EXCLUSIVE: Mel Gibson Spends $7.2 Million Each Year On Living Expenses; Tells Court Oksana Only Deserves 1%

Scandal might have cost Mel Gibson his reputation, but not his lifestyle.

The foul-mouthed actor, who will soon learn if he’ll be charged for allegedly punching his ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva and threatening to kill her, has told a judge overseeing the couple’s bitter custody battle that he blows $600,000 on himself – each month!

RadarOnline.com has learned Mel’s lawyers detailed his $7.2 million-a-year slush fund as part of their argument to limit Oksana’s child support for their infant daughter, Lucia, to $6,000-a-month.

The massive chunk of change was at the center of Wednesday’s marathon court hearing in which the Russian musician requested a judge increase Mel’s support payments for their nine-month-old.

While Oksana claims she should be entitled to more, Mel is insisting some of her expenses – such as bodyguards – are a waste.

Mel’s lawyers are arguing Lucia is a baby and doesn’t need more than the $6,000 he plans to pay, despite it being only 1% of what he shells out on himself each month.

Team Mel claims his own expenses are not an extravagance but a necessity — the whopping total is just for his living costs and doesn’t even include such luxuries as his private jet.

Yet, as Mel continues to live a lavish lifestyle, he has handed over just $18,000 in child support since last December, according to sources inside Oksana’s camp.

Despite Mel’s admission that he is living-life-large, the Lethal Weapon star protested he was broke in the infamous audio tapes, claiming the millions he made in Hollywood were gone and he doesn’t have “any f**king money!”

Mel slammed Oksana for being a “user,” who pushed him over the edge after already being stretched thin from his incredibly pricey divorce with ex-wife Robyn Moore.

“I don’t have any f** king money! I have to support you and everybody else! I have to sell paintings. I have to sell my box at the Lakers game,” Mel screamed at Oksana, in tape five.

His split from Robyn after 28 years of marriage was a near-billion dollar divorce.

With no pre-nuptial agreement, Robyn was legally entitled to half of everything Mel had earned including a host of homes in Malibu and Costa Rica, along with his own tropical island paradise in Fiji.
