Sheriff’s detectives in Los Angeles are looking into extortion allegations against Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend, reports USA Today.
A sheriff’s spokesman confirmed that the agency is probing whether Oksana Grigorieva tried to extort the actor, according to the story. The spokesman declined to provide other details on the inquiry.
Tapes have been leaking to the public in recent weeks that reportedly contain the voices of Gibson and Grigorieva and that raise issues of possible domestic abuse along with other concerns. Grigorieva and Gibson are involved in a bitter custody dispute.
Detectives interviewed Grigorieva earlier this month after she claimed Gibson abused her.
