Mel Gibson could be behind bars

The 54-year-old actor is accused by ex-partner Oksana Grigorieva of breaching a court order to provide $20,000 a month in child support for their daughter Lucia and if found guilty at a Nov 10 court hearing Gibson could face jail.

"For three consecutive months, Mel has paid Oksana somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000 each month, it varies, but either way, it is well short of what a judge instructed he must deliver the mother of his child,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

Oksana's attorney Lisa Bloom claimed Mel was a "deadbeat dad" who is trying to "bully" Oksana out of the money he is supposed to hand over to her.

"Mel Gibson, at this point, is a deadbeat dad." Asked why Gibson who is rumoured to be worth $600 million had failed to pay the monthly figure, she said: "Because he wants to continue to bully Oksana. This is a pattern of behaviour that has gone on and on and he thinks he can take advantage of the mother of his daughter."
