Mediation Sources Call Oksana's Black Eye 'Absurd'

7/29/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources involved in the mediation between Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson are scoffing at a newly released photo showing Oksana with a black eye.

00712_Oksana_Grigorieva_ex_getty_03

According to the sources, the notion that Oksana held back the photo is "absurd." As one source said, "She produced photos of her mouth showing the damage to her veneers, she testified in great detail about the Jan. 6 incident. If she had a black eye she would have said it."

The sources also say, on the financial end, Oksana held every piece of damaging evidence over Mel Gibson's head -- notably the tapes -- and that is what produced a $15 million settlement.  One source said, "If there was a black eye it would have been $16 million."

And the sources say the day after the alleged incident Oksana's dentist never made any mention of a black eye -- and two days after the alleged incident the pediatrician she saw also failed to observe a bruised eye.

The sources note something else ... there was an ironclad confidentiality agreement in the settlement -- so it would have been pointless for Oksana to hold anything back because it could never be used again.

She's a stereotype for all gold diggers who try and extort celebrities. Same ole' same ole. Mel may not be a saint, (then again none of us are)..but this lady is truly proving herself to be one conniving and calculated "lady" you want to stay far away from.

I can't believe people still think this is all a con job by this woman. Have you people not heard the tapes? Mel Gibson is clearly psychotic and any person in that stage of rage and anger is capable of putting his hands on a woman. This lowlife bastard is a racist, woman-beating pig and deserves to rot in jail like a regular person would. At the very least, he is guilty of some profound mental pain and anguish upon this woman and her kids.

Also, why would Mel offer $15 million if he had nothing to hide? Why not charge her with extortion then? All of a sudden, the taped are "leaked" and he cries extortion when he was willing to pay the money prior to that? Come on people, have at least an ounce of common sense.

Personally, you couldn't pay me to support any future Mel endeavors. He can't fool me with his holier than thou nonsense anymore.

Amba: Oink$ana co-wrote that with Claudia Brant. If you're not familiar with Claudia, look her up.

A modern Ave Maria? Oh please.

This woman is very calculating and manipulative. I am not saying Mel was right to hit her, but really... We don't know what this woman put him through to provoke these rantings. With a woman like this, I can speculate her being very untrustworthy (perhaps even unfaithful) solely for the purpose of getting him to say/do these things and record it. It wouldn't be the first time people!
Also, the 15 million dollar deal... Does her releasing these recordings nullify the arrangement since she clearly didn't hold her end of the deal?
As for this picture... Jeez. Can we say Photoshop? And who cares? She clearly is just playing the game here. It's not enough to get rich. She has to make sure she gets good and famous first. Since, as Mel said, her singing career is a joke!
Again, I'm not saying it's okay to hurt people. But I really doubt this pathetic woman has any feelings to begin with. Just sayin'..

Mel could have agreed to paying her money even if not guilty of the things she accused him of - just to get rid of her. But then she decided it just wasn't enough money for the lifestyle she thinks she deserves.

Everyone who calls Oksana a gold digger - listen to this song that she wrote: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJMgYhWVfsc&feature=related This is most beautiful musical written by a modern composer, a true modern "Ave Maria".
I was in the Mel's camp before I heard this song, but now I do beleive her, whatever the sites like tmz.com write about her. She is a great composer, and I wish Oksana all the best luck in her legal suits over the rights to her compositions, and I wish that Selin Dion sings her songs one day.
What a shame what Mel did to this talented beautiful woman! I hope that Oksana get her reputation restored and compensated for all sufferings and moral distress caused by this maniac.
---------------------------------------------

Comparing anything composed by Oksana with the Ave Maria is sacrilege.

She just not that talented.

Oh - and last I checked the Blessed Virgin Mary didn't sell out her child to the tabloids in they style of Oksana. In order to protect Jesus she fled with Him to Egypt. That's what mothers.... REAL MOTHERS do!

I don't believe Mel Gibson or his very well paid spin doctors. It's clear he can hire the best whereas Oksana cannot. This is sheer BS spin from the Gibson camp.

TMZ so called "Sources" are full of Sh*t and everyone here knows it, Multiple times this so called source contradicted themself in the articles.

Oh and btw 1 million extra for a black eye?>?>? WTF! Should have been way more.

Also this means TMZ believes the source confirms Mel hit her cause the veener incident was invoved in the mediation and was agreed to under the would be settlement.

HE ADMITS IT ! YAY finally the douche!

THAT MEANS FOR YOU TMZ READING MORONS WITH HALF A BRAIN OUT THERE THAT HE ADMITS HE ASSAULTED HER AND WANTS TO PAY HER TO SHUT UP ABOUT IT.

So much for Mel the great now you know he is a s***b*g and a woman beater....................his poor poor fans who stuck up for him.
