Mel's Alleged Mistress:

I Have Text Messages

8/15/2010 10:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who claims to have been Mel Gibson's mistress at the time of the now-famous January 6 blowout says she was badgered by Mel's bodyguard to keep her mouth shut ... this according to sources who have been in touch with the woman.

Sources say Violet Kowal claims she was communicating with Mel on January 6 about his blowup with Oksana Grigorieva

In the days following -- January 7, 8 and 9 --  Violet Kowal claims she was contacted by one of Mel's bodyguards.  We're told Kowal says the bodyguard sent text messages, warning her that she couldn't talk about the incident and that she should "disappear" for a price.

And sources say Kowal -- who is now repped by Gloria Allred -- has phone records and text messages.

Sources also say ... Kowal claims to have an email she received recently from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services, the Sensitive Case Unit, informing her they wanted to speak with her.  So far, we're told, Kowal has not met with anyone from DCFS.

I hope this isn't a repeat of Tiger Woods where they just keep crawling out of the woodwork hoping for their 15 minutes of fame. That was annoying!!

this comment was so right on, i'm just going to copy it:
"This is so stupid, it's almost hysterical!

Read this folks::

There is no way L.A. County Departmnet of Children and Family Services would send an email!!!! They might call her or they might write her a letter. But send her an email???? If anyone has ever had any kind of legal dealings with any government agency where anything legal is at issue then all communication is done either by phone or written (as in hard copy); not email!"

^^ agree!!!

This is so true, and as for people saying his career should be over..if every man/woman lost their job due to problems in their marriage etc. 3/4's of the world would be out of a job. His private life has nothing to do with his career, people need to learn to separate the two.

All this speculation of who did what and who said this and that ....are these people in the room with him...are they privy to his personal thoughts and space ........l think not...........just pure folly of over indulgent imaginations like l said his personal life is what it is personal........ so personal means PRIVATE

On the E special she said she had nothing, now all the sudden she has text messages? Fake. This is from the same woman who claimed Mel was nice to her till she learned she could get dough claiming he was abusive. Violet Kowal's story changes more than New England weather...

Team Mel

Let's make this another Fantasia> Cook case. Perhaps oks itch can sue the mistress. As we saw with Mr. Cook nobody blames the man.

Now we can see if the mistress is still hot to give out information. Good way to get money itch.

Mel is getting such bad backlash from this woman, she's done nothing but throw him under the bus at every turn. He will always be apart of his childs life and she's doing everything possible to tear him apart. I like Mel and don't beleive everything I read, she's s*** who's out to distroy this man.
