Mel to Oksana:

Sue Me, I'll Sue You!

3/13/2011 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson will sue Oksana Grigorieva for extortion if she dares sue him ... this according to sources close to Gibson.

As TMZ first reported, Oksana still plans to file a lawsuit against Mel, alleging battery, emotional distress and defamation.

But sources close to Gibson tell us he will wage legal war if Oksana files -- and will NOT settle out of court. In fact, we're told Mel will gladly file his own lawsuit against the woman he says put a $15 million price tag on the tapes in return for keeping them secret.

Looks like this battle has just begun.

Well I'm glad Mel is protecting his children you know like the no contest plea hahaahah what a f**king joke this peice of s**t so called man is.

Fine let him sue her it will make no difference cause she and her lawyers will destroy him in court and they will draw it out as long as possible and every single second of media coverage they can get,They will.

What's left of his image is basically nothing and infact this contradiction about the no contest plea and protecting his family yet he's willing to go through the same damage in a civil suit he would have gone through with the criminal one is staggering and destroyed what he had left of his image as an honest man.

The dumb pos is sinking himself down the river hahaha good this is what he deserves.

Mel is just publicly positioning himself for when he ends up settling.

Mel will settle for paying her an amount not too much higher than $!5 million, probably under $30 million.

If Mel settles, it will be only enough to pay her lawyers and publicists, plus a small monthly allowance he can cut off is she misbehaves.

And just for the record don't worry about Oksana needing money to continue a civil trial as I stated before she'll be well taken care of will a constant flow of cash from all the media outlets she'll be on talking about what a pos Mel is and the things we don't know about that he's done to her.

I don't blame this woman I hope she bury's him so f**king far underground that it's not even funny.

He vile and doesn't deserve to exist.

Did anyone ever figure out how she planned to sue for "emotional distress"?

she wouldn't have a case. The jury would laugh at her. It has to be intentional emotional distress, which is difficult to prove. However, if Mel chose to sue for this, he would probably win, considering he's a public figure and the tapes were leaked, her media onslaught, etc.

I'm sure a jury would see her intent very quickly, including the fact that that on the recordings she said she was going to make him. If the tapes are admitted.

Post 102 should read "she was going to make him Pay". Typo.

Another correction. Post 102 should read "intentional infliction of emotional distress".

Mel has zero intention of going to court.

He had his people state this as a bluff position from which to negotiate.

He already offered her $15 million before, and will easily settle for an amount not too much higher than that.

I correctly predicted months ago that Mel would be sentenced to community service but no jail, and that Oksana would not be charged.

Now I am correctly predicting that he will settle for an amount over $15 million but probably under $30 million.

The rest of you are just engaging in your usual wishful thinking.

@Anne2 - Perhaps the likes of Miss Grigorieva should also learn to keep their legs closed?

Mr. Gibson is no angel and has never pretended to be one. Miss Grigorieva, on the other hand, has tried very hard to play the helpless victim card.

Both adults in this charade have behaved inappropriately. It simply appears she has milked situations she masterminded for a buck.

What any of this has to do with the Taliban, is beyond any intelligent person's thinking processes.

Taliban zealots have murdered and continue to do so. If you are unaware, we are a nation at war. Your choice to make a mockery of this speaks more to your lunacy than anything people have posted here.

Yes, she was really gloating when she said that "Boy, you gonna pay" crap. She also texted something at one time, I think, that said something to the effect of "imagine if the tapes got out."


I've got to look for that.
