Mel Gibson's Lawyer Hits Out

Mel Gibson's lawyer has blasted Oksana Grigoreiva for "making sensational allegations".

Stephen Kolodny claims the Russian singer - who filed for a restraining order against the actor last week, allegedly saying he is "extremely violent" - only went to court because she regrets agreeing to share equal custody of their eight-month-old daughter Lucia.

Stephen said: "Having entered into an agreement that allows for overnight, unrestricted visitation, and would soon result in Mel having 50/50 custody of their daughter an agreement reached after a two-day mediation with two retired Superior Court judges, Mel was hopeful their break-up was behind them and Lucia would be the beneficiary of co-operative parenting. Apparently Lucia will be denied that good fortune. Making sensational allegations is not the way to resolve this.

"Mel wants a custody settlement or a resolution in court, not the media."

After seeking the order last Monday (21.06.10) - which barred 54-year-old Mel from any contact with Oksana or Lucia - the actor's lawyers returned to court the following day to have it modified so he could see his child.

Stephen claims the court's agreement to alter the order contradicts Oksana's claims the baby would be in danger with her father.

He added to gossip website TMZ: "Oksana's deceitful conduct in trying to terminate Mel's access to his daughter continues."
