Oksana Grigorieva -- Extortion Claim a Red Herring

Sources connected with Oksana Grigorieva tell TMZ there is "no evidence" to support Mel Gibson's claim that she tried to extort him.

As one source puts it, "Mel and his team are inventing false charges against Oksana as a retaliatory measure to take the heat off of Mel."

The source says Mel's people are trying "to stem the tide of public opinion against Mel Gibson for his continued bigotry and acts of physical and verbal abuse [by] spreading vicious and false rumors that Oksana engaged in an extortion plot against him."

In the words of Judge Judy - "If it doesn't make sense, it's not true."
What makes more sense -

Mel abused Oksana, risking his already fragile career, his status, his freedom, his money, his child...

OR

Oksans, fearing the impending loss of her meal-ticket, fabricates the entire mess for financial purposes...

Now, put on your "Common Sense" caps folks...It's not that difficult to see what's really going on...


TEAM MEL!!!!!

Russian's main newspaper has permanently remover 301 articles on Oksana Chernuha.
She changed her name from "Chernuha" to "Grigorieva" because it sounded better in Russian.

She's not political, so why "permanently removed" . Here's the link.

"The lady doth protest too much"

The quote "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." comes from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Act III, scene II. The phrase has come to mean that one can "insist so passionately about something not being true that people suspect the opposite of what one is saying.

Read the Gibson/Oksana archives at People Magazine news. Last year Oksana raved to Hello and People that Mel was the greatest father (on several interviews). "He's great with kids," "he's a great father," she said. Now she calls him an abuser. Gold-digger wants an Elin Woods jackpot. Mel, go through her interviews when she discussed her pregnancy and right after her baby was born. She repeatedly told the media you were the best father.

Someone needs to take that baby away from the both of them until they stop all this nonsense. He is out of control and does need medication. She is someone who latches onto rich men and has their babies. Does she really care about her kids? Her ex-husband should take the little boy so he is out of all of this and maybe Mel's ex-wife or his daughter should take little Lucia and keep her safe.

Who cares about public opinion. If this isn't a ruse, then public opinion has no room. It should be all meat and potatoes. To the point, get the job done, and get on with their lives. The View could never turn my opinion. A bunch of loud mouth yapping women who basically gossip about everything. Whoopi though has my respect. She tactfully stood her ground gracefully, and rightfully when it came to her defense of Mel's character.

I don't believe this one bit!

Those Tape recordings were done before oksana brought about this law suit where Mel says over and over that she used him for his money. calling her a gold digger and so forth.

Mel didn't know he was being recorded.

So it is obvious that Mel Gibson believes that she DID try and use him for his money and tried to bleed him dry.

You can't hide it. We all heard it.

Oksana has a history of lying and manipulating people. Go online and look for prior interviews as well as other sources. Mel has his issues but this really screams set up by the 40 year old aging unsuccessful singer who had claimed to be pregnant by him. Since Oksana has done this twice there is a behavioral pattern with this, too. A call girl by any other name is still a .....
