Mel Gibson gets a restraining order against baby-mama Oksana

38094, WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - Friday February 26 2010. A sombre-looking Mel Gibson shows up at the BOA steakhouse alone. Following an eight-year absence, the actor recently turned to the big screen with the thriller Edge of Darkness Photograph: David Tonnessen,

I was just thinking a few days ago that it had been a while since we heard any insane drama from Mel Gibson and his Russian baby-mama Oksana, so now it’s just like Christmas morning for me! Radar reports that Mel has just filed a restraining order against Oksana, bitches! Oh, happy day. Apparently the order is sealed, which means no one should be leaking anything to the press (whoops), and it’s something about custody or access to their daughter Lucia.

Now, just a few months ago all the drama began. Oksana and Mel announced their split and it seemed relatively amicable. Then Oksana flew to Russia and gave a bizarre, cryptic interview which made it sound like she had some dirt on Mel (shocking!). Then she gave another interview to Hello Magazine where she “set the record straight” about their relationship, and she confirmed that they had been together for three years, not one, as Mel wanted us to believe (for the sake of his divorce). There were also some reports that Mel was definitely paying Oksana off to keep her big Russian yap quiet, and there was gossip that Mel was boning a Polish porn producer while he was with Oksana. So, this is the next juicy chapter:

Mel Gibson has filed a restraining order against the mother of his illegitimate seven-month-old daughter, has learned exclusively. In a blockbuster development in his bitter break-up with Oksana Grigorieva, the 54-year-old actor lodged the paperwork under seal at the Los Angeles Superior Court in Downtown Los Angeles Thursday.

The plaintiff is listed as Mel Gibson and the defendant is Oksana Grigorieva. Grigorieva was served the documents at her home in Sherman Oaks around 5pm Wednesday, confirmed.

While the case is sealed — meaning the documents cannot be released to the public — has learned the complaint centers around three issues and Gibson’s access to daughter Lucia.

Gibson filed a temporary restraining order, a notice about a forthcoming court hearing and a notice of visitation rights and child custody. Gibson’s rep had no comment when contacted by Gibson and Grigorieva, the Russian musician-singer, split in April, after over a year of dating.

At the time, the split was described as amicable and the pair said they planned to co-parent. However, Grigorieva hinted the break-up was complicated: “We have split up, suddenly and recently… Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.”

In April of last year, Gibson’s wife Robyn filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage. Later that month, he and Grigorieva made their first public appearance together as a couple.

In addition to Lucia, Gibson has seven children — six sons and a daughter — while Grigorieva has a son, Alexander, with her former boyfriend, actor Timothy Dalton.

My guess is that this is less about access to Lucia and more about getting Oksana to shut up. I think she probably has the goods on Mel, including everything from details about his money, his faith, his anti-Semeitism (just a guess), his other women and his drinking. Even though Mel has put himself out there as sober for several years now, I’m not buying it, and I’m sure Oksana was prepared to clear some things up. But now she can’t! Temporarily. Do you think she would sit on her story for a big cash money payday? Yep.

    Everyone except Mel knew this would not end well. He may have had a clue when she got pregnant, but who knew you can’t trust a golddigger.

  2. Jack says:

    seriously, what happened to f*****g mel gibson? he used to be a huge movie star and now he is just a joke.
    don´t like that oksana girl either, she just looks like a gold digger

  3. GatsbyGal says:

    How Christian of him.

  4. normade says:

    OK, girl has had some serious plastic intervention, but gotta admit she does look young for 40

  5. Whatever says:

    I’ve been wondering the same thing, WTF happened to him? That chick is more than a gold digger, I think she is nuts. She’s probably threatening, blackmailing him and using the kid to extort him. He should have known better.

  6. Ro says:

    Maybe Mel was always a mess but back in the 80s and 90s there were less press outlets willing to report on it.

  7. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    He may be low, but she is lower. She is a goldigging tramp, and I would place no validity in anything a jilted goldigger says.

  8. viper says:

    I feel sorry for the guy in all honesty. He’s lost everything, career, family, partner, substance abuse, and there is talk about him getting sued because of his houses. It’s as if everything that can happen to a person is happening to him all at once.

