Oksana Grigorieva gets $20k in child support per month from Mel Gibson




TMZ reports Oksana Grigorieva scored big in a court hearing over child support late Thursday, getting a bump to $20,000 per month from Mel Gibson. Remember that the next time you're praying for a tax holiday to buy your kids school supplies.

Judge Scott Gordon issued an order increasing the payment from the previous $5,000 a month, which seemed more than reasonable to us. Of course, Oksana argued 11-month-old Lucia needed as much as $60,000 every 30 days, since the baby required round-the-clock security, and hey, Mel promised to take care of his kid. Besides, Oksana got used to living like Mel's girl, and now has about $100,000 in legal expenses and other debt to deal with. Besides, babies are just plain expensive.

Now the question remains, are her allegations of abuse by Mel just part of a grand scheme to get money out of him? TMZ reported that she had accused previous partnet Timothy Dalton of abuse, but now both parties deny that. Either way, when $20,000 per month in child support is considered disappointing, you've got pretty unrealistic expectations in life.
