Mel Gibson conniption tapes unloaded to RadarOnline by Grigorieva’s sister?
HollywoodNews.com: Golly gosh, how did the audio tapes of Mel Gibson’s tirade with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva wind up online?
Allegedly, Grigorieva’s sister Natalie is being investigated by authorities for unloading the audio to RadarOnline.com.
Several sources close to the case are confirming to the Hollywood Reporter.
“I suspect that if the authorities look at the sister, they’ll find a wire transfer or a check to her from the website,” a source said. “She and Oksana are very close.”
“All the tabloids said no to the deal because they were asked to purchase the audio tapes before hearing them,” another source said about Natalie’s efforts in shopping the tapes around.
Hollywood Reporter further writes:
If Natalie Grigorieva is found to have brokered the deal at the behest of her sister, it’s possible the judge could find the Russian singer in contempt of court. The elder Grigorieva also could face extortion charges based on a text and e-mails she sent to Gibson.
In the text message, reported exclusively by THR on Wednesday, Oksana Grigorieva wrote Gibson that the reason she recorded him was that “you broke your agreement with me.”
She claimed Thursday that the only reason she balked at signing the long form settlement agreement when it was placed in front of her was that it gave Gibson unsupervised visits with their child.
Yesterday, Grigorieva’s camp claimed that Gibson assaulted the pop singer’s 12-year old son at a party by throwing him on a table.
