    If an ex-wife from a 28 year marriage and step in to defend Mel, this certainly shows that Mel was not and is not a "bad" person. Yes, he had a drinking problem and at times a problem with spouting off, but being an abusive man who hits women and is a danger to babies - really, who in their right mind would believe that. Oksana had an agenda to get money out of Mel. Being extremely manipulative and knowing Mel's drinking and spouting off problem, when he was upset, she really played him. I feel sorry for Mel and for Lucia. For Lucia's mental health it would be best if Oksana did not get custody of her.


    Mel's behavior makes me sick. He was my favorite actor for years. The drunk ranting, I tried to excuse, because he was drunk. And, I do belive that Giranna did incite him to a degree. However, I find it difficult to see Mel as a 'good guy' now. I fear that the rants show a huge part of his true self. I have been in some very verbal arguments and didn't act/speak like that. If he's not insane, he has something seriously wrong with him. He gives "christians" a bad reputation. I don't see how he could ever be a favorite actor he once was. I at least can't stomach watching him anymore.


    Mel Gibson didn't do anything that I haven't done myself when I was arguing with the kind of woman I never should have brought into my life in the first place. Most men can say the same. I think the guy is great. He's a good person and a fantastic talent. Personally, I think the act of tape recording a private conversation says much worse things about the woman than Mel Gibson.


    Gibson is an ass. Alcohol is one of the greatest truth serums.


    I feel great respect to M.Gibson and amiration to his a/works, especially APOCALIPSO. No thing in the world is more beautiful. Hope to see his last work, as actor, in J.Foster movie.
    Oksana? Just ugly episod.


    Oksana is a very abusive manipulative beotch who abused Mel extensively to manipulatively set him up for that taping. BUT, nobody holds abusive women accountable at all. It must be all his fault, anytime any man reacts to an abusive manipulative woman... Sick shiz - sick woman


    Mel G. didn't hurt anybody! He's fighting with his exgirlfriend. BFD!! Have you ever had an ex to fight with? You use every word at your disposal. As far as being racist or bigoted. he has as much right to his opinion as you do. I can understand not being allowed to hurt people just because of your opinion, but when you think you should be allowed to tell a man what he can think, then you've crossed over the line. He has seen life and people and judged them with his own mind. How do you know his opinions aren't right? All this crap about Mel is just jumping on the old band wagon.


    Mel has a drinking problem...he knows it, everyone knows it, he needs help - when drunks get fired up, they can become "ugly" and needlessly aggressive in their words. Other than this drinking problem, Mel has lived a pretty blameless life...(not many attractive multi millionaires in Ego-centric Hollywood can make this claim).
    Oksana, however, is truly dispicable. She taped and released a private phone call to the world, exposing Mel when he was at his most shameful self under the influence.
    There is only one word for a woman like that, and it starts with a C.


    Let's see... a long time marriage with no rumours ever of abuse, an ex-wife who stands by his side and says he never was abusive to her or the kids, friends who support him, millions of dollars given to charities quietly without fanfare, thirty years of keeping his family out of the spotlight...

    Sounds like he was in an extremely toxic relationship and it brought the worst out in him. Count your lucky stars you got out when you did, Mel!


    Mel Gibson is a rage-alcoholic, and a sleazy drunk. This latest statement from him shows what a liar he is, sure he didn't want to subject his this is the ONLY ranting and raging he has ever done. I don't buy it, he's over the hill, and I wish he would just wander off into the sunset somewhere. Don't care if I never hear about him again, there are sooo many talented people in the business who don't get enough attention because crap like MG make disgusting headlines. He's worse than pathetic.
