Mel Gibson's Girlfriend Sues Over Lingerie Photos
The only person who gets to see Oksana Grigorieva in lingerie these days is Mel Gibson - and that's the way he wants it to
Oksana, pregnant by Mel, on Tuesday sued a man she claims sold photos of her in lingerie. The suit, filed by top Los Angeles firm Lavely & Singer, calls Oksana "an internationally renowned model, pianist and musical composer and performer." (Quick, name one of her songs. Buzzzz. Time's up. Sorry.)

The lawsuit claims Samuel Oriti met Oksana in 2004 and told her he was trying to negotiate a deal for her with a prominent lingerie company. She participated in a photo session, based on his representations the suit claims, and modeled lingerie. Oksana also claims she paid for the shoot and that Oriti promised not to distribute the photos elsewhere.
But, once RadarOnline.com was first to reveal that Oksana was Mel's new girlfriend, interest in her grew and the photos were
published - including on RadarOnline.com, the suit says. Suddenly flush with Mel's money, Oksana was able to afford one of LA's top law firms to make sure no one but Mel gets to see her in lingerie. (This, of course, excludes Timothy Dalton, the father of her child.)
The suit does not claim that there is any written agreement between Oriti and Oksana and it does not provide proof for her claim that she paid for the photo session. But Oksana does ask for more than $100,000, which Mel will donate to the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. (Kidding! We're kidding!)
