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.

Why doesn't Mel just threaten Ox and her lawyers with everything they have done that was dishonest, underhanded, and vile. Show them that he is not going to roll over to their every wim. Threaten to expose her for everything he has kept quiet about her and I'm sure there is a lot. Sometimes you have to get down and dirty, down to their level for them to understand, for that is all they know. Let her see how it feels to live in fear of being exposed. Tell her to back off, shut her mouth and take the deal that is offered before its to late. Boy I'd love to see that happen but Mel's to much o*****entleman so we probably won't see that happen. Darn!

Oh well... quick summary of today's TMZ post. Gibson is doomed for hooking up with the money hungry, tape recording, Russian psycho. If he farts and it doesn't smell like roses and jasmine, his gassy azz will be hauled into court and it will cost him. The end.

..."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".....

Sincerity
what if all this what you are saying are wrong and incorrect informations used by pro-Oksana media and to try to give Oksana upper hand and change the verdict 50/50?
just speculations...
What if on the way to hospital, car in front of Mel stopped on red light and then backed into Mel's car?
Owner of the car as an apology invited Mel to the bar?
Mel was invited as a "guest" at owner expense so
Mel tipped waiter big $ b/c he was not paying the bill?

also
I do not like suggestion about killing Oksana or about her funeral b/c Ludmilla mentioned that in her interview to Murashkina. Oksana killed in car accident and Mel is to be blamed?

Oksana lost.
Oksana wanted $200 000 000 so
Oksana rejected as crumbs and lousy $15 000 000...
Oksana wanted Malibu house (in KP interview)
Mel gave Lucia lousy Sherman Oak house...

Mel is winner in this mess.
50/50 custody and as some mentioned this on russian web
after 2016 Lucia goes to Mel 100%
Oksana having Lucia only for major holidays
and no child support to Oksana zip nil nada zero $$$$$$

Do they say "yup" in Australia? Or is she from Alabama?

@canook


The "REALITY" is that Ole Greedy as Lucia's mother CAN CHALLENGE "ANYTHING" that doesn't seem to be in her child's best interests WHETHER PEOPLE "LIKE" HER OR NOT!!! If I'm not mistaken, she's already demanding that the court revisit their "50/50" shared custody status. Don't be mistaken, she does have more "LEVERAGE" now and WON'T HESITATE TO USE IT!!!

As I see it Ox has had a lot more insidences of being a bad parent. Starting with running around the back yard shaking an infant Lucia. Doing things that made her son yell at her. Doing God knows what to make her son put his hand through a stained glass window. Running out into the street leaving her son to bleed while once again carrying Lucia. If Ox wants to make Mel out to being an absent dad because he went to see his father in the hospital then he needs to remind the court of all her past failures as a mother. Fair is fair.

Federal law trumps state law. Mel has a 'right' to be a father to Lucia without interference from OG. Having to report to OG about Lucia would be interference. It could be that Lucia cannot be removed from a certain geographical location, so that's why Mel couldn't take her. It doesn't matter if Lucia is with the nanny. She is with the nanny anyway for some of the time. The nanny is like family to her. The thing is, even with the nanny, Lucia is in her dad's world during his time. He may have to be away from her, but she is still part of his world and can be in her dad's home. That does not harm the child. OG needs to get over it and on with it. We don't know what the wording is in their custody agreement, but I don't think that either parent owes the other phone calls or first right of refusals if they are not able to exercise their custodial time. It really is none of OG's business how Mel decides to conduct his custodial time...whether it's an emergency or not.

************************************************************

"The liberty interest at issue in this case -- the interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children -- is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court."

Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (U.S. 2000)

Every father has a constitutional right to be an active and integral part of his children's lives. This right is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and is a "Fundamental Right" that may be interfered with only in limited cir****tances.

And by the way, one of the 'limited cir*****tances' that the government can interfere with child custody is....drum roll...child abuse. We know that OG tried very hard to paint Mel as not only beating her, but beating Lucia 'whilst OG was holding the baby.' Remember her 'basically, he had a gun whilst she was holding the baby, and if it would have gone off 2 centimeters to the left or right they could be dead.' That was her talking from the 'OG you have such beautiful posture' People interview. OG tried very, very hard to make Mel out to be abusive.

