Gibson's Girlfriend Sues Photographer Over Lingerie Shoot
MEL GIBSON's girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA is suing a man who sold snaps of the model's lingerie shoot without her permission.
The singer/former model filed suit against Samuel Oriti on Tuesday (25Aug09) at a Los Angeles court claiming the photographer agreed not to distribute the images to anyone outside of the lingerie company she believed she was modelling for.
The shoot took place in 2004, with Oriti claiming he was in the middle of agreeing a deal with a well-known underwear retailer. Grigorieva agreed to do the shoot for the company on the strength of the snapper's reputation, according to Radaronline.com.
However, despite reportedly agreeing not to distribute the sexy snaps, Oriti allegedly sold them after Grigorieva became well-known as Gibson's new lover.
