Is Mel Gibson in contempt of court?

Mel Gibson is called a dead beat dad. Oksana Grigoriva, the mother of Gibson's child has filed a contempt of court charge against Mel Gibson due to his failure to pay the twenty thousand dollar per month child support payment he was ordered to pay by a judge. For three months since the order has been in place Gibson has paid between five and ten thousand dollars in child support.

Mel Gibson is known to be worth somewhere around 500 million dollars and so it's not that he can't afford it. In fact, Gibson is actually waiting for another ruling from the court to determine whether or not Gibson can collect rent from Grigoriva since she's still staying in their Hollywood mansion with the child. The rent Gibson is looking to deduct from his child support payment is six thousand dollars.
