Mel's Lawyers Serve Oksana's Ex-Bodyguard

1/19/2011 9:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's former bodyguard -- the man who knows her playbook inside and out -- was subpoenaed today in her custody war with Mel Gibson ... and he got served while he was blabbing about the case.

Sources connected to the case tell us Kristian Herzog (left) was served on Wednesday as he left one of several interviews he did about Mel and Oksana. One of his stops was with Mike Von Fremd (center) of ABC News.

As for why Mel's attorneys want to get Herzog in court -- we're told he was in virtually every lawyer's meeting that Oksana had last year and knows all her secrets.

Most importantly ... he is not bound by attorney-client privilege -- which makes him the perfect fly on the wall.

Thanks for the older bio Sam. You notice her height was listed at 5'6 1/2" then. Right now its
listed at 5'8". It's absolutely trivial . .

Split from Mel Gibson [April 14, 2010].

She probably used that date because that was the date she announced to the world from Russia that they had broken up and that 'we would soon know the truth.'

@Sam...umm, you want me to talk then you want me to be quiet? I'm not arguing with "everyone", I'm straightening the story out, just as you did.

@Bonnie You are a typical negative, toxic person, so filled with hate that you can't see the truth of it all. Mel isn't a Jew hater at all. He doesn't hate anyone. You do.

I sure do feel a lot better after reading the LA Times article and this new one about Herzog (and seeing Mel in Costa Rica), then I did when I first read the ROL article. I really need to be more like some of you that don't give ROL much thought. I think I'm just still ticked off about the tapes that I just automatically go into 'mad mode' when I read anything about Mel there! LOL!

Just Saying    

Following on from earlier posts about Dalton.....I think Oky wanted nothing more than a comfortable lifestyle afforded her by being married or attached to a famous actor, and what better way to keep a man beholden to you or to promise you marriage other than by having his child ?
However Oky was and is the product of her environment to an extent. Dalton was always an actor first and celebrity second. I would go so far as to say that he detested the celebrity culture. He was modest, unassuming, humble, down to earth and never into the trappings of wealth and celebrity. He never filled her head with silly ideas of fame and stardom which Mel might have done -- or certainly did not discourage.
Oky was constrained in that relationship and certainly by British culture which frowns upon naked ambition and overt grab for cash. There is nothing more vulgar to the British than to openly demand/desire cash, and to go about it in a very obvious, determined and unrestrained way, by fair means or foul. Oky in Hollywood is like a kiddy in a candy store owned by a favourite uncle.

Looks like the LA Times at least knows how to include all the DA's quotes (unlike ROL). They sure gave a more well-rounded approach:

Mel Gibson domestic violence case: Prosecutors closing in on decision
January 19, 2011 | 6:40 am
Mel Gibson's attorney met with a prosecutor Tuesday to discuss whether domestic violence charges would be filed against the actor, as officials moved closer to resolving the long-running case.

Two sources confirmed the meeting. The details of the discussion were not revealed. The sources said prosecutors were getting closer to a decision on whether to charge Gibson but that any prosecution was not imminent.

L.A. County sheriff's investigators have spent months looking into whether Gibson hit ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Officials have said that case is closely tied to another investigation into whether someone tried to extort money from Gibson.

Gibson and his Grigorieva also are locked in a bitter custody dispute over their year-old daughter, Lucia.

The Los Angeles district attorney's office in October began considering whether to file domestic violence charges related to an alleged attack by the actor-director. But sources have told the Los Angeles Times that prosecutors won't make a decision on the case until the Sheriff's Department has finished its inquiry into claims that Grigorieva or someone close to her attempted to extort money from Gibson.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing, said the cases were closely intertwined.

Many of the questions center on the leaking of recordings of Gibson using a racial slur and abusive language during several telephone calls with his former girlfriend.

News of the meeting Tuesday was first reported by Radar Online.

Makes you wonder why its taken so long to get him!

That being said, I remember Harvey saying on tmz live months ago that Herzog absolutely hates Gibson so I wouldn't really put it past him to lie, just like Oksana...even under oath.

Well, do you think Herzog still thinks anything of Horowitz, or even Garbus at this point?
