Mere hours after allegedly being struck in the face and choked by Mel Gibson while she held their infant daughter, Oksana Griogorieva asked for help and described the terrifying attack in a distraught middle-of-the-night email to her lawyer, according to RadarOnline. The written cry for help is now evidence for investigators looking into the alleged Jan. 6 attack, and if verified, it could further support domestic abuse claims that the mother of two already reported to authorities.
"He hit me in the face with a fist and broke two of my front teeth, as well as he was choking me with his elbow and squishing my face down with the palm of his hand," Oksana wrote in the email sent to her her lawyer not long after midnight on Jan. 7.
"He even hit Lucia,” she adds.
The letter also states: "He went completely violent while I was holding our 2-month-old baby crying in my arms." And she writes that, after he hit her, "he yelled so loudly in my face for 15 minutes at least. I was trying to run away outside, begging him to stop....Then he kicked us out yelling and screaming.”
Grigorieva pleads, "I’m asking for your help. I don’t know what to do right now. The scariest thing is the safety of my children....He also threatened to take Lucia away from me, because he can. Because he has money!"
"I’m not sure what to do. He is a father to my Lucy. But I have forgiven so much that he probably thinks I’ll just take it.”
Begging the lawyer to give her a call, she wrote: "I’m lost."
We're almost lost for words trying to imagine how the Oscar-winning actor and director, once the toast of the town in Hollywood, could ever repair his public image after such damning evidence of his violent anger problem.
Do you believe Mel Gibson will ever acknowledge accusations of domestic violence, as Chris Brown once did, or try to deny them? Chime in below!
