Oksana's Lawyer Pulls Plug on Oprah Interview

10/5/2010 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva will not be doing Oprah Winfrey's show, but contrary to a CNN report, it's not because the judge gagged her ... it's because one of her lawyers said, "No way."

There's a report out that Judge Scott Gordon ordered Oksana to pull the plug on "Oprah" ... we know that's simply not the case. 

Judge Gordon did not order Oksana to stay clear of "Oprah."  Period.

Sources connected with the case tell us there was a conflict between Oksana's lawyers -- Anne Kiley, her family lawyer, was strongly against Oksana doing the interview.  Sources tell us ... Daniel Horowitz, who arranged the interview, wanted her to do it -- as did Oksana -- but ultimately Horowitz deferred to Kiley.

@V - Thank you for stating the domestic violence issue much better than I can on the last thread - Frankly she has done so much that is illegal already I am truly surprised she is still mobile -

Who got CNN to change the story?...Something is very strange here....it begs teh question that the same person gave two different interviews and got caught....you just dont change an article because another site TMZ does....Whoremuncher got caught lying to CNN and Kiley told him to get it changed ASAP....IMO

Folks, Mel already agreed to give Oksana $15 million earlier this year. Why? Because he KNOWS that the recordings of him freaking out and acting like a lunatic are REAL. He KNOWS he's "the bad guy" and he totally screwed up by going on his abusive rages toward Oksana and (probably) knocking her down or hitting her ... which caused the damage to her teeth.

Mel knows he's a foul mouthed, sadistic, abusive slimeball who enjoys terrorizing people if he thinks he can get away with it. I guess he totally underestimated Oksana. Ooops. He sure underestimated her ability to retaliate and fight it out with him.

How DARE Oksana defy the will of the almighty Mel Gibson ... the rich and famous Hollywood actor! Everyone is supposed to cower in fear of "the great man"! Oksana is a mere middle class immigrant peasant woman from Russia! Doesn't Oksana know that the rich guy always gets what he wants! It's a special privilege for wealthy white men like Mel to get away with committing a few crimes. It's been that way since the days of medieval England 700 years ago like in Mel's movie "Braveheart"!

@Mishie Too late. No mention of a judge in that article.

I got a screen shot of the earlier version :-)

wow...is there a CONSPIRACY??

sure seems like it...WTH is going on? idk, the handling of this case is a real eye opener of what is going on in that town...who is running that town...and this appears at least to me so blatant...how can anything be done if the political figures also seem so chummy with select few who hate Mel...

does the foreign papers have to break this story rather than someone right here in the states? seems that is what has to happen! and US becomes an embarrassment to the legal system of the world!

They are laundering Mel Gibsons money. Legal blackmail, it's the new crime. There should be a law against it.

This is getting scary...if a person cant trust the judicial system what can you trust....I would be bringing charges against the judge for extortion, if I were Mel , cause thats what it amounts too...the judge must be getting a cut.

Morning Team Mel,

Maybe Oksana's previous lawyers had contacted Oksana current lawyers with her telephone interview when she tried to exonerate herself about the millions during mediation? She contradicted herself big time and tried to blamed her two former lawyers.
I bet that's the reason of the plugging the show.

What's wrong with this Mike character? Me thinks he doth protest too much.

I suspect he is closet wife beater with some sort of personality disorder.

Mike,

I know I'm wasting my breath here, but Mel did not agree to give Oxy $15 million just because of the recordings. The majority of that $15 Million was for Lucia, his daughter.

Whatever your personal opinion of Mel, at least get your facts straight.

You just keep on defending Oksana. You can call Mel all the names you want to. He's big enough to take a few insults.

And just as an aside, your posts would probably be better received, or even read, if you weren't frothing at the mouth.

Mike Are you saying he needed to pay more for the tapes so Oxtanic wouldn't release them? That's called extortion

Mike who was the witness to Mel Gibson knocking Oksana down?
where is her bruises and bloody mouth?
Mike if she was punched on the mouth with Mel big hand, her lips would have had sustained some injury and her was bruised and also there is sign of trauma. Her real teeth would had been dislodge with that force.

she'd shown a removable cracked veneer, she could have cracked it herself and put it back as evidence.

As domestic survivor her testimony are shot, most fabricated even her " I was so scared for my life that night, I thought I was going to last that night"

Yet she was sitting down chatting to her sister on skype and the same time she was answeing all Mel calls.
