Child Services: Mel's an Awesome Dad

Mel Gibson: 1; Oksana: 0. Believe it or not the Department of Children and Family Services is praising Mel for being an "excellent father" to his 8 month-old daughter Lucia.

DCFS launched an investigation against Mel after his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva claimed he hit her while she was holding their daughter. But after a lengthy investigation, they sided with Mel.

"The Department of Children and Family Services believes Mel has a wonderful relationship with his infant daughter Lucia," a source close to the actor told Radaronline.

“They have a very healthy father-daughter relationship,” the source said. “He is very involved with her. Mel is a great father to her and this is why there have been no changes as far as his visits with her are concerned."

Mel is still being investigated by the L A. County Sheriff’s Department on domestic violence charges, but DCFS' reports should help his domestic violence case.

Mel and his camp have pretty much stayed mum throughout this entire mess and that's certainly helped him. While Oksana is releasing tapes and talking up a storm about their rocky relationship, Mel's camp hasn't released a single statement. And unfortunately for Oksana, she's turning out to be the bad guy now. Whose side are you on?
