Okay, I hadn't seen that he said she was doing that but he sounds nuts screaming.

No. She was careful about what was said on the tapes. She's playing to an audience. He's simply responding to her. When he said "You deserved it", he is assuming that she knows the reason and doesn't explain it.

Mel is bipolar and rich. He has problems. That makes him an easy target. And she's a pro. He has also talked about suicide in interviews. This is quickly becoming an unfolding tragedy that I hope goes no further.

My co-workers in San Antonio used “live-in” for their adjective-as-noun. I think refusing to name the job is debasing to the nanny, housekeeper, maid, servant, or employee.

Have fun with the Marines! I hope it’s not too hot there. We’re going to The Salvation Army (trade two old stuffed animals for one “new” one) and the Post Office.

What kind of a light are you shining to the world?

You're seeing a bipolar alcoholic who has admitted thinking about suicide. And you're watching him being driven/stalked by a gold digger. He's easy pickins.

So now an illness excuses behavior? Not buying it.

He acts this way away from her. He has problems...no excuses. I don't care what movies he's made, he needs help and he should get it instead of screaming at everyone.

I have one in my family. Bipolar alky. Help is available. It’s possible to get AND STAY sober and stay on your meds. These jackasses make a conscious CHOICE to get off the meds and go get trashed. Because of that, they don’t have an excuse for what happens after. Screw these people. Selfish pieces of filth!

And this vulgar stuff is what you focus on? This is your escape? And you're going to blame Obama that you focus on crap like this? So, if you were focusing on gardening or history, your family, or something else useful, you would credit Obama?

He is bipolar. He said that years ago. There are others on this thread discussing it. He has also talked of suicide. This woman is playing with fire. For money.

Btw, right after she made the tapes, they went to Russia. Yeah. She's terrified. They also had a court mediated agreement in front of 2 retired judges 6 months after the taping. Never mentioned abuse and agreed to everything, $10,000 a month and visitation. Then reneged. And released tapes sealed by another judge. What do you think she's after?

I really don’t know why people care about the personal lives of Hollywood stars.

I like Mel’s movies. I will always like Mel’s movies no matter how many crazy rants get published. Who cares!?

Is Mad Max good? Yup. Braveheart? Yup. The Patriot? Yup. etc, etc

Springseen is similar. He’s a leftist lunatic. But I like his music and will no matter what he spews about politics and Republicans in general.

There’s no reason Mel can’t continue to produce great pics. The Passion of the Christ and Apocalypto (highly underated IMHO) for example. He doesn’t need to act.

Many people that are creative are bipolar. It’s an illness. I don’t curse anyone that’s struggling with an illness.

“Many people that are creative are bipolar. It’s an illness. I don’t curse anyone that’s struggling with an illness.”

Excuses are like *ssholes. Mel needs to quit drinking if he’s bipolar. The two do NOT mix well.

LOL! I guess it’s easier to focus on my screenname that answer a question. That is the usual tactic for someone that won’t defend their assertions. Enjoy your day too!

If he wasn't ill he'd know that.

First he ranted about Jews,and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then he ranted about Blacks,and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t Black.

Then he ranted about Hispanics, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t Hispanic.

The he was proved to be a violent misogynist, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a woman.

Then.........

On the whole I think Mel Gibson is the victim here.
His privacy has been systematically invaded by other people with their own agenda.

I have to disagree. Woman that are married to men like this are so used to it, that it does not faze them anymore. My husbands sister is married to a man that acts the same way. He gets into drunken rages over the phone and calls her every name in the book. The funny thing is that he sees himself as the victim too, just like Mel.
My sister-in-law is always calm and just listens and holds the phone away from her ear and lets him rant. He is over it the next day and she goes home. He doesn't remember or admit how bad he sounded the night before. We always told her she should get him on tape and make him listen to himself.
This has been going on for ten years. However, unlike Mel, he never hit her.
BTW, he is a lot older and has a lot of money too.

I agree. I can separate. We all do to an extent with singers and actors we like. We don’t KNOW most of their personal darksides, and we don’t want to. If you had to love everything about someone before you enjoyed their work we’d have no music, films, plays- or even inventions.
Can Gibson still work in his chosen field? Possibly- if he can control himself.
Will be be ALLOWED to continue? Ahhhh... that is where the power of PC comes in! If his industry turns against him he’ll have to do independent things. And if he ends up paying mega $$ out to child support, alimony and damages -with no new income-he could very well end up ranching in Australia, screaming at kangaroos.

Nobody brings up the fact that Oksana has a 13yr old son with Timothy Dalton, who’s career was white hot that many years ago. I’m sure Oksana made a bundle from that “transaction”. Since there is no evidence of a son now, maybe Timothy Dalton bought out her custodial rights. Personally, I think Oksana’s money ran out so she made a pitch for married man Gibson, and now via the baby, has a guaranteed income monthly for the next 18-25 years. Meanwhile, Gibson, after Robyn got her 1/2 share of the money (well deserved imo), and now Oksana is dickering over her $20 million payout, plus $10,000 a month, the now unemployable Gibson is starting to feel the pinch. Nothing is a more bitter pill than knowing you’ve “been had”.

The Russian still has her son, Alexander Dalton, with her. And Gibson isn’t unemployable as he has contracts for 2 movies, if the Russian doesn’t ruin him.
