Just when you thought a day might pass without a secretly recorded Mel Gibson telephone tirade against Oksana Grigorieva leaking online ... another one has.
In the latest of the shocking tapes, which his lawyers are claiming have been edited and tampered with, he rails against the “B!tch c*%t wh*re gold digger!”
While we're used to Gibson using vile language and becoming completely unglued, rant #5 is most notable for his apparent admission of financial problems.
Gasping for air and in between more f-bombs than we can even count, Gibson blames the mother of his eight-month-old daughter for his dire fiscal straits.
“F*ckin’ user! You f*ckin’ used me! I will never forgive you!” he yells, panting as if he just ran a marathon. “You are very mean,” Grigorieva calmly replies.
This further enrages the deeply disturbed actor.
“Yeah, you know what mean is now, don’t you? So don’t call me mean when I’m nice to you. Because I’d like to show you what mean really is," he screams.
Then he really goes off: "B!tch c*%t wh*re gold digger!! All true! You f*%king proved it to me! If you’re ever interested in proving otherwise, let me know."
“Look at yourself. Look what you’ve f*%king done! Look at your son. He’s a f*%king mess. You f*%king excuse for a mother. You’re a f*%king bitch!”
The Mel Gibson tapes make abundantly clear he needs mental help. But he apparently needs financial assistance too, if his latest tirade is any indication.
Mel says he needs cash so badly, he had to part ways with some artwork and - gasp - L.A. Lakers tickets. “I don’t have any f*%king money!" he moans.
It's a stunning claim from one of Hollywood's biggest names, although he did just divorce his wife of 30 years, Robyn. That couldn't have been cheap.
Follow the jump to listen to the fifth Mel Gibson tape ...
Ever since the first rant was leaked last week, a disturbing picture of the actor has been painted. But what remains unclear is the context of these tapes.
Why is he so enraged? Were they all recorded the same day, or in the same general time period? Has Oksana really edited them, as his lawyers allege?
None of this changes that Mel has serious issues, but we feel there must be more to this than we know at this time - especially given their custody fight.
Oksana wants Mel, who she says attacked her, stripped of custody of eight-month-old Lucia. The police are investigating him for domestic violence.
