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."

Umm... doesn't this douche-bag publicist work for Mel?? Who gives a rats azz what he says. He's on Mel's payroll. Next!

That type of thinking can be applied to Ms. Oksana's mother, facialist, and possibly dentist. They all know her in some capacity.

Yeah because bringing out your facialist, your dead babysitter and your "sound guy" were the big guns for Ox.

well yes he's on Mel's payroll so he'll obviously take his side, but you still can't dimiss the fact that he's likely seen a lot. The dates he mentions after the "big blow up" can definitely be used against her and the fact that he's seen first hand that she was all about publicity does not work in her favor either.

The fact that he's sticking up for Mel isn't the issue, it's the things that he's witnessed that matter!

AND OKSANA NEVER CALLED THE COPS AND THE DENTIST LIED A FEWW TIMES AND OKSANA TELLS DIFFERENT LIES FOR THE SAME EVENTS ALL THE TIME.. The publicist will not lie for he won't want to lose his credibility and his business for he'd go to jail if he did. Too easy for Oksana to put him there .. he's not a liar since Oksana was always a lying media whore trying to advance her crappy non career uging Mel. He was a fool to get involved with her when his wife is stellar and beautiful and this trick whore Oksana should sue her lawyers for screwing up any change of a decent face ... and her boobs... she always dressed provacative and lied to King telling him this is the kind of clothes, blouse, she alawys wears... always the paid for boobs hanging out like her over blown lying lips. TAKE THE BABY AWAY FROM OKSANA AND GIVE HER THE SAME 2,500. A MONTH CHILD SUPPORT LIKE HER SON GETS FROM HIS DAD.
