The mother of Actor Mel Gibson’s six-year-old daughter is reportedly demanding a massive 400 percent increase in monthly child support payments.

According to TMZ, Russian-born Oksana Grigorieva has asked a judge to increase the 60-year-old actor’s monthly payments from $US20,000 to more than $US100,000 a month.

Oksana, a pianist, says she needs more than $US10,000 a month for security for Lucia.  She did not elaborate how six-year-old Lucia is at risk.  TMZ also claims the 46-year-old is seeking an increase in payment to maintain her lavish lifestyle.

The estranged couple is reportedly set to go to trial over the demands.

Oksana and Mel parted ways in 2010 after Oksana accused the star of attacking her at their Malibu home. Mel eventually pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour battery charge.

“At the time when it happened to me I was afraid to ask for help, in the grip of blinding fear,” Oksana told RadarOnline.com in 2013.  “I wished I had had someone’s help at that time. But I didn’t. Often, the victims of domestic violence are made to feel as if it was their fault, when it was not.”

  • This does seem rather excessive, even by Hollywood standards.


  • $100,000 a month is ridiculous. The current $20,000 is even ridiculous for a mere mortal like myself. I wonder what the Hollywood set think of this. Their values and standard of living are very different from ours. This amount of money may be loose change for them.


  • How ridiculous. The money is supposed to cover the costs of the child


  • I hope she is putting a good portion of that money in a trust fund of some type for her daughter. If the Mum needs so much to live on he should be accountable for her luxurious spending. No wonder some Dads give up working if they are being ripped off. I reckon he is more likely to have an account for Lucia. I know one “ordinary” Mum who complained she had no money even thought was getting supporting Mothers Benefit and her husband was paying all of the mortgate in leui of child support. !/2 The mortage payment was more than the Child Support amount he would have given her. Her kids complained that there was more alcohol in the fridge than there was food. It meant that a large portion of Mothers Support Pension was being spent on Alcohol and cigarettes. The grandparents supplied most of the childrens’ clothes at one stage or they went to their place with minimal clothing on even in Winter.


  • $10,000 a MONTH??????????!!!!!!!!!! Millions of people receive that per YEAR, and they don’t complain! WTF, PEOPLE?!


  • 100 thousand dollars a month??? What does she have to do with all that money??? I find it quite absurd!!


  • Lke nh


  • Mel, Mel, Mel, what were you thinking getting involved with this woman?


  • Seriously 100k is outrageous.
