Report: Mel Gibson hurls the N-word and more in rants taped by Oksana Grigorieva [Updated]

Mel-spike-split In the fourth season of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," the Spike character gets a microchip implanted in his brain -- a chip that causes him excruciating pain if he attempts to unleash his inner vampire self and, you know, bite people and kill them.

Such a chip would come in handy for Mel Gibson these days, if it would get him to keep his mouth shut when he unleashes his inner self. Because excruciating pain definitely seems to follow.

In tapes allegedly submitted under seal to the judge in Gibson's custody fight with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva -- reviewed by Radar Online and TMZ -- the actor reportedly rages at his baby mama, calling her names that you simply don't call a lady, and slinging the N-word in the course of predicting bodily harm headed her way.

Among the milder insults: "You're an embarrassment to me," and "You look like a ... pig in heat."

Oy vey.

What the two were arguing about is unclear from the tapes, Radar says, but now ...

... the restraining order Mel filed recently to prevent Oksana from, as TMZ said, releasing "certain information" makes a lot more sense. A Team Oksana source told Radar that Grigorieva started taping Gibson after threats were made.

[Updated, 3:50 p.m.: Gibson rep Alan Nierob said in an e-mail to The Times, reported by Patrick Goldstein at the Big Picture, that he had not yet confirmed the report's accuracy "due to legal matters."]

I dont think he can recover from this one. A lot of people are still angry at him over his last rant and it took years for most to even tolerate him, much less forgive. This time it shows he has not learned anything, and although may have thought that his previous 'antics' might be dismissed as senselessness of fame, drink etc, now however the nature of his rant is such that no one will doubted that they were defects of his character and not due to his vices, whatever they may be.

He used to be so good-looking and seemed so charming and polite.

Now, he just looks and acts like a total maniac. Anyone remember "Simon Bar Sinister" from Underdog? That's who Gibson now reminds me of.

I don't think I could ever stomach seeing another movie with Gibson involved in any way.

Oh geez,

No one's even heard these alleged tapes. They're allegations by his bitter exwife who hates him. Calm down, America.

if mel gibson was a rapper/singer nobody would give a darn.i guess he needs to act like he is singing instead of yelling

I guess it's not only jeweish people he dislikes. Good going Mel.!

Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. Mel..like much of hollywierd..still wading in the shallow end of the gene pool.

Is anyone really surprised. Australia was founded by the British as a penal colony - where they sent their undesirables/criminals, etc. They are such a low class people whenever I hear their accents I want to take a hot shower

Well, if there are audio tapes, it's just a matter of time until they become public. Until then, it's only hearsay. If the tapes are real, obviously it's Oksana's wish to embarrass Mel, or she would never have recorded him in the first place.
What does that say about her?

There's 2 sides to every story.

And how many of you do-gooders have NEVER said anything in anger that you wished you could retract - or that you didn't really feel? Please.
Put your wings and halos away people.

Wow how judgmental you all are. You must all have your heads in the sand or live on pedestals.

Jesus, leave Mel Gibson alone already,,it's words and perhaps a bad chice but that is emotions we all have,,haven't you people ever said thingsu regret? I'm sure something had to have been said to provoke Mel into this!!!!!

To tbyfrd: Your sarcasm is not lost on your comment, the anger that you suppress on a daily basis, regarding minorities is readily apparent. Your ingnorance says less about you than it does about the people that actually raised you.

To Yoyomam: You are a classic closet racist that is still in denial. If such tapes didn't exist, Mel Gibson would be on every television station that would give him airtime, discrediting these remarks.

Oh geez,

No one's even heard these alleged tapes. They're allegations by his bitter exwife who hates him. Calm down, America.

He was never even married to her - do your research! Why should the US or indeed the world 'calm down'? He's a racist, sexist and to cap it all, as he's smacked Oksana in the face, causing her to lose some teeth, he's a violent man as well. He deserves to lose everything this time round.

You realise Mel isn't Australian don't you? He was born in Peekskill NY!! Yet another poster who needs to do some research. Can't blame us Brits for this one hun!

Difference is, most people don't use emotive racist and sexist language when they're angry. Provocation's no excuse at all, and it's not as if it's the first time.

Wow. I bet when Mel married Oksana, he wasn't aware he was also marrying "Team Oksana". Whatever happened to a marriage being between two people, and if that marriage didn't work, either party was perfectly entitled and free to leave? Marriage seems to have become like so many other things today, a license to perpetual entitlement.

If Mel is a pig, so be it. Oksana's rights should end with her choice to simply be free of him. Recording or revealing those recordings for any other purpose, when there seems to be absolutely nothing preventing her from leaving him otherwise is nothing more than a form of extortion. Were he not so wealthy, would there be all this Sturm und Drang? Of course not. She never would have married him in the first place.

Allow both to reap what they sow, strike with a bolt of lightning the parasites and paparazzi who stalk them claiming, "I just want to know..." (as if they have a right to "know" anything), and let the matter be over and done. Oksana can once again slip back into obscurity (perhaps working for the SVR) and Mel can return to making films and acting that people will stop seeing the moment they decide he's not worth their entertainment dollar. For all the "outrage", feigned or otherwise, that doesn't seem to have yet happened.
