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.

As the story unfolds and we see what kind of a person Oksana is, it makes Mel's angry voice on the tapes seem rather mild.

This woman's blood runs cold.

ok wait.... why is this bitch just coming out *NOW* to tell her story... could it be because she realizes she can try and cash in on this too? oh and don't get me started on the "alleged misstresses"... any time a male celebrity gets in trouble for something, 30 women come forward crying mistress. hmmm 30 women for every male celebrity... Is there really that many women left?

RIP "witness babysitter" -- reported to have died this weekend.

Name remains shrouded in secrecy.

Truth or Hoax?

Whoaxana had a use even for the terminally incapacitated -- how do we know this dying "witness" even made any kind of statement to anyone? Has anyone deposed the nursing staff attending her yet?

The babysitter died this past weekend. So she did have stage 4 cancer. I think Oksana was trying to help her out while mel refer to her as a wetback. Nice of you mel.

Let me get this straight, over the weekend TMZ reports babysitter FREAKED out before Fight.

Today we find the babysitter died over the weekend, that is when this story came out, over the weekend.

The babysitter never talked to cops, never left any statement with anybody in writing.

We find out about this babysitter right as she is either dead or during last 24 hours of her death.

Come on, now oxsa is saying how THIS was the STRONGEST witness , well, why wait until she is dead, to tell the police, I'm sure they would have wanted to interview her 5 months ago, or 4 months ago, or 1 week before she died. No, wait until she is DEAD. Now we just have to take oxsa's word on what the babysitter saw.
Today oxsa tells us the babysitter was so scared of MEL, she ran into the bedroom with baby and hid.

OXSA is so EVIL. Now she can say anything and tell us it came from babysitter. Any way for oxsa to keep the story alive, RADAR will print it.

@ everyone...I just heard a real funny! A friend of mine's elderly father saw a newsclip about Mel and Ox that caught his attention. He said to my friend,"WHAT HAPPENED TO MEL GIBSON??? That weird Mexican gal he hooked up with is causing him all kinds of problems!"

I think that's a terrible insult to Mexicans but he was sincere and thought she looked Hispanic LOL

To the person who said, "Stage 4 cancer? Working?" I've got news for you, there are plenty of people battling cancer and other terrible diseases who have no insurance and are working even though they're falling on their faces from exhaustion and the stress of battling a fatal disease. They have no choice. Millions of people are struggling and even if dying, would give anything for a job. A little more empathy and tolerance in this world would be appreciated. As for Mel - he's off the wall! His temper tantrums, his violent behavior - no excuse for that. Can only assume he's mentally ill and has been for some time.

No doubt Ms Oksana was after the married Mel's money when she bedded him. Certainly, she made him irate enough to engage in tirades.
However, Mr. Gibson was not forced to engage in extra marital relations with anyone let alone someone with such a disreputable character. His wife was long suffering and the mother of seven of his children. Supported him when he was a struggling nobody. Put up with his alcoholic binging... Despite her loyalty, he betrayed her and now he has been betrayed...surprise...he is getting what he deserves... know he is Catholic but it looks like he is getting a good old dose of Karma!

As far as I have been able to research, neither this babysitter's name nor nationality (regardless of immigration status) has been reported to the public. Does anyone know if this poor woman is factually the nanny Mel allegedly referred to in Oksana's recordings? Or is everyone simply assuming she is because she has reportedly made a negative accusation about Mel? It seems a bit overly convenient to me, especially now that she has passed and cannot be questioned further, under oath.

Not sure why this was posted because listening to the tapes makes it easy to believe Mel Gibson flips out.
