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.

I like to read the AOL news items. This item about Mel Gibson however is ridiculous. It has no credibility being in this group.

I think he needs to find some psychiatric help. Before I was put on a regiment of Meds for Schizophrenia I used to rant often as well. I don't do much of that anymore. Once in a while. Get some help Mel.

Leave Mel alone. If you don't like the way he acts and talks to you, then move on. He did hold a pistol to any one's head. All the parasites around him are there only for what they can get from him. You may chew me out for writing this, but think about it b4 u do. You know I'm right.

Mel Gibson is a talented actor and an awesome producer. The Passion of the Christ was so compelling that many people converted to a more spiritual and moral life. How many in Hollywood have accomplished that. As for the Russian woman, it was obvious that she wanted her fifteen minutes of fame and Mel's money. Mel has had a drinking problem for years and his wild mood swings have probably not been accurately diagnosed as bi-polar. He needs medication, psychotherapy and compassion. I'll see whatever fillm he chooses to made and also pray for his well-being.
Bi-polar disorder can be controlled!!!!!!!!!!

So what if he went off, It is his own business, he had a break down, the guy who taped him should be ashamed, especially if he was considered a friend....BTW I'm sure Mel doesnt like to work just to give his ex some monry, most men dont, but he did this in his own house, noones business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mel Gibson is obviously mentally disturbed. OK, maybe he's a hater, but as long as he does it where nobody is around, let him! He needs to be on some medication. CERTAINLY. He's a good actor, but he's a sad soul.

I think it's a crime to covertly record someone without their knowledge. If I was Gibson I'd sue too especially since it's been released to the public. Doesn't take his booze too well does he? Should've stayed with the old lady.

Just let sleeping dogs rest. I met Mel. Never talked to him, though. T'was on a very cold January morning during the filming of the beach scene of "The Patriot." He was affable, had a boatload of smiles, and said hello to everybody. I say, let him be. And, for those who won't; let them cast the first stone.

Mel, why not crawl on your hands and knees back to your first wife and beg BEG her to take you back. You will stop screaming, your life will go back to some semblance of normalcy. Try it.
