Gibson speaks to detectives about extortion claims
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A sheriff’s official says Mel Gibson has met with detectives to discuss his claims that his ex-girlfriend attempted to extort money from him.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says the interview occurred Sunday. He says detectives only spoke to the Academy Award-winner about his claims against ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva (gree-GOR’-yeh-vuh).
Neither has been arrested and no charges have been filed.
Stephen Jaffe, a spokesman for Grigorieva, declined comment on the meeting. The 40-year-old Russian singer denied the extortion allegations to celebrity photographers in video shot Friday.
Gibson’s interview was first reported Tuesday by celebrity website TMZ.com.
