Oksana Grigorieva: Mel Gibson could only get hard by beating me


Mel Gibson has already conceded that he slapped Oksana, and now he’s got a new charge to answer: Oksana claims that Mel Gibson used to beat her while they were having sex. Technically, though, they weren’t in the middle of making sweet love because Mel couldn’t get hard. And the only way he could get hard, according to Oksana, was if he beat her. I swear, this is like an episode arc of Law & Order: SVU. Mariska Hargitay is going to say “Who’s the bitch now, Mel?” while Christopher Meloni puts Mel into a headlock in the holding cell.

TMZ has learned … Oksana Grigorieva has just made an explosive allegation under oath that she never before made — that Mel Gibson beat her during sex.

Sources tell TMZ … during Oksana’s deposition Tuesday in her custody war with Mel … she testified that Mel had problems performing and the way he got aroused with her was to beat her.

The claim is as curious as it is shocking, since we’re told Oksana never uttered a peep about such violence in her multiple interviews with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

Oksana has claimed that Mel struck her on January 6, but there is no other allegation of physical violence in the court file — much of which has been reviewed by TMZ — or with law enforcement.

Should we bash Oksana for not bringing this up before now, thus giving this tidbit the whiff of implausibility? Why do I even ask? I know some of you Mel-lovers/Oksana-haters will yell at me, but I’m buying Oksana’s story. Because Mel just seems like he would be impotent, right? I feel like that explains so much of rage. It also explains why he always sounded so turned on in those audio recordings where he’s screaming at Oksana. The only thing that can get him hard at this point is screaming slurs and punching women.

    He is the most disgusting person in the world.

  2. The Bobster says:

    Oksamom obviously doesn’t have any oral skills.

  3. Squirtle says:

    Oh Gawd! UGH! I really can’t believe these two people brought a life into this world…so depressing!

  4. Whatever! says:

    Damn this b*&^% is relentless. She stops getting press for a minute and she comes out with a left hook. Girl is severly disturbed. I know, I know, bad mel he’s so awfull……blah, blah, blah. i think this whole thing is over, and her coming out with this just shows her lack of class. PS Mel Rocks! He’s made some of the greatest movies of all time. I don’t care about his personal bad desicions. We’ve all made them and have been fortunate not to have them plastered all over the world. The good lord says, don’t judge less the be judged.

  5. Hautie says:

    Oh please.

    I really wanted to believe her. But she has over played her hand in this game.

    Now he is impotent.

    So in order to get impregnated by him. She allowed him to beat on her till she finally got knocked up?

    She should have took that 12 million(?), the new car, the new house along with child support when she has the chance.

    Now she just comes off as a very bad liar.

    And all she is going to end up with, is a busted down 92′ Corolla, living in the Valley, in a ratty apartment.

  6. Squirtle says:

    ^ Road Warrior is one of my favs…but nevertheless, I think BOTH parties are freakin insane in the membrane!

    Attn: Author of this “Article”

    I’ve got a bridge to sell you

  8. JRenee says:

    It not that the beating during sex would surprise me, it’s just that she has spent countless hours being interviewed by authorities and this never once came up?
    Racist, angry, homophobe and famewhore.
    SMH, what next?

  9. Mshuffleupagus says:

    Is that…not what’s supposed to happen…?

  10. David says:

    He is a sick gross asshole but I call bullshit on her.

  11. Kim says:

    This claim was made in a deposition and since TMZ is Team Mel. His people leaked the info.Mel is Anti Semitic, homophobic, racist who admitted to slapping a woman. ENJOY HIS FILMS

  12. Justez says:

    @ David
    Agreed. I do believe he probably hit her a few times. But I don’t believe this story.
    She is either doin this for publicity or more sympathy, which she doesn’t seem to be getting. Well, she is getting publicity.

  13. AngelMay says:

    Gross.I believe this. I also believe that if the price was right, she’d still be putting up with it. Asshole vs golddigger. Fair fight.

