“Many people that are creative are bipolar. Its an illness. I dont curse anyone thats 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.
On the whole I think Mel Gibson is the victim here.
His privacy has been systematically invaded by other people with their own agenda.
ever = never
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.
I agree! I think this is a spiritual battle we are in. I think that Mel has been very blessed, that the dark side has wanted to destroy him, and been trying to set him up for years. I can see her setting him up for this. SHe had another baby with another man and would not marry him. Mel wanted to get married, but she wouldn’t. That told me that she was probably a gold digger. And Mel....another dumb amn falling for a womans lies. I think she subconsciouly or consciously wanted to destroy him, and set him up! Everyone loves to see the mighty fall, and he was a mighty spiritual seeker. Please bless him and give him Your courage and Your love.
Oh well then, he can do what ever he wants. /s
Who said that?! Anywhere on this thread? You DO know there’s 2 sides to every story, right?
Do you know there's two sides to every story?
Agree wholeheartedly. Things yelled in secret/behind marriage doors shouldn’t be aired for the world to see. Yes, what he said is vile but I’d wager 95% of the people here have said similar repulsive things are some point in their lives.
Did you know that a judge ordered the tapes sealed? Did you know that Gibsons attorneys have filed with the court because she violated the judges order about the tapes? Did you know that two retired superior court judges moderated an agreement that she signed then reneged on? Did you know that Gibson bought her a house and car? Did you know that they went to Russia with the baby, AFTER she made the tapes?
They aren't married.
His anti Semitic rants were not behind closed doors.
His called a female police officer “sugar tits” was not behind closed doors.
Anyone who is defending or looking for excuses for this sad excuse of a human being, ask yourself why.
Why are you running around busily pointing your finger?
Because it is an intellectual curiosity why anyone stands up for this obvious POS.
Some of us are smart enough to know there are 2 sides to every story and "intellectuals" like you only hear one.
And St. Peter LIED straight faced to the Lord three times, with foreknowledge of the event. All the apostles sinned daily, and made mistakes. Mel makes his, but somehow we can't forgive him, though the Lord forgave the Jewish leaders who crucified Him.
If the Lord can forgive, then so can I.
I can’t imagine staying with someone after the first time he behaves that way. So not having any first hand experience with any people who live like this I guess it’s hard for me to imagine any woman acting so calm as if this is normal.
How very galant of you.
Has it maybe occurred to you that you, not being a target of his rants, his vitriol and his violence, maybe you don't have the standing/competence to forgive him.
I heard his side from his own mouth, he will burn the house down, but he demands a BJ before anything else.
Gibson is bipolar. And an alcoholic. And suicidal. He needs help. Not a woman extorting and publicly humiliating him.
You can be a Pharisee. There are quite a few of them....so proud that they aren’t like THEM. Jesus says we are all sinners. Everyone. And that even in your Pharisee mode you’re no better than Gibson or the Russian. Hope nobody ever gets you in their sites and publicly exposes your private sins.
The very minute I become a violent drunk racist pr**k like him I should be exposed. Society would be better off.
Trust me, you’ve already exposed who you are.
I'll guess you didn't watch Nightline last night, where in a report on all this, experts in domestic violence were quoted a saying that women, when dealing with just such a situation, should respond in a manner exactly as this woman responded, in a clam monotone manner.
But the bottom line- that you keep on ignoring- is that Gibsons's sickness is not just about this woman.
Yes, I'm a Jew, I start all of the World's wars. Right?
I don't have a TV. Why pay to hear liars lie and listen to liberal press?
In some little corner of the universe that may be something to be proud of, in my world, shutting your mind to the outside world is not something to be proud of.
And I would know that exactly how?
I have never "bashed" a Jew in my life. But they sure have started wars......at God's behest. I read all about it. It's called the Old Testament. They won too. Well.....they won when they listened to God.
Noob a lot of Freepers stopped watching liberal TV. You won’t last long here. Bet on it.
The Pharisees crucified their own Savior. I can think of no worse crime than that in the long sad history of mankind.
Yes they did. Out of hatred and fear. He exposed them.
We don’t know here.
#1 Supposed to be a felony to record off the phone without permission of all parties on the line.
#2 Was this a setup? We don’t know what the woman might have said to piss set Mel off before she hit her record button.
#3 She tried to get paid in exchange for the tape from Mel.
#4 The first wife of Mel (28 years) just filed something with the court saying Mel in twenty eight years was NEVER violent with either her of the children.
I would love to have heard a recording with neither knew they were being recorded.
I think Mel is a big talker and that his gal pal was quite the greedy tool herself.
In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis discusses how much delight the devil takes in the fall of a religious man.
Truly, Mel Gibson sounds possessed in those tapes. His wife of 28 years is testifying that he never raised a hand or behaved like this towards her or any of their children. Why now? I understand he’s an alcoholic but he has been for years - that’s nothing new. Prayers needed for all of them.
“Truly, Mel Gibson sounds possessed in those tapes. His wife of 28 years is testifying that he never raised a hand or behaved like this towards her or any of their children. Why now?”
The tapes were tampered with, and are inadmissible in court as evidence. The damage to Gibson’s public reputation is of course already done.
My opinion is that Mel is a verbally intemperate man with problems, and Oksana is evil.
