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.

1115_oksana_peace_over_violence_EX_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 ...

FIRST RESPONSE FROM MY EMAILS I SENT YESTRDAY!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your email and concern regarding TMZ's recent story on Oksana Grigoreiva.


Unfortunately, TMZ provided misinformation regarding this story. Peace Over Violence is not now, and has never been associated in any way with Oksana Grigoreiva. TMZ received false information from Oksana's legal team and printed it without verification.


Peace Over Violence has been an expert in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault for the last 39 years, provides emergency and intervention services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, and has extensive prevention programs working with youth. Our reputation within the Los Angeles community and the media is stellar.


Please let me know if you have any additional questions or comments. Thank you!

Oksana Grigorieva’s legal team has suffered another blow -- her top family law attorney Allen Shiftman has quit the case, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

He delivered the sudden news to the Russian musician a short time ago.

lawyer #43? Allen Shiftman

I think when Horowitz stole and sold private info to TMZ
it was a no no to Alen Shiftman

ROFL @ This story too! THIS is F'N Funny! IF she were telling the truth they would swaddle her up as their poster child! NO organization of Violence has or will cuz she is a LIAR!

THIS is Horowitz doing, not Mel's the gag ordered lifted, discovery, depositions already in place.. HOROWITZ has ALL this info also by now! Mel's side isn't doin or sayin Sheot yet. He's fighting for custody of his child, SHE is fighting for FAME and MONEY! She's PURE EVIL!

Maybe we should talk to the people that do the Larry King show.

Tell them to read TMZ stories from the last 2 weeks. And the user comments.

Tell them they are supporting an extortionist and say, 1/2 hour should be from team oskana and 1/2 hour for team Mel. And if they can't get both sides, don't show either side.

Damn news travels fast, in 15 minutes this and her lead family attorney quits. Mr. Horowtiz is in too deep at this point to turn back.

"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."

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

Oksana is working with the state of California to promote Battered Womens rights.

I sent an email to this organization last night after I read the TMZ article about Peace Over Violence having this psycho woman be one of their representatives. I just received an email reply from them where they said in no way are they associated with Oskana and that the information that was supplied to TMZ by her legal team was incorrect. So I guess evidently they were getting a lot of backlash from readers and backed out or her lawyers just lied like she's been doing for months now.

This group's credibility just sky rocketed.

Domestic Violence is a very real problem and true victims deserve both help and compassion. Many people question her claims and realize endorsing her is counterproductive at this juncture.
