Grigorieva, a 40-year-old Russian musician, had requested custody of the girl, who will be two in October, as well as assurances that visits with the 55-year-old Gibson would be court-supervised.

Details of the deal announced late Friday were not immediately released.

The final terms of the custody deal will be discussed in closed session, and financial terms will be taken up in court on Wednesday, according to Mary Hearn, a spokeswoman for Los Angeles Superior court.

The actor, who won Best Picture and Best Director Oscars for “Braveheart” in 1996, avoided jail time in March this year when he decided not to appeal domestic violence charges made by Grigorieva in 2010.

He was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to attend a domestic violence counseling program.

Gibson’s career has struggled since his 2006 arrest for drunk driving, which exploded into a major scandal because of anti-Semitic remarks he made to a highway patrol officer.

In that case, he was sentenced to three years probation and fined $1,300, after undergoing alcohol rehabilitation.
