There’s been a lot of talk recently about the breakup of Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva. What at first seemed like a very amicable split has now blown up into a huge domestic violence situation, with a little bit of blackmail thrown in. Oksana promised us that we would “find out more” right after they broke up, and boy are we ever. First there was the recording where Mel threw some racial slurs around, and told Oksana that he hoped she got raped. Now, just as Oksana promised, even more is coming out and Mel has once again been caught on tape, saying and doing terrible things to Oksana, as well as their two-month old child. Celebrity Dirty Laundry has the scoop on what happened in that incident,
“A new tape recording reveals a teary Oksana asking 54-year-old actor Mel Gibson what he thinks he is doing hitting her while she is holding their two-month-old child in early January. According to RadarOnline.com, Oksana can be heard on the tape saying: “What kind of man is that who would hit a woman while she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face? What kind of man is that?”
The ‘Braveheart’ star answers: “You know what – you f***ing deserved it.” The allegations are the latest in a string of accusations by Oksana, who has also filed a restraining order against Mel.
Other recordings allegedly feature the two-time Oscar winner telling the Russian singer she looks like a “f***ing pig in heat”. Mel has also sought a court order to stop the recordings being publically released, and to prevent photographs which apparently show the extent of the injuries he caused Oksana – he is alleged to have given her two black eyes and broken her front teeth.”
But, things don’t end there. It seems that the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has gotten wind of the allegations and is now making a formal investigation into the matter. Which means, that if everything goes as it should, Mel could be in a lot of trouble. This is what Radar has to say about the investigation,
“After RadarOnline.com revealed Mel Gibson told his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva she “f**cking deserved” to get hit, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has launched a domestic violence investigation.
In the new tape recording, a teary Grigorieva can be heard asking the 54-year-old actor what he thinks he is doing hitting her while she is holding their eight-month-old child Lucia.
The allegations stem from a January incident at the actor’s Malibu mansion.
“What kind of man is that who would hit a woman while she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face?” questions the Russian musician.
The Braveheart star answers: “You know what — you f***ing deserved it.”
Now the Sheriff’s Dept. has confirmed its investigators are “currently gathering information regarding the allegations.”
And if you thought that this was a closed case of domestic abuse, you might be wrong. It seems that some, namely TMZ, are suspicious of Oksana’s motives, because she used the tapes to blackmail Mel for cash some time ago. This is what they had to say about that,
“Our sources say Gibson has emails and other evidence Oksana “tried to extract money from Mel in return for the [explosive] tapes.” As TMZ has already reported, Oksana secretly recorded Gibson during several heated arguments back in February.
We’re told Sheriff’s investigators are concerned that Oksana had contact with civil lawyers and judges while she negotiated a visitation agreement with Mel over a 6-month period but never once contacted police. Oksana was represented by attorney Eric George, the son of California Supreme Court Justice Ronald George, to handle the visitation case. She went through 2 full days of mediation in May, conducted by two former judges, one of whom was a former federal prosecutor and negotiated a visitation agreement.
We’ve learned the agreement — signed by both Oksana and Mel — gave Mel full visitation rights and future joint legal custody of their daughter.
Last month, Oksana refused to give Mel his visitation rights and it was then that she made allegations of abuse for the first time.”
I don’t really understand what the visitation rights and joint custody have to do with the blackmail tapes. I would get that if there weren’t actual tapes, and it was some bogus story Oksana made up because she didn’t want their child seeing Mel. But there’s proof that these things happened so, I don’t blame her for not wanting her child in an environment that contains Mel Gibson. And as for trying to get money from him for the tapes – well, he’s an ass. And if she tried to make money off of him being an ass, well, so be it. It definitely doesn’t scream the makings of a good person, but I mean, he did make his own bed on that one.
