In a move that shocked the courtroom, Oksana Grigorieva dropped her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson at a hearing for the couple's custody case earlier today (May 4).
According to TMZ, Oksana's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, told Judge Scott Gordon that they would no longer claim Mel's alleged violence as grounds to take away his custody rights.
Furthermore, the domestic violence protective order Grigorieva obtained, which prohibited Gibson from contacting her, has also been terminated as of today.
Sources say this was an effort to extend an olive branch in an attempt to settle the custody case and as well as to open the communication lines between the two former lovers.
