Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend wants him to pay her PR bills, Fox reports TMZ sources saying. She allegedly spent $84,000 in PR and legal fees to “thwart public perception that she sold secret tapes,” the story says, claiming she felt she was “getting trashed in the media.”

TMZ sources say Grigorieva felt hiring PR reps was the only way [to] counter someone as big and powerful as Mel Gibson.

The story goes on to say Grigorieva wants the custody/child support case judge to clear the debt, catch being, it points out, that the judge wouldn’t award money for PR expenses, but rather would only switch up the agreement (5,000 a month and the house) based on their baby Lucia’s needs.
