Despite the fact that Oksana Grigorieva tells every interviewer that she has “no plans” to marry baby-daddy Mel Gibson, the National Enquirer is still running stories about Mel and Oksana’s impending wedding. There are some shifting goalposts and contradictions, but the basic gist has remained the same. The Enquirer claims that shortly after Oksana gives birth (maybe in November or December), Mel wants a wedding sometime around Christmas, probably at Mel’s private Holy Family Chapel in Agoura Hills. Whether this is true, I have no idea. In any case, you kind of have to take the Enquirer’s word for it to believe this story… apparently, Oksana is saying “nyet” to Mel Gibson’s generous pre-nup offer.
Mel Gibson’s fiancee has said “Nyet!” to his prenup offer. Now pals say Mel – who has to pony up about half his $1 billion fortune to estranged wife Robyn – could pay a staggering $250 million if his second marriage crumbles.
Pregnant Oksana Grigorieva is reportedly due to deliver the couple’s baby girl in early December. They are rumored to be planning a Christmas wedding.
Oksana “gave Mel a kick in the head when she flat-out refused to sign” the prenup agreement, a longtime family friend told The Enquirer. Mel’s offer was generous – $5 million a year for up to 10 years, the friend confided.
“But Oksana wants all or nothing. The same thing happened when she was engaged to Timothy Dalton – and she walked away.”
“She had Timothy’s baby, but refused to marry him because he insisted on a prenup to protect his fortune,” said the friend. “Oksana was offended by it – and now she’s telling Mel the same thing.”
Mel is “seriously conflicted by Oksana’s reaction,” revealed the friend. “He’s such a God-fearing Catholic, he’s adamant that getting married to her is the right thing to do.”
“But she’s stubborn. She’ll give him up before she’ll sign. She’s done it before.”

Now, most reports do have Mel Gibson “lavishing” gifts on Oksana, and Oksana eating it up. With caviar. If this is true, how do we read it? Is Oksana holding out for more money? Or was she genuinely offended by Mel’s demands for any kind of pre-nup. I won’t mock her for that, I know a lot of women who are genuinely offended when men talk about prenups because they think it’s not romantic. Me? I’m a pragmatist. I wouldn’t scoff at $5 million a year for bangin’ Mel’s crazy ass. Well… let me rethink that. If Oksana was a really smart golddigger (which she may be) she could ask that a “Sugart-ts Clause” be added to the prenup. As in, if Mel Gibson ever gets drunk and makes a public ass out of himself, she gets a huge payday. That’s totally what I would do.
