A shocking new report suggests that Oksana Grigorieva agreed to a $15 million deal with Mel Gibson that would have kept their now-infamous tapes secret.

Even more shocking? That she ultimately left it on the table.

During child custody mediations in May, their lawyers worked out a financial deal for her to receive $15 million in child support, a house and other assets.

The two have an eight-month-old daughter, Lucia. Oksana promised something in return for the deal - all "evidence" in the case would remain confidential.

The "evidence" includes the Mel Gibson tapes, which Oksana's lawyers played parts of for Mel's lawyers. The n-word rant was not played at the mediation.

A source close to the matter tells TMZ: "The tapes loomed large ... the word 'tapes' was never used in the agreement, but it was central to the deal."

Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson both signed a "short form agreement," a bare-bones contract outlining the broad components the custody settlement.

The lawyers then drafted a long form agreement which contained specifics, but at that point she refused to sign the deal, claiming that she felt coerced.

Mel never paid Oksana under the deal, as the short contract didn't spell out the specifics of payment and Oksana refused to sign the longer one that did.

Meanwhile, some of Grigorieva's text messages to Gibson have surfaced that could make their secretly-recorded conversations inadmissible in court.

Oksana clearly recorded the conversations without Mel's knowledge, and if a person isn't told the conversation is being recorded, it's not admissible.

Of course, if she feared for her safety and believed the call related to the commission of a felony (and he did threaten to kill her), it's a legal gray area.

However, reports say she sent Mel several text messages in which she states she recorded the phone calls because Mel didn't keep his part of the deal.

Mel's lawyers will likely use Oksana's texts to prove she was after money. Her side counters that if she were after money, she would have just signed.

Mel Gibson's lawyers say Oksana Grigorieva has lied about her injuries and tampered with evidence regarding his alleged assault on the mother of his child.

Now Oksana's spokesperson claims she is the smear campaign victim.

Stephen Jaffe says that "While Mr. Gibson's camp has floated a variety of false claims to try to distract the public from the true facts at hand, it is telling that his camp has not once denied that it is Mr. Gibson's voice on the published recordings."

Those being the Mel Gibson tapes.

It's true that the actor's lawyers haven't denied it's him on the tapes, which paint him as a bona fide crazy man. They've suggested that the tapes may have been doctored by Oksana and his rants taken out of context - big difference.

  • An Oksana Grigorieva Image
  • Poor Insane Mel

Both Oksana and Mel claim the other is slandering them.

Jaffe then adds, "It is common in such cases for those who perpetrate domestic violence to vilify the victim of that domestic violence. One would hope that those who are close to Mr. Gibson would take a more constructive approach."

The spokesman's response comes in part after reports surfaced last week intimating that Oksana's injuries may have been self-inflicted - which she denies.

The judge in their custody battle over eight-month-old Lucia is at least somewhat skeptical of the allegations, given the possible inconsistencies of the evidence and testimony from Mel's wife, Robyn, that he never abused her in 28 years.

However, other experts say her injuries are consistent with her story.

"It is obvious not only from the photograph of Ms. Grigorieva, but from other evidence ...that he struck her in the mouth and temple, that she sustained injuries as a result of his blows," says a source close to the Gibson investigation.

"The notion that her wounds were 'self-inflicted' is ridiculous and not credible. No legitimate, independent expert analyst could reasonably draw such a conclusion."

Did Mel Gibson assault Oksana Grigorieva? Police are investigating that matter, but at least right now, a judge doesn't think he poses a threat to his daughter.

Sources connected with the case say the sworn declaration by Robyn Gibson, Mel's wife of 28 years, was "powerful evidence" in Thursday's court proceedings.

Robyn, who split with Mel right around the time he began dating Oksana, swore under oath Mel never physically abused her or their seven kids in 28 years.

The testimony from Robyn resonated with Judge Scott Gordon, a former prosecutor in the L.A. County D.A.'s Office who specialized in domestic violence.

Believing that a man who commits violence against a woman will do so with everyone he's involved with, Gordon felt Mel posed no danger to his daughter.

Oksana Grigorieva's secret recordings of Mel Gibson losing it on the phone may have tarnished his reputation, but officials are unsure if he abused her physically.

Robyn's defense of the actor, along with inconsistencies suggesting the now-infamous Mel Gibson tapes were somehow altered, kept the status quo in place.

The investigation into Gibson's conduct is ongoing, but for now, the star will retain visitation rights with baby Lucia as well as one overnight a week.

Oksana, who claims he hit her twice, has primary custody.

As for the alleged Oksana Grigorieva abuse photo she says proves he punched her in the face, police aren't sure her story adds up - nor is her dentist.

Dr. Ross Shelden's medical charts, photos and examination raise serious questions about her injuries - he sees no evidence Oksana was hit in the mouth. 

However, he does see evidence of a different scenario

The Mel Gibson tapes are disturbing and reveal a terrible temper, but Oksana Grigorieva is still lacking for evidence that the actor physically attacked her.

