As previously reported, new audio recordings of Gibson engaged in an epic meltdown have emerged which were allegedly recorded in Costa Rica last December by Hollywood screenwriter, Joe Eszterhas‘ son, Nick, in which the devout Catholic can be heard screaming, “f**king c**t” amongst other profanities.
The latest Gibson rants surfaced about two years after Mel was caught in a series of violent voicemails threatening to kill his then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, which RadarOnline.com exclusively obtained. Eszterhas alleges that Gibson also threatened to kill Oksana, or have his FBI buddies do it for him.
During his custody battle with Oksana, Gibson was diagnosed with a severe bipolar disorder and rage issues, a source close to the actor tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. Mel began taking psychiatric medication to cope with his anger issues and he was seeing a psychiatrist during the custody battle and that was how he was able to hold it together.
“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,” the source tells RadarOnline.com.
Gibson was ultimately charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly hitting Oksana, and he pled no contest.
According to the Mayo Clinic, people suffering from bipolar disorder can experience poor judgement, rapid speech, aggressive behavior, agitation, irritation. The disorder can be treated with medication.
In the shocking new recording, Gibson blows a gasket during a disagreement with Eszterhas, who was at the Hollywood actor’s Costa Rica vacation home. In the audio, which was obtained by The Wrap, Mel is heard screaming, “I go to work, you’re getting paid, I’m not! S**t! I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me! Just like every motherf**ker!”
Mel spews the F word at least seven times, and then just totally loses it, ranting “who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat?, f**king c**t, c**ksucker whore.”
Unlike his vile tirade against his ex, where he threatened to bury her in a rose garden, for which he never apologized, Gibson responded back to Eszterhas’ claims without addressing any of the specific hateful rants Eszterhas accused him of.
“I will acknowledge like most creative people I am passionate and intense,” Gibson told Deadline.com in an open letter last week.
Gibson remains on probation for his no contest plea in the battery case involving Oksana Grigorieva.
Calls seeking comment to Mel Gibson’s spokesperson weren’t immediately returned.
