If he admitted to punching her, then he probably made the outburst that she released. It is quite dramatic if you have not heard it. I would like to know the mechanism, i.e. exactly how it was recorded. If its not a phone message, and it is not; how did she set it up and did someone help her?
Why do successful men fall for something as trivial as sex in a way that ruins their reputation, legacy and hurts their family? Its not like he could not get it on the side, discretely. People close may look the other way. Not so with Spitzer and Morris; but they are political figures. Hollywood as in Europe is full of willing mistresses. Gibson is a political figure in a way, so he should expect to be outed for having a mistress, but so what? It would cause less damage than this. Come on Mel.
He and his people deny that he punched her.
According to sources connected with Mel, on January 6, 2010, Mel and Oksana were arguing at home when Oksana took baby Lucia, ran around the backyard, threw herself on the ground, came back inside the house and began shaking Lucia like a ragdoll. Mel followed and the sources acknowledge there was physical contact, but insist Mel did not punch her and was just trying to protect the baby.
You don’t put recording equipment in your diamond earings before the man supposedly goes off on you without having some sort of agenda.
