Oksana Grigorieva has avoided speaking to the press during her merciless custody battle with Mel Gibson -- until now. Like many other media-shy celebs before her, Grigorieva has reportedly decided to give an exclusive interview to Oprah Winfrey. Apparently, Winfrey was vying with 60 Minutes to speak to the mother of Gibson's baby daughter -- but really, who could turn down the Queen of Daytime in her final season?
If the interview happens as planned, musician Grigorieva will open up about her short-lived relationship with Gibson, 54, and the alleged physical and emotional abuse she suffered. We imagine that Winfrey will also want to get the full back story on those shocking audio tapes of Gibson threatening his then-girlfriend.
Given all of the legal battles surrounding Grigorieva and Gibson, though, we wonder how much she'll actually be permitted to say. The web of lies surrounding their relationship keeps getting more and more tangled. At first, the audio tapes seemed to be a pretty clear indictment of Gibson -- but we learned last week that Grigorieva was paid $15 million to destroy those tapes, meaning that she may be guilty of extortion. The most recent bombshell, revealed Monday by TMZ, is that Grigorieva signed a child custody agreement back in May, legally granting unsupervised joint custody to Gibson. If she thought that Lucia was safe with him in May, why did she change her mind just one month later? Grigorieva doesn't have the answer; she claims that she didn't know about the custody agreement.
We're interested to finally hear Grigorieva's side of the story on The Oprah Winfrey Show. As for Gibson, we're guessing it will be a long time before he sits down for an interview.
