Oksana Gregorieva Mel Gibson Fifth Mel Gibson audio rant released: Were the tapes edited?Another in the seemingly endless stream of vile and disgusting audio tapes (if you’re counting, this is No. 5) of a screaming, panting Mel Gibson insulting his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva, has just been posted on RadarOnline.

It’s the same old sick song of vicious profanity you’ve heard in the previous tapes. But this recording also hints at money problems for Mel.

]]>asking whether the tapes have been edited in any way — and if so, whether they’d be usable in any court proceedings. Mel’s attorneys claim that they have “concrete forensic evidence” that the tapes are altered, making them inadmissible evidence to support Oksana’s request to remove Mel’s custodial rights to their child. Oksana’s attorneys sound circumspect about this claim: “We are not aware of any presentation Gibson’s lawyers are making, but we are not surprised they would make such unfounded claims.” Both legal teams will be in court Thursday morning (July 15) before a family law judge who may either remove or uphold Mel’s custody claims on the couple’s infant daughter, Lucia. Do you think these tapes have been edited?  Maybe that’s not really Mel Gibson panting and grunting like a wildebeest. Maybe that’s just FX.