  9. linda k says:

    well…mel has met his match….after all these years of seeing many women, having them sign a confidentiality agreement, he must of forgot to do this with oks….they must of thought they were in love or something….she is one who cannot be easily paid off….she has, supposedly, 3 years of dirt under her nails to release….and he knows it…he should have stayed in his so called marriage and not been so confident and arrogant that he could go on without something coming back on him…he does have the clout to do something about it, but it will only make him look even worse..i would like to be in court on that custody i hear dna test?

  10. a says:

    what’s with these famous guys like mel and tiger not wearing condoms and sleeping with multiple super-high risk folks and expecting no repercussions? why wouldn’t the ladies talk or try to have celebabies and the resulting money?

    @gatsbygal: exactly

  11. bite me says:

    hail mary!

  12. CathyT says:

    Ha ha. My first reaction to this development is schadenfreude. A restraining order puts the nail in the coffin of Oksana’s career in music and golddigging. My second reaction is shock.

    Where were the American tabloids on this story? Every week they write about Brangelina breaking up, but Mel and Oksana split unexpectedly and now, oh boy, Mel got a restraining order and is turning to the courts to decide custody and child support? Oksana must have been very unreasonable for Mel to resort to the courts deciding the level of child support. The funny thing is that Mel has been filming in Mexico until recently, so at most he was asking to see Lucia on weekends.

  13. Alison E says:

    I hope the screwing he’s getting was worth the screwing he was getting.

  14. susieqinBA says:

    NE/Radar online report that it is pertaining to he wants visitation and child custody of the baby. The pic on NE he looks so terrible!!

    Mel drop this baby, you don’t want to have anything to do with this child because of Oksana because she will always be holding this baby over your head. All you are entitled to pay is child support not provide a house for her. Pay child support and get her out of Sherman Oaks, and let her pay for a home and medical insurance and expenses for the kid: that is what child support is for.

  15. linda k says:

    how can someone drop his child? if he is any kind of a man, he wouldn’t let oks stand in his way of having a relationship with his own child? that’s what a lot of deadbeat dads do…he is responsible for this child, not just moneywise….if it is his child…

  16. lucy2 says:

    Well, his life does suck, but it’s all due to choices he made – he wrecked his marriage, he went on a bender that damaged his career, he knocked up a gold digging lunatic, etc. I can’t feel bad for someone who throws all the good stuff away.

  17. Jazz says:

    Mel was probably always a mess but Robyn was there to keep him in check. Robyn ain’t there no more!

  18. viper says:

    I still feel sorry for the dude. You can’t help but pity a guy that screwed up his own life so epicly.

  19. Feebee says:

    A restraining order isn’t going to make her shut up. Maybe it’s the first step to something more elaborate like claiming she’s a little crazy and an unfit mother – not that I can see Mel Gibson wanting to be a single father to a baby at this stage in life.

    I can just imagine these two having great fights like “shut up”, “no, you shut up”, “no you shut up”, “NO YOU SHUT UP”….. maybe he has met his match in that she’s not taking his bullshit and she wants to get paid.

    And I wish the term “illegitimate” when referring to children was seriously retired. All humans are legitimate for a start and I think most of society has moved on from thinking marriage is the be all and end all of family life.

  20. irishserra says:

    Karma? Kismet? Or just the inevitable universal law of action begets consequence?…either way, it’s comin’ around.

  21. Iggles says:

    OK, girl has had some serious plastic intervention, but gotta admit she does look young for 40

    She’s 40?!

    She looks amazing for her age. Though whatever work she’s doing with her lips needs to stop.

  22. CathyT says:

    Viper, it’s even worse for Mel because Oksana’s people are spreading damaging rumors, non-credible though they may be. Someone has been feeding pro-Oksana stories to the Russian press ever since the breakup. At first, sources blamed the split on mean old Robyn and Hannah, because Mel would never dump the lovely Oksana on his own. When Mel was photographed buying baby food in Malibu, the Russian press reported that Mel was reconnecting to Oksana and a reunion was possible. Oksana must be furious now, because “a close friend” told that the anti-Russian press in American hates Oksana and it was Oksana who was granted the restraining order, not the other way around. The reason? Mel BEAT HER. Other sites are reporting that Timothy Dalton also beat her. Someone just started a twitter account called MelGibsonisaLIAR to let everyone know that Oksana filed a restraining order and that Mel beat her. Craziness. Of course there is no word from Radar or TMZ about Oksana’s restraining order. It must be because they love Mel Gibson and hate Russians.

