Oksana Grigorieva is furious that ex Mel Gibson is now claiming that it was her sister who leaked his abusive rants, but I think she’s as much of a liar as he is!
When Mel Gibson’s shocking rants first hit the Internet, I was outraged for his now-estranged baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva. However, as time goes on and the two continue to call each other out in the press and the 40-year-old Russian pianist’s claims are getting more and more ridiculous, she’s completely lost my sympathy vote. With each leaked tape and public statement — like the one Oksana released today, which called Mel out for claiming her sister released the rants — Oksana seems less like a victim and more like a drama queen who wants her fifteen minutes!
Don’t get me wrong — no one, no matter how obnoxious, deserves to be abused, mentally or physically. However, if Oksana was REALLY only looking out for the safety of the former couple’s eight-month-old daughter, Lucia, she would have taken Mel, 54, to court back in January and wouldn’t be constantly feeding this media circus.
Los Angeles-based celebrity image expert Michael Sands, who specializes in high profile custody cases like this one, tells me that Oksana has dug herself a grave by trying her case in the media when she should have kept it in the courtroom.
“Oksana didn’t go to the police within 24 hours, so how can we believe all of this?” Sands — who’s previous cases include the Britney Spears/Kevin Federline custody battle — says, explaining, “She screwed up. Everyone would have believed her if she had turned this in right away, but all of this happened months ago. She’s a gold digger.”
Oksana reportedly prepared her lawsuit just in case Mel didn’t pony up enough cash to keep her silent. Then, when Mel offered her a $15-million settlement, she backed out at the last minute because the deal included unsupervised visits with baby Lucia.
Between his horrific rants and her transparent “poor me” act, I think Mel and Oksana deserve each other. The only person I truly feel sorry for is their poor daughter. She certainly didn’t ask to get thrown into this disgusting battle of the exes!
