Report: Ex-Girlfriend Keeps Suing Mel Gibson Over Battery


Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson


Attorney for Oksana Grigorieva has informed that the Russian singer still plans to sue the 'Braveheart' actor although he has struck a plea deal over a charge of battery.

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva still plans to sue the embattled actor despite him striking a plea deal over a charge of misdemeanor battery, according to her lawyer. The Russian singer accused the "Lethal Weapon" star of attacking her during a bust-up in January 2010 and the pair have been fighting through the courts for custody of their daughter Lucia after splitting in 2010.

Gibson struck a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors to keep him out of jail and on Friday, March 11, was handed three years probation and ordered by a judge to undergo counseling. He also has to carry out 16 hours of community service and pay almost $600 in fines.

However, Grigorieva's lawyer Daniel Horowitz is adamant his client will continue to sue Gibson for battery, emotional distress and defamation, despite him being sentenced. When asked by TMZ whether she would still file a lawsuit after the plea deal, Horowitz says, "Our position hasn't changed."