  14. searching4grace says:

    mel gibson has turned out to be someone completely different from his public persona. i don’t like him and i can’t stand to watch anything with him or his crazy eyes in it. that being said i can’t understand why she wouldn’t have brought this out earlier. i realize that if true it would be as humiliating for her as for him since she stayed with him and in that situation so long. the whole thing has turned into a carnival atmosphere and i’m tired of the whole thing. good luck to their lawyers, the police, the judge and them. i hope everything works out best for their daughter.

  15. Leticia says:

    I dislike both of them and pity her daughter.

  16. Goober says:

    She obviously just married and had a kid to get his money. She is a typical Russian woman who looks for a man in the US to get married have a kid by luring him with sex only to turn cold and calculating afterward. I think she knew he had a temper and totally played her passive-aggressive games until she could get him angry enough to do something to incriminate himself.
    She has Gold-Digger written all over her.
    I think she is despicable.
    Go MEL!

  17. Whatever says:

    Sounds like things aren’t going well for her in court, so she is trotting out new allegations. Or that paps have been ignoring her and she wants more attention. Sorry, that one doesn’t fly. I know most people here think that just because he hit her, every word out of her mouth is liquid gold and needs to be believed, but I think he hit her AND she is a lying, conniving, gold digging whore. Both are true. And it is a shame for that little girl.

  18. someone says:

    Why did she stay with him if he was such an abuser????? Waiting to see how much money she could squeese out of him??? Why didn’t we hear of this latest ploy for cash long ago when she was talking to the police???

  19. Rita says:


    Forgive me but I think I have to take a break from Celebitchy and here’s why.

    When I saw this thread I subliminally imagained Mel holding a little furry “Dong Puppet” that mouthed the words “I can only get hard if Mel beats me”.

    It’s true and yes, I’ve become a very disturbed person.

  20. blinkblue says:

    Since he first showed up back in the 80’s I never liked Mel Gibson. Not as an actor, not as a person.
    Now I think he’s the devil.

  21. javagirl1 says:

    Yes Mel Gibson probably is impotent. But if this story was true, wouldn’t his ex-wife have had some bruises through the years? They have like 20 kids. I think if he was into beating during sex, he would have always been that way.
    Whatever he’s still a total douche.

  22. susieqinBA says:

    I believe it. Mel has serious psychological issues that the tapes give a glimpse of. I do believe sex is one of his serious issues put it together with his outlook on women it goes hand in hand. Mel can’t perform as a normal human being and he can’t have normal sex because he is seriously “screwed up in the head”. He can’t have a healthy relationship with a woman. His violent rage is that he is fighting against himself because he doesn’t know what is real anymore.

  23. fabgrrl says:

    Hm, I don’t know about EVERY time. I’d guess that one time, drunken Mel couldn’t perform, and in a rage started slapping Oks around, because it was obviously HER fault. He then felt like a big strong man and did the deed.

    This woman is obviously a gold digger grifter, but no one deserves that.

  24. lucy2 says:

    I don’t think she’s the most trustworthy witness, but at the same time, at this point I’m willing to believe just about anything when it comes to Mel.

  25. photo jojo says:

    Ok, Oksana – seriously, that falls under the category of TMI!

  26. javagirl1 says:

    @fabgrrl: I like your theory!

  27. hatsumomo says:

    Im the kinda Celebitchy reader that would never ask for a ban really, but can we get one for these two? Or two bans, one for all Mel Gibson stories and another for all Oskana stories. I just dont like it, it puts all the readers on eggshells and it serves no real purpose. And I havent even read the actual story, just looking at the header pic on the home page gives me a bad feeling.

  28. sharylmj says:

    WOW… my opinion of this man has changed to much. I used to love him and his movies and now I get sick when I look at him. I’m not saying I believe this story, but with everything in the media about him… it’s so ugly.

  29. Moreaces says:

    OH DAMN!!!!!!!!!!

  30. cici says:

    i like the SVU comparison in the post. i watch that show and that is so spot on. LMAO

  31. Eve says:

    Could be true. But to be perfectly honest, I just don’t care anymore. I’d love not having to see his face again in my life.

  32. Obvious says:

    I’m with Fabgirl, it most likely happed in a drunken sex fit. when my man i drunk he does some weird ass sh*te to get hard-but beating me i not one of them.

