Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva File Restraining Orders -- Is Violence the Reason?


Mel GibsonThere were reports yesterday that Mel Gibson filed for a restraining order against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Today we've learned that she's filed one against him, alleging domestic violence.

The two were together for about a year before calling it quits this past April. At the time, she said:

"We have split up, suddenly and recently ... Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon."

It seems that Mel Gibson's restraining order was filed to make sure she didn't speak up about the details of their relationship, and now we can see why. 

According to Oksana, Mel was "extremely violent" with her in January of this year. A source close to her has confirmed that there have been both physical and non-physical acts that could be considered domestic violence. As a result, Oksana filed the restraining order to stop Mel from contacting her.

The former couple has a 7-month-old daughter, but it's unclear at the moment how the restraining orders affect Mel Gibson's access to her.

It's always difficult to hear about cases of alleged domestic violence, but hopefully the two will be able to make peace and move forward with the future of their daughter in mind.

Are you surprised to hear about these allegations?

Mel Gibson has a serious problem. I'm not at all surprised by this. So sad.

I think the man has lost it completely. one thing reported about him, ok maybe a lie. 2 things? still maybe a run of bad luck...but this man has bad story after bad story and I think most of its true.

 I was so angry at Mr Gibson as to what he did to his wife and kids. I'm a female 43 year old woman. I also have self respect  and accountability and this woman made her bed. After the Jay Leno thing I never thought I would be on Mel's side. This woman is getting what she gets. She broke up a family! She is a gold digger!!!!! She is just mad that she did not get her way, He did not want to marry her or even still be with her so instead of thinking of her kids she put her wallet over her kids well being.She should have blew him she is a whore. When you cheat and steal to get what you want this is what happens. This man is in need of help and I don't think these tapes are going to help him. I'm praying for him I hope he gets back to the man that had such passion for Jesus. GOOD LUCK MEL!!!

In my honest opinion there are always two sides to every story and that if it is not our own, it'snot our business lol
