Kristian Herzog to Be Deposed By Mel Gibson

by at . Comments

Mel Gibson's legal team is gearing up to depose the rogue bodyguard who claimed he nailed Oksana Grigorieva and that she is lying about all things Mel.

The interrogation of Kristian Herzog, a twice-convicted felon is set for Friday. Accused of battering his ex, Mel wants the dirt he hopes will vindicate him.

"Gibson's camp believe Kristian will admit Oksana is exaggerating her version of events in relation to the domestic violence allegations," a source said.

Kristian Herzog (left), may be a key player in the Mel-Oksana feud.

Oksana Grigorieva has claimed the Oscar winner punched her in the head on January 6, 2010, at his mansion in Malibu, knocking two of her teeth out.

While she was holding their infant daughter Lucia, no less.

But Kristian Herzog, who has signaled a shift to Team Mel in recent weeks, may be ready to go on record saying she's a manipulative, distrustful liar.

Whether his testimony is believable itself is another story.

A source says that Oksana's legal team is not concerned about what Kristian will say, believing it is more of a distraction than anything damaging.

"He is not a credible witness," one source said.

"Here you have a convicted criminal who went out of his way, ingratiating himself into Oksana's life with the promise of free bodyguard protection."

"He declared his support for her, to supposedly switched camps and supporting Mel, all around the same time his romantic advances were spurned?"

A fair point, you gotta admit. There's also the whole thing about Gibson wanting to murder him that he supposedly went off about late last year.

Whose side are you on?

I think that Herzog's honesty is questionable, but e-mails and documents don't lie. If Mel's lawyers get their hands on what documented and physical evidence Kris has, it will lend credibility to what Herzog has to say now.

Truth for this rootin' tootin' cowboy is obviously whatever truth is the convenient truth for the moment. What works to their advantage is all that counts to these knuckleheads. Lame but I agree it's entertaining.

Herzog is a two time felon. CA has th ethree strikes yur out law. IF Herzog lies it'llbe proven my Mel's OR Ox's lawyers. THAT"S perjury, a grime. Herzog would then go to jail and never see freedom again.. You think maybe he's struck a deal to stay out of jail and tell the truth!!? He is looking after his own best interests. He's telling the truth now that Ox isn't giving him any hea.....you know.

It is time that the hoax Oksana has tried to present to the Courts comes to an end. If Herzog is willing to revel the truth than let it be. 44 lawyers and a year of court time is enough.

Wasn't this the tub of lard that said with conviction that he couldn't stand by silently because he was so disgusted by the abuse Oksana suffered at the hands of Mel? So he posted this declaration, attesting to how great Oksana was & making it his public mission to stand up against domestic violence? And now after he was given the boot due to his criminal record, he is saying all his heartfelt, earnest claims were greatly exaggerated? HaHaHaHaHa! Yep that'll float. This case has taken on epic proportions of stupidity & hilarity!
