Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva Back Behind Closed Courtroom Doors

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Mel Gibson and his ex, Oksana Grigorieva, are back behind closed doors Monday at a downtown Los Angeles courtroom for the second time in less than two weeks in their increasingly bitter custody battle over their 12-month-old daughter, Lucia.

The 54-year-old actor was escorted into court by sheriff’s deputies for the session before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon.

The couple now shares custody of their daughter, with Gibson seeing her every other day and providing a nanny to help care for the child during overnight visits, according to reports.

Grigorieva claims she was subjected to verbal and physical abuse at Gibson’s hands. He says she tried to extort millions from him in return for phone recordings she made after their relationship ended in April.

    Sorry, but I have no sympathy for this woman, she is an obvious golddigger who should be investigated for all of the leaks that have taken place and keep happening. As a woman who spent 3 years married to a very abusive/violent man I usually can spot the frauds, and much of this womans actins just have never felt right to me. Gibson has his problems, but it does amaze me that he was married to 1 woman for all those years and helped raise 10 children and based on their sworn testimony never laid a hand on them. And if he had this was the perfect time for them to announce it. This woman should be keeping her mouth shut like Gibson and his legal team has since this involves an infant. Instead she can’t keep her mouth shut or the stories from getting bigger and biggger. Oh, and I like how the original pictures released by her dentist/doctor showed no horrible cuts, bruises or broken teeth, yet this past week it was released again with massive damage. Isn’t photoshop a wonderful application…