    OR….Alternate Theory, they were engaged in SM or something and she’s now trotting it our and forgetting to mention sh was a willing partner in that.

    I do not like Oksana, i don’t believe 80% of what she says and i believe about 1% of what Mel says.

    The truth lies somewhere in that shady murky water in between, but i hop both re ruled unfit to have Lucia!

  33. JenJen says:

    I never thought his wife was very attractive but thought there must be a reason they stay together and they were a happy family. With all this coming out it really makes that seem like it was more of a business deal too.

  34. sapphire says:

    Kaiser, are you by chance posting to stir the pot?

  35. KJ says:

    “PS Mel Rocks! He’s made some of the greatest movies of all time. I don’t care about his personal bad desicions. We’ve all made them and have been fortunate not to have them plastered all over the world. The good lord says, don’t judge less the be judged.”

    I’m judging and judging hard because I’m not a racist or a homophobe so I’ve got plenty of big stones to hurl at that psychopaths glass house. Road Warrior was awesome, but let’s dry out our panties long enough to be able to separate the actor from the person. He’s not a good person. At all. He’s a crazy, disturbed bigot and wife beater.

    Oksana is just as insane, but she wasn’t Mad Max so fuck her.

  36. susieqinBA says:

    Mel’s marriage was never “happy” that has been all PR stuff and that is why everything is coming like it’s doing – the “bed covers are being pulled back”. Keep in mind a wife/kids/family LOOKS GOOD to make YOU believe he’s a great family man. There were several times Robyn wanted to leave Mel; he’s had affairs practicly all their married life, Robyn was not sexually satisfying to him because she was the “wife” and sex with her was only for PR to have kids to make himself look good. Mel has terrorized his family for many years and everything will come out; there has been domestic disputes in his family but Robyn/kids have been “forced” not to say anything – Mel might never had “hit” Robyn (he probably chest bumped her many times and threatned her) he just verbally/emotionally abused her/kids. EVERYTHING WILL COME OUT!

  37. KJ says:

    OH! And it just dawned on me. So Mel’s ex wife has never alleged abuse, right? And Mel really didn’t start having this public meltdown and spiral into craziness until relatively recently in his career.

    Let me say that while I think Mel is the scum of the earth today, I don’t know if he’s always been quite this out of control. I think as time went on, he got crazier and more violent and belligerent. That’s probably the reason that Robin (that’s her name right?) never had any bruises are alleged abuse. I don’t think he ever beat her. I don’t think his domestic disputes started until Oksana. I’m not saying she asked for it. I would never, EVER say that, not even about a woman that repulsive. But I will say this. I think Mel broke. He’s always been off kilter and crazy, but somewhere I think the flood gates burst open and he went off the deep end, and it coincides with his affair/divorce/new church/baby debacle. I think there’s a catalyst somewhere around the time he started cheating on his former wife, which is a long, vague timeline I know, but I think when the marriage was getting the final nails in the coffin, Mel really went off the rails. Just look at him. Completely dead behind the eyes.

  38. Jen says:

    I believe that he’s impotent. Does it take him beating her to get turned on? I find this doubtful. But if it is true she is as disgusting as he is because she probably yelled, “Slap me harder!” while his sperm rammed their way into her egg. She is so gross. And so is he.

  39. December says:

    Sorry, but I’m calling this BS. Not a Mel Gibson fan, but it’s kind of late in the game to be saying this, isn’t it?

  40. bored says:

    “Im not a homophobe or a racist so I can judge hard and hurl stones” Errr… I think you missed the point darling. I think that wins the award for stupidest thing I have ever heard someone say.

  41. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @Hautie, ITA…

    That must have been one hell of a night when she got pregnant.

  42. OXA says:

    Since day one Harvey @ TMZ has had his nose up Braveheart’s kilt. If Mel was filmed slitting Oksana’s throat TMZ would still blame her for making him do it.
    I believe her, IMO it goes along with his ragaholic narcissism.

