Mel Gibson Sought Therapy Over Relationship – The troubled state of Mel Gibson’s relationship with his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva was not lost on him. A friend said that the actor realized how unhealthy the relationship was and recognized that they were in a bad place and he was getting his buttons pushed.
That is why earlier this year, Mel Gibson sought therapy because he wanted to figure out how to extricate himself from the unhealthy relationship peacefully and calmly.
Around March, the couple split peacefully and in May, the two signed a custody settlement for their 8-month-old daughter. Stephen Kolodny, Gibson’s lawyer, described the deal as very generous support payments. A joint custody and eventually 50/50 custody of their daughter, but the Russian singer claimed that payments have since withered.
Over the last few weeks, things have went off in a very public manner leading the couple to a locked bitter custody dispute. And now, the superstar is facing domestic allegations and the fallout from leaked audiotapes.
A friend says that Mel Gibson is still in therapy and he’s coping as well as can be expected.
