    Default Timothy Dalton visits Oksana Grigorieva & warns Mel Gibson to stay away from his son

    Timothy Dalton lands a supporting role in the Mel Gibson scandal by visiting his former lover Oksana in LA



    By Daily Mail Reporter
    Last updated at 8:33 AM on 18th July 2010


    British actor Timothy Dalton has lent his support to former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva during her increasingly bitter child custody battle with Mel Gibson.
    The 66-year-old star was spotted visiting Grigorieva at her home in LA - looking a little less debonnaire than his days as dashing secret agent James Bond.
    Dalton and Grigorieva, 40, started a relationship around 1995 after meeting while she was employed as a translator for filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov.





    Bond of friendship: Timothy Dalton leaving the LA home of ex-wife Oksana Grigorieva. The pair married in 1997 and have a 12-year-old son, Alexander


    They have a child together, 12-year-old Alexander, who was born in 1997, and Grigorieva has said: 'We raise our son together. He's a good father and they have a very good relationship.'
    The pair split up in 2007 and have remained friends.

    Dalton was only at Grigorieva's home for a short while, but with all the media attention surrounding her and Gibson at the moment, it was clear that he wanted to make his support public.

    His visit coincided with the release of photographs that were apparently taken hours after Gibson allegedly hit Grigorieva in the mouth.





    Show of support: Mel Gibson's ex-wife Robyn is defending him against the domestic violence allegations, calling him a 'wonderful and loving father'


    The photo, posted on celebrity website RadarOnline, showed the damage done to Grigorieva's teeth. But they did not appear to show any bruises to the Russian-born musician’s lip or face.
    Gibson yesterday received support from his soon-to-be ex-wife, who filed for divorce in April 2009 after almost 30 years of marriage.
    Robyn Gibson has written a sworn declaration on behalf of the Lethal Weapon actor, in which she insists he never harmed her or any of the couple's seven children during their 28-year marriage.
    She writes: 'Mel never engaged in any physical abuse of any kind toward me before, during or after our marriage.'
    'Mel was a wonderful and loving father.'


    Long relationship: Grigorieva and Dalton together in 1996. The couple split in 2007 but have remained friends. Grigorieva says: 'We raise our son together'


    Los Angeles detectives have already launched an investigation into Grigorieva's claims - including the allegation Gibson punched her in the face 'more than once' while holding Lucia during the January 6 argument.
    RadarOnline's allegations were repeated in the new York Post and several other American media outlets.
    However, Gibson's lawyers were expected to tell the judge at yesterday's private custody hearing that the tapes were leaked by Miss Grigorieva as part of an attempt to get more money from him after their April break-up.
    His legal team is also claiming to have 'concrete forensic evidence' that the recordings have been tampered with.



    More...


    There has been no proof as to the authenticity of the tapes and sources connected with Gibson have said that the actor denies striking Grigorieva.
    Grigorieva, who split up with the actor around March, claims she started secretly tape-recording Gibson after he threatened to kill her.

    Gibson is currently said to be in therapy. A friend of the actor told People.com that the actor is ‘coping as well as can be expected.'

    Timothy Dalton warns Mel Gibson to stay away from his son in Oksana Grigorieva battle

    By Graeme Culliford 18/07/2010

    Former James Bond star Timothy Dalton is helping Mel Gibson's ex-lover in her bitter custody battle.
    The 007 actor, who was married to Oksana Grigorieva and is father of her 12-year-old boy, is furious his son has been dragged into her showdown with Gibson.
    Dalton is now backing his ex-wife's bid to place a restraining order on the Lethal Weapon star - telling US authorities he does not want Gibson to "come within 10ft" of his lad, Alexander, nicknamed Sasha.
    And he has also thrown his support behind Oksana's bid to prevent Gibson getting custody of Lucia, the eight-month daughter they share. A source exclusively told the Sunday Mirror: "Tim is very concerned about what Sasha might have seen and heard while his mum was in this relationship.
    "Tim thinks it is in the best interests of everyone that Sasha ceases to have any contact with Mel Gibson."
    The Sunday Mirror can reveal that Dalton, who starred in two Bond films, including The Living Daylights, was at his son's side when he was interviewed by the Department of Children and Family Services at Oksana's home in Los Angeles on Friday.

    Asked if he felt Gibson was a threat to his son, he replied: "Absolutely no comment." The schoolboy was reportedly one of the only people to see the alleged domestic violence perpetrated against his mother. He is understood to be a key witness, supporting Oksana's claims of being repeatedly punched and threatened.
    Alexander never warmed to Gibson, 54, during his turbulent three-year relationship with his mother, according to reports. And the Australian star was heard tearing into the youngster during one of his shocking taped telephone rants earlier this week.
    Gibson slammed musician Oksana, 39, over her parenting skills and then yelled: "Look at your son, he's a f***ing mess."
    Oksana and Dalton, 64, met in the 90s, lived in Chiswick, London, and wed in 1997. They broke up a short time before she began seeing Gibson.
    But Oksana is understood to remain on good terms with the Welsh-born star and her mum described him as a "prince" in a recent interview.
    In a bizarre twist, Gibson has won the support of his estranged wife Robyn, 52, in his bid to retain access to Lucia. Robyn has signed a sworn declaration stating he never physically abused her or any of their seven children in their 28-year marriage.

    God I can't believe his ex-wife is supporting this douchebag now. I somehow just don't buy that a hateful mysoginist racist anti-semite suddenly starts hitting women in his 60's out of nowhere.

    And that is so, SO completely fucked up that he hit Grigorieva in front of her 12-y.o. son. That poor boy, that sort of thing can leave some deep psychological scars.

    Robyn is calling Mel a wonderful and loving father, not a great ex-husband. I think she just doesn't want to do him down in front of his kids. Money talks.

    It does help Oksana that Timothy Dalton is supporting her.

    I don't know. Could this be a side effect of early onset Alzheimers? I'm not saying Mel wasn't a bit of a douchebag before, but this sounds like he went whole hog off the deep end in the past five years or so.

    Totally trivial and completely unimportant (but this is gossip after all) -- is it just me or does Oksana have a really weird shaped face? It looks crooked to me.

    Wow, Timothy Dalton is older than Mel? Sure doesn't look like it.

    In the one picture with Dalton, it looks like she's beginning to smile. Here's another one.

    She looked so much better before she had a nose job. Now her face is weird looking. Her nose is too small.

    And I notice she said he never physically abused them. Nothing about verbal or emotional abuse.

    No friggin' kidding! She was kind of pretty, not the fake freakshow she is now.
    And Dalton, despite having lost his looks, at 66 looks so much better than
    50 something Gibson! Unbelievable.

    She should have left very well alone -- she looks much better here.

    He was so gorgeous in A Lion in Winter. The scene where he double crosses Richard is probably my favorite in the whole movie

    Who hasn't wondered whether Leathal Weapon/Mad Max could take 007?

    BTW Julia Roberts - once in an interview - credited Lion In Winter as the movie that inspired her to become an actress. Hopefully that doesn't spoil the film for anyone.
