Law Enforcement

Questions Oksana's M.O.

7/8/2010 7:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they have "serious concerns" over Oksana Grigorieva's credibility in connection with her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson ... because, we're told, she had money on the brain before making her claim.

Our sources say Gibson has emails and other evidence Oksana "tried to extract money from Mel in return for the [explosive] tapes."  As TMZ has already reported, Oksana secretly recorded Gibson during several heated arguments back in February.

We're told Sheriff's investigators are concerned that Oksana had contact with civil lawyers and judges while she negotiated a visitation agreement with Mel over a 6-month period but never once contacted police.  Oksana was represented by attorney Eric George, the son of California Supreme Court Justice Ronald George, to handle the visitation case.  She went through 2 full days of mediation in May, conducted by two former judges, one of whom was a former federal prosecutor and negotiated a visitation agreement.

We've learned the agreement -- signed by both Oksana and Mel -- gave Mel full visitation rights and future joint legal custody of their daughter.

Last month, Oksana refused to give Mel his visitation rights and it was then that she made allegations of abuse for the first time.

TMZ has previously reported ... Mel denies knocking Oksana's teeth out.

No fool like an old fool. Men of a certain age, with lots of money, should know young women are after the money.....that's all they're after.

I used to like Mel but no longer. That said this woman is a true golddigger and will do anything to get money. What a worthless person she is. Mel knows he ruinied his wife and first family by falling prey to this woman whose motives are so transparent.

I grew up in Temple City California. Every weekend we would have Mel parties and watch the lethal weapon series over and over. What he has done to this woman is not a crime. Wearing the god awful Mullet in the free world the way he did.. that is a different story.
