Oksana Grigorieva Sues

My Lawyers Screwed Me

in Mel Gibson Settlement

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

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?"

During the settlement negotiations, she kept claiming that all she was concerned about was the welfare of Lucia and making sure Lucia was taken care of. Well, the settlement took care of that. So, what is Oksana's complaint? That she didn't get enough for herself? What a greedy biatch.

Hello, Azlee! So good to read your post!


Breasonable -- you make a good point; absolutely. OG is mad that she can't haul Mel back to court over 'something' (read that as 'anything') concerning Lucia. But, the thing is, they have joint custody and Lucia is with Mel half of the time. OG does not need to take Mel to court over Lucia. There is nothing more to hash out in court because it's all been hashed out. OG would be wasting time, money, and effort on any further litigation over this, and that's all she wants to do. Maybe she would like to go through another 47 lawyers at Mel's expense! There is no need. And, just to insure that she doesn't get any ideas, it sounds like there is an iron-clad clause in their agreement that she will lose HER money if she does. I LOVE IT!

Calm down, Cuj. It was my understanding at the last hearing that the $750K was in full and final settlement of any CIVIL issues that Oxy still had.

There was a separate hearing that same day on the custody/child support issues, which was closed to the public.

The problem with Oxy, as I see it, is that she really doesn't process very well. For example, this issue with ownership of the house. She never had any ownership interest, never was going to have ownership interest, and now she's saying she "signed away her ownership interest". Does not compute.

Once again Bovine needs to be called to the carpet for making false projections. How can you say Ox would never have any ownership interest?

Bovine have you ever heard of a judge throwing an old woman of retirement age out of her home to give it up to her 18 year old? Child support is not to be used as a nest egg for a future home purchase either. It is to provide the child with the lifestyle they've (both) become accustomed to.
To provide continuity for the child, he's not going to allow Lucia to go back and forth from one of Gibby's sprawling compounds to a dump in West Hollywood, ESP when there's enough $POTC$ to go around.

Laura and bastard Bellizzi baby got their own crib - no doubt free and clear without losing one tooth.

Matt Damon would probably be a very good friend to Oksana Griogrieva if she will ever meet Matt Damon. If she was on Jimmy Kimmel live with Matt Damon he would make Oksana giggle and she will think that Matt Damon is the man just like I think Matt's the man. Matt Damon would make Oksana giggle a lot on the Jimmy Kimmel live show because it's funny. Matt Damon would probably help Oksana Grigorieva with her problems Matt Damon would be very good at helping out Oksana with any problems Matt Damon would be like a counselor to Oksana because in 7th grade I saw a video in health class where Matt Damon was talking about people having tough times in life. So Matt Damon would be a very great and kind friend to Oksana if they ever met each other on Jimmy Kimmel live and it will make Oksana giggle. Now I don't know if they will ever meet each other or not it was just my great suggestion because Matt Damon is a very good man he is an especially a great helper to people who had complicated problems. Like Matt Damon would be very good wirth helping Oksana it's not definitely likely that it will happen though!
