Mel Gibson’s girlfriend kept quiet for months after taping the conversations

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: You have to hand it to Oksana Grigorieva. She played Mel Gibson as if she were Itzhak Perlman on the violin.

Of course, Perlman is Jewish, so Mel wouldn’t like that.

But Oksana’s daily release of Mel’s horrid tapes has pretty much destroyed him. And though he deserves it, not all is what it seems.

For one thing, these taped conversations supposedly took place on January 6, 2010. And yet, there’s Oksana walking the red carpet with Gibson 20 days later for the premiere of “Edge of Darkness.” If she hated him so much, why did she go? Was he pointing a gun to her head? (Maybe, considering the tapes.) The picture accompanying this article was taken that night. You’d think someone who’d been threatened with a gun, hit in the face, had her teeth knocked, child threatened, been called vile names, wouldn’t have put on a gown three weeks later and done a red carpet.

And then again: Oksana accompanied Mel to Eric Mika’s Hollywood Reporter party two nights before the Oscars. That was on March 5th, two months after Oksana made her tapes. Of course, she and Gibson arrived looking like hell. The pictures from the party don’t do justice to their appearance–as if they’d just awakened after being on a bender. THR’s Elizabeth Guider and I were standing just a few feet from them when this weird couple arrived. They couldn’t have looked worse. But they were together.

    i think that all of this is all over rated, and mel is under going not only pressures with his x-girlfriend and his little girl. but hes tackling social pressures too…i belief that mel has made some mistakes and i belief this is one of them. but nothing different to what you would hear within the average citzen. i believe that the russian x-girl is knowingly committing tape recordings to make mel look a monster. and you can hear in her voice that she has not bitten back in rage after what he had said from the tape recordings. i think its not human of her to sit back and take that, its not possible to be in such control unless she has some kind of benafit…i believe that she is just trying to make the poor guy look like a monster…and looks like shes got the upper advantage…my advice to mel is to keep cool. and record everything that is said between one another. and a witness by his side and hers. so aggresive cross fire is avoided at all times… you can see that someone like mel gibson could be a victim for any type of slander. give the guy a chance to fight his battle. get the facts before committing him… HE IS INNOCENT, UNLESS HE´S PROVEN GUILTY.. GET BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY 1ST.

    YOU NOTICE THAT WHEN THE GUY IS WHITE THE CHICK WILL BE JUDGED.

    If Mel was black she would be the perfect angle and Mel Gibson would already be in jail and the media would be calling him the next O.J. like they did Tiger.When Ben Roethlisberger raped that chick they said she was a drunk hoe.(so she had no credibility)

    WHEN IT’S A BLACK GUY THE LADY IS A SAINT AND HE IS THE DEVIL. WHEN PUT NEXT TO A WHITE MAN THAT BITCH AIN’T SHIT AND NEVER WILL BE SHIT. Do you feel me!!
