Mel Gibson

Last Pics Before

Hell Broke Loose

7/9/2010 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the last photos of Mel Gibson in public -- taken at a Chili's restaurant in Texas --  just days before he went into hiding after news broke of his racial, sexist, and allegedly violent attacks on his baby mama.

In the photos -- taken during the last week of June -- Mel shot a bothered look at the camera as a group of "fans" who recognized the star at the restaurant swarm him.  Mel was at the restaurant because it's near the set of a movie he was shooting ... and really, who can resist their signature babyback ribs?

We're told Mel was "being really nice at first" ... but then "started to get a little annoyed" after several autograph and photo requests.

Days after these photos were taken, news broke that baby mama Oksana Grigoieva had secret recordings which allegedly captured Mel spewing racial and sexist hate towards her.

Oksana then told police that Mel had also attacked her physically -- and as TMZ first reported -- she claims Mel knocked out a tooth ... and chipped another. Mel is currently under investigation for spousal abuse ... though Gibson denies any wrongdoing.

Not a racist    

Looks like many Americans here are more racist than Mel. So much hatred towards Russians in your comments. If Rihana is bitten -"oh poor Rihana", if Russian woman- you call her names. Are you still in cold war era?
To Gloria 11:
Are you envious to Russian woman? I bet Oksana looks better than you. And not so angry as you are.

As someone already stated, there are two sides to every story. Also, if you secretly tape someone...then you consciously try to "direct" them through your own actions to make them do or say what you want them to or through manipulations or other means into getting what you want on tape. Oksana had motive in taping him, was it blackmail? Did she push his buttons? Because why didn't she turn him immediately by calling the police?
And yes, Mel Gibson needs to change his outlook on his fellow brothers and sisters in humanity, does he really want his children to have the same attitude/temperment he does?

Yup, he is about as thrilled to be there, doing pictures and signing autographs as he would be for the rest of the minorities in the world. This explains why his CATHOLIC wife decided to divorce his arse, how can you be this full of hatred toward people you do not know but are taking your dads word for it. PATHETIC!!!!

People so called loved ones who entrap others are sadistic greed driven people.When you have to go so low as to tape someone instead of calling the police your motives are pretty clear to many.(money,)I hope any woman who gets there teeth knocked out calls the police as soon as it happens. Grabbing a tape recorder and entrapping someone instead, puts a lot of doubt in my mind if that teeth incident even happened.You can grab a tape recorder but can,t figure out how to use a camera to show us your pretty toothless smile.Yeah ..She would be getting PAID bigtime for those pictures if it happened .Doubt it.

Seems like Mel's fan base is every bit as racist as he is if one is to believe the people who responded to this article.

That's not Mel Gibson. He's not wearing a white hood or swastika tattoos.
