Mel Gibson. Phone rantings provoked?

Do you think some of his rantings were provoked? The phone ones? She sounded really calm on the phone while he was really, really ticked off, like he was provoked. Now, I know his history, so I am NOT saying he's innocent or anything like that. But she sure sounded like she was egging him on, to get him more upset because she knows how to push his buttons. What do you think?

  • I wondered this too, but someone made an insightful comment about abuse victims being very docile in order to try and not further provoke the other person. I'm on the fence and it's almost impossible to get the whole story from the he-said, she-said. So who knows.

  • Yeah, I know. I have to say, I'd do the same thing though. I'd provoke him if I were here. Except, he doesn't need it! He doesn't need help getting himself into hot water!

  • Since you only get half the phone calls yes, & shes barely ever says anything, Yes I do.. I know hes messed up in the past, but you have to wonder what the hell she said to set him off. I smell a set up

  • I'm pretty convinced he's been provoked. Who knows... maybe they provoke each other? But in general people don't act like that for "no reason". We never hear the FULL story. I guarantee you there's a LOT more to it than we'll ever know.

  • It doesn't even sound real. It sounds like she recorded it, then took out all of her responses, and redid it. So now she sounds like a wanna-be oh-so-inocent victim. It just sounds so fake. She's does music work, she'd know how 'cut and paste' that kind of stuff.
