Oksana

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."

The more she says the more unbelievable she is. High drama, sensationalism, and whatever else she thinks might sell. Perhaps they should check her out for mental illness.

29. I understand completely but my dad did beat (to all) and she still pushed, alcoholism makes the whole family sick. But, this was from years and years of slowly building up (not suddenly meeting someone and she never pushed buttons like that, never...not with manipulation for gain) plus the heart ache of a child dying in a car crash at a young age thrown in the mix. The anger a child will feel at both sides is huge. Sometimes it easier to understand the alcoholic. Please, break the cycle. You will repeat the pattern and pass it down to your children if you are not aware of your words, tone and actions. Want what is best for your future GRANDCHILDREN when you are raising your own little ones, it makes you stop and think before you just react.

This is why some of us recognize that something is amiss with Oksana. She is actually the one with the most problems, passive-aggressive, gold digger liar, now desperate to find an outlet to conceal her lies and possible crimes (and probably past).

There's a saying, " give a person enough rope and eventually they will hang themselves with it". The more she keeps talking, the tighter the rope is around her neck.....LOL

And Mel is smart enough to know this. He has been dead quiet all along. I think he knows she will hang himself if he just stays calm and keeps his mouth shut. Maybe it even makes her more irritated.

It´s like the taped telephoneconversation, only the roles have changed :)

THAT is flippin' hysterical!
Their cheese is totally off the cracker.
Mel's lawyers must be ecstatic over this latest segment to the stick-figure-drawn farce & charade.
So blatant, so obvious ... -such liars and pathetic cons.
-a jury must have this one!

.... sorry, but this is just a total psychedelic cherry on top.
From baby pimples to Harvey kidnapped and stripped naked ... I am rolling over here.
I can only imagine TMZ's inter-office reaction .... -HIGHLARIOUS!!!

To John Stone: stupid cows like this keep sh*t coming and coming they are so used to lying that they don't have the faculties to actually realize when their stories hit uber-ridiculous.