Until now ... maybe.

Earlier this morning, Radar Online posted a photo of Oksana taken hours after she claims Gibson punched her in the face during a January 6 altercation.

The image is part of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department's ongoing investigation of the deeply troubled actor, who may face domestic violence charges.

It’s also being used by Oksana in her custody battle with Mel over their eight-month-old daughter Lucia. You can see the awful photo for yourself here.

The question is: Did Mel Gibson do it?

The OG

Not necessarily. Oksana says he punched her twice in the mouth, knocking out her teeth and giving her a concussion. But is the pic consistent with that claim?

According to TMZ, Oksana's teeth were not damaged, despite her dentist submitting in a declaration that one veneer was knocked out and another damaged.

Experts who have analyzed the photos believe that Grigorieva's injury is inconsistent with being punched in the mouth since there is no soft tissue damage.

In other words, it may have been self-inflicted and this is a shakedown.

There is "no evidence of external or internal damage," a law enforcement source told the celebrity gossip site. Mel has denied physically attacking Oksana.

Gibson's lawyers are expected to accuse Oksana of trying to extort Mel out of more than $10 million in return for keeping the tapes of his tirades private.

As for the rant in which Mel apparently admits beating Oksana, telling her she deserved it after she referenced him punching her, that's questionable too.

Mel's legal team wants taped rants thrown out as evidence because of "strong evidence" they were edited and tampered with ... it's all extremely weird.

Basically, the Gibson tapes are what they are - in terms of vulgarity, and proving in chilling detail that one of Hollywood's biggest stars needs serious help.

But there's also so much we don't know: Why he is SO angry? Were the recordings altered? Is her injury really self-inflicted? Will either face charges?

That we'll have to wait and see.

The five shocking, vile recordings of Mel Gibson tearing apart his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have painted a disturbing picture of the actor this week.

Mel's crazed rants were filled with racial slurs, misogynistic insults, death threats, demands for oral sex and laments of financial problems. Just ugly stuff.

But where the Mel Gibson tapes - which his lawyers already claim were edited and altered - the subject of a criminal extortion attempt by Grigorieva?

Sources connected with the star say there is "hard proof" Oksana tried to blackmail Gibson, demanding more than $10 million to keep the tapes secret.

We're guessing he didn't play ball.

RANSOM: Mel Gibson clearly has serious problems, but was Oksana Grigorieva trying to exploit and extort him by recording their explosive phone calls in secret?

Sources close to Mel now say Oksana even went so far as to demand a specific amount of money, one they declined to reveal but say exceeded $10 million.

Moreover, the sources boldly claim that there are emails and other "physical evidence" to prove it. One source even said, "There's a long trail of evidence."

The judge handling Mel and Oksana's custody fight declined to strip him of visitation rights Thursday, even as police investigate him for domestic violence.

Oksana alleges that Mel hit her in the face twice, citing one of the tapes as evidence. Mel's wife of 28 years, Robyn Gibson, says he was never violent.

Mel's lawyers will be meeting with L.A. County Sheriff's deputies, making a presentation of evidence which includes their alleged evidence of extortion. 

His legal team will likely push for a criminal investigation of Oksana.

Whose side are you on?

Mel Gibson may have some serious issues, but his soon-to-be ex-wife Robyn says he is a terrific father to their seven children and was never abusive.

In a written, sworn declaration to the courts defending him from allegations of domestic violence by new girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, Robyn states:

'Sana

"Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage ... Mel was a wonderful and loving father."

During their 28 years of marriage (she filed for divorce last year, around the time Mel began seeing Oksana), Robyn says he was never violent.

A stark contrast from the raving madman heard on the Mel Gibson tapes recorded by Oksana Grigorieva this week - tapes police are looking into.

Mel and Robyn Gibson married nearly three decades ago.

Detectives are currently investigating whether Mel abused Oksana, with whom he is in an ugly custody dispute over their baby daughter, Lucia.

They are examining the authenticity of the recordings, according to officials, following claims by Gibson's attorneys of editing and tampering.

In the most recent Mel Gibson rant to leak online (there are five in all), Grigorieva calls the actor, who is ranging mad, the worst father ever.

His wife apparently would take issue with that.

It's unclear if Mel will face criminal charges for the abuse Oksana alleges, but the well-respected Robyn could ultimately be a strong ally of his.

More details to come as the story develops ...

Just when you thought a day might pass without a secretly recorded Mel Gibson telephone tirade against Oksana Grigorieva leaking online ... another one has.

In the latest of the shocking tapes, which his lawyers are claiming have been edited and tampered with, he rails against the “B!tch c*%t wh*re gold digger!”

While we're used to Gibson using vile language and becoming completely unglued, rant #5 is most notable for his apparent admission of financial problems.

Gasping for air and in between more f-bombs than we can even count, Gibson blames the mother of his eight-month-old daughter for his dire fiscal straits.

