Grigorieva's Lawyer: 'Gibson Is A Deadbeat Dad'

A lawyer for MEL GIBSON's ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA has branded the troubled actor a "deadbeat dad", accusing him of falling behind on child support payments.
The Braveheart star is locked in a bitter custody battle with Russian singer Grigorieva over the care of their baby daughter Lucia, following their split earlier this year (10).
Grigorieva headed to a Los Angeles court on Friday (15Oct10), when her lawyer Lisa Bloom requested a judge order Gibson to hand over $250,000 (£166,670) to cover his ex's legal fees.
Reports suggest the actor is querying the amount and the judge set a hearing for 10 November (10) to discuss the cost.
But that's not Gibson's only financial problem - according to Bloom, the Hollywood star owes Grigorieva child support money too.
The singer won an increase in payments for little Lucia in August (10), after a judge demanded Gibson boost the $5,000 (£3,330) monthly installments to $20,000 (£13,330) to cover the baby's expenses.
But, after the court appearance on Friday, Bloom told TMZ.com Gibson was a "deadbeat dad" for failing to stay on top of his commitments.
