Mel Gibson to launch a bid for sole custody of his daughter with Oksana Grigorieva
This is hardly a big surprise: Mel Gibson has moved to strip Oksana Grigorieva of custody of their infant daughter Lucia Gibson. Says TMZ:
According to the documents, in addition to attempting to take custody away from Oksana Grigorieva, Mel’s lawyers will ask Judge Scott Gordon to award her visitation, but only with a monitor. And Mel’s lawyers want the judge to deny Oksana any overnight visits with the baby.
Mel’s lawyers argue in the documents that Oksana’s false and derogatory statements to the media about Mel and the attempt to sully his character show she is not acting in the best interests of Lucia. Oksana trashed Mel last night on “Larry King Live.”
As TMZ first reported, Judge Gordon has warned Oksana she could lose custody if she talked to the media.
It is hardly likely that the judge will grant Mel’s request, unless there is more information about Oksana that has not been divulged in the press. Oksana may not be perfect, but the idea that a judge will find that Mel is the most suited of the two of them for sole custody is almost laughable given the existence of those tapes. Unless he has the judge in his pocket, which, of course, is not unlikely.
