Looks like the tables are turning on Oksana Grigorieva. This time, Mel Gibson's ex is the subject of a police investigation, surrounding claims that the actor's baby mama may have tried to extort money from him.
"Extortion allegations were brought to our attention [and] we're looking into it," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore told People.com.
Gibson, 54, has claimed that Grigorieva, with whom he is currently in a bitter, public battle, threatened to leak recordings of his racist and threatening rants to the media. A source says Gibson was planning to present evidence to detectives proving Grigorieva broke the law. The actor says the Russian musician also made false claims about him being abusive to her and their infant daughter, Lucia.
But Grigorieva's rep insists his client is not under a full investigation. "(Police) "looking into something is very different than launching a formal investigation," he says.
