Battered Women: Don't Call Us Oksana, We'll Call You

11/15/2010 7:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Los Angeles battered women's group wants no part of Oksana Grigorieva, contrary to what her lawyer told TMZ.

Oksana’s lawyer, Dan Horowitz, told us Oksana will be working with Peace Over Violence.

But a rep for Peace Over Violence adamantly denies any affiliation with Oksana, telling TMZ,”Peace Over Violence has not been and is not currently in contact with Oksana Grigorieva or her representatives.” Sources tell us the group received a backlash after members read Horowitz's claims on TMZ that Oksana would be working with them.

Horowitz explained to TMZ, “I’m guessing it didn’t get approved. The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is working on getting us alternative groups to work with.”

Looks like Oksana can't get arrested in this town.  Then again ...

JLS, so Mel have no right to have slapped Oksana according to your definition of the law.

What about Lucia's rights? If Mel's version of event is true, what about her rights NOT to be used as a shield by her mother? What about her rights to not being carried around by an out-of-control lunatic and being shaken in the process? Doesn't your definition of the law apply to Lucia as well?

Shouldn't we protect the weaker one in all possible cir***stances? And isn't a 2-month old baby the weaker one in this case?

JLS, your a moron or oksana's friend/ lawyer
. It is so obvious that this woman is full of it. I lived in europe for a couple of years and let me tell you, what she has done, i have seen it a hundred times, by russian, romanians, bulgarians etc. It's like they teach this in school. Meet a rich guy, get him to leave his wife, have a baby, claim you get beaten, divorce them, then hello lots of money. It is so obvious and disgusting. I for one would never trust these kind of women.

This woman in my opinion is suffering from a borderline personality disorder ( and also is a narcissist to state the obvious) as well as being a gold digger. She and Mel BOTH need psychiatric care . This whole case is a waste of time and makes yet another mockery of the "justice" system.
I'm betting she will have some kind of staged breakdown or threatening to harm herself at some point as a last ditched effort for support when the judge throws out her case. Pathetic.

As strange as this may sound, I am actually feeling pity for Oksana. To me it has become clear that she really is suffering from some sort of mental illness, and God knows I am among many things also a mental health advocate. I wish the family courts would order both parents into psychiatric evaluations, and based on the findings, order them both into counseling, and medication, whatever it takes for them to be the best they can be for that child. I don't hate someone like Oksana, I do get angry when she abuses the system and tries to manipulate it for her own gain

Gene:

I understand your pity and compassion. BUT, this is a much more dangerous situation. There is, I believe, much more to consider here. The child simply cannot be safe with this woman. It is a fight that must be completed most especially for the child. I would rather that it had not taken place for all of America to see, but that isn't something any of us could control. Oksana is an adult. She has had every opportunity to stop this nonsense and she has not. She has continually slandered and wound lie after lie around destorying everything in her proximity. Since she will not tell the truth and wishes to destroy the father and perhaps herself as well, the justice system has to work and sort it out. It has gone to far now for it to be any different.

I feel certain that they have enough information to get this woman off the streets and into some type of psychiatric center and/or prison for extortion, which I believe she did commit. Until that happens, she is dangerous for everyone and most especially for that little girl.

Wow, I'm guessing they hope the judge doesn't listen to any media outlets. In this quest for a domestic violence agency to validate this woman they are showing their hands big time. I've never seen such a blatant attempt to favourably "position" someone in the eyes of the court. This is not a heartfelt protection of her child. This is Oksana furthering her "brand": The poor innocent abused waif, menaced and held captive by demonic Mel Gibson. I would be very suspicious of any agency who hooked up with this womsn. I'm sure the agencies know she is poison and the real ones will stay away in droves. Horowitz has to be the worst lawyer I've ever seen. He screws his client everytime he opens his mouth.

JLS, I hope you will not get too busy today and do contact these agencies. These pro-abuse women who rationalize Gibson's actions are beyond anything I've ever seen.

