Mel Gibson may be a bad husband and a pretty awful boyfriend but we’ve always believed he was a good father… until now.
Mel Gibson‘s ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, claims in new court papers that Mel was so desperate to get outside for a cigarette that he precariously propped up their 2-month-old baby, Lucia, on some pillows on a table and left her alone while he satisfied his craving. The baby then allegedly slid off the table and onto the floor! “So literally she was sitting on a slide on top of the table,” Oksana said. “I think he went to have a smoke and she slid down.” Oksana says that Mel was upset after the incident and claims that Lucia cried for 20 minutes after the fall.
“I looked at her bruises — not bruises but the bump on her front and the bump on her back, back of the head and the front of the head and analyzed that — but she looked focused. After initial shock of crying and, of course, I consoled her and she stopped crying eventually,” Oksana said.
She added that the baby had to be treated by a doctor “because Mel dropped her and she needed to be seen by [a] chiropractor.”
Yikes! All parents make mistakes, but would you leave your newborn baby lying on a table while you went outside to have a cigarette?
Mel, 54, and Oksana, 40, have been battling for custody of Lucia since they split earlier this year. The Hollywood star was accused of hitting Oksana during a heated argument in January, while she was holding the baby in his arms.
“You hit me and you hit [Lucia] while she was in my hands! Mel, you’re losing your mind.
You need medication,” Oksana said in a taped conversation with the Oscar-winning actor, who has seven older children with his ex-wife, Robyn.
The Department of Children and Family Services is continuing to investigate both parents.
