Mel Gibson appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night and surprisingly, he willingly brought up his most recent secretly recorded meltdown.
He joked about it repeatedly, no less.
The now-infamous Mel Gibson rant, in which he RAGED at Joe Eszterhas (and was taped in his own home, unwittingly, by Eszterhas’ son), was over the top, he conceded. Still, Mel believes his privacy was violated and his actions were “justified.” Why?
Eszterhas’ script for The Maccabees was non-existent, then awful, Mel said, proceeding to slam the screenwriter for sellingMore >
Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who was collaborating with Mel Gibson on his ill-fated film The Maccabees before claiming in a letter Mel Gibson hates Jews, says he’s got proof that he witnessed the latest rage-filled rants from the troubled star.
His teenage son secretly recorded much of it, Eszterhas says.
“A lot of the stuff is on tape,” he tells TMZ. What stuff?
He says the recordings were made in Costa Rica by his son Nick, though he would not say if the following alleged comments by Mel were captured:
- “I want to f**k her in the ass and stab her while I’m doing it.” – on his
Mel Gibson is totally pulling Justin Bieber duty this week.
Fighting paternity claims of his own, Gibson has “no connection at all” to Laura Bellizzi, a random woman who claims he impregnated her over the summer, his rep said.
Alleged “friends” of hers say that they dated over the summer and frequently attended parties together. Whether or not that’s true, Mel’s denying he did this …
Former reality star Laura Bellizzi says Mel Gibson knocked her up. That old guy creepin’ in the pic? We have no idea who that is, but he does not look pleased.

Robert Downey Jr. was honored at the American Cinematheque Awards last night, as numerous colleagues and friends made speeches in honor of the Oscar nominee and acknowledged the substance abuse-laden journey he took to arrive at the top of Hollywood.
But when it came time to take the stage himself, Downey shifted the focus to the man who introduced him: Mel Gibson.
“Mel and I have the same lawyer, same publicist and same shrink,” Downey said of his Air America co-star. “I couldn’t get hired and he cast me. He said if I accepted responsibility – he called it hugging the cactus – longMore >
Mel Gibson is being accused of an attempted assault in Costa Rica, and remarkably, Oksana Grigorieva seems to have nothing to do with this story at all.
Nader Sharif claims Mel bilked him out of $200,000 by cajoling him into investing in a recycled rubber company. Obviously, who didn’t see THAT coming?
Sharif filed a lawsuit in June, in which he also claims Mel Gibson tried to mow him down in July, after the two ran into each other at a Costa Rican bakery.
Mel Gibson accused of violence? Who’d have guessed!

It finally is all over between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, who settled their custody dispute in court. But there is a lingering disagreement on one point.
Oksana’s lawyers touted her music credentials in court, but Mel made it clear (a bit more eloquently than on his taped rants) he deeply regrets supporting her career.
Mel says he spent a small fortune to produce a CD and video, and even paid for a studio for the “horrible” singer he’s now “embarrassed” to have promoted.
As he said in one of the tapes, she just can’t hang. Take a listen below and see if you think Oksana sucks atMore >
Greek model Stella Mouzi says she’s not Mel Gibson’s new girlfriend, despite the fact that she’s hung with the actor several times and “hit it off.”
Eager to set the record straight after tabloid reports declared her Gibson’s new fling, Mouzi tells People that there’s nothing romantic at work.
“I came to the U.S. from Greece a few months ago and was charmed by the American hospitality. I have made many new friends including Mel Gibson, with whom I share merely a friendly acquaintance,” Stella says.
Mouzi also addresses reports that she is a bondage/fetish model or “goth chick,” as someMore >
With all the drama, scandal and legal skirmishes surrounding Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, it’s easy to forget that the two have a beautiful daughter.
Hopefully, the feuding couple’s icy relationship will continue to thaw in the coming months and years for the sake of Lucia, an adorable 18-month-old.
Here’s Mel and his youngest child (he has six sons and one daughter with his wife, Robyn, from whom he is separated) at a Malibu recreational center:

According to reports, Mel Gibson has done exactly what he’s supposed to be doing to complete probation in his domestic violence case – and then some.
Gibson’s lawyer, Blair Berk, met with Judge Stephanie Sautner (yes, also the judge in the Lindsay Lohan saga) to present proof that Gibson is compliant.
The troubled actor has paid his fines, performed his community service by visiting a Guatemalan hospital, and is earning high marks from a psychiatrist.

Mel Gibson spoke with children born with deformities at a hospital in Guatemala this week, a visit that was part of his community service.
The actor’s publicist, Alan Nierob, said that Gibson has been in the Central American nation for days working with Mending Kids International.
Nierob said Gibson is spending more time in Guatemala than the 16 hours of community service that a plea deal calls for him to perform.
In fact, Mel has been active with the organization long before the no contest pleas to striking former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva in 2010.
He requested, and was granted, theMore >
The infamous Mel Gibson tapes are about to become irrelevant.
Oksana Grigorieva’s lawyer, Dan Horowitz, told the judge in the couple’s custody case this a.m. that he may not even introduce the tirades into evidence.
Horowitz backing off the tapes comes a few weeks after he told the judge that Oksana would be dropping domestic violence allegations against Gibson.
Come here often?
The Mel Gibson tapes could surface if Oksana files a civil lawsuit against Mel, but it’s starting to look iffy at best that such a lawsuit will even be filed.

Mel Gibson’s latest mug shot has been released. We didn’t expect the guy to be happy after being booked and fingerprinted, but still. Lighten up man!
Just hours after making his way into the El Segundo P.D. to be processed following his no contest plea to battery last week, this booking photo leaked.
Especially compared to Mel’s previous effort, it’s kinda scary …
Mel was released right after this mug shot was taken last night.
It’s rather nondescript as celebrity mug shots go. Not unlike the resolution to Mel’s criminal case, it’s a bit anticlimactic. Sadly for him, more dramaMore >
Despite Mel Gibson’s no contest plea to battery last week, Oksana Grigorieva plans to file a lawsuit alleging battery, emotional distress and defamation.
Sources close to Gibson say he will wage legal war if Oksana does so. Forget settling out of court … it is ON like legal Donkey Kong this time around.
The actor will “gladly” file his own lawsuit against the woman he says put a $15 million price on the Mel Gibson tapes in return for keeping quiet.
It could be just beginning for Mel and Oksana …
Oksana’s lawyer, Daniel Horowitz, said “our position hasn’t changed” regarding Mel’s noMore >
The L.A. County District Attorney filed a single misdemeanor battery charge against Mel Gibson today. The actor, as expected, pleaded no contest.
The misdemeanor specifically targets someone who cohabits or has a child with the alleged victim, but is less severe than felony domestic abuse.
Mel will not receive jail time for the alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, but will continue to undergo counseling and be on 36 months’ probation.
One of the terms of probation – he cannot use violence against anyone. Mel may continue to have “peaceful contact” with Oksana going forward.

Oksana Grigorieva has just won $300,000 from ex-boyfriend Mel Gibson, however that money will not go into her pockets, but instead be handed over to hear team of nearly 40 lawyers.
Oksana’s lawyers requested the money which was granted by Judge Scott Gordon who told Gibson’s team that the money must be handed over immediately.
The new amount of money brings Grigorieva’s total lawyer haul from Gibson to a mind boggling number just over $1 million, quite a bit of money to spend when fighting for child support of one child.
