This just in: Mel Gibson dropped by his talent agency

Mel Gibson has been dropped by his talent agency. A rep for the William Morris Endeavor agency confirmed to the L.A. Times that it is no longer working with the Oscar winner, whose personal life has gone up in flames with tapes of a profane, ethnic-slur-laced rant against his ex-girlfriend leaked to RadarOnline.com. Sources told the Times, though, that the agency's bad feelings go back to Gibson's last profane, ethnic-slur-laced rant, during his 2006 drunk-driving arrest -- but that they kept him out of respect to longtime agent Ed Limato, until Limato's death last week.

Dear Sydney8 who says she thought that Mel Gibson was a nice guy coz he got along so well with Danny Glover in those police movies. Let me explain this like you are 3 years old because clearly your maturity level is around that age. You see Lethal Weapon (that police movie) was a fictional story. Kinda like Mary Poppins was a fictional account of a woman who can fly via an umbrella - sadly umbrellas make poor modes of transportation.

Mel Gibson is an actor and he is paid a lot of money to make you believe he is a "nice guy" or a "tough guy" or a "sensitive guy". Unfortunately the people Mel Gibson portrays and the person he is in real life are not the same. Unfortunately, as you so clearly indicate, many people have a hard time discerning what is real and what is not real. My advice to you is never watch Mary Poppins as you may very well think it OK to jump from a 3rd story window with your umbrella in hand expecting to be transported to and fro...on 2nd thought why don't you give me your email address and I will send you a free rental code for Redbox and you can rent Mary Poppins tonight.

After hearing this lunatics rantings, I can't help but think of what his wife put up with all the years she was married to this PIG! I would have killed him long ago!

Mel Gibson has over 20 yrs in the business his friends who are all nationalities and race have supported Mel fully. The last incident with police showed Mel apologized to the policemen for his drunken speech soon after he said it; it on the police report. This woman is hit by a man her teeth fall out but months later she travels the world with him? Oksana is in the music business anyone that can record a conversation on the phone can also have friends alter the conversation in order to black mail a man who has moved on. She makes Heather Mc Cartney look like a saint! Not that Mel is a saint he has his own demons but to call his racist is wrong; his best friend is Danny Glover; Danny guessed spotted in Maverick because of that life long friendship. Oksana is a woman with only a children from rich men for income and she is pulling all the tricks to get more money for herself and could careless for her childs father and how this looks for that baby girl later in life to have a father called a racist. She wanted her revenge on a man who did not want her anymore & not the best welfare for her child's future. She did this not out of fear but greed and her black mail scheme backfired so she leaked the tapes to hurt Mel; but really who is she hurting. An innocent baby girl and all the other woman who are abused and not beleived.

So glad someone is finally revealing Mel's true character. There is supposed to be new information on Mel tonight on the show "Issues." Issues was one of the first to cover this recording with radar. They have something more tonight.

Shouldn't Mel rush to his nearest tailor to be measured for a storm trooper's costume?

For some time now I have found it interesting when considering the bank of movies that Mel Gigson has to his credit, how many involve graffic violence and blood-letting/smearing scenes. Ransom, The Patriot, all Leathel Weapon, Brave Heart and how many others. Whether he wrote or directed or produced I don't know, but he sure acted the scenes well. Did the emotion he portrayed just come naturally to him? It would be interesting to see a compilation of his 'blood' scenes.
He is reported to be a very devout Catholic, which means that he has been taught to believe that he is truly drinking blood when he attends a Mass ritual. Wine is the actual substance used in the ritual. Could there be a relation between his purported alchol abuse and the apparant infatuation with blood?

Apparently the rigors of Mel's Opus Dei fundamentalism haven't helped him in weathering his mid-life crisis in Tinseltown.

Dear fox_vzwsoc,

I think you may be suffering from an IRONY deficiency. The IRONY was certainly clear to me in Sydney8's pithy comments. Surely you were not seriously thinking she believed what she was writing? Say it ain't so :)

To use your mode of explanation, "sometimes people say things that are ludicrous on their face, just to point out how ridiculous a person or a thing is".

I just can't help to wonder, on both those tapes. What is the fight about ? What is he angry about?

Is he not feeling the love from here? Has she denied him something ? There has to be a reason to why he is angry at her. There seem to be no attempts by anyone to explain this.

That rant sounds to me like Mel has a substance abuse problem, and not just alcohol. Sounds like he's been up for 2 days on a coke binge. His career is toast.

It's a bit ironic that nowadays we boycott real artists for being scumbags, and make talentless people reality tv stars for same reason. I'm on Mel Gibson's side on this one. Why are we measuring artists by their character rather than their work. He's not babysitting my kids, he's making movies. If TMZ was around the sixteenth century, the Mona Lisa would not be hanging at the Louvre today.

It doesn't matter, short of eating a live baby on TV these Hollywood types write their own ticket. Cable TV runs their movies and the get paid, they never go to jail for anything...rape, wife abuse, drunken driving,murder, robbery...America just coddles it "star" criminals. It's actually hilarious how brain dead the American public really is.

I think Mel may have finally gone too far. Yes, it looks like this woman taped him without his knowledge, BUT SHE DIDN'T PUT THAT HATEFUL CRAP HE WAS SPEWING INTO HIS MOUTH. she merely recorded what he ACTUALLY ACTS LIKE WHEN HE THINKS NO ONE ELSE CAN HEAR HIM THREATENING THE MOTHER OF HIS CHILD. think about that for a minute. If your dad talked to your mom that way...well whose side would you be on? he is an alcoholic and needs treatment but if is a much bigger problem with anger management that he needs to do alot of work on. if he will hit the mother while she holds a three month old baby...well it won't be long until he hits the child as well. and even if he never does hit the child, how awful for her to hear her father talk to her mother that way. He should be in jail with the rest of the wife-beating scum of the earth men who think it is okay to speak to other people like they are less than human. how sad tha the has turned into such a disgusting excuse for a man. I will boycott anything and EVERYTHING he does from now on. for shame!

I have to question ex-girlfriend Oksana's motives only because she sounds way too calm on the phone. I'm not approving Mel Gibson's actions by any means but something is amiss here, completely. It's as if she said or did something to piss Mel off and awaited his phone call to tape him. Secondly, Mel's manager said she never lost her teeth or consciousness and we've not seen a hospital or doctor's report. We can however tell it is Mel Gibson's voice and he's way too angry enraged and out of control. That being said, he needs mental health intervention now, but also Osksana isn't a saint. For someone who's life's being threatened there's not an ounce of fear in her voice, almost staged. Nicole Simpson before her death called police immediately and had real fear heard in her voice.... There is something not right on this tape, it just doesn't fit or she would have contacted police immediately if she feared for her and her child's life. She knew exactly what she was doing. She's sick and needs help too, and...if she really feared him she wouldn't sound so calm on phone. Any woman in that situation will tell you that she would have hung up and been much afraid. She provoked him in some way to make him so furious, yet she is so calm, so cool and so collected. Something smells of b.s. here.

When will these stupid men ever learn? They leave their wives or women who loved them for women who bring them nothing but misery. Aah...the power of the p*&&y. How you like me now?

Posted by: rockymtncyn | July 13, 2010 6:31 PM | Report abuse

Well Oksana, if you weren't scared on the phone while taping Mel, you better freaking be afraid now. This type of rage is nothing to play with and you have a child to think about. Get a RESTRAINING ORDER and...24-hour security. Your little plan may have backfired. Seriously, go someplace where u and the baby will be safe!
