Radaronline published a story today from Oksana Griborieva’s camp claiming that Mel Gibson wanted to kill a Jewish “high-profile Hollywood figure” who had “publicly humiliated” him.
The story is that Mel wanted “Jew blood on his hands,” and planned to strip the man naked, break his kneecaps, and leave him for dead in the desert.
TMZ says that “Hollywood figure” is their very own editor and executive Harvey Levin, but they also think that Oskana’s camp made up this story.
Here’s some of the fishy details:
Oskana’s rep Steve Jaffe told TMZ about this murder plot right after he complained about a TMZ story not being favorable to Oskana.
Jaffe claimed that Mel hired someone to follow Levin to his gym at 4 a.m. in an attempt to kidnap him, but he named the wrong gym.
Mediators who were present say that Oksana never brought out this piece of information when she was negotiating with Mel in May over the $15 million hush package. (She never actually took this package.)
Oskana’s camp claim she called the Sheriff’s Office, but the Sheriff’s Department denies of every receiving notice thatMel Gibson wanted Harvey Levin dead. A rep told TMZ: “We categorically deny that any such information was ever given to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.”
It looks like Mel’s not the only crazy person in this situation. The Mel tapes were over-the-top and gained Oksana a lot of support and sympathy, but making up lies and conspiracy plots isn’t doing her public opinion position any favors.
