Passport tussle over Mel’s daughter

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has appeared in a closed court hearing in LA involving custody issues with their young daughter.

Grigorieva did not speak to reporters when she arrived at the court yesterday. Gibson (above) did not appear at the hearing, which was closed to the public.

A summary posted outside the courtroom indicated lawyers would argue a motion on whether to seize the passport of the nine-month-old girl.

The hearing came as sheriff's detectives were winding down their investigation into allegations that Gibson (54) harmed Grigorieva during an argument.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore has said the results of the investigation could be given to prosecutors by the end of the week.
