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.

Why do you people take this so personally? The fight between those two have NOTHING to do with the public. I don't believe this woman is at all innocent. It's definately a set up. The tape almost sounds like exerpts from his films..If he had beat her in January, why didn't she call the cops, or go to a hospital???? She's full of crap!! How many of you fought with your partners and said nasty things??? And how many of you said "racist" remarks in private??? She is just trying to get the public on her side and ruin him. God knows what she was saying before she clicked on her recorder.. Leave Mel alone!!

Quite frankly does it matter who leaked these tapes? If this is what Mel Gibson (or anyone for that matter) is like then I congratulate whoever leaked them. He is beyond vile. He should be locked up simply for being an evil, racist, ignorant danger to society.

Wrong Joanie:

Our women-folk watch and listen to this stuff and then do it to their men-folk.

It is SAD to see that our younguns will never get to enjoy life because of what they see and watch on the Kardassians and then bring home. All this useless manufactured drama because women these days ENJOY the hell they create and then go running to the cops when their teeth get busted out.

Fools.

All a bunch of d@mn fools.

And that is why I take it personally. Our kids will never enjoy all that life has to offer, they end up in jail, bottle rats in clubs, single parents and man haters from the git-go.

What a waste of humanity.

You guys need to remember the hell OJ put Nicole Brown Simpson through before he decapitated her. She too had evidence of violence yet no one came out and said she was a whore, or money grubbing and deserved to be murdered for violating OJ's privacy?? I don't blame this girl one bit! Who cares how we got here she is a mother now and protecting herself from future harm so she can be around to raise her daughter! I only wish the internet was around in 1994 and Nicole would most likely still be alive because she could have "leaked" evidence of her abuse and maybe been spared her life!

Jen??? Wrong.

Nicole Brown Smith was plucked from total obscurity by a rich man. His reward was to get cheated on repeatedly by his wif who culd not think 5 minutes into the future.

Once again... the law may say that you cannot smack a spouse. But thinking 5 minutes into the future - once again, what good is any law IF YOU ARE DEAD BECAUSE YOU ASKED FOR IT???

Not fair, you say??

Put it to what I call "THE BAR TEST".


Go ahead ladies. Talk your chicken-head cr@p and lies and cheating to some random in a bar. Go ahead. Do it.

What will happen??? Man or woman - you will get yo a$$ beat.

Mel Gibson has lost his mind (although I'm not really sure he hasn't always been this way). What he screamed at this woman are the words of a very sick man. Whether she leaked the tapes or not really doesn't matter ... this all started with Mel (that fabulous man of God). He has alienated just about every person on the face of the earth with his hatred toward apparently every living thing. I hope he never gets to see his baby daughter again.

DNA test Lucia to see who her parents actually are. Cross compare the voice pattern from the tapes to known voice dialog of Mel. Bet the tapes were edited. Oksana set the guy up and has maxed out her resources. She is desperate and sold the tapes while she could get something for them. Not fond of either of these idiots.

Oh, come on. This woman has been around the block. She had another baby with an actor, David Foster bought her a house. She came to this country to get rich off of these stupid men. On the other hand, Mel deserves what he gets. He is a hypocrite. He builds his own church and tells the parishoners that if they say anything bad about him, they will no longer be in his church. He is supposed to be a good Catholic. Right.

Think about it folks...
The ONLY time Mel drops his Aussie accent is when he's ACTING...
When he's giving interviews, it's there...
When he was ranting to the Malibu Police, it was there...

How is it that in this particular tape, it doesn't show up AT ALL?...
Because Oksana hired someone who can "sound" like Mel to play the part...EVERYTHING is possible with a good producer...Including this...

Wrong Marilyn. It does matter how the conversation went there. I can make almost anyone angry by doing nasty things behind back and then recording. Not defending Mel for his words, but is Oksana trying to say, she is angel sent to earth by the Goddess from heaven, she is innocent, quite on the tape and Mel burst all the anger ? Did she record when she was angry or doing nasty things ? Where is the conversation that lead to the outburst ? I can catch almost anyone angry in years of life ? The tape does not prove anything what happened before or after. The only thing it shows is Mel is angry and Oksana is shrewedly recording it for a purpose. What's that purpose ? Danger to her life or $$$ ? Does anyone really think Mel was going to kill her ?
