Mel offers $6000 child support

MEL Gibson reportedly wants to pay just $6,000 a month in child support.

Lawyers for the 'Braveheart' actor are said to have told a judge overseeing his bitter custody battle with former lover Oksana Grigorieva - the mother of his nine-month-old daughter Lucia - that the 54-year-old star spends a staggering $7.2 million a year on himself but he does not want to increase payments for his daughter.

According to RadarOnline.com, Mel's lawyers insist some of Oksana's requests - such as he pays for bodyguards - are unnecessary as Lucia is still just a baby.

In contrast, they argue the money he spends on himself is necessary for his living expenses and doesn't include luxuries such as his private jet.

Mel and Oksana have been locked in a bitter dispute since separating in April.

Since their split, audio tapes have been leaked which apparently feature Mel verbally abusing and threatening Oksana.

In one recording, Mel - who has seven children with ex-wife Robyn Moore - claims he has doesn't have any "f**king money" and blasts the Russian singer as a "user".

He rants: "I don't have any f** king money! I have to support you and everybody else! I have to sell paintings. I have to sell my box at the Lakers game."

After Mel and Robyn ended their 28-year marriage, the former dental nurse was legally entitled to half her former spouse's fortune as they had not signed a pre-nuptial agreement.
