Events on the day Mel Gibson lost it
HollywoodNews.com: The day Mel Gibson was recorded going off on Oksana Grigorieva had started out calm enough as the two were coming together for a special ceremony honoring their daughter.
According to TMZ, the former couple was together to plant a Santa Lucia fir tree in their backyard, as well as the placenta from the birth of their daughter. Reportedly planting a child’s placenta is a tradition in some parts of Australia, where Gibson grew up, and he has done this for all of his children.
As this event was taking place, the gardener who was helping them out allegedly made a simple comment to which Grigorieva responded by smiling at him. This reportedly led to Gibson accusing her of sleeping with the gardener, which then led to the many infamous tapes.
