Sources connected with Gibson have told TMZ the actor did not get violent with Oksana during their January 6 confrontation, although they admit things did get physical. A source connected with Oksana, however, says, "Mel and his camp are spinning the facts in a desperate attempt to protect his reputation."

Sources in Oksana's camp say Mel's people are lying when they say she shook the baby. Instead, the sources say, "She tried to protect the baby during one of Gibson's violent episodes when he punched Oksana in the face two times, breaking her teeth and giving her a concussion."

As one source put it, "She tried to protect his reputation, depsite her fears of him and his verbal and physical abuse." And the source goes on, "She regrets having believed in his empty promises to obtain professional help to control his violent nature."

TMZ broke the story ... Oksana obtained a restraining order against Gibson last Monday, which prohibits him from coming within 100 yards of her.

Oksana's attorneys would not comment about the case, but did say, "The true facts will be brought out in a court of law. Oksana will continue to abide by the ethical obligations and rules arising from a confidential paternity action and will let the court decide the issue in this matter."

You people are being awfully quick to go after this woman. Personally, do I believe that this may have been a marriage of convenience??? Yes... but in this case I believe that went both ways. Can a marriage of convenience be a loving, committed relationship; absolutely!!! I also understand the dynamics of a person staying in a relationship with an abusive partner with the hope that things will "work out". Do I think that Mel Gibson is a quick-tempered, abusive, controlling, self-centered, ego-maniac??? Yeppers!!!! You can see it in the dude... he radiates arrogant bastard. Hell.... if he had his own cologne that's what it would be called.... Mel Gibson's - Arrogant Bastard!!! Some of you are just far too star struck, just as I'm sure Ms. Grigorieva was. Unfortunately that's exactly how things turned out for her if you catch my drift. I say sue his ass, make a good life for you and your child and move on.

I believe Oksana about this violent abuse. His wife probably experience alot of it too but kept quiet because of the children and for financial reasons. These celebrities get away it, that's the sad part. I'd keep away from the little one too.

Mel Gibson is a jewish hating SOB and a drunk. I have no doubt in my mind that he physically abused her or the child. He was probably angry at the child as it will cause her to be able to take all his money. Maybe she does want money from him, but who can blame her. She has a bastard child with this SOB and he treated her like dirt.

ARE YOU PEOPLE MAKING COMMENTS SERIOUS?????????????????????????????????????????????



"She is a money-hungry whore", "She is so full of ****," "Why would she stay for 6 months after her teeth were knocked out...please."



((Running around the house frantically looking for the time machine that unwittingly transported me to the age of cavernous Neanderthals)).



YOU PEOPLE ARE THE MOST IGNORANT, BIGOTED PEOPLE I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS. If you actually read about domestic violence, you will see that this story matches the pattern to a T of abusive relationships.

I think she's lying. She keeps coming up with more stuff that he allegedly did to her, making him sound more violent every time. Just because he cheated doesn't mean he would physically abuse her. She should produce records of her going to the hospital for her concussion or to the dentist for her teeth. If she really got her teeth knocked out, there will be some sort of record. But right now, she just looks like a person who is just saying as many shocking, horrible things to get more attention and money, and to make Mel look like a bad person. My husband's friend's ex wife did that-telling everyone he beat her badly and wouldn't give her a dime for their baby, etc, when in reality he was the nicest guy, and was always broke from giving her his paychecks and buying things for the baby.
Some women are just like that, they try to make everyone feel sorry for them by making the other person look like a monster (Mel's rasict streak aside).

PATILEE    

So, if she had all these injuries, including a concussion which is quite serious, there will be medical reports to back her up. No problem. If there are hospital records and she gave a different story at the time, the burning questions will be, "well, Ms. God Digger, were you lying then or are you lying now?"

It is possible that he did this to her, but it is also possible that she is lying about it, just looking to get attention and to make people hate Mel. Just because he looks like an abuser, doesn't mean he is. Unless she can prove that he punched her teeth out and gave her a concussion (by producing hospital reports, dental reports, etc) then I think everyone should stop assuming she's telling the truth. Just because Mel has had drinking issues and is racist does not automatically make him a wife beater. My husband is a bit racist, but he doesn't beat me.

Oh, REALLY! Teeth knocked out, - where's the obvious paper trail (ie. hospital, private doctor, clinic, assuredly a dentist, etc)? Concussion - where's the proof? AGAIN. Also, where's the photographic proof? She didn't even take any cell-phone images? Anyone who believes anything out of this chicks mouth is as ignorant as hell.

BS ! If he never got violent with his wife of 85 yers, he's not going to get violent with a little tramp such as her self. She is making her intentions more and more clear. She only wants to get a piece of Mel's pie. Obviously her music career never took off, and I'm sure that plays a big part. If she was someone, had her own money, then these claims against Mel would never have happened. She's just another money grubbing wh***, who cant make her own way, so she trapped him with a kid, and now claims of violence. If he had clocked her in the face back in January, breaking her teeth, we'd of heard about it.
There's no way this would have gone under the radar ! No way !

re 49... they were never married.. I fear that may be part of her anger issues



also she states he is not giving her a cent.. she does not say he is not contributing towards their child. (look at the phrasing.)



As they were not married it would be unlikely he would have to support her,only that he provides for their child (that would include a home).



As for the Domestic violence allegations, proof please, she states he physically damaged her in a way that would require intervention from medical persons so there has to be records in existence.
It is dangerous to assume statements are true without proof. It could be slander or liable (if published) regardless of the accused existing reputation.



I yesterday posted and suggested her motives to throw such stories about without providing proof (her timeline is off considering public record of photographs at events).. (that post was taken down???) but you normally go to an ATM for it.



as for the person who claims no mother would shake her own child .. the fact are out there sadly that some will and have done such and worse to their own children..



It is a sad and horrid fact that both their stories have plausible merit, the Truth is out there ....
