Mel Gibson's Deposition and the Phantom Fist

11/3/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's lawyer accused Mel Gibson during his deposition Monday of clenching his fist ... but the judge ruled there was absolutely no proof it happened.

Here's what we know ... The deposition got so contentious and loud among the lawyers ... people in the office building heard the noise.  Sources say at one point, Oksana's lawyer, Daniel Horowitz, accused Mel of winking at him -- a comment the judge promptly struck from the record.

Horowitz then said on the record ... he believed Mel clenched his left fist.  Again, the judge struck the comment from the record.

What's interesting ... the proof is in the video, which was rolling during the whole depo.  But as far as we know, there's no evidence Mel clenched it.

So what if he clenched his fist? That's called controlling the temper.

Right(NOT). Oksana held her cool because it wasn't HER deposition with MEL in her face. It was MEL with OKSANA feeding questions to her attorney which is almost a sgood as having her in his face. MEL at least had the decency to let his attorneys do their job during HER deposition. She's the one with the control issues.

If the judge struck these things from the record, they are off the record. End of story.

Lawyers are just good businessmen NOT advocates. Baby Lucia seems to be secondary for Oksana and just being used as a weapon against Mel. I think if she let the father have visitation with the child on her birthday it would have thrown a better light on her. Instead the New Queen of Mean reins. Hope this has a ok ending but the child as always will suffer the most.

This sounds absolutely crazy. So what if you clench your fist? So what if you react as long as you do not overreact? Mel is a human being - and an emotional man - he is getting accused and attacked and they expect him to be totally unaffected?

Obviously the goal was to make him blow up. Mel is far too smart to be lured into that kind of trap.

You know they were trying their best to egg him on. I'm sure Horowitz is a piece of work when it comes to a deposition. At least Mel isn't faking a headache when the deposition gets contentious. Actually, it sounds like it was the attorneys who were yelling at each other, not Mel.

Oh, and Oksana has to be on her best behavior or else she's out of the room. She may have a right to be there but cannot be disruptive. So I'm sure she's been lectured on this.
