It was Mel Gibson who wanted to yank baby daughter Lucia's passport, not his scorned ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The disgraced actor's legal team attempted to have Oksana surrender the eight-month-old's passport while their bitter court battles brews, but their move failed.
"Mel is worried that Oksana might flee the country with the baby," said a source close to the case.
"The final agreement reached was for Oksana's lawyers to keep it in a safe place."
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Oksana appeared for a closed court hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday involving custody issues with Lucia.
Testimony and negotiations went all day, behind closed doors.
At issue in addition to the passport, according to the court docket, were child support and attorney fees.
