I sure hope it is a fake. Either that or they discover Mel was on drugs that she gave him...or SOMEthing. I won’t support the guy if the tapes are real, but I REALLY want to believe that’s not Mel.
This scenario will be interesting to see played out.
oddly enough my wife is somewhat sympathetic to Gibson through all this
I hate to say it, but when I heard these, they sounded really weird...her voice DID sound like it was in a studio and his was too disjointed, even for being stoned...I personally don’t believe they are authentic...not saying our Boy doesn’t have a screw loose, but that doesn’t make him automatically guilty of this.
I did notice that in the leaked recordings I’ve heard, you never hear Mel and Oksana speaking at the same time. Almost always during a telephone conversation, there are points where both parties speak at the same time.
If on the tapes we hear Mel say the phrases:
“Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take... OUR FREEDOM! “
We will know for sure the tapes are doctored!
It boils down to just how conniving this little lady might be.
We all know Mel is quick to anger, all she has to do is push the easy buttons. She easily could have been taping him for months.
The story is that the creators of South Park met Mel Gibson at a party some years back and concluded he was crazy. They would go on to do a show with his character in it. This was awhile back. Here is a clip:
Looks like they had him figured out.
I don’t believe that any of these tapes, of a private conversation(s), should have ever been made public, period.
Certainly, release them to a lawyer and law enforcement, but not to the public where they are used to prosecute him in the media.
I am in no way defending what ‘seems’ to be his wild, very likely criminal, reckless, threatening and foolish behavior, but quite frankly, this is none of the public’s or media’s business until it’s been fairly adjudicated in a court of law.
I could be wrong, but I think there used to be a belief in the country that one is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law... and it seems to me that there were also some rules of evidence and other such stuff. But heck, maybe I’m just too old fashion in this world of personal destruction.... at all cost.
Those that commit domestic violence should be dealt with swiftly and harshly, but by the courts, not the damn media.
If this guy ASSAULTED her, regardless of the circumstances, he’s nothing but a lowlife. NO WOMAN or man, should tolerate such behavior, because all too often the victim ends up dead or lives an unhappy life of physical and mental pain and abuse. They become slaves kept in a prison.
Having said all of that, and while I love his artistic abilities, I hope he, as well as his wife see justice, but that becomes difficult, if even possible, when the world has already judged you.
Maybe Mel’s rant were outtakes from a movie script rehearsal and she dubbed in her side....
radaronline has pics of her broken teeth, right after he supposedly hit her. Weird that there was no soft tissue damage at all. It looks like her veneers were pried off. I’m withholding judgement for now.
Very possible to do with all of the moves and interview he has done to piece together whatever you wanted him to say. I thought listening to the lastest tapes that something did not sound right almost like what used to happen in school with older reel film tapes when you had to repair one.
Mel has a billion dollars. He can pay someone to analyze them.
I won’t be losing any sleep over this.

A Los Angeles judge has ordered Mel Gibson to hand over his lethal weapons — on the same day a photo was released of what Gibson’s gal pal claims is her with busted front teeth courtesy of Gibson.
According to the ruling made at Thursday’s secret court hearing, the psycho screen star must surrender all the firearms he owns, as the nasty custody battle he’s waging with his Russian baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, continues, RadarOnline reported yesterday.
