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."

yes, you 'r' confused.
during fights (especially on the phone) people are apt to say all kinds of stupid crap... and when someone sets up a fight and pushes the others buttons you end up with idiotic meltdowns.
If she was actually feeling threatened, why didn't she seek police protection after the calls?

btw... where exactly do gays take it, if not "up the a**"?

There Oskana goes again, using her reverse psychology to manipulate for what she wants as she had done her entire life. First she had her mouthpiece, Jaffe release a statement demanding you refer to her as a victim, now she manipulates the commentors on Harvey's website she is monitoring by Mel-Jew bashing. Gibson fell for her ploy many times too when she was busy taping him on the phone, very clever..Oksana...NOT.

Initially I believed Oksana's side of the story... and if the tapes are real than I think she was right to catch Mel's anger on tape,...but now all of Oksana's continuous claims and stories just make her look bad.

I always wondered is this Gibsons kid? Any proof, DNA?. She is grasping at straws and starting to loose. Either way she set Gibson up got pregnant on purpose and after all said and done she will come out the winner. Gibsons career is all but over, Oksana has no career to worry about but, she will get money and child support to sponge off of and go on her merry way. Oksana is NO FOOL. She got Gibson good. How does Oksana who claims she has no money have lawyers, spoke people etc...Who is paying for this? Is she still in Gibsons house? I'm not defending Gibsons disgusting rants but until proof of her being hit is just a really bad fight. Oksana used Gibson and got him right in his ego and Gibson fell for it. I think Oksana is a "PRO."

Anyone have an eggtimer? That's about how long she has before she's arrested for extortion. Stupid girl... stupid stupid girl. Greedy. Anyone tried to extort money from me would get a few expletives too. Not that I can condone the threats of violence, but still... she orchestrated it to push every button he had, so she could record it and put him in the worst possible light. For money. (she really should have taken some Meisner-based acting classes before she attempted to read from a script).

This story is just dumb, and if true, it makes Oksana seem even more unbalanced, plus her lawyer doesn't sound too sane either. Anyway, where does it say in the law that it is illegal to rant and rave? This is exactly what Mel did on those tapes, he ranted and raved. There are no laws against being a crude, foul mouthed crazy bigot. Freedom of speech guarantees that. And after listening to those tapes again for the umpteenth time, I wonder if any of us noticed that Mel isn't always just raving, he is actually telling her why he's mad, and it's more than just not getting a blow job. What it comes down to is this; A Bi-polar, manic depressive who drinks (and shouldn't) having a relationship with a narcissistic personality type, who is no doubt a sociopath to boot. Bad combination, like mixing bleach and ammonia together, very toxic.
