Mel Gibson is in it now…His Baby Mama….has said he was violent towards her! Then there areÂ theÂ secretÂ tapping’sÂ and the custody disputes.
According to TMZ,
Mel Gibson’s baby mama Oksana Grigorieva was bitter over a custody agreement she signed, and that’s why she made up the story that Mel beat her up … this according to sources connected with the actor.
TMZ broke the story … Oksana’s lawyers went to court last Monday and got a domestic violence restraining order against Mel after telling the judge Mel beat Oksana up last January.
According to sources connected with Mel, on January 6, 2010, Mel and Oksana were arguing at home when Oksana took baby Lucia, ran around the backyard, threw herself on the ground, came back inside the house and began shaking Lucia like a ragdoll. Mel followed and the sources acknowledge there was physical contact, but insist Mel did not punch her and was just trying to protect the baby.
The sources say Oksana began traveling the world with Mel and made no mention to anyone about being the victim of brutality at the hands of M.G.
In May, after the couple split, there was a mediation in which Mel and Oksana got joint legal custody of Lucia — Oksana got primary physical custody and Mel got visitation, which included overnights. The deal was … the arrangement was eventually supposed to turn into 50/50 custody.
Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ Oksana regretted agreeing to the mediated custody settlement and wanted to limit or even exclude Mel’s contact with Lucia.
A week ago Friday, Mel’s representatives got a call from Oksana’s lawyer, saying Oksana would not allow Mel to spend time with Lucia on Father’s Day … something to which she had already agreed.
According to sources, at noon on Monday, Oksana’s lawyer called Mel’s rep and said she got a restraining order against him to stay 100 yards from her and couldn’t even see Lucia until a hearing in July.
The next day, Mel’s lawyer went to the judge and got the restraining order modified, allowing him to see Lucia — just like it was agreed before.
During the hearing, it came out that Oksana had secretly taped arguments she had with Mel. The judge ordered the tapes sealed and also ordered Oksana not to talk publicly about the recordings.
And, we’re told, the judge was extremely unhappy with Oksana’s lawyer for not revealing that there had been a mediated custody agreement in place.
And Now Oksana is saying that Mel gives her no cash…it was all gravy when the were together and he spent money on her but now that they have separated…Â itsÂ aÂ differentÂ story now!
It always comes down to money…
Oksana Grigorieva claims Mel Gibson doesn’t help her financially at all when it comes to raising their daughter, this according to an interview with the Russian singer.
Grigorieva tells The Mail on Sunday that she has to borrow money from friends and use credit cards in order to support herself and her nine-month-old daughter Lucia. She tells the paper, “He is not paying me a penny. Nothing.”
As for their break-up, Grigorieva claims she was the one that broke up with him, not the other way around.
