Mel Gibson files restraining order against ex
Mel Gibson has reportedly filed a restraining order against the mother of his baby daughter.
The ‘Braveheart’ star split from girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva in April and even though the couple insisted the break-up was amicable at the time, Mel has now lodged paperwork at the Los Angeles Superior Court to keep Oksana away from him.
Although the case is now sealed, it is thought the claim centres around three issues as well as Mel’s access to eight-month-old Lucia.
Website RadarOnline.com claims he has filed a temporary restraining order, a notice about a forthcoming court hearing and a notice of visitation rights and child custody.
Following their split, Oksana claimed the pair would continue to be doting parents to their little girl but hinted there was more behind the separation than had been revealed.
She said: “I can tell you that we have split up, suddenly and recently. Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon.
“Here is the official version - we split up by mutual consent and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home.”
Mel has seven children with estranged wife Robyn, who filed for divorce last May.
Following the legal proceedings, it emerged the couple had been separated for years and the actor was in a relationship with Oksana, who has a 12-year-old son Alexander with ex-boyfriend Timothy Dalton.
