Okay, so the “amicable split” between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva took a decidedly unfriendly turn yesterday with each one obtaining restraining orders against the other. According to People, this all erupted over visitation disputes with their daughter, seven-month-old Lucia. Oksana reportedly kept Lucia from spending Father’s Day with Mel, according to a “source.”
“He was as frustrated as any father would be when they’re kept away from their child,” says a second Gibson source. “He was with all his kids and family and the one person missing was Lucia. Oksana is not putting the interest of their daughter first.”
This source also claims the alleged domestic violence incident that occurred in January was also over Lucia.
“Oksana was completely out of control that day, screaming, and shaking Lucia like a ragdoll,” says the source. “Mel stepped in to stop her from injuring the baby.”
Adds the first Gibson source: “The allegation that Oksana is in fear of Mel is ridiculous. From January to March, she traveled with Mel to London and Paris at her insistence. This is all an attempt to gain financial advantage over him.”
I wasn’t there, so I don’t know what happened, and I’m sure there’s plenty of blame to go around, but I have to say, this sounds like a whole lot of SPIN.
It’s unfortunate that things have gotten so ugly (to the point where they’re battling it out in the press) since there IS a child involved. Hopefully things will settle down.
