Attorneys for Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have asked the judge in an ongoing lawsuit for more than $3 million in fees.

Celebrity website TMZ.com reports that a group of Grigorieva's present and past lawyers showed up in court on Wednesday, chatting in the hallway and asking Judge Scott Gordon to order Gibson to open his wallet for just a few months' work.

Grigorieva's current lawyers, Daniel Horowitz, Marty Garbus and Ron Litz, are asking for $1.2 million for work performed since September, 2010.

Manley Freid's law firm is asking for $250,000.  Mel has already been ordered to pay Freid's firm $500,000.

Alan Shifman wants $163,000 for one month's work.

Other lawyers and law firms requested hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees as well.

Judge Gordon has not decided how much Mel should pay in the latest request.
