In a recent celebrity case, Mel Gibson has been ordered to pay $750,000 in child support to his ex-girlfriend, Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva. The payment is to be divided into thirds, with Grigorieva receiving the last payment in 2016.

This makes sense considering custody is more often awarded to the mother. But in a developing child custody battle in California, these roles have been reversed. As the couple works to hash out a custody agreement, the father's counsel told 'Star' magazine he thinks the child will go to the father. He said he thinks the child's mother would not be awarded custody because she would find it difficult "to maintain a clean track record." The father's lawyer added he and his client want the child's mother to have a lot of visitation.
