Sheriff's Dept. Interviews Oksana's Mediation Lawyer

10/6/2010 8:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... L.A. County Sheriff's investigators have just interviewed the lawyer who mediated Oksana Grigorieva's case with Mel Gibson, in connection with the extortion investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... two investigators went to the law offices of Eric George, a well-known L.A. attorney.  As TMZ has reported, the Sheriff's investigators are looking into whether Oksana tried to extort $15 million from Mel Gibson, in return for the infamous audio tapes.  TMZ has already posted the signed agreement that Oksana later disavowed.

Our law enforcement sources say ... among the topics investigators covered:

-- How involved Oksana was in the mediation
-- How involved she was in the money discussions
-- Why she ultimately rejected the agreement she signed

In addition to meeting with George, investigators met with his law partner, Sonia Lee, who was also involved in the mediation.

Our law enforcement sources say the extortion file should go to the L.A. County District Attorney shortly.  The D.A. will make simultaneous decisions on whether to prosecute Mel for domestic violence and Oksana for extortion.

Oksana's prayer:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
A bag of Mel's money at my feet.
If I should die before I wake,
Keep suing Mel, for goodness sake!

Send my money to Satan,
He'll know what to do.
He'll share it with me,
'Cause I'm boinking him too!


Oksana's advice:

If the pursuit of riches
Is your evil desire,
Just spread 'em, bitches,
Let that rich dude sire!

Just make him a baby,
All cute and pristine.
Just make him a baby,
It's a money machine!

Harvey just likes to torment us. He always releases the most juicy tid-bits at 1:00 am Pacific time.

LOL! We can hope for the breaking dawn of the light of justice tomorrow!

i hope they lock this broad up so she can go away. i smelled a rat when all the audio was being released. not only that they were released but how they were released. to maximize the damage to mel. not to say that hes an angel, but come on. shes a common gold digger & not at all innocent in the matter. in my eyes shes just as bad as mel, if not worse. why doesn't this woman get a damn job instead of living off of these gossip magazines? what a nightmare.

The PR spin and BS is all targeted to people gullible enough to buy her CDs. That's what this is really all about. She needs to look like the "forgiving Christian victim" to drum up curiosity and sales.

Hi Kb.

don't know about going 'strong still'. Shyone told every oen to stop cussinf and that kinda took all the fun out of it :(

BUT, on the flip, the trolls seem to hate being totally ignored if we can all just stick to that and watch them implod on themselves. That's fun too :P

@ Sam

You are an optimist! (I wish it too) But I think all we will have for tonight and tomorrow is happy dreams.

On the other hand, perhaps a celebratory libation is in order. Wanna try those Black Russians again?

I think he has to be careful not to violate the atty/client privilege, but he should be able to give just enough information to expose more of her lies and set the stage for her extortion trial. If she keeps trashing the mediation and the job done by George/Lee, they can sue her for defamation.

Poor Mel    

The irony is after all that Oksana has said and done to literally destroy Mel and keep their kid away from him, she will shortly be hauled off to jail, Mel will get custody of Lucia and Oksana won't get a penny.

Can't wait to see his new movie with Jodie Foster. Hey Mel, take another chick to the opening this time, will ya?

Oinky keeps firing lawyers because they are not telling HER want she wants.

Surly the law must see that going thru 18/19 lawyers in a few months something is wrong.

She is a dumb arse liar and it's well over due she has to go down, all the liars differing storys Ship this white trash back to Russia

And like McCartney, Mel has kept a dignified silence throughout this smear campaign.
