The majority of THG poll respondents stand with Mel Gibson in his ongoing legal and custody battles with his controversial ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.

We’re guessing her bodyguards don’t read THG. Their loss.

In any case, the men who are currently protecting her – all U.S. military veterans – are coming to her defense and making it clear they’re on Team Oksana.

If you missed it, Oksana alleges he abused her and their eight-month-old daughter, Lucia, in January. Authorities are investigating but haven’t charged Mel.

Many are skeptical, but bodyguards believe her. The Bodyguard Group, a referral service for veterans, just posted the following statement on its site:

“The Bodyguard Group has reviewed both versions of events and ALL of our members agree that ONLY Oksana is being 100% honest… We ask that everyone support Oksana and take a stand against all men who abuse women and children.”

While it’s unusual for bodyguards who don’t normally take sides to be so vocal, the post adds, “We could not keep silent after the abuse Oksana suffered.”

It is unclear if any bodyguards are the witnesses her attorneys claim saw Mel hit Oksana, but they seem fairly certain the actor was abusive in some way.

Well? Changed your mind yet, Mel supporters?
