Mel Gibson Requests Observer During Visits With Daughter


As the custody battle continues between Mel Gibson and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva over their daughter, Lucia, the actor is pulling out all the stops to make sure he gets what he wants.

Gibson was granted the opportunity to have unsupervised visits with his nine-month-old daughter, but requested an unbiased “observer” to attend instead. A source said Gibson requested this extra person during the visits so that “Oksana couldn’t lie” about Gibson’s interactions with his daughter.

The Department of Children and Family Services approved the selected observer, who, according to, has family law-related credentials. Gibson and Lucia spent time together this weekend at Gibson’s church, and the observer was present.

As for Grigorieva’s feelings on the situation, a source said Lucia’s mother “has not expressed an opinion on that one way or the other.”

As this legal war continues, do you think Gibson will gain leverage by having the “observer” present while he interacts with Lucia?