BS. Did she personally inform Gibson when she left Lucia at home while going to hospital with her son? Does she inform him of anything that happens in his house with his daughter? Did she let him know before she denied Gibson his right to see Lucia on Fathers Day? Did she inform him about secretly recording him? Did she inform him about hiring 40 odd lawyers that he had to pay for, before she did it? Does she inform him when she arranges for the same old photographic agency to take her pre-arranged random pictures of her and Lucy when she goes out, thereby exposing Lucia to public scrutiny instead of protecting her from being photographed, so that she can get her own UGLY face plastered in ROL.

Is she going to piss and moan when Gibson leaves Lucia to go to work?

Wouldn't it be nice to see her go to work? If she ever gets a job to supplement her extortion money, that would be news worthy!

There are no tabs kept on the activities of this woman. We don't know what she is doing when she has Lucia, but we know what she is capable of! She is a blackmailing publicity whore who will never stop with her scheming, who seizes every opportunity to use this baby to get more attention and demand more money! She deserves the same consideration that she gives, which is none!

This is Oksana's way of remaining a part of Mel Gibson's life. She knows she is nothing without him. She wants to be associated with him, it's the only way she gets any recognition at all. We all know her music sucks so it will never ever take off and she will never snag another rich man now. Ten years from now if they didn't report Oksana Grigorieva in association with Mel Gibson everyone would reply with "Who?". She knows it and it's driving her crazy. She'll keep dragging him into court to try to stay relevant. What a complete failure and loser she is as a human being.

After reading some of the articles here and other places, I find myself wondering sometimes if either one of them has a good grasp on the concept of cause and effect. Seriously.


Okay.....I'm ready. Hit that dislike button all you want. See, I get it. Just not sure they do. ;o)

@Fuddy - You nailed it! Great post. Ox has NO right to demand he report to her on his time, nor does Mel have any right to insist Ox report to him when it's her time. That's a very interesting point about how she wanted to accuse him of abuse. She could have had him reporting his activities to her 24/7 if he wanted to see his baby girl.
And he has every right in the world to go where he wants, night clubs as well. Sincerity, you're a Puritanical little bastard, aren't you?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


@Frieda:


I HAVE ABSOLUTELY "NO" RELATIONSHIP WITH THE "LIKES OF YOU"!!! YOU DON'T KNOW ME AT ALL!!! MEL GIBSON "CHOSE" TO CRITICIZE THOSE WHO DIDN'T FIT INTO HIS RATHER "MYOPIC", "PURITANICAL" DEFINITION OF "MORAL" FITNESS!!! HOWEVER, GOD SITS HIGH & LOOKS LOW AND NOW THIS MAN IS BEING FORCED TO DEAL WITH "ALL" OF HIS PERSONAL DEMONS IN ORDER TO SURVIVE!!! PERHAPS THE TIME HAS COME FOR YOU TO TAKE A "SERIOUS" ASSESSMENT OF YOUR "OWN" SHORTCOMINGS!!! FRANKLY, I CONSIDER "YOU" TO BE NOTHING MORE THAN A "SYCOPHANTIC" ENABLER. I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE A FAR BETTER HUMAN BEING THAN "YOU" DUE TO MY ABILITY TO "CALL A SPADE A SPADE", PERIOD!!! LOL!!!

backfire    

Last time you reported Oksana got the house but only until her daughter turned 18 so keep it correct. Mel is a cheap skate creep. After he physically and verbally abused the mother of his child and with all his millions he gets puny and cheap with her. He's a creep.

If the female is the first to know the whereabouts of M.G.,
there's little doubt that the tabs. will be second
.
M.G.s second daughter is almost two, she is making her own friends and relationships, she might have had party plans or some such event to attend, returning to her mum might have messed up something the child was looking forward to.
.
the female might want to watch herself little girls do tend to love love love their daddys, all this unkindness directed toward M.G. will backfire, just as it is with the females son
.
the singing bar photo, is it dated, and has anyone come forward claiming M.G. was drinking adult bevs.
