The latest twist of the Mel Gibson saga occurred at the weekend when Los Angles sheriff investigators interviewed the Hollywood star. But they were not quizzing Gibson over the many accusations made by his former Russian girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, instead they discussed the extortion claims made by the actor.
Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore confirmed "We did talk to Mel Gibson on Sunday. It had nothing to do with the domestic violence investigation. It only concerned the allegations of extortion".
The Oscar winning actor submitted physical evidence including emails and text messages as evidence to support his extortion claim.
Earlier today TMZ reported that Grigorieva’s publicist Steve Jaffe is no longer representing her. Sources close to the Russian insisted she was disappointed with how Jaffe handled Gibson’s extortion claim. While others insist that it was a money issue.