    I feel that Oksana is manipulative and pushed her famewh@#ing and moneygrabbing a little too far. Now she is pissed that Mel scorned her. It is clear that she is not above embellishing the truth. For example, she told Hello she dated Mel for a total of 3 years, even though in the same interview she said that they didn’t start dating until 2 years after his DUI arrest. Only one of those statements can be true.

  23. original kate says:

    he is a has-been and she needs to stop inflating her lips.

  24. viper says:

    Tim had warned Mel as I recall about his ex. Mel made a mistake by being her lover to begin with whatever the outcome is, the damage has already been done.

  25. d says:

    Har. I bet Mel took a good look at Tiger’s situation and is frantically working to pay her to keep her mouth shut. This whole thing is the funniest story ever. Karma, shadenfreude, whatever. It’s just funny to see a horrible man get his comeuppance.

  26. susieqinBA says:

    I had a dream about her last week, Mel was sitting in a recliner and Oks was watching something like a TV. She saw something that reminded her of something Mel said and she stood up behind Mel and started telling everybody and she asked for people to pray for her (she is wanting sympathy and to prey on people’s sympathy). I said, “she’s lying, don’t listen to her, she’s a liar!”

    I had dreamed before about her telling everybody about something Mel did and later after their breakup the report in NE showed up about the porn queen (but I don’t believe that happened when she said it did or the way she made it out to be).

    She is unyielding, DEMANDING (Hello mag should see they printed lies about her!)and that is why I say Mel, get her out of Sherman Oaks, pay only child support and let HER pay the expenses and provide a house for the baby; maybe she’ll go back to Russia and keep her mouth shut.

    It would be best for Mel and the baby because Oksana will ALWAYS BE THERE WANTING TO EXPOSE SOMETHING as long as Mel wants any contact with the kid. Mel is not being a deadbeat dad, Oksana is being an evil terrible mother and the kid who will suffer emotionally.

  27. FedUp says:

    When will these skanks learn that if he will do it with you then he will do it ON you???

  28. LindaR says:

    I had a dream that I was on top of Mel Gibson as he lay in a recliner, but his breath was really bad and I thought wow, bad breath, maybe a tsunami is coming and then he said quick get off me here comes Oksana. Then I had a dream that President Obama was on top of me and I was all ick, get off of me, then I thought wow Oksana, Obama, they both begin with O. Omygod what does it all mean?

  29. susieqinBA says:

    Yeah, I set myself up for that one, didn’t I!
    I was trying to delete all of that but it didn’t save. So, I have to say, “ooooops!”

  30. skibunny says:

    she has “crazy” eyes

  31. prissa says:

    LOLOLOLOL @ LindaR
    Too funny!!

  32. sapphire says:

    You know I have to disagree-I don’t think a restraining order can be used in violation of the First Amendment! What I do think is she’s crazy and is doesn’t know when to get off the train. Mel’s got it coming, no question, but the guy can afford serious legal muscle.

  33. Tia C says:

    I don’t feel sorry for him. He has only himself to blame. He created his own mess. We all do!

  34. bellaluna says:

    She looks like Octo-Psycho in that bottom pic.

  35. Jeri says:

    Mel deserves whatever she dishes out. He left his wife & family (although they’re probably heaving a big “at last” sigh).

    He does not treat others w/respect so why should his shit be overlooked. They deserve each other.

    Her nose does look different & not better.

  36. LindaR says:

    @susieqinBA: I think you are adorable. I am only teasing you. Post away about your dreams and predictions. It’s what we do here.

  37. susieqinBA says:

    Thank you LindaR, I appreciate that!

  38. @ LindaR & susieqinBA Super cute, you two. I like seeing fans be nice to one another. There are some jerks on TMZ that ruin it all!!
