Mel Gibson dropped by agent?

world Updated: Jul 11, 2010 23:07 IST

Hollywood heavyweight Mel Gibson has reportedly been dropped by his talent agency following his well-publicised personal problems.

The Braveheart star is being investigated by Los Angeles police amid allegations he was violent towards his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva during a reported incident in January this year.

It came after Gibson was accused of using offensive racial language in an expletive-laden, recorded argument with his ex. The former couple is also battling it out over visitation rights to their baby daughter, Lucia, following their split.

Gibson has now received another blow as he's been dropped by executives at the William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, just days after the death of his longtime agent, Ed Limato July 3, reported.

But the star's publicist, Alan Nierob, has refused to confirm the rumours.

"It is way too soon to be discussing agency representation out of respect to Mel's 30-plus years relationship with long-time agent Ed Limato," Nierob said in a statement.
