Oksana Texts To Mel Could Make Tapes Inadmissible

7/20/2010 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Oksana Grigorieva's text messages to Mel Gibson could make her secretly-recorded conversations inadmissible in court.

Oksana recorded the conversations without Mel's knowledge.  In California, if a person isn't told their conversation is being recorded, it is not admissible in court.

There are exceptions -- notably, if Oksana reasonably believed the conversation related to the commission of any felony of violence, she could make the recording without Mel's permission.

Here's the problem.  TMZ has learned Oksana sent Mel several text messages in which she clearly states she recorded the conversations because Mel didn't keep his part of the deal to support her.

We're told Mel's people will use Oksana's text messages to try and prove it was just a money grab, which would make the recordings inadmissible in both the custody case and any possible criminal case.

Sources connected with Oksana say ... if she was motivated by money she would not have rejected Mel's $15 million settlement.

great
she and her money seeking lawyers made a mistake. good.

now to the loser timothy dalton:
look loser, you do understand that she left you for another man with more money and (dunno how to say this...) more important in the business?

you do understand that, do you?

good

now go cry with her ... and ask the cops to protect you in case Mel (who is a real man with more money and more talent) doesn't like it and may scream at you.
are you scared? really?

ohhhh poor thing ...

Yeah right, sounds to me the Russian woman wants MORE good American dollars. Hope she ends up with nothing, Mel should just support his child plain and simple.

I think it's a good point they raise that if she just wanted money, she wouldn't have turned down that 15 million. There is no way she can make more than that by filing criminal charges and going after custody. She only has child support now, which she would have gotten even if she had accepted the 15 million. Plus, if it really was her that leaked the tapes, by hurting Gibson's career, it means she would get even less in child support... so it just doesn't make sense to me that money is her main motivation.

I could go on and on and on listing links of stupid and evil stuff Mel has done and said and these are not stupid youtube links that are RESPECTED NEW OUTLETS, But I suppose you will say none of that is true and spew forth your nonsense it's ok I get it you have a problem you view Mel as god too bad for you the rest of the world does not. You cannot grow up in a house where both your parent deny a HISTORICAL FACT like the holocaust and make you believe their ludicrous beliefs and come out of it completely normal the man was a wreck when he met Robyn and all through their marriage with the infidelity and the drinking and the rants and this and that and blah blah blah.

He is a sick individual and he needs months maybe years away from society till he can better himself and try to heal his wretched soul much like you I will give you and example -->

I HATE HER SO MUCH NOW I WANT TO KILL HER AND HER GANG.

IF I SEE HER, I WILL KILL HER ON SIGHT.

THIS IS GETTING TOO MUCH!

SHE DONT EVEN DEERVE TO DIE, THAT WILL BE FAR TO COOL AND EASY ON HER
SHE DESERVE A SLOW DEATH WITH TORTURE.

ACID ON HER PLASTIC FACE AND A DIRECT SHOT IN THE ASS AND FAKE BOOBS.

THIS IS GETTING SO MUCH OVER THE LIMIT OF THE BELIEVABLE!

THE DAY SOMEONE CREATED ETHIC, HER NAME WAS NOT IN THE BOOK.

OH AND SHE CALL HER OSN SASHA, YET SHE CALLED HERSLEF SASHA CHERNUA TOO IN THE PAST. AND LONG BEFORE THE BIRTH OF ALEXANDER.
WHY IS THAT?
THE SECOND SHE WILL DIE I WILL FEEL SO HAPPY AND GRATEFUL.
I DO HOPE SOMEONE CRAZE OR VERY LUCID ELIMINATE HER.

JAIL WILL BE TOO GOOD ON A BEAST LIKE HER.

Don't believe that she got a 15 million offer, which is funny because Mel's side last week said she asked for 10 million and her side denied any such offer , now she saying it's 15 million and she refused. And what was the point of staying with him for months after the incident, going to his church, to his premiers if it wasn't about the money, especially since you say you feared him, disconnect. Why not call the police when he hit you, there's no way the police wouldn't have arrested him on the spot with your injures visible. And why release the tapes , if not because you knew they wouldn't be admissible in court but were hoping to win the court of public opinion, and make it so unpleasant for Mel Gibson that he would out of desperation make a settlement offer just to get the story off of the front pages. You say you didn't release the tapes, so how did Radar get the tapes AND then get pictures that you again would only have

This is all about money and her wanting some of Mel Gibson's.

When Paul McCartney and Heather Mills first broke up, Paul offered Mills $30 mil. Heather TURNED IT DOWN and they went to court. In the final divorce judgement, which was made public, the reason Mills turned down the generous offer of $30 mil was stated. Heather was asking for $250 mil -- yep, that's one quarter of a billion.

Oksana is the Russian version of Mills. She turned down $15 mil because she thought by threatening Gibson with the tapes and photos she had the leverage to go for the jackpot. She's just like Mills. She's going for the big money and is arrogant enough to think she can get it.
