Oksana Grigorieva wrote an email to one her lawyers detailing an abusive encounter with her ex actor Mel Gibson. She sent this email just hours after the incident. She claims Mel punched her in the head twice while she was holding their two-month-old daughter Lucia.
Here are some excerpts from her email.
“He hit me in the face with a fist and broke two of my front teeth, as well as he was choking me with his elbow and squishing my face down with the palm of his hand,” Oksana wrote her lawyer shortly after midnight January 7.
“He went completely violent while I was holding our two month old baby crying in my arms,” she wrote to the lawyer.
“He yelled so loudly in my face for 15 minutes at least. I was trying to run away outside, begging him to stop.”
“He yelled even louder and kept spitting in my face,” she wrote to her lawyer, according a source familiar with the investigation.
“Then he kicked us out yelling and screaming.”
“I’m asking for your help. I don’t know what to do right now. The scariest thing is the safety of my children,” she wrote.
“He also threatened to take Lucia away from me, because he can. Because he has money!
“I’m not sure what to do. He is a father to my Lucy. But I have forgiven so much that he probably thinks I’ll just take it.”
Oksana claims that the incident was prompted when Mel was trying to quit his addiction to cigarettes.
“When that happens, he turns into an ax murderer, as he calls it himself,” she said.
She then detailed how she was at a basketball game and Mel scared the babysitter.
She called him a “psycho” and described how she asked him not to make so much noise.
But Mel began screaming and Oksana wrote: “He is seriously scaring both of my children, especially Lucia.”
Mel is being investigated by the LA County Sheriff’s Department on charges of child abuse and domestic violence. They are also investigating Oksana on Mel’s charges that she was extorting him.
