Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who was collaborating with Mel Gibson on his ill-fated film The Maccabees before claiming in a letter Mel Gibson hates Jews, says he's got proof that he witnessed the latest rage-filled rants from the troubled star.Mel Gibson Smirks

His teenage son secretly recorded much of it, Eszterhas says.

"A lot of the stuff is on tape," he tells TMZ. What stuff?

Mel and Joe

He says the recordings were made in Costa Rica by his son Nick, though he would not say if the following alleged comments by Mel were captured:

  • "I want to f**k her in the ass and stab her while I'm doing it." - on his ex-girlfriend and former hate-filled rant target Oksana Grigorieva
  • "He's a c**t Jewboy." - on William Morris/Endeavor Chairman Ari Emanuel
  • "I'm glad he's dead. He deserved to be shot." - on John Lennon

In the letter to Mel written after The Maccabees fell apart, Joe wrote that his son recorded Me on his iPhone, but did not say how much, other than "a lot."

Joe also says people who allegedly witnessed Mel's rants are willing to come forward. As for The Maccabees script that Warner Bros. rejected, Joe said: "I'm heartbroken. I put my heart and soul into a script for someone who hates Jews. He needs help. Badly."

Joe Eszterhas, a screenwriter tasked with penning the since-rejected screenplay for Mel Gibson's latest movie, has accused the actor of anti-Semitism.

"You hate Jews," bluntly says Basic Instinct and Showgirls writer Eszterhas, who was to write Gibson's film about Biblical Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

In a nine-page letter to Warner Bros., Eszterhas accuses Gibson of solely pitching The Maccabees "to deflect charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged [him]."

Mel then allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks throughout the writing process.

Good Ol Mel Pic

In his letter, Eszterhas (who is Jewish) claimed that Gibson continually referred to Jews in front of him as "Hebes," "oven-dodgers" and "Jewboys."

He also claims Mel called the Holocaust "mostly a lot of horses--t"; and said his intention with The Maccabees was "to convert Jews to Christianity."

Not surprisingly, Gibson fired back just hours later.

Calling Eszterhas' claims "utter fabrications," the oft-troubled star responds, "I will acknowledge that like most creative people I am passionate and intense."

Often forgotten during the Mel Gibson-Oksana Grigorieva drama of recent years was the fact that he and wife Robyn were married, albeit separated, the whole time.

No longer.

Mel's net worth of $850 million will be divided evenly between the pair, who were married for 28 years, according to those familiar with their divorce settlement.

The dissolution of their marriage was finalized late last week. Robyn filed for divorced in April 2009, but she and Mel, who have seven children, remain close.

Mel G.

Gibson split with Robyn after announcing he was having a baby with Oksana Grigorieva. Gibson's baby Lucia with Oksana was born October 30, 2009.

That couple split a short time later as documented in the now-infamous Mel Gibson rants. Gibson has since worked out a custody deal with Oksana.

Robyn has asked that her maiden name of Moore be legally restored, but there is clearly much more than restoring her good name involved here.

Believed to be by far the largest divorce settlement in Hollywood history, the actor's payout to Robyn dwarfs others in the nine-figure range even.

Challenge extended, Vanessa Bryant.

Mel Gibson is earning high marks for his probation these days ... unlike some people

Judge Stephanie Sautner, best known as the judge who spars with Lindsay Lohan on a monthly basis, presided over a progress report in the actor's battery case this week.

If he could receive a grade, Gibson would be getting an A+ or 100/100 from Sautner.

Good Old Mel

It seems like forever ago that Oksana Grigorieva leaked the Mel Gibson tapes and accused him of assaulting her in one of the worst celebrity breakups ever.

The actor pleaded no contest to battery earlier this year.

He was given probation, and unlike certain people Sautner oversees, takes it seriously. She praised the actor for doing an exemplary job in all capacities.

Mel has apparently completed twice the amount of counseling requiring of him, and he remains right on track on his 12-step program. Good for him.

Mel Gibson and Justin Bieber can exchange virtual fist-pounds now.

Laura Bellizzi, the woman who labeled by various celeb news magazines as Gibson's baby mama has broken her silence on it, and says it's just not true.

Calling the story one based on "erroneous reports" and "lies and speculation," the former VH1 reality star says "Mel Gibson is not the father of my child."

Not a lot of wiggle room left in that denial.

  • Laura Bellizzi, Pregnant
  • Mel G.

Laura Bellizzi, a mother and a businesswoman, reportedly dated Mel over the summer, and there are photos of them together. But there was no baby conceived.

Any "alleged friends" telling gossip outlets that she's been privately identifying Gibson as her baby daddy are "being 100% dishonest in a misguided," she says.

Laura lambasted their "efforts to seek 5 seconds of notoriety and fame." Her rep says she's "greatly dismayed at the rash of intrusive and irresponsible stories."

Not to worry. Like Mariah Yeater, who dropped her paternity suit against Bieber today, she may now return to total anonymity to raise the child ... whoever the father is.

Mel Gibson is totally pulling Justin Bieber duty this week.

