Hollywood actor Mel Gibson has reportedly offered $1 million to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva to turn over his infamous taped rants.
The couple split in April and the break-up turned nasty when the Russian singer accused her former partner of beating her during a violent argument in January.
Taped arguments between the pair subsequently surfaced online and the lurid content hit headlines across the world.
Grigorieva's lawyers have denied she was behind the leak and Gibson's legal team lodged an official complaint with police, accusing her of trying to bribe the star for a big cash payout in exchange for the audio footage.
According to the documents obtained by TMZ.com, the Lethal Weapon star offered the singer $1 million to turn over "all evidence" and "represent and warrant that all evidence has been turned over and all evidence will be destroyed in a manner agreed upon by both parties".The website reports the "evidence" in question is defined in a related document as "recordings, audio tapes, emails, text messages, videotapes and photographs... of Gibson".
The document also cites a "50-50" custody share of the former couple's daughter, Lucia, and details a financial plan for the youngster's future, as well as payments for Grigorieva.
