(Newser) – The Mel Gibson-Oksana Grigorieva circus gets a bit of credibility as Grigorieva gives her first interview—to that classiest of celebrity weeklies, People. “I thought he would kill me,” Grigorieva says of the infamous fight during which Gibson allegedly hit her. She also claims he once brandished a gun in front of her, and often raged and talked about suicide. Even so, “I'm not angry at him," she says. "For the sake of Lucia, I really want him to be well.”

Grigorieva was originally slated to sit down with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, but that won’t be happening after all. For more on that, click here.
