...
we all know men think with their smaller brain and sometimes they like a good challenge.

Haha...her plan backfired. I think she got a fair amount. His obligation is to the child, the house in her name is fantastic.I don't think he should have to give the mom millions of dollars for being in a relationship. His rants were horrible but I've always believed he realized back then he got played and was feeling realy stupid which was the main reason for the horrible phone calls.He played right into her hands and she thought she'd be set for life.

She's lucky to get she got in this settlement. She wasn't his wife. Again girls, this is why you wait for babies until marriage. Marriage was set up for the protection of children and the mothers (or the nuturer- whom ever is the one to take care of the child the most- subsequently sacrificing the potential of producing the most income). If you can't commit to marriage or not wanted to be in a marriage, you aren't ready for children; the biggest committment of all.

More Lies From Oksana Grigorieva – Pretends New Settlement Better Than $15 Million
BY Dr. Jody Overland on September 6, 2011 | 0 Comments and 2 Reactions | Related : Mel Gibson, Movie Celebrity, Oksana Grigorieva


It takes Oksana Grigorieva to find an accountant that tells her that the $750,000 settlement she was forced to accept from Mel Gibson last week beats the $15 million she could have had originally. Oksana is telling friends that she accepted last week’s deal because it’s really worth at least $3 million over time.


The scheming Oksana supposedly had a forensic accountant analyze the recent deal compared with the $15 million settlement from 2010 that she ultimately refused.


“The previous offer was structured in a way that made its value less than $1 million,” Oksana’s lawyer Daniel Horowitz says.


“Moreover, it required Oksana to surrender to Gibson all evidence in the criminal case against her, which could have made her subject to criminal charges ranging from bribery to destruction of evidence.”


Grigorieva’s lawyers value the present settlement, which includes 16 years living rent free in a $1.8 million home, the $750,000 in periodic payments, the payments of attorney fees and rights to her album and videos “at over $3 million,” Horowitz said.


“Another main difference is that Oksana was able to pursue the criminal case against Gibson which would have vanished if she pursued the first deal,” added Horowitz. That certainly worked out to be a big nothing for Oksana as Mel was allowed to plead no contest to a charge of battery against Grigorieva and was placed on three years of probation, ordered to do 16 hours of community service and undergo domestic violence counseling program. In other words Mel received a slap on the wrist.


Oksana set Mel up and lied all over the place about what really happened between them. She went through bunches of lawyers in her attempts to ruin Mel and make herself rich. In the end Mel Gibson remains a brilliant actor, director and producer and Oksana remains an obnoxious gold digger.

Oksana Grigorieva has accepted a truce settlement from ex-boyfriend Mel Gibson because it was worth "over $3 million".

Oksana Grigorieva accepted Mel Gibson's latest truce settlement because it was worth "over $3 million".

The Russian-born singer's lawyer Daniel Horowitz insists last week's settlement - which is thought to include 16 years living rent free in a $1.8 million home, the $750,000 in periodic payments, the payments of attorney fees and rights to her album and videos – is much more appealing for the 41-year-old pianist compared to previous potential deals due to its valuation.

He said: "The previous offer was structured in a way that made its value less than $1 million.

"Moreover, it required Oksana to surrender to Gibson all evidence in the criminal case against her, which could have made her subject to criminal charges ranging from bribery to destruction of evidence."

Daniel explained another benefit in the latest offer for Oksana – who split from Mel in June 2010 - is she could still continue a criminal case against the actor, who pleaded no contest to a battery charge in March, and was later ordered to do 16 hours community service and take part in a domestic violence counselling programme.

The lawyer added to RadarOnline.com: "Another main difference is that Oksana was able to pursue the criminal case against Gibson which would have vanished if she pursued the first deal."

Last month, Mel was ordered to pay Oksana $750,000 as part of their custody arrangement regarding the care of their 22-month-old daughter Lucia.

The sum will be made in three payments to the musician and she will receive the same maintenance payments he pays ex-wife Robyn Moore for the care of their children.