  43. the original bellaluna says:

    They’re both a$$holes. Neither is what they present themselves to be. Both will do or say whatever they feel they must to makes themselves look better, despite what it will do to their daughter. I don’t care for either one of them, I don’t believe either of them, and they both disgust me equally.

    That is all.

  44. Anti-icon says:

    Just another sickness in a whole mess of them — between two really messed up people — I’m beginning to think Baby Lucia belongs with foster parents somewhere in the middle of the country — after taking an assumed name.

  45. julie says:

    The sad thing, okay ONE of the sad things, is that I will bet in less than year, if it hasnt happened already there will be some other woman willing to do just about anything to be with Mel Gibson. She will brush off the stories and say oh he LOVES me, and then will be so embarrassed when the same stuff happens to her, that she wont tell anyone. He is a very rich celebrity and women will make excuses for ugly shlubs so imagine there will be women lined up to be with him. OMG, its MEL GIBSON!! sometimes i just dont understand women and the things they will do just to HAVE A MAN! Its so pitiful and sad. No man is worth it.

  46. craigc says:

    Oh – SNAP!!!

  47. Hmmm says:

    This fits with his sadistic porn interpretation of the Passion of Christ.

  48. Salina says:

    Please give custody to robyn already. Neither of these two deserve it

  49. GG says:

    Ever hear of Viagra, Mel?

  50. Green Is Good says:

    *eye roll* So she waited all this time to drop this bombshell why? Mel isn’t coughing up enough dough? Please. Mel is a bastard, but this chick is a hard-core, conniving gold-digger.

  51. beth says:

    i always thought mel had some mental as well as anger management issues, and i really wouldnt be surprised if it came to this. how turned on you are by something when it comes to sex, esp. when it deviates so much from the norm, is heavily influenced by what those triggers mean to you. i dont know if im making much sense, im trying to explain something here – some people are turned on by BDSM because they enjoy humiliating and being humiliated – if that’s even possible, what else isnt?

    funny how the human mind works, and the longer you live, the more surprised youd be at the things youre capable of desiring, sexually speaking.

    but true or not, i dont understand oksana’s need to publicise this.
    famewhoring much?

    go tell the authorities, the mental health professionals, someone who can actually help one or both off you, if you absolutely must get this off your chest, but this kiss-and-tell act is unbelievably demeaning and disrespectful.

    imagine if mel went to the press, and said something like oksana couldnt get turned on without watching horses-and women-have sex porn, first, or something completely privately fetish-ic. that’s likely 99.9% untrue, but the truth here isnt my point.

    i feel sorry for celebrities sometimes, and understand completely why some of them would be defensively private. i would be, too, if i were one.

  52. Rosanna says:

    @GG Viagra can’t be used if one also uses (and abuses!) alcohol ;;)

  53. Az says:

    Oh for fuck’s sake. I have no doubt Mel Gibson is a racist, homophobic, drunk misogynist. I will never be able to watch his movies the same way again. There is no excuse for his behavior. Let’s get that straight, okay? However, this Oksana person is shady, a gold digger and an attention whore. They deserve each other. And I would rather not read about either of them.

  54. dread pirate cuervo says:

    So she’s saying Mel beat her to get hard, but is she saying she wasn’t OK with that? I have a feeling she signed up for this, at least in the beginning & then it got out of hand & Mel stopped respecting the safe word.

  55. icantbelievethis says:

    ‘this is like an episode arc of Law & Order: SVU. Mariska Hargitay is going to say “Who’s the bitch now, Mel?” while Christopher Meloni puts Mel into a headlock in the holding cell.’

    Please make that happen. That line is my favorite from SVU.

    ‘Also, it didn’t take 3 years for her to figure this out, if it is true, so obviously she was ok with it.’

    Yep all abused people who are afraid to leave are okay with it. Its fun stuff for us. After all it is our fault and maybe if we weren’t ‘classless skanks’ they wouldn’t hit us, right?

  56. Chris says:

    Do you think it would be possible for a gold digger like Oksana to fall in love with someone? And if so I wonder what kind of person she’d fall for? Once she’s got her hands on Mel’s millions and she has total financial independence I guess we’ll find out.

