Mel Gibson: 6K Child Support Drama

As Mel Gibson struggles to recover from the disastrous wreckage of his relationship with his baby's mother, new details have emerged about their negotiations for a child support agreement.

According to sources, Gibson hopes that he will be paying 6k a month in child support, in the agreement he has reached with Oksana Grigorieva, who has made Gibson's reputation plummet with the leak of tapes she recorded, that show him hatefully abusing her with many shocking epithets.

For someone who makes as much money as Gibson, the $6,000 is taken by many as a shockingly low figure, and one that may be hotly contested by divorce lawyers, It remains to be seen whether this will stand up in court.

Mel Gibson reportedly wants to pay just $6,000 a month in child support. Lawyers for the 'Braveheart' actor are said to have told a judge overseeing his bitter custody battle with former lover Oksana Grigorieva - the mother of his nine-month-old daughter Lucia - that the 54-year-old star spends a staggering $7.2 million a year on himself but he does not want to increase payments for his daughter. According to, Mel's lawyers insist some of Oksana's requests - such as he pays for bodyguards - are unnecessary as Lucia is still just a baby. In contrast, they argue the money he spends on himself is necessary for his living expenses and doesn't include luxuries such as his private jet.