If harm comes to Oksana, considering all the threats and encouragement from threats here on TMZ, can TMZ be held liable? I'm really wondering about this.

With much respect JLS

At this point it is too much he said she said from Oksana and Mel.
The post last night was about Oksana possibly being representative of Domestic Abuse and working for the agency.
Most believed Oksana would not be a good representative of Domestic Violence because instead of going to report the attack to the authorities she ran to lawyers asking for a money deal.

This was not getting help for her injuries nor protection from her alleged attacker. And there were proven inconsistencies in her much LATER story that her Baby had also been injured.

If Oksana would had worked for this or any other Domestic Violence agency and abused women were to follow her example of NOT seeking immediate help

MANY WOMEN AND/OR WOMEN AND CHILDREN WOULD DIE

SO JLS
AT THIS POINT IT IS NOT A MATTER OF WHETHER THERE WAS A SLAP OR NOT, BUT WHAT OKSANA DID AFTER THE FACT AND BATTERED WOMEN MUST NOT DO WHAT OKSANA DID AND CONTINUES TO DO IN REGARDS TO A SUPPOSED CASE OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Anon,
I have seen no threats against Oksana, people are just outraged at her blatant lies and insistence upon destroying "the man" after she destroyed "his family" and how hard she is going after his and his family's money.

Media Advisory


TMZ Article Misleading; Oksana Grigorieva Never Asked to be Domestic Violence Spokesperson

Sacramento, November 16, 2010—On November 13, the website TMZ published a headline which implied that the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence had pursued Oksana Grigorieva, the ex-girlfriend of Mel Gibson who has made claims of domestic violence in their relationship, to act as an agency spokesperson. This is incorrect. Ms. Grigorieva does not work for the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (CPEDV) in any capacity.

As a domestic violence coalition we seek to validate victims/survivors by encouraging them to define their experiences and acknowledging that they are the experts in their own lives. Therefore, as an organization we seek to provide information and resources so victims/survivors can consider options and make empowered life choices. We advocate for all battered persons while respecting victims'/survivors’ rights to self-determination and control over their own lives. CPEDV feels that anyone who believes they have been victimized has a right to tell his or her story. However, Ms. Grigorieva was never asked to play an official role for CPEDV. Furthermore, CPEDV is not in a position to validate any of her claims. “That is not our role,” stated Tara Shabazz, Executive Director of CPEDV.

CPEDV is the statewide domestic violence coalition, and provides leadership on public policy issues, community education and training and professional services to its member programs. We are committed to raising public awareness about domestic violence by educating policymakers, media, individuals, and communities on effective and comprehensive intervention and prevention strategies to end domestic violence.


Shabazz also said that the TMZ article mischaracterized the role that her organization plays with individuals seeking information and resources on domestic violence.

“All people who contact our agency and identify themselves as domestic violence victims are provided with support,” she said. “Our agency offers information, education, or referrals to direct service providers in the person’s community. Ms. Grigorieva was never asked to be a spokesperson, or given any official role within our coalition. TMZ is a tabloid publication which writes its headlines to maximize traffic to its website. Those headlines do not necessarily reflect the stories they accompany, or the facts on the ground.”

CPEDV recognizes that domestic violence is a serious threat to the well-being of all women, children and men, and hold steadfast to the belief that safe homes and safe families are the foundation of a safe society. We affirm the rights of all persons to live without fear of abuse, oppression or the threat of violence, and believe every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

About CPEDV
The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is California’s statewide domestic violence coalition, with over 150 member organizations and individuals. Working at the local, state and national levels for nearly 30 years, the California Partnership has a long track record of successfully passing over 100 pieces of legislation on behalf of domestic violence victims and their children. As the unified voice for California’s domestic violence agencies, CPEDV provides statewide leadership on public policy issues, offers professional training and services to domestic violence service providers and promotes public awareness through community outreach efforts. With offices in Sacramento, CPEDV’s member programs span the entire state.