  57. Liana says:

    They BOTH suck. Both of them are vile people.

  58. nnn says:

    That’s why he is so obsessesed about being blooooowwwwwed before hitting the jaccuzzi, cause he deseeeeeeeeeerve it.

    He needs extra stimulation all the time and gets frustrated and mad if he hasn’t got his little ‘appetizer’ on time.

  59. Jayna says:

    I really tried to back this woman because Mel is certifiable and I believe he could hurt someone some day. But she is nutty, also. He ended it, not her. She should have taken the money and shared custody and moved on because she has played this into the ground with comments like this this late in the game and is losing credibility daily, and now nobody cares, even if he chased her around with an icepick. LOL They dislike her so much, they wouldn’t care.

  60. Jason says:

    I have no sympathy for either of them.

  61. Vi says:

    eeew. i totally buy it too. i think mel is disgusting and don’t have any problem believing this.

  62. K-MAC says:

    I bet there is still a ton of stuff that we don’t know. If he wants this to go away then he ought to pay her and be done with it. Mel Gibson is a disgusting man, and I do not know why she is telling the public this information now, but I don’t doubt that this happened. I bet he did worse than just hit her during sex too.

  63. Katija says:

    @ Goober

    “She is a typical Russian woman who looks for a man in the US to get married have a kid by luring him with sex only to turn cold and calculating afterward.”

    I wonder what would have happened if you would have written “a typical Black or Mexican woman.” I have a feeling you would have been banned.

    But no, who am I kidding, you’re completely right. Every day I just sit in a red room drinking vodka and eating caviar from a small wooden bowl, calculatingly browsing personal sections, vaiting for rich American man to rescue me from this hellish life of graduate school and research papers.

  64. beth says:

    @julie: sometimes i just dont understand women and the things they will do just to HAVE A MAN! Its so pitiful and sad. No man is worth it.

    oh, this is so true, woman.

  65. Debbie says:

    You have to be kidding me, and we are meant to believe her because………….

    Really now she is clutching at straws, She has constantly lied told different stories ran to the media with made up fabricated stories now this.

    You know when Domestic Violence Orgs in America and refuse to have her as a spokes person or having her working for them that really speaks volumes.

    She knows she is in trouble with not keeping her mouth shut and now its this bull shit

    Believe me her Karma is just around the corner


  66. Megatrona says:


  67. Laurie says:

    The more she talks and keeps coming up with these new revelations….the less and less I believe anything she has said.

  68. KJ says:

    @bored – can you explain why to me exactly? Because if that wins the award for stupidest thing you’ve ever read, you probably don’t read that much.

    “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” is statement about hypocrisy. You shouldn’t judge people for doing things that you do in the privacy of your own home simply because no one knows you do it. Mel is a racist and a homophobe and psycho. That’s his glass house, not mine, so I’m free to judge him and call him as such until it’s proven otherwise because I am neither a racist nor a homophobe and although I’m a bit crazy, I’m definitely not on Mel’s spectrum. Yes, the saying also means judge not lest ye be judged, so in the grand scheme should I judge Mel for his ANY transgressions? No, that’s for his fictional Jew-hating God to do. But in the celebitchy scheme of things, I can judge all I want and you can’t say shit to me because we are all on this site for one reason – talking dirt on celebs. So please, do explain to me why my comment was so dumb when it’s so clearly in line with the at least part of the thing thinking behind that cliched saying, because I would LOVE to hear your explanation. Something tells me it’ll be the stupidest thing I’ve read.

  69. piedlourde says:

    I caught Lethal Weapon 2 on TV the other night. DAMN YOU, Mel Gibson, DAMN YOU TO HELL for ruining those movies for me. Fond childhood memories wrecked.

    Oh well, I still have you, Bruce Willis.

  70. Shay says:

    What career does Oksana have? What did she ever have but eye wealthy men, sleep with them, be impregnated (Timothy Dalton).
    She is the standard whore.
    End of story.
    She is talking to earn more money. She put her son through the crap, sacrificing his wellbeing for her lust for money. What does that say?
    She is equally as disgusting as Mel Gibson. No, I have no sympathy for her.

