Mel Gibson is Bipolar and Has Rage Issues
And now we turn to News That Will Shock No One on Earth: MEL GIBSON is bipolar and has rage issues.
--A so-called "source" says Mel was diagnosed during his custody battle with ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA. He even started taking medication and seeing a therapist.
--But the source says, quote, "It's clear to me from listening to the recently released tapes that he most likely isn't taking his medication, which is sad because when he was taking it he was so much calmer and rational."
--Meanwhile, TMZ says Mel might sue screenwriter JOE ESZTERHAS for releasing that new recording of Mel's latest meltdown.
--In case you missed it, here's what happened: Eszterhas had been hired to write what was supposed to be one of Mel's next movies, "The Maccabees".
--The movie got shelved, and it was supposedly because Joe's script wasn't up to snuff. But Joe wrote a nine-page letter saying it was Mel's fault.
--He accused Mel of being a Jew-hating anger ball who wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA and had no intention of actually making the film.
--The new audio was recorded during a trip to Costa Rica this past December by Joe's 15-year-old son Nick . . . who used his iPod. There were several people present including Joe and Nick, Joe's wife, friends of Mel's and members of his staff.
--In the video, Mel is RAGING. He screams at Joe, quote, "Why don't I have a first draft of 'The Maccabees'? What the [eff] have you been doing?"
--He also goes after Oksana, saying, quote, "I am earning money for a filthy little [person who performs oral sex] who takes advantage of me . . . So hurry the [eff] up!"
--Then he yells at all his guests, quote, "Who wants to eat? Who the [eff] wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!"
