Why Oksana Grigorieva Taped Mel Gibson

by at . Comments

Oksana Grigorieva will appear tonight on Larry King Live, and when she does, she will reveal for the first time why that she taped conversations with Mel Gibson.

His legal team says, or at least strongly insinuates, that it was all done as of a plot to extort him for money. They cite her emails as proof of sinister intentions.

Her explanation? She thought she was going to die.

HE SAID, SHE SAID: Or more like he screamed, she recorded.

"I started taping it around 11 o'clock because I thought, 'I'm actually not going to live through the night. I'm not going to live through the night," she said.

Grigorieva said she hoped her mom would share the tapes with the police. "I wanted my mother to be able to prove that if I'm dead that this is who did it."

Anyone buy that? While the Mel Gibson rants were terrifying and the actor has rage issues beyond belief, she sounded awfully calm on the recordings.

As for why she stayed with Mel despite his behavior - he admits slapping Oksana but says it was to protect Lucia - Grigorieva admits it was a mistake.

"I stayed too long," she said. "I gave him the last chance. He asked for the last chance. He begged. He cried on his knees. What am I supposed to do?"

Yes very true! She sounded so calm... so unlike anyone who felt his/her life in danger. Noticed it from the beginning when the tape was played on TV. It's all abt $$$... she's not a happy camper when she doesn't get them... free ride is her trade~

mel sounded scared out of his mind in those recordings. this lady was as cool as could be. she did not sound the LEAST bit afraid. she was totally mocking and baiting him. if a woman were truly scared for her life she would have been crying, trying to calm him down, something. she was rather flat lined and totally emotionless.

He said they had an argument and then asked her to leave his house. She refused and threw a tantrum and used the baby as a weapon by endangering her. Somehow I can imagine that happening. I see what she is doing as a giant tantrum. She thought what Mel offered wasn't enough money and she was entitled to more so she being very vindictive.
