Oksana to Mel: You're in Contempt, Deadbeat!

by at . Comments

Oksana Grigorieva claims that Mel Gibson is in contempt of court by not coughing up more child support. He could be facing jail time if a judge agrees.

The Russian musician’s legal team filed the legal motion Thursday, asking a Los Angeles judge to order him to pay $20,000 a month in child support.

The couple shares a daughter, Lucia, who turns one tomorrow. Mel is not allowed to see her on her birthday. Now Oksana would like him in jail, too.

If found guilty at a November 10 hearing, Mel could be jailed.

“For three consecutive months, Mel paid Oksana between $5,000 and $10,000 each month, it varies, but either way, it is well short of what a judge instructed he must deliver the mother of his child," says a source close to the case.

Her now-ex-lawyer Lisa Bloom said last month that “Mel Gibson is a deadbeat dad at this point” for not complying with an order to pay Oksana $20,000 a month.

Why not just pay it?

For his part, Me has been refusing to write the full check until the judge rules on a dispute over the Sherman Oaks home he owns and Oksana and Lucia live in.

Mel wants $6,000 deducted from the monthly figure for rent.

In any case, Mel is being deposed in the couple's custody battle next week. He will not be asked about domestic violence against Oksana, or the alleged extortion she committed against him, both of which are being investigated separately.

Just when you think this can't get any uglier.
