Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva reach settlement

Posted on

Mel Gibson and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have reached a financial and child custody settlement after a highly public battle that lasted over a year, reports the Associated Press. Details of the settlement have not been announced; final terms for both a monetary agreement and custody of the couple’s nearly two-year-old daughter will be handled in closed hearings.

Last March, Gibson pled no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an alleged incident with Grigorieva in 2010. Two months later, Grigorieva reportedly dropped her domestic violence claim in her court battle for custody of their daughter.

Terms of Gibson’s divorce from his wife of 31 years, Robyn Gibson, were finalized in June; that split should be complete next week.
