Oksana Grigorieva claims Mel Gibson beat her, she’s got a restraining order too

Edge of Darkness Premiere held at The Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California on January 26th. Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva Fame Pictures, Inc

This morning Radar reported that Mel Gibson had gotten a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend/baby-mama Oksana Grigorieva. Radar’s sources were vague, and what I came away with was that Mel wanted to preemptively shut Oksana up about whatever damaging information she knows about him. All of that, under the guise of custodial issues. Now TMZ has a completely different take – their sources claim that Oksana was the one who requested the restraining order, and it was because Mel Gibson is/was violent towards her. Oh, but TMZ confirms that Mel did get a gag order on Oksana too, sorry, I just read that part.

TMZ has learned it was Oksana Grigorieva who got a domestic violence restraining order against Mel Gibson, and not vice versa … and she claims the actor was violent toward her.

We’ve learned Oksana’s lawyers went to the family law court in downtown L.A. last Monday for an emergency hearing, and told the judge that Mel allegedly got violent with her — two sources say Oksana claimed Mel was “extremely violent.”

Sources tell TMZ the judge issued a restraining order prohibiting Mel from having any contact with Oksana. We’re told the next day, Mel’s lawyers went back to court and got the order modified so Mel could see their daughter.

We’re told Mel also got a restraining order against Oksana, but only with respect to prohibiting her from releasing certain information.

A source connected with Mel Gibson scoffed at Oksana’s allegations, claiming the alleged incidents occurred this past January and she traveled with him afterwards — all over the world. As the source put it, “In these cases, when somebody cries wolf, the judge is mandated to assume there’s a wolf, until a full hearing can be held.”

A source connected with Oksana confirms the alleged violent incidents occurred in January, but added, “There were other acts after January that were not physical but still constituted domestic violence.”

[From TMZ]

Wait, the “source close to Mel Gibson” basically says that Mel didn’t beat Oksana because she continued traveling with him? That’s kind of f-cked up logic. Abused women often stay with their abusers, travel with their abusers, et cetera. But I do think there is a definite air of strangeness around this stuff. Could I buy that Mel beat Oksana? Sure. Especially if he was drinking. I think Mel would be capable of some pretty despicable acts while drinking. And even when he was sober, he seems like he could be a real bastard. But I do wonder if this is just a PR/legal/monetary play by Oksana. We’ll see.

UPDATE: Oh, snap! Oksana just gave an exclusive interview to Radar about this sh-t. Oksana just walked outside of her house (that Mel bought her!) and gave her statement to Radar: “He’s playing dirty. The truth will come out. What has been written is not true.” When Radar asked her to confirm that Mel hit her, she said: “I can’t talk about that.” But she did say that she filed her papers before Mel filed papers to get her to shut her mouth. Oh, and she says: “There’s not much I can say right now because it’s a child custody issue, and my lawyers have told me not to talk.” This woman could teach a course, I’m telling you.

    mel its time to take this bitch down, i doubt a WOMAN like oksana would allow mel to continue to abuse her and not call the cops or at least photograph her bruises to future blackmail, what am i being too cynical

  2. bellaluna says:

    As a survivor of domestic abuse (being strangled nearly unconscious a few feet from my infant son’s crib, for instance), I absolutely detest women who cry “abuse!” for attention, as a threat, or to get their way. It trivialises the struggles of those of us who have lived it, survived it; and those who didn’t make it out with their lives.

    When I went through it, 20 years ago, it was a horrible ordeal just to get a restraining order. I had to “prove my case” to the court, and in order to do so, I had to re-live everything on paper from the most recent “incident of abuse” back to the very first one. It was awful and humiliating. Now, all a woman has to do is whisper “abuse” and the police take it from there. Too many of us ended up dead, so the laws changed; now an unscrupulous, vindictive woman can make a man’s life miserable if she so chooses. Bitch.

  3. CathyT says:

    “There were other acts after January that were not physical but still constituted domestic violence.”

    counting down to Gloria Allred..4..3..2..

  4. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    So he beat her in January and she waits until June to report it. Sounds rather suspicious to me.

    Sorry to hear that Bellaluna. Hope you are in a much better place in your life now!

