Emails Say Oksana Was Intimate with Bodyguard

11/10/2010 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Team Oksana Grigorieva lied to TMZ when they denied she had an intimate relationship with her former bodyguard ... at least according to several emails between the bodyguard and Oksana's lawyer.  But Oksana's lawyers say there's more to the story.

Oksana bodyguard:
TMZ broke the story .... Kristian Herzog -- who has served time in jail for impersonating a cop -- claimed to have been in an intimate relationship with Oksana that began in May. Oksana's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, told TMZ last month -- with Oksana looking on -- Herzog's claim was "ridiculous".

But TMZ has obtained an email Herzog sent to Martin Garbus, another one of Oksana's lawyers, on November 6. The email reads: "Martin: Do you agree that Team Oksana at some point, needs to admit Oksana and Dan LIED to TMZ and you need to tell TMZ the truth that in fact Oksana and I were intimate?"

The next morning, Garbus responded with one word: "Yes."

Dan Horowitz explains the emails this way: "Marty's job was to placate Kris, because once he got cut out of Oksana's world completely, we assessed him to be a clear and present danger to her life. By stringing him along and making him feel important, we hoped that he would just fade away rather than explode and hurt somebody."

TMZ has also obtained photos (above) showing Oksana in a nightgown, sitting on a bed with Herzog at her home. But Horowitz tells us the pictures were taken during a PEOPLE magazine photo shoot and were in no way intimate.

The judge in the custody case issued a restraining order against Herzog last month, concluding he was a danger to Lucia and prohibiting him from going near her.

Yeah, right. And, his pecker just accidently slipped in her when she tripped and fell underneath him.

Why on earth did she consent to these photos being taken??!
She looks so uncomfortable and stiff. Yet, she goes along with it. Surely she wasnt´forced to dress in a nightgown, sitting on a bed with her bodyguard. She must have a plan. Again. :)

Horrowitz- "assessed him to be a clear and present danger to her life. By stringing him along and making him feel important, we hoped that he would just fade away rather than explode and hurt somebody."

Last month he was fine to hang around the baby... and all of the sudden he is a clear and present danger to Oksana's life? Please explain that one.

As for looking uncomfortable, that is Oksana's natural state. Just because she regularly does illegal and disgusting things for money does not mean she likes photos with bald fat guys. 'He make me take photo vith heem... he say he keeel me. Help, safe meee! My nightie get stained from man shaft.'

She doesnt look uncomfortable.. She is posing and pouting trying to reclaim the 80s pout! Again one must ask. Who the hell poses in their nighty for a picture with just a friend who happens to be of the opposite sex. Does he have to follow her into her bedroom when she dresses as part of his duties? And where is her daughter when this is going on, remember she said he NEVER went near the baby? So am i right to guess while she is frollicking in her nightie with her bodyguard, the nanny that Mel pays for was performing her duties...

Just when you think she can't possibly make a bigger fool of herself.

The nighty had to be her idea. Just how on God's green earth could a People magazine guy have come up with the idea that she play the piano in her nighty?

It is beyond making a fool of herself. There has to be another catagory somewhere to put this is. And her lawyer? He needs to be looking over his shoulder for someone comming with a butterfly net!

They could make a comedy of this one, somewhere along the lines of "The Gang that couldn't shoot straight" with DeNiro.

God, if only this was a real trial...

I'm looking forward to January or February when the DA will finally make this Russian Stage Show go away, by not charging either party.

Of course, Mel will be stuck with providing this con artist $20k a month and all expenses paid for the next 18 years, and Horo will never have to work again, but at least it will all be over.

Can someone explain to me what is the deal with the nightgown? I don't understand why anybody would wear that during an interview or when there is people at your house.

Does anyone now have any doubts as to why the friends fixed him up with hookers? Could it be they thought it would be a vast improvement?

IF EITHER OF THESE PHOTOS WERE (really) from the PEOPLE shoot ... their shots are COPY RIGHTED. AND DOES ANYONE THINK SHE;D POSED IN A NATIONAL MAGAZINE in a cheap white NIGHTGOWN?

SHE WANTED TO LOOK HER "BEST" ... AND THAT NIGHTIE SHOT WASN'T it. And posing in front of a bed with her *next contest with a known felon IN HER BEDROOM is no way to impress the judge.

She is nothing but TRASH -- and so it ANYTHING comes out of HER (trash). And Whore-A-rotz is about as BAD as lawyer ... as he is SPINNING FICTON.

I don't know who is the bigger idiot. The Ho or Horowitz. What kind of alleged victim of domestic violence does an interview for People magazine in which she plays piano in a nightgown to begin with. Then goes on to do a photo shoot for People in her nightgown. Then her stupid lawyer tells everyone the picture of her in her nightgown and bodyguard in his clothes is a buddy buddy shot. lol. Herzog probably would haven't minded been shot in his tighty whities but hey People wants to sell their magazine. People barfing at the checkout is not good. By the way didn't Horowitz make a big deal about Herzog not being near the baby? Didn't the Ho flap her blowfish lips yipping about what a wonderful mother she was she sleeps with her daughter. Hmm bodyguard looks pretty comftorable in the bedroom guess the baby was indeed around the bodyguard. Everytime they tell a lie they expose another lie they have told before.

As for realizing Herzog was a threat yeah that would be Mel's attorneys that did that. They got the restraining order to keep him away from the baby, the hell with the Ho. Now when was it Garbus and Horowitz decided Herzog was a threat. Would that be before or after Herzog as her close confidante and legal adviser maybe recommended his own lawyer Garbus to her, who in turn invited his bud Horowitz to join the extortion team? After all Garbus who had Herzog as a client knew from day 1 whether he was a clear and present danger didn't he. No they got rid of Herzog, one less participant to share the dreamed about pay dirt with.
