(Newser) – Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva must have one spoiled child. Grigorieva wants more child support from her babydaddy—eight times more, to be exact. Gibson is currently paying $5,000 a month and Grigorieva asked a judge to make that sum $40,000, TMZ reports. It's worth noting that Gibson also pays for the house she and the baby live in, and sources say her other babydaddy, Timothy Dalton, gets away with paying her just $2,500 a month for their 13-year-old son. On the other hand, Gibson does spend an awful lot of money on himself each month—click here to see how much.
