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.

As much as I "DISLIKE" Ole Greedy, Mel Gibson's sudden trip to Arizona during Lucia's visitation period has given Ole Greedy some "LEVERAGE" that could have been avoided. If he would have spent the "majority" of his trip at his father's bedside and avoided partying in a "questionable" bar and having a "fender bender", Ole Greedy wouldn't have very much to say. As Lucia's mother, she had every right to be somewhat concerned about the actual whereabouts of her child after reading about Mel Gibson's sudden trip on the Internet. In all fairness, he should have informed her about his "family" related emergency and sent Lucia home to her mother. As much as he obviously despises that "PATHETICALLY" greedy creature, with a 50/50 custody agreement in place, he doesn't have the luxury to ignore her "reasonably" maternal concerns. Although Lucia was left in the very competent care of her nanny, her mother should have been informed about the situation. Quite frankly, if these two avoid having a custody trial at all, it will be a miracle. Realistically, he may have to pay her the remaining $500,000 upfront to get rid of her and not have her challenge the 50/50 custody arrangement. This is what I suspect she REALLY WANTS, anyway. When you "lay down with DOGS, you'll get with FLEAS"!!! It seems like Mel Gibson will be "scratching like a "M.F." for the next 16 years". It's time for him to "MAN UP" and take "self-control" and "discipline" much more seriously. The consequences are just TOO COSTLY!!!

Sincerity, I agree with you 1000% that Oxy should have been informed. I just wonder - - what makes you think she wasn't? Her word?

I rarely ask myself, WHY! In the case of Oksanity, not a day goes by that I don't ask myself, WHY couldn't she have been in the salon on Seal Beach last week when tragedy struck? I would have gone to her funeral JUST to make sure it was her.

Too soon Rouge Warrior--

In fairness, you don't have a clue about what you are writing. You were not in any potential conversations and should refrain from comment. You are less inner sanctum... more inner rectum. Stop blowing it out on people.

@What You Really Want To See


I LIVE IN AMERICA -- YOU HAVE "ABSOLUTELY" NO RIGHT TO TELL ME SQUAT -- EVERYONE HAS 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND YOU SHOULD RESPECT THEM, PERIOD!!! FURTHERMORE, AS I UNDERSTAND, THE 50/50 CUSTODY AGREEMENT INVOLVES ONLY OKSANA GRIGORIEVA AND MEL GIBSON WHO ARE LUCIA'S PARENTS!!! AS MUCH AS OLE GREEDY IS DISLIKED, SHE STILL HAS THE RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE WELFARE OF THEIR CHILD DURING "UNFORESEEN" EMERGENCIES. ALTHOUGH LUCIA HAS A "BIOLOGICAL" RELATIONSHIP TO MEL GIBSON'S OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS -- THEY AREN'T HER "LEGAL" GUARDIANS -- OKSANA GRIGORIEVA IS ONE OF HER "LEGAL GUARDIANS" WHO IS RECOGNIZED BY THE COURT!!! ANY "REASONABLE" PARENT WOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR CHILD, PERIOD!!! DISLIKING "OLE GREEDY" DOESN'T DIMINISH HER PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES!!! THE WOMAN CLAIMS SHE WASN'T INFORMED "BEFOREHAND" AND INFORMING HER "AFTER THE FACT" DOESN'T LESSEN THE OVERSIGHT!!! JUST BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T ALWAYS PLAY "FAIR" DOESN'T LESSEN HER RIGHT TO "FAIR" TREATMENT ACCORDING TO THE LAW!!! AS FAR AS YOUR "SO CALLED" INNER SANCTUM ARGUMENT IS CONCERNED, IF YOU'RE "NOT RECOGNIZED" BY THE COURT AS A "DESIGNATED" PARTY WITHIN THE CUSTODY AGREEMENT -- YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL "ME OR ANY OTHER POSTERS" ON THIS THREAD "ANYTHING"!!! NOW GO CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR "MUSTY AZZ" ROCK AND "WHINE ME A RIVER"!!! LOL!!!

Wow, someone has their panties in a bunch! First Amendment? It's always so one sided when the Oksaloons rage about it.

How do you know he didn't? RabiesOnline has so much BS in their reporting, you can't believe a word they say. Funny how that wasn't mentioned in the TMZ article. Mel doesn't owe Ox any information about where he is. He also has Lucia COMPLETELY during his time; he doesn't have to report to her, I'm sure, and I doubt she would give him the same courtesy even if he did. In any case, until TMZ reports it, I call Ox and ROL bullogna.
And why do you put "family" in quotes? His father is part of his family and he is Lucia's grandfather. Lucia's HOME is as much Mel's house as it is Ox's - that's what 50% means. Mel has other children, one grown with children of her own, who are also Lucia's family. Lucia's family includes Mel's other children and extended family. There is nothing wrong with Lucia staying with sisters, aunties, grandmas and cousins while Dad is away at an emergency or at work. Do you really expect him to be a stay-at-home dad? Do you really think Baby-Shaker Ox never uses a nanny or babysitter? Don't fool yourself.
As for the fleas, I agree with you there. That flea bag tramp will never leave him alone. She is obsessed.

@Frieda


Unless you're a member of either Mel Gibson's or Ole Greedy's legal team or a presiding judge such as the Honorable Scott Gordon, you really don't know what the "exact" terms of their custody arrangement are. There may be instances in which Ole Greedy has to be informed about "unforeseen" changes or emergencies surrounding Lucia's visitation. Assuming that Mel Gibson doesn't have to confer with the mother of his child in "EMERGENCY" situations doesn't sound "kosher" to me!!! Furthermore, I'm quite sure there isn't much "LOVE" lost between Ole Greedy and Mel Gibson's family members. It seems to me that "designated" intermediaries would have to be involved at some point.
