Oh Mel Gibson, you’re always in hot water. Now Mel’s former love interest, Oksana Grigorieva – a pianist and composer known for her relationships with high-profile men – is demanding that he pay for the $84,000 in PR expenses and legal fees she racked up after tapes of him berating her in colorful and offensive language surfaced.
Oksana apparently felt hiring PR reps was the only way counter someone as big and powerful asÂ Mel Gibson. Â She insists she didn’t sell the tapes – felt she was getting trashed in the media. It’s unlikely a judge would award payment for legal expenses when so far he’s only ruled monetary damages based on need. But the verdict for the case is still out. The verdict on Mel’s rampant, abusive behavior? We’ll let you be the judge!
Sources say Oksana wants Judge Scott Gordon in the custody/child support case to clear the $84,000 debt.
Here’s the disconnect.
TheÂ judge would never award money for PR expenses.Â 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.
As TMZ first reported, Oksana’s lawyers have gone to court and asked Judge Gordon to up the monthly child support obligation to upwards of $40,000.
TMZ is told the judge has yet to rule on the request.
