Mel Gibson’s press agent instructed not to do anything

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Mel Gibson’s situation is just getting worse and worse.
I am told that his faithful (and very nice) press agent, Alan Nierob, of Rogers and Cowan, has been instructed by Gibson’s lawyers not to do anything. Period. His hands are tied. So Nierob, who’s done yeoman service fighting back for Mel in the past, is stuck on the sidelines. He can only watch as more and more awful tapes are released.

And the tapes, which are heard on Radaronline.com and YouTube, are bad. Even if girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva planned them, and she’s the golddigger everyone thinks she is, it doesn’t matter. Her project to destroy Gibson has worked.

There will never be an interview he does in the future when someone doesn’t ask him about all this. No amount of mea culpas and “I was drunk” or whatever will work. And looking at the pr interviews Gibson did for “Edge of Darkness” this past winter, it’s a lose-lose situation. Gibson attacked reporters who asked about his DUI and anti-Semitic comments.
