As the drama surrounding Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva continued, the Russian-born musician is going into greater detail about the domestic violence she says she suffered at Gibson’s hands.
Grigorieva, 40, alleges that a livid Gibson, 54, flew off the handle at her on Jan. 6 in the presence of their 1-year-old daughter Lucia and her 13-year-old son Sasha (from a previous relationship with actor Timothy Dalton).
Gibson’s attorneys declined to comment for this story, but they have repeatedly disputed her allegations. The L.A. District Attorney is determining whether to charge Gibson with for domestic violence, while an L.A. sheriff’s investigation is underway as to whether Grigorieva tried to extort millions from the actor in exchange for keeping explosive audiotapes between the two private.
