Mel Gibson in Custody Battle for Youngest Child



Filed under : Celebrity News

Mel Gibson’s controversial father and almost-ex-wife are to be questioned by Oksana Grigorieva’s lawyers in an ongoing custody battle for Mel and Oksana’s young daughter, Lucia. Subpoenas are to be served, forcing the two to appear before a deposition in Mel’s child custody war with the mother of his youngest child.

That is where things could get very interesting, as Mel’s father, Hutton Gibson is infamous as an ultra-conservative Catholic who has launched many racist rants in the past – declared Pope Benedict XVI gay and stated that the Holocaust was made up by the Jews. Mel Gibson never criticized his father publicly for these views.

None of that will come up in court this time, though, of course. But what truth could come out of his mouth when he is asked about what Mel confided to him about the Russian singer and the incident in January 2010 that left Oksana with two broken dental veneers.

Oksana’s lawyers are seeking to determine a possible motivation for Mel allegedly beating her up.

Mel’s wife of 28 years, Robyn Moore, from whom he is soon to be divorced, is also be subpoenaed. Lawyers will want to know if the “Lethal Weapon” star has a history of violence. Robyn, whom Mel left for Oksana, will be questioned about the sworn affidavit she submitted to a Los Angeles court which stated that Mel (55) had never been abusive to her nor his children.

Oksana refutes this. She has told police how Mel once admitted throwing a television at Robyn during an argument. She has also said she saw Mel hit his youngest son, Tommy, around the head, during a hockey game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Oksana says this is just one example if Mel’s frequent rages.

Gibson has already pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery on a spouse or cohabitant in the Los Angeles Superior Court (March 2011), for the January 2010 attack on Oksana. He was sentenced to three years’ probation and 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling.

Now, baby Lucia’s passport has been surrendered so neither parent can take her out of the country. The couple are to fight it out in court as to who has custody, access arrangements and maintenance payments.

    If BB’s suggestions somehow comes true, will the main character perhaps be called “Squirtnatius Perrish”, Joe?

    ALMOST EX-WIFE, how stupid!!!!! He got played. He fell for the golddigger. And she will be paid. I know he kicks himself daily. Either that, or he’s still pining for her money hungry ass. Can’t feel bad for him in the sense, he left what was more real and grounded (his wife & kids) for a piece of young (dirty, trifling, etc) ass, that will f@$k! him for many years to come. If he’s pining for the b!!!ch, then let HIM burn. He deserves that and more. And no, I am not an angry divorcee (not divorced).

    Mel admitted NO GUILT, read up on what is a ‘West Plea’. Ox has left a trail of lies and used men–a life long thing learned from her gypsy relatives.

    This author needs to read up on exactly what Hutton Gibson actually said–which he obviously doesn’t have a clue about.

    If they interview Mel’s parent and ex, then I’m sure Mel’s lawyers will interview HER parents and ex(s). OH I HOPE SO!

    I have no doubt with his kind of rage Mel gets more than a little physical with the kids. Robyn will probably say it’s just good old fashioned discipline, and not abuse since she is likely in denial plus she’s waiting to collect her own sizable chunk of pie. But it seems that Oksana knew this so she just comes off like scum for having a child with him. Realistically how fast could he change enough to be safe with children especially considering his age? I have no idea what he told his bigot father about her but you would think his ideas and Gibson’s own comments would be a hint about the dangers of these people.

    Separation isn’t the same thing as divorce. There’s always an underlying understanding that the couple might reconcile. Adultery isn’t a legal ground for divorce in CA. Robyn had to file under “irreconcilable differance and noted Oksana within the body of the complaint.

    Mel did admit in July 2009 court papers that he smacked Oksana. Futhermore Mel’s already raised 7 other children and children services investigated and closed the case.

    Mel isn’t doing anything other than try to move on. Oksana won’t leave him or his family alone. She needs to get that Mel doesn’t want her and leave him alone; move on, get a job, suport herself and get another man. But what man with money will want her now, I don’t know.

    How can Mel, who just admitted to domestic violence, suddenly file for sole custody?!! That is nuts! He will never win. He is dragging everyone (including Robyn & father) thru endless BS, why?…”cause Oksana told on me” That’s why. He wants his violence to be a secret. Just when I was beginning to believe all that spin Jodie Foster was giving to mental illness, like we all should have compassion for Mel, because SHE wants to be a director. Mel, be a Man, take responsibility–you aren’t going to be a stay-at-home daddy anyway. Mel is lucky to have so much visitation.

    Mel never left his wife Robyn for Oksana. Robyn Gibson filed for separation 3 weeks after Mel’s DUI in July 2006. Thats why Robyn cited “irreconciable differences” and not adultery.

    Mel did not even know Oksana until April 2007 and then it was only a small recording deal with his Icon Production Co. until they actually began an affair in December 2008.

    Why do I have a feeling this article is totally made up.

    TMZ would have the first scoop of any court date and dealings and considering Oksana has told so many lies under oath (it’s called perjury) why would anyone take her word over Robyn Gibson. Besides, Mel’s father has nothing to do with this case. Oksana needs something or someone to keep this fight going because she and her lawyers want to get their hands on more of Mel’s money.

    Stay strong Mel. Your lawyers are far more savvy than Oksana’s.

    Oksana is as low class as she can get. Not only is she a freeloading deadbeat golddigger but the former mistress is deposing the wife to find out about her marraige.
