Oksana Grigorieva's Publicist Jumps Ship

7/28/2010 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's spokesperson is tapping out of her war with Mel Gibson -- and TMZ has learned money played a big role in his departure.

Depending on who you talk to, Steve Jaffe either quit or was fired from his post as Oksana's PR flack.

We're told there was definitely a money issue -- as in Oksana doesn't have any to pay for Jaffe's services.

Sources close to Oksana say she was not happy with the job Jaffe was doing.  We're told Oksana was especially disappointed with how Jaffe handled the extortion allegations Gibson has made against her.

UPDATE: Jaffe wants to make it clear he was not the dumpee saying, "I've never been fired in the 35 years that I have done this." He confirmed that Oksana is short on funds, but says that was not the reason he quit.

I call "None of the Above." She's a psycho and is losing the PR war and he wanted to distance himself from her.

Talk about overkill. When you get on a story, you just beat it to death. Mel now, Lindsay before. Stop already.

Did Israeli spies record and release the Mel Gibson audio tapes to the public?

According to www.playbimbo.com it's a possiblity.

If Mel Gibson's girlfriend didn't release the audio tapes, who did? Israeli Mossad spies perhaps?

If the headline above sounds too far-fetched and conspiratorial,one should consider the old adage 'truth is stranger than fiction'; it may apply here. As outlined in Fox TV News reports and reported by numerous mainstream news outllets over the years, Israeli spies are rampant in America, spying on their political enemies and trying to discredit those who speak out against Zionism.

Oksana Grigorieva, Gibson's Russian ex-girlfriend and mother of their eight month old baby daughter, insists that she did not release the audio of the inflamatory calls to the public: "I didn't release anything and I'm not happy with the lies being spread", she said, as reported by People Magazine. Oksana and Gibson allegedly signed a contract in May agreeing that she would not release the tapes to the public. What's not clear thus far is why Grigorieva is not being charged with illegal wiretapping. Nevertheless, if she didn't release the tapes, who did? Who would have the motive and opportunity to do such a thing? The tapes appear to have been professionally recorded, and some experts contend that they are doctored and edited.

Sounds like he just came to his senses and realized, like everyone else, that she is a con artist.

Oh eff off FFS. You think they found the photos they released in the trash can or something? Or did you just not think of a way to tie those to wire tapping by Russian spies yet?

Mel was set up. She broke his heart and pushed all his buttons. Happened to me once. I went a little nuts. Mel is just a human being. If you prick him does he not bleed? Hell yes.

Why is it that practically every picture they show of her, she's looking off, like sly or sneaky? Obvious answer...

i understand "stranger than fiction "line but since we know OG to be a liar and has been we are also suspicious of her denial about these releases. i would not put it past her to have released these tapes and look straight into to your face and deny it. she has the ability to do that.

as for professional audio recording and altering them...over the years she had, through her music, come across various pple including some unscrupulous ones, i'm sure, who may be experts in that area. she was in Russia in March or April? can't remember which but she may certainly have contacted this person to make some alterations on these tapes.
perhaps her sister did not release the tapes, HOWEVER...why did she have them in the first place??? what was THAT purpose?
WHY DID SHE TAKE THEM TO RUSSIA EXCEPT TO CONTACT SOMEONE TO ALTER THEM??

doubt jeffe would have stepped down if he believed in her innocence...his other clients? lol i would think he had assistants who can work on their crisis and report to him..

if he actually believed this skank is being unfairly attacked and has been abused, he would stay with her, perhaps in the NAME OF INJUSTICE! LOL, that should be saved for Mel....

notice jaffe doesn't say HE stands behind her ..."Ms. Gorgorieva has repeatedly stated there is no credible evidence whatsoever of extortion by her, and SHE stands steadfastly by her statement." notice he did not say I STAND STEADFASTLY... VERY TELLING FOR ME!

this is definitely INJUSTICE to condemn a man just on a word of a known opportunist and a lying GOLD-DIGGER! with too many INCONSISTENCIES! no one wants to face those inconsistencies except for those who want the truth to be known, not just to follow blindly to whatever is told them!

jaffe also said "...but, also had to follow the judges' orders".

i imagine he was very frustrated all of their "ammunition" was out in public and they have no way of "spinning" them now since those were already exposed. also the skank couldn't keep her mouth shut during these past days!
