Mel Gibson’s Ex Alleges Domestic Violence Left Her Suffering From PTSD.
The love may be lost, but the lawsuits linger on for Mel Gibson and ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva, who alleges in new legal documents that the domestic violence she endured while they were together has left her with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and may have contributed to the growth of a tumour.
In legal documents obtained by The Blast, Grigorieva, 47, alleges she is suffering from PTSD “due to domestic violence and the protracted, expensive and difficult paternity battle she had to endure.”

Gibson, 62, and Grigorieva share a daughter from their brief (2007-2010) but tumultuous relationship, which was plagued by allegations she was physically assaulted by Gibson in 2010 (the actor/director was charged with misdemeanour battery, and cut a plea deal the following year). In 2011, Grigorieva sued Gibson for $15 million, but ultimately settled for $750,000.
