Today Mel is back in a Los Angeles courtroom to resume his custody fight with his estranged ex-girlfriend.
The Academy Award winner sat quietly in a courtroom across from Oksana, an aspiring Russian musician, before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon began a closed hearing.
The former flames have been sparring for months over custody and financial issues involving their infant daughter.
Investigators are looking into Mel’s allegation that Okasana attempted to extort him after their breakup earlier this year. For her part, Oksana has alleged Mel struck her during an argument in January.
No criminal charges have yet been filed in either case.
