Mel Gibson has filed for a restraining order against Oksana Grigorieva, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his eighth child (but not the first seven, whose mother he was married to when he knocked Oksana up, like all upstanding folks do).
The actor filed the paperwork under seal at the Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday. The plaintiff is listed as Mel Gibson and the defendant is Oksana Grigorieva.
Grigorieva was served the documents at her home. The case is sealed, meaning the documents cannot be released to the public, but reports say the complaint centers around three issues and Gibson's access to daughter Lucia.
Mel and Oksana in happier, home-wrecking times.
Mel Gibson filed for a temporary restraining order, a notice about a forthcoming court hearing as well as a notice of visitation rights and child custody.
He and Oksana Grigorieva, a Russian musician-singer, split in April after over a year of dating. Their split was described as amicable ... at that time.
However, she later 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."
Mel has been accused of an affair with Polish porn star Violet Kowal, but it's quite unclear if that actually happened or played a role in this breakup.
Last year, Gibson's wife Robyn filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage, right around when Mel and Grigorieva conceived their child together.
