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.

Lemonade, Mel's lawyers would advise him to plead the 5th. He was meeting with law enforcement for something entirely different. Pleading the 5th is standard practice. Any kid from law school could tell you that.

1 - Notice they say 'Former Lawyer'. Hmmm, she seems to be leaving a trail of professional people who dont want any part of this.

2 - I'm starting to think she turned down the 15 mil, because of the stipulations that were in the contract. I'm betting Mel maybe wanted most of that money to go into a trust fund for the baby? Which leave Ok$ana unable to access the funds ? There's a reasons she turned it down, maybe she wouldnt have access to the money until the baby turned 18. Somethings up with that, other then she wanted more money. There had to be something he had put in the contract, as to the reason she wouldnt sign it, other then more money.

Either way, she's gonna lose in this, and I hope Mel's lawyers go in for the kill, and she is left with nothing. It will be costly for him, but to properly clear his name, and discredit her allegations against him, he needs to fight this till the bitter end. But I love how everyone keeps quitting her team. It shows she is not being truthful. I mean even Gloria Alled, wont touch it.

or any normal thinking human being.

Pleading the fifth is not the same as guilty.

They've all gotta be laughing like hell, behind the scenes
about this whole mess. They're probably Team Gibson at this
point.

TMZ, you have no creditability at all. YOU are the ones who reported Lindsay was a meth addict. WRONG! Now you are running a campaign against Oksana trying to get the pubic on Mel's side? something got deleted, #10 now #9.

Nobody is trying to get on anyone's "pubic" side. As for Oksana, she cooked her own goose by leaking to ROL (trash tabloid) pics of baby acne, black eye w/no swelling-it looked like make-up, teeth with veneers missing, no tissue damage to mouth, gum or lips, edited or altered tapes of rants although racist comments showing how much Oksana could push Mel Gibson's buttons. Oksana showed no fear for her children or self of Mel coming over and beating her either by secretly recording and pushing his buttons. The tapes showed that Mel Gibson needs to continue his counseling and Oksana is a sociopath gold-digging, exploiting b!tch!! Plus Radar Online needs to be sued!

That was most likely the reason why Oksana refused to take the $15 million -- because Lucia was getting the bulk of the money. Why else would you turn down an offer from a man that you were in a relationship with for 3(?) years and that you were not married to. Under the cir***stances, $15 million, a house and a nanny seems like a decent deal to most people, but there obviously wasn't enough on the table FOR HER.

"you will never convince 99% of the population that Mel Gibson is an insecure, abusive, woman hating drunk."

Truer words were never spoken : )

Thanks for providing that quote to clear Mel's name!
