Mel's Babysitter:

He Freaked Out

Before Fight

8/14/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ the babysitter for Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva was front and center for the beginning of the now-famous January 6 blowup.

In the hours before the incident, Oksana went to a basketball game ... leaving Mel, baby Lucia and the babysitter at Mel's Malibu home.

According to sources connected with the case, the babysitter says Mel "began freaking out" while Oksana was gone, "slamming doors, cussing and screaming at someone on the phone."  The babysitter says Mel was screaming to someone on the phone, "I want to f**king destroy you."

We're told the babysitter called Oksana and urged her to come home because Mel was losing it.  The babysitter claims, "Mel was possessed and completely out of control."

Sources say the babysitter was present when Oksana returned home but left before anything physical occurred.

Other sources, however, question the babysitter's claims, because they say she never previously made any such allegations.

People connected with the babysitter tell us she didn't come forward with her story because she's fearful of Mel and is fighting stage 4 cancer and undergoing chemo.

how could she know there was anything physical going on if she left? when exactly did she leave? why say before if she wasn't there to know if there was anything physical period? did mel come to speak with her at any time while he was supposedly obsessed? yell at her for any reason? why would she be afraid of mel yelling at someone on the phone? it could have been work related, how many other directors and producers yell and shout in their homes and slam doors when dealing with work related troubles? i would imagine most do. why would she have assumed he was furious with oxana? and did she return to her work the next day? or did she quit? why didn't she call the authorities if she was so fearful of mel instead of calling oxana?

Why would she need a babysitter when she has a Nanny. So if a babysitter was there, then obviously tjr Nanny must not have been there. But Boinky stated that the Nanny and Alexander heard the noise in the bedroom (where the party was at, and Alexander was under the bed-then he came after he heard the noise) and they both came from different parts of the house to see what was going on.
Does anything seem strange to anyone about what I just wrote. Any inconsistencies? Nah....me neither! O.o

This story has as many holes in it as a sieve.
Ridiculous. And really, getting pretty boring, all this nonsense from Oinksana's camp.

Not sure about all that. But people are saying that his temper was witnessed by many people..in person. Not just on that particular night but many others. Remember he referred to the sitter in one of his phone calls? He said she works for him or not at all. She probably didn't want to jeopordize her job. Unless we're in the room who knows what did or didn't happen? I think they're both screwed up and need to wake up before social services takes the child away from both of them!

how many people were there that day - the babysitter, Oksana's mother, the audio guy, Sacha, Oksana, Mel, Oksana's sister,
No wonder Sacha had to go under the bed, the house was too full.
