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.

Whether or not the bitch from Hell has any mental health isues is not important now. She has learned what the American hot buttons are. Remember, she is from another country, one that was once behind the Iron Curtain. She had no touch with western hot buttons. But she learned: babies and their fathers (needs to pay big time for child support) and now abuse. That is a new one on the western agenda. And she is pushing that button for all it is worth. The last button would be child abuse.............I do not want to give her any ideas. She';ll push whatever is currently en vogue. We have to stop her. She has learned all too well.

True survivors of DV should contact these agencies as well as the Larry King Show to voice their dismay over this unadulterated PR attempt of OG's. This is outrageous!

@kpacota #12 <-A must read

I"m on board with your theory that she is attempting to play an offensive move by positioning herself as a VICTIM of "battered woman syndrome" despite the fact that she doesn't meet the criteria, forcing the court (that won't take a lot of are twisting) to CONTINUE to rule in her favour. She and Horrorwitz may be skanky but whoever is making the call is smart, you have to give them credit.

That Judge Gordon is full of sh*t, there will be no repercussions on his end. In fact, it may even explain his ruling to not place a gag order on them.

My question is; why is she being allowed to play the ILLEGALLY obtained tapes.

This crazy BS should be tried in Nebraska or Iowa where normal folks live and the courts are less likely to be starstruck and where the tribe is not as influential

Watching this disaster play out boggles my mind that we, as a nation, think our form of courts and justice is superior to others and even have the nerve to export it to other countries.

Well, these women will have no respect for her if she is not going to meetings, doing her part to raise money. Ox is selfish, she wouldn't do it unless it brings her attention, front and center...We all know, a DV victim, the last thing they want to be, is have someone...playing a piano in her nightie, singer lies and cannot keep the lies straight. Plus, zero to charity...right, Ox. Remember, Domestic Violence Victims....Oksana uses you, not you using her for help. That's what sociopaths do.

“The most universal behavior of unscrupulous people is not directed, as one might imagine, at our fearfulness. It is, perversely, an appeal to our sympathy.”

Ari Emanuel and Larry King have been had by the sociopath, Oksana. Or have they been helping the sociopath's agenda from the very beginning?

Am I the only one who is totally sick with this entire business? This should be a private matter and it is wrong to give this woman a platform to continue her PR antics.

I am not saying that Mel Gibson behaved well and presumably he does need treatment and even punishment for his behaviour. Having said that I find her behaviour to be quite disgusting and her disrespect for the legal system in the United States is beyond belief. There was a time when mistresses with a child were happy to receive the generous amount of money that he is willing to give her but obviously she is after more, much more.

Well Mel, this is a learning curve for you - next time check your girlfriend's background and history before you get involved with a woman who is (literally) going to take you to the cleaners.

When I read stories like this, the one thing that jumps out at me is, why are these groups that are suppose to be so knowledgeable about D V listening to and believing the crap that is being spewed from a proven liar and extortionist. It only makes them look bad and irresponsible in their judgment. To have this woman represent DV survivors is a slap in the face to true survivors and will only hurt their cause in the long run. People will no longer just believe what comes out of their mouth if they loose faith in then as a group. They need to open their eyes and see the whole picture before backing the wrong Ox, I mean horse.

You took the word right out of my mouth!

In fairness to these groups, Oksana has put them in a hell of spot. They are between a rock and a hard place - accept the backing of a woman that has serious credibility issues or deny the backing of a woman who claims she is a victim of domestic violence. They are in a no win situation.

A Judge shouldn't give a Shi$ who offends, not if he is a good good Judge. A former prosecutor, that became a Judge...like Gordon, ought to be able sniff out BS like OG/DH when he smells it.

Keep seeing images of dancing ItoS...in Judge Gordon.

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.

What self-respecting domestic violence group would want to associate themselves with this silicone famew****? She makes a joke of real domestic violence with her $50,000/month child support nonsense and constant crying to the media.

Sadly Ruth, I have to agree...

One quick phone call to David Foster or Timothy Dalton could have saved Mel over $10 Million dollars to Oksy, and another $10M for the child she manufactured with him.
