Will Judge Order Mel Gibson to Seek Therapy?

by at . Comments

Will the judge in Mel Gibson's custody case order the troubled actor to seek therapy today? It may well happen if Oksana Grigorieva has her way.

Oksana's lawyers will ask the custody judge to order Gibson into therapy for "anger issues" when both square off in court over baby Lucia today.

Sources say Oksana's team wants to deny Mel overnight visitation until a psychiatrist determines Mel is safe to be around his one-year-old girl.

Lawyers have been trying to hunt down other women they say Mel cheated on Oksana with, in hopes that they will corroborate her allegations of abuse.

So far, Judge Scott Gordon has been unmoved by Oksana's objections, allowing Mel visitation and overnights the couple agreed to during a May mediation.

Oksana's legal team will also challenge that very mediation agreement today, arguing that she signed it under duress. She later disavowed the whole thing.

She was to have turned over the tapes of Gibson's rants in exchange for an enormous financial settlement, but backed out of the deal at the last minute.

This is likely she apparently felt she could finagle more cash by going this route. Not sure that's going to work out for her in the end, but we'll find out.

As for the visitation question, remember that Mel's wife Robyn submitted a sworn declaration saying Mel never in any way abused her or their kids.

If all the judge has to go on is Oksana's allegations, and her credibility is called into question repeatedly, we don't see Mel ordered into therapy.

We'll update you as soon as we learn more.
