Mel Gibson

Accused of Pastry Meltdown!

9/21/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson
allegedly tried to run over a man outside a Costa Rican bakery ... but at least one eyewitness tells TMZ the man's a liar.

Quick backstory -- Nader Sharif sued Mel, claiming the actor swindled him out of $200,000 by cajoling him into investing in a recyclable rubber company.

Sharif filed a lawsuit in June, but he's filing new documents today, in which he claims Mel tried to mow him down in July, after the two ran into each other at a Costa Rican bakery.

Sharif says Mel got violent, calling him "vile and offensive names" and threatening him with physical harm if he didn't skip town.

Sharif alleges Mel stormed out of the bakery and got into his car. Sharif  says he left the premises moments later, and Mel "accelerated the car to a high rate of speed" and drove the car directly at him while multitasking by giving him the finger!  Sharif says he jumped out of the way... narrowly escaping his fate as Costa Rican roadkill.

But a witness tells TMZ it's all hogwash.  He says Mel was trying to enjoy a "sweet pastry" and a cup of coffee, when Sharif walked in the bakery and tried to confront him. He claims Mel asked Sharif to leave, to no avail.  The witness says Mel left ... Sharif followed. The witness says at no time did Mel drive toward Sharif.  And he says there are at least 7 other witnesses who will tell the same story.

If only Oksana was there to record the incident.

THE TRUTH ABOUT MEL GIBSON
The biggest problem is the quality of the press we have today. Is obvious that editors and journalists who know Mel Gibson. They know that Mel is not anti-Semitic, they know that Mel is not racist, they know that Mel is not the big monster they want to do.

But what is the real interest of the press today? The press speaks the truth? Or is just to make a profit? Even if that profit causes the death of one or more people? This is serious, my friends. The press today
is not honest, is not clean.

The press made ​​so many achievements in the world and helped so much humanity, now becomes a mercenary activity. The press destroys the life of any person in exchange for some money. Without scruples, without any shame, without any human feeling.

Mel Gibson has been married 28 years, today most people are not married 5 years. Mel Gibson has earned everything he has with honest work. Mel Gibson gave an honorable life for his children. Mel Gibson is not perfect, but he was always a hard worker and honest.

What Mel Gibson said about Jews was at a time in which he was drunk. This could not be taken into account for 4 reasons: 1) All people talk nonsense when they are drunk, and most people drink. 2) Nobody is perfect and nobody has the right to judge him or judge anyone else. 3) There are more serious and urgent things on earth for the press attention. 4) The Jews are wonderful, but they are no better and no worse than any other people.

The big problem with Mel Gibson, in my view, was he had a relationship with a woman of questionable goals. No woman who is thinking of building a serious and honest family, would be recording conversations of boyfriend, for money later. This relationship was the reason for so much misery in this man's life.

But the press, even knowing the truth, is not interested in truth. The press sells persons as stores selling products. The press puts the persons to the lions. The press does anything for money.

Unfortunately many people need the press to fight for them, but the social press that looked abandoned persons, this press is dead.

The great comfort is: all mediocre journalists who destroy the image of Mel Gibson will never be clean and honest as Mel Gibson, they will never be the excellent professional and sensitive man who Mel Gibson is.

Wow, team anti-semite was supporting Carla and MyMel, until they realized that the comments were coming from a computer, not unlike themselves, a machine hell bent with an agenda, ignoring all logic, intellect and reason!

Ira,

Off topic. 1 day ago

I watched the"Person of Interest" on .com and that looks like it will be really good. Caviezel is a really good actor and it is good he has finally found work. I guess it has been hard for him to get work since he was in The Passion. That is a shame. But Mel warned him that he may never work in Hollyweird again if he accepted the role. But I will sure watch the series. I thought it was good.

Really this disgusts!!!, in the whole meaning of the word. until when they must mutilate people that give the best in them in their country, and at world level?.... brilliant, successful people, with great fortune in money, if, certain is. But also with a high human level willing to give of if the best thing that one can. We cannot continue allowing this violation type against these celebrities. In a same way they have destroyed him their sentimental life, for the money and a great mountain of "he/she envies" that regrettably have him for their achievements. To who he would like that they violated their privacy and did they publi*****?, do you have the answers, but the worst thing of this I articulate they Know that it is? To publish this lie!!!. We love to this and other many but actors. Let us be honest. THANK YOU:

Mel probably did swindle him out of his money but probably wasn't trying to kill him. Why Nader would trust him with his money to begin with is baffling though ...
