In a shocking move, Oksana Grigorieva dropped her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson at a court hearing today in the couple’s custody case.
Last month, Mel pleaded no contest to battery, ending that chapter of the pair’s legal circus. But the battle for custody of Lucia, 1, remains unresolved.
In fact, it’s been so contentious that today’s move came out of left field, as Oksana actually extended an olive branch in an attempt to settle the case.

In a new interview with Deadline Hollywood, Mel Gibson has finally broken his silence over the infamous tapes of him berating Oksana Grigorieva last year.
While shrugging off criticism, he takes responsibility for his behavior.

- An order awarding Oksana sole custody of their daughter, Lucia, 1.

The L.A. County District Attorney filed a single misdemeanor battery charge against Mel Gibson today. The actor, as expected, pleaded no contest.
The misdemeanor specifically targets someone who cohabits or has a child with the alleged victim, but is less severe than felony domestic abuse.
Mel will not receive jail time for the alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, but will continue to undergo counseling and be on 36 months’ probation.
One of the terms of probation – he cannot use violence against anyone. Mel may continue to have “peaceful contact” with Oksana going forward.

At this point, does Mel simply want it all to go away?
