She is already said to be earning $20,000 each month in child support.
But it has now been claimed that Mel Gibson's ex Oskana Grigorieva is planning a fresh legal bid to have that sum increased by more than 400 percent.
According to a report by TMZ, the 46 year-old will ask the family law judge to increase the Hollywood star's financial liability to more than $1 million every year for their six-year-old daughter Lucia.
They claim she's justifying the eyebrow-raising plea by arguing that she needs security, yet 'can't point to any security risk involving [the] 6-year-old'.
The gossip site also suggests 'she needs to support a lifestyle of vacations, travel, lodging and other items that make Mel look like mobile home material.'
MailOnline have contacted representatives for Mel Gibson, but are yet to receive a response.
Lucia has been caught between her parents' bitter separation battle - in which they both once held restraining orders against each another.
In June 2015 a Los Angeles court granted the Mad Max star permission to spend a month with Lucia in his homeland during pre-production for new film Hacksaw Ridge, which commenced filming in November.
Ironically, despite her demands for money, it is understood that Oksana, 45, did not want their daughter to go and objected to her spending time overseas with her father.
Oksana filed for bankruptcy less than four years after knocking back a reported $15m child custody settlement offer from the megarich actor, who is worth an estimated $425m.
The hard-up Russian pianist made the move due to prohibitive legal debts said to be in the range of $250,000.
Previous legal documents filed showed she is claiming she is so broke she has just $10 in cash to her name, and has $48,000 in assets. However, she also receives £2,500 each month from Timothy Dalton for their son, Alexander.
Mel also boasts a brood of seven children with his former wife, Robyn.
