Oksana Grigorieva asked judge to make Mel Gibson pay for her PR

It seems Oksana Grigorieva racked up $84.000 in PR expenses and certain unpaid legal fees.

TMZ found out that Oksana felt hiring PR reps was the only way counter someone as big and powerful as Mel Gibson. Oksana – who insists she didn’t sell the tapes – felt she was getting trashed in the media.

Oksana wants Judge Scott Gordon in the custody/child support case, to clear the $84.000 debt, according to sources.

But the judge would never award money for PR expenses. Aside from legal fees, Judge Gordon would adjust the existing agreement – $5,000 a month plus the house – only based on the needs of baby Lucia.

Oksana Grigorieva was asking the judge to determin Mel Gibson to pay much more than $5000 for her monthly child support. She wants more than $40,000.

It seems the judge has yet to rule on the request.

Oksana Grigorieva wants more money from Mel Gibson for Lucia’s child support

Oksana Grigorieva, who has accused Mel of beating and threatening to kill her and Lucia, asked him to up his child support payments.

Sources say Mel’s lawyers argued the kid is nine months old and doesn’t need more than Mel is paying – $5,000 per month plus additional living expenses.

Judge Scott Gordon decided not to rule on the spot, but to think that one over.

Mel Gibson’s court deposition has been postponed and sources say a date still has not been set. Oksana claims he’s trying to avoid it.

Attorneys for both sides were to discuss whether to seize the passport of Mel and Oksana’s daughter Lucia, so that neither party could take her out of the country but the matter never came up.

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva investigations are running side by side

While both investigations are ongoing, a decision will be made on whether to file charges at the same time.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has still plenty of work to do before sending the extortion case to the D.A.

Oksana Grigorieva may subpoena Robyn Gibson

In the meantime, Oksana’s lawyers are pretty unsure about Mel’s ex-wife claims that the actor was never violent during their marriage and are ready to subpoena Robyn Moore Gibson to appear before a deposition.

Mel left Robyn around the same time he got together with Oksana. Shortly after news of Mel’s divorce hit, Oksana Grigorieva became pregnant. She and Mel are also battling for custody of daughter Lucia, now nine months.

Oksana has told police that Mel once admitted hurling a TV at Robyn Gibson, and claims that she personally witnessed him hit his youngest son, Tommy.

Earlier this summer, Mel’s ex-wife, Robyn Moore Gibson, came to Mel’s defense with a sworn affidavit submitted to the court stating Mel was never once abusive to her or his kids.

“Mel never engaged in physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during, or after our marriage,” Robyn reportedly told the judge overseeing the case.

Considering the way their marriage ended and the leak of Mel’s phone meltdowns, Robyn’s support was surprising, leading some to question her motivation.

Gibson’s babysitter says he freaked out before fight

Before the incident Oksana went to a basketball game, leaving Mel, baby Lucia and the babysitter at Mel’s Malibu home.

According to sources connected with the case, the babysitter says Mel “began freaking out” while Oksana was gone, “slamming doors, cussing and screaming at someone on the phone.” The babysitter says Mel was screaming to someone on the phone, “I want to f**king destroy you.”

After that, the babysitter called Oksana and urged her to come home because Mel was losing it. The babysitter claims, “Mel was possessed and completely out of control.”

Sources say the babysitter was present when Oksana returned home but left before anything physical occurred.

Other sources, however, question the babysitter’s claims, because they say she never previously made any such allegations.

TMZ reports that people connected with the babysitter told that she didn’t come forward with her story because she’s fearful of Mel and is fighting stage 4 cancer and undergoing chemo.

Did Mel Gibson threatened to hit his daughter, Lucia?

According to Oksana, Mel said he would “hit” little Lucia, their baby girl, during an explosive blow-up with his ex-lover, saying “‘Take her! I will hit her!”.

This incident apparently happened on February 18.

If this ever proves to be true, we’re pretty sure he was extremely angry when he said that, BUT … nevertheless … no matter how nervous he was … under no circumstances he shouldn’t even think of that.

Anyway, it seems that this is the apparent reason why Mel supposedly texted her to say he “wasn’t safe for you last night.”

He may realised in just what state of mind he was … just how severe he lost his mind a night earlier.

Back on the story, on the 18th, Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva should have a party, celebrating their three-months-old daughter, Lucia.

But things turned ugly. Oksana says that Mel became angry because she was “smiling too much”.

“Oksana has recounted that Lucia began crying, so she went back inside – and Mel followed her in,” a source who is familiar with Oksana’s testimony, reveals.

“When they got inside, Mel started ridiculing Okana’s accent … In response, she said she rolled her eyes at Mel, which made him even more angry.”

The source said Grigorieva apologized to an irate Mel and “begged for forgiveness,” but Mel responded that Oksana was always irritated with him.

“Oksana said she told Mel that his comment was she was only irritated when he accused her of smiling at the gardener and made fun of her accent.”

Grigorieva then recalled: “This set off Mel and he flew into a rage.”

In the hours that followed, Mel returned to the house, after leaving for a break, at which point, “Oksana said Mel told her he needed to leave the house again, in order to show her and Lucia what ‘mean’ really is,” said the source.

“He also supposedly told Oksana, in regards to Lucia, ‘Take her! I will hit her. I have got to go,’” and Oksana took him at his word, taking Lucia to one of Mel’s other properties, in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

After that the phones started to ring. Those alone are a hideous spectacle.

Oksana Grigorieva hired a new lawyer: James Spertus

Both teams are growing as time goes by. After Mel Gibson hired his own private investigators, James Spertus, a former federal prosecutor and an experienced trial attorney who specializes in civil and criminal litigation, jois Oksana’s team.

