The absence of an agreement covering that concern of Oksana's was a major reason why the Russian musician walked away from the big money settlement, one source told exclusively. Marathon negotiation sessions were held May 15 and 16 and a preliminary deal was struck , before it eventually exploded.

While most reports have said the deal guaranteed Oksana $15 million learned it was actually worth $20 million. Oksana signed a preliminary agreement but did not sign off on the final deal.

“Oksana felt Mel was dangerous,” the source said. “She wanted him to be in Lucia’s life, but she was worried about everyone’s safety.”
