He must have been on medication in the Lethal Weapon movies. This man is unstable. 1000 fold of what he portrayed in those movies. How many times can you spout profanities at your spouse and not even suspect that what you are doing may be used against you? This egotistical maniac is just an idiot. She did set him up but I can see why. She needs people to believe that it's really him that is the nutcase. These tapes prove it and offer her some protection from him. Don't blame her for protecting herself and her daughter.

From what I recall, it did not sound that bad.

Apart from sheiking profanities at her and then threatening to kill her? We must live on differnt planets, you and I.

Listen to the tapes. He's a freakin maniac! I'd be scared too.

From what I recall, it did not sound that bad. He was upset, he was breaking up with her, but I don't remember anything "scary" in it.

At the end of the conversation, didn't he say something about it being OK for her to stay in the house, because of the child.

BTW, I thought she sounded very relaxed though.

"Most people who have never experienced abuse from strong women have no idea."

Which is why I suspect that they are mutually abusive, like those twin stars cannibalizing each other, they will spin around and around, creating a lot of light and heat, eventually collapsing into a black hole.

They need each other's hate. Best to look away from this one.

"Let's hope the breed doesn't last much longer."

Um. Two words. Russell Crowe. The DNA has been passed along.

Most people who have never experienced abuse from strong women have no idea. Some really nutty women can really do physical and mental damage to men. Its just, as men, they dont report such abuse because its embarrassing and so have to deal with it themselves. As well, most men cant understand what goes in the head of a woman that can see a more physical superior being in front them but still lash out physically, even though they have been warned that they could get hurt. Every situation is different. But i truly believe some women have it coming. The real retarded ones that take advantage of the system that protects them (and they know that!) But non of us were there to see what actually went down so we cant really know...

Hard to judge the woman since Mel bashed her teeth in a few times which no woman deserves but it's kind of hard to believe she didn't submit those tapes herself. I mean, who else could have done it ? Who would have hold of someone else's private tapes like this ?

Love Mel. He's the last of a dying breed. My only surprise is that this Russian mail-order bride hasn't accused him of sexually molesting the daughter. If the kid was a few years older, you can bet the Russian would be that would be leveling that charge, too. Mel doesn't have to work, but his comeback movie is already filmed and will probably come out next Summer. It's the one Jodie Foster did. Can't wait to see it.

This makes her story harder to believe.

Not neccessarily. All too often people do not report abuse while they are still involved in a relationship. Some end up dead because of it.

I realize there is a anti-Mel campaign

You might not be aware, but old Mel was the one to start that campaign.

Mel is a has been. If he is an alcoholic, wife beater, racist etc..normal people should BOYCOTT his movies, etc...This guy needs to go to AA and dry out and also go to anger management classes and maybe chant for inner peace.

she didn’t immediately report the violence in part because she didn’t want to humiliate him

BS

“I’m standing up to a bully who is very rich and famous,” she said.

True

She did not report the alleged abuse to authorities until months later, after the couple broke up and became embroiled in a bitter custody dispute over their infant daughter.

This makes her story harder to believe. Anyway, I realize there is a anti-Mel campaign and I am not at all surprised that Helter does not like him.

As far a Mel Gibson, hopefully his career is over and he'll go away. Good riddance to bad rubbish, mate.

Guess the limelight was fading for her, so bring it up again.

"Willing to wage war for a tank of juice..."

Well. I am sure that this will be a never-ending story. I think she should consider herself lucky. She dodged a bullet by breaking up with him, but because she is unable to support herself, they will be doing this dance for the rest of their lives. Something will come up whenever she needs money.

Yeah, I don't know whose side to be on. Guess I'll put the Road Warrior in the DVD player and try to figure it out.