She also met with civil rights campaigner Lisa Bloom as well as with Mark Lane, who wrote the famous JFK conspiracy book Rush to Judgment.

Besides James Spertus, in her legal team are also lawyers Manley Freid and Marci Levine.

All this army for her claims that Mel Gibson hit her on January 6 at his Malibu mansion while she held their daughter, Lucia. Oksana is considering filing a possible civil complaint against Mel.

Gibson, on the other hand, has accused Oksana of trying to extort money from him after recording his rants over the phone.

One of her new lawyers believes that Oksana’s home is full of bugs. She thinks that Mel or the media has planted cameras or wiretapping devices in her house and Spertus doesn’t want to take chances and probably sugested to hire experts who can sweep Oksana’s home for bugs.

It appears that James Spertus is a nationally recognized expert on computers and other electronic gadgets, so he should have no problem with that task.

Is Mel Gibson going to sit for his deposition?

Friends of Oksana Grigorieva – who accuses Gibson of beating her – claim that he deliberately stalling to avoid sitting for his deposition.

The reason – in their opinion – would be the fact that Mel does not want his deposition taken before the L.A. County District Attorney makes a decision on whether to prosecute the actor.

The D.A.’s office will make ts decision on whether the police’s domestic violence investigation warrants charges against him within the next couple of weeks.

TMZ, however, speculates that Mel will almost certainly choose to assert his Fifth Amendment privilege on most, if not all, of the events surrounding the January 6 fight.

Oksana was not hapy learning that Mel was out of the country on a fishing trip, especially because the deposition was scheduled more than two weeks ago.

Other sources dispute that Mel is intentionally avoiding his deposition, saying he will be back this weekend and the deposition should take place shortly.

Meanwhile, Gibson apparently hired some private investigators attempting to discredit Oksana Grigorieva.

Mel Gibson hires private investigators, attempting to discredit Oksana Grigorieva

According to Radar Online, the private detectives have already visited two witnesses who are willing to provide evidence against Mel, being accused of domestic violence on Oksana Grigorieva on January 6.

Oksana Grigorieva said to the police, who were investigating the domestic violence, that Gibson hit her twice before leaving her with two broken teeth and a concussion.

One of the witnesses to visit Gibson’s private detectives was Oksana dentist Dr. Sheldon Ross, whose accounts of the injuries Oksana suffered have varied.

“This calculated ploy explains the conflicting stories the dentist supposedly made about injuries Oksana suffered at the hands of Mel,” said a source.

Despite the seemingly contradictory stories, Dr. Sheldon is willing to go further on the file, confirming that Oksana received a blow, after which she suffered.

The punches of January 6, were not the first signs of domestic violence from Gibson. In November, 2009, just weeks after Lucia was born, Oksana was assaulted by Mel.

“Oksana said Mel got right up in her face during a confrontation and was screaming and berating her,” said a source familiar with the investigation.

She told law enforcement Mel was so worked up, he was literally frothing at the mouth as he spewed hatred and even spat saliva in her face.

“Oksana said Mel pushed her on the shoulder and butted her with his chest,” said the source. “Oksana claimed Mel pushed her a number of times.”

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department will turn over the case to the D.A.’s office, which will decide whether to file charges, in about two weeks.

Another witness on the horizon of Gibson-Grigorieva scandal

He said he witnessed clashes between Gibson and Grigorieva, and says he could be a “star witness” in the ongoing investigation of domestic violence against Gibson.

Jimmy, this is the guy’s name, witnessed the hard words between Gibson and Grigorieva, for several months, and has provided a legal declaration stating so.

Jimmy said to several sources close to Oksana, people who know her quite well, both professionally and personally, that he was with her every day during the 10 months to help her in her music, so they can attest to his behavior.

According to sources, Jimmy heard the offensive words frequently addressed by Mel to Oksana like: whore, slut, b! Tch, c ** t, etc.. Words that can be heared on the tapes recorded by Oksana. Apparently, a cause of Gibson exits was the jealousy. When were men around Oksana, Gibson loses control.

Jimmy said that he would have never seen Gibson physically abusing Grigorieva, nor was present on January 6, when Oksana accuses Mel of domestic violence. It is rumored that other witnesses had seen the physical abuse, but their identity remains unclear.

Even if the sound engineer has given a written statement including “Eyewitness Account” to Oksana lawyers of several alleged fights between Oksana and Mel, L.A. County Sheriff’s, investigators still have not talked to Jimmy.

Mel has not been charged with a crime and police are also investigating Oksana of extortion against Gibson.

William and Tommy Gibson could play a significant role in the battle for the custody of Lucia and for the investigation of Mel’s domestic violence.

Oksana Grigorieva accused Gibson of domestic violence in January, saying that he hit her while she was holding their daughter in her arms. Oksana also said she feared for her life and Lucia’s.

Oksana, her mother and Lucia were huddled at Mel’s gesture. William, one of the seven sons of Mel and Robyn Gibson (Robyn deny that he has ever been abusive) was also there.

Until now the identity of this witness was not known.

A source told Radar Online: “Oksana’s mother was downstairs at the time but apparently heard the screaming and commotion and immediately went upstairs.”

“After she saw Mel screaming at Oksana, she ran out and quickly returned with Mel’s son, William, who attempted to engage Mel in conversation.”

“William tried to talk Mel down from his tirade and engage him in a conversation while Oksana and her mom fled to a guest room with the baby.”

Earlier this week, Oksana claimed Mel hit Tommy, his youngest son at a hockey game at L.A. Staples Center, two and a half years ago.

“Oksana said that approximately two-and-a-half-years ago, while Mel and Tommy were in her presence, Mel hit Tommy in the head,” said a source.
