TMZ broke the story ... on Wednesday the L..A. County Sheriff's Dept. turned over it's report on the Oksana Grigorieva extortion investigation. 

Sources tell us the Sheriff's report is exhaustive and complicated and will take time to digest.

The D.A. has said ... they will make a decision on whether to file criminal charges as a package.

We're told the decision absolutely will not be made this week.

Hiya!

I heard about Miss Oksana giving music lessons.
I'd sooner believe in the Great Honeydew Melon than anything she says.

I'll be so glad when this is over. I've enjoyed everyone's company but the adults that made this mess and their varying degrees of culpability have to live with the outcome. Whatever that outcome may be. The adults just need to suck it up. I feel bad for Lucia and Alex. Two innocents dragged into the mud by greed.

"Oksana flew her parents -mother qnd father,

LA TIMES INVESTIGATION REVEALS GIBSON EX $20M DEMAND FOR TAPES

According to a Los Angeles Times investigation published today, Mel Gibson’s entertainment lawyer was summoned to a Century City office 11 months ago where Gibson’s Ukrainian girlfriend’s attorneys played audio tapes of the star ranting and spewing epithets. And then came the punch line: The Ex wanted 20 million dollars to destroy the tapes.

According to the LAT, the Ex’s lawyer played snippets of the tapes for Gibson's entertainment lawyer, Thomas Hansen. "$10M for her, including child support. $10M for Lucia. ... Give guarantee of mouth shut," Hansen wrote in his notes.

In a May 2 e-mail, the Ukrainian offered explanations for the recordings that completely contradict the spin her lawyers have published recently—that she was trying to gather evidence of domestic violence—stating that she wanted Gibson to "hear for yourself what you sound like once you are enraged" and then saying the tapes were her insurance should Gibson's be inclined to “not take care of me financially…..".

At a subsequent mediation, according to the LAT:

“They reached an agreement that spanned 20 years and amounted to nearly $11 million for Lucia and more than $5 million for Grigorieva, who would also get a Steinway piano from Gibson's Malibu home. Custody was to be split. The deal required that "all evidence" — a reference to the photos and recordings — "be destroyed in a manner agreed upon both parties."”


It sure sounds like extortion to us! But no wonder the ex got buyer's remorse: The baby was getting more money than she! Greedy, greedy, greedy!

Meanwhile, the AP is reporting that the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Office is has announced that they have now turned over all evidence in the extortion investigation to Southern California prosecutors.

Stay tuned, because you just know that this story is only going to get better over time, as more details about the grifter’s past and the manner in which she tried to shake Gibson down played out.

I think when this first went to trial, her lawyers and the courts thought it was going to be a slam dunk. They had all planned on charging Mel, and we all know who led that parade. Now , however they didnt count on Mel's fans and friends standing by him..I think the DA hasnt got a clue as to what to do now...sorry this is LA after all, their court systems are laughable. Poor Mel, I think the only thing they will do now is not charge either one of them.I think if that happens there should be a public out cry, as Oksana is guilty, and they know it. Team Mel. I am not writing this to be malicious, its just my opinion...

Waiting a little (a LITTLE) no harm in that just as long as JUSTICE is served:
charge and lock up this revolting gold digger! Then DEPORT her permanently so she will have no oportunity to harm innocent Lucia.

Ok$a text to Mel during "negotiations"

"U treated her as an illegitimate

out of wedlock child.

Delusional bitch!

Agreed fran,

I too have no faith in the LA court system. By Oksana's own doing she made a spectacle of this and has reached alot of people. Many have taken interest due to the story itself, not that they were Mel Gibson fans but seeing the injustice taking place. I too think we as people of this country should start looking into our so called legal system and demand simple justice to preside.

The LA Times had a better article. Apparently, Ox's lawyer played only snippet of the tape for Mel's lawyer. Mel's lawyer's note show that the threat was "public disgrace" no mention of criminal prosecution. Legal litigation for financial gain is not extortion but threatening criminal prosecution or public disgrace is extortion. Remember Ox's e-mail about why she played the tapes and her name was never mentioned? She's responding to Mel's e-mail of accusing her of playing the tapes for many people. He also says that it would ruin them all; he means finanncially. Clearly he wasn't in fear of criminal prosecution but public disgrace which would ruin his career and diminish his earning capacity.

Mel's team consulted a criminal lawyer during mediation who advised that it was extortion but pressing a criminal complaint would make the tapes public anyway and still ruin his career.

It's up to the DA but it looks like the threat was public disgrace to force Mel into a settlement.

Just what does Oksana mean when she says to Mel " WE HEAR YOU " on those tapes. Someone was there coaching her; "WE"..... she sure wasn't alone if she's using plural forms.
