Is Mel Gibson losing his grip? Mel reportedly freaked out at Sunday services, berating the members of his church for supposedly spreading rumors and gossip about him and his pregnant wife Oksana Grigorieva.
He even threatened to shut the church down if people didn’t stop gossiping about his baby mama.
“[His] holier than thou world is falling apart around him — all these years he’s been preaching the good holy word, and now that the wizard’s curtain has been pulled back, we find that Mel hasn’t been practicing what he preaches.”
“He paced back and forth, furiously telling the congregation that he would not stand by and be judged and scrutinized,” the source added.
“Mel got up on his stage — the altar — and went off. He tried to intimidate the parishioners by staring at everyone with his angry eyes. Mel even threatened to shut down the church if people kept gossiping about him.
“The bottom line is that if Mel hadn’t cheated on his wife and gotten his Russian girlfriend pregnant, there wouldn’t be much to gossip about — he created this mess, and now he’s trying to control it.
“He’s definitely feeling the heat for it.”
Sure, some rumors about Mel’s erratic behavior in the last few weeks were probably exaggerated, but chastising members of his own weird church? It’s really pretty hard to see how that could get taken too out of context.
The weird thing is that he really could shut the church down, because he bankrolls it. Is this not the most egomaniacal thing you’ve ever heard of?
Hopefully, this news is not true, because that’s a terrible example for Mel’s 7, soon to be 8, kids. Plus, it’s a pretty awful way to start a new family with Oksana.
