Mel Gibson uses the ‘N’ word, calls ex-girlfriend a whore

1 Comment

The two-minute clip of Mel Gibson using a racial slur and calling his ex-girlfriend a “whore” during an argument are unlikely to be the last ugly words the public hears from the actor., the celebrity website that posted the recording Friday, says there’s more where that came from.

For 10 days, the site has posted written transcripts of secret recordings it said Gibson’s former girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva, had made. The snippet released Friday is the first audio of the confrontations that have been aired.

The clip includes segments in which a voice that sounds distinctly like the Academy Award winner is heard telling Grigorieva that she is dressing too provocatively and that it would be her fault if she were raped. He uses the N-word, a racial epithet, at one point, and the recording is laced with his profanity.

Shortly after the posting, entertainment news outlets reported that Gibson had been dropped by talent agency William Morris Endeavor, although that decision appeared to have been made days ago. The agency did not return phone calls and an e-mail seeking comment.
David Perel, RadarOnline’s founder and executive vice president, told The Associated Press that the site had heard “a substantial portion” of 30 minutes of recordings Grigorieva had made. Perel said more audio clips will likely be released in coming days.

The site reported the 40-year-old made the recordings because she was afraid Gibson might harm her.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating allegations that Gibson was involved in a domestic violence incident with Grigorieva, with whom he has an 8-month-old daughter. That inquiry is expected to take several weeks before it reaches prosecutors, who will decide whether to press charges.

Gibson’s camp, for its part, remained silent Friday about the recording. Spokesman Alan Nierob did not issue a comment on the audio’s contents.

Grigorieva’s attorney, Marci Levine, also did not return a phone message seeking comment.

It is the second high-profile incident in which Gibson has been accused of using slurs and degrading women. He apologized after his drunken driving arrest in 2006 after it was revealed by another celebrity website, TMZ, that he had made anti-Semitic and sexist comments.

In the recordings released Friday, the actor is heard criticizing Grigorieva, 40, for the way she dresses. He accuses her of lying to him about having breast implants.

“They just look stupid,” Gibson tells her at one point in the recording. “Keep them if you want to. They look like a Vegas bitch, a Vegas whore.”

“You look like a (expletive) bitch in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of (N-word), it will be your fault,” Gibson is heard telling Grigorieva. “You provoked it. You are provocatively dressed.”
