Oksana Grigorieva (remember her?!) feels she was hosed by her own lawyers in her infamous feud with Mel Gibson, ending up in a terrible custody agreement.
She’s now suing them.
In court papers, Oksana accuses Ron Litz and Daniel Horowitz of negligently advising her to sign off on a bad deal back in 2011. Why was the deal so bad?
Allegdly, it forbids her from pursuing any future legal action against Mel regarding their child without jeopardizing the settlement she made with the actor.

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.

Violet Kowal, the woman who claims she was Mel Gibson’s piece on the side while he was dating Oksana Grigorieva, has nothing but positive things to say.
That’s good at least.
Mel’s alleged mistress, to whom he was allegedly putting it while still together with Oksana, swears Mel is not only a nice guy, but a very tolerant one.
“Violent, racist, anti-Semitic? Are you serious? When I was around Mel, he never once made any racist or derogatory comments about anyone,” she says.

If would appear that Mel Gibson’s no contest plea to battery did not satiate Oksana Grigorieva’s unrequited thirst for CA$H justice even a little bit.
Lawyers for Mel’s baby mama are going after Gibson in their ongoing custody fight / family law case, asking for a hearing on whether Mel hit her.
Specifically, Oksana Grigorieva wants the court to …
- An order awarding Oksana sole custody of their daughter, Lucia, 1.
- An order forcing a shrink to determine Mel’s mental state (seriously).
- A hearing to determine if Mel hit Oksana (a no contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt, and he has denied
Coinciding with Mel Gibson pleading no contest to battery, the case against the mother of his child (and his domestic abuse accuser) is also ending.
The extortion investigation of Oksana Grigorieva has been officially rejected by the Los Angeles County D.A.’s Office, according to Radar Online.
The battery charge against Mel will officially be filed on Friday, at which point Mel will plead no contest and be sentenced. He will not go to jail.

Mel Gibson tore Oksana Grigorieva a new one in a series of epic rants.
Now he’s torn over how to proceed when he’s charged with a crime.
Sources connected to Mel say he knows he will be charged, but is agonizing over the prospect of putting his family through a long, public trial.
At this point, does Mel simply want it all to go away?
Because Mel feels he will face only a low-level misdemeanor charge, the actor may be able to take a lighter sentence if he simply pleads guilty.
Even though he feels he’s innocent, he’s not sure he has the stomach to endure a year-long legal fight and theMore >
Report says Mel Gibson will face domestic violence charges while Oksana Grigorieva will not be charged with extortion
[HMG Celebrity News] – After one of the longest and most deliberately public feuds in recent memory sources say Mel Gibson is about to be charged with domestic violence for allegedly assaulting former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. But she will not be charged with trying to extort him.
Insiders close to the case tell TMZ those in charge of the investigation at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office are about to charge Mel with ‘Misdemeanor Domestic Violence,’ not a felony as was expected. If found guilty Mel could spend up to six months in jail.
But despite significant evidence which provesMore >
Mel Gibson will likely face domestic violence charges stemming from an alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, while she will not be charged with extortion.
That’s according to a TMZ report that is careful to note that this decision has not officially been reached. However, it looks like the D.A. is leaning this way.
Officials feel there’s enough evidence to prosecute the actor, but not to prove beyond a doubt that Oksana tried to extort him using the Mel Gibson tapes.
The turning point for the D.A., sources say, is that prior to being accused of violence, Mel admitted slapping Oksana in theMore >
Mel Gibson isn’t nearly as worried about being charged with domestic violence as he is about his baby mama NOT being charged with extortion, TMZ reports.
Either Mel believes he won’t face a domestic violence charge or he just feels that strongly Oksana Grigorieva tried to bilk him, but that’s where his mind is.
He believes there is more than enough evidence to prove Oksana used the explosive Mel Gibson rants as leverage to score a $15 million payday last May.

According to reports, Grigorieva told a lawyer that Dalton will testify against Gibson in their case, revealing potentially damning evidence against the actor.
In the battery and extortion investigations into Gibson and Grigorieva, she alleges he punched her and that “Tim” saw a bruise on her left eye after the fact.
“Tim saw a bruise on my left eye as well as Mady,” Oksana said, referring also to her facialist and Dalton, the fatherMore >

Oksana Grigorieva’s ex-bodyguard Kristian Herzog has had some rough things to say about Mel Gibson in the past … like how Mel wanted him dead.
Now, though, the guy who likely knows the most about Oksana’s claims against Mel says she’s exaggerating or downright lying about violence.
Herzog, who served as her bodyguard until recently, and who may or may not have nailed Oksana, says she admitted to him Mel never punched her.
Rather, Herzog says Oksana told him Mel slapped her. That’s it. Gibson admits slapping Oksana, claiming he was trying to protect daughter Lucia.

The L.A. District Attorney granted Gibson’s lawyer, Blair Berk, a last-ditch meeting late Tuesday, as she sought to persuade authorities against it.
Deputy D.A. John Lynch met with Berk at the courthouse for close to two hours, but reports suggest charges against Mel are almost inevitable.

Accused of bribing a witness by Mel Gibson’s legal team, Oksana Grigorieva says she couldn’t bribe anybody if she wanted too … she couldn’t pay for it.
Oksana has categorically denied the claim alleged by Mel’s attorneys (via Radar Online) that she tried to bribe a witness in her legal battle with Gibson.
Said her spokesman: “The suggestion is false. She never bribed anyone. She understands the law and has excellent counsel. Besides, she is broke.”
We wouldn’t put it past her, but she does have a point.
