Mel to Oksana -- 'I Could Commit a Crime'

9/22/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson wrote a frantic, rambling letter to Oksana Grigorieva a year before their infamous, January blowout -- in which he describes feeling so out of control that he "could drink or commit a crime."

Mel Gibson Letter

TMZ has obtained a copy of the letter -- handwritten by Mel -- and in it he says, "I'm so ragged I could drink or commit a crime. The anger seems to be out of my control -- I need to do something about it something lasting -- not just a band aid."

In the undated letter -- which sources connected to the case tell TMZ was written in December 2008 -- he says, "I don't know why I'm so whacky and depressed but I need to get well and re-enter life.  Please don't be upset I've gone -- I'm just not myself and feel bad when I am so f**ked up and sick around you."

Mel goes on:  "I don't want to inflict this unhealthy version of myself on you."

Mel theorizes, "Maybe it's some kind of male menopause -- or Brian's s**t."  We're told Brian is Mel's holistic doctor.

In the letter, Mel repeatedly tells Oksana, "I love you" and says, "...this isn't who I was meant to be -- I know it!  I'm scared I can't get back."

Hmmm, I wonder if this is due to his seperation from Robyn and the turmoil he'd have been dealing with after seperating from 28 years of marriage. That's a long time to be with someone and then to have it end would be hard. I could see it being difficult for them both.

O-o-o-o!!!! First were tapes, then emails, voice mess and now - letters!!! Oksa! Don't try to assure public, that Mel is mad! Otherwise You defame yourself! You slept with sick (!!!) guy for 3 years, used his money on your mean music career and at the end gave birth to a baby from him! Where's logic??

Mel is violent and dangerous. She may be a gold digger but she hasn't knocked anyone's teeth I mean veneers out of their mouth or hatefully denigrated every race under the sun and women, too.

Can't sleep, so I came here and what do I see? Wow, how can someone be so cruel as to take something written to them in private, which obviously was meant to be kept private and expose it to the whole world? What kind of person does this? Does she hate Mel so much that she will allow every single aspect of their short affair to made public, even the most private of details? No wonder he couldn't trust her, no wonder he went crazy. She knew he was in spiritual/emotional and mental pain, going through a difficult time in his life, and she used it to her advantage. No doubt she made him believe she was his friend, that she understood him and was someone he could trust, he fell in love, and then the real person, the person who exposes intimate letters to the public, this is the person he came to know. Imagine the feeling of betrayal he felt and feels. She knew of his problems, and I now think she used them to get to where she is now, trying to get big money out of him. Sick. Sick, Sick.

a letter by a person suffering from depression.


this ridiculous outrageous leaking is appalling.

sometimes i feel like i could commit a crime to.

i like the fact he is a letter writer. its therapeutic.

yes the man used to drink. he could be depressed an angry/conflicted because he let down his family. i am certain he had some guilt about that.

this letter means nothing.

Ok$ana and her new PR team!

Does she and her PR team think this

She is now even MORE disgusting.
A disgusting, manipulating,gold digger and a whore.
Totally despicable.

I refuse to click on the link to read the whole letter.

This is like peeping through keyholes and panty-sniffing.

What does this serve her Grigorieva's professed desire to protect her daughter. Nothing. Grigorieva is an exceptionally unethical, destructive person, and it's unfortunate that the media gives her a forum for her poisonous actions.

Is this part of her PR campaign? Each day she is going to release something private? I am wondering about the authenticity as well.

"I'm just not myself and feel bad when I am so f**ked up and sick around you"
This rings alarm bells in me. Is it Oksana's personality bringing this on or is she slippinmg something into his food or drink? He is effed up and sick AROUND HER.

Another thing - just throwing it out there
Was he on some medication - like antidepressants? I know somoene who was prescribed antidepresants but when he took them late and when he stopped altogether, he'd go into episodes of rage. I looked it up online and there are patients who experience withdrawal sypmtoms including extreme rage that the patients haven't experienced or can't explain. Drug companies call it discontinuation syndrome because they don't like to say it's withdrawal. Some have to be remedicated for the new symptoms. It's awful. It's better to find other cure before taking them.
That's why when someone goes into out of character rage or rant, I'd wonder if the person has been depressed and are suffering from anti-depressants withdrawal.)

Well if this is part of her P.R. move, I don't think it's having the effect they are looking for. Another backfire to add to the list of gaffes so far IMO.