  71. Levi says:

    “Robyn was not sexually satisfying to him because she was the “wife” and sex with her was only for PR to have kids to make himself look good.”

    That’s what I heard – he forced her to go along with the happy family image before consorting with countless prostitutes, all of whom were also sworn to secrecy.

    Oksana maybe money-hunting, but some of the stereotypes about Russian women on this page are depressing. Hollywood attracts users of many races and both genders. Nevertheless, her arrangement with Timothy Dalton was one of convenience, for obvious reasons.

  72. Kath says:

    “Road Warrior was awesome, but let’s dry out our panties long enough to be able to separate the actor from the person.”

    That made me literally LOL, thanks for that!

    If I were her, I wouldn’t have admitted to getting beaten for hard-ons until I absolutely had to. I would have thought long and hard (no pun intended) before letting the entire world know about it. Just being in the same room with that much perversion is gross, but I’d be ashamed to admit I let it go on. So yeah, I believe her, and I don’t think it’s fishy that she waited.

  73. Hakura says:

    I too believed her claims that came before this. That he’s a ‘drunk homophobic misogynistic’ SOB, who hit her on more than one occasion.

    But I’m also calling ‘BS’ on this claim. It’s just too convenient, and badly timed. But I agree that his movies have been forever ruined for me.

  74. munchies says:

    people will hate me too but I believe Oksana

  75. fwozbo says:

    I agree with #48.

  76. orion70 says:

    @ Katija, you are completely right. I can only imagine the backlash, and yet this was just a blip.

  77. Jazz says:

    That just gave me visuals I did not need.

  78. angelika says:

    @katija., well said..

  79. euroschmuck says:

    I knew he was a sadist, I just knew it! with this face he should act in some cheap adult movies becasue that is all he can ever film again.

    My first thought was also “why bring this up now” because it kind of takes some credibility from Oksana’s statements. But on the second thougt: it is not like she can stop now, the wheels are in motion and they are both public persons and she has to continue defending herself. And maybe before nobody asked her this question in such way that she had to admit that?

  80. Levi says:

    “My first thought was also “why bring this up now” because it kind of takes some credibility from Oksana’s statements.”

    It’s not outside the bounds of possibility she could be working with other Hollywood players to bring Mel down. Hollywood’s known him to be a racist, sexist, anti-semite for decades…why now?

    If you look at some of his political views, they probably annoy people in High PLaces. He’s an opponent of the Federal Reserve, for example.

  81. bagladey says:

    OMG, Oksana grows grosser by the minute. Just nasty. Ugh, yuk.

  82. Sandy says:

    She had to have some indication of this early on in the relationship, and yet she had a baby and moved in with him.
    Sheer genius

  83. Levi says:

    Sandy: That’s the mark of a blackmailer – get close to powerful people with a lot of problems and put them under your thumb.

    “Mother of Mel’s love child ‘in plot to shake Gibson down for millions’By Caroline Graham

    “‘She wanted to destroy star after break-up and asked me to join extortion scheme’, claims other ex.

    “The mother of Mel Gibson’s love child set out to purposely ‘shake him down for money’, it was claimed last night by another former lover of the film superstar.Speaking exclusively to The Mail on Sunday, Violet Kowal, 27, alleges that Oksana Grigorieva planned to ‘extort millions’ from Gibson soon after their break-up in April and that she was invited to join in the plot.”

    “Because Mel just seems like he would be impotent, right? ”

    so right. no 50-something man can drink this much, smoke a pack a day, do drugs, etc. and not have it affect his dong. he looks so unhealthy that i’m amazed he can breathe, much less get a boner.

  85. June says:

    Wow. I’m sure it’s true. (sits back and watches sh** storm)

  86. Feebee says:

    Hmmm, she has her ups and downs in the pr game doesn’t she. Sometimes plays it really really well. Other times a big Fail. I believe the possibility he beat her during sex. Whether it was part of a game I don’t know.

