The dueling duo, Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, are at it again. Today on Gibson’s 55th birthday, his former mistress is facing depositions for what appear to be a grueling week in court. In preparation, she is battling the system to try to get a famous attorney to be able to represent her in California, RadarOnline reports.
“Oksana Grigorieva faces up to three grueling interrogations this week alone, and the first of what are expected to be marathon depositions will ironically fall on Mel Gibson’s 55th birthday Monday . . .
“Oksana spent the weekend preparing for what will be a significant week for her,” a source close to the case told RadarOnline.com.
“She is scheduled to be deposed as many as three times this week.”
Said the insider: “It will be critical to the case.” RadarOnline.com
Additionally they reported: “Oksana Grigorieva is going to court on Monday morning in a bid to have her famed first amendment lawyer Martin Garbus admitted to practice law in California, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
“Garbus, the defense attorney in the Pentagon Papers, has been unable to formally represent his client in the bitter custody battle with Hollywood actor Mel Gibson.”
Mel Gibson’s former wife, stands by her man
As I reported in July, in a rather unusual turn of events, Mel Gibson’s ex-wife, who divorced him when she learned that he had fathered a child with girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, is defending him in his current custody battle.
Suddenly a series of angry tapes has been made public. Just how they were made and then leaked to the press is still a mystery. However, this is what People magazine is reporting:
“Mel Gibson’s estranged wife is defending him against allegations he hit former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva while she held their 9-month-old baby.
Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage,” Robyn Gibson said in a declaration to a Los Angeles judge overseeing the custody battle between Gibson and Grigorieva. “Mel was a wonderful and loving father.”
In what has been a bit of a custody mess, Gibson seems to have the upper hand in that Oksana has taken her case to the public, in violation of the Judge’s orders.