Fighting paternity claims of his own, Gibson has "no connection at all" to Laura Bellizzi, a random woman who claims he impregnated her over the summer, his rep said.

Alleged "friends" of hers say that they dated over the summer and frequently attended parties together. Whether or not that's true, Mel's denying he did this ...

  • Laura Bellizzi Picture
  • Mel Gibson and Some Sketchy Old Guy

Former reality star Laura Bellizzi says Mel Gibson knocked her up. That old guy creepin' in the pic? We have no idea who that is, but he does not look pleased.

A cast member on the short-lived VH1 show Secrets of Aspen, Laura Bellizzi supposedly told pals she was "super excited to be pregnant with Mel Gibson's baby!"

"She already has three daughters of her own and knows how to be a great mom," said a source last week, noting that "Laura is already five months pregnant."

She hasn't filed a paternity claim, it's worth noting, unlike Bieb's alleged paramour Mariah Yeater, who's also suing the pop singer (who denies ever meeting her).

Meanwhile, Mel does have a female interest ... though it's said to be strictly professional. He was seen out with Alphas star Azita Ghanizada talking business.

Here we go again: A pregnant reality star who dated Mel Gibson briefly during the summer is telling friends that the actor is the father of her unborn baby.

Laura Bellizzi, 35, and Gibson, 55, denied the claim when contacted for comment, and a source close to Gibson insists that it’s “physically impossible.”

Unless Mel got "fixed" after the Oksana Grigorieva debacle, we're not sure what that means. In any case, he says it's not true. Radar says otherwise.

Are You EFFING SERIOUS?!??!?!

A supposedly close insider says that Laura Bellizzi has already confided to friends that Mel is the baby daddy, but does not want the big news to go public.

“Laura’s being as secretive as she can be about it,” the source said. “But she’s really showing now, and people are beginning to ask: ‘Who’s the daddy?’”

The well-placed source says Laura, who appeared on VH1’s Secrets of Aspen in 2010, is more than four months pregnant. She and Mel dated this summer.

“Laura and Mel met through mutual friends in Malibu; the chemistry was instant,” a source said. A family member says the baby has “a famous father.”

Mel has seven kids with his estranged wife, Robyn Moore, and a daughter, Lucia, from his relationship with Russian pianist/singer/gold digger Grigorieva.

As Mariah Yeater proved, you can't believe every baby mama coming out of the woodwork. Although in Mel's case, it clearly wouldn't be the first time.

UPDATE: Check out a pic of Laura Bellizzi ...

Robert Downey, Jr., says we should forgive Mel Gibson. Oksana Grigorieva has signaled willingness to do that, but only on her terms ... which aren't being met.

Mel's former lover was back in court today after her settlement with the actor hit a snag. It looked like they were poised to let bygones be bygones. Maybe not.

Oksana and Mel struck a deal in which Oksana would walk away with $750,000, the house she's living in, and some other stuff ... and in turn leave Mel alone.

They also agreed to 50/50 custody of their daughter, Lucia. It's unclear what changed, but something about the final terms of the deal has set her off.

Angry Former Couple

The settlement agreement is scheduled to go before the family court judge tomorrow for final approval, but we're told the lawyers are still fighting over wording.

Word is they've reached a stalemate, as well.

Mel's lawyers have asked the judge for more time so they can hash it out, but Oksana Grigorieva showed up today to fight that request. She wants it done now.

Judge Scott Gordon gave Mel and Oksana a brief extension to sort out their many differences, but only until November 1. All bets are off after that point.

Robert Downey Jr. was honored at the American Cinematheque Awards last night, as numerous colleagues and friends made speeches in honor of the Oscar nominee and acknowledged the substance abuse-laden journey he took to arrive at the top of Hollywood.

But when it came time to take the stage himself, Downey shifted the focus to the man who introduced him: Mel Gibson.

Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson

"Mel and I have the same lawyer, same publicist and same shrink," Downey said of his Air America co-star. "I couldn’t get hired and he cast me. He said if I accepted responsibility – he called it hugging the cactus – long enough my life would take meaning and if he helped me I would help the next guy. But it was not reasonable to assume the next guy would be him.”

Speaking about Gibson - whose anti-Semitic and anti-Oksana Grigorieva tirades have been made very public over the recent years - The Avengers star added:

“Unless you are without sin, and if you are you are in the wrong f-ckin industry, you should forgive him and let him work."

Do you agree, readers? Should we forgive Mel Gibson?

Mel Gibson will be paying Oksana Grigorieva's son, Alexander Dalton, $100,000.

With that settlement, the teenager waives his right to sue the troubled actor.

Oksana's lawyers were trying to get Gibson to pay Alexander $500,000 for allegedly terrorizing the boy during the blowout between Oksana and Mel. 

Milking Him

Oksana just keeps milking Mel.

The altercation between the then-lovers in January 2009 sparked allegations of abuse, later discussed (and argued about) on the Mel Gibson tapes.

Oksana also alleged Mel pushed the boy onto a table on a separate occasion.

According to legal documents, Mel agreed in a settlement to pay the boy $100,000, but there is a complete waiver on Alexander's part to sue Gibson.
