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.

Oksana has sunk really low if she has to use Michael Lohan's PR people. I'm sure the reason for the PR shift is more than money. Who wants to represent a liar that will bring down your reputation as a PR specialist?

I didn't expect Gloria Allred to take up her cause. She may be a bit of a fame whore herself, but even she can smell the stink on this a mile away.

Oksana should have taken the $15 million and run. There are no more unsuspecting victims out there for her. Her cards have been exposed.

My hope is that the fathers of both children can save them from her mess.

I just heard the "terrorizing" voice mail comments Mel made on Radar online, big whoop! Simon Cowell made the same kind of comments on AI and XFactor, hmmmmmm is Cowell a terrorist? Maybe Mel can take Simon's place on AI? I would watch. Maybe KGB gal is going to claim Simon is part of the plot to take Harvey to the desert on a horse with no name?

Team Mel.

Grigorieva has been visiting different attorneys, including Mark Lane, who is a defamation and slander specialist.

ROFLMAO! LOL!

wth? who has been the one slandering? defaming? if she didn't "leak" those tapes and pics, none of this would have happened...i am not an attorney but i don't think she has any suit for defamation or slander...she, however, may end up on the other side of that suit!

It's unbelievable that Dalton hasn't gone and taken his son out of her care, especially during this fiasco. Shows me, maybe he never wanted this kid to begin with.

Dude knew she was lying, and didnt want any part of it, so he jumped ship. Doubt it had anything to do with money, cause if Jaffe believed in her claims against Mel Gibson, he knew he would have been paid at some point when they won the case against Mel. He knew her allegations against Mel were false.

Good, someone with a concious !

Amagod on Radar was hinting that she was going to sue people for making slanderous internet comments and warned everyone to stop or they could be sued. Then he backed off a bit and said that only those who were being paid to post were at risk of this lawsuit.

Sadly, I agree with you.

Dalton made a comment in an interview years ago... can't remember exactly what was said but the question posed was about the news he was becoming a father... he responded along the lines of "Who said I wanted to?"

Then there were comments Gibson made on those tapes that made it appear Oksana complained about Dalton as a father.

That poor kid. Having to read and hear that stuff...

hmmm has freedom of speech stopped in America? This is truly an attack on our rights for freedom of thoughts. When you have to go underground and whisper of what you think is right? To be paranoid in speaking what you feel is a sham that no evidence of substantial worth has been offered. When court orders have been totally ignored because personal tapes have been released to the public with a one sided slant? She is going to go after the public for being upset American Laws of Court have been ignored? How horrendous. Stalinist at this best in America!

Can we say "GRABBING AT THE STRAWS"?

maybe she is as paranoid as some of the posters here and think we are getting paid..hmmm..yea we better wait for that letter from OG's team asking whether we are on Mel's payroll.

it would be an honor to rep him, but sadly not i...NO one has to pay me to think for myself and know what an evil, lying , no talent b*tch she is!
