Mel Gibson Goes After Oksana for Contempt

7/9/2010 9:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's lawyers have filed legal papers in their custody war, asking the judge to hold Oksana Grigorieva in contempt ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the Order to Show Cause (the contempt papers) claims Oksana is responsible for leaking the secretly-recorded tapes of Mel's rants during their nuclear arguments. The judge in the custody case issued a restraining order against Oksana late last month, prohibiting her from leaking the tapes. Mel & Co. believe Oksana sold the tapes for big bucks.

We've also learned Mel's lawyers have filed legal papers asking Judge Scott Gordon to issue an order allowing them to search Oksana's computer and iPhone for emails and text messages showing communications related to the sale of the tapes.  We've learned another judge has already rejected that motion, but it has now been renewed before Judge Gordon.

As we first reported, Oksana denied in her deposition that she's the leak.

I just listened to the RANTING and racial craziness of Mel on RADARONLINE. While I think he is disgusting on the tape and filthy, vile words, SHE KNEW SHE WAS TAPING SO SHE PLAYED THE SWEET LITTLE BITCH. Mel, come on you didn't know those boobs were FAKE???
I feel sorry for the baby involved. Again. WE ALL SAY HORRIBLE THINGS TO OUR SPOUSES AND LOVED ONES. I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO HASN'T USED THE N WORD OR THE CRACKER WORD OR THE F BOMB, AND A LOT OTHERS. Mel lost his faith and his family when he went for this woman. He will pay a heavy price in Hollywood. He should go home and live on his farm and STAY OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE. You're a hell of an actor but real SH## Mel! You need to apologize to your children and ex-wife for this as well

So what if she leaked the tapes? Even if it was for cash, this subhuman needed to be exposed.

So many are eager to jump in and call her a russian whore. IDK who or what she is...all i know is long ago i loved an respected MEL. Now i see him for who an what he is. He is a man who wasn't satisfied with what he had. A good wife *ROBIN* who put up with an never once went to tmz or anyone else with his drama. He used her up...then left her for a younger model like many guys do...expecting bliss. See what happens guys? U think a younger gal is gonna make you feel so good. Maybe for a short time...but in the end they figure you out. Just like the old model did. In the end justice will prevail and you're azz will pay the piper. MEL...I think your little baby girl deserves better than this. Both of you blow BIG TIME!

There would be no tapes to hear if he didn't ack like some freaking nut. What is wrong with this man? Has he lost his mind? There is no excuse for him to say those terrible things. And a woman beater is bad enough but to hit a woman while she is holding a baby is downright criminal and despicable.

Mel,
This is what you get for marring a Russian mail order bride. What, did you actually think a young woman from Russia marries a rich man in his elder years because she loves him? Once you said "I do" she got paid and any loyalty went out the window.

I just heard the first tape of Mel Gibson's racist rant on perezhilton.com...and it is even worse than has been reported. This is the tape where he uses the N-Word. It is definately Gibson on the audio, as clear as day, and he is a seething weirdo on the tape.

According to the celebrity playbook, Mel should be announcing his entry into rehab any day now and then building another church.

I do not blame her for leaking the tape. He needed to be outed for his behavior. There's no excuse for assauting this woman and verbally insulting her. She still is the mother of his child whether he likes it or not. I will not endorse anything that he does ever again.

Russians are human beings too, just as loving, and loved, as Americans--so stop with the hate speech, and name calling here!!! Those of you who speak with hate against Russians, make yourselves look like just what you are, xenophobic and cruel people. This is why so many in the world dislike, and distrust, Americans.
