Grigorieva Says She Feared For Her Life

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva says she feared for her life and thought the Academy Award winner might kill her during a fight earlier this year.

The 40-year-old musician also tells People magazine in a story published Wednesday that she did not leak audio purportedly of Gibson in a series of racist and misogynistic rants.

Grigorieva offers her account of a January argument during which she claims Gibson hit and choked her.

She didn’t report the alleged abuse until months later, and a potential case against the actor-director has been turned over to prosecutors.

Authorities also are investigating Grigorieva for alleged extortion.

The former couple have been locked in a bitter custody battleover their infant daughter.

    This is about money! The girl wants to get paid and Mel has the money. I don’t want to say something out of the ordinary but, she’s young, she knows she will still get some action. And she still wants to get paid. And with the kid she will! Mel is too popular to do what she is saying (As far as killing her.) Especially, since everyone is looking. If this is your kid, take care of the kid!!
