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.

Gibson got played by a pro. Ox got pregnant to boot.

As always it's been the baby. It's still working.

That is one very pissed off man on the phone (not knowing he was being taped) saying what he felt in no uncertin terms. Just like anyone else, have a down and dirty fight, calling each other and threaten and meaning nothing. Just being pissed.

Freida. Thankyou so much!!!! You're right about boxers. They say boxers go straight from juvenile to senile ;o) I will definately look at that list. Maggie is our "special needs" baby, we kinda dote on her. I had no idea about ACE or tramadol. I'm glad I know now to ask. I'm truly grateful for your advice, thankyou Freida.

janet I agree - but I think it's more than just pissed off. When I first heard it I thought this is the sound of a man driven to the brink. I felt the pain in his voice... the confusion.... it was more than pissed off. There had to be more to it than we were being led to believe. After a while I started reading the comments on TMZ instead of just the articles and lo and behold there was much more.

In Plain Sight    

What is in the best interests of Lucia? Is it a mother who time and time again INDISCRIMINATINGLY AND CAPRICIOUSLY sleeps around with men with no regard to whether they are married or not and each time ultimately accusing them of being a danger to herself and her children to the point of taking legal action???

Even if it were true that any of these men were a danger to OG, (which I do NOT believe) what does this say about her ability to establish a stable, secure and decent environment for the children?

OG clearly has an established "MO" of cozying up multiple male partners, knowingly allowing pregnancies to result, then seeking restraining orders or issuing threats to leak private information to the public (which thankfully hasn't been successful in this attempt on Mel) with the purpose of gaining monetary rewards for her "efforts" with or without the aid of a restraining order.

People! You know - there are REAL dangers to women - REAL cases where women need protection. Not only does OG drain vital legal resources at the taxpayer's expense by engaging the courts in her schemes, but her petty games of manipulation WEAKEN the legitimacy of the cases of women who really do need restraining orders.

How valid were her claims??? Apparently the men were not so dangerous to her to prevent her from returning and trying to get a little more out of them. It seems to me the only time OG really seems to need a restraining order is when the men stop the money flow from their pocket to her greedy little paws!

Yeh, then the men are really dangerous, uh huh, dangerous... they'd kill her... uh huh. Isn't it odd people that the idea of killing or harming OG always seems to originate from her own little warped ideas???

I do have to give her credit for having the foresight, however, to acquire a recording device, get it ready to record, conceal it effectively and then goad Mel into a rage so she could create a good tool to use against him. But, is this the type of talent the court feels is the best kind of skill to pass on to Lucia???

Any parent who would deny or inhibit the other parent's involvement with their children - AS OG HAS CLEARLY ATTEMPTED TO DO TO MEL - should be recognized by the court for what they are! Manipulative individuals who use their kids as pawns!

TIME AND TIME AGAIN OG CLEARLY SHOWS SHE'S IN THE WORST INTEREST OF LUCIA!!! IS THE COURT NEVER GOING TO RECOGNIZE IT????? COME ON!!!!

When OG finally reaches an age of not being able to get pregnant, I fear for the safety of her children for the riska OG will take to support herself as she demonstrated no desire to earn a living for herself like most US Citizens... oh, yeh, and she gets everything free - not even taxes on it - housing, lawyer expenses, child support.. whatever .. all paid by someone else... in a country in which she isn't even a citizen! Wow. I guess that's worth some infamy in itself. (Another skill to pass on to the kids!)

Can't the court barcode this b*tch with a warning to let potential "mates" know that she's a coniving, sweet-smiling, coy little backstabbing gold-digger" and an "impregnate at your own risk" additional warning?

She is abusing the court's intent of having equal lawyer representation and I hope that the court recognizes it and holds HER responsible for the excessive lawyer fees she's trying to dump on Mel! Come on legal system... work for a change!

I am so sorry for the children, Sasha and Lucia. Sometimes kids take on their parent's characteristics and if so, she is cultivating a next generation of ignoble, dishonest and deceitful people. However, there is a chance that they will become the opposite of her, make a place for themselves in this world and leave it a little better than they found it - and not do so at the expense of anyone but themselves!

I don't think this optimistic outcome is likely though, if the courts continue to enable OG in her bleeding others financially and allowing her to live with no responsibilities whatsoever.

I honestly don't get involved in celeb nonsense... but really, this is an eye-sore on America. I'm guessing the Russian population is ashamed of her as well.

Why can't she own up to her actions, get a job, get a life of her own and contribute something of herself to the world instead of trying to usurp anyone or anything she can!

Why? I could ask that a million times over and the answer would each time be the same: "Why?" "Because she can."

Heya Lil'

How are things in the land of Far the Fuhk Away? Drying up?

I was wondering what rock Mr. Potato Headgehog was hiding under. Looks like they found the right rock (or maybe it was a bus)!!

LA!! A big hi to you too :o) Well, we're not flooding anymore but still raining, but rain can be good, it'll help wash the muck away. Unfortunately the Victorians are now flooding, but not on the scale of Queensland thank goodness.

Doesn't Herzog make you itch? He looks like he'd have really soft, pudgy hands that have never known a real days work in his life. Very unattractive. Ugh!

Hedgehog is definitely a MAJOR "Ick" factor!

Had a wierd day today. Don't know if you heard about the cop that was shot at the High School. I was on the 101 Freeway at 11:35 this morning playing "Dodge the Police Cars" They were coming from everywhere­!! Thought I was finally safe when I exited at Valley Circle (going to Sambo's)...o­nly to find out that the next 50 police cars behind me were exiting at Valley Circle as well! The School is only a few miles away from where I was going. Very scary....e­specially when I found out what it was about. My friends son goes to El Camino Real. Fortunatel­y he had called in sick today! Can't imagine what the other parents were going through!

With all the shootings, floods, snow blizzards, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc....Kinda makes you think again about that 2012 movie!

Alas....If only Ms. Oinky was a virgin, we might have been able to toss her in a volcano as a sacrafice. DAMN!!

LOL! I know what you mean. Haven't seen the movie but I know about the 2012 theory, hubby and I often comment to each other that we won't need to worry about... whatever... after next year.

By the way, I'm sure its been discussed that I've missed but isn't it a conflict of interest for Garbus to represent both Oxy & Herzog?

Seems to have abandoned Herzog.
