Claims Mel Targeted

TMZ Exec in Death Plot

7/23/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a story circulating that Oksana Grigorieva told authorities Mel Gibson plotted to break the kneecaps of a "Hollywood figure." Well that story is about TMZ's Harvey Levin, spoon-fed by Oksana's people.

The story is much wilder than reported.  Earlier this week, Oksana's rep, Steve Jaffe, told Harvey that Mel had described to Oksana a plot to kill Harvey.  Jaffe said Oksana claimed Mel told her he was furious that TMZ broke the story about the anti-Semitic rant following Mel's 2006 DUI arrest.  Jaffe said Oksana told him Mel had said he wanted the "blood of Jews" on his hands.

According to Jaffe, Oksana said Mel told her he had someone do "surveillance" on Harvey earlier this year, having him followed to the gym at 4 AM.

The plan, Jaffe said, was to "kidnap" Harvey, strip him, take him deep into the desert, break his kneecaps and leave him to die.

Jaffe told Harvey the story on the heels of complaining that a particular TMZ post was not favorable enough to Oksana.

We checked the "kneecap" story out and determined it was false.  For starters, Oksana had the wrong gym.  More telling ... Oksana never mentioned a word of this to any of her lawyers while she tried negotiating a $15 million package in May during the mediation, using the tapes as her secret weapon.  One person involved in the mediation laughed, saying Oksana brought out every piece of ammunition imaginable to score a financial package, so why was this story mysteriously absent?

Oksana claims to have told the Sheriff's Department the story. It seems deputies took it so seriously ... they never even contacted Harvey to give him a heads up that someone wanted him dead ... allegedly.

UPDATE: Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ, "We categorically deny that any such information was ever given to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department."

TMZ is so biased in this story because they are mad that radaronline got the exclusive. You don't think they'd be pro-Oksana if she gave them the tapes instead of radaronline?

She's overplaying her hand. Trying to drag Harvey into it is just an attempt go keep the media on her side.

The Ox wants Harvey on her side. Since she doesn't have a chance in hell of blowing Harvey she's trying to get Jaffe to blow him for her.

Harvey, can you not tell this c*nt (yes, I called her that--horrid word.) has been reading this board and other public boards and making her desperate public comments since? Why I bet the idea occurred to her when you all nailed her lawyer shopping yesterday.

On another mom passed at 55 due to heart disease. The current pics of Mel do not look so good. He has the same ashen tone to his skin as she did and other I've seen that are not getting enough blood pumped. He has the type A personality, smoked all his life. (A couple of beers or a glass of wine might have been good for his blood but not for him with alcoholism. Take care of your stress, Mel!)

Wait, did Oskana just admit she was Mel in 2006?

Good... Now maybe TMZ will stop siding with the little twit, and realize no matter what she is saying now, dragging everyone under the sun into this including Harvey now, that all she wanted to do was extort money from Mel. I'm sorry if someone was trying to extort money from you, you'd be pretty pissed off as well. I believe her retraction of the 15 million dollar deal was because she did not like Mels payment plans. Oksana is full of it. Not to mention the picture RadarOnline is circulating of the baby's face supposed bruising on it, is BS. If you hit a baby in the face, there is going to be major brusing and major damage to that childs face. The picture Radar is circulating is a picture of a bug bite or a zit. How are they believing her crap? Some of the worlds worst killers, & extortionists, are women, who have landed themselves in prison because people finally saw through their crap. Just because someone is pissed off, and yells obsenities does not mean they are an abuser, or a killer. My mom pushed my dads buttons for years, when he was a drinker, he yelled some of the most hateful things at her, but he never laid a hand on her.
It looks like people are starting to see through this little twit named Oksana for all she's worth, a user, a liar, and extortionist. Also wondering why no one else has figured out SHE is the one who leaked those tapes. If she is the only one who had them in her posession, figure it out ! Come on. Wake up people !