  5. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    Amen, Cathy T!

    Now, can we (the world) take out a restraining order against Gloria Allred?

  6. bellaluna says:

    @ Fluffy Kitten Tail – Thank you. I am in an such a better place now. I have to say, though, I still have panic attacks if I see someone who looks like him, or drives the same kind of truck he drove, even all these years later.

    When someone who is supposed to love you is hurting you, it can take awhile (or a very motivating catalyst) to report it. I was abused for 4 years, and I finally got out when he repeatedly threatened to have me killed and take our son. I knew it was only a matter of time until he abused our son, and not being alive to protect him motivated me to go into hiding.

    I can tell you, an abused woman would not have the freedom to travel ANYWHERE without her abuser, let alone all over the world. Abusers are all about control. I had to call mine before I left the house, and again when I arrived wherever I was going. I had to report where I was, with whom, etc…I doubt she was truly abused.

  7. Taya says:

    Gibson just reeks of an abusing asshole to me.

  8. Whatever says:

    Mel is a prick and has fallen far from the hottie he was, but I just don’t buy this story.

  9. CathyT says:

    Just to clarify, I absolutely agree with Kaiser that abused women often stick with their abusers.

    This situation seems different and self-serving. It’s clear that she has lawyered up. Perhaps something did happen in January. Maybe Mel was drunk. Maybe he was cycling from bipolar disorder. In January he quit smoking and acted cranky in a couple of interviews. This might have shocked her if she only knew warm and fuzzy Mel. But for her to file a restraining order months after they separated speaks to other motives.

  10. Roma says:

    Oksana should be PSA for rich, married dudes:

    Do not dip your penis into the crazy just to get a lil strange. And if you do, wrap it up for god’s sake.

  11. Alexa says:

    What is up with people believing that Oksana is the wicked one and poor Mr. Gibson has been victimized?! Mel seems like the dispicable one to me. From where I’m sitting, Mel is a delusional, arrogant, abusive person who’s got some bad karma coming his way.

  12. denise says:

    I don’t know about this one. However there was a blind item a while back about a huge hollywood actor that mistreated his wife. The consensus was that it was Mr. Mel Gibson. Not shocking , he seems a little off.

  13. Jeri says:

    Mel made his bed(s), now he can lie in it(them).

  14. denise says:

    @ Roma
    Do not dip your penis into the crazy just to get a lil strange.

    LOL!!!! What an original and hilarious remark.

  15. KsGirl says:

    Wow. She looks *beautiful* in those candids. Also, I agree with Alexa. We really have no proof this woman is slime. And we do have it with Mel.

  16. xxodettexx says:

    @bellaluna, sorry to hear about your past, but glad you are away from him! i went through the same though “luckily” for me, it was “only” 11 months and not years and no children ever came of our disastrous relationship

    it is never easy and it is always differnt for everyone and yet somehow always the same… i still get heart palpitations whenever i see his car around [or cars like his] or if i see guys like him… i even used to LOVE blue eyes but just cannot be with a guy with blue eyes anymore [i know, i know, it is mental and something i am still working through years later]

    that said, i think that oksana just knows how to play the gold-digger role to perfection… and considering the trash that mel is turning out to be, i just say karma’s a bitch!

  17. Annie says:

    Alexa-Well put. This dude is a racist, philandering, pig who left his wife and NINE KIDS for this woman. Yet, here we have all these WOMEN defending him.


  18. ams1 says:

    @ bella luna….i’m sorry to hear that. I lost an aunt & cousin to domestic abuse. its nothing to mess about, even if its b/c your baby daddy has more money then god.

  19. Lucinda says:

    I think Mel has become a complete whack job and is prone to fits of verbal abuse at the very least. Did he hit her? Who knows really. But I don’t think she is completely innocent either. The truth is somewhere in the middle I’m sure.

  20. CathyT says:

    This is still he said/she said. We don’t even know what Oksana has accused Mel of doing. He is accused of being violent, but it is not clear if she is accusing him of physical violence or just shouting angrily and insulting her singing. And now Mel has made counter accusations against Oksana in his legal filings. Extortion, perhaps? Oksana initiated this process. If they had disagreements over child custody she could have sought mediation. She knew the repercussions of seeking a restraining order against Mel Gibson and accusing him of “violence,” especially for their daughter. I think she loses her right to accuse Mel of playing dirty.

