Oksana Spills About Mel Gibson on 'Larry King Live'
By Christo Varghese Posted Nov 18th 2010 06:10AM
Oksana Grigorieva told Larry King on Wednesday night that Mel Gibson hit her, choked her and waved a gun at her during a violent encounter in January.
Oksana recalled on 'Larry King Live' that on "Jan. 6 [of this year] the beating took place. Mel actually assaulted me while I was holding the baby in my arms ... I ran into my son's bedroom and told him, 'Mel's crazy.' "
See the interview:
Oksana said that her 12-year-old son, Alexander, hid behind the bed as Oksana stood with her daughter Lucia, "like a mother protecting her cubs."
Gibson came into the room and struck her twice, she said. When Larry asked if Mel was drunk, Oksana said he was not. "He hit me, and choked me in front of my son and brandished a gun at me."
King asked her, "Why did you stay with him?" Grigorieva replied, "That was a mistake. I stayed a little bit too long."
Oksana admitted to forgiving and getting back with Mel at one point: "I gave him the last chance. He asked me for the last chance. He begged. He cried. He cried on his knees. What am I supposed to do?"
When asked by the talk show host why she taped the phone calls with Gibson, Oksana said, "I started taping it around 11 o'clock because I thought, 'I'm actually not going to live through the night. I'm actually not going to live through the night and I wanted my mother to be able to prove that if I'm dead that this is who did it."
Mel Gibson, on the other hand, enjoyed a night out with his ex-wife Robyn on Tuesday, according to The Daily Mail. In a show of Gibson family unity he and his former wife of nearly 30 years were among the guests at their son Milo's 21st birthday at a restaurant in Hollywood. News came out this week that Mel admitted to slapping, not punching, Oksana in a fit of hysteria.
