Mel Gibson's reported racist rant heard in audio recording
An audio recording of what is reported to be Mel Gibson's racist and expletive-filled rant against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has been leaked online, a day after an investigation of the actor was confirmed to have been opened regarding domestic violence allegations made by her.
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.
In the tape, the man insults the woman's appearance, calling her breast implants "ridiculous" and "stupid", refers to her as an "embarrassment" and says she was "provocatively dressed all the time".
"I don't like it. I don't want that woman. I don't want you. I don't believe you anymore. I don't trust you, I don't love you, I don't want you," he says in the two-minute audio clip that was posted on RadarOnline.com. (Warning: It contains strong language).
Grigorieva, the mother of his 8-month-old daughter, Lucia, remains eerily calm in the recording. 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.
The alleged attack against Grigorieva, a 40-year-old 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.
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.
