Settling: Mel Gibson, who agreed on Wednesday to pay out $750,000 to his former girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, over the next five years, People reports. Grigorieva, 41, also gets to continue living in a Los Angeles home that belongs to the actor, 55. The couple will share custody of their daughter, Lucia, 50-50. Thus ends one of the ugliest tabloid dust-ups in recent memory, which kicked off when Grigorieva accused Gibson of domestic assault in 2010. The whole debacle culminated in the release, by Grigorieva, of several not-very-flattering tapes that featured an enraged, panting Gibson bellowing obscenities and abuses.
That’s the last anybody will have to, or even be able to, hear from either of them about the matter. Also under the deal: The parties are not allowed to publicly discuss each other or their relationship. Specifically, they cannot write books about each other.
The agreement settles a civil lawsuit that Grigorieva’s attorney had threatened to bring against Gibson over the alleged assault. Gibson settled the matter in criminal court last March, by pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery.
