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.

TMZ what was the DATE of the photo you used for Oksana in this article? Looks like you tried to make Oksana appear younger than she is? WHY would you do this?

ROL tried floating this story back in July. ROL stated the nanny was so scared she called oxy at the game saying mel was storming around the house and slamming doors. Of course back then there was no mention of this nanny/ babysitter having stage 4 cancer......

Oh come ON .... the "Destroy Mel Gibson" Juggernaut now bleeds into the weekend? Whoever is trying to manipulate public opinion with these stories has no grasp of PR. The sheer overkill involved in these daily stories detailing the supposed vileness of Mel has crossed over into the absurd. No wonder there's a backlash against Oksana, not just online but in the general population. She's truly a fool with no grasp of human nature. Overkill results in sympathy for Mel -- she doesn't grasp this? Familiar with the Russian psyche but the American psyche leaves her stumped? No wonder Oksana's 2 PR people quit. If THIS is what she planned to do weeks ago, release daily stories, each with new details and allegations which she pulls out of her ASS, nobody in their right mind who did PR for a living would agree to it.

Woman's a fool. I knew when the first tape was released that the longer this matter dragged on the more to Mel's benefit. And that's exactly what's happened. Hang in there, Mel. It may be a hard road, but you're going to be just fine in the end.

Oh, and the Stage 4 cancer -- I'm assuming that's meant to tug at the heart strings, elicit sympathy and somehow add weight to the authenticity of the testimony? LOL!! Gimme a break.

Hey Michael, why should you have access to her medical records?

Posted at 7:16 AM on Aug 14, 2010 by dd


Hmmm, I dont know...
Maybe to prove this person exists?

I don't care about her medical records,
how about proof of her US citizenship.

Of course, I'm sure your mentor would
never make something up to support her story.

If she can suddenly "claim" this person
exists, we have a right to ask for "proof".
Especially when she's a new "mystery" witness
supporting Oksy's story.

Amazing too, how this person on her death bed,
was able to elude three different sets of
Private Investigators for 4 months.

Or, are we now to accept every hook, line and
sinker Osky throws out there, without question.

I see that you do...
The rest of us, not so much.

Morning all!

So this is what now? Version six? Version seven?

There are some forms of cancer that progress extremely rapidly and may not even be diagnosed until Stage 3 or 4. The "babysitter" may only have recently been diagnosed at that level and undergoing current chemo. back in January, Lucia was just over two months old. Mostly she was just sleeping, eating and making messes - doesn't require a lot of running around.

So let's assume the babysitter's story is absolute truth. Mr. Mel was having a screaming rage at someone over the phone who wasn't Oksana. Babysitter, quite rightly too, hustles herself and Lucia off to another room and calls Miss Oksana to tell her about it.

Miss Oksana comes home and babysitter, who may already be feeling ill and faitgued due to the cancer, has enough of this crap and booked off home.

Which basically leaves us with yet another witness who can attest to Mr. Mel yelling, but never saw any physical violence. Neither did she, apparently, see Mr. Mel running around with a gun.

Like Jimmy the sound guy.

In other words, useless as a witness for the DV investigation.

Just using this part of your post, Vyktorya because you've hit the nail on the head with a great honking big hammer.

Things are being mishandled.

And there's that lovely yacht anchored in Malibu.

Damage control? How much good money would a person throw after bad? Any good businessman, or poker player, knows when to take the loss and walk away.

Just out of curiosity, what's the closest anchorage to Sherman Oaks?

@Dawn He is obsessed with power over people in general. And it's safe to say his stock has dropped considerably with women over the past decade. The DUI was pivotal.

He couldn't afford to lose this one bc she had absolutely NO deal breakers. NONE.

1) The year they met (2007) he's caught on camera twice in the tropics partying w young cuties. Even w/o alcohol it's essentially the same behavior that led to his DUI. SO does out of control spurts and likely infidelity bother you?"
"Not in the least."

2) He and Robyn were lying their asses off about their "marriage." so it was a dirty situation and if asked where mom lives, Alexander would need to support the lie with another lie. Deceit?
"No problem."

3) She and other witnesses saw Mel smack Tommy up-side the head at a hockey game (late '07, early '08). He sat away from Mel whimpering the entire game. Smacking children?
"Mel meet Alexander."

4) From the first many guests witnessed Mel slamming things in a rage and running out of the house. Is inexplicable anger and erratic behavior going to be a problem?
"Not to worry."

5) Racial epiphytes?
"I'll just tell the press you respect EVERYONE... but you will promote my career won't you, I mean I won't have to go out and play live gigs in front of the public like virtually every other legit artist does, right?"
"It's a deal baby."

An unholy alliance if ever there was one, yes?

Not just us. There's her first husband in Russia, several men in England (including Mr. Timothy Dalton), and a few men in America like Mr. David Foster and Mr. Mel Gibson who all believe it too.

Miss Oksana was never one to let the grass grow under her feet.

And just like that...


World Class Pianist Oksy G. is afraid for her life
this morning, after being threatened by what sources,
exclusive to ROL, are calling THE FISH HEAD BURGLER!

This criminal, who was recorded using an Australian
accent, broke into Mr. G.s home late last night and
left a FISH HEAD next to her, to terrorize her!

Ms. G. is afraid for her life, and feels abused over
the newest in a long history of alleged allegations
against her former lover, M. Gibson, originally from

[in really small print at the bottom]
Story Update: Restaurant sources confirm that Ms. G
ordered the fish head combo from NOBU last night
as takeout, just before closing.

They must've found that picture of Oksana in the archives somewhere. The whole shape of her face is different - different nose, different cheeks, eyebrows in a more natural location & skin not nearly as tightly pulled, especially around the jawline and eyes. Her hair also looks finer than in any other pics I've seen.

Wonder if anyone compares this pic to the damaged veneers pic if it's the same nose? That would prove her "evidence" pic is a fraud.