    Alexa, you call Mel a delusional, arrogant, abusive person. I cannot agree on any of those counts. Mel has always had the reputation of treating those around him kindly. We don’t know what he’s like in private, but he is no Sean Pean or Christian Bale when it comes to dealing with others. And when it comes to delusional, Oksana takes the cake. Have you followed her music career? No need to say anything more.

    Mel has done things deserving of criticism, but then so has Oksana. Just read what one of her former boyfriends had to say about her.

  21. bellaluna says:

    Yes, domestic abuse is very serious. It’s not a tool for vengeful women to get even with a man for an actual or perceived “wrong”.

    FYI, I am not defending Mel or his gold-digging side-dish: my issue is with women who falsely claim domestic abuse. Read about this gold-digger’s past with that former Bond actor, and maybe that’ll offer more insight as to her motives. Frankly, she leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    @ xxodettexx – Thank you. I’m sorry for you, as well. I hope you’re able to put it w-a-y in your past, though I know it’s difficult to do.

    @ ams1 – I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words.

  22. Whatever says:

    She really hasn’t said he hit her. She was probably extorting him and he flipped out verbally exploding and she is using that as leverage to try to get a huge pay day. He may be a lot of things, but I’ve never heard of him being violent, so it just doesn’t ring true to me.

    Personally, I think she is a gold digging whore with a payday from Dalton that was about to expire. She latched on to Mel as fast as she could, seeing dollar signs. The karma just may be her karma. She wanted to be linked to him and got knocked up to do it (sorry, I’ve always thought she got knocked up on purpose and I still do.) It’s just not turned out like she planned. Well, honey be careful what you wish for.

  23. Serenity says:

    @Whatever I also think she is a gold digging whore who got pregnant on purpose. And I know that Mel is not perfect, but I don’t believe anything that comes out of Oksana’s mouth.

  24. bite me says:

    mel its time to get a vasectomy

  25. daisyfly says:

    I don’t care if Mel’s a gigantic racist @sshole with a ballsack hanging from his chin which he uses as a speed bag. If this woman is accusing him falsely of domestic violence, she’s the bigger douche.

    If he did beat her, then obviously we know what to do with him and his career, movies, and anything else associated with him.

    I simply won’t say she’s telling the truth or she’s lying because I don’t know. The only thing I do know is that she’s a fame whore who’s obviously been visiting the same plastic surgeon as Octomom.

  26. Nicole says:

    I like “Mel the actor”, but “Mel the person” strikes me as a major asshole. He seems to have quite the temper, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the domestic abuse really happened.

    Also, I agree with Alexa. This is just like every rape incident that makes it into the news. People believe that the woman “brought it on herself by wearing inappropriate clothes”, or that she’s lying through her teeth to get money and/or ruin the guy’s rep. Why do people have thia kneejerk reaction to assume that the dude is the victim? Do you ever REALLY know what people are capable of?

    Reminds me of the high school I went to. A girl claimed that a popular science teacher sexually assaulted her, and almost the entire student body took the teacher’s side. She was yelled at, bullied, and had trash thrown at her all the time at school. It got to the point that she dropped out because she couldn’t deal with it. Later, the truth came out and everybody found out that the teacher DID rape her (there was security vid proof). Did anybody apologize to the girl? Did anybody try to help her get through this hard time? Nope. Reasons like this are why I hate people sometimes.

  27. CathyT says:

    @Whatever, you are right, there have never been any rumors of him being violent. The worst was when he smashed a paparazzi’s camera back in 1990 (when he was smashed himself after a night of drinking), and even then he immediately offered to pay for the camera.

    He has been arrested twice for DUI and was verbally abusive to the cops both times (he admitted this about his first arrest during his playboy interview), but he never actually tried to assault the cops.

