Los Angeles - A judge says Mel Gibson will pay his ex-girlfriend $750 000 to settle a long-running custody dispute and establish a trust to benefit their young daughter.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Peter Lichtman announced terms of the settlement on Wednesday at a hearing attended by both the Oscar winner and Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva.
The agreement calls for Gibson to continue paying for a multimillion-dollar home for Grigorieva and their daughter, Lucia, who turns 2 in late October. When the girl turns 18, the home will be sold and the proceeds will go to her.
The settlement calls for the former couple's daughter to receive the same level of financial support as Gibson's seven other children.
Lichtman also says neither Gibson nor Grigorieva can speak or write about their relationship.
