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.

@FN Not at all! I hear ya.. I would advise him to avoid her like the plague but since I don't talk to him and he probably wouldn't listen anyway even if I got the chance I'm just going to sit back and have fun enjoying the idea of Ox melting down from jealousy. Know what I mean!?

I think the other lady closer to his age that there are rumors about is more serious and it's completely kosher, as it were. I really don't think there is anything to worry about (yet LOL)

Swedish Tabloids are all reporting the story
about Miss Sweden and Mel from Drais April 27...

"She looks like a YOUNGER, SLIMMER VERSION
of his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva."

Dani Karlsson:
"I have no comment.
And do not want to talk about it"
When ashed if she can refute it
she replied "Nope"

but she blogged/twitted about it!

Fame whore and a hustler!

Gotta say, with the new developments here in the last week or 2, I can only imagine just how hard OG is kickin' herself in the ass for tossin' that 15million dollar deal in the trash....I bet she'd give her left lung for that option right now. Had I had a chance to get 15mill, I wudda grabbed that check and ran like hell to the bank!

Sorry to say it OG - looks like you grossly under estimated your "lowers" ability to squeeze MG dry...Tiger Woods money my ass!

To Fidel's niece;

Read your latest post and I have a question; How do you know all this, and where are your facts? You are alleging that Oksana got the recording equipment ready in December 2009 for a fight that took place in Feb 2010. How do you know for a fact that she planned this? How is that you know her "frame of mind" in Dec 2009? It seems to me that unless you were actually living with this woman, and witnessed all that took place in the first person, then you don't know anything more than what the gossip rags have printed.

About the same thing.

The problem with a negotiated agreement is that she doesn't tend to adhere to them. Maybe this time...

@Fidel's Niece OMG they don't want that 2008 date out there. It is GONE. You are one sharp cookie! The ABC article was NOT a typo. It was removed intentionally, I am sure, because giving the 2008 date proves that Ox was going to open a case against Timothy Dalton, 99% chance it was for DV like she has done to Mel!

I think this should be brought out and not forgotten. She's playing with fire once again. Someone needs to warn Dalton she was likely going to do this and appears to be going public with it! ANYTHING to get at Mel and delay this case.

PEOPLE,
you are MISSING something here!

O$kanky met with Kolodny's partner in 2 0 0 8 ???

Why did she need a family lawyer in 2008?
Lucia was not even conceived until March 2009!

Was she going to sue Dalton for more
child support for their son?


ABC news also reports 2008!

Thank you to Moussemaker for busting Ox and her minion:

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.

http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news/entertainment&id=8127197 (2008 date now missing!)

Of course the "tapes" cannot be used. There are too many pausations, irregular speech speeds, too many volume changes and inconsistent conversations all pointing to edited, altered and tampered evidence as well as potential prosecution for it.
A grifter never changes.

It's increasingly difficult to locate articles with the 2008 date. They seem to have been pulled.

Even without the year included, this quote "She based the disqualification request on the fact that she had consulted and met with one of Kolodny's partners before the current case was filed." indicates the alleged meeting occurred prior to the current case. http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/entertainment/a/-/entertainment/9404543/gibson-rants-might-not-be-used-in-case

It will be interesting to see if the appellate division even hears this. She has been playing her legal musical chairs for many months. Only now this issue surfaces? It is questionable at best.

As others have mentioned, Judge Gordon does seem to have had about enough of her shenani gans.
