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.

When Mel was young I had the hots for that man, my kids would yell, "Mom, your boyfriend is on". Wow, how the idol has fallen. I would not cross the street to see him or suppost him by watching him in a movie. I can forgive the stuff he rants on about his ex, good god who didn't see that train wreck coming, but the racial slurs are a no go. He needs to grow up or check into the nearest booby hatch.

You tell 'em Mel. And Fire the moron responsible for leaking your outrage at the dumbass who apparently didn't do his job.

So where is the evidence "that Mel ranted about killing Oksana Grigorieva, hating Jews, and praising the guy who killled John Lennon?" This country really needs stronger Libel laws! But, so what if he did? Everyone is entitled to their opinions--F#@K These PC P*&&!@S Mel!

This guy is either a very sick individual. or a piece of Crap, maybe both? If he is so concerned about Oksana, he should have kept it in his pants...

What do you call this bashing of Mel by Jewish folks???
Calling someone anti-semitic is a control tactic. Meanwhile many jewish folks are anti-everyone-else. Whats the name for that? CAn't have it one way.

Good for Mel. And I agree we have all said or done something to be taken out of context. The media and society love to build people up only to tear them down. He who is without sin cast the first stone.
