The Los Angeles DCFS is definitely looking into whether Mel’s child with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is in danger and needs to be taken into protective custody.

The bitter battle between Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva got a whole lot nastier today — with the report of tapes of Mel’s threatening racist rant against his ex  — and HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that child services is set to investigate the case.

“The Department of Children and Family Services is absolutely going to look into this,” an DCFS insider says.

Mel’s vile tirade against his baby mama, in which he threatened to burn down her house and told her she would get “raped by n***ers,” comes in the wake of both the Oscar winner and Oksana filing restraining orders against each other. Oksana, 40, also claimed that the Braveheart star punched her in the face in a fit of rage, knocking out two of her teeth.

However, according to sources  connected with Mel, Oksana actually shook their baby Lucia “like a ragdoll,” on Jan. 6, 2010, during an argument between the couple at their home. Oksana took the baby, ran around the backyard, threw herself on the ground, came back inside the house with Mel following her and trying to protect the baby, according to TMZ.

The insider says that DCFS will dispatch two investigators to Oksana’s house and ask to see the couple’s 8-month-old daughter, Lucia. From there they will interview Mel and then will determine if further action is required.

RadarOnline reports that Oksana felt she was forced to tape Mel, 54, after he made a series of death threats against her, but our source says that if DCFS determines that Oksana taped the conversations, she could be the one held liable.

“They may decide that both parents are unsuitable and then give the baby to a grandparent,” the DCFS insider says. “This has become a real mess.” The insider tells us that DCFS’s red flag is raised quickly when a public figure is involved in a case of potential child endangerment. “A case sensitive unit takes over immediately.”

I read somewhere these tapes were recorded around the same time as his jew rant. Since then he could have been medicated, he actually just sounds like a really mean speaking drunk to me. Either way, they hear him say something nasty to his gf, and they swoop in…but when he says she actually SHOOK the baby..no one does anything??

Dear God Mel, please do yourself a favor and get on some medication. A man your age should have more self control than that. What’s the problem? Anxiety? Depression? Panic Attacks? Well there are meds for that.

yes. in california you cannot tape somebody without their consent. i don’t know how that will play out here, but i believe it’s a criminal offense to do it.

Mel Gibson’s problems aren’t as complicated as they seem. He may be bipolar, have panic attacks, whatever, but his major problem is untreated alcoholism and possibly substance abuse.

Regardless of his other problems, if he doesn’t seek treatment for his addiction to alcohol, he will continue on to his ultimate destination – self-destruction – which he will reach sooner rather than later.

I’m a journalist and interviewed Mel Gibson…during a period of sobriety. He told me he had just quit smoking, and yet he displayed none of the crankiness most people do when they withdraw from nicotine. Even so, maybe because he was sober, Gibson was not cranky with me but polite, informative and didn’t dodge any of my questions.

If he ever gets and stays sober, all his RUI (Racism Under the Influence) rants will end and all will be forgiven – especially if his next movie is a commercial success.