  28. thepickle says:

    CNN’s article just says he filed a retraining order against her, that’s it. So he’s winning the PR war there. I had to check what Celebitchy is reporting to get the real story,haha. He seems like a jerk. She seems talented, intelligent and beautiful. I think he is too insecure to be with that caliber of woman.

  29. Rita says:

    What a lovely pair these two make. Mel throws away a life time of memories with his family for a gold digging tart. Since they both have restraining orders against the other, things should be just fine for both of them.

  30. carrie says:

    @cathyT:i don’t see the relation between Gibson’s story and Bale’s story(he yelled his mum & his DP in the same week)

    it’s very “he said! she said!” in a strange break-up!

  31. CathyT says:

    @Nicole, I’m sorry to hear that no one believed that the HS student was assaulted, but especially that they didn’t apologize afterwards.

    Rape accusations are tricky when there is the possibility that the sex might have been consentual. That’s why some college dorms require students to sign permission forms before a student of the opposite sex can sleep over.

    No question, domestic abuse is a serious problem. However, anyone involved in family law knows how false accusations are used as a weapon for child custody and/or money.

    Do I believe that NOTHING happened between Mel and Oksana? No. Mel has a temper, as you say, and he probably lost it. But that doesn’t mean that Mel beat her or hit her. People who know him describe him as a sweet guy.

    @thepickle “She seems talented, intelligent and beautiful. I think he is too insecure to be with that caliber of woman.”

    Really? Really??? I’ll grant you beautiful if only she hadn’t gone under the knife and over-indulged with implants. She is a little more intellegent and grounded than Rielle Hunter, but that isn’t saying much. But talented? I guess there’s no accounting for taste.

    Mel had a high caliber woman. He has been married to her for 30 years. Pity for him that he lost her.

  32. Cakes says:

    Gold-diggers of the world: take notes cuz Oksana is showin you how its done.

  33. mln says:

    I do think that Mel has shown behavior which would indicate an abuser…alcoholism, cheating on his wife of 30 years, anti semetic & sexist comments plus I remember hearing reports that his costars claimed he is obsessed with violence and sadistic.

    Based on circumstancial evidence I think there may be truth to the claims
    I just think Oksana isn’t the kind of woman who would accept that treatment and has been planning revenge.

  34. a says:

    @bellaluna & @xxodettexx: i am glad you are free of those people now. i know it can stay with you for a while. healing is a long process.

    as far as the article: it seems like my 3rd time saying it today… seems like many of today’s stories would be less dramatic if folks had used a condom. i can’t believe in these modern times that these famous folks can’t buy or send their assistants out to get them a supply of condoms. between the risk of STDs and child support, i just don’t get it.

  35. Feebee says:

    @ bite me… my thoughts exactly on the fact she’s not stupid and would have documented any little bruise etc for future use. And frankly I don’t believe a word of it but…

    I don’t know about it being time for him to bring her down. This prick brought it on himself and frankly it’s the least he deserves.

  36. gabs says:

    Russian Gold diggers are so good at pulling this stuff. Itll be interesting to see how it plays out

  37. sonola trip says:

    There has a been a lot evidence of bad behaviour and insanity by Mel Gibson, but in all these years there has never been a whiff of violence toward a woman. Never.

  38. Sincerity says:


    I guess well-to-do “trick daddies” are coming far and few in between in this raggedy economy. Your assessment seems to be “right on the money” simply because I can’t recall anyone except Oksana’s mother stepping up to vouch for her character. Considering her age, their should be many people besides her mother who would be more than willing to do so. Of course, if you’ve simply gone through life callously “using and discarding” people, no one will. There’s no doubt that Mel Gibson is quite a handful and he has many detractors but he’s done a great deal for Oksana and she’s simply “ungrateful and unwilling” to let go! More than likely, he’s been preparing for this “showdown” and she’s going to be sadly disappointed by the outcome. Being attractive does not entitle you to things YOU HAVE NOT EARNED! You can’t take things that were NEVER MEANT FOR YOU TO HAVE and LIVE IN PEACE! YOU CAN’T MAKE SOMEONE LOVE YOU WHEN THEY DON’T!

