On the latest recording – reportedly posted in its original, unaltered form on RadarOnline.com – Gibson, 54, is heard panting and shouting in a profane rage on a phone call with Grigorieva, 40. When she tells him he needs medication, he shouts back: "You need a [expletive] bat in the side of the head. … You need a [expletive] brain transplant. You need a [expletive] soul."
At another point, he says, "Threaten ya? I'll put you in a [expletive] rose garden. … You understand that? Because I'm capable of it."
When Grigorieva says Gibson hit her in the face and broke her teeth – "What kind of man is that?" she asks – Gibson replies: "Oh, you're all angry now! You know what, you [expletive] deserved it."
That exchange appears to be a reference to a Jan. 6 incident between the couple, which is now the focus of a domestic-violence investigation against Gibson.
This latest tape follows a previous one in which Gibson was heard angrily insulting Grigorieva for wearing "provocative" clothing. On the earlier tape, Gibson used the N-word and suggested Grigorieva – with whom he has an 8-month-old daughter, Lucia – would be to blame if she were raped.
