Details of the legal agreement between Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva were unveiled in the Los Angeles Superior Court, which announced last Friday that a deal had been struck.
Gibson, 55, who appeared subdued in court, will also give a house to their daughter Lucia in a settlement that ended years of public feuding between the estranged couple, said judge Peter D. Lichtman.
Grigorieva and 22-month-old Lucia also will be allowed to live in the suburban Los Angeles home until Lucia’s 18th birthday, with the sale of that house then to be part of the child’s trust.
After the judge read details of the settlement, Gibson stood up and said, “I’d like to say thanks, your honor, for bringing this matter to a reasonable conclusion.”
Grigorieva, a 40-year-old Russian musician, thanked the judge and promised to do, “what’s best for Lucia.” Gibson, who won Best Picture and Best Director Oscars for “Braveheart” in 1996, avoided jail time in March this year when he decided not to appeal domestic violence charges made by Grigorieva in 2010.
He was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend a domestic violence counseling program. (...)"
