Oksana Grigorieva has dropped her domestic violence claims against Mel Gibson in their on-going custody dispute.
Lawyers for the actor's ex girlfriend have said she instructed them to remove allegations Mel struck her during an argument.
No reason was given, though a source said Oksana, 41, "didn't want to drag the case out".
The pair have apparently been meeting to try and work out custody issues concerning their daughter Lucia.
Last month, 55-year-old Mel was put on probabtion after pleading "no contest" to a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.
