Earlier we told you about the reported settlement involving Mel Gibson's handing over of $100K to Alexander "Sasha" Dalton. This money was given to secure Mel's freedom from ever being sued by the kid he allegedly terrorized.
But he's getting his panties in a wad over it, claiming no such thing.
The deal between Mel and OG is exactly what was set forth on the record, in open court, on August 31, 2011. Mel is paying exactly the sums set forth to OG ($250,000) — and is paying no additional sums to Alexander Dalton or anyone else. How OG chooses to have any sums due from Mel allocated is her business.
However, the legal document filed by Oksana's lawyer claims:
Of the first $250,000 paid, $100,000 belongs to Alexander Dalton who is waiving his rights to sue Mel Gibson and must be compensated for this to be lawful. If Alexander Dalton does not get his $100,000.00, he cannot waive his rights to sue. Mr. Gibson negotiated for that as a part of the settlement and is entitled to the benefit of his bargain.
Looks like some of these guys need to retake some communications classes!
What is the bottom line? And Mel, wouldn't it be smarter for you to just agree with this? You're not agreeing to pay any more money. You're just agreeing that $100,000 of it will go to Sasha. Why are you arguing this so vehemently?
