The extremely messy split between Oksana Griogrieva and Braveheart actor Mel Gibson has become even more sordid. TMZ is reporting that Gibson believes Grigorieva leaked the series of tapes, after attempting to extort upward of $10 Million from him for her silence.
Gibson is reportedly meeting with the LA Sheriff’s Department in hopes of launching a criminal investigation against Grigorieva.
Grigorieva also claims to have photo evidence that Gibson struck the ex-couples’ daughter Lucia during the January altercation, and RadarOnline is reporting that Child Services is set to meet with Gibson next week. At this point he is still allowed to see his daughter as per the original custody agreement.
An interesting twist in the situation comes in from Gibson’s ex-wife, with whom he spent 28-years, and has 7 children with, Robyn.
Robyn has come forward and provided a “sworn declaration” on behalf of Gibson, saying, “Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage. Mel was a wonderful and loving father.”
