Oksana/Mel Tell Different Stories Re: Extortion

7/13/2010 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is a "long paper trail" showing Oksana Grigorieva tried to extort money from Mel Gibson in return for keeping the tapes secret ... this according to sources connected with the actor.

But a source close to Oksana tells TMZ, "She did not try to extort Mel Gibson nor did she ask him for money in return for the tapes."

As we have previously reported, Mel's attorneys plan to meet with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department to make "a presentation of evidence" -- which, we're told, includes their evidence of alleged extortion.

I think she taped him because of the threats,as he is very threating on the tapes the law will believe her.He should support his child and help with a little of the cost of running the house she is raised in,but he should not have to support her in anyway.The more i read the more i think she is a golddigger but what he has done and said is so much worse.Men needs to stop letting their ****s do the thinking,he has brought this on himself..I hope he doesn`t take her to court over the tapes because he will look worse than he already does.I hope he doesn`t raise that little girl he has zero respect for women,regardless of what she has done, u just don`t talk that way unless u hate women.I hope the police pursue him for domestic violence without her,he will try and pay her to drop charges.This is what u get for not believing in wearing condoms mel..PLEASE STOP BLAMING HER, HE IS AN ABUSER..

His exwife and him were seperated for a long time,And was he was notoriously a cheater throughout their whole marriage so the idea that she stole him or took him away from his wife is ridiculous. He and Timothy Dalton were no spring chickens long time actors know the game with young women she's no pro or mastermind I mean come on it's one of the first things that talent agents and manager's tell you about if your male and enter the entertainment industry. They both chose to date a younger woman and then engage in unprotected sex against their better judgement then they decided they didn't want the baggage. There is no conceivable scenario in my mind in which she forced them to impregnate her considering all the life experience both men had at the time of conception. But people like to use her nationality as some soft of excuse,Or perhaps that she had a child with another actor. Lol yeah lol like there aren't any other women who exclusively date movie stars or rappers or celeberities lol hahahah. WAKE UP PEOPLE! This happens to stars just like it happens to everyone else normal guys go through the same thing. If you don't wanna be connected to a woman you are not related to then don't have unprotected sex with them end of story. If she's a mastermind of deception somehow then she is really really GOOD! Fool'd 2 really experienced men and actors. If you believe that then as my dear old mom would say "I have a bridge I'd like to sell you".

@ electriczipper
It surprised me too until I realised that they weren't, in fact, intelligent. Then it all made sense.
I think that they are the drooling, slavish army of obsessed female fans who really, truly do believe in the sanctity of St Mel and believe that he can do no wrong. They have spent so much of their lives idolising and worshipping this man, and placing him on a pedestal, that they are horrified to find he has feet of clay and the mind of a Sociopath. They refuse to believe it. It disturbs too much, the saintly image of him that they have constructed in their heads.

It very likely he has a severe mental illness. He needs help, but not the enabling type that fans provide, i.e. he can do no wrong, everything is the woman's fault, he can do anything he wants to her. I believe he could put her 6 feet under and you ridiculous fans would support it. Maybe you supporters have an illness too, I don't know. He needs serious professional, psychiatric help. And if you think this woman is to blame for creating a homocidal maniac, you're more ignorant than words can say

"It amazes me that people with actual brains are willing to give mel a break and blame the woman."

Because intelligent people know that there's THREE sides to a story.

Her side, his side, and the truth.

Oksana is a ****ing sociopath anyway..and mel gotta get his drunken rages in check.

Do u know what a sociopath is? Do u even k now how they operate?

Mel is more narcissistic than he is sociopath.

Oksana shows more traits of being a sociopath than mel does.

One KEY trait in all sociopaths is they want people to believe that they are the calm cool collected one.. when in reality they are the doing the manipulation and thrive on it.. have no shame or guilt in it, or embarrassment

oksana is not embarrassed one bit that these tapes are released.. i know if i was getting abused, i would want as much privacy in the matter as possible.. not put i ton the world stage for everyone to read.

Oksana got sociopathic tendencies way more than Mel, and her ways are more subtle..

the KEY to sociopaths are their charm and ability to remain calm.. they dont feel emotion so they don't react to it, they can do this efficiently

like i said, theres three sides to a story.. stop being a moron and looking at one side.

Ah, but she hasn't behaved like a sociopath while he has, and long before he met her, too.
He wins the sociopath monthly award, that's for sure.

you know it    

When are the lies gonna stop? I can see right thru Mel. He is a liar to the core! Spin it anyway he can, I believe Okasana all the way. He probably swooned her to get in the sack and now he's done with her. All men are pigs. Even the rich and famous ones. When are men going to man up? Where are all the good guys?

So, basically Mel's lawyers are saying that it is him on the tapes spouting all of the racist remarks... admitting to spousal abuse...etc. Nice. Great PR move. Personally, I think she deserves every penny she can get from this jerk. His first wife should be able to collect additional money just for living with him. Good riddance Mel. I hope you end up in jail for a long, long time. Wife beaters and racists don't deserve anybody's hard-earned money.

Oksana is no fool. She gets pregnant by another celebrity ( will always have money off of the kids support) She had these tapes "leaked". She will get Gibson one way or the other and looks like she will. That was one pissed off man. Even if the tapes don't make it in court the dammage is done. They are public now. Gibson hung himself just like Tiger Woods. By their own words on tape. Woods was just a kinky lier and cheat but Gibson's no mistake physical threats is a whole different ballgame. I don't think Gibson is worried about his movie career I think he is worried about possible jail time if this plays out. This is not the first time. Gibson is showing a pattern of threats and violence. Gibsons own words "you deserved it". I think Gibson lost his baby girl.
