Mel Gibson’s Latest Screaming Rant At Ex: Profanity And Death Threats By The Numbers

So. Mel Gibson, you might have heard, has some issues with misogyny and black people. The last alleged leaked audio of Gibson ranting at his ex-girlfriend was damning as hell. But that was kid stuff. The second alleged leaked audio of Gibson screaming — and I mean screaming — profanity and death threats at Oksana Grigorieva is bone chilling.

I don’t recommend listening to Mel Gibson’s Crazy Rant #2 if you’ve just eaten lunch, cuz this shizz is sick. For your convenience, I’ve tallied up “The Passion Of The Christ” director’s dirty words and death threats after the jump. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go get “You should just f**king smile and blow me because I deserve it!” put on a T-shirt. Keep reading »

“Urkel” Star Jaleel White Accused Of Domestic Abuse

No, not Steve Urkel, too! “Family Matters” star Jaleel White has been accused of physically abusing his child’s mother in some very un-Urkel-like behavior. The woman claims two weeks ago, White allegedly punched her in her breasts while they were driving on a highway with their infant in the car. When they arrived home, she claims White slapped her and pushed her into the toilet so hard it broke the tank.

Urkel’s publicist issued the standard denial that all publicists for celebs accused of domestic violence can issue in their sleep: “There was absolutely no battery … no abuse … and the incident never happened. This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name.” We certainly hope this report is untrue. What would Harriette and Carl think of this?

The Latest In Mel Gibson Grossness

The more I hear about Mel Gibson, the more I wish I had the authority to exile him from the planet. Not that I liked him after the whole “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” drunk driving arrest rant. But as the battle between Mel and Oksana Grigorieva heats up over custody of their 8-month-old daughter, Lucia, more and more totally heinous allegations about Mel are coming to light. The latest—that Mel threatened to kill Oksana. Supposedly, he is on tape saying not only, “I am going to come and burn the f**king house down,” but also, “I will bury you in the rose garden.” Keep reading »

France Makes Calling Your Spouse Nasty Names A Crime

The French parliament has approved a hotly debated law that makes verbal abuse—or psychological violence—a criminal offense. Violators could face up to three years in jail and a $93,000 fine. Although it’s difficult to define such behavior that law defines as “repeated acts which could be constituted by words or other machinations, to degrade one’s quality of life and cause a change to one’s mental or physical state.” Letters and email can count here, too.

Mel Gibson’s Split From Oksana Grigorieva Is Getting Ugly

Mel Gibson‘s split from Oksana Grigorieva, the mother of his eighth child, is getting messier quicker than the crucifixion scene in “The Passion of Christ.”

Mel and his wife, Robyn, divorced in April of 2009 after seven kids and 30 years of marriage. Later that month, Mel and Grigorieva first appeared in public; she gave birth to their daughter, Lucia, in October 2009. Mel and Grigorieva split in April 2010 and their breakup has quickly unraveled into a custody dispute and accusations of domestic violence.

Last Monday, Grigorieva filed an emergency restraining order against Mel, alleging he hit her twice in the face and knocked out two of her teeth. The very next day, Mel filed a restraining order against her, which prohibits her from speaking about certain parts of the case. Keep reading »

Quotable: Miley Cyrus Tackles Abusive Relationships With A “Party Song”

“I wrote it for women that feel like they’re stuck in abusive relationships, but ["Liberty Walk"] is a dance song. So you think that must be kind of a sad ballad, but it’s a party song. … It’s about breaking free.”

Miley Cyrus finds the groovy side of domestic violence on her new album, Can’t Be Tamed, which she says is all about “female empowerment.” [MTV] Keep reading »

Maria Arraras’ Domestic Violence 911 Call Transcript Is The Most Infuriating Thing You’ll Read Today

If you don’t watch Telemundo, you might not know the name Maria Celeste Arraras. She appears on “Al Rojo Vivo” on Telemundo and on the “Today” show and she is called the “Katie Couric of Spanish television.” Earlier this week in Today’s Lady News, I reported that on May 28 in Miami, Arraras was allegedly the victim of domestic violence at the hands of her boyfriend. According to The New York Daily News (in an article tastelessly titled “Latina TV Host Maria Celeste Stars In Own Abuse Saga”), a police report of the incident said the boyfriend, Raul Quintana, hit Arraras several times, pulled her by her hair and threw her on the floor.

That alleged assault would be horrifying enough for most women. But the blog Tiger Beatdown has posted a transcript of Arraras’ 911 call to report the alleged incident and the operator’s dismissive treatment of a panicky Arraras is straight-up galling. Like, Amelia actually gasped when she read it. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Margaret Cho Talks Homicidal Exes And Camel Toe

Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with your own awesomeness.

Whether you caught her in the ’90s or in the aughties, Cho is inescapable — and undeniably funny. This summer, she’s releasing her first album of “comedy music,” Cho Dependent, on which she got to perform with the likes of Fiona Apple and Ani DiFranco. Lucky bitch!

Cho was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk to us about stand-up comedy, writing songs about homicidal ex boyfriends and camel toe. Keep reading »

Seattle Man Forced His Pregnant Teen Girlfriend To Sign “Abuse Contract”

What kind of nonsense is this? Police in Seattle say Graydon Smith, 31, had an “abuse contract” with his pregnant 19-year-old girlfriend, stipulating he could beat her anywhere on her body “except on her pregnant belly.” Sick.

The police were called to Smith’s parents’ home on April 28 after the girlfriend reported he’d threatened to kill her. She then told cops Smith had assaulted her before and she believed he would do so in the future because he had made her sign a contract granting him permission to physically abuse her, so long as he stayed away from her pregnant stomach. When reached by a reporter from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Smith — who had a 2003 domestic violence conviction — confirmed the “abuse contract” existed. Keep reading »
