Mel Gibson - Mel Gibson's Ex Loses Settlement After Violating Gag Order
Grigorieva and Gibson became embroiled in a heated custody battle in 2011 which eventually resulted in the Lethal Weapon star agreeing to pay her $750,000 (£484,000) in instalments until 2016.
On Wednesday (19Feb14) editors at Tmz.com reported that the Russian songwriter had filed for bankruptcy and now the website's writers claim the settlement agreement has also been revoked after she violated a gag order preventing her from discussing her time with the actor.
Court sources tell the website the violation relates to an interview Grigorieva gave with radio shock-jock Howard Stern in October (13), during which she described her relationship with Gibson as "painful and dark".
Her comments were allegedly enough for a judge to rule that she had violated the order, which prevents her from discussing her life with the actor, and she will not receive the remaining instalments of her settlement, which are said to amount to $375,000 (£234,375).
