It's hard to hate the recipient of threats and sickeningly vile rants from a bona fide crazy person, but Oksana Grigorieva is doing her best to defy the odds.
The Mel Gibson rants she taped are what they are. Profoundly disturbing.
But her smear campaign and possible extortion of the actor is obliterating her image. Oksana Grigorieva's latest claim? That Mel "dropped" their baby daughter Lucia after leaving her alone and going out for a cigarette at his Malibu home.
Team Mel? Team Oksana? Team I Abstain?
Mel's no saint, but it's hard to believe a word out of this woman's mouth at the same time. Her motives and credibility are highly questionable at best.
The shocking charge was made during the Russian musician's deposition in their bitter court battle over custody of the child, now nine moths of age.
Oksana Grigorieva told Mel's lawyer, Michael Kretzmer, that Lucia needed to see a doctor "because Mel dropped her and she needed (a) chiropractor."
"I ran downstairs and he already picked her up and told me that he did something stupid," Oksana testified in the August 2 deposition, under oath."He (Mel) didn't say very much, as he was upset and I took Lucia and I was - I didn't say anything to him. I asked him how it happened, and what had happened and how he found her, and he explained everything to me."
"Showed where she fell from. I analyzed her and looked at her eyes."
Oksana said little Lucia cried for up to 20 minutes after the incident.
"I looked at her bruises and analyzed them," Oksana said. "After initial shock of crying and, of course, I consoled her and she stopped crying eventually."
Oksana said she and Mel contacted a doctor but "since Lucia didn't show signs of serious injury... there was no need to take her to an emergency room."
Pressed further, Oksana recalled how Mel propped Lucia with a cushion on top of a table, "So literally she was sitting on a slide on top of the table."
"I think he went to have a smoke and she slid down."
Kretzmer questioned Oksana on whether Mel reenacted the accident. She replied: "There was no reconstruction. He just explained it to me."
