Oksana Grigorieva Secretly Met With Sheriff

2/4/2011 10:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva secretly met with L.A. County Sheriff's investigators last week, who grilled her about allegations that she tried to extort millions of dollars from Mel Gibson ... TMZ has learned.

0126_oksana_EX_TMZ_01

Sources tell us ... Oksana met the two investigators on January 26, and the investigators fired off a barrage of questions for an hour-and-a-half. 

We're told the investigators were particularly interested in why Oksana decided to hire a civil lawyer rather than a family law attorney when she tried negotiating a settlement with Mel.  The upshot -- the investigators want to know if Oksana was gunning for a payout in return for keeping the explosive tapes secret.

As TMZ first reported ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Department will turn the extortion case over to the L.A. County District Attorney next week.  The D.A. is expected to make a fairly quick decision on whether to charge Oksana with extortion.  The D.A. will also decide whether to charge Mel with domestic violence.

Hiya and thanks. Tell already provided the link. It definitely puts the aceshowbiz articles in the wrong, including their claim that Mr. Mel was present. Bet that was a plant job by Miss Oksana.

Hiya :)
I'm tending to agree those recordings span more than just one night.

Ok, it just doesn't work.

We only have Miss Oksana's word that the break-up happened Feb. 18, because she was smiling too much at the tree guy. That doesn't jibe with Mr. Mel calling her glum c at the ceremony.

We also only have Miss Oksana's word that the recordings were all made in just the one night. Would he wait a week to complain about equipment and telling her she couldn't handle scoring a movie?

Yep, I'm in obsessed pickyune mode here.

On Feb 18 per Oksana
“It was the tree planting ceremony for Lucia. Each child of Mel’s has a tree planted somewhere at the mansion and each tree has a placenta from that child planted under the roots of the tree. Lucia started crying, and I went back into the house. Mel followed me ... he started picking on my English. I told him he was being mean, and he got enraged. Throughout the day, he came back, yelling and screaming. At some point he grabbed Lucia, tossed her in my arms. He said, ‘take her or I’ll hurt her.’”

Hiya :)

The placenta bit is hooey. Mr. Mel didn't own that house when his older kids were born, so how could there be placentas of those kids planted there?

In retelling of the story later, Miss Oksana drops the placenta bit and goes on about Mr. Mel going into a jealous rage because she smiled too much at the gardner.

Trying to unravel Miss Oksana's various lines of ka-ka is not conducive to serenity.

Hi everyone!

Well according to her imdb profile Oksana claims........


"""The two suddenly became bitter and hard on each other, revealing their previously hidden irreconcilable differences. They finally split up in April of 2010, """


Regardless of whatever date she quotes, if she were truly fearful for her life as she has claimed then Jan. 6 would have been the believable date we would have accepted. Jan. 6 being the night she allegedly taped Mel. She had so many reasons for doing so and none were because of safety issues... just look at her track record with public appearances with Mel after that "explosive" night. And look at her various break up dates. None of her actions are in sync with her claims of fearing for her life.

Don't you like the way she works in a mention of the mansion, so that maybe people will think that's where Lucia's placenta is planted? In reality, the tree/placenta event took place in the smaller Malibu house.

For Your Amusement:
One last thing. This is a defense that won't ever float. Lindsay KNEW the price of the necklace when she stole it. If somebody steals it, they are going to be arrested for grand theft because of the price it was being sold for. Game, set and match. This silly lawyers that work here at TMZ better keep their day jobs. Honestly, it really sickens me the way they operate here. They build the case against the celeb and then all of a sudden switch to offering up some silly baseless defense. I'm very close to leaving this website for good because of it.

What the h3 ll is your prob? this attorney is doing HER JOB! a dam fine job, i may add! i don't like Linsey, but even she deserves a fair defense attorney who will do all that she can according to the law to get her client off! the Cali code dictates the price must be "fair market price", NOT shawn...she is just doing what she is suppose to do... JLS you said you were an attorney...but so far in ALL of your posts, you show ignorance of the law, blatant disregard and have NO IDEA what a good lawyer is suppose to do! I don't know what you consider "baseless" but the defense seems to have legitimate, legal defense...NOT at all baseless, as you say... once again, you show your ignorance of the law which shows us how idiotic your statements are which shows me at least that you are NO lawyer as you claim with all of your imbecilic comments!

Lets remember after the Jan. 6 "fight" where Ox claims she was so in fear of her life and suffering from a concussion she went on the Eurpoean tour w/Mel for a couple of weeks shortly after that. She may have started collectively recording around Jan. 6 but we can't believe anything she says when it comes to dates or anything for that matter. I think the majority of the recordings came after the "revealing" interview of Feb. 18?? Mel saw Ox's true colors shining through and figured out belately what she was all about. Just my take on it..
