Exclusive! Expert on Mel Gibson’s Tirade Against Oksana: 'Physical Violence is Very Likely'

070110_mel_gibson_racist_544_XXXXMel Gibson’s baby daughter and ex-girlfriend could be in physical danger in the wake of the actor’s explosive outburst.

An expert tells HollywoodLife.com that LA’s Department of Children’s and Family Services is right to be concerned about the safety of Mel Gibson’s daughter, Lucia, saying that the actor’s threatening rant could lead to violence.

“It is very possibly dangerous for Mel to be around his child,” says Rebecca Roy, a Beverly Hills-based psychotherapist who works with the entertainment industry. “I would be very concerned if I were the child’s mother. Any time you have verbal abuse to this level, you have to think that physical abuse is very likely.”

RadarOnline reported earlier today that Mel’s ex-girlfriend and baby mama Oksana Grigorieva recorded the profanity-laden outburst after he made a series of death threats against her. In the audio recording the 54-year-old can be heard calling the singer a “whore” and a “c**t” and telling her that she could get “raped by n***ers.”

It’s not the first time Mel has been accused of a racist outburst — when he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in 2006, Mel unleashed a tirade of obscenities and anti-Semitic remarks at the arresting officers. The Oscar winner, who admitted to battling alcohol problems, later apologized.

But it would seem that an apology was not enough to change his behavior — or deeply held beliefs. “You don’t come out with statements like that if you don’t harbor racist tendencies,” Roy believes. “This way of thinking didn’t just happen yesterday.”

Roy speculates that Mel’s rant is linked to him falling off the wagon again. “It’s possible his drinking has escalated to the point where his outbursts are more frequent,” she says.

Both Mel and Oksana, 40, have filed restraining orders against each other, with Oksana saying that Mel struck her, knocking out two teeth, and Mel claiming that he had to stop her from shaking their 8-month-old daughter.

“There is a possibility that neither parent is fit to raise this child,” Roy says. “DCFS should be investigating this case; they have to consider the safety of the child first.” In fact, Hollywoodlife.com confirmed that LA’s Dept of Children and Family Services absolutely plans to investigate.

As for what Mel and Oksana can do to resolve this bitter battle, Roy has one word: therapy.
“I recommend that Mel get some anger management counseling, therapy, and become sober, and that she gets therapy and support. Being subjected to an outburst like this would be devastating to anybody, especially a new mother. But they need to think of their child first.”

I know he’s got some issues, but I don’t believe for a second he laid a hand on her in a violent manner!

Mel has a crazy temper for sure, but this chick is a money grubber. She seeks out celebrities/actors. She claims to be broke, but she has a child by another successful actor. I also don’t like how she says Mel left her with nothing. He PAID for her million dollar house and bought her a car! She is fake and I’m sure he got frustrated. No excuse for his behavior, but her taping him is just sick! If you love someone, even if things go wrong you don’t embarrass them or expose them. Secondly, she’s not all that! UGH! I suppose this is Mel’s karma for cheating on his wife. What comes around goes around and you always get it back worse that what you gave it. It’s so much easier to live w/ integrity.

From the content of those tapes it’s clear that Mel isn’t who the public knows. I know he’s an alcoholic and it’s not hard to believe he’s violent. I wouldn’t let him near my daughter. At some point a woman needs to take a stand and protect her child especially against someone this unstable and powerful. I’m sure he had been threatening her since the first time he hit her.. Not to go forward and to keep it hush. And like most abused women they want to believe a man will change. It’s clear she’s finally woken up. You bet I’d be protecting my child from a man who even speaks that way!

You say she’s a money grubber? You’re just a hater whose most likely unattractive and jealous. Shame on you for not understanding your fellow woman.

mivhelle… have you heard the tape? no has to my knowledge. she is a money grabber. why go thru the trouble of taping some one allthe time unless your looking for mistakes you can get paid for. just like keeping a dress with stains in your closet, not cleaned for a year.clinton. she knew what she was doing. so does mels girl.sure hes a hard ass, but she should not air out laundry on the net. lawyers are pretty smart.the more press, the more money.if this wasnt mel you wouldnt even hear about it.and when your taping someone you know what to say and not to say . you feed the dialouge and wait for the response. she hooked him good. as far a hatter or jealous, your up at 3 am writing about unattractive,see where im going with this…

To judge someone w/o all the facts is wrong. Who knows if she’s a $$ grubber or a scared woman trying to get ammo against a man for abuse?

When called for jury duty, both of you can let us all know the truth.
