Oksana Held Back Cards During Mediation with Mel

7/29/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources directly connected with Oksana Grigorieva tell TMZ that she purposely kept at least one key piece of evidence out of play during the mediation with Mel Gibson  -- alleged photos of her black eye.

As we first reported, Sheriff's investigators are taking a hard look at the details of that 2-day negotiation because they believe it is relevant to Mel's extortion claim against Oksana -- and her domestic violence claim against Mel.

The source -- who's not a member of Oksana's legal team -- says Oksana never made an issue of the alleged black eye or whipped out pics of it during the mediation because she felt, at that point, that she had more than enough on the table -- for instance, the secretly recorded telephone rant.

There are reports that Oksana suffered the injury to her eye during the Jan. 6 blowout.

Now the obvious question is, why hold anything back? Several sources tell us the intent of the mediation was to lay everything out and then hammer out a deal. Once it was signed all evidence would be confidential, we're told, so any unused ammo would be rendered useless.

The talks ended with Mel's side offering Oksana $15 million -- which she first accepted ... before reneging on the deal.

Idiot!    

Of course this russian whore held back information. Like other russian whores, this is a MONEY GRAB. It's all about the money, and she held this one thing out, in case she didn't get the amount she wanted. Then, when she didn't get EVERYTHING she wanted, she backed out, began her terrorist pr campaign while trying to play the innocent victim, claiming "it's not about the money, it's about my child". BULLSH*T; it's all about the money to this gold digging russian whore.

Mel's a douchebag, but she's worse; I hope she gets deported...

The only reason she hel back was b/c....THERE WAS NO BLACK EYE PIC!!!

THIS IDEA CAME AFTER AS SHE WAS LEAKING THOSE TAPES...

also, the pic taken by the dentist does not show a black eye! since supposedly these pics were taken on the same day, the next day...

also, we have noticed how OG cannot keep her mouth shut...why would she not say she has a better pic of her bruised eye when they leaked the pic?

i believe she is just "coming up" with the evidence any time she needs a little bit more evidence...

IF she had the BLACK EYED PICS( hehe PEAS) why not use it during the mediation? she may have gotten more than the 15 mil...so the fact that she thought she had enough on the table doesn't make since esp since we know...

SHE BELIEVED SHE DESERVED MORE SO WHY NOT USE THE PIC TO UP THE MONEY?

The only real photo Oksana Grigorieva has held back is one which portrays her as she really is:

@it'smeagain: I have to check those photos to see if you are correct. I don't know whether the teeth and the eye are same beating.....You make an interesting point, except for the fact that Gibson admits assaulting her. As I said the tapes were potentially career ending for Gibson because the show how ugly his soul i deep inside. He's finished. The pictures, if real, are evidence of a crime and she couldn't give those up without committing a crime by shielding him. Remember that DA's charge spouses without the testimony of the victim all the time. She couldn't offer the tapes in any pay-off without tacitly committing a crime herself. The tapes she could offer because they are just humiliating to Gibson. I'm betting she wanted the 15m and a 3rd party sold the tapes to Radar. (which is why TMZ/hlevin are taking Gibson's side) Once the tapes were out the deal was off. That lady wanted the 15m believe me. Tapes with this kind of news value always fond the light of day. Gibson is really out of his mind and stupid.

Correction there. I meant to say she couldn't offer the pix without being an accomplice or shielding him from a crime against the state, battery.

Yarner...Mel claims she hit him. Isn't that what The View was playing the other day? What about the allegation that she was shaking the baby. Now THAT is stupid! Babies dies from shaken baby syndrom or they can become severly injured from being shaken. Supposedly Mel was trying to keep her from doing that. I think Ox went off the deep end at some point. It's not all Mel. She wanted to reconcile and he didn't. She wanted marriage and he didn't. With January 3 being his birthday, I would bet that Ox was put out because he spent time with his first family. Ox may have been stewing over that and then here go the fireworks on January 6. I also think that is part of the reason why she didn't let him have Lucia on Father's Day. In her warpped mind she probably figured she would get him back on Father's Day. In other words, you spent your birthday with your other family, then you spend Father's Day with them, too! There is more to this story than we know.

Yarner ... Mel never admitted hitting that s***bag.
Also, Mel hasn't been charged -so your bullsh(i)t excuse for her becoming "an accomplice ... blah blah blah) is f'ked up fiction you made up when you couldn't rationalize what she's done.
Nice try with the Levin fiction too. TMZ got first-hand evidence that your lying s***bag is just that -a lying s***bag.
Not only that but this site is spearheaded by a person with legal expertise (unlike whatever crackaddict-site you've been following).
-Yes, yarner, you take this mornin's prize of ueber-douche, congratulations!!!

ROL is a skank's dream site! Get this--they are now 'exclusively' reporting the secret email to Ox's lawyer right after the beating she took from Mel. Can you believe this? She asked for the lawyer to call her because she was lost. Any lawyer in their right frame of mind would advise a client to go immediately to the police station and they would meet them there to file a report. This is just nuts. I wonder if the lawyer just told her to keep taping. Maybe the lawyer Ox had saw a gravy train there. Ridiculous...

The pictures of her "black eye" show nothing of the kind. There is no evidence of swelling or puffiness, the eye is completely clear and the only "coloration" is from a vein. I don't see any signs of trauma that would indicate someone had punched her.

Don't tell me...let me guess. She withheld the "alleged" black eye photo because, as she told her dentist, she was "trying to protect Mel." Judges don't like the little games this woman is playing. And she is about to find that out.