    It’s time for this “CONNIVING JEZEBEL” to “WOMAN UP” and see things as they are. Mel Gibson is not legally obligated to maintain her in a “palatial lifestyle” as if she were “a wife”. From all accounts, he’s taken very good care of Oksana and Lucia. He’s only obligated to support his child not her mother’s “delusional aspirations”. Punishing him for wanting to “move on” will be her “undoing”.

  39. mln says:

    @ sonala trip, just because there haven’t been reports of domestic violence it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen his wife may not have spoken up due to religion and children and the man is loaded he can pay people off.

  40. sonola trip says:


    Of course, but by that rationale anyone accused of something by one person is assumed guilty. I’m saying let’s just see a shred of evidence first before we label him a woman beater.

    All you’re me offering are hypotheticals. There is just as much evidence that he’s the Easter Bunny as there is of him being violent with women. We can get so distracted by hypotheticals that we can start to believe they’re true and condemn someone for something they actually didn’t do. Our legal system doesn’t allow for “maybe it’s possible” and for good reason.

  41. mln says:

    I am not saying he definitly did it I am saying however that Mel shares traits with abusive men he is a religious zealot, an anti semite, an alchololic and a womanizer. He was verbally abusive to the woman who arrested him it isn’t unbelievable that if drunk or irate he would show more erratic behaviour and become violent?
    this is a gossip site just like with any other item of gossip it may or may not be true and it is up for the judges to decide I have an opinion and if I am wrong so be it.

  42. L.Kennedy says:

    PLEASE, all of you need to get a life! Who are you to say you even know Mr. Gibson?? Some of you act as if you know him PERSONALLY. Listen to the news and everyone will know the truth. The problem with out society today is that everyone has to “know” the truth before the truth has been reported to authorities properly.

  43. canadianchick says:

    @bella and @xxo-sorry to hear what happened glad you made it out alive.

    Mel and Oksana are both cheating, low-life douches, I feel for their kid. The violence allegations..if he’s so blameless wonder why he wants a gag order. Meh, it’ll come out in the wash.

  44. Kiki says:

    Since you gals are talking about abuse… I have been in an abusive relationship for two years and I want out!
    I’m sorry to let it out here but I’m looking for advice… I can’t leave him, I feel like I can’t. Please

  45. Clarify says:

    I do not believe Mel was physically violent . In all the stories told about his weaker moments when drinking etc, I never read that he struck somebody. If he were the type to do that, he most certainly would have struck the police officer who arrested him for the DUI, when he was drunk.
    This is one disgusting gold digger pulling every trick out of her bag in order to squeeze more $$ from him.

  46. CathyT says:

    Have you read the article at People? This is ugly. Mel’s people say that in January “Oksana was completely out of control that day, screaming, and shaking Lucia like a ragdoll…Mel stepped in to stop her from injuring the baby…This is all an attempt to gain financial advantage over him.”

    Another source says that Mel was with all his kids on Father’s Day except Lucia because of Oksana withheld her, in violation a custody agreement signed in May. Oksana’s people refuse to speak about the incident in January but say that the custody agreement is unfair.

  47. Legend says:

    “What is up with people believing that Oksana is the wicked one and poor Mr. Gibson has been victimized?! Mel seems like the dispicable one to me. From where I’m sitting, Mel is a delusional, arrogant, abusive person who’s got some bad karma coming his way.”

    Totally agree.

  48. virgie says:

    oh sure. She just doesn’t have enough money and Mel isn’t putting up with her gold digging agenda. He has issues, but she is just too soft spoken, while she fluffs around getting pregnant by her movie star hopefuls. This is all about Oksana, to be sure. I can see her shaking the baby, which was always her meal ticket. Follow the money on this one!

  49. Debbie says:

    Sounds as though she has spat the dummy here.

    why wait until now, I have been surfing the net and on Yahoo.com.au entertainment page it clearly states she traveled with Mel in Jan/Feb at HER insistence.
    Also states she has been refusing Mel visitation rights to see the baby.

    So if she claims violence why travel with him? Why come out about this now, something does not add up here, I have the feeling she is out to destroy Mel, She’s jealous also of the relationship he still has with Robyn.

