Is Mel Gibson really guilty of domestic violence, as Oksana Grigorieva claims?
To bolster her claims of domestic violence at the hands of Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva has added a new and heretofore unheard of allegation to the other (false) charges she has made against Mel Gibson.
In her most recent deposition made to the court, Oksana now claims Mel Gibson beat her while having sex, in order to get aroused.
Is this true? Or is this another one of Oksana Grigorieva’s many lies about Mel?
Those who have been closely following this 3-part legal battle (child custody – domestic violence – extortion) between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, know that Oksana has a serious credibility problem.
Unfairly Judged Based on Oksana’s Lies
For months now, Oksana Grigorieva has waged a relentless smear campaign against Mel Gibson – in violation of the original gag order issued by the judge.
Oksana has given numerous interviews that contain conflicting statements and outright lies. See Sifting Through Oksana Grigorieva’s Domestic Violence Lies
Unlike Oksana, Mel Gibson has abided by the judge’s orders to refrain from discussing the case.
At great cost to his reputation, Mel Gibson has maintained his silence, rather than publicly challenge Oksana, or say anything in his own defense. After all, custody of his 1-year-old-daughter is at stake.

The Facts Regarding Oksana’s Grigorieva’s Domestic Violence Claims
1. Mel Gibson Did NOT Punch or Otherwise Assault Oksana Grigorieva or Baby Lucia
Oksana Grigorieva claims Mel Gibson punched her twice while she was holding baby Lucia, bruising the baby’s chin with one of his blows.
Not one of the many versions of Oksana’s domestic violence story bears any resemblance to Mel Gibson version of what happened that night. See What REALLY Happened the Night Oksana Grigorieva Claimed She was Punched by Mel
In a sworn declaration on file with the court, Mel Gibson stated that on the night in question, Oksana was hysterically shaking baby Lucia back and forth like a rag doll with such force that the baby was screaming at the top of her voice, and her little head was being violently shaken from side to side. Lucia was only 2 months old at the time.
Unable to calm Oksana down, and becoming increasingly concerned for baby Lucia’s safety, Mel said he slapped (not punched) Oksana once, to bring her back to her senses, because he feared that if Oksana didn’t stop baby Lucia would be a victim of “shaken baby syndrome.”

There was no punch – only a slap delivered by a worried father to calm a hysterical woman who was dangerously shaking her 2-month-old baby back and forth. See Why Mel Gibson, NOT Oksana Grigorieva, Should Have Custody of Baby Lucia
2. Mel Gibson was Legally Required to Protect Baby Lucia from Oksana
Under a California Child Endangerment penal code, Mel Gibson was required by law protect baby Lucia.
California is said to have a penal code which makes it a crime to willfully allow a child (in your care or custody) to suffer harm, or to have his/her safety or health endangered.
So in addition to his parental obligation as baby Lucia’s father, Mel Gibson also had a legal obligation to intervene in Oksana’s behavior to protect his child. See What REALLY Happened the Night Oksana Grigorieva Claimed She was Punched by Mel
3. 2 Prominent Domestic Violence Groups Have Distanced Themselves from Oksana Grigorieva
It’s very telling that there’s not a single domestic violence support group in anywhere in the United States that supports Oksana’s domestic violence claims.
When Oksana and her attorneys sought to align themselves with local domestic violence organizations in California, they made it clear that they no part of Oksana Grigorieva and her false domestic violence claims.

4. Oksana Continues to Tell Conflicting Versions of Her Domestic Violence Story
Oksana Grigorieva has told so many different versions of what happenedthe night of January 6 when she claims Mel punched and beat her, that she can’t even keep her own stories straight.

The details of the story change with each telling, and new elements are constantly introduced. See Sifting Through Oksana Grigorieva’s Domestic Violence Lies and Oksana Grigorieva’s Domestic Violence Lies on Mel Gibson Exposed by Larry King
5. There is No real Evidence to Support Oksana’s Claims
Oksana submitted fake photos of an injury to baby Lucia’s chin.
A statement from Lucia’s pediatrician says there were no injuries to baby Lucia when she was brought in for a routine examination the day after the alleged incident.
Experts say the pictures of the missing veneers from Oksana’s 2 front teeth are inconsistent with being struck in the mouth. There is no evidence of damage to Oksana’s lips, cheeks, the tissue surrounding her mouth, or any other part of Oksana’s face.
Some experts have even suggested that the damage to Oksana’s front teeth may have been self-inflicted.
The widely publicized “Mel Gibson rants” have been examined by audio experts, who have said that the tapes were edited by Oksana, or someone on her behalf. See Oksana Grigorieva’s Secret Text Message Proves She Leaked Mel Gibson Tapes, and Why
6. The Judge Recently Increased Mel Gibson’s Rights with Baby Lucia
Though Mel and Oksana have joint physical and legal custody of their daughter Lucia. Oksana petitioned the judge to reduce Mel Gibson’s visitation rights.
Instead of decreasing Mel’s visitation rights as Oksana requested, Judge Scott Gordon increased them. And Oksana is the one who ended up with less time. See Mel Gibson – Oksana Grigorieva Custody Update – More Visitation Time for Mel
As a former prosecutor in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, specializing in domestic violence, Judge Gordon has insight into domestic violence situations. If he thought Mel Gibson posed any threat to baby Lucia, he would have discontinued Me’s visitation rights.
Judge Gordon’s recent modification of the custody agreement between Mel and Oksana sends a very powerful message.
Under the terms of the original agreement, Mel and Oksana would have equal , or 50-50 custody when Lucia turned 3 years old. Although Lucia is only 1 year old, Mel Gibson now has custody of baby Lucia for more than 50% of the time.
The modification Judge Gordon made is significant, because it’s a reflection on Oksana Grigorieva as a mother. See Why Mel Gibson, NOT Oksana Grigorieva, Should Have Custody of Baby Lucia
