After months battling it out over custody and financial disagreements, Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva have appeared in court to confront their troubles.
The Oscar-winning actor has been ordered to pay three months worth of back child support totalling $60,000 to his ex.
Mel had refused to pay the monthly $20,000 until he could have a judge clarify whether he was allowed to deduct the $6,000 a month he is already paying for the home where Oksana lives with their daughter and her mother.
The judge has declared that the child support is separate from the rent and so ordered the 54-year-old actor to pay in full.
Oksana’s lawyers are also asking the court to end baby Lucia's overnight visits with Mel claiming that his ex-girlfriend is worried about his temper.
