What A He Said, She Said Mess

Yesterday, you guys learned that Mel Gibson’s girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, got a restraining order against him because of Mel’s penchant for physical violence.  Mel’s people are denying it, saying that Oksana was still with him after he beat her up in January (because everyone knows that domestic abuse victims always immediately leave their abusers), but Oksana’s people have rebutted by saying that Mel promised her he would get some help, and that’s why she stayed with him.

Oksana’s people also say that she is concerned about the safety of the daughter she had with Mel, and that she didn’t let Mel see her on Father’s Day because of that.  The baby is almost eight months old, and Oksana thinks that the little girl would be “at risk” if left alone with Mel, but nobody’s saying anything more specific.

Oksana has also said that Mel’s threats continued after the incident in January, and that she is scared for her life.  Mel’s people are saying that Oksana is just lying to get some of Mel’s money.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m going to go ahead and believe Oksana on this one.  I mean, Mel Gibson doesn’t exactly have a reputation for being a calm and collected guy.
