LOS ANGELES (AP) - 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 (gree-GOR’-yeh-vuh) may have tried to extort the Academy Award-winner. He declined to offer any other details on the inquiry.
A spokesman for Grigorieva declined comment Wednesday.
No arrests have been made, and neither has been charged with any crimes.
