Breaking Mel Gibson news! While dining at Madeo restaurant in West Hollywood this week, Mel was informed by his waiter that they only served breadsticks on the weekends. So Mel allegedly took matters into his own hands and bribed the waiter to run down the block and buy him $100 worth of breadsticks. Why? Our guess is as good as yours. “He just loves breadsticks!” a witness theorized. We’re not totally satisfied with that explanation, so we’ve come up with a few of our own. After the jump some ideas about what Mel might be doing with all that bread. [In Touch]

Mel Gibson reached out to Whitney Houston and tried to help the superstar overcome her personal issues at the height of her drug troubles, according to a new report.
The actor previously came to the aid of Britney Spears following her public meltdown in 2008 and offered up his estate in Costa Rica as a refuge for the pop star to recover from her struggles away from the spotlight.
Now TMZ.com reports Gibson also attempted to come to the rescue of Houston while she battled an addiction to cocaine, marijuana and other drugs in the early 2000s. Read more…
Mel Gibson has finally opened up about the explosive audio recordings between himself and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva that leaked onto the Internet last summer, inspiring a backlash many believe has killed the Oscar winner’s career.
“I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period. I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited,” Gibson tells Deadline. “You have to put it all in the proper context of being in an irrationally, heated discussion at the height of a breakdown, trying to get out of a really unhealthy relationship. It’s one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and doesn’t represent what I truly believe or how I’ve treated people my entire life.” Read more… Keep reading »
Prosecutors are ready to file criminal charges of domestic violence against Mel Gibson, RadarOnline.com reports. Thank goddess: I was afraid Mel Gibson would get a slap on the wrist, typical Hollywood justice-style! Multiple law enforcement sources have told the gossip blog that it’s “almost inevitable” Mel will be charged by the Los Angeles District Attorney for roughing up his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva (who is also the mother of his baby daughter, Lucia). Oksana claims that last January, Mel punched her in the head while she was holding Lucia, allegedly bruising her and knocking two veneers off her front teeth. Radar claims in a sworn declaration for the case, Mel did confess to hitting Oksana — only he claimed in a sworn declaration to only have slapped her to “‘bring her back to reality” when she was being “hysterical.” Keep reading »
“I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”

It pains me to say this, but the trailer for Mel Gibson‘s new film, “The Beaver,” directed by his BFF Jodie Foster, doesn’t look terrible. Mel plays a father and husband who goes under the psychological care of a prescription beaver puppet to “put some distance between himself and the negative aspects of his personality.” It looks like it addresses how a loved one’s mental illness affects a family — a subject that IRL racist, sexist, death threat-making Mel knows all too much about. Will Mel’s abusive craziness towards ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva affect whether or not you watch his movies? Assuming, of course, you watched Mel Gibson movies in the first place.

Mel Gibson just got ickier, if that’s possible. In a court document defending himself from his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva‘s claim that he beat her while she was holding their baby daughter, Lucia, Mel also addressed the infamous phone calls she recorded where he hurls abuse at her. Really, you see, Mel’s outrage was Oksana’s fault. He states in the court filing, “I felt that Oksana repeatedly attempted to push my emotional ‘buttons’ to provoke me during the calls; of course, I had no idea at the time that she was taping them.” Oh, so if Mel had known he was being taped when she was “provoking” him, he might not have said “You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n**gers it will be your fault,” or threatened to kill her and bury her in the rose garden? Got it. While I have no doubt that Oksana manipulated Mel into making these embarrassing racist, misogynist statements on tape, the dude just refuses take responsibility for himself like a grownup. Maybe after the beaver movie, his next role should be as a domestic abuser. He’s got it down pat. [Radar Online] Keep reading »
