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.

No -- you can't give money for time with your child. Courts don't work like that.

This is the custody case - what about her civil case against Mel? This $750K is in addition to the $40,000 a month in child support, free housing and other misc. services Mel pays for each month. Wonder how much Mel owes her +40 attorneys? I'd bet Oxy isn't finished with Mel just yet - chances are she agreed to this custody agreement so her attorneys could concentrate on her Civil Suit

Just a big C***T - all this should be a good vibe for the multitude of other LA C***S looking to suck and f**k their way through the process. Mel paid more for cars than he has to give her, Go F**king Mel ! Put this bitch aside, treat the child with respect, and God help the next poor bastard who falls in love with a great ******* and bad F***king chick. Happy as hell for you Mel

750K is a lot of money, she didn't deserve it. But I am glad that she will concentrate on the 15mil lost for her greed. Girls with big lips go crazy when they lose money . 325K per lip , 2 lips=750K
now deport her and keep the money and help the people in New Jersey with all that flooding instead.

The settlement is intended to end the bickering and accusations that have permeated the case handled in mostly secret proceedings for more than a year, Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman said.

Gibson's payments to Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva are dependent on a lasting truce.

As part of the agreement, their daughter will receive support equal to what the actor-director provides his other seven children. The former couple will split custody of the girl, who turns 2 in late October.

In addition, Gibson will keep paying for a multimillion house he purchased for Grigorieva and their daughter. The house will be sold when the girl turns 18 and she will receive the proceeds.

As a result of the settlement, Grigorieva cannot pursue a civil case against the Oscar winner, and both sides were ordered not to speak or write about their relationship.

Lichtman specifically said neither side could release any audio recordings, an apparent reference to a series of racist and sexist rants by Gibson that were leaked to the celebrity website

Grigorieva's payments were divided into thirds, with the final payment occurring in 2016 if the agreement is not breached.

Gibson spoke a handful of times during the hearing, mainly to acknowledge he understood terms of the settlement.

"I'd like to say thanks your honor for bringing this matter to a reasonable conclusion," the "Braveheart" star said.

Grigorieva also thanked the judge and said she hoped the resolution meant Gibson's career could resume.

She's gonna go flat broke when this baby turns 18. Her beautiful house will be gone, she will no longer receive child support and you know she will have blown the $750K. Now watch her try and sue the lawyers who told her she could get more that 15 mil!!!!

No judge in his/her right mind will believe the lies perpetuated by this golddigging beyotch against Mel being an unfit, dangerous dad. Mel raised well 7 kids from his frist marriage of long years (until this golddigger stole Mel from his wife) and Robin only had good words to describe Mel as a dad to their kids, so obviously the case of this golddiger had no merits at all.

And the 750K that this golddigger will get is just a settlement to end their court battle and NOT the montly child support that Lucia will get from her dad. Who knows how much money Mel agreed to give his daughter. So for sure just for the monthly child support that this beyotch will get for Lucia would be enough for this golddigger to live a comfortable life.

True JUSTICE served very well indeed. Congratulations to Mel for winning this court battle.
