Oksana Grigorieva Sues

My Lawyers Screwed Me

in Mel Gibson Settlement

1/17/2013 4:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117-tmz-oksana-grigorievaOksana Grigorieva says she was sabotaged by her own lawyers in her settlement with Mel Gibson -- and wound up with a TERRIBLE custody agreement ... and now she's suing.

TMZ has obtained legal docs, filed by Oksana herself (without a lawyer) ... in which she accuses Ron Litz and Daniel Horowitz of negligently advising her to sign off on a bad deal back in 2011.

According to Oksana's lawsuit, the crappy deal she signed forbids her from pursuing any future legal action against Mel regarding their child without jeopardizing the monetary settlement she made from the actor. And as we all know about Oksana ... she LOOOVES to take legal action against people.

As part of Oksana's deal with Mel ... the actor had agreed to pay Oksana $750k in cash ... PLUS provide a house for Oksana and their daughter Lucia until Lucia turns 18.

Oksana says was also advised to sign a legal document that divested her of all ownership rights to her house ... a document she claims she never would have signed if not for the lawyers.

Oksana is demanding unspecified damages.

We spoke with Horowitz who tells us, "Why can't she just live her life normally and have a good life, raise the kid, live in the house, make music, be happy?"

He adds, "Why does she always have to be in a struggle -- especially with people who care the most about her?"

Had to laugh when I saw this posted on TMZ. I think its hillarious how the European articles says that OG and MG were married when the Gibsons still were married at the time, OG must think they don't know any different. For a person who constantly seems to be so naive and so misled by others, ha! ha!, OG sure knows how to find lawyers (lowers) to fight for her versions of her stories, they manage to work out reasonable deals for her with qualified legal people, top judges, and whomever looking on, signing off on papers, and within months and discussion with who knows who, OG has once again been used and abused financially by the former legal people who had helped her. But am sure its the smell of possible MG money that is dwindling by the minute that is attracting this people. I think Horowitz comments about OG really say it all don't they.

Hi Cuji!!!

Your theory is indeed interesting but it really doesn't make "ANY" sense!!! For starters, Ole Greedy has been "RAKING MEN OVER THE COALS" for decades. By now, I'm quite sure she knows that unless an agreement is "IN WRITING" or "WITNESSED" by a "RELIABLE" third party -- SHE'S SCREWED"!!! If there were "ANY SIDE DEALS" in place, more than likely they were between "HER" AND "HER ATTORNEY" which is "WHY" she's "SCREAMING LIKE A BANSHEE"!!! She was well aware of the "NON SUE" clause she's complaining about because a similar one was included as part of the short-form draft of the "ORIGINAL MEDIATED CUSTODY AGREEMENT" she signed. At this point, the "FOOL" can't use "IGNORANCE" as an excuse because the "PRESIDING JUDGE", "HER LEGAL TEAM" AND "MEL GIBSON'S LEGAL TEAM" required her to ATTEST IN "OPEN COURT" STREAMED LIVE VIA THE INTERNET TO THE PUBLIC THAT SHE "FULLY UNDERSTOOD" WHAT THE HELL SHE WAS SIGNING!!! She's angry because "NO ONE" is "INTERESTED" in financing her "NON EXISTENT" MUSICAL CAREER!!! What's even "SADDER" is her "SICKENING DEPENDENCE UPON MEN" to make things happen for her!!! If she actually had an "APPEALING SET" of "PEOPLE SKILLS" and didn't "BURN ALL OF HER BRIDGES", she could actually make her own way in life. Her formula of "SEX + MEN = SUCCESS" is the "OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK" but without other important character attributes, it will only take a chick so far. It's about time for Ole Greedy to rise about her "VICTIMIZATION MENTALITY" and take control of her "OWN" FORTUNES!!! THE "NAIVE EMIGREE" HUSTLE IS ALL PLAYED THE HELL OUT, MY FRIEND!!! CUJI, WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!

Fact: The market for Russian Rap music doesn't exist.

Fact: Abusing the US legal system is till an option.

Fact: Someone is livid because they weren't at Mel Gibson's side at the Golden Globe Awards

Hello to all.

Seeing OG show her true colors again is a call to wake up. And to remember that her past behaviors of lying, threatening, suing, unprecedented greed and delusion have not been stopped. She has reared her ugly head again. Playing the victim again with her usual inconsistencies. Now aiming at her ex, Harrow-wits.

Black widows don't have to marry, just mating inspires them to kill the male.

No one can do anything but speculate until the investigation report from the Sheriffs department is released. It would tell the real story of what happened.

Why was it shut down? Could it be because the evidence in it would be damaging to someone other than OG? Talk about power in the legal system! If there is nothing to hide, then where is it?

Until we see that report, then all of Cujo's "speculations" are just that.

Funny how Cujo keeps accusing others of speculating, when he/she is the king/queen of speculations in here. Speculations that are tinged with an exaggerated sense of self importance, as he/she egotistically disregards the opinions and speculations of others. Cujo harps on putting everyone who disagrees with him/her as being in the same category as he/she is. Eg. Unintelligent bully.

The other issue that's been forgotten is (who sold the tapes)? Who profited by them? Were they sold because the extortion attempt did not fulfill the extortionists terms? Was it a third party that knew about them? Eg. GA?

Someone said that ROL will never reveal who sold them the tapes. But who ever it was, would probably have gotten a huge amount of money. Easily could have been millions. After all, look at the mileage ROL got out of them and the publicity that followed.

And doesn't anyone remember Hertzog telling people that Ox was planning on getting hundreds of millions? And the people he threatened on OGs behalf? GA was involved in that up to her greedy little eyeballs.

Shout out hey to all!

Just laughing too darn hard to make much sense, but is this the "arteest" at work on her own publicity?

Hello to all and am still laughing. Have to go read some more incomprehensible nonsense from PoxyDoxyOxy.

Flock did you notice that TMZ Live did a segment on Hollywood baby daddies that included Gibby? They were speculating about him spreading his seed once more, with Jodie Foster the recipient.
It would explain their inexplicable bond, considering his holiness frowns upon gays. I guess a female Hollywood gay with money is ok though.
It appears it requires Cackook's abacus to keep track of the prolific breeder's offspring - legit, illegit, secret and sperm donor. Lets do the math - 1 per adult year?

I find it curious that an article on OG attracted many more MG fans than the ones on MG himself.
Why is that?
Isn't this giving OG too much attention?
Won't the excessive clicks induce tmz to give OG more of the limelight that she so craves?
She seems to have the "Speak badly of me, but speak of me" personality, so she must be thrilled at all the attention she's getting.
I personally would love to see all the "gang" collect on a positive article on MG and ignore OG, but then we'd depend on tmz to deliver that, which is not going to happen given their negative slant on their articles about him. Perhaps therein lies the answer - folks don't want to reward tmz (with clicks) for their typical vilification of MG?
Just curious.

And to think you blew threw that much money so fast.............. good thing Mel went fishing! Start the court claims now because it will take years and by then Mr. Dalton's money ends .

Just found out that this article was here, I enjoyed reading the comments from everyone (pro or not). I knew she'd sue, we all figured she would. Good to see a lot of people I enjoyed commenting, glad to see you have health and are still in the internet land.
