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!

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.

Most A-list and some D-list probably yell and say things that would shock most people. Some actors think they are better then others not just Mel, I thnk we allow the media to tell us what they feel is a racist rant. The story sells or catches your attention faster if it is about race then someone letting off steam. Saying a word or a racial slur once ina while does not make you a racist, we would all be racist, blacks, whites Asians, Latino, middle east, we would all be racist. Actions make you racist, not by saying a word, unless you preach and teach others to hate. But just saying the "N" words, "J", "S", "W", "C", or any other word you can think of. Are you a racist for thinking that word?

I did not hear anything anti-Semitic on the tape. The guy was fired and said he said those things to get back at Mel.

Wow, sounds like blackmail to me. I bet if Mel Gibson agreed to pay this guy off, this would go away.As if people don't say things in anger sometimes? He is human and I think he's right about his baby's mama, even though he brought it on himself when he chose to become involved with her. It is clear that she does have a history of having babies with famous rich men for the $$$

What goes on in the privacy of one's home should stay in one's home. Unless he is hurting someone then report it to the police. Don't sell it to these trashy people who seek audiences. It's none of our business. None of us are perfect.

He sounds like a royal jerk, pain in the neck and someone you don't want to be around. However, where is the evidence of anti-semetic remarks, his hating jews, desire/intent to kill his ex and/or his praise of John Lennon's killer? Maybe it is on the second tape that Ezer-no talent plans to release. Perhaps Ezer-can't write for Sh@t could put the rant in one of his new treatments (aka - one or two page feces laden upchucks that for some reason garner great paydays) or full scripts (aka - well you've seen the movies with his name on it so there you go); Not a big fan of MG (except sometimes at the movies) but I'm not hearing anything other than a loud mouth shooting off at some people who were obviously willing to take it for either a paycheck or nice trip to Costa Rica - unless of course they immediately said thank you for the trip Mr. Gibson but due to your actions we will now be leaving (which I highly doubt they did. Is this just another publicity stunt????? Hmmmmm....that's not something that has been done before, is it? No, of course not.

I love MEL gIBSON. HE HAS PRODUCED AND ACTED IN GREAT MOVIES. I really liked little known "We were soldiers", Apocalypto, mad max, Pasion of the Christ, lethal Weapon everything. I guess passion offended a lot of jews and they run evry studio in Hollywood moviemaking. They had a plant steal a script from the production so they could lambast him before the movie was made. Sorry my jewish bretheren, he is a Christian. You may not like your role in the story by get over it. Ezterhas was probably a plant to fu.. up the production of macabees. I huess if a Christian can't do a movie about jews then jews can't be involved in movies about non jews, right? Love ya mel. Give them hell esp your ex wife whi is a cun.

At 60 yrs. old I can remember when "TV" was new,"Rock & Roll" was new and,of course,"The American Bandstand" was new. So with the passing of Dick Clark I have to come to terms with the reality that all I can do is "remember" Dick Clark from now on. It's a fond memory for sure. May he rest and rock & roll in peace with my deepest gratitude.
