Mel Gibson’s baby mama Oksana Grigorieva loses settlement money after blabbing in radio interview: report
A two minute radio interview has cost Mel Gibson's baby mama hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Oksana Grigorieva didn't directly reveal too much in her October sit down with Howard Stern, but a judge ruled that she violated the confidentiality agreement that she signed as part of a 2011 custody agreement over their daughter Lucia, TMZ reported.
Howard Stern interviews Oksana Grigorieva in May 2013.

Oksana Grigorieva, who made the mistake of turning down a $15 million settlement offer from Gibson, looks at her former boyfriend during a hearing in a Los Angeles Superior Court during their 2011 custody battle.
The slip of the tongue will cost Grigovrieva at least one third of the $750,000 settlement that Gibson still owed. That payment had been scheduled to be doled out in January 2016.
Gibson (R) has reason to smile after a judge rules in 2011 that he’s only on the hook for $750,000 to the mother of his daughter Lucia.
The legal blow comes on the heels of news that Grigorieva filed for bankruptcy, with just $10 cash to her name, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ
Actor Mel Gibson (R) and Oksana Grigorieva arrive at the 2009 premiere of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’
The numbers are more stunning when considering that Grigorieva famously turned down a $15 million settlement from Gibson to roll the dice on a bigger payday in court.
Gibson's short-lived relationship with the pianist has been bitter for both sides. The "Ransom" actor's wife of 31 years, Robyn, filed for divorce in 2009 when news broke that her husband had fathered a love child with Grigorieva.
Gibson pled no contest in 2011 to a charge that he punched the mother of his child in the mouth during a fight a year earlier.

NEW COURT BATTLE OVER LUCIA (UPDATE)
11:30 PST: We've learned Mel walked out of court victorious. The judge is allowing Mel to take Lucia to Australia for 1 month and keep her in L.A. an additional 2 weeks before he leaves the country.
We're also told there was a dispute over which kindergarten school Lucia would attend and the judge sided with Mel.
On the bigger issue of ongoing contention, we're told Mel and Oksana both told the judge they're working on being able to better co-parent.
Mel Gibson and baby mama Oksana Grigorieva are about to square off in court this morning ... and it's all about their 5-year-old daughter Lucia.
TMZ has learned, Mel is about to go to Australia to do a movie and wants to take his daughter with him for the summer. We're told Oksana objects, so they'll be making their respective cases before the family law judge.
Our sources say the contention between Mel and Oksana on issues of child-rearing has not subsided ... there are many conflicts.
And this is interesting ... we've learned Mel is extremely involved in Lucia's life. In fact, the judge has continually increased his custody of Lucia over the years, to the point where he now has physical custody of his daughter slightly more than 50% of the time.
