Joe Eszterhas penned the scrapped Jewish film ‘The Maccabees’. Now he’s going after troubled would-be director Mel, accusing him of referring to Jews as ‘oven-dodgers’, calling the Holocaust ‘horses–t’ and threatening to kill his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva!
The actor has to pay the Russian singer this sum over the next five years. He’s also providing Oksana and their daughter Lucia with a house in Los Angeles. In return he gets to share 50-50 custody of the 22 month old!
In his first interview since tapes of his raging anger toward the mother of his infant girl surfaced, Mel tells Deadline.com he regrets his outburst — but it ‘doesn’t represent what I truly believe.’
Mel Gibson is sorry — now! The infamous tapes of his sexist, racist and threatening rants at Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his baby daughter Lucia, caught him at his worst, he tells our sister site Deadline.com!
Mel Gibson lost control of his fancy car, hit a hillside and had to have it towed away August 15! Did he do it on purpose or is luck -– quite fairly — just not on his side?
Mel Gibson’s personal drama never ends. Almost immediately after returning from a two-week fishing trip, the Australian actor went for a joy ride in his ultra-swanky 2008 four-door Maserati in Malibu, Calif. August 15…and proceeded to crash the $120,000+ car into a hill. Was he drinking again or is karma out to get him?

Two new reports claim that Mel Gibson was abusive — reiterating many of YOUR opinions that his actions are abusive and unforgivable
An unlikely Mel Gibson ally surfaced last week when one HollywoodLife.com reader, Karen, reached out to me, explaining that as a former victim of domestic abuse, she found Mel Gibson’s estranged girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, to be in the wrong. However, as more and more evidence against Mel comes out in the open — including angry text messages to baby mama Oksana Grigorieva — many of you actively disagree with Karen and say no one ever has an excuse to harm another person….no matter how much Oksana pushed Mel’s buttons.

One HollywoodLifer tells me she’s Team Mel! As a victim of domestic abuse herself, she doesn’t think Oksana is telling the truth!

We find it a little hard to believe after listening to his countless taped rants, but the Department of Child and Family Services says that Mel has a good relationship with his 8-month-old daughter, Lucia.
The physical threats, the misogynistic, racist curse words, the barely controlled rage… We’ve heard all this and more on the Mel Gibson tapes, which makes it hard to believe that the Oscar winner could be anything but a danger to his daughter with extranged lover Oksana Grigorieva. But the DCFS, which launched an investigation into Mel, after the tapes first surfaced, has concluded that any issues Mel might have with his 40-year-old baby mama don’t extend to his daughter.
Is this photograph proof that Mel really DID hit Oksana? The snap, which leaked on the Internet today, is being used as evidence in the criminal and civil investigation against the formerly A-list actor
Mel Gibson seems to be fighting a losing battle – one that hasn’t even entered the court room yet! A photo of Oksana Grigorieva sporting a black eye leaked onto the Internet July 27 and may serve as further evidence in the criminal case against the Russian pianist’s former lover, Mel Gibson, who allegedly abused her.
In the creepy song she released on her album last year, Mel Gibson’s estranged girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, warbled about wishing she was in Russia and “safe from harm!”
How’s this for a case of life imitating art? Mel Gibson’s estranged baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, foreshadowed her own domestic abuse in a song she released LAST YEAR! On the track “Evening with Daddy,” the 40-year-old Russian pianist sings, ““I wish I wasn’t spending the evening with Daddy / And I don’t have a penny to call my own. I wish I wasn’t spending the evening with Daddy / But he’s good to the ladies who’s on his arm/I wish I was somewhere in Russia at the feet of my mother / Safe from harm.”
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!
The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is investigating claims that Oksana Grigorieva extorted ex-lover Mel Gibson AND lied to officials. But Oksana’s lawyers are adamantly saying she did NOT extort Mel!
Even though Oksana Grigorieva managed to get ex-lover Mel Gibson’s horrifying rants on tape and thus provide evidence for a criminal investigation, her execution may have been flawed. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department says it is now investigating claims from Mel’s camp that Oksana tried to extort the Braveheart actor for millions of dollars in order to keep the tapes secret. But Oksana’s attorney is coming out swinging against the claims that his client tried to extort Mel. Oksana tried to extort the Braveheart actor for millions of dollars in order to keep the tapes secret.
A source within the Los Angeles County Dept. of Children and Family Services (DCFS) reveals a surprising take on the Mel Gibson situation — that Mel isn’t a bad father, that he’s not ‘a violent alcoholic,’ that Oksana is using the baby as ‘bait,’ and that the bruise in the photo revealed July 21 was an accident.
A photo of Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva‘s bruised and cut eight-month-old baby Lucia was revealed on RadarOnline.com July 21 — but a Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services insider tells HollywoodLife.com that the Sensitive Case Unit (SCU), which handles high-profile cases like Mel’s, has already seen the photo — and believes that it was an accident.
Oksana tells authorities she was punched and choked by Mel during their January dispute just as newly released tapes have Mel admitting to hitting his newborn daughter.
The latest news in the Mel Gibson saga is perhaps the most harrowing as Oksana Grigorieva has told authorities Mel said he would kill her, himself, and their own daughter Lucia. Radar Online reports that after Mel punched her, “Oksana finally was freed from Mel’s grip and jumped up to leave but she says Mel then pulled a gun from the pocket of his short, pointed it at her head and threatened to kill her, Lucia and Sascha (Oksana’s son with Timothy Dalton), as well as himself, in an apparent murder-suicide plot.”
Domestic abuse is no joke — you have to get out while you still can. Experts say it’s all about getting the power back from your abusive partner.
It’s been nothing but a physical and emotional battle for Oksana Grigorieva to get her life back after she split from ex Mel Gibson back in April 2010. Since she filed a restraining order against him in June, Mel has gone mad, repeatedly threatening her life. For her own safety, Oksana captured Mel’s disturbing words on tape as evidence of his erratic behavior in order to protect herself and their 8-month-old daughter Lucia. And experts say she made the right decision getting out and taking control of the situation. “The first thing you have to do [in a situation like this] is protect yourself and get help,” Pat Love, co-author of How To Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It, explains to HollywoodLife.com.
