Oksana Grigorieva appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday (August 18) in the child custody case involving her ex Mel Gibson.
The sparring couple reached a confidential custody agreement in May, but repeated hearings have been held since then. Neither Mel or Oksana have appeared in court prior to Wednesday, and ET reports that Oksana was surrounded by deputies as she made her way into the courthouse. Mel did not attend the hearing, which was closed to the public.
According to reports, attorneys for both sides were to discuss whether to seize the passport of Mel and Oksana’s daughter Lucia, 9-months, so that neither party could take her out of the country.
