Oksana Grigorieva

Defies Judge with Larry King

11/14/2010 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has defied the judge in her custody war with Mel Gibson by taping an interview with Larry King Saturday night, TMZ has learned ... and it's Oksana's opening salvo in "speaking out on behalf of battered women."

1114_king_ox_tmz_exd_6
Oksana did the interview (which was supposed to only last a half-hour but ended up an hour) along with one of her lawyers, Marty Garbus -- this despite Judge Scott Gordon telling Oksana that if she did media, she might pay when it comes to awarding custody ... this according to Oksana's team.

Sources connected with Oksana tell TMZ she did the interview because "she feels she's been silent too long and feels bad for other battered women if she stays silent." Sources tell TMZ Oksana is now working with a group called Peace Over Violence -- an L.A.-based battered women's group -- and she's planning a number of news conferences in the near future.

We're told Larry King played portions of a number of the tapes Oksana secretly recorded, in which Mel goes crazy. King asks for her reaction to the various tapes.

And we're told Oksana repeats over and over that she believes Mel is a great father, but he needs therapy to deal with his issues so he can safely be around Lucia.

Oksana is also working with a lobbying group in Sacramento -- California Partnership to End Domestic Violence -- on battered women legislation.

I can just see the headlines now if the judge penalizes her for "exercising her right to freedom of speech".

"Judge punishes woman for speaking out against DV"

Men don't stand a chance in California.

Bitch    

How can Oksana be a spokeswoman for Domestic Violence when Mel has yet to be charged, or convicted of any crime? Is this not grandstanding for attention and completely unethical on her part?

Oksana contacted the group, that's all you need to know. Ladies, you are being used again, by the time this sociopath gets done with you,...you all will have stepped back several steps. Oksana is a sociopath, your group is a TOOL to her, like her child is a TOOL to gain money...your group is a TOOL to cover her ass and escape punishment.

Someone needs to introduce Oksana to Robert Blake. He knows how to handle women like this. :-)

Larry King married 8 times, and is cheating on his current wife with her own sister, so much for his credibility for questioning other people's personal life - his constant low rating would only get even lower with this lying board.

As someone posted

We should all be afraid at the blatant manipulation and control by the media in the manner in which information is dissimated and fed to the public at large.

This case is before the courts, and its turning into a 3 ring circus by the media spin and influence. People Magazine and now on Larry King Live.

Who is more powerful in the USA. The justice system or the media?
Is the United States turning into a Banana Republic?

She makes me physically sick. This woman is such a player. I am pis*ed people are buying all this sh*t she is spinning, all the changing stories, the new additions. And all this parading around in *****y make up so she would seem tired and worn out, its sickening the level of BS she is able to spin. For f*cks sake I hope once, ONCE in the freakin history of the idiotic american justice system the woman does not get a sh*tload of money for not doing ANYTHING and instead has to pay for all the cost MEL has had due to her BS. Just ONCE, please.

Tim Dalton goes to Lucia's 1st Bday party, doubt she knows who he is, but his own 13 year old son has to be embarrassed by Mommy's actions, Mommy begging publicly she has no money for a BDay gift for Sasha..LA Lakers, help a poor girl out. Where was Tim Dalton then?
Where was Tim Dalton when Ox was leaking tapes to ROL and the discussion was her giving BJs. Don't tell us a then 12 year old boy didn't get teased at school about that.

That is why you should continue to boycott any media that pulls stunts like this and spread the word any way you can why it is prudent to not let the media get away with manipulating our JUSTICE SYSTEM. or railroading citizens, because next, it could be YOU.

I would think, hope, that Mel can have an order issued that she cannot mention his name in any form. There is no evidence that he abused her.

I think this is her way to play with the DA, she wants Mel to be charged with DV, and if they charge her with anything she will now like a victim of the DA themselves.

I loathe this woman beyond words.

Yesterday I was questioning myself and why she is provoking such
a strong reaction in me. So I tried really hard to disengage myself
emotionally and try to understand things from Oksana's point of view.
I posted some questions to Anon and TMZgossip to help me understand
the Oksana frame of mind.

My brain almost exploded. And now this!

How does Mel think he's going to survive the next 18 years dealing with
Oksana ? Her full time job is to be in the public eye 24/7 and speak
about Mel. She's addicted to fame. Without Mel no one has any interest
in her. Whatever money she gets, whatever the ruling, she will keep herself
in the press. No gag order will stop her. No $$$ will stop her. No threat
will stop her.

She surrounds herself with powerful and misguided people that feed her
narcissism and delusions of grandeur. I've never heard her tell the truth.

I'M NOW ACTUALLY PISSED OFF AT MEL FOR UNLEASHING THIS MONSTER,
OKSANA GRIGORIEVA UNTO THE PUBLIC. Damn you Mel, you created Frakenstein.
Damn the American court system for being *****-whipped by a lunatic Oksy.

What is next? Becoming a spokeswoman for Domestic Violence Awareness
using herself as a constant example? She'll need better botox photos.

Anyone else as angry as me? dumb question.

I'd agreed with you but now there's a baby involved. It is clear that once that occurred, he opened Pandora's b Unfortunately, ox. too believe that this is not the end.

Let's say she does get found guilty of extortion. Techically, she should be deported, without her child as Lucia is an American and has a father here. Just think about the intrnational outcry that would bring.

One of my top bothersome things is that Oksana has been let off the hook so far for illegally taping Mel. Anyone with ears also know they are tampered with and incomplete. On those grounds alone, they should be inadmissible in any proceeding. She should be facing some serious consequences but because they show Mel in such a bad light, it appears she is going to get away with it.

If the courts don't deal with her harshly on this issue, it sends the message that this behavior is acceptable and that it is OK to tape a person in CA, without their knowledge, and play it over our airwaves aginst a court order in order to publically humiliate them.

People, make no mistake: THIS IS A BOLD SHOT ACROSS THE BOW OF THE DA.

It's not about Mel now. She's trying to stay out of prison. She's taking her tactics she used on Mel and now she's going public with some groups (using again someone else for her own purposes and she's going to destroy their credibility and the good work they do in the process. How many people will cut contributions to those groups now that she's going to be their spokesperson.)

Her tactic is to become a poster child for battered women so that if the DA goes after her, they will look like they are persecuting a poor victim of violence. It's a PR campaign. A bold audacious one that anyone with integrity would be too ashamed to conduct.

Nothing is ever her fault. And all her lies and the doctor's affidavit to the contrary... she's going to keep repeating the same lies over and over as if it will make them true.

She's having a face-down with the DA here. She's trying to get America on her side. Larry King is another idiot that should know better. If he allows her to use him, then he's more senile than I thought he was.

I feel like throwing up in my mouth.
