Add Mel Gibson to the growing list of Hollywood dads that will soon be paying child support. After announcing last week that the actor and girlfriend Oksana Grigoriev had gone separate ways, only 5 months after welcoming daughter Lucia, a lawyer is now speaking out about the cost that Gibson will pay. Attorney Steven Knowles estimates that Gibson will be responsible for paying $12,000 to $15,000 per month and tells PEOPLE,
This is not dissolution of marriage action. The mother would have rights to child support, which in the case of Mr. Gibson, will be very substantial. He is what we call a high-income earner, and there is a high-income earner stipulation that says they must pay any amount reasonably necessary for the support of the child.
Gibson, who is currently in the process of a divorce from his wife of 28 years, Robyn, will most likely not be responsible for spousal support. Knowles clarifies, “Merely living together and having a child does not give the mother any rights to property and certainly no spousal support.”
A source says that the split between the two was “amicable,” and shares that the two plan to co-parent, adding, “They’re still friends and they’ll both raise Lucia together.”
Daughter Lucia is the second child for Oksana Grigorieva, who has a son, Alexander, with actor Timothy Dalton, while Gibson, 54, has seven children with his ex-wife Robyn, six sons and one daughter.

Christy Turlington and Ed Burns – parents to Grace, 6, and Finn, 4 – are set make waves during New York’s Tribeca Film Festival. Ed’s film Nice Guy Johnny debuts on April 23 and Christy’s film No Woman No Cry premieres on April 24.
The Brothers McMullen star talked to OK! about his “sweet” wife who encourages him to follow his dreams, and how he dines out with his lovely wife every night.
These days just to be able to go out to dinner without the kids – that’s a highlight. I love eating in a different restaurant every night,” Ed says. “That’s what I like to take advantage of. There’s so many. There’s a great little place called Max’s on Duane Street in Tribeca. Best lasagna in the city.”
Ed went on to say that Christy has always encouraged him “to not give up my dream.”
“I’ve had temptations over the years to go and direct a studio romantic comedy, and she’s said ‘just stick to what you do, who cares if it’s small?’ When someone has your back where it relates to your dreams, that’s invaluable.”
He continues to gush about his supermodel wife.
“She’s really nice to me,” he says. “She’s sweet — a great mother.”
