Did Oksana Grigorieva Try to Extort Mel Gibson?

Guess Oksana Grigorieva never heard the phrase “talk is cheap.”

According to TMZ, evidence is mounting that Mel Gibson’s baby mama demanded big bucks from her famous ex in exchange for keeping his now-infamous taped rants a secret. A source says that Russian-born singer Grigorieva may have asked for more than $10 million in exchange for her silence.

Insiders tell TMZ that they have “hard proof” of an extortion attempt, including emails and other “physical evidence.” Says one source,

“There’s a long trail of evidence.”

Gibson’s lawyers are already planning to float the extortion theory, and will reportedly present evidence to L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies in an upcoming meeting. The lawyers are said to be seeking a criminal investigation into the alleged extortion plot.
