London: Mel Gibson`s ex-girlfriend, singer Oksana Grigorieva, might still take the actor to court despite his striking a plea bargain over domestic violence charges.

The Russian singer had accused Gibson of attacking her during their bust-up in January 2010. The former couple have been fighting a case for the custody of their daughter Lucia after their break-up.

A website reports the veteran actor struck a plea deal with Los Angeles prosecutors to keep him out of jail. He was handed three years probation and the judge even asked him to undergo counselling. He also has to carry out 16 hours of community service and pay almost $600 in fines.

However, Grigorieva`s lawyer Daniel Horowitz is adamant his client will continue to sue Gibson for battery, emotional distress and defamation, despite him being sentenced.

"Our position hasn`t changed," Horowitz told a website.
