Mel Gibson to Oksana: I Have Nothing to Say to You

11/2/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson didn't utter a word to Oksana Grigorieva during his deposition Monday ... and Oksana gave Mel the same silent treatment ... sources tell TMZ.

Mel was asked a wide range of questions during the marathon depo, with Oksana looking on and huddling with her lawyers, suggesting questions.

And here's a shocker ... Mel's deposition was videotaped! Although the tapes, we're told, will be watermarked to trace any leak, nothing in this case has stayed secret.

As for Mel's demeanor, we're told he never lost his cool but did become annoyed from time to time.

We're told Mel asserted his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination on issues related to the domestic violence investigation.

And sources say ... Oksana's lawyers were not able to play the now-infamous tapes she secretly recorded.

In a word -- we're told the deposition was "contentious."

969. The Bodyguard Group site yesterday had an item where Hertzog had left to finish writing the book, but one interesting item was listed. Hertzog claims Garbus is OG's chief lawyer in charge and that 5 months ago Garbus knew Hertzog was writing this book, the only way it seemed from that little item, that Hertzog and Garbus were in contact was so Garbus could avoid the news of the book coming out until OG's child custody case was over with lol!!

Well that failed miserably, lol.
And gee, there was no mention of Mr. Kris serving jail time or the fact that Attorney Garbus was his lawyer at the time.
Maybe Attorneys Horowitz and Garbus are waiting to see which of them will actually make the most money and then dump one of them.

Herzog and Kowal were used by Okanas's PR to trap Mel's lawyers
remember that Kowal and Niko first went to Mels'lawyer
(using same tactics as Oksa) who send them to police...

Herzog writing book? NO!
that book will be written by Oksana's PR to hurt Mel,
they are just using Herzog's name
but that book will come from Oksana herself

evil circle around Mel
2 greedy lawyers protecting criminals and extortionists

Mels 5th amendment may be just his decision to listen to his lawyer. Lawyers will advise you to never answer questions about yourself because it may open the door to a whole area of questioning that could compromise you in other ways. Lawyers routinely advise clients to take the fifth across the board even when they know the client is 100% innocent - because the other sides lawyer may have a strategy for manipulating the testimony or using it against you in some way you dont foresee - so you dont give them the opportunity.

Mel , you are the best actor, father, and husband in the world. We all know that idiot just wants your money and is trying to ruin your life. Stay strong and I am praying for you. You'll get custody and I hope you go back to Robin/ and raise Lucia as well as you and Robin raised your other children. That turd is lying and by her false tapes she proves herself a lunatic.

Mel is innocent. This woman and her sister just want his money. She is just exhorting him and has that precious baby in the middle. She sucks, is sneaky and wrong.

GO Mel YOU DESERVE THE BEST and that includes custody of your baby.
