Mel Gibson Allegedly Admits to Beating His Ex-Girlfriend On Tape
Mel Gibson sure is racking up a reputation as a silver-tongued devil. Well, some kind of devil, at least.
Hot on the heels of Gibson's alleged taped, racist rant at Oksana Grigorieva, his ex-girlfriend and mother to his youngest daughter Lucia, Radar Online is reporting an even more shocking allegation against the Passion of the Christ helmsman.
According to the news outlet, a second portion of tape exists in which Gibson allegedly admits to hitting Grigorieva while she held their baby girl Lucia, then blames Oksana for the assault. On the tape, a teary Grigorieva allegedly asks the actor,
“What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face? What kind of a man is that?”
To which Gibson reportedly replies,
“You know what—you f*cking deserved it.”
The exchange is in reference to an alleged January 6 incident at Gibson's Malibu mansion which, according to sources, left Grigorieva bloodied, bruised and missing two teeth. Gibson's legal team has contended that the two merely had a loud argument on the day in question.
Gibson and Grigorieva split up in April and have been locked in a bitter legal battle since then, with each party filing restraining orders against the other in recent weeks.
