(Newser) – Mel Gibson spends $600,000 on living expenses each month, his lawyers told the court handling his custody battle. Gibson is attempting to limit the child support he has to pay ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva for their daughter to $6,000 a month—1% of his own expenses—and has submitted a breakdown of his spending to the judge, RadarOnline reports. No word yet on whether the judge agrees with Gibson's definition of a basic living expense.
