Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva

Settlement Hits a Roadblock

10/17/2011 9:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017_mel_oksana_EX_01
Oksana Grigorieva just made a beeline for family court after her settlement with Mel Gibson hit a snag ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Oksana and Mel struck a deal in which Oksana would walk away with $750,000, the house she's living in, and some other stuff. In return, she'll leave Mel alone.  They also agreed to 50/50 custody of Lucia.

The settlement agreement is scheduled to go before the family court judge tomorrow for final approval, but we're told the lawyers are still fighting over how it's worded and they've reached a stalemate.

Our sources say Mel's lawyers asked the judge for more time so they can hash it out, but Oksana showed up to court this morning to fight the request ... because she wants the deal done STAT.

Judge Scott Gordon gave Mel and Oksana an extension to sort out their differences -- but only until November 1st ... less time than Mel's people were hoping for.

And another thing - - - this whole article was supposed to be about Oxy going to court yesterday to prevent any change in the wording of their agreement, and to get signatures asap. Speculation has been about custody, Icon Trust, Alexander's $100K (guilty). Time was extended to November 1, so I doubt there was a hearing today.


We can speculate forever, but it might be more productive to wait until November 1, just two weeks from now, to see how everything shakes out.


Have a nice evening everyone, and I mean EVERYONE.

Exactly! People that are not divorced without child custody agreements don't understand. They guy was visiting his sick dad. The man is ancient. A quick trip/flight. Gibson has 50% custody and doesn't have an accounting of Ox's time with their child. Somehow this is being painted as being an absentee father by Putz and Ox. It's ridiculous.
----------
Tell, it's quite possible that OG is bringing up the Absentee Father thing for other reasons besides the Phoenix trip. Wasn't he just in Costa Rica not too long ago? How long was he he there? A week? Two? who knows! My guess is that her attorney's would have said you cant claim absentee father over 1 issue (though she'd try) - so perhaps there are more times where he hasnt taken his 50%.....just food for thought.

This is exactly why fathers should not try to move heaven and earth for custody. Legal custody, yes. Physical custody, no. The father is usually the breadwinner and has to work to provide for himself and his child - maybe even spousal support.

It gets down to the ridiculous when the father insists on having the child every other weekend, every 2nd and 4th Thursday between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. in months ending with "r"; or twice on Sunday.

How Mel earns his money is always going to be a problem. Location scoutings, meetings, not to mention anything that might be an emergency, like an ill, elderly father in another state. So, unless he wants to retire from the business and live off his assets, there are always going to be these conflicts. He cannot be "hands on" 3 or 4 days every week and still pursue his craft. JMO

Realist,

Exactly. He fought long and hard to get 50/50 and now he has to deal with it and all that goes with it. What's the old expression, "be careful of what you wish for because you just may get it" or something like that.

So he's kinda stuck between a rock and hard place. Retire to fulfill his 50% (or at least cut WAAAAAY back) OR keep doing what he's doing and live with what happens.

Either way it's a tough spot

And if he's out drinking til 130am in Phoenix where he can be (and was) spotted - how much drinking is going on a home when Lucia's there?

Thought I had earlier, if he was out til 130am drinking (or later?) what time was his 'fender bender"? Did enough time lapse for the alcohol to be out of his system before he drove? A 56yo w/ a history of drinking problems DOES NOT have the liver of a 21yo....

sure makes ya wonder.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

1)neither of you know if he was drinking or what he was drinking
2)just cuz the dude looked like him from afar in a bad pic doesn't mean it was him
3)no one knows how many days he was gone, NOR is it our business
4)I HOPE one of these days really soon both of you, ALL of you mindles*****ers get to be treated with JUST the same consideration-- as in NONE and it affects your WHOLE LIFE just the same as it has poor Mel.

TMZG: LOL! As funny as it is that this happened so soon after the ink to the custody agreement dried, it's also pretty sad that Giblitz seems more concerned about concealing the verbiage regarding the payout to Alexander in the custody docs than he is about spending time with his baby.

Papa Gibby is now officially on the payroll and will be used whenever Gibz can't cope with frying an egg for the baby he fought so hard to win 50/50 custody of. Are there retirement homes in Costa Rica for Papa Gibby? I hear you can drive like a maniac down there no problem.

