Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has claimed that Gibson was physically abusive towards his first wife also.
Grigorieva also claims that she has seen the actor hitting his youngest son, Tommy.
Quoting a source “familiar with” the law enforcement investigation into Gibson”s behavior, Grigorieva, 40, claims she saw the actor hit Tommy, his youngest child from his first marriage. The incident purportedly occurred two-and-a-half years ago at a hockey game in Los Angeles, according to RadarOnline.com.
“She [Grigorieva] said that Mel, in her presence, hit Tommy, in the head, while they were in a box watching a hockey game…Tommy started crying and whimpered for the remainder of the game, choosing to sit by himself, away from his father,” the New York Post quoted the source as telling the entertainment website.
A Russian newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda , reported that Grigorieva had alleged Gibson told her he had thrown a television at his first wife, Robyn Gibson, during a heated argument.
However, Robyn has previously defended her husband of 28 years, following the release of a series of explosive recorded phone calls between the actor and his ex-girlfriend.
The mother of seven of Gibson’s children denied the “Lethal Weapon” star was ever physically abusive during their marriage.
“Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage,” she wrote in a statement filed in a California court, TMZ reported.
“Mel was a wonderful and loving father,” Robyn added.
Mel Gibson”s ex Oksana Grigorieva has finally opened up about her ongoing, public battle with the actor.
Grigorieva’s battle with Gibson includes the custody fight over daughter Lucia, the harrowing audiotapes and disturbing photos alleging physical abuse.
“I”m devastated. Everybody”s devastated,” Usmagzine.com quoted Grigorieva, 40, as telling Radaronline in her first extended interview since the scandal broke a few weeks ago.
“I think Mel, basically, is trivializing domestic violence.
“It is unfair that by standing up to somebody — and speaking out — I am being victimized all over again. He has hurt so many people,” she added.
She also explained why she taped the shocking, obscenity-laced phone calls and voicemails from Gibson that have stormed the web.
“Because I didn”t think I was going to make it through the night,” she said.
“Everything, by the way, this is really important, all the tapes that you hear on the Internet, all of them were recorded that one night…The tapes, as you call them, the voicemails, everything was recorded that night because I was in fear for my life. I really did not think I was going to make it,” she said.
Oksana Grigorieva”s spokesperson has denied the claim of ‘self-inflicted’ injuries made by Mel Gibson”s camp, claiming that his client is only a victim of a smear campaign.
The spokesperson for the actor’s ex-girlfriend has said that Grigorieva did not indulge in any kind of deliberate self-harm to frame the ‘Braveheart’ star, but was instead physically abused by Gibson.
“While Mr. Gibson”s camp has floated a variety of false claims in the press to try to distract the public from the true facts at hand, it is telling that his camp has not once denied that it is Mr. Gibson”s voice on the published recordings,” TMZ quoted Spokesperson Stephen Jaffe as saying.
“It is common in such cases for those who perpetrate domestic violence to vilify the victim of that domestic violence. One would hope that those who are close to Mr. Gibson would take a more constructive approach,” Jaffe added.
Jaffe lashed at an expert who claimed that there was evidence to show that Grigorieva’s injuries were self-inflicted.
“It is obvious not only from the photograph of Ms. Grigorieva, but from other evidence, including Mr. Gibson”s own admission, that he struck her in the mouth and temple, that she sustained injuries as a result of his blows. The notion that her wounds were ”self-inflicted” is ridiculous and not credible. No legitimate, independent expert photo analyst could reasonably draw such a conclusion. Her injuries are consistent with her account,” another expert familiar with the case said.
Mel Gibson’s girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has praised him for being an ‘incredible’ dad after he spent three days with their new born daughter, Lucia Anne.
Russian singer Grigorieva gave birth to Lucia on October 30 and has since been going gaga about Gibson’s ‘daddy skills’ even though he could only spend three day with his tot due to work commitments.
“Mel”s very hands-on. He was amazing while he was here for a short visit. He has been very doting and nurturing. He is incredible with children, very kind,” Contactmusic quoted Grigorieva, as saying.
She added: “He”s an amazing person and he treats everybody equally. That”s what I know. I know him as a very kind and generous person, embracing his friends and family. He”s tremendous as a dad, unbelievable.
“He”s ecstatic. He is very much in love with her already. She just wins people”s hearts, she”s so beautiful and tiny.”
Gibson, 53, had to leave the filming of his latest flick, The Beaver, as he rushed to the Los Angeles hospital where Grigorieva gave birth to their daughter.
Although he missed the birth, he stayed on with his new family for three days before resuming the shoot on Monday.
Oksana told Hello! mag: “I was at home then I got rushed into hospital and, eight hours later, I could look at her beautiful face. Mel came just a few hours later because he had to fly from New York.”
Gibson is already a father to six sons and a daughter with former wife Robyn, who filed for divorce in April this year to end their 28-year-old marriage after nearly three years of separation.
Grigorieva has a 12-year-old son with actor Timothy Dalton.
