Was Mel Gibson Plotting to Kill Harvey Levin?

In the latest crazy Mel Gibson news item of the day, RadarOnline is reporting his ex Oksana Grigorieva claims that Mel wanted “Jew blood” on his hands by killing a “high-profile Hollywood figure” who had done him wrong. Who might that figure be? TMZ claims it’s their head honcho, Harvey Levin.

In the Radar report, Oksana reportedly said that “Mel told her, ‘I want Jew blood on my hands,’ and said he wanted the person taken to the desert, stripped naked, knee capped and left in the heat.”

TMZ claims that Harvey is that man, saying Mel wanted revenge for TMZ breaking the story of his DUI arrest and anti-Semitic rant in 2006. They say on their site:

Earlier this week, Oksana’s rep, Steve Jaffe, told Harvey that Mel had described to Oksana a plot to kill Harvey.  Jaffe said Oksana claimed Mel told her he was furious that TMZ broke the story about the anti-Semitic rant following Mel’s 2006 DUI arrest.  Jaffe said Oksana told him Mel had said he wanted the “blood of Jews” on his hands … According to Jaffe, Oksana said Mel told her he had someone do “surveillance” on Harvey earlier this year, having him followed to the gym at 4 AM.

TMZ says Mel’s alleged hitman plan didn’t go very far since they didn’t even go to the correct gym, and further doubt the report’s validity by saying Oksana never mentioned this when she was negotiating her split from Mel.

What do you think? Would Mel really try to whack Harvey, or is TMZ just trying to get into the Mel news cycle? Please opine in the comments.
