The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has launched a domestic violence investigation, following reports of an alleged incident between Gibson and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva back in January.
A statement from the Sheriff’s Department says: “An investigation of domestic violence was launched by [Los Angeles Sheriff's] Malibu/Lost Hills station detectives … involving actor Mel Gibson and his former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
“The detective in charge of the investigation is currently gathering information regarding the allegations. Due to the investigation being preliminary in nature, no other information is available at this time.”
RadarOnline reported yesterday that an audio tape exists of Gibson allegedly telling Grigorieva “f*****g deserved” to get hit during a January confrontation.
Gibson’s camp vehemently deny he hit her. I also hear his reps are due to release a statement later today.
