The attacked fan reportedly is seeking to sue the actor for attacking him at Playhouse in Los Angeles.
A new report surfaces by the hour that Mel Gibson has attacked a fan during a night out partying at a club in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 28. Hollyscoop claims the actor was seen arriving at Playhouse to celebrate the venue's grand opening party with the companion of pregnant girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and a group of people.
Inside the hot spot, Mel and his companion sat on the VIP booth. It was during the time that a reporter of Life and Style magazine posing as a fan tried to snap a picture of him and Oksana. His security quickly took the camera from the unidentified female reporter and deleted the pictures.
However, she didn't give up that easily and sent her male friend to take another picture of Mel and his entourage. His action drew Mel mad that he immediately "stepped in and attacked the clubgoer because he was fed up with everyone trying to snap a photo of him partying." Hollyscoop quoted its source as stating, "Mel approached the guy who tried to take his picture and ripped his shirt."
While the attacked-clubgoer is said attempting to pursue legal action against Mel, neither the movie star nor his camp has issued a statement regarding the matter.
