Things are getting ugly between former couple Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva.

Russian musician Grigorieva claims that the actor has stiffed her on child support for their daughter Lucia, nearly 8 months.

"He is not paying me a penny. Nothing," Grigorieva tells British paper The Mail on Sunday. "I am having to live on credit cards and borrowed money. It is not a good situation."

Recent unconfirmed web reports claim the pair filed dueling restraining orders against one another. Not so, Grigorieva claims. "There is no restraining order against me, but my lawyers went to court and a judge granted a restraining order against him."

The singer adds angrily: "There are so many lies being said about me. I was trying to keep things dignified and be respectful to the father of my daughter, but what he is doing is cruelty."

Grigorieva declined to go into further detail about their current battle, noting, "The truth will come out eventually. There are custody issues. What is happening to me is not fair."

Gibson, 54, and Grigorieva, 40, split after a year of dating in April -- just a year after he divorced Robyn, his wife of 28 years and mother to seven of his kids. Robyn's settlement -- Gibson was worth an estimated $900 million -- was reportedly one of the most expensive in Hollywood history.

The Russian star also clarifies the nature of their split. 'He didn't dump me, I left him. I rescued my children and myself."

Gibson's rep has declined to comment on the ex-girlfriend's claims.
