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?"

I think the rest of my comment got cut off. Neither are worth a second effort. Send them to a small deserted island. They deserve each other. What a way to gain fame.

Why the hell should she get a settlement? For what, being a whore? Sounds like prostitution to me

I had no idea that a boyfriend had any financial obligation to an ex-girlfriend. Is Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend entitled to a bunch of money if she breaks up with him?

I guess Oksana should lead the charge for "girlfriend rights".

She basically agreed to free rent and 41k per year for 18 years (750k/18). That's chump change to multi millionaire Mel! She signed off on it - case closed.

Don't forget Horowitch bought her some books on law. She has had time to read them and now thinks she is a lawyer. She is just making an ash of herself.

Another indication that she's delusional. She's lucky Mel hasn't gone back to court to REDUCE her $20K a month in child support, since he's not really working these days.

And the house - - that's a laugh. It was never going to be hers. "her house" - - my azz.

She's got 15 years now, to scrimp and save for her retirement, and plenty of money to do it on.

And let us all be mindful - -"the attorney who represents himself, has a fool for a client.

This old woman is not ageing well, is she? Someone see if we can't get her unattractive ass deported. The gal she claims to be her sister, is actually her eldest child. This chick probably didn't marry Mel when she had the chance, because he'd have seen her real info. Grandma needs to get smart, and stay away from the courts, before it back fires on her ass. Go bug the 007 star you gold dug on too, bitch.

This woman and her whining are the best thing that could happen for Mel. It actually makes him look better, and I did not think that was remotely possible.

Apparently, she has burned through the $750k settlement, which was separate from the child support and house, which are for Lucia.
