Did Mel Gibson admit domestic violence via text message?
According to a new report allegedly containing a message from the actor to Oksana Grigorieva, he did, addressing their January 6 altercation after the fact.
"Oksana, I wasn't safe for you last night," he supposedly wrote to his now-former girlfriend, who he's now under investigation for domestic violence against.
Radar Online claims possession of Mel Gibson text messages sent a day after he allegedly punched Oksana in the head as she was holding their baby Lucia.
Oksana's abuse allegations have been clouded by Mel claiming he is the victim of extortion, which police are also investigating. How does the text fit in?
According to Radar, the star sent this text on January 7:
"I spent two hours with a therapist today and have regained some perspective. What I am telling you know is I am safe & would like to come by and make amends to you, Sascha and Lucia. I won't stay, just let you say your peace and I'll say mine."
That apologetic text, if authenticated, would seem to be an admission of violence and corroborate some comments on the inflammatory Mel Gibson tapes.
Again, the dual debates over the authenticity of the recordings and text messages, as well as whether Oksana was using them to try to shake down Mel.
On the phone calls she taped, Mel told Oksana she "f*%king deserved it" after she complained about him hitting her, and that "no one will believe [her]."
The text message exchange is in Oksana's phone, Radar says. She was ordered to surrender it to the authorities as part of the official investigation.
He also references Alexander, or Sacha, Oksana's 12-year-old. Mel is also accused of attacking her son, though he says eyewitnesses will deny this.