    They are good friends and Mel spent time with his kids at her house last weekend for Fathers Day,
    Mel has his problems, we all have No One is perfect BUT Mel has never hit or beaten any woman.

    Everyone knows about her past, It’s a way to try and get more money out of Mel.

    The only one caught up in this is the baby,

    After all he has done for her ,Fake Music career, funding it.

    There is only going to be one winner here, I mean lets face it, The only person to say anything nice about her is her Mother, Her past is out there and everyone knows just how sketchy that was.


  50. Uzi says:

    @Sincerity…Well said, and I second it!

    For those of you new to the Mel and Oksana debacle… Sincerity, Cathy T and Debbie have made some good comments. The four of us have been following all the drama as it unfolded throughout last year. I’ve been very critical of Mel, and yes, he has many faults; he’s an alcoholic, has mental issues and a bad temper. But Oksana is no babe in the woods. She is a professional mistress, with a reputation (and not a good one) for using men for money, social status and celebrity (one ex labeled her an “opportunist”). No one but her mother has ever had a nice word to say about her, and as I recall, mom told “People” that it was wonderful that her daughter had found someone to take care of her (sounds like a gold digger to me!). Oksana is delusional, demanding and self absorbed. She thought nothing of getting involved with a married man and “accidentally” getting pregnant. This time last year, when Mel was pouring money into her pathetic vanity project “music career” and lavishing her with attention and monetary gifts, she raved about what a gentleman he was. Something’s up, and this time I’m 100% behind Team Mel. I give him a lot of credit for maintaining a relationship with the baby; if it were up to me Oksana and the baby would get a big lump sum payment and two one way tickets to Moscow!

  51. sapphire says:

    Wait, we are missing stuff here. The TOPICS of both restraining orders-based on “sources”. The evasive “interview” specifically doesn’t accuse Gibson of abuse-it’s implied in responses to leading questions (“He’s still beating you, right?” Pure PR without any risk that she’s going to get nailed for slander.
    I am not defending the guy, who seems like a prize jerk. But she looks like a serious pro in the distortion department.

  52. gg says:

    Em, well, Sugartits, it all sounds so predictable. Why not try a normal relationship with a normal, unmarried guy next time, ay? AND NO MORE BABIES FOR YOU!

  53. Green Is Good says:

    Every time this gold-digger trick Oksana opens her mouth a LIE falls out. She’s gunning for some huge bank.

  54. Pat says:

    Holy moly, reading these comments is terrifying. Who are you women? Who needs men who are misogynists when women have women like you. Just because you don’t like his GF doesn’t mean she’s wrong. Just because YOUR unfortunate and heartbreaking abuse experience involved 24/7 monitoring doesn’t mean she couldn’t have traveled around and still be a victim of abuse and control. Not everyone’s abuse is a mirror image of yours. It’s true that anyone who falsely cries abuse is reprehensible because it diminishes the reality for true victims, but given everyone’s knowledge about his rage, hate and history is it really such a stretch to believe she was victimized. Are you all jealous of her lifestyle? Closet anti-semites? Lotta crazy in this board.

  55. Whatever says:

    Are you all jealous of her lifestyle? Closet anti-semites? Lotta crazy in this board.

    Or people just see through the crazy. That chick is a gold digging whore, not some innocent little victim. And she still has not said he “beat” her. She’s going for the payday and using this as a way to extort money out of him. Has this tramp never heard of work?? Banging rich guys, getting knocked up and extorting bags full of cash is NOT a career!

  56. TeeTee says:

    its all boils down to mony, she wants more…simple she’s a greedy cat.

    dinero, duckets, luchee, coins etc.

    Mel made his bed with this strange fruit, let the games begin.

  57. CathyT says:

    @Pat “given everyone’s knowledge about his rage, hate and history is it really such a stretch to believe she was victimized.”

    No, his history with women is why many of us are giving him the benefit of the doubt. Gibson was verbally aggressive to the cop that arrested him, but he didn’t physically attack him. He has never assaulted a photographer like Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin, or any number of other celebs. And keep in mind that Gibson hates paparazzi so much that he produced a film about a family man action star who murders paparazzi and gets away with it.

