Mel Gibson Allegedly Threatens to Kill His Girlfriend on Tape

Maybe Mel Gibson should start taking deep breaths and counting to ten before opening his mouth from now on.

Radar Online has unearthed yet another audio snippet between the Lethal Weapon actor and his baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, in which Gibson not only seemingly admits to striking Grigorieva, but possibly threatens to kill her not once, but twice.

During the conversation, a bellowing, out-of-control Gibson tells Grigorieva that she “deserved” to get beaten by him, and alludes to the possibility of killing her and burying her in the rose garden of his Malibu mansion.

Gibson is currently being investigated for domestic violence by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, stemming from an alleged January 2010 incident during which he supposedly struck Grigorieva twice while she held their infant daughter, Lucia, leaving Grigorieva with a broken tooth.

If this new tape is authentic, it’s not likely to help Gibson’s case any. In one section of the recording, Grigorieva brings up the alleged January incident, only to be told by Gibson that she had the beat-down coming: 

Oksana: “What kind of a man is that? Hitting a woman when she’s holding a child in her hands? Breaking her teeth twice in the face! What kind of man is that?”

Mel: “Oh, you’re all angry now! You know what, you f* cking deserved it!”

In another portion of the recording, when Grigorieva suggests that Gibson’s tone is threatening, the actor replies,

“Threaten ya? I’ll put you in a f *ckin rose garden you c*nt! You understand that? Because I’m capable of it. You understand that?”

This is apparently a recurring fantasy for Gibson, who during another argument with Grigorieva declared, “I will bury you in the rose garden.”

Oh, and for good measure Gibson tells Grigorieva,

“You need a f*cking bat in the side of the head. Alright, how about that?”

At one point, Gibson attempts to explain the source of his anger with his now-ex-girlfriend, screaming,

“You don’t have any f*cking friends except me, and you treat me like sh*t! So that’s why I’m so f*cking angry, because I don’t have any friends! And I try and make one from you and you treat me like sh*t and you f*cking used me!”

Mel Gibson, friendless? We can’t see how that could possibly be true…
