Things appear to be getting only worse for Mel Gibson, as a second audiotape has surfaced in which the actor-filmmaker admits to hitting former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and threatens her. 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. »