On many occasions, after reading the posts on this site, I find myself wondering; why all the venom? Is in inherent in the anonymous nature of posting on a gossip site? Or any site? Or have casual insults and cheap attempts at bullying humor become an accepted part of our culture? Are we really just a sitcom nation? And a bad one at that? Or worse; perpetual adolescents?


It's late. Too late, I'm afraid. Good sense and discretion have disappeared with the sun. Good night all. I hope everyone, and I mean that, who reads this post has a lovely week.

wow
the house fraus sure get pissy when beater-bois dedication to lil lucia is called into question.

This, from the same group that bitch about how Oxymoron holds/ dresses/ throws parties for the child.

wadda bunch of hypocrites. think of the uproar if it was mommy dearest that had the fender bender... they'd be in here screaming that Oxy was trying to kill the child for an inheritance.

You've gotta laugh at 2 idiots, Cujo, Sincerity and TMZ Gossip. They are an ugly little group who spend there lives defending Oksa and defaming Gibson. They defy logic, decency and truth everytime they open their mouths. They make up, hysterical nonsense, just like Oksa does, as they read all sorts of delusional conclusions into a small story that has no real substance or detail. It's very entertaining watching them make up and attribute imaginary activities to Gibson. Their hype shows us what they would be up to if they were in AZ! Ha ha ha. I just love the Oksa defense team because they make the rest of us look good. They are as predictable as Oksa is, and they just keep drawing attention to her skankiness.

But I prefer to write something that has been substantiated, like this :

Oksana Email to Mel:

It is being reported by TMZ that the LA County Sheriffs Office is in possession of an email that lends credibility to Mel Gibsons claim of extortion. The email is from Oksana to Mel and acknowledges that she claims to have suffered physical abuse at the hands of her first famous lover: Timothy Dalton

Or something that hasnt been made up from that silly AZ. story, like this:


http://m.celebdirtylaundry.com/2011/more-lies-from-oksana-grigorieva-pretends-new-settlement-better-than-15-million/.

Both of these items are more interesting. and truthful.

@Alicia

Your "WHINNY" "NEUROTIC AZZ" post only confirms there is "SUBSTANCE" to some of the items that are discussed that don't conform to the "DELUSIONAL" groupie mentality of the "LUNATIC FRINGE"!!! As far as the LASD's extortion investigation is concerned, IT'S A CLOSED MATTER!!! The district attorney refused to prosecute the case due to the lack of a "SMOKING GUN"!!! IT IS WHAT IT IS!!! Any normal "RATIONAL" adult would simply "ACCEPT THESE FACTS" and STOP BEATING A DEAD HORSE!!! Perhaps, if you actually had the ABILITY TO "READ & COMPREHEND", you wouldn't be so damn offended by conversations that don't support your woefully "ONE SIDED" perceptions. Slamming people you don't like WON'T CHANGE REALITY!!!

When visiting hours are up what is a guy to do? Just go back to your hotel room and watch TV? Mel probably doesn't do that in his day to day life. He was probably just seeking out people to be around after being in a quiet sterile hospital room that gets a little claustrophobic after awhile. I know how lonely it gets being away from home sitting in a hospital room with no one to talk to. After seeing dad all day by the time I left the hospital I wanted to be around people so I would go to the Historical Strand in Galveston and watch a artist spray paint beautiful scenes on canvas. Since I don't drink I would not go into the bars where they were singing karaoke even though I wanted to just to sing. So maybe that was what Mel was doing. He just didn't want to be alone with his thoughts, which might have been what may be coming next concerning his father.

ole ira -- delusional as ever.
..
george -- doesn't hold stacy's hand, signs autograph
.
beater-boi -- fender bender & out drinking @ 1:30 am during his court agreed visitation with child
.
who is seeking the negative publicity?

Who is seeking to show their azz on a public website?
Seeking to win the biggest azzhole award is a 3 way tie between YOU, SCOTTY, AND THE IDIOT.

LOL.. you don't have to be out drinking to have a fender bender, you idiot. Oh, now I know why idiot has a 2 in front of his user name, you're the other idiot. I thought he was trying to say he won the biggest idiot award twice.
