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 will Curious my dear friend, it's just that unlike Oksy [and a dozen screennames up here that type like she talks] I have work to do. I only have time to skim the highlights and this is my final post. I'll miss the paychecks but I leave things in your good hands...

Don't worry, I'll be sure to attend the parade once Oksy gets her due consideration. [insert sound of jail door closing]

Buh bye....

Mel Gibson is a fine actor & Director who has given enjoyment to millions of people with his work. his personal life is his personal life, so why is everyone crucifying him (excuse the pun)

There's something rotten in the State of Hollywood

Now it's the bodyguard who threatened Violet. Why didn't she go straight to the police? Why isn't this on tape? What does Alred have against Mel? Must be something.

Bipolar is a complex illness. There are many different symptoms -- and several different types -- of bipolar disorder. The primary symptoms of the disorder are dramatic and unpredictable mood swings. The various types of bipolar disorder range from mild to severe.

Bipolar Symptoms
The primary symptoms of bipolar disorder are dramatic and unpredictable mood swings.

Mania Symptoms
Mania symptoms may include excessive happiness, excitement, irritability, restlessness, increased energy, less need for sleep, racing thoughts, high sex drive, and a tendency to make grand and unattainable plans.

Depression Symptoms
Depression symptoms may include sadness, anxiety, irritability, loss of energy, uncontrollable crying, change in appetite causing weight loss or gain, increased need for sleep, difficulty making decisions, and thoughts of death or suicide.

Bipolar Types
There are several types of bipolar disorder; all involve episodes of depression and mania to a degree. They include bipolar I, bipolar II, cyclothymic disorder, mixed bipolar, and rapid-cycling bipolar disorder.

Bipolar I
A person affected by bipolar I disorder has had at least one manic episode in his or her life. A manic episode is a period of abnormally elevated mood, accompanied by abnormal behavior that disrupts life.

Bipolar II
Bipolar II is similar to bipolar I disorder, with moods cycling between high and low over time. However, in bipolar II disorder, the "up" moods never reach full-on mania.

Rapid Cycling
In rapid cycling, a person with bipolar disorder experiences four or more episodes of mania or depression in one year. About 10% to 20% of people with bipolar disorder have rapid cycling.

Mixed Bipolar
In most forms of bipolar disorder, moods alternate between elevated and depressed over time. But with mixed bipolar disorder, a person experiences both mania and depression simultaneously or in rapid sequence.

Of course she has text messages. There is no more love in the world. It's all about "how can I become famous" and take people's money.

I agree John. I wish all the rich and famous would say, I don't care, tell everything you want. I am not giving you a dime. Then maybe these women would go back in their holes.

Tiger's women were sick, sick,sick. There is a difference here though. Mel was not in a marriage. He was dong Ox (maybe, in some things I got the impression she wasn't putting out as much). He was not married to Ox. If the man bedded 20 women, I wouldn't care. If he did text messaging and it was sexting....I wouldn't care.

That was the one thing with Tiger's one woman that was never proved (although I imagine he did her). The text messages were nothing more then an attempt to have "text sex" and even he said he failed at it or couldn't do those things. (peeing on her).

Please celebs, stop the cycle of these women coming after you for money! Say no I won't pay you. Let them tell all, shoot we are getting use to it.

Kelsey is going to be the next one we here in this situation, years up the road....but I'll bet on it.

More of the smear campaign.....
He's bipolar, he needs medication...blah blah blah....

There is no evidence of battery!! It doesn't matter if he hears the Eveready Bunny telling him to buy a lotto ticket....bipolar isn't ILLEGAL.....

Extortion, fabricating evidence to authorities, that's ILLEGAL.......

Posted at 8:14 AM on Aug 15, 2010 by Jacqueline13's called grandstanding. Attorneys do it all the time, especially when the smell of money is in the air. People with the means often settle just to get the nuisance suits off their backs. Believe it or not, these settlements occur even when the plaintiff is wrong or just plain disingenuous.

Tired of toxomom    

DCFS does not send emails saying they want to speak to a person. They just show up.
