Judge Skeptical of Mel Gibson Abuse Allegation By Oksana Grigorieva; Injuries Pose Questions

by at . Comments

Did Mel Gibson assault Oksana Grigorieva? Police are investigating that matter, but at least right now, a judge doesn't think he poses a threat to his daughter.

Sources connected with the case say the sworn declaration by Robyn Gibson, Mel's wife of 28 years, was "powerful evidence" in Thursday's court proceedings.

Robyn, who split with Mel right around the time he began dating Oksana, swore under oath Mel never physically abused her or their seven kids in 28 years.

The testimony from Robyn resonated with Judge Scott Gordon, a former prosecutor in the L.A. County D.A.'s Office who specialized in domestic violence.

Believing that a man who commits violence against a woman will do so with everyone he's involved with, Gordon felt Mel posed no danger to his daughter.

Oksana Grigorieva's secret recordings of Mel Gibson losing it on the phone may have tarnished his reputation, but officials are unsure if he abused her physically.

Robyn's defense of the actor, along with inconsistencies suggesting the now-infamous Mel Gibson tapes were somehow altered, kept the status quo in place.

The investigation into Gibson's conduct is ongoing, but for now, the star will retain visitation rights with baby Lucia as well as one overnight a week.

Oksana, who claims he hit her twice, has primary custody.

As for the alleged Oksana Grigorieva abuse photo she says proves he punched her in the face, police aren't sure her story adds up - nor is her dentist.

Dr. Ross Shelden's medical charts, photos and examination raise serious questions about her injuries - he sees no evidence Oksana was hit in the mouth. 

However, he does see evidence of a different scenario

According to TMZ, Dr. Shelden believes Oksana may have been struck in the left temple, which caused her to bite down so hard, one veneer was completely knocked out and another was damaged. The charts show Oksana's teeth were fully intact.

Dr. Shelden observed a bruise on Oksana's left temple, but the photos he took in his office show no such bruising. The doctor's explanation - Oksana was reluctant to have her picture taken and covered up the bruising with hair and makeup.

Oksana told the dentist that Gibson assaulted her.

As for the mouth, Dr. Shelden's charts reflect two bite marks on the inside of the lower lip - no swelling or bruising consistent with a punch to the mouth but perhaps instead, marks consistent with "a chain reaction" after a blow to the temple.

There is nothing in the records indicating whether or not the doctor believes Oksana's wounds may have been self-inflicted, as some have theorized.

Gibson's lawyers deny he ever attacked Oksana.

Mel, were you on drugs or alcohol? Were you depressed? What in God’s name were you thinking? She must have been a hell of a lay! Sometimes it does not pay to think with two heads. Thank goodness you did not marry the lying grubbing opportunist. Protect your child if it is your child. I even question her ability to be a fit mother. Count your blessings and run as far away as you can from her.

I would think if my infant was struck I would seek medical care. She sought cosmetic dental care for herself. I'm sure if her dentist believed she was abuse he would have notified the authorities.Tapes and photos with no one to document their validity scare me. Her actions do not seem to align with her story. I think it is terrible for her to play this out in public and am beginning to wonder who is the abuser!

The fact that he never hit his wife is completely irrelevant. There are many men who see women as either 'Madonnas' or 'Whores', particularly religious men. It's actually been shown by research that married or partnered men who use prostititutes do so because they want to do to a 'whore' what they would never dream of doing to their dear, sweet wives or girlfriends. Time to remove the rose-coloured glasses. Men can treat different women differently according to their warped, retrograde ideas about women. That is not to say that Mel is one of those men. Innocent ultil proven guilty and all that, but judging by the mysoginist bile that spewed out of his mouth in those tapes, it's not looking good.

Mel is no prize and i am hesitant to not believe someone when they say they are abused but this I doubt - she had to be the one taping or know about the tapes -that gives her the advantage of knowing what to say and when- has there been any counts of abuse from his 1st wife - he might of not been a saint but don't believer there was - this just makes it hard of those who really are abused when they pull what seems to be some kind of stunt to get money or custody - the main one i feel sorry for is the baby -right now she need to be taken from both of them

Meanwhile Oksana is believed to be outraged by an accusation made by her dentist that recent images of her ‘battered face’ – the result of Mel’s alleged attack – are not authentic. An analyst has since checked the photos and concluded that Oksana’s swollen lower lip looks like a self-inflicted injury. Why would you always smile and look happy with someone beating you, She is a low life bitch.

Proportion. Just because he hates the woman doesn't mean that he abuses his child. Women stop using your children in fights with your men. There's a reason Oksana has no creditblility with the court. She signed a generous settlement agreement with Mel Gibson and then retained new lawyers and sought a restraining order. She didn't tell the judge about the settlement agreement. Judges don't like to be deceived and hold it against the person. So now Oksana has to prove beyond any doubt her allegations before the judge will give credence to anything she says.

Mel, you could have done better. She isn't even pretty.

That judge should be removed from the bench. Judges need to take domestic violence seriously.
