    By Sharon Waxman & Brent Lang | The Wrap

    Mel Gibson continues to threaten the life of his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, according to an explosive letter by his recent film collaborator, Joe Eszterhas.

    In a nine-page letter to Gibson obtained by TheWrap, Eszterhas writes on April 9: “You were raving at Oksana even after you'd reached a custody agreement over Luci,” their daughter.

    “And then you were even more explicit about your threat: 'I'm going to kill her! I'm going to have her killed!' You said you'd become friends with two FBI agents (or former FBI agents) and they were going to help you to kill her.”

    Eszterhas, a legendary Hollywood screenwriter, describes a violently unhinged Gibson ranting about his ex-girlfriend, whom he describes with sexual epithets despite their having reached a custody agreement.

    A spokesman for Gibson did not respond to emails seeing comment.

    In the letter, Eszterhas accuses Gibson of using him to deflect continuing charges of anti-Semitism “which have dogged you, charges which have crippled your career,” as they worked on a movie about Jewish rebels in the 2nd century, “The Maccabees.”

    He added: “I've come to the conclusion that the reason you won't make ‘The Maccabees' is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews.”

    But his allegations about Gregorieva were even more terrifying, recounting several incidents that took place at Gibson's Malibu home and later at his vacation villa in Costa Rica in December. He tells of Gibson taking Eszterhas's 15-year-old-son Nick surfing, and then telling the teenager in explicit and crude language of his plans to kill Gregorieva.

    Writes Eszterhas of himself and his wife: “The rage which Naomi and I saw you exhibit was wild, crazed and explosive.”

    (Editor's note: this story contains highly offensive language below this point.)

    The letter included a description to Eszterhas of the scene that started a public relations fiasco when tapes of his yelling at her leaked online.

    “You kept raging about your ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, Luci's mother, whom you always referred to as ‘that ****' and ‘that fucking bitch.' You acted out for me the scene where you hit her. But you said you'd ‘just slapped her a little bit.' After you slapped her, you said, she grabbed Luci and went running “hysterically” down the hillside behind your house in the pitch dark.

    “'I want that **** gone!' you screamed. ‘Gone! Gone! Gone! I will not share Luci with her!' And: ‘I'm going to get rid of her. No one will ever know! I'm not going to live this way the rest of my life! She's poisoning Luci against me! She is evil! They worship the devil where she came from. She's going to disappear! Gone!'”

    The 2010 recording captured an emotional Gibson, frequently out of breath and threatening to put Grigorieva "in a fucking rose garden.”

    The pair's drawn out custody battle over their daughter, Lucia, further damaged the actor's reputation.
    Gibson pleaded no contest in March 2011 to a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from their dispute. Grigorieva dropped her domestic violence claims against Gibson in May of that year.

    He reached a financial and legal settlement in August with Grigorieva, under which the actor agreed to pay $750,000 over five years and split legal custody of Lucia. In addition, Gibson agreed to buy a house for Grigorieva and their daughter.

    Though prominent industry figures, such as Jodie Foster and Robert Downey Jr., have remained steadfast in support of Gibson, the string of controversies have hurt his box office appeal.

    After a long absence from screens, Gibson returned in 2010's “Edge of Darkness.” The moody thriller fizzled at the box office, grossing just $81 million worldwide and costing nearly as much to film. Last year's “The Beaver” was an even bigger flop, eking out a mere $6.4 million at the global box office.

    Gibson's action film “Get The Gringo” is reportedly bypassing a theatrical release and premiering direct to video-on-demand on May 1.

    There have been other embarrassments too. Gibson was originally slated to make a cameo appearance as a Bangkok tattoo artist in “The Hangover Part II,” but was forced to drop out of the project after cast and crew members objected.

    After tapes of his rants against Grigorieva surfaced in 2010, Gibson's agency WME parted ways with the actor.

    In 2006, Gibson was detained by police in Malibu for drunken driving and found himself embroiled in a public relations fiasco when reports surfaced that he had launched into expletive-laden anti-Semitic remarks while in custody.

    I dislike both men, but I believe every word Eszterhas says, even though he comes across as a disgruntled screenwriter.

    Mel will always be a pig. It's how he's wired.

    Is there a reason this guy didn't report all of this to the police? Or did he and it's mentioned nowhere in the article?

    Mel Gibson is seriously considering suing Joe Eszterhas for secretly recording him at his home in Costa Rica last December, and then releasing the audio rant.

    Sources connected with Mel tell TMZ ... the actor believes he has a "basic human right" NOT to be secretly recorded in his own home.

    We're told Mel's people are looking at the laws of Costa Rica to determine if recording laws were violated and, even if they weren't, if Mel's right of privacy was violated by the release of the audio.

    Mel explodes in the recording about Eszterhas' lack of progress with "The Maccabees" script -- "What the Fukk have you been doing!!" He also unloads on Oksana Grigorieva, calling her a filthy fukcing c**ksucking whore."

    We're told Mel believes anyone recorded "at their worst moment" would sound awful, and it's unfair to trap people in their refuge.

    One Mel source notes with skepticism that Eszterhas has made other allegations against Mel ... that the actor also ranted against the Jews and expressed pleasure that John Lennon was shot and killed .... but none of that is on the tape.

    "Who wants to eat?.....Hooray!" has been spoofed on my radio stations all morning. The man is out of his mind. Mental illness seems to be overpowering his large, ugly ego at this point. If this doesn't finish his career, his next project should be as an extra in a re-make of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.

    Arrgh! I can't believe I actually liked this guy at one time. He's as crazy as a loon, or sounds like it anyway.

    I suspect he's finished. Unless he follows Robert Downey Jr.'s example and straightens out...which doesn't look likely at this time.

    Robert was an addict who straightened himself out. Mel's just nuts. Unless he's heavily medicated and someone kicks his ego down to size, I don't see much hope for him.

    I saw Mel on THE TONIGHT SHOW the other night. I think I was more annoyed at Jay Leno for having him on the show and prompting his audience to give him a standing ovation after that big intro showing movie clips from Mel's 'amazing' career. I only had to see the way Gibson sat back in his chair and cocked his head to know that I wasn't going to like what was about to come out of his mouth.

    I don't either. Mel is Too Bad.

    But he's also too rich to stop until someone dies.

    I've always despised him.

    Jay Leno is a sh!t and all the other comics hate him. His smirky biases are all too obvious.

    Mel's a conservative (of course) and that always incurs Jay's favor.

    I saw an incredible movie last week that Mel Gibson made called APOCOLYPTO , it's absolutely stunning , it's a gripping story set in the Mayan civilisation, totally enthralling. It has subtitles so i imagine most people won't have sat through it , or any film not presented in their own language. It's a masterpiece.

    It is a master piece as is the pashion of the christ. Robert Downey Jnr stands by him because he was the only one who would give him a job when others wouldn't touch him. I can't condone his behavoir which is beyond awful especially to the mother of his child. I have my suspicions that he is suffering from alcoholic dementia or some form of psychiatric disorder. i would put money on the former and really needs a lot of help; the problem is that when someone suffers from this disorder people can be too afraid of them to help for obvious reasons. It's hard to know how this is going to pan out, probably not too well. However, I am going to choose to believe there are two Mels the decent one who cares for his friends and created master pieces and the new one who isn't very well.
