Mel Gibson made extortion claims against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Of course, this is after she filed a domestic abuse charge against him.

According to Gibson, Grigorieva tried to extort money from him using the recordings of him. He says that she threatened to leak the tapes if he didn’t pay up. He also says that she falsely accused him of domestic abuse.

The investigation is still going on and prosecutors will likely have the case later this month.

Apparently the tapes were indeed leaked to the press, and RadarOnline.com posted them today. The voice on the tapes sounds a lot like Mel Gibson. He actually allegedly ranted using racial slurs and curse words.

Gibson and Grigorieva are in a custody battle over their daughter, Lucia who is only 8 months old.

I have not been impressed with Mel Gibson of late. He has been disappointing in the past few years. His ex-girlfriend may have tried to extort him. However, I don’t think that excuses his crazy rant to her if the voice is indeed his. What do you think about Mel Gibson’s extortion claims?
