Oksana Grigorieva discusses Mel Gibson

Tells People she didn't leak tapes or try to extort him

Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva told People magazine that she wants the actor to do well for their daughter's sake.

"I'm not angry at him," Grigorieva said. "For the sake of [daughter] Lucia, I really want him to be well. He has to have the courage to be responsible for what he's done."

She also denied leaking tapes she made of angry Gibson phone calls and denied using them to extort him. "I needed to document his threats," she told People.

Talking about problems in their relationship, she said Gibson once hit her while she was holding Lucia. Gibson has said he intervened, because she shook the baby, according to People.

Grigorieva also told the magazine that Gibson talked about suicide and once brandished a gun in front of her.
