Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva will go face to face in a courtroom custody hearing over their 1-year-old daughter Lucia.
When the couple split in April, their two-year relationship turned into a dirty circus with both of them throwing angry accusations to one another, with Grigorieva alleging domestic violence, while Gibson claiming extortion. Mel was further put under fire when tapes of the actor emotionally and physically abusing Griegorieva were published. Despite these accusations, no criminal charges have been filed against either Grigorieva or Gibson.
Gibson and Grigorieva currently share custody of their daughter – Gibson is allowed to see her 3 days a week with 1 overnight visit. However, Grigorieva’s team is planning to remove overnights into the deal, claiming Gibson is not fit for overnight visits because Mel’s nanny is the primary caregiver when Lucia sleeps over Mel’s house.
The closed-door hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Superior Court in Los Angeles.
