Mel Gibson Audio

Explosive Costa Rican Rant

4/19/2012 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Mel Gibson is caught on tape exploding in a rage during a trip to Costa Rica last December, screaming at the top of his lungs ... and now the audio has been released.

The Wrap obtained the tape from Joe Eszterhas -- the man who wrote the screenplay for "The Maccabees" with Mel. Eszterhas has made shocking allegations that Mel ranted about killing Oksana Grigorieva, hating Jews, and praising the guy who killled John Lennon.

Eszterhas's son Nick recorded one of Mel's outbursts ... which starts with Mel blasting Joe, "Why don't I have a first draft of "The Maccabees?" What the f**k have you been doing?"

Mel goes on, turning his anger at Oksana: "I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me." 

Mel can then be heard slamming objects in the house, and then continues screaming, "Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!"

JENNIFER LOPEZ

Wears Her Sexiest Dress

On "American Idol"


0419_welcome_jlo_launch
The top 7 "American Idol" finalists performed last night, but it was Jennifer Lopez who stole the show.

The 42-year-old judge wore a sexy Herve Leger dress during the show -- her most revealing look this season! The body-hugging bandage dress had cutouts in the middle, showing off J.Lo's ripped abs. Fortunately, flesh-colored lining guarded against any wardrobe malfunctions, but it certainly gave the impression Jennifer was nude underneath.

J.Lo's been bringing the fashion this season, wearing designers like Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana. Check out all her sexiest styles this season!

Zac Efron
is know for his lean muscular physique.

The 5'8" heartthrob usually weighs in around 145 pounds, but he gained over 18 pounds to play a Marine in the upcoming film "The Lucky One."

To put on the weight, Zac was put on a 3,500 calorie a day diet and underwent months of intense training, including working out five days a week (with lots of powerlifting) and drills in a full Marine kit.

Hoorah!

LAUREN CONRAD

Beverly Hills …

That's Where I Want to Be


Lauren Conrad had a new condo
Former MTV star Lauren Conrad is back on "The Hills" -- Beverly Hills -- because she just dropped $1.35 million on a swanky new condo in the wealthy L.A. neighborhood.

The ex-reality star will be the newest resident of the 90210 -- recently purchasing the massive 3,200 sq. ft. 2-story, penthouse condo with 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, and a 24-hr security system ... to keep away all those crazy "Hills" fans.

The house also sports a rooftop pool, outdoor deck, full gym, indoor bar, marble bath and hardwood floors.

But all this doesn't come cheap -- Conrad has to shell out $2,319 in homeowners' fees alone ... and then pay her million dollar mortgage on top of that. Oh, and this is her 2nd house -- the other one is in Malibu.

All hail LC.

One of the Gibson girls is severely off the wall. Mel Gibson thinks he is the Lord's gift to mankind. He is a hater and should be ostracized. He thinks what he does can only be done by him. His kind are a dime a dozen.

I will forever ignore any and all of the bad images that are and that have been made of Mel Gibson. And that is because, not one of those past or any of the future negative images to be painted of Mal Gibson, was or will be made of ANYTHING this man did in PUBLIC. Whatever it is that WE all do, say, wear,eat,believe in, disagree with, or agree with, is our own business so long as it's done(for the most part anyway)in the privacy of our own homes, with our own families around, our own friends around, our private working partners and associates, etc.. I and so many others in this world, would not be able to conduct our lives in any normal way at all, if we had even 1/4 of the things that we say or have said in anger, in humor, in RANTS, in anguish, in intoxication, etc..., if there was someone(s) there to record or make public--any of those things. And that is how every single thing that has ever come out about Mel Gibson was obtained. Just Imagine having to 'walk on eggshells' and be extra careful of every single word that you said, 24 hours a day every day of your life.Even in his own house! Even the police car rant was something that happened while only he, Mel Gibson, and the police officer, were in that car. I'm actually very happy NOT TO BE RICH AND FAMOUS.I've never been an anti-semite or anything, but a lot of the things I've said when angry, a little 'buzzed', or even in jest, would probably have gotten me in quite a bit of 'hot water' had everyone on the planet heard or read about it. Just my 3 cents.

Mel Gibson is acting like a brat. Who in their right mind would want to listen to this disgusting tirade, day in and day out? He has a mental problem, so why didn't he see a mental specialist to help pinpoint the reason for his endless outburst? Mel Gibson eventually will get himself into so much trouble if he doesn't try to control his selfish attitude. He is behaving like a child, a bully and an arrogant human being who doesn't have a care in a world for respecting others. As long he continues to make a decline toward immaturity, people will tend to lose their faith and trust in him.

Gibson has something wrong goin on in his brain.
We will hear something really bad before long !
JLO is a sad thing.... Her little boy will milk her ....and when he's had enough of her and all the material things she's giving him to stay in her bed.... He will leave for sure. ha ha
She will deserve it too !
Seems like she is scared to be without a male in her life.. I don't think she can sing well, or dance well either.... But I will say she can wear clothing well .

It has little to do with ageing and a lot to do with ego.

What is with these aging men? Mel left his beautiful wife and 7 children for a russian tramp who was looking for citizenship and great divorce settlement. Along the way they managed to create a child. Looks to me that the karma bus has parked in Mel's driveway and isn't planning on moving soon. I'm sure Robin has felt some sweet revenge at all this. Braveheart he is not.

Joe Eszterhas has had less publicity than Gibson, but he's a worthless parasite, a one-hit wonder has-been. He obviously made the tape to cover his ass because he didn't deliver on a screenplay he was supposed to have finished 2 years ago, knowing full well that there is a strong cadre of Mel haters out there who will jump at the chance to once again have an excuse to hate Gibson. As for the Russian whore, well, she IS a whore and Gibson made the mistake of being conned by her. Sorry, people, I'm not going to join your hatefest.
