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!

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.

Mel should just assume that everything he says is recorded and keep his mouth closed! The man has really blown it and should be looking for another career or a hole to crawl into.

haha. you know whats funny is this is a man who may very well have become a mass murderer if it weren't for the fact that he can say i'm rich. Money changes everything. He's lucky, but god is he a horrible person.

The world would hate Mel if he was perfect. So, why not just accept Mel for the ranting buffoon that he is & get on with our own lives. I thought we already knew that Mel has his demons.

Sometimes, I feel the same way Mel does too. But, yelling, shouting, and cursing is only going to make things worse.

I was laughing my head off when I played the clip.

Better get that rubber room ready. What could make a person like Mel, with money, great job hate so much. Maybe he just hates himself.

We all know that Gibson is a sick, angry drunk. He needs to get into a program, but he won't. Do we have to hear more about it? I logged on to say this. If anyone here knows any of his friends, or a friend of his friend, try to get him into a 12 step program or he is going to kill himself. His father, an actual Nazi, did this to him. A real waste of talent.

I don't like to hear any body screaming. Ever. But if he really hates Jews he should spend more time at Auschwitz, Poland, he could really have a good time there. Anti semite is so passe, not to mention just plain stupid, especially in the field he works in.

Sounds like a real nut case but did not hear any racial remarks. I always thought Mel loved the black race. Sounds like real BS. Mel does have real mental problems and is in denial. He needs mental health care. They are saying something is there that is not present. He is angry and rude and should get threatment but no racist remarks only crusing.
