Mel Gibson's former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has reportedly been receiving death threats after alleging that the Hollywood star was violent towards her.
The Russian singer, who is at the centre of domestic violence allegations against her former partner Gibson, is frightened for her safety after receiving "multiple" telephone messages abusing her for making domestic violence allegations against the 'Braveheart' star, TMZ.com reported.A source told the celebrity website that at least one of the calls "could be interpreted as a death threat".
Meanwhile, police reportedly want to interview Oksana's 12-year-old son Alexander, whose father is former James Bond actor Timothy Dalton, as they believe he is "a very important percipient witness" to the former couple's volatile relationship.
The youngster lived with Mel and Oksana, who have an eight-month-old daughter, Lucia, together, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department believe he may have witnessed the aftermath of the couple's row when the actor allegedly knocked out his former lover's teeth, though he is not thought to have seen the attack.
Oksana is not expected to block investigators from interviewing her son.
Last night, a third tape featuring Mel's rants against Oksana was released, in which he brands the singer a "mentally deprived idiot".
