Mel Gibson
has agreed to fork over $750,000 to his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva as part of their custody settlement ... TMZ has  learned.

According to the terms of the agreement, revealed today in court, Mel will give Oksana the money in 3 installments of $250,000 -- the first payment will be made when the deal is signed today.

The next payment will be made on Sept. 15, 2013 -- and the final payment will be made on Jan. 1, 2016.

Today in court, the judge in the custody case said the couple will have joint legal and physical custody of their daughter Lucia.

The judge also said the house that Oksana and Lucia are living in will be sold when Lucia turns 18 and the money will be placed in a trust for Lucia.

If any repairs need to be made on Oksana's home, Mel is required to pay for the work -- up to $5,000.

The judge asked both Mel and Oksana if they understood and agreed to the terms of the settlement -- and they both replied, "Yes."

During the hearing, Mel addressed the judge and said, "Thanks for a reasonable conclusion."

Oksana also spoke ... saying, "Thanks to the judge for the tremendous help to resolve this matter."

So the skanky piano player (without any discernible musical talent) got $250,000 per year for her so-called 'services.'


Hahahahahahaha.

Who is paying for her 40-50 lawyers?
I'm not a big fan of Mel but, In my mind it would be unfair that he gets stuck with her lawyers' fee which is way more than the settlement.

ROFLMAO!!! Lololololol!! Wow, I'm staggered a whole $750k lol!! What was it the alleged amount she and KH were talking about was $200 mil - oh stop, I haven't had this good a laugh in ages lol!!
PLUS Mel gets the 50/50 custody he wanted, she can't write a book or condone a book or even get a ghost writer to write a book on the whole Mel/OG incident - neither can Mel, but then he's such a private person he wouldn't have written one anyway lol!! I wonder though, does that put the kybosh on KH's alleged book too lol?!
In the end the one who lost the most was OG herself, she lied so blatantly, so many different versions of the same story, she lost all credibility even with her own supporters lol! She has dragged Mel, his family, Lucia, Sasha/Alexander and even TD through the mud for over a year now with her allegations and spiel.She got a settlement which was a major achievement after she broke the terms of the original agreement and Mel was certainly not under any obligation to do more than support Lucia legally! The pitifully small amount in comparison to other settlements reached by celebs shows just how far down the ladder she's fallen, even the house in Sherman Oaks can't be sold by OG without Mel consent and the value of the house going towards another home for Lucia and any profit HAS to be held for Lucia when she is 18. So basically OG is living in Lucia's house with her lololololol! Lucia can kick her out at 18 if she wants to lolol!
The next man in her life certainly can't claim to have known nothing about her true character lol, let's just hope his kids get in there first and make sure she doesn't get all his money after he dies on the honeymoon night from a heart attack at the age of 80+ lol!!
To get everything he wanted and a nominal settlement can mean only one thing Mel was prepared to get her into court civilly at least on the charges of extortion etc and since the LASD wanted her charged anyway they could have appeared as witnesses for his side, with all of their evidence made available. Even if that isn't the case his lawyers must have had plenty of ammo against her - if not OG and her team would have been on every talk show talking up their case hm?!
She doesn't even get all the money at once lol, oh wow, way to go Mel lol!! $750k is less than he pays in taxes lolololololol!!
Next film Mel, can't wait lol!