“F*ckin’ user! You f*ckin’ used me! I will never forgive you!” he yells, panting as if he just ran a marathon. “You are very mean,” Grigorieva calmly replies.

This further enrages the deeply disturbed actor.

“Yeah, you know what mean is now, don’t you? So don’t call me mean when I’m nice to you. Because I’d like to show you what mean really is," he screams.

Then he really goes off: "B!tch c*%t wh*re gold digger!! All true! You f*%king proved it to me! If you’re ever interested in proving otherwise, let me know."

“Look at yourself. Look what you’ve f*%king done! Look at your son. He’s a f*%king mess. You f*%king excuse for a mother. You’re a f*%king bitch!”

Wow.

The Mel Gibson tapes make abundantly clear he needs mental help. But he apparently needs financial assistance too, if his latest tirade is any indication.

Mel says he needs cash so badly, he had to part ways with some artwork and - gasp - L.A. Lakers tickets. “I don’t have any f*%king money!" he moans.

It's a stunning claim from one of Hollywood's biggest names, although he did just divorce his wife of 30 years, Robyn. That couldn't have been cheap.

His vile rants have forever altered people's perception of him, but Mel Gibson's lawyers claim the now-infamous tapes of his outbursts were tampered with.

The actor's legal team says it has hard evidence that the four tapes (and counting) Oksana Grigorieva secretly recorded were tampered with and edited.

If true, it's still Mel ranting like a sexist pig, making death threats and racial slurs, and demanding to be orally serviced before burning down her house.

But it may make the tapes inadmissible in a court of law.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department will have to authenticate the Mel Gibson tapes before handing over the domestic violence case to the D.A.'s Office.

That could take some time. Gibson faces investigation by authorities for allegedly attacking Oksana Grigorieva - while she carried their daughter no less.

Authentic or not, follow the jump for ALL the Gibson tapes ...

In the latest of four Mel Gibson tapes to leak online, the disturbed star demands oral sex from girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, then threatens to burn her house down.

Even funnier? We're pretty sure she's living in one of his houses.

The fourth Mel Gibson tirade, released just hours ago, is on par with the first three in terms of rage, but slightly more amusing in terms of what he's fired up about.

Upset that she refused sex in favor of sleep, Gibson screams: "I deserve to be blown first! ... I'll burn the goddamn house up, but blow me first! How dare you!??!"

It's a valid point ... if you're criminally insane.


Mel Gibson's rants continue to defy comprehension.

At another point in the terrifying argument, Mel says: "I should've woken you up and said f**king blow me b!tch! I should've f*%king woken you up and said blow me! You would've liked that better, yeah? But you need goddamn sleep!"

When Grigorieva asks for the number of his therapist, he angrily retorts: "You wanted the number of my therapist? Don't you ever speak to him! Find your own goddamn therapist! Because you've got problems more than me!"

"You gotta push my f*%king buttons. And it's not going to work with us! It's not! I can't get like this anymore. You're a liar and you're dishonest and you're f*%ked up! So you stay the f*%k away from me ... I better have my daughter!"

Umm ... yeah.

On the plus side, at least he didn't threaten to kill her or make racial slurs. Earlier rants had that covered. Mel Gibson remains under investigation for domestic violence and locked in a bitter custody battle with Oksana over 8-month-old Lucia.

Yet another tape of angry Mel Gibson berating Oksana Grigorieva with the most vile language possible has been released. What could possibly provoke such rage?

Who knows, but the guy needs serious mental help, ASAP.

We've already heard Mel go off on his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his eighth child in two previous phone calls she clandestinely taped. Now a third has been leaked.

In it, he uses ethnic and sexist slurs in a rampage only slightly less crazed than the tape leaked Monday in which he threatens to kill Oksana and admits beating her.

Similar to the first Mel Gibson rant released online, the embattled star hurls offensive slurs left and right, referring to a Latino housekeeper/worker as a “wetback.”

  • Mean Mel
  • Oksana G.

What the heck is wrong with Mel Gibson?!

That term is one of the nicer ones used by Mel in the six-minute tape, during which the deeply troubled actor often accuses Oksana of cheating and using him.

Whether she did cheat on Mel or not is unclear, and it is worth mentioning that Oksana could have edited these tapes to paint him in the worst possible light.

This doesn't change the fact that he's a misogynistic a$$hole under investigation for domestic abuse, but there's got to be more to this than we know now.

Anyway, there are too many pieces of shocking dialogue to count, but this one in particular stands out, right before the terrifying phone conversation ends:

Mel: Go look after my child!
Oksana: She’s my child too.
Mel: Yeah I know, unfortunately you c*** w****! I hope she doesn’t turn out like you!

Disgusting and scary. Follow the jump to listen to the full six-minute tirade by Mel Gibson. Be forewarned once again that this is unsettling, awful stuff ...
