Mel Gibson’s estranged ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva is lashing out at the actor and his lawyer for claiming Mel has been generous in supporting their baby.
Oksana’s lawyer, Marci Levine, says to the contrary, “The statement released to TMZ on behalf of Mel Gibson is based upon complete distortions of the truth.”
Regarding Mr. Gibson’s financial contributions toward the parties’ child, Levine says he “conveniently ignores obligations to the child under California law.”
He’s accused of closing his fist and punching her in the face, but Mel’s lawyer, Stephen Kolodny says Mel has opened up his wallet for Oksana Grigorieva.
Gibson put her up in a multi-million dollar house, bought her a car, provided health insurance and gave her “tens of thousands of dollars,” says his attorney.
WAR OF WORDS: Mel and Oksana are in a heated one.
Levine would not specifically say how Mel has fallen short, but Oksana sources are claiming the actor has not paid child support since they split this spring.
She says, “Mr. Gibson persists in attempting to ‘litigate’ this matter in the media, and continues to launch false accusations against the mother of his child.”
“Unlike Mr. Gibson, Ms. Grigorieva has not, and will not engage in undignified banter in the press,” Levine adds, echoing similar accusations from Mel’s side.
Mel’s violent behavior has also been a topic of debate between the warring parties, with Oksana claiming he knocked her teeth out and Mel denying that.
She did see a dentist the day of an alleged encounter with Mel, but who knows what was to blame for what she needed done, or what the work consisted of.
