Mel Gibson's baby mama is reportedly the target of a L.A. County Sheriff's Department investigation looking into allegations she tried to extort money from the actor in return for keeping the tapes secret, according to a new report.
LA County Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore confirmed to TMZ.com today that they are looking into the matter.
"Extortion allegations have been brought to our attention and we are certainly going to be looking at that," he said.
Gibson's lawyer Blair Berk met with authorities on Tuesday, alleging that they have proof Oksana Grigorieva lied to authorities about various claims.
Sources connected with Gibson have told TMZ they have "hard proof" of extortion.
This comes as TMZ reported earlier today that Grigorieva claimed Gibson grabbed her son and threw him onto a table in a fit of rage, all over a cigarette.
The incident allegedly took place at a party last year in Costa Rica.
TMZ said sources connected to the case claim Grigorieva's 12-year-old son, Alexander, was jumping up and down, trying to knock a cigarette out of the actor's mouth. That's when she claims Gibson got mad, grabbing the boy and threw him violently onto a table.
The issue came up during a mediation meeting this past May when the couple were trying to hammer out a custody arrangement over their baby daughter.
Gibson's lawyers have investigated the incident and claim there were "numerous adults and children" who saw what happened and will say Gibson was clowning around.
But one time Gibson may not have been joking is when Grigorieva claims Gibson hurt the couple's then-2-month old daughter Lucia.
RadarOnline.com reported today that it obtained the photo of baby Lucia showing what appears to be a small abrasion on her chin after the brutal Jan. 6 brawl in which Grigorieva claims Gibson punched her and hit their child.
The Department of Children and Family Services has said it is investigating the incident.
Gibson appeared to confirm the assault and told Grigorieva that she deserved it.
"You need a f- -king kick up the ass for being a bitch c- -t gold-digging whore!" Gibson said in a recording posted yesterday on RadarOnline, the sixth in a damaging series of secret tapes released earlier this week.
"And I want my child and no one will believe you! So f- -k you! And I'm not giving you my house and you can rot, unless you crawl back, suck my c- - k, and say you're sorry, in that order!"
