Mel Gibson reportedly uses racial slur against Hispanic people in new recording
A third audio recording of what is said to be Mel Gibson's expletive-filled rant against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has been posted on the Internet, this time containing another racial slur, following similar recordings said to be from a leaked tape and a week after an investigation of the actor regarding her domestic violence allegations was opened.
Gibson has not commented on the sound files, the first of which was posted last week. Grigorieva's attorney has said her and Gibson's voices are the ones featured on the tape.
The man yells at the woman for employing a woman at a house he owns in which she has been residing since their separation.
"I will fire her if she is at your house," the man says in in the recording, posted on celebrity website RadarOnline.com (Warning: It contains strong language). "I'll report her to the (expletive) people who take the (expletive) money from the (old-fashioned derogatory term for Hispanic people)."
In a previous recording, said to be from the same tape that RadarOnline.com says was made by Grigorieva, the man uses an racial slur against African-Americans while insulting the woman's dress style. Another one contains a threat of violence. In both the second and third released recordings, the woman refers to the man as "Mel".
In the latest audio file, the woman accuses the man of ruining her music career and controlling her "like a marionette", adding that she feels she walks on eggshells with him.
"I don't have anything because I've given you my life, three years now," she says. "I think all you want to do is just shove me in a hole and just sit at home. I live with you. I gave you a baby."
He reiterates his accusation heard in previous recordings that she allegedly used him for his money and continues to rant and curse at the women, adding that he hopes their child doesn't turn out like her and says: "Your logic sucks because you're a (expletive) mentally-deprived idiot.".
The alleged attack against Grigorieva, the 40-year-old mother of his 8-month-old daughter, Lucia and a Russian model and pianist, is said to have taken place on January 6 at Gibson's home in Malibu, California and the 54-year-old Braveheart actor has been named a potential suspect. They have not commented on the report.
The two were reportedly involved in a heated exchange as part of an ongoing custody battle, which sparked condemnation from the NAACP for the alleged racist remarks against African Americans Gibson is said to have made in his reported rant against Grigorieva. The two, who broke up in April after a one-year relationship, filed restraining orders against each other recently.
Meanwhile, Gibson has reportedly been dropped by his agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment amid the tape scandal, the recent death of his agent and his investigation.
Gibson completed a stint in rehab following a 2006 DUI tirade in which he hurled anti-Semitic and sexist comments at the arresting police officers. He later entered rehab for alcohol-related treatment. His conviction has since been expunged.
Gibson has six sons and a daughter with ex-wife Robyn Moore, to whom he was married for some 30 years and divorced in 2009, and Grigorieva has a son with another ex-boyfriend, James Bond star Timothy Dalton.
