The Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson saga just keeps raging on. As soon as you think that everything can possibly happen has, you get hit with some new news. Now Gibson is alleging that his ex-girlfriend and baby mama tried to extort $10 million for him in order to keep the tapes quite. How did that work out for ya, Melly? For more info on this alleged extortion plots and what else is going on in this war of words, keep on reading!
It must be the month for extortion claims. First John Stamos files (and wins) and extortion case against two Michigan people, and now good ol’ crazy Mel is after some as well. In the wake of the release of his latest rant against Grigorieva, and the surfacing of alleged photos showing her post beating, Gibson is claiming that that Grigorieva wanted $10 million to keep his crazy rants to herself. Doesn’t look like he cooperated if that’s the case. He is broke, after all.
It certainly doesn’t surprise me that people are saying Grigorieva allegedly wanted money for the tapes. Even though this isn’t the first time that Gibson has been caught on tape flying off the handle, these tapes certainly don’t show the softer side of Gibson, and his career likely won’t recover from this. If he treated her as badly as she claims, taping his rants in order to get some money from him certainly has the makings to work. She is pretty calm in the tapes after being called every name in the book.
Sources close to Gibson are claiming that there is “hard proof” that Grigorieva tried to extort the hotheaded actor, and that the tapes may have been altered to show Mel in a negative light. I can’t imagine how racial slurs, death threats, profanity, and sexual innuendos could be made to look MORE negative, but that’s what the Gibson camp is accusing.
Whether she attempted to extort the actor, was or wasn’t beaten, or any of the other accusations that are being made, one thing is pretty clear as this whole saga continuously unfolds: Mel Gibson is one looney dude. Since his agent has already dropped his contract, I’m surprised it took FIVE tapes being released (after years of erratic behavior) before he cried foul.
What do you guys think? Do you think there is any truth to the alleged Oksana Grigorieva extortion plot? Does it even matter? Is Mel as crazy as she is making him out to be? Let us know by commenting below!
