Is Mel Gibson going to sit for his deposition?

Friends of Oksana Grigorieva – who accuses Gibson of beating her – claim that he deliberately stalling to avoid sitting for his deposition.

The reason – in their opinion – would be the fact that Mel does not want his deposition taken before the L.A. County District Attorney makes a decision on whether to prosecute the actor.

The D.A.’s office will make ts decision on whether the police’s domestic violence investigation warrants charges against him within the next couple of weeks.

TMZ, however, speculates that Mel will almost certainly choose to assert his Fifth Amendment privilege on most, if not all, of the events surrounding the January 6 fight.

Oksana was not hapy learning that Mel was out of the country on a fishing trip, especially because the deposition was scheduled more than two weeks ago.

Other sources dispute that Mel is intentionally avoiding his deposition, saying he will be back this weekend and the deposition should take place shortly.

Meanwhile, Gibson apparently hired some private investigators attempting to discredit Oksana Grigorieva.
