Mel Gibson Admits to Slapping, but Not Hitting

Nov 15, 2010

In the world of Mel Gibson, there is a clear line between slapping and hitting, and the one-time beloved actor did not cross it, according to court papers. In a sworn declaration obtained by TMZ, Gibson has admitted to slapping his ex-wife Oksana Grigorieva when she became hysterical during an argument back in January. This would be "The Argument" which ultimately put an end to their relationship and brought about domestic violence allegations. According to Gibson, his side of the story begins with an explosive argument that found Oksana running like a lunatic around their property with their child, while telling him that he'd better stop yelling or he would "make her into a retarded brain damaged idiot." After Oksana refused to hand over the baby, Mel slapped her "in an attempt to bring her back to reality." For those of you at home trying to picture the scene, here's a dramatization of what we imagine took place on that stormy night.
