Mel Gibson

Tires of Eco-Lawsuit

Settles Up

2/2/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201_mel_EX_01
Things are rubber ducky for Mel Gibson ... we've learned he just settled a bitter lawsuit over recyclable tires. 

Gibson was sued by a dude who claims -- at the behest of Mel -- he invested his life savings in a company called Green Rubber, which developed technology to devulcanize rubber so old tires could be recycled. 

Nader Sherif claimed Mel promised the guy could sell his stock back to the company at any time and get his money back, and he further claimed Mel promised to personally write him a check if the Green Rubber refused. Yes, you guessed it. Sherif wanted his jack back, the company refused and Mel told him to pound sand.

Sources tell TMZ ... Mel paid Sherif something, but we don't know exactly how much.

2012 is starting out to be a very Goodyear for Mel.

TRANSLATION:
Nadar called TMZ to boast that he settled, but didn’t want to say how little he got.


Wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it was Nadar’s lawyers who made an offer to settle. Mel’s lawyers said OK, probably because that’s what it would have cost anyway to defend the case. I am sure that Mel has bigger and better things to do than this silly lawsuit. All this guy had was basically heresay and the threat of more bad publicity. Exactly like that BS sob story that it was his life’s savings and the even bigger BS story that Mel tried to run him and his muffin over.

GIbby cares. To the extent that he goes way overboard in trying to clean up his messes, which only draws more suspicion. Do you think his Colleagues are impressed with the way he bought that settlement case with Ox? ESP when they all paid fair settlements without all the acrimony? I hope to God she's back with Dalton just to piss him off!
He may wipe his ass with that kind of money but his rep gets flushed down the toilet along with it.

Okay, quick summary from my POV. We have Ox - talentless except in the sack. "Mel hit me and called me too many times on the phone. Then he called me bad names that I recorded on the sound equipment he purchased for me!" Mees, fanny pack wearing loser with gender identity issues, "Mel blamed me for wars!" Nada, "Mel guaranteed my green crap/life savings investment and tried to kill me while I was eating pastry!" I see three losers trying to score a paycheck form a guy that knows how to earn his own paycheck. Losers.

Joe Eszterhaz
the screenwriter working on Maccabees screenplay for Mel)
The New York Times interview Feb.2,2012

1/
about Mel's anger issues
*
Question:
Are you comfortable doing business with him (Mel)?
*
Eszterhaz:
"I'VE SEEN HIM EXPLODE AT GUESTS IN HIS HOUSE.
AND I THINK THAT HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND IS PROBABLY
RIGHT ABOUT ONE THING: HE NEEDS MEDICATION..."
*************************************************
2/
about Mel's church/traditionalist catholicism

"In my mind, HIS CATHOLICISM IS A FIGMENT OF HIS
IMAGINATION."
***
LOL! Joe, the crazy Hungarian is ALSO CATHOLIC,

(He wrote Basic Instinct, some good movies Jagged Edge,
F.I.S.T., Music Box, Betrayed, some truly CRAPY
ones like Showgirls.
I was STUNNED when I heard that he was working
on the Maccabee movie for Mel. Joe was a very
controversial figure in Hollywood in the 1990s and left
Hollywood, now he is back.) go to his IMDb page...

Mel is "rolling the dice" with Eszterhas
*
Joe wrote some huge hits
(Basic Instinct, Flashdance)
and also Showgirls (it made over
100 mill in video sales and was
voted the worst 1995 screenplay)

This Eszterhaz says he has seen Mel explode on some of his guest, but he did not say who they were or why Mel did it. If he or anyone else would give the whole story it could be believed. Until then I do not believe what is said about Mel and his temper.

Mel has a personality
that Forrest Gump would call
"like a box of chocolates,
you never know what you are going to get"

from Observer/Guardian UK interview
The Observer, Sat June 4, 2011

MEL GIBSON: SAINT AND SINNER
(excerpt from the article)
*
"It's Jekyl and Hyde", explains a friend and coleague.
"He can be the nicest guy one day: funny, supportive,kind.
The next, HE CAN BE DARK AND DIFFICULT - it's not a
mood swing exactly, it's more like HE HAS THESE TWO DISTINCT
PERSONALITIES and you are never sure what you are going to get. On a bad day, he can be depressed, almost bipolar,
AND HE CAN LOSE HIS TEMPER. But on a good day, I'm telling
you, there is no greater guy."
*
2 sides of Mel - Dr Jekyl & Mr. Hyde...
