Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva reach legal settlement

After a long, bitter battle, Mel Gibson and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have reached a financial and custody settlement, CNN confirms.

The couple’s daughter Lucia was born in October 2009. By April 2010, they made their separation public.

After a January 2010 fight with Grigorieva, Gibson was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. He pleaded no contest earlier this year. The case blew up after racist and sexist rants by Gibson were recorded and leaked to

Since their breakup, Gibson and Grigorieva have been battling in court, but a rep for Gibson tells CNN their legal problems have been worked out: "I can confirm that the parties have settled and we appreciate all the judge’s help."

The financial terms and conditions of the settlement will be decided at a hearing on Wednesday, according to a statement from Los Angeles Superior Court. Custody issues regarding baby Lucia will be heard in a closed session.

To add to Mel’s messy legal issues, Robyn Gibson, the star’s wife of 28 years, filed for divorce in April 2009, just months before Grigorieva gave birth. The Gibsons recently reached a divorce settlement.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mel’s attorney announced that the case should be finalized by Tuesday. Gibson and Robyn have seven children together.

    @who gives a d*mn..hun I'm not a baby boomer and I just trolled on ur a$z before. I go under another name and you couldn't even figure that out and yes I am a woman. You were wrong both times. You should have respect for older people and don't call them names. How would you feel if someone was to talk to your parents that way...just saying.

      Mel Gibson really should know better... I have to agree with what W. Anton says in his book, The Manual: What Women Want and How to Give It to Them, that: the most important financial decision a man can make is learn WHAT women are attracted to and HOW to date them. And it's so true. Most guys think long and hard before spending large sums of money on cars or houses etc and work hard and save up for decades only to WASTE tons of it during dating and then losing half of it all by marrying the wrong woman and having to pay her out in a divorce.
