Oksana Grigorieva Files Bankruptcy: Mel Gibson’s Baby Momma
Published By: Tara ClemFebruary 20, 2014
Multi millionaire Mel Gibson can’t be too proud to know that his baby momma, Oksana Grigorieva, just filed bankruptcy. Mel and Oksana have a daughter together, 4 year old Lucia, and had a very ugly and public custody battle, where Oksana played recordings of the outraged Mel Gibson screaming obscentities and threats at her. Well, a few years after the drama settled, it looks like Oksana really did get the short end of the stick, because she claims she has $10 left to her name. Has to be a bit humiliating for a Hollywood heavy hitter like Mel Gibson when Oksana Grigorieva files bankruptcy. Will he step up and help out his baby momma?
In new legal docs — obtained by TMZ, Oksana says things are so bad she only has $10 in cash to her name. The breakdown of her paperwork goes like this: $48,000 in assets, $438,000 in debts. And as far as Oksana’s expenses … she spends $90 a month on “Gofer Patrol.” BTW … her home security is less … $80 a month. Oksana, who is a lounge singer, claims in the last 6 months she’s only received $200 in royalties. She also lists works of art she painted at $500.
And as far as her debts go, they are from legal bills. Oksana owes 5 lawyers a quarter-of-a-million bucks from the custody battle with good old Maniac Mel. But because Oksana Grigorieva files bankruptcy, she may be forgiven of these legal debts, and the lawyers might not get paid. Unless Mel steps up.
As far as what Mel had to pay her during their custody battle, the outcome was that he agreed to pay Oksana a $750K settlement in installments — the last being due in 2016.
According to the court docs, Mel pays her $20,000 a month in child support for Lucia, and actor Timothy Dalton pays her $2,500 a month for their son, Alexander.
But his would never had gotten this bad, and Oksana Grigorieva files bankruptcy could have possibly been avoided because at one time, Mel Gibson offered Oksana $15 million to settle during the custody battle. She refused, thinking that the damaging recordings would be worse for him. Unfortunately not so much….stay tuned.
