Oksana's Rep: Don't Blame the Victim

7/18/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's spokesperson is lashing out at Mel Gibson's camp, claiming his client is the victim of a smear campaign.

Spokesperson Stephen Jaffe tells TMZ, "While Mr. Gibson's camp has floated a variety of false claims in the press to try to distract the public from the true facts at hand, it is telling that his camp has not once denied that it is Mr. Gibson's voice on the published recordings." 

Jaffe adds, "It is common in such cases for those who perpetrate domestic violence to vilify the victim of that domestic violence.  One would hope that those who are close to Mr. Gibson would take a more constructive approach."

Jaffe is partly reacting to a TMZ story which cited an expert who claimed there was evidence Oksana's injuries were self-inflicted.

Another expert familiar with the case tells TMZ, "It is obvious not only from the photograph of Ms. Grigorieva, but from other evidence, including Mr. Gibson's own admission, that he struck her in the mouth and temple, that she sustained injuries as a result of his blows.  The notion that her wounds were 'self-inflicted' is ridiculous and not credible.  No legitimate, independent expert photo analyst could reasonably draw such a conclusion.  Her injuries are consistent with her account."

After all of this nonsense I am thinking Mel is the victim.

Mel might be a drunk and say stupid stuff but this chick is full of crap. Even Mel's ex-wife of 30 years agrees.

Most people aren't trying to villify her, they are calling BS because she never reported it to the police. And that crap about being too scared is total BS. This is Mel Gibson we are talking about, it's not like he's going to get away with retaliation, she is using the "I was too scared" excuse to cover the fact that she her cash registers going CHING CHING when it happened, so she shut up and waited to get paid. She is trash.

Yes indeed!    

Money stars in her black eyes. This Russian gypsy woman was not content with what Mel gave her she had to push the issue further and record him without his knowledge for extra cash.

Pathetic! She has a child with Mel and she took the tapes publicly. Why would you want to discredit your child's father? This will haunt your kid for many years to come and it will hurt her in the end.

But $$$$$ is the real reason. SHE IS A DISGUSTING WHORE NEVER TO BE TRUSTED BY ANYONE WITH MONEY.

She became the victim out of her own doing. Deal with it.

P.S. Hopefully Mel reads this.

After you have repelled this vampire chick Oksana, you need to get down on your knees and go back to your wife Robyn, who saved you once again, and stop being such a stupid ***hole.

Dude, you are making it hard for all us dudes who intend to stick it out.

Good god, either she or her "people", her reps have got something to say every 5 minutes. I would shut up and let the lawyers hash it out. You have already done pretty much all the damage you can, you little twit, sit back and smile. What whitetrash.

They are right, Mel's people are totally trying to distract us from the facts! They think that if we believe she is a golddigging liar, we will forgive him for the things he said, and forgive him for hitting her while she was holding a baby. First and foremost, abusing women is WRONG. There is NO EXCUSE. EVER. Even if all the things Mel's people said are true (extortion, she leaked the tapes, etc) that does not excuse his behavior.

Yes indeed!    

one more thing

She told Mel she has "not a penny" yet all this bull**** she is apparently showing the world costs money.. how can she not have money? Did she screw others in the process to get her materialistic ways become a reality?

Apparently she has no money yet she has money for veneers (they cost a lot), boob implants, cosmetic surgery, botox and paying money on PR/Spokesmen and lawyers. Does this woman even work? $100k per year she says she USED to make is not a lot of money but the maintenance of a media gold digging queen must be coming from somewhere...

It doesn't matter if it's his voice or not.
It matters if the tapes are splice and if she broke her own teeth.

"No legitimate, independent expert photo analyst could reasonably draw such a conclusion."

Thought they already had...'course each side will present their own "expert" testimony anyway...which may wind up negating each other. Bottome line he may say horrid things but it will be pretty hard to prove physical abuse especially with the long term relationship with the dentist and his inconsistent stories.

Skimming the comments, I have to ask the person that said she coaxed him into saying things... did you listen to the tapes? When she was actually arguing back, he SHUT UP. His worst rants came when she was quiet. I've heard several people say she "got him" to say those things, pushed his buttons, whatever. And she was just "acting good" on the tapes. But then how come he got angriest when she was "acting good?" Listen to the tapes again, he just GOES OFF on her when she says things like "okay, you're right." Seriously? That is "coaxing" him?

Also, out of curiosity, all the people that have such hateful things to say about the woman... what's your deal? I've heard on the tv show that a lot of people in prison watch TMZ, is that who is leaving such negative comments? I can't understand how anybody else could side with the racist woman-beater.

Yes indeed!    

One does not need to go public in situations like these.

She could get justice and keep her privacy if Oxen would have behaved ladylike.

WHAT IS THE NEED TO GO PUBLIC? SOMEONE GIVE ME A ****ING GOOD REASON...

I WILL TELL YOU WHY.. CASH!!! SOLD 5 TAPES AND GOT PAID.... NEVER ENOUGH FOR THE GOLDIE...
