Oksana Probably Won't Use Tapes Against Mel

5/12/2011 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The secret tapes that made Mel Gibson really famous in a bad way are about to become irrelevant.

0311_Mel_Oksana_TMZ_bn_8

Oksana Grigorieva's lawyer, Dan Horowitz, told the judge in the custody case this AM that he may not even introduce the racial and other tirades into evidence. 

It's not shocking that Horowitz is backing off the tapes.  A few weeks ago he told the judge Oksana would not be raising the domestic violence issue in the case.

The tapes could surface if Oksana files a civil lawsuit against Mel, but it's starting to look iffy at best that such a case would even be filed.  Oksana's damages would be limited, even if she won, so it may not be financially worth the trouble.

Interesting theory.....the "new girlfriend" surfaces and NOW OG's lawyer says they may not reference the tapes.....Me thinks someone (OG) is now backing off cuz of the Dani factor.

Is she trying to be Mrs Nice Girl?

Oksana's lawyers are asking a judge to disqualify the actor's attorney on Thursday.

Her lawyers say Gibson's attorney met with Oksana Grigorieva back in 2008 and discussed representing her.

A Los Angeles judge agreed to temporarily halt the case so Grigorieva's attorneys can appeal a ruling allowing Gibson's attorneys to remain on the case.
Grigorieva asked to disqualify them because she had consulted with a partner of one of the actor-director's family law attorneys.

@ AZLEE - I have a feeling that MG has "threatened" to destroy her. A week ago she drops the DV issue and now DH is saying they may not intro the tapes........someone seems to be getting what's due.

Thoughts?

I think she is just putting some different stuff in a trap. They didn't like cheese so she will use peanut butter. She did both of these things like she is being kind but the fact that she is trying to get an attorney removed from mel's side means that she is sneaking something in here.

hmmmm

and for which case is she going after this lawyer?
