It was reported earlier today that Mel Gibson has gotten a restraining order against his girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva and now other sources are saying that it was actually the other way around. Oksana claims that Mel has been physically violent toward her and that the restraining order is in place for her protection.
We’ve learned Oksana’s lawyers went to the family law court in downtown L.A. last Monday for an emergency hearing, and told the judge that Mel allegedly got violent with her — two sources say Oksana claimed Mel was “extremely violent.”
Sources tell TMZ the judge issued a restraining order prohibiting Mel from having any contact with Oksana. We’re told the next day, Mel’s lawyers went back to court and got the order modified so Mel could see their daughter.
We’re told Mel also got a restraining order against Oksana, but only with respect to prohibiting her from releasing certain information.
A source connected with Mel Gibson scoffed at Oksana’s allegations, claiming the alleged incidents occurred this past January and she traveled with him afterwards — all over the world. As the source put it, “In these cases, when somebody cries wolf, the judge is mandated to assume there’s a wolf, until a full hearing can be held.”
OK, so things Mel Gibson has been accused of: Racism, antisemitism, sexism and now domestic abuse. Yes, that’s a Godly man, indeed.
We’ll keep you posted as this story continues to unfold.
