The Huge Mistake This Celebrity Sugar Baby Made with $15 Million From Mel Gibson

Celebrity Sugar Baby And Mel GibsonRuss­ian musi­cian Oksana Grig­orieva, 43, never used to have to worry about money. She was once the high-profile sugar baby of 69-year-old James Bond actor, Tim­o­thy Dal­ton and 58-year-old Oscar win­ner Mel Gib­son. She even had kids with both of these older men. Unfor­tu­nately, her sugar baby luck has run out—Oksana Grig­orieva has offi­cially filed for bank­ruptcy. And not only is she com­pletely out of money, but she’s also up to her neck in hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars of debt.

Where did all her money go? Accord­ing to the legal doc­u­ments, the celebrity sugar baby has no more than $10 in cash to her name, thanks to almost half a mil­lion dol­lars in legal debt—she report­edly owes around $250,000 to five dif­fer­ent lawyers—but only has $48,000 worth of assets.

As you may recall, Mel Gib­son split from his sugar baby less than six months after she gave birth to their daugh­ter, and the breakup got really messy. After Grig­orieva accused the actor of phys­i­cally assault­ing her, the celebrity cou­ple became embroiled in a heated cus­tody bat­tle. The sugar baby report­edly went through 40 lawyers through­out their feud and at the end of it all, Gib­son was ordered to pay her a measly $750,000—that was after she turned down his $15.0 mil­lion set­tle­ment offer, accord­ing to reports.

Although Grig­orieva still receives a hefty sum of money from child sup­port pay­ments ($20,000 from Gib­son and $2,500 from Dal­ton), it sup­pos­edly still isn’t enough to cover her moun­tain of debt.

What do you think: Should Oksana Grig­orieva have taken Mel Gibson’s $15.0 mil­lion set­tle­ment offer?
