Bad news for her...
TMZ reports that Oksana Grigorieva lost hundreds of thousands of dollars after violating her confidentiality agreement. She had an interview with Howard Stern in October and spoke about Gibson, even after she promised not to say anything about him publicly.
During the interview, Stern sympathized with Gibson and said she has to go forward in her life. She mentioned her "painful and dark" experience (which involved Gibson striking her in the mouth) and said she wants to help others. When asked if he "wined and dined" her, she said it was too painful to talk about. Stern then spoke of the audio of the incident. Grigorieva said: "Life happens ... I'm still catching up on the humor part."
Stern then referenced parts of Gibson's rants during the interview and said a woman, especially the mother of Gibson's child, shouldn't be treated like she was. She thanked him and that was the end of the interview.
A judge ruled that she was never meant to talk about Gibson, even to the extent that she did, which meant she lost the remaining $375,000 of her $750,000 settlement (she was getting paid in installments). She has filed for bankruptcy.
Gibson originally offered her fifteen million but she turned him down.
