Oksana Grigorieva knows that Mel Gibson can sooooo pay the child support she wants but do you think her requested increase is fair from $5K to $40…I have no idea! Mel currently pays $5000, plus the home they live in and her other baby dady only pays $2500 for her 13 year old! I feel bad for everything that has happened with Oksana and Mel but let’s be serious here…he is really paying OksanaÂ supportÂ because kids don’t need too much at this age!
According to TMZ,
Oksana Grigorieva is asking the judge to make Mel Gibson buck up — WAAY up — by increasing her monthly child support from $5,000 a month to more than $40,000 … sources tell TMZ.
As we’ve reported, Mel currently pays Oksana the tidy sum of $5,000 a month in child support for baby Lucia, and also pays for the Sherman Oaks house where they live. But we’re told Oksana now wants nearly 10 times what she currently gets.
Here’s what’s interesting. Our sources say Oksana gets $2,500 a month in child support from Timothy Dalton — the father of her 13-year-old son Alexander.
It’s a tough sell convincing Judge Scott Gordon that a 9 month old baby needs nearly 20 times more money than a 13 year old boy.
One source scoffed, “Lifestyle is not an issue for a 9-month-old. Think she knows the difference between a Ford and a Bentley?”
We’re told Judge Gordon has not ruled on Oksana’s petition for more dough. Holding breath — not advisable.
