Oksana's Ex-Bodyguard Sides With Mel Gibson

1/20/2011 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The person who knows more about Oksana Grigorieva's claims against Mel Gibson than anyone tells TMZ ... Oksana is grossly exaggerating or downright lying about the alleged domestic violence incident.

Kristian Herzog

Kristian Herzog -- who served as Oksana's bodyguard until recently -- tells TMZ, Oksana admitted to him Mel never punched her, as she claimed to authorities.  Rather, Herzog says Oksana told him Mel slapped her, and that's it.  As TMZ first reported, Mel admitted slapping Oksana because he says she was shaking baby Lucia wildly.

Herzog -- who has been subpoenaed by Mel's lawyers in the custody war  -- tells us Oksana admitted to him that she secretly taped Mel Gibson "to pressure Mel to pay her money."  Oksana is currently being investigated by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department for alleged extortion.

Herzog -- who was privy to virtually every conversation Oksana had with her lawyers -- claims he had a sexual relationship with Oksana -- she denies it. 

Herzog -- who runs The Bodyguard Group of Beverly Hills -- calls Oksana a "sexual sorceress."

Oksana's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, had no comment.

Herzog was on Mel's witness list, and not on OG's witness list!!

I'm sorry, but after hearing those tapes of Mel ranting and screaming like a lunatic, I don't care what this guys says. How do you know he isn't being paid off to lie about her??????
No, something is wrong with Mel Gibson and I hope he seeks treatment for alcohol and anger. I am a huge Mel Gibson fan and have been for years but he has some problems he needs to address. I wish them both well.

They threatened, and screamed about EG, but what to do about Herzog!

@ Donna --

There also comes a time when 'anger' is an appropriate response.

Extortion comes to mind.

The rats are jumping ship. Her mom is getting out of Dodge as fast as she can. Herzog is throwing her under the bus this time and the porn star and pimp are the icing on the cake. Maybe her ex lawyer will put the final nail in her coffin. Hi Ox are you lurking? Read it and weep!
