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."

I r confused here.

Harvey is a gay man and a jew who humiliated Mel by exposing his unedited DUI arrest report. He controls part of the jew media and his coverage of Mel after the report was released has been less then favorable.

Why are people convinced Mel didn't say this?

If you believe the tapes were edited or spliced the WORDS: Wetbacks Ni**ers could not have been made or spliced together he said those words,Also he threatens his ex girlfriend's(the woman who bore his child) life multiple times on the tapes but it's so inconceivable he would want Harvey taken out? REALLY?

Are you forgetting this is the same man who in an interview said gays "Take it up the a**" when asked about gays? The same man who said his ex wife is not going to heaven but instead to hell in an interview, The same man who called a reporter promoting one of his moronic movies an a**hole when asked about is DUI rant.

Wow.

Just WOW.

Harvey, we love ya! Hope you got a laugh out of this!

I can't wait to hear what Ox has said next. Someone should write a book of the lies she tells. I am thinking she'll say that Mel drugged her, got her pregnant and made her a slave to him. (I still think she is UGLY! The girls on TMZ are MUCH BETTER looking than that piece of trash.)

Next thing we'll hear is that Mel claimed to Oksana that he is related to Hitler and wants to take over America.

Hey STEVE JAFFE! . You should be ashamed of yourself!!! I thought you were a decent guy. Being Jewish myself, I am appalled that you would live up to the expectations of anti-semites like Mel and sell your soul and ethics up the river to make a quick buck. You're were a nobody publicist before this, representing no "big name" celebrities and mostly businesses and restaurants. But now you hit it big with this whore and are LYING and Being GREEDY all to make a quick nickel, and living up to a negative Jewish stereotype. Thanks for being an unethical greedy yenta and setting back people's perceptions of our people.

"Blood Of Jews on His Hands"? Really??? REALLY????? What kind of a ludicrous statement is that? Who really speaks like that? That sounds more like a script from a period piece movie rather than any modern person's words. Perhaps those are Oksana's ridiculous words as she's a foreigner. But no. I think you told her to say that and you went too far. I feel bad for your lovely wife Susie Blakely. Like she really wants the bad press that you may bring to her for being involved with this skank.
Maybe you desperately need money or something since her show was cancelled, (which she was great on).

I think since the kid was born here, she gets some type of preferential treatment as far as remaining in the US. Not to bring other illegal aliens into the mix BUT - this country is FULL to brim with boarder-crossers who do not belong here...if eveyone is so pro "ship her azz home" why not take up that same stance with all the other illegals that have mirgrated from the south and are raping (for lack of a better term) this country - taking advantage of the "free" medical care, education, etc etc etc....

This story from Oksana is quite odd HOWEVER if you consider the source (that potentially being MEL), it's really not that un-believeable.

Where Mel made is biggest mistake - he should have paid her off and had her sign an agreement that NEITHER would talk about their relationship...had he done something like that, he'd be in a much better place.

At the end of the day, she still has him by the balls if other allegations are proven to be true

So what if she got the gym wrong? This is her retelling events as told to Mel as told from his investigator. You need to look at the larger picture here, Harvey.

Would Mel want to harm you? Hells yeah!

Do not be thrown off by inconsequential details that are easily explained away. Mel's a demented psychopath who has, in some respects, become his most famous character, Mad Max.

While he's mostly all sound and no fury, the man is clearly three fries short of a Happy Meal®.

Oksana is a nut and I don't believe a word she says. I think it will all come out in the end that she was trying to extort Mel all along and that she will be the one who gets jail time.
