Third alleged Mel Gibson tape goes public [poll]
A third tape allegedly of Mel Gibson talking on the phone to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva was made public Tuesday courtesy of Radar Online, providing us with the plot points for today's episode of "The Rantings of an Angry Man."
No threats of violence in this one -- rather, there are threats to fire a household employee if she dares to work in the home of the lady rather than the gentleman. And yes, there's a different racial slur in this tape, referring to that employee.
"I will fire her and I will do it fast," the male voice says.
Through the bulk of the six minutes, the two argue about money and the woman's music career, with him saying all the money she has is his money, and her saying she has nothing and isn't a gold digger.
"You've made me moneyless," she says. "I used to have $100,000 a year when you met me. You took me, you possessed me, everything I am you [unclear: owe or own] me with my liver and my kidneys and my thoughts and my soul, everything, and my career, whatever it is, pathetic career, whatever it is, is yours. You control me like marionette. I don't belong to myself, only to you. I can't do anything and I walk on eggshells always with you."
The response is succinct: "That's because you're a ... using whore."
She goes on to say she's not any of the things he's calling her -- and it's quite a litany ...
He doesn't buy her argument: "Your logic sucks, because you're a ... mentally deprived idiot."
Signing off from the Ministry, where we're listening to every stinkin' word of these tirades, repeatedly, so you don't have to. (Though if you desire and are a tough-minded adult prepared for over-the-top profanity and anger, click here.)
