Mel Gibson and hie ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva have finally reached an agreement on over a custody dispute and money issues, but it seems like the side has turned and it has all calmed down.
Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend have reached a financial and custody settlement of a bitter dispute that spawned a criminal case and left the Academy Award winner’s reputation damaged.
Los Angeles Superior Court officials said in a statement late Friday that Gibson and Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva had reached an agreement after days of negotiation. Terms and conditions of the settlement were not announced, but a hearing Wednesday will be held to discuss the financial terms.
The equally contentious issue of custody of the couple’s infant daughter will be handled in closed session, the court announced.
Gibson’s spokesman Alan Nierob confirmed the settlement and said the actor-director appreciated the judge’s help in mediating the case.
Grigorieva spokesman Stephen Jaffe declined comment.
The former couple have sparred for more than a year over custody and financial issues in a mostly-secret court proceeding in Los Angeles. In June 2010, Gibson’s attorney Stephen Kolodny said that his client had provided his ex-girlfriend with a four-bedroom, multimillion dollar home, vehicle and tens of thousands of dollars a month.
