Mel Gibson, ex-girlfriend subject of domestic violence investigation

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef01157018d72f970b-320wiThe Los Angeles Sheriff's Department has opened a domestic violence investigation involving actor Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend.

No details about the probe were immediately available, but the Sheriff's Department said in a statement that it is `is currently gathering information regarding the allegations. Due to the investigation being preliminary in nature, no other information is available at this time.

Gibson and his ex-girlfriend have been battling in court over custody of their daughter.

Radar Online reported earlier this month allegations that Gibson used the  N-word during a recorded argument with Oksana Grigorieva.

In an e-mail to The Times, Gibson’s representative Alan Nierob said that he had not yet confirmed the report's accuracy "due to legal matters."

Gibson made headlines three years ago when it was revealed he went on an anti-Semitic rant after being arrested for drunk driving by an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy.

Is there a reason his drunk photo is posted? How lame to pull that one out for such a dumb article. Good one guys. Grown up.

Mel Gibson is just an old punk.

WHY DID SHE WAIT 6-MONTHS BEFORE MAKING THESE ALLEGATIONS PUBLIC? IF SHE WAS "abused" ... WHY didn't she CALL THE COPS when it happened? (Didn't want to INTERRUPT HER GRAVY TRAIN?) This creature is nothing BUT a GOLD-DIGGER. And STOP berating Mel Gibson for saying horrible things in the HEAT OF AN ARGUMENT! We ALL say things in anger when PROVOKED. Things we'd NEVER SAY (or even think) OUT-LOUD. We are all entitled to PRIVACY. She violated the court order by deliberately SEEING TO IT HER FRIENDS gave the tapes to RADAR. She should be JAILED for contempt.
WE ALL say horrible things ... don't be hypocrites! Stop blaming Mel for reacting.

Not the N word...who cares....

I like his films...

Odd how everyone thinks it's bad he used the n word but no one says anything about the misogyny and blaming her for a possible rape being her fault because of the way she's dressed. Everyone knows Mel Gibson has a drinking problem. He needs to get help. His career is ruined. People need to quit making excuses for his bad behavior because feeling sorry for him will not help him with his alcoholism. Why does everyone automatically assume his girlfriend is a gold digger? Who wants to put up with all THAT for the money? Ignorant people!

HOW SAD TO SEE THE LA TIMES AND THE LOS ANGELES POLICE AND THE WORLD OF TRUTH SEEKERS HAVE TO LIE TO COVER UP THAT THEY WANT TO CLAIM THE HATRED NOW TOWARD THIS MAN.
SAME PEOPLE WHO RE-WROTE HISTORY OF THE WORLD FOR US ARE THE SAME MEDIA PERFORMANCE ARTISTS.

FOCUS ON THE MARRIAGE OF CHELSEA , LATER YOU CAN WRITE THAT YOU OWN AMERICA IN MARRIAGES

KETUBA IS THIS
MEL GIBSON IS THE KEY TO THE FAME OF THE WAY ALL OF YOU ARE TRANSPARENT TO ALL OF US
ALL IN EUROPE AND THE WORLD OF ITALY AND THE INTERNATIONAL TRAVELS ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU ALL SET UP PEOPLE

CHRIST RESURRECTION IS THIS

The only people here defending Mel are ignorant people. He is abusive physically and otherwise and is a Neo Nazi like his dad.. And a wetbrain alcoholic on top of it!! She didn't go to the police because he threatened her and her life.. and maybe after being punched a few times in your face and threatened by a guy who has a billion dollars to take your baby away you might want to see if things can be worked out.. there is no working it out with this guy. Good for her she protected herself and recorded him so that people would believe her story. he hit her and admitted that in the tape saying she deserved it. Wake up people .. his wife of many years is estranged from him for a REASON...

She is after his money. I would be upset too.

How a women dresses is NEVER a justification for rape. Rape is assault and battery. It is a crime.

How interesting. She gets her teeth knocked out, there is nothing about a medical report, no police report BUT SHE WAS PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED! What is missing out of this picture, the money or the abuse?

So glad someone is finally revealing Mel's true character. There is supposed to be new information on Mel tonight on the show "Issues." Issues was one of the first to cover this recording with radar. They have something more tonight.

Financial motivation and extortion. Have seen/read this story too many times. Heather Mills and Paul McCartney is another example. Mel was very foolish...
