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.

0311_Mel_Oksana_TMZ_EX_5
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.

Watch the part after they get the tickets and head towards the theater. At the ticket taker stand, Mr. Jimmy ducks back out of the way, looking not at all happy, and lets Miss Oksana walk on by herself.

If he hasn't yet, I'm sure he will when they start popping up everything he and Miss Oksana go anywhere.

Mr. Jimmy has been around LA long enough to know the pap hotspots and how to avoid them.

He is an awful human being. He is a racist who hits women. Why would anyone take up for him? It is in your face what kind of man he is.

"Mel Gibson will sue Oksana Grigorieva for extortion if she dares sue him."

"Oksana still plans to file a lawsuit against Mel, alleging battery, emotional distress and defamation."
______________________

So, why would Mel sue Okskanka for extortion when it was made clearly for all that the DA would NOT prosecute her for the crime?
On one hand, my two braincells are attempting to process this information but on the other hand, why is Mel threatening to sue her on the same grounds that the DA "claims" that there is either irrefutable evidence or allegedly lack of evidence to support his argument?

How is Oksaloon allowed to file false charges against him? How will she pay for her outrageous attorney fees? Why does she think she will get away with her extortion case?

C'mon! This is shoddy reporting from Levin's crew.

@Lux Interior - I'll try my hand at addressing some of your questions.

Many attorneys will take a civil suit on contingency, meaning if they are successful they receive their fees (a percentage) from the award. That is most likely how Mr. Horowitz and Mr. Garbus will be paid.

The burden of proof is far less in a civil proceeding than in a criminal case. Therefore, Mr. Gibson's evidence against Miss Grigorieva may very well be sufficient. Keep in mind, the LASD believed there was sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Miss Grigorieva. The DA was concerned there might not be enough for a conviction.

If I understand Mr. Gibson's plea on Friday, he has not admitted guilt and can say he is innocent. This could indicate the District Attorney did not find Miss Grigorieva's versions of events believable. Mr. Gibson had admitted slapping her one time. Ts is likely the only reason a charge was brought. She appears not to have been a credible witness.

How this will translate in civil court will be interesting. The only people likely to benefit are the lawyers. She is deeply in debt. It is doubtful any award she might receive will be an amount sufficient to eradicate this debt and provide for her retirement fund in 17 years when child support payments cease.

Mr. Gibson seems to be suggesting in the strongest manner possible that he will bury her in litigation if she elects to maintain the legal wrangling.

Remember, they are still in Family Court. That has not been decided.

I do wonder where her charge of defamation will come from. As an onlooker it appears it is she who has defamed him, not the other way around.

I'm not sure I completely grasp the emotional distress angle either. I'm sure there was some as there always is when couple argue and don't get along. it seems this is simply a means to garner more of a payout if she is successful.

I find it difficult to believe she really wants even more details of their relationship broadcast worldwide. The more that comes out, the worse she looks.

Whatever happened to her desire to reclaim her good name?

Grigorieva is a non-entity. She has spent a lifetime living,off, feeding off. other people, beginning as is normal, with her family. From them, she has transposed herself to a parasitical lifestyle, living off men...and her children. Having heard her musical disability, it most certainly not possible for her to eke a living in her own right.
Mr. Gibson has outwitted Miss Pyrahnna....who is now forced to live off her son and daughter's income.......provided by ...the Fathers. Of course, she is forced, as a by-product of her greed, lack of viable talent....and propensity to live the life that she has not earned based upon her own hard graft or recognizance....as in marketable talent.

Her only recourse will be to garner money in the only way that she seems to know, that does not require work or talent. And in my view, that means she attempt will sue, Mr Gibson and extricate whatever benjamins that she can..or find another vulnerable rich man to bamboozle. Either way, it reflects an ugly character....
She will, however, continue to live, using her children's.and Mel Gibson's largesse.

She will not concern herself with the shame of it...she has no shame...She has lived far too long off the backs of men..and her children.....

@ Curious, our Luminant Queen --

Sharpening my sword and have my tinfoil hat ready. How about owls as our raptor of choice?

About continuing allegations against baby -- I was looking at the Uniform Parental Rights Enforcement model act and there are stiff penalties for false accusations, automatic loss of custody. The piano player is skating very close (as always) to the line.

Remember the 'blood all over' stuff from one of her interviews?

Tee hee

Hi guys

If there was blood all over the clothes Ox would have kept them for DNA testing..
I mean seriously in the middle of a "nuclear fight" no sleep and baby crying, she sits down and composes an email to her Lower explaining she was in terrible danger and had been "threatened with a deadly weapon" - gun, or did the gun get made up later? I cant keep up with her bullsh*t..
She has started her gameplan back then and would have definately used that had Lucia been hurt.
