Mel Gibson was secretly recorded ranting against Joe Eszterhas over the latter's draft of their ill-fated film project The Maccabees, and the audio has leaked online.
Eszterhas' family was in Costa Rica at Mel's house in December. He was tasked with writing a draft of The Maccabees, which didn't go over well with Gibson.
That's putting it mildly:
Eszterhas' 15-year-old son, Nick, recorded the Oscar winner with his iPhone, and he was "adamant" his dad release it to the media. So he did, to The Wrap.
"Why don't I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f--k have you been doing?" Gibson can be heard yelling in the two-and-a-half-minute tape.
Gibson also can be heard yelling, presumably referencing Oksana, that "I am earning money for a filthy little c--ksucker who takes advantage of me!"
It's worth noting that while he scarily rants like a bona fide crazy person, the most inflammatory comments Mel is accused of making do not appear.
It's unclear if there are additional audio recordings.
