Mel Gibson Plays the Publicist Card in Court

11/18/2010 5:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's child custody war with Oksana Grigorieva has gone downright Hollywood, because his publicist has gotten into the act.

Mel Gibson Publicist

TMZ has obtained the declaration of Alan Nierob, a long-time publicist who has repped Mel for 15 years.

Nierob's declaration is fascinating, creating a picture of a publicity-hungry girlfriend who loved Mel and loved what he could do for her career.

Nierob, who says he was frequently around Oksana during the three years she and Mel were together, says bluntly, "In my opinion she enjoyed press events more than most of my clients' spouses and significant others."

Nierob's declaration is also important, because he makes the case that after the January 6 blowout fight, Oksana showed love, not fear around Mel.

Nierob recalls a January 27 dinner where Oksana was "joking, laughing and extremely happy."

Nierob adds, "While Miss Grigorieva and Mr. Gibson were dating they often were together and she never appeared reluctant."

And in the parenting department, Nierob claims, "On a multitude of other occasions, Miss Grigorieva commented to me that she believed Mr. Gibson was a  'great' father to Lucia."

If the judge is going to take custody away from her, the baby should go into foster care or be given to a relative because he doesn't deserve custody either. They both need meds and that's likely why they were attracted to each other.

If you are going to discount the publicist, you also need to discount the sound guy, facialist and Oxy's mother.

The case brought forth by Ms Grigorieva will go down in flames.

Her attorneys credibility has been injured.

People are being paid by Mel Gibson to say these things. In no way should those of us not on his payroll believe what we are being told in these declarations.

Where's the family court people, the social workers, the psychologists, etc. to observe each parent with the baby? Results of tests and time spent observing from another room are hopefully non-biased. I say hopefully because at this point I presume Mel and his bank of attorneys could find a way to get a pay off to the third party!

Team Mel! Hell. Toxsana is always bringing in people so why not Mel. Go Mel's publicist! I believe everything he is saying because Toxi is a liar. She is a fame whore and golddigger that could care less about her children. All she wants is the attention and money.
