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.

I think #24 may be Herzog.

Yes, I agree. At the very least, it is a cry for help. capital letters and a doctor's signature give it that creepy Kenyan email fraud feel.

Tell, Who's That, et Michel MTT,

You're all correct, I'm sure. It WOULD be weird to let an employee be all over you like that if you weren't on intimate terms.

My wee brain is going all soft and spongy - overdosing on OG's & DH's antics. I think that's what's doing it.

It makes me very sad to think, no, to KNOW, that she's never going to let up in her harassment of MG. The lying and scheming does not poison her, or fill her with self-loathing like it would us. I believe if any of us tried it, we couldn't keep it up for long. But OG? Even if she won a large judgment, it wouldn't be enough. She'd start a new campaign. She's utterly fiendish.

And DH is no better. From what I know from family members who are solicitors (and one barrister), and from his published wins on his website, he's not THAT successful. Any sort of a win in this case would be THE BIG ONE for him. And I believe also that he and OG are now special friends.

Sheesh! I'm getting that contaminated feeling again. Ick.

"By stringing him along and making him feel important, we hoped that he would just fade away rather than explode and hurt somebody."

So has Horowitz knocked off somebody and framed someone, or plan to knock off someone and frame Herzog?

How is this placting Kris? Kris asks "Marty" a specific question on revealing the truth to TMZ, "Marty" responds yes. That infers to Kris that he should come forward to TMZ with the information that he and Ox were intimate. If they were placting Kris, they would have advised him that it'a not prudent at this time but when the time is right we will come forward. What I see is 2 attorneys throwing Kris under the bus to make him look like a placted lying fool, you were set up Kris by both of them.

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.

Great story TMZ. It should be a great walk of shame into the courthouse today for Oksana and Horowitz. I don't see how see can appear in public after all the things she has done and said to damage Mel Gibson.

The TRO was issued days after the people interview if I'm not mistaken.

THAT'S NOT THE SAME NIGHTGOWN ! I specifically remember the one she wore
while playing the piano covered her knees as she was sitting. I'm positive.

Can someone find the link where she is at the piano, and you will see it's not
the same nightgown. (I'm having trouble finding the link myself)

canook    

it is just pure provocation from Oksana PR & Horowitz
using TMZ as propaganda
next thing would be that
it was Herzog who sold those tapes to Radar on Line
and Oksana would walk free to hurt Mel more...

how could Garbus protect Herzog and
be captain of civil lawsuits for Oksana?

b/c today is a court so another provocation to Mel right?

dear God please protect Mel Gibson and his family,
give Mel strength and wisdom
