Mel Gibson Temper Tantrum

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva have filed dueling restraining orders against each other -- and Oksana is claiming violence!

Mel Gibson

You may remember the minor scandal of Mel Gibson, a supposedly devout Catholic, divorcing his wife of a gazillion years for Oksana, his Russian mistress who he knocked up with an illegitimate baby. (Jesus does not approve.)

Oksana Grigorieva gave birth to the couple's daughter in October 2009. The pair announced their split in April 2010, and now we might know why -- Mel's nasty temper.

According to TMZ, the pianist's lawyers went to an LA family court for an emergency hearing to request the order of protection, telling the judge that Mel became violent with her. In fact, two different sources say he became "extremely violent."

A separate source close to Oksana Grigorieva confirmed the report and said that while the violent incidents happened in January, "There were other acts after January that were not physical but still constituted domestic violence."

Mel Gibson sent his lawyers to the court to request a restraining order of his own -- one preventing Oksana from releasing certain information, ostensibly about this case or their personal relationship.

Sources close to Gibson wonder why, if he was as violent as Oksana claims, she traveled around the world with him afterward. The source said, "In these cases, when somebody cries wolf, the judge is mandated to assume there's a wolf, until a full hearing can be held."

I cannot understand why is everyone against Mel Gibson! I think his openly religious believes are the cause for it. I my self am not into a religion, but the attacks on people who are bothers me a great deal. It is a double standard all around. His movie "Christ" is why so many people started hated poor Mel. I thought Hollywood was so open and welcoming of different views and believes!! (ha-ha-ha) Joke all around. Good luck to all of us!

Mel is not in an exclusive club - there's CHARLIE SHEEN, the entire NFL, half the NBA, ALEC BALDWIN, BOBBY BROWN, ex Prez BILL CLINTON etc. So why the quadruple standard ? Jesus did not approve of killing either - Iraq, Afghanistan and millions of Abortions - say what ?

Mel Gibson is a devout Catholic and he makes mistakes. This is between him and God and yes, Jesus doesn't like sin, that is why He came to take our sins on His back to forgive us. Your article went over the line on poking fun at that issue. What is Mel's first wife's comment on all of this, did she ever file any complaint on Mel regarding abuse...I have not heard of that. I think this man is ging through some tough times and everyone is quick to be his "best friend and hangeron" but now everyone wants to hang him out to dry. Clean up your own backyard before you mess around in someone else's.
