Mel Gibson failed to turn up to his deposition on Friday because he was off gallivanting around the globe, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. The Lethal Weapon star had been booked to answer questions about ex-lover Oksana Grigorieva’s explosive claims that the Oscar winning actor/director punched her in the face twice, leaving her with two broken teeth and a concussion. But on Wednesday – 48 hours before the grilling – lawyers for Mel advised Oksana’s camp he was unavailable to appear for the deposition. Multiple sources confirm to RadarOnline.com that Mel has left the United States.
I don’t know about you, but if I were trying to clear my tarnished name, I would probably stick around for a little while. I’m not sure anyone believes Oksana edited the tapes anyway, but it sure doesn’t make you look any better when you skip town in time for your chance to tell your side of the story. However, Mel Gibson’s only allies right now are Britney Spears and neo-Nazis, so the best advice he’s probably getting is concerning frappuccino flavors and tastefully placed Swastika tattoos.
