Mel Gibson, ex in child support feud

Report: Grigorieva asking for more than $40,000

Oksana Grigorieva is asking the judge a judge that her ex-boyfriend Mel Gibson's monthly child support payments be increased from $5,000 to more than $40,000, TMZ reported.

The payments are in support of baby Lucia, and Grigorieva had previously argued the child's needs require a higher amount.

According to TMZ, Grigorieva also receives $2,500 a month in child support from Timothy Dalton, father of her 13-year-old son Alexander. "It's a tough sell convincing Judge Scott Gordon that a 9-month-old baby needs nearly 20 times more money than a 13-year-old boy," TMZ said.
