Oksana's Former Lawyer to

Meet with Investigators

8/4/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ L.A. County Sheriff's deputies have contacted Oksana Grigorieva's former lawyer ... because they want to know if Oksana said anything inconsistent or incriminating during her mediation with Mel Gibson.

Sources tell us deputies have contacted attorney Eric George asking to schedule a meeting.

We're told Sheriff's investigators want to ask George about both Oksana's brutality claims as well as Mel's allegation that she tried to extort him.

Sources say George will cooperate with authorities and speak with them. George is allowed to discuss what occurred during the mediation however conversations he had with Oksana are protected by the attorney-client privilege.

Our law enforcement sources say investigators are particularly interested in what Oksana is reportedly claiming now, but failed to claim during the mediation, notably:

- During the mediation she never expressed any concern that Mel was a threat to baby Lucia
- During the mediation she never said that Mel threatened to kill her, Alexander, Lucia, and himself
- During the mediation she never made any mention nor produced any photo of a black eye

We're also told investigators are interested in any information related to the 2 text messages Oksana sent Mel during the mediation -- saying she taped his phone calls because he was not taking care of her.  Mel's people claim they have hard proof Oksana left a trail of evidence showing she was holding the tapes over Mel's head for a price.

As we first reported George negotiated a whopping $15 million settlement package for Oksana which she later disavowed.

The date for the meeting with Sheriff's deputies has not been set, but it will happen soon.

I'd seriously doubt this report is correct. Normally anything said during a mediation is absolutely confidential.

Yup TMZ is backtracking since on Monday's TMZ Live their staff members said they believed Mel hit Oksana and they Robyn had motive to lie......

TMZ has been wrong on so many things it's incredible.

Yeah yeah Lindsay is a meth head and Lebron was going to the knicks yayayayaya...

Heavens...where does one begin?

CRAVEN: Sworn statements given to attorneys/investigators during a formal deposition are not confidential in the sense that they are protected by attorney/client privilege.

SQIGGY: Those two junior staffers gave their opinions...not the opinions represented by senior staffers. Also, they are not attorneys. They also did not state that Robyn lied. Further, they had absolutely nothing positive to say about Oksana...rather, they inferred the exact opposite. TMZ is not backtracking; and they've been far more accurate than RADAR.

Gee golly.

A few reasonable, mature people kick around a few puzzling questions, try as best they can to substantiate what they say with supporting links, try to calming arrive at the truth in a respected manner -

And they get accused of being paid to promote a smear campaign against Miss Oksana.

LMAO!

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Am I the only one that has noticed that even on ROL boards--the OX has lost her supporters?? (yes, sadly, I admit to going over and reading their ****--but only to see how the posters are poasting!) By far, it's team Mel over there.... every time I've checked anyway. EVEN THERE!

You can remain on this sinking ship (most of us expect you will go to the ocean floor on it) but you will never convince 99% of the population that Mel Gibson is an insecure, abusive, woman hating drunk. Shame on TMZ for protecting the abuser.

Hey guys, looks like we have a "convert" here. Went from Oksana's Team to Mel's Team all in the time it took to make one post. By default, I guess the "abuser" referred to in the last sentence is Oksana.

Yeah Team Mel!!!
