Oksana's Lawyer: She Leaked Nothing

9/22/2010 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva went on the PR offensive today when one of her lawyers, Daniel Horowitz, went on "Today" and proclaimed his client didn't sell the tapes or leak letters and emails ... and says she's simply a victim of domestic violence.

Among the points Horowitz hit with Meredith Vieira:

- Oksana didn't sell the secret audio tapes of her phone conversations between her and Mel Gibson.

- Oksana didn't leak letters or emails -- but they know who did.

- The tapes would be worth at least a million dollars and Oksana is broke.

- She never asked for money in exchange for not releasing information.

He should say at the end of his little speeches "I am paid by Mel Gibson".

Now i see why she picked him. They both have weird noses. The fact that oksana stayed after she claimed she was in fear of her and the kids life to make these tapes, shows her ultimate goal was to use it as leverage against Mel in the hopes of getting a BIG payday from Mel.

Body language experts would agree, this lawyer was lying...and that old "freedom of speech" fart that came on last, he appeared to be reading from OG IMDb bio...I was waiting for him to bring up that bit about OG:

"But it was her personal life in Russia that caused most troubles to her and her parents, because by the age of 18 she became so attractive and desired by many, so that men of all ages could not resist from stalking her and some young men were even caught while braking into her bedroom window to get her. Seeking protection, she married a fellow student, who shared her desires to live in the West, but the marriage did not work and was dissolved soon."

all bull crap.

she made the recordings she is responsible for them but, wont accept the responsibility for their being released to the public.

the buck stops with her period! if anyone else had or took possession of them they did so by obtaining them from her!

she made them ....her responsibility ...end ..of ..story! no threats of consequences by her lawyer will change that fact!

A lawyer doesn't do anything but protect their client, no matter how guilty the person is. As far as being a victim, she may have started out as one, but the moment she tried to sqeeze money out of him through a lawyer, she became an extortionist. She could have filed a police report and given copies of all the tapes to police and then sued him. At least she would have been safe and her children would have been safe, but she went the money route and now no one feels bad for her. So she cries about how broke she is, which only reinforces that she's out to get money. Until she's living in government housing and collecting food stamps, I don't want to hear how broke she is. People in this country are having a hard time right now and not being able to afford a nanny when you don't even work is not being broke.

She should have kept George as her attorney. He is good looking. This guy pictured looks like Nixon. and is as trustworthy. Today just aired entire segement. She walked away from the table. Mel was reaching for his wallet, ready to make her happy. No it has never been about money, You Mr. attorney are the one that is lying.

O.K. So her Lawyer said:

- Oksana didn't sell the secret audio tapes of her phone conversations between her and Mel Gibson.
--------------------------------------
and factually I think he is right someone, like her sister did on her behalf I believe. So no he isn't lying when he said that.

- Oksana didn't leak letters or emails -- but they know who did.

See comment above, and wanna bet they say Sascha did.

-------------------------------------------------
- The tapes would be worth at least a million dollars and Oksana is broke.

Yeah, wanna bet someone else is sitting on that Mil for her...
-------------------------------------------------
- She never asked for money in exchange for not releasing information.

Once again he is right, someone else asked for her

--------------------------------------------------
I don't buy any of the stuff he stated in regards to these four highlights...She had the tapes, how did them magically appear on ROL??? Same with her teeth pic and her side of head shot and the shot of Lucia...gee all amazing coincedence's. Yeah and only ROL got that, and only ROL won't publish negative stories about her...Hmmmmm why would that be

Why is it that Spertus and Fulginiti never felt the urgent need to go on the offensive?

Sounds to me like someone in Hollywood wants to take Mel down via Oksana.

BULL FU**ING S**T!
-
She was the only one in posession of the tapes/letters. The ONLY person who could have leaked them was Oksana herself or one of her lawyers.

FRY the bitch!

Oh yeah...and these high-powered attorneys are so concerned about domestic violence against Oksana? Right!

Next they'll be stating that they are all doing this pro bono because they feel so strongly about domestic violence against Oksana. Uh, huh...keeping taking...

If they felt so strongly about domestic violence then why don't they represent some no-name person that lives somewhere in low housing that ended up in the hospital because she was severly beaten. YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT THESE HOT SHOT ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE! HELL NO! PEOPLE LIKE THAT HAVE TO RELY ON A PUBLIC DEFENDER THAT IS UNDER A MOUNTAIN OF OTHER CASES!
