Maybe Mel should get together with Maxx.
 :-X


Between Mel and Maxx, I think Mel got it worse. To some degree even minor, the damage to Mel's career is already done.

This forum can use a guy like Mel Gibson. We can help him learn to identify sincere RW and we'll only charge him half, 5 million, of what Oksana is charging.

Quote from: Seriouslyjaded
Dude, this is a guy that pretends to be a devout catholic and yet he has behaves appallingly by most people's standards.


Most people act their worst when their relationship is breaking up. Take that into account plus the fact Oksana is trying to take his child away from him forever, trying to extort money, and now destroying his career and public image.

If I took some of the worst things a person said in life and put it out in public and taken away their child, I'd expect some profanity and physical violence from them. That's in human nature. Mel is human.

If I had a daughter, I would not want her to marry a guy like Mel based on what I heard but I also understand I have not seen the big picture of Mel's whole life. In court judges take into an account a defendent's past behavior. If Mel lived a life free of DV and given generously to church and charity to feed the hungry and cure diseases, then it's possible he is being a good Christian and law abiding citizen more than 99% of the time but if he breaks a law and commit a crime such as DV, he will pay for it. As Brad mentioned, a judge ruled yesterday that Mel is not a danger to his daughter.

Have you every felt yourself acting? That is acting in a melodramatic fashion to make some point? Perhaps years and years ago when you were young and foolish? Stupid I know. I think that is what Mel was doing when confronting Oksana. He just decided "I'm going to act like an idiot now and blow off some steam". I mean listen to that panting. It sounds so phoney. And Oksana knows that Mel turns into a drama king when this and that is said and has the tape recorder ready for his next performance. Then during normal times he thinks and acts quite normal despite having some odd world views. 

Mel's next project should be the telling of the USS Liberty incident in 1967. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3319663041501647311#

If a film is good folks will ignore who is behind it.

Those with half a mind will figure out for themselves what is happening. IMHO we've all Ben there one time or another.

In 6 months it will blow over.

I was curious about how the story ended and found out Mel and Oksana settled for 15 million dollars and because Oksana opened her mouth twice breaking their agreements, she only ended up with $250,000. Her mouth costed her $14.75 million dollars. She should've bitten her tongue.

I'd forgotten about this case - but it seems 'BE-zarre' that a civil Court can suspend a 'settlement' made not to talk about a former partners violence - which he avoided jail time for.

In retrospect if she'd divorced him in (say) the UK - he'd probably have been lucky to keep 40 percent and had to move out of the family home.

There's no mention of the child maintenance .. but then the article IS from a sensationalist scandal rag ...

Gibson pays substantial child support off his estimated $425 Million fortune.  Oksana has also been to court, repeatedly, and now gets about $100,000 a month to keep her in a better lifestyle, but of course, not the one she wants.

Hmm thanks, Jone

I believe the clue in the word child (support maintenance ) is supposed to be what the money is used for.

If Mama is spending it on herself - then Mr Gibson should seek a reduction - or ensure the Court's permission that a substantial portion goes into a trust  fund for the child .

In the meantime, Mr G doesn't appear to be covering himself in any glory - any more than his ( possibly ) avaricious ex-partner and Ma of his child

It was proven that she had doctored some tapes (though what he did say was racist, and he did threaten to beat her) and that her "bruises" were faked.


The settlement had a provision that reduced the payment, and the court just enforced that.

They were never legally married.

Courts here don't look at it like that.  She can spend it on whatever she wants for herself and the child - the money is hers, to use as she sees fit.  However, it was reported Gibson was paying her just under $30,000 a month, not the $100,000 she was asking for.

True. I think Mel just paid her to prevent further damage to his career. Bad publicity hurts even if it's not all true. Oksana broke the terms of the agreement and it cost her millions.