    It’s Oksana’s history of using men that damages her credibility. The latest news from TMZ is that she secretly recorded their arguments. Can we say extortion?

  58. Uzi says:

    @Pat…If Robyn had filed a restraining order against Mel I’d believe he was physically abusive. He may be a hot tempered misogynist, but there is no evidence of him being a physical abuser and in my mind he’s innocent until proven guilty on that charge. As Cathy T. just said, Oksana has no credibility, and she has had an agenda from day one. I for one am not jealous of her because I find women like her disgusting. Maybe this latest development began when she wanted him to spend Father’s Day with her and her meal ticket baby and he told her he planned on being with his other children at Robyn’s house. As I commented on another post, Oksana reminds me of the Glenn Close character in “Fatal Attraction:” “I will not be ignored!” When she is not the center of attention and getting her way there is hell to pay!

  59. angelika says:

    She is pathetic..What a shame for the baby..It is geting so ugly..

    Just read the story on TMZ

    Talk about a nasty piece of works, I could just imagine her running around the back yard throwing her self on the ground and all that carry on. Mel Wouldn’t want anything happening to an innocent little baby, I could just imagine her shaking the kid as well, So it would be what ANYONE would do step in and stop that situation. I have read several other reports and from previous guys who she has been involved with.

    Say the same thing has a temper on her apparently when things don’t go her way She really spits the dummy,

    As many others have pointed out her just because Mel has his problems I’m with team Mel on this one. OK he may have a mouth on him when he looses it but Mel would never hit a woman, Its not in him.

    If she was credible and people spoke well of her, no one ever has, Even when she came to the UK on her visa the people who employed her then never spoke highly of her.

    when a person with her mind set who is so self absorbed And puts herself before everyone else, who is delusional sorry but her past history speaks volumes to me and many others.

    According to the TMZ article the judge was not that happy with Oksana at the hearing for with holding information as well.

    Uzi , Guys

    I don’t believe it, UK Daily mail as another side to the story, She has told them It was her decision to leave Mel, She had to because it was for her saftey and for her children.

    She has also said Mel have never paid a cent towards Lucia, She has had to borrow money from Friends and live of Credit Cards.

    It shows a pick of her coming out of her lawyers office yesterday.

    Uzi It may pay you to get the link if you can find it and post it here.

    I find it hard to believe, I wonder what she’ll come up with next.

    @Uzi: Thanks for the compliment.

    Dear Fellow Posters:

    If I’m not mistaken, when the NE story broke about the sexual trysts between Mel Gibson and some porn star/producer, didn’t Oksana say in an interview that she would be willing to reconcile with Mel? If Mel Gibson was such “an abusive” deadbeat, why would she want him back? If their current child support/custody arrangement was so unfair, why did she sign it? She could have easily taken him to court just as he’s petitioning the court now and settled this matter without the unnecessary drama. I really feel sorry for little Lucia because it seems as if she’s being used as a pawn by a somewhat unstable, manipulative woman. I’ll pray for the both of them tomorrow during mass because as the primary custodial parent she needs “to chill out” and “collect her wits”.

  63. CathyT says:

    After reading her interview with the UK Daily Mail, her motivation is crystal clear. She wants more money. I wonder how much child support she gets for her son? Timothy Dalton didn’t procure a multi-million dollar house for her, that’s for certain.

    @Sincerity, in that interview right after the break-up she sounded open to a reconciliation. She also went out of her way to say that Mel is a loving father and that he was good with children. Now she tells the Daily Mail “I rescued my children and myself.”

    Well, we are so quick to make judgement. This is a women who just happened to sleep with two stars and get pregnant. If she was so focused on her singing career, she certainly fooled me by having two kids.
    Mel Gibson has what 8 kids and never once has there been any bad publicity regarding his parental duties.
    Lets play Devils Advocate. Mel’s craziness stems from this woman black mailing him. As he is a big star and cannot afford the bad publicity (lol) how do we not know she was not threatening him if he didn’t give her money. She’s already got a house and apparently $5M for her singing career……………has anyone heard her music!
    I say shame on her if this is what she set out to do and shame on him if he did what he is accused of. They both need to get off the radar, Im sick of reading about it!
