Oksana's Bodyguards Come to Her Defense

8/6/2010 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's bodyguards -- who are all U.S. military veterans -- are coming to Oksana's aid by taking a stand and making it clear they're with Oksana and against Mel Gibson.

Oksana's bodyguards come from a company called The Bodyguard Group -- a referral service for veterans -- and they've posted a scathing statement on their website that reads like a direct shot at Gibson.

The statement reads: "The Bodyguard Group has reviewed both versions of events and ALL of our members agree that ONLY Oksana is being 100% honest ... We ask that everyone support Oksana and take a stand against all men who abuse women and children."

While it may seem odd for bodyguards to be so vocal, the statement says, "We could not keep silent after the abuse Oksana suffered."

They did not work for her when she was being abused, They have only been with her for the last few months and are doing it for free. These are United States Veterans, so we should show them some respect. Most of the time they stay away from the cameras, I live on her street and they are really a bunch of nice guys, they are a group of U.S. Veterans, My family and I saw them on CNN all in Military uniform and also Protecting Celebrities when CNN did a story on them a few years ago.

UGH. These guys "The Bodyguard Group" are SUCH opportunistic WEASLES. They are the same group that supported Tila Tequila when she was at her craziest. They look for whoever is in the headlines and tag on to them to get press. They give Veterans a bad name. Shameful.

Wow talk about more useless press, of course they agree with her..she is paying them LMAO. If Mel hired them they would be calling her a gold digging bimbo. What a joke.

Everything except taking care of Lucia if you listen to her statements. What happened to living on credit cards?

LOL! What unadulterated bull. She can't get a reputable PR rep to represent her; RADAR's online rubbish has been exposed; so what is left? These thugs. She needs professional help, but the kind one finds on a psychiatrist's couch.

I hope that Mel's attorneys sues the pants off of these people!

The only people these "guards" are protecting her from is the TMZ reporters asking her questions. Now, if it's ROL they will let them roll right on up.

It's not like she has a bunch of crazed fans she needs protection from.

It's funny how bias someone can be towards the person signing their pay cheque.

I agree that she's paying them... and not just with money.

Last I checked, the Ft. Hood shooter was also in the US military service and had sworn an oath to defend the Constitution and the citizens of this land...

All kinds of people serve in the military and become veterans. To suggest they are all of unimpeachable integrity or judgement is ludicrous. Not all of them are all that intelligent, either, or they would find a different kind of career path.

I suggest someone look into the service records & financial statements of Hoaxsana's bodyguards.

I also think Mr. Gibson should sue their company & take them to the cleaners.

They have no law enforcement standing, no qualifications to make pronouncements, and have no role to play in the investigation. Like a different kind of Violate Kowal, they are simply looking to advance their own interests, and get some free PR as well as potential clients. Offering a new kind of service: "personal protection plus perjury on demand."

And maybe "tampering with evidence" as well.

We go all the way for the sex worker we protect.

Another Russian word for Hoaxsana: "aferistka" -- con woman: but of an almost unprecedented order of magnitude...

It's not very professional of the company to comment on an open case.
They have tried and convicted Mel based on RadarOnline and Oksana's
word.

Very very tacky behavior. What if one person in that company starts to
question Oksana's allegations? Do they get fired?

Low guys, very low.

Seems like the "Body Guard Group" is offering their services in exchange for media exposure.

Maybe they should change their name to the "Oksana Group".

Do you know for a fact that they are doing it for free? Someone is paying for their time and services, even if that someone is through jacked up prices to other clients. Just because you saw them on CNN doesn't mean squat. A good body guard service doesn't speak about their clients. Discretion is key. And I highly doubt that someone who lives on her street is going to post their name for all of the web to see.

You aren't by chance the "pediatrician" she saw, are you? LOL.
