As increasingly unbelievable accusations are being made by Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, some are asking “Is she a pathological liar?” Accusations of Gibson’s abuse were first heard from Oksana Grigorieva a few weeks ago. Soon Grigorieva produced an audio tape, purporting to be evidence of Gibson’s abusive nature. But this week it was proven the Gibson audio tape was edited so how valid this evidence can be is now in question. Grigorieva then produced photos supposedly showing her after she’d been hit in the mouth by Mel Gibson, this while she was holding their eight-month-old baby. Experts say these photos show signs of being Photoshopped, just one more thing making Grigorieva’s ‘evidence’ look suspicious. But the latest accusation against Gibson from Grigorieva has moved way over into the realm of fantasy land, and made her look like nothing more than a pathological liar out for revenge.
Yesterday, just a few days after a California judge refused to change custody terms for Gibson, Grigorieva and their baby, saying there was no evidence the child was at risk from Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva came out with the most outrageous accusation yet. According to The New York Daily News, she said when Gibson punched her, he also tried to strangle her and held a gun to her head. All of this while she was holding their child. Then he threatened to shoot her and shoot himself – a murder-suicide.
Call me skeptical but, after this unbelievable accusation, I’ve now moved over into the “Oksana Grigorieva is a pathological liar” camp and I think I’m pitching my tent there.
Look at it this way. When all of this nasty mess first began, Grigorieva started ‘small’. According to Mel Gibson and his lawyers, she attempted to extort $10 million from Gibson or she’d ‘go public’ with audio tapes. Gibson told her “There’s no more money coming from me”. So, the stereotypical woman out for vengeance went public with the tapes and the proverbial shit hit the fan. However, what Grigorieva obviously expected, money and Gibson forced to hand over full-custody of their daughter didn’t materialize. A judge told Grigorieva she could not go public with the tapes and would be in contempt of court if she did. Weirdly the tapes then ‘disappeared’ and re-emerged in the offices of one of the scummiest celebrity gossip sites on the web, with Grigorieva saying she had “no idea” how they got there and that she didn’t get paid for the tapes (California police are now investigating her for contempt).
After the release of the tapes, public reaction came down as much on Grigorieva as it did on Gibson so, the next step in her nasty little plan was photographs. Photographs that appear to have been Photoshopped, with even her dentist who supposedly treated her Gibson-punched teeth saying that’s not what her teeth looked like. Again, Grigorieva didn’t get what she wanted and Gibson was awarded shared custody of their child after his wife told the court under oath he had never threatened or abused her or their children in 28 years of marriage.
And again, Grigorieva is left with nothing. No money, no full-custody, no vindication. Which pushes her to put into effect her final plan. To say Gibson put a gun to her head and threatened to murder her then kill himself. Weird how she didn’t think to mention that when she was in court with the judge begging for full custody last week, eh? I wonder what she’ll be fabricating tomorrow.
At this sad point, the only way to look at Oksana Grigorieva is as a pathological liar who’s out for revenge. But, you’ve also got to admonish Mel Gibson at this juncture who should have stayed with his well-adjusted wife of 28 years and not gone to fantasy land with a crazy Russian.