    But we don’t know how much of this whole thing is a game. When this much money and fame is involved the whole thing gets skewered. She may be an innocent victim of terrible domestic violence. She could also be a person who has set up the situation and was quite prepared to lose a tooth and suffer a few bruises for eventually millions of dollars. Whatever the truth I don’t think this case has done anything to help the cause of reducing domestic violence and am not surprised to hear the DV organisations don’t want anything to do with her.

  87. Levi says:

    I think she’s been working as an escort – I’m not suggesting she’s a prostitute – but that she’ll provide a “front” in false relationships – gay men who need a partner.

    Somehow she became involved with Gibson along the way. TBH I think it would be a challenge for any woman to avoid getting greedy once they were having the baby of a man with 300 million dollars in the bank or whatever.

    Mel was probably smitten while she represented novelty to her, but now he’s lost so much he’s bitter.

    Sadly I think Feebee’s right: the one certainty for victims of domestic violence is that justice is now further off than it was before.

    I don’t believe a word she says and don’t understand why so many of you are willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.

    If I were in this situation and a man was treating me the way she is acussing Mel of doing:

    1. The moment he walked out the door, I’d call 911

    2. I’d call a locksmith and change the locks

    3. I’d call the phone company and change my phone number

    4. I’d get an order of protection the next day:

    5. I’d get an airplane ticket back to Russia,where he could never find me or my child

    6. I would only have made one tape.
    Wouldn’t have stayed around to make tape 2, tape 3, tape 4, tape 5.

    7. I hit back.

    8. I would have burnt his house down.

    9. Tapes would not have been leaked to the media. They would have been given to the DA so that he could have pressed charges for domestic abuse.

    10. After these events had taken place, I would not have continued to travel, socialize, visit, talk, have $ex with…etc with Mel Gibson.

    11. After $ex and hitting , when he fell asleep, I would have snuck away.

    This woman is a liar! There is a reason she has gone through 67 lawyers.

    I cannot believe all these sick comments by people who think they know what Gibson is like in the bedroom or what his marriage was like. You people are evil.

  90. Trashaddict says:

    I go with the theory that Mel and Oksana had some S&M going in their relationship, maybe she even got him into the idea, and now this is where it’s gone. Maybe Robyn knows that being quiet is the best possible thing she could do, because Mel is an asshole and the karma will take care of itself. If only more people in Hollywood knew how to not open their stupid mouths.
    But whatever the true story is, I’m sorry we still get ignorant comments about why domestic violence victims don’t leave their abusers. It seems some posters have not been paying attention to the literature or the media about how alone and powerless a victim can feel and be. And the real truth is that the time you finally leave is the most dangerous. I am in awe of victims who manage to take the first step to get out, what an amazing act of courage.

    I just came across an interesting comment about Mel on the IMDB:

    “If you can come back from strangling Oprah and leading a cult, then Mel can come back to from this to act.

    If you can come back from underage rape charges as a director, then Mel can come back from this to direct.

    Society is very fickle.”

    I do believe only that Mel is bad in bed and has a problem get aroused, but i don´t buy story about beating. Why she didn´t mention something like that during her questioning about DV? It would be relevant. We should wait for other facts. I bet that Mel must be furious now, but he definitely deserves all this sh.t.

    I believe someone mentioned this earlier up the thread, but doubtless she saved back some ammunition to use in case she needed it as this is drawn out. Mel is powerful and no doubt is putting up a hell of a fight. She needs every little bit of dirt she can use – no matter how humiliating it is for her. And obviously it is humiliating. I can’t believe some of the crap being said about her and Russian women in general in this thread. People should hang their heads.

    This reminds Gibson´s view a lot.
    He is typical abuser.Let´s hope that he will charged.

  95. Trippin says:

    I believe it. Sometimes abused women keep things in for years until they’re ready to share or maybe never are ready to share and keep it a secret which is very unhealthy. Can you imagine what else these other Hollywood abusers get up too like Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn? There’s a lot of abusive men out there famous and not famous. Gibson should retire from Hollywood, go back to Aussieland and work on a farm or something and have no female contact. Put the bottle down Mel and your thing back in your pants. It’s a disasterous combination
