Sheriff's Dept. Wants Interview with Oksana's Son

7/13/2010 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the L.A. County Sheriff's Department wants to interview the 12-year-old son of Oksana Grigorieva in connection with the Mel Gibson investigation, and they believe the boy has critical information about his mom's volatile relationship with Mel.

Sources tell us Alexander Dalton saw many of the blowups between Mel and his mom, both before and after the explosive January 6 showdown.  Alexander -- whose dad is actor Timothy Dalton -- lived with Mel and Oksana while they were together, and is considered "a very important percipient witness" to Sheriff's investigators.

Based on the information we know, Alexander did not witness when Mel allegedly struck Oksana, but he may have been in the vicinity, heard the argument and saw the aftermath.

And we're told Alexander -- who is sometimes called Sacha (Russian for Alexander) -- is also a critical witness in the couple's custody battle.

Sources tell us Oksana will not try and prevent Sheriff's investigators from interviewing her son.

I just heard those tapes and was laughing my ass off. Nothing out of ordinary. She wound him up and he's falling for it. I've heard nastier arguments between couples. the fact that he's winded is of concern, but that stuff he said- she really pissed him off. The kid is always going to side with mom- your dead Mel

it isn't the fact that we loathe the fact that she has had more than one baby daddy. It is the fact that she soooooooooooooo set this man up, tried to destroy him, used him financially, betrayed him and publicly humiliated him.

Oksana is a man's worst nightmare and an embarrassment to women of substance.

Rach? are you serious?? WE DON'T EVEN KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE!

there has been ZERO evidence her teeth were knocked out by him, the ONLY evidence she has is a secret recording of a fight? you've never had a fight with anyone and said mean and hurtful things? than you are one in a million! that's for sure...

It's common for the police to interview the children in a violent and abusive relationship. To say they shouldn't be dragged into it is naive...as they are already in it and talking about it can often prove therapeutic for them. It's terrible for any child to be in a situation where their mother is being violently beaten and verbally abused by a man.
It's likely her son will need counselling anyway to get over the damage that Mel Gibson has done both to him and his mother in his out-of-control and alcoholic rants.
It's the worst thing in the world to have to deal with an alcoholic and abusive man in a relationship. I feel great sympathy for his wife and for Oksana and all his children.
Both of them have had to put up with him. How his wife did it for so long, she must have had the patience of a saint. Or been frightened out of her wits.
The sooner this dangerous man is taken out of circulation, the better.

I am not convinced he knocked her teeth out. That is her story - not his. There is his truth, her truth and the real truth....

Since she taped him and at the very least plotted to destroy him for the purpose of financial gain (those are the facts), then I have no respect for her.

the only thing i know is that THEIR BABY SHOULD NEVER - EVER BE ALLOWED UNSUPERVISED VISITS. mel gibson is a danger to the baby. we will see by the outcome in this custody case that MONEY buys everything. mel won't be charged with any criminal offenses and he will get 50% custody and 50% visitation with this child. i read somewhere this woman was married to tmothy dalton from 1997 to 2002. TMZ needs to control this custody hearing and make the judge do the right thing in this matter. mel gibson's people would have destroyed this woman WITHOUT THOSE TAPES BEING LEAKED. when this first all came out i thought she was another skank ho but i am starting to feel sorry for her. she is endanger of losing both kids now cuz mel's people will stop at nothing to try and stop this bitch.

I Forgive Mel Gibson

"We may see the shadow in others and,
if we dare,
know it in ourselves.
Mostly, however, we deny it in ourselves
and project it onto others.
It can also have a life of its own, as the Other.
A powerful goal that some undertake is
to re-integrate the shadow, the dark side,
and the light of the 'real' self.
If this can be done effectively,
then we can become 'whole' once again,
bringing together that which was
once split from us."

ok, I didn't think about this kid being there but, wow, what a new low for Mel if he did all of this while a 12 year old was in the home! It's bad enough with a baby in the house but for a 12 year old to witness?!? If what I read from one of your post is true, I hope it is true that he's off with dad most of the time...that's probably a good thing!

I love TMZ's website and TV program! But I wanted to make a quick clarification for future reference: Sasha is not Russian for Alexander. It is merely a nickname for Alexander; like Jack is sometimes a nickname for Jonathan, or Hank for Henry, etc. In fact, this "trend" has become so popular throughout all of Europe, that Sasha is also a nickname for Alexandra or sometimes even Alexis. I know this because I, in fact, am named Alexandra but EVERYBODY calls me Sascha (spelled the German way). Just an FYI...

There is no proof he hit her - only her accusations and a supposed dentist ....who just happens to also be a friend...who violated his medical oath and who referred her the maid... And now the child... Hmmmm sounds like more of the same plotting, scheming extortion plot to me.

I don't believe a word she says.

I am on Mel's side!!
