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.


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.

Thanks, Jayne!

So, MamaG left on 1/19/2011 and this took place on 1/26/2011 the same day that the LASD asked for the family court file?

The heat is on...

For all you goofs that are hopeful about Mel is going to jail, remember Chris Brown beat the daylights out of a bloodied Rihanna and he never went to jail. Get real people, so you won't be disappointed when he gets sent to anger management and has to do some community service.

@Shuffle - see your point but one of the major things holding up this case was the computer forensics. It would appear they have all the info they need from her laptop. Maybe they were comparing the computer info against her statements under oath in family court and to the media? Just guessing.

I agree that had held things up, but I am sure they got what they needed from that, but this interview would fit in well with the timeline to see if she was contradicting her self from her original statement to them to what she has said publicly to the media and what she said in the depo.... they would try and trap her in another interview to use it against... whenever you are being inyerviewed they are always looking to see where the incosistancies are in your various statements...

An hour and a half with LE? Hardly a "grilling" session. I say charge Mel with domestic violence now, even if Oksana isn't charged yet with extortion. If she tried to extort - charges will come. Mel already admitted to hitting Oksana and he shouldn't get away with it just because he is some Hollywood star. I don't care how much she pushed him to do so. I heard those tapes and they were horrible. He's sounded crazy and dangerous. Charge his arse, and continue with the extortion investigation.

Remember this... You do not shake a two month old baby unless you want to get justifiably smacked.

Yeah Ivan you are probably right, Mel will just get community service, like working in a beaver shelter. Maybe he can meet a real woman there.

wonder if ... the ex-bodyguard/sex partner ALSO met with the sheriff IN SECRET to spill his secrets about the (Russki) gold-digger's EXTORTION SCHEMES?

THERE ISN'T any reason for just about everything this trollop has EVER DONE -- except BLACKMAIL, extortion in attempting to strike it rich using SEX with ALL the men in her past, Her track record is obvious ... well do***ented: clear and simple.

Go back to Russia you talentless FREE LOADER Give your children BEHIND with their fathers for their safety and proper lives ,,, it;s best for their well=being,

If Mel isn't going anywhere (other than into an orange jumpsuit) then neither is the Ox. They will throw out both cases or charge him. Or deport him back to Oz. He alreay admitted to part of the act, with a little lame lying excuse thrown in to boot. They should just ignore both cases and leave the both of them to cry to their lawyers! LOL

No one really cares about either of them except the lame hangers on that post here on their "teams", what losers!

Thank goodness your not in law and justice! These are two separate criminal cases. One was justified as an act of defense of a minor child. The other one is an extortion case involving the liar whore who got preggie for money! He didn't want her but she clung onto him like static cling!

No wonder OG's team is quiet. They have been busy as hell between the LASD wanting the family court file, grilling OG, trying to figure out how to keep KH from being deposed, trying to get MamaG out of the country (fast) my mind I see two attorneys, each with a blanket trying to slap out fires all around them. LOL

I am informed azzhole. mel is dangerous and crazy! And so is Oksana.

I agree Ivan. Mel does need some help in the anger management area. Just like any psychological issue, it's a difficult thing with which to deal. I know, I manage anger every day unlike a few years ago.

I don't want the Russian Fly to skate. It is time for her to pay the piper for all the gold digging she has done.

The little girl should be with Mel and his family. She will be in a loving and caring environment. The Russian Fly would just teach her how to be a gold digging ho bag.

To all of you saying it was okay that he HIT a woman because he claims she was shaking their baby is beyond absurd. He said it, so it must be true, right? Give me a break, he knew he was going to get his ass handed to him for abuse, so he made up a lie. What evidence is there that she ever was abusive toward anyone? None, but of course there is plenty of evidence that shows Mel to be an out of control rageaholic. They're both crazy, but he's dangerous as well, which is a very scary combination.

LOL @ M. Gabriel thinking the two cases are "separate"

Wake up and smell Mel's vodka.

They will throw them both out, or just give Mel community service.

They are considering them together for a reason.

Let's get them over with, Mel in community service, so we can go back to sleep.
