IS EX- GIRLFRIEND EXTORTING GIBSON?
Sheriff’s detectives in Los Angeles are checking extortion allegations against Mel
Gibson’s ex-girlfriend. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says the agency is looking into whether Russian singer
Oksana Grigorieva may have tried to extort the actor. He declined to offer any other details on the inquiry.
Detectives earlier this month interviewed Grigorieva after she claimed Gibson abused her during an incident in January.
A spokesman for Grigorieva declined comment Wednesday.
Gibson and Grigorieva are locked in a bitter custody dispute over their infant daughter.
No arrests have been made, and neither has been charged with any crimes.
