If Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva keep it up, their baby, Lucia, is going to have the worst childhood.
As the custody battle and various other court proceedings are still underway, when it comes to give and take, there’s not much give.
TMZ reports that Gibson won’t be seeing Lucia on her birthday on Saturday, as the court has agreed with Oksana’s camp.
Gibson has Lucia today and is required to deliver her back to Oksana tonight, however the Gibson’s nanny who usually does the driving back and forth is sick—which prompted Gibson to ask the judge for an overnight visit in order to avoid any trouble.
Problem for Gibson is, Oksana knows that he also has another nanny who is very capable of doing the job, so when she demanded that Lucia be brought back to her tonight, the court kept things to-the-book. As per their current custody agreement, the court decided that Gibson will have to bring the baby back later this evening.
I bet Lucia already can’t wait to be the age of majority.
Mel Gibson’s semi-crazy ex, Oksana Grigorieva, has just been offered the chance to ho it up on the cover of Playboy magazine, TMZ reports.
The Hef’s company has offered Oksana $75,000 to strip to her skivvies and pose for the mag, also offering her the cover if she so wishes. The offer is for a “full nude” spread – meaning that we could be seeing a lot more of Grigorieva than we bargained for.
Oksana has not yet responded to the offer, but it seems likely that she’ll take it to pay off her outstanding legal fees. Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, especially with a failing music career and an abusive ex-spouse under her belt!
Go ahead, Oksana! We know you need that cash pretty badly. Just keep baby Lucia away from Google for a while!
Oksana Grigorieva is right; it’s a real outrage when you’re only getting $5,000 a month in child support. I mean, with inflation and everything, that kind of cash is chump change, right?
Right! According to TMZ, a judge issued an order Thursday afternoon that increases the child support payments that Mel Gibson makes to Oksana from $5,000 a month to $20,000 a month.
Now she’ll be able to provide their child, Lucia, with everything she needs—like those super pimp gold grills that little kids are wearing these days. Just the necessities!
If Oksana had gotten what she thought she needed, Lucia could have even had diamonds put into her grills. TMZ says that Oksana’s lawyers were hoping for $60,000 a month.
Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson signed an agreement in May and the document basically gives Oksana and Lucia, the child they share, with a crazy amount of money. All Oksana had to do in return was destroy the tapes.
TMZ got hold of the document which states, that Oksana must “turn over all ‘evidence’, and represent and warrant that all evidence has been turned over and all evidence will be destroyed in a manner agreed upon by both parties.”
The document goes on to describe the so called evidence as all “recordings, audio tapes, emails, text messages, videotapes and photographs … of Gibson.”
Now, Mel seems to think that his reputation is worth a lot of money—around $15 million.
The document gives Oksana $1 million when she turns over the evidence, $10,000 a month for 18 years, and a $1 million life insurance policy on Gibson among other things.
Now, you’re probably saying to yourself, “with these two people, the agreement can’t be that simple, can it?” You’re right, it can’t! Despite signing the first version of the document, when it came time to write her name on the final version of it, Oksana declined, claiming that she was unaware that it would give Gibson unsupervised visits with Lucia.
It’s not bad news for the kid, though. In the document that was signed, Lucia would get $50,000 per year for 20 years, $10,000 a year for 20 years for college expenses, $4,000 per month in child support for 18 years and a whopping $4.3 mil when Gibson passes away.
At this rate, Oksana won’t have to split up from a millionaire actor and start a huge legal battle for another two decades!
Things sure have changed from when we reported that Oksana wanted $6,000 a month, just a couple of weeks back. TMZ reports that Mel is currently sending Oksana $5,000 a month for child support, but she wants even more now.
Oksana thinks that she should be getting $40,000 a month to take care of baby Lucia, but unfortunately for her, the court knows that she’s already receiving just $2,500 per month for another child, a 13-year-old boy, and getting by just fine.
Either Lucia is the world’s most expensive child, or Oksana is crazy.
The Mel Gibson vs. Oksana Grigorieva scandal gets better and better every week, so get out the popcorn! Usually when relationships and careers are crumbling, it isn’t nice to sit back and watch, but when it’s Mel and Oksana, it’s hard to look away.
The latest from the trenches courtroom is about Gibson’s child support payments.
RadarOnline reports that Gibson’s camp claims that his cash is limited to about $600,000 a month and only believes that Oksana should be receiving $6,000—exactly 1% of what he has—in support payments for taking care of their 9-month-old daughter Lucia.
Now, either Mel has a handful of other baby momma’s to support or it seems as though he’s trying to cut Oksana short, very short.
Oksana believes she should be receiving more, but unfortunately for her, Mel thinks that his $7.2 million a year is a necessity that he just can’t live without; he also claims that Oksana has some unnecessary expenses, like her bodyguards. A note to Oksan: Definitely hang on to the bodyguards.
Both teams seem to be pretty set in their ways right now, so it might be a good time for a bathroom break before you come back to the entertainment!
