And the big question on everyone's minds is….WHY???
This morning, Oksana Grigorieva officially dropped her domestic violence case against her former lover and father of her child, Mel Gibson.
Her lawyer, Dan Horowitz, announced the news this morning in meeting with the judge on the case as well as Mel's legal team. We hear that both parties were visibly shocked by the news.
So what gives? Why quit now? It's not like she didn't have tons of evidence to support her claim. The phone calls alone were enough to sway any judge or jury in her favor.
Well, as we understand it, Oksana's decision to drop the charges was a gesture of peace. She may actually be looking to extend an invitation to talk to Mel personally, now that the DV protective order she obtained has also been nullified. We're not sure exactly what she wants to talk to him about, but we're concerned that this move might lead her down a path she has no business traveling, if you catch our drift.
Let's put it another way - so far, there is no word yet if Oksana is still pursuing a civil lawsuit against Mel. Lawsuit = $$$. Catching on yet?
Regardless of her motives, we think this was a bad idea and we're not really sure why her lawyer allowed her to do this. Whatever she has up her sleeves, she better be damn sure she's prepared for the consequences.
