Mel Gibson may sue Joe Eszterhas. Allegedly
If you missed the dulcet tones of Mel unleashing a fresh stream of mouth dirt, you should scroll down and listen. And then you should know that, according to TMZ, Mel now wants to sue Joe Eszterhas for taping his rant:
"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 bleep have you been doing!!" He also unloads on Oksana Grigorieva ... 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."
