Oksana's Ex-Lawyer to Chat with Sheriff Investigators

9/16/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Oksana Grigorieva's former attorney is set to talk with Sheriff's investigators about Mel Gibson's extortion claims against her.

According to our sources, an L.A. County Sheriff's investigator contacted Eric George on Wednesday. George repped Grigorieva during the mediation where she agreed to (and later reneged on) a $15 million package from Gibson.

As we first reported, Oksana sent Mel text messages during that mediation which some think could be construed as extortion. In one of the texts Oksana accuses Mel of not keeping up his part of the deal to support her. As her attorney at the time George was privy to the texts as well as other information.

Our law enforcement sources say George said he would be "delighted" to meet with investigators.

It's another indication that the Sheriff's department is taking the extortion investigation seriously. As we told you earlier .. investigators have already interviewed Mel Gibson twice. They were considering interviewing him a third time but we're told they're satisfied now with what they have from him.

Don't forget she came out and told the media, Mel abused her on the phone and she has proof, Alldred cruised her way remember?

Maybe that was the time Oksana tried bribing her if she get something like 200mil from Mel, Now she can see there is no payday from Oksana, she switched sides?

Yes, she switched sides because it's obvious Oksana isn't going to be getting much of anything except jail time and Violet knew Ox's case was unraveling and she was part of the scam so she was next. Now she is coming clean to investigators to cover her own azz.

@Koala, Tell Firefly

If Kowal does indicate that she made up the stories about Mel, her credibility can be challenged. And the recordings she allegedly has will have to be authenticated.

Oksana must be sweating it out today... her former attorney is talking to Sheriff investigators. Her former partner in crime Violent K. is turning on her.

It's a good day for Mel.

Don't read too much in to this. Of course he's going to say he's "delighted" to meet with investigators. He knows it's a matter of professional courtesy. Most of what he knows is privileged and can't be divulged. All he can talk about is what was said around the table. I doubt Oxy (despite being not the sharpest tool in the shed) would have said anything incriminating with multiple witnesses around.

This will turn out to be much ado about nothing.

Mornin' Shell,

This will make a good movie after it is all said and done. So many twists and turns my head is spinning. What's next? Oxy's mom runs off with Lucia to Russia?
