Mel Gibson

Rear Ender? He Hardly Knew Her!

10/11/2011 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson caused a minor traffic accident yesterday, when his front bumper met somebody's back bumper in Phoenix, Arizona.

We're told no one was injured -- a cop came to the scene but no one was cited. Both vehicles sustained minor damage. After exchanging insurance information, both parties went their separate ways.

We're told Mel is in town to visit his father, who is hospitalized in Phoenix.

Mel hasn't had the best luck on the road, just last year he crashed his 2008 Maserati in L.A. But cops say he acted like a total gentleman after the wreck.

Oksana Grigorieva Slams Mel Gibson As An ‘Absentee Father’

By Radar Staff

Oksana Grigorieva is going to a Los Angeles court on Tuesday to complain to a judge that Mel Gibson is an absentee father, has exclusively learned.

Gibson, 55, was supposed to have custody of he and 41-year-old Grigorieva’s 23-month-old daughter Lucia, when he was involved in a minor car accident in Phoenix, Ariz., on Monday.

A source close to Grigorieva told “On Monday, Mel was in the midst of a four day custody visit and he chose to go to Arizona. We’re told Lucia was left at Mel’s Malibu mansion in the care of a nanny, at the time he crashed his car.”

Troubling Oksana, "Mel had not informed Oksana that he was traveling nor did he provide regular updates about Lucia’s welfare,” according to the source.

“When Oksana read about the accident on the internet, she became panicked because she thought Lucia was inevitably in the car with Mel at the time.”

The pair is due to appear before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Peter D. Lichtman on October 18 to ratify their 50-50 custody agreement.

In August, the actor-filmmaker also agreed to pay $750,000 over the next five years to Grigorieva, while allowing her and Lucia to continue to live in a house he owns in Los Angeles.

Said the insider: “Oksana's lawyers plan to ask the judge why Mel should be allowed to have custody, for him only to leave town. If he is going to do that, Lucia should be in the custody of Oksana and not a woman who is not her mother.”

The Braveheart star's vehicle bumped the rear end of another driver's car and while no one was injured, both vehicles suffered a little damage.

Mel Gibson gets settlement extension in daughter’s custody dispute
October 18, 2011 – 6:20 pm By News Desk |
Washington, Oct 18 (ANI):
Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who split in June 2010, have been given an extension until November 1st to conclude the custody arrangement of their 23-month-old daughter Lucia.

According to, there is still a disagreement on how to go about the final settlement, which states that the couple will share equal custody of their daughter, with the Hollywood actor paying the Russian-born singer 750,000 dollars.

Judge Peter Lichtman had stated in August that Oksana and Lucia will stay in the home they are currently living in, which was purchased by Mel.

Gibson, however, is permitted to visit his daughter at any time as long as a designated person accompanies him.

But when Lucia turns 18 the house will be sold with all the proceeds going to her.

The judge has also ruled that the broken couple is not permitted to speak or write about their turbulent relationship. (ANI)-
