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.

Hello, those who call Oksana a gold digger. Anyone who wrote a songe like Un Dia Llegara is capable of making his own money in this country. Even if you compare Oksana with Robin - the latter was just a nurse, while Oksana is a great composer, well known long before she met Mel. Why people are so biased against any pretty girl just for her being pretty, being from Russia and dating rich guys? I just don't get this
- why is that Robin so good for being a bare foot, silent and pregnant for 28 years, while someone who write songs like that is considered a gold digger? Robin had no talents to make any money of her own, so she stayed with him as long as nothing
threatened to her family trust funds. Oksana decided to fight openly and show everyone who Mel really is because she IS a talent and personality even WIHOUT Mel. I think she was really hurt by him, and the purpose of releasing the tapes was to receive his open apologies to her, and not the money, because he REALLY, REALLY humiliated her. She's Russian with all the national character specifics, she is an acclaimed composer, and her motivation may be much more compex than just the money. Mel has chosen waaay too sophysticated woman to mess with.

He hit her. I don't care if there are marks to prove it or not.
He'd have positioned himself outside of TMZ's headquarters had he not.

This woman sucked the life out of Timothy Dalton and now is trying to put the nail if Mel's coffin. Mel's rants were outrageous and can not be condoned. Two or three tapes were satisfactory. His career is over for atleast 3-5years.
Nonetheless, somebody tell this woman enough with the plastic surgery. It looks like her face is about to fall off her skull only to be held on by her surgically bloated lips. This woman has no empathy for what her children will go through now that this info is public. She is s chicken-head snake of the first degree. Imagine asking for 15 million dollars knowing you did not earn a penny of it. Oksana the Moocher. She should be tarred and feathered and made to be interviewed by Barbara Walters as to how she weaseled her way in the pockets of so many Hollywood men. Also, maybe ask her if she is a Russian spy. I guarantee she swore she was on birth control each time she schemed to get pregnant. This type of behavior is usually modeled after a mother or mother figure. Radaronline's David J. Pecker, Chairman, President and CEO of American Media, Inc. (AMI) must be getting some great treatment from Oksana. Im sure this guy will do anything to help save his company which was 1.1BILLION in debt at the end of 2009, until the bondholders came in to help a bit. I will **** my pants if hear of Oksana dating anyone remotely connected to Radaronline. Keep up the entertainment TMZ and Radar. One more thing, doesn't Oksana look like E.T. the grey little alien. Give this broad some M&M's and send her home.

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.
---------------------------------------------

The only thing missing from this post: "Paid for by the new PR rep now employed by Oksana." You were never on Team Mel to begin with.

Her voice is the worst thing about her music. What Mel "did" for this "woman" was to invest $5mil in recording, writing lyrics, and videos and producing her music through his company, ICON. "Beautiful Heartache" was panned by many professional critics and did not sell. So Oksana persuaded Mel to invest even more of his time, resources and money in producing yet another CD she now wants released. No one was interested in Oksana before Mel came along. This is well-known throughout LA, so I would suggest to the above poster to kindly get real.

"Absurd" is a polite word for Oxxy's eye story. I can get one of those eyes to! I just drive over to Cinema Secrets in Burbank and have one of their make-up artists color one on my face!

HarlotOHara: Oksana does want to flee from this trash. She has real expressions of interest from several well knowen Russian production companies, and they are interested in organizing a tour for her (however, I don't think it's a good idea for her to sing her songs, she needs to sell them to really good singers). The sad thing is she won't be ever able to flee (for legal reasons).

Um....couldn't the reason she held back the picture be because of the "ironclad" confidentiality agreement? And, since when does a mediated child custody agreement trump a crime? Sorry, TMZ, this doesn't make a lick of sense.

So who has Oskana signed with before Gibson or Icon records? How many records has she sold? Who is her music producer? Why haven't we heard of this super-star before? Why is she claiming friends are having to bring her food to feed herself and Dalton's kid/ Mel's baby because Mel won't give her any money? (via Russian papers...Oskana's "friend".) What is she spending Dalton's child support on? Where is her funds from making so much money off her spectacular music career? Mel Gibson let his baby go hungry? no formula or baby food? She was always out shopping via photo ops, must have some money through some source. Lawyer shopped, but no food for the kids??

please    

He took the bait, you have to blame him some for using awful judgment and trusting someone he knew little about.
He will probably look back at this when something triggers his mind and wonder what in the world he could have been thinking for the rest of his life.
