Mel Gibson and Ashley Cusato
Mel Gibson has a brand new lady friend and she's TOUGH AS NAILS ... with a brown belt in karate ... and a serious penchant for danger ... TMZ has learned.

The new woman in Mel's life is Ashley Cusato ... an actress and stuntwoman who's actually been featured as a stunt double for big stars like Emily Deschanel and Denise Richards.

Sources close to the actor tell us ... the two have been dating for about a month -- and things are going so well, Mel has already introduced her to several members of his family.

In fact, sources close to la familia Gibson tell us ... they LOVE her and are convinced she's gonna be around for a long, long time.

Now for some fun facts -- Ashley's training for her black belt in Yoshukai karate ... she's a former NCAA Division I swimmer ... she won "Best Body" in high school.

I'm not sure of the point of the story. I don't see how Mel having a girlfreind is a big deal. Afterr all, most normal men want a woman in their bed, so this really isn't shocking.

Come on she is a fat slob! Look at that roll of flab on her belly and she has a muffin top. She is at least 25 lbs. overweight and is homely to boot. VERY mannish looking:( She will keep him in line I am sure.

HAHAAAA! When you google her all of these Sears Portrait Studio pics appear of her alone that she has plastered all over the Internet. Her claim to fame on IMDB is she TRAINED to be a stunt driver in a JENNIFER ANISTON MOVIE but her scene was cut out when the director was FIRED. LMAO!

*FAME WHORE ALERT!!*.

What happened to the last under achiever he was dating? Does a brown belt trump 'F Me' jeans? You can get a brown belt just for showing up.


Like I've said before - he will never be able to get an accomplished woman with brains to date him, ESP. If she is famous in her own right.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Just an FYI for you haters, aka you 'love to spread the hate' people:

You haters don't know squat if you really think Mel punched the liar (Ox). LEARN about HER background and then come diss Mel if you still think he's guilty..


OR too lazy to go read up on Ox? Admitted: it takes some extensive reading and reading UK and Russian site articles too. BUT you could simply use some LOGIC: compare Rihanna's face to Ox's face after being 'punched' OR how about Robyn Givens Face after being punched? NO comparison. And PLEASE note smirk on Ox's 'SMILING' face.


If Mel was seen out with Minnie Mouse, I'm sure the media would have him dating her. OR seen out with Downey Jr serveral times in a month, then Mel would suddenly 'be gay'.


Here's a bet: 'close family friends' are NOT going to discuss Mel with ANY media outlet.


Here's another bet: when DM runs an article DAYS before TMZ, it is NOT a TMZ 'exclusive'.


THINK, ppl THINK!

Denise Richards is NOT a big star, she was married to one, she, herself is mediocre B list star.

They look like they are having fun. Nice going, Mel. I'm glad your family likes her, too.

I don't understand what the "FUSS" is all about? Mel Gibson has a "VICIOUS POTTY MOUTH" and if getting "BODY SLAMMED" FLOATS HIS BOAT -- SO BE IT!!! He's bound to "OFFEND HER", and more than likely he'll end up "TOOTHLESS"!!! When he decides to "DUMP" this one, perhaps he should send her a "TEXT" or "EMAIL". I doubt if she takes "REJECTION" WELL!!! KEEP ON PLAYING, "PLAYER"!!!
