Oksana's Smoking Gun in

Brutality Allegation

7/29/2010 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected to Oksana Grigorieva tell TMZ that there are "third party witnesses" who will tell L.A. County Sheriff's investigators they saw Mel Gibson punch Oksana on January 6 during the blowout at her home.

The sources say the witnesses have not yet spoken to Sheriff's investigators, but they will come forward soon.

Although the sources would not be specific, it appears at least one of the witnesses is someone who works with Oksana on her music. The sources also say at least one of the third party witnesses saw Mel pull a gun on Oksana on January 6, after he allegedly punched her.

We're told Oksana's 12-year old son Alexander has already spoken with Sheriff's investigators. Sources say during the mediation in May, Oksana said Alexander was hiding under the bed during the January 6 argument.

No he didn't, this is why the rumor game is so bad, things, supposed facts, get embellished, changed, added to the story. When he met with investigators to discuss the extortion investigation he refused at that time to discuss the alleged physical abuse case which is his right. He has not "pled" to anything, there have been no charges to make a plea against.

She probably promise to give them a million since in her delusional mind she thinks she's getting more than 15 million. The day this " witness " have to give their statement, watch, they either gonna back out or they gonna pull a " dentist excuse " and say it the incident was altered....

"Her son was hiding under the bed."
That sickens me. I wonder if he'd have pulled that in front of his own sons? There is no excusing his behavior.

lemonade, when I read that I had a feeling it was the journalist words, not mel's. But in all investigations, all suspects are protected by this. He had a lawyer present, I am sure. While the investigators are asking questions the attorney will say, "don't answer that" or advise the person doing the questioning to move to another point. This is our constitutional right.

The reason being is some investigators get pretty tricky in the questioning and can extract answers that aren't the real answer.

I am sure the attorney said let's do this but let's stick to the extortion elements. I doubt that Mel said "I plead the 5th." Great for headlines though.

Just food for thought, I work with people that have reporters come to them all the time and interview them. We are always amazed how what was told to them and what got printed in the paper got so twisted. The people just shake their head...the media does twist things to make it stand out, sometimes outright lying.

This doesn't make any sense. If she truly had one or two witnesses how come the Sherriff's department didn't know about that from the get go and do interviews while investigating her abuse claim. I'm sorry, new guy comes on board and now she's got a witness. Wonder if that Maid/Nanny? that she hired that Mel threatened to expose was offered a green card for testimony.

OK so why isn't she being investigated for Child Endangerment if she stayed with Mel after that incident? Putting both her 12 y/o and baby in harms way. And WHY didn't Tim Dalton step in for the benefit of HIS SON?!?!?!?

This whole thing stinks to high heaven. You can be a racist pig and STILL be a good parent.

So ROL has what is supposed to be an e-mail that she sent to the lawyer the day after the Jan. 6th event. She supposedly details the events of the night before and NO GUN is mentioned. Nor are witnesses mentioned. #1--I would think as an officer of the court the lawyer would have been legally bound to report this to the police and morally bound to tell her to leave him. #2--I just don't believe anything anymore. This info should have been involved with the child custody review and if it was it was deemed unreliable.

Funny how celebs like Naomi Campbell can repeatedly blow up and actually physically hurt someone (more than once), over a pair of jeans, but she is forgiven.

But when Mel has every right to be absolutely livid with a woman who is attempting to extort him as well as keep his child away from him in a very public display, and he screams at her (yes offensive language) and calls her some names, he is considered the devil.

Could it be that the public isn't so worried about her "safety" but is more pissed off at him because of his supposed rasism? Is the villifying of Mel basically because of the rasist, sexist and anti semetic verbage?

You, obviously, haven't read any of the quotes from her mother when she was with Dalton. You could see the lack of class and/or dignity clearly from that. They knew she hit paydirt and had no problem voicing that to all who cared to listen.

Just hold on here. She is now claiming there was other people/witnesses in the room while this was happening. When the sheriff went to question the both of them about the incident, didn't they ask the most obvious question. Was there anyone else in the room at the time of the incident? How could this detail be overlooked.
