(Newser) – Mel Gibson's travails are taking a toll on ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, their baby daughter, the actor/filmmaker's reputation—and legendary sci-fi author Ray Bradbury. You see, Gibson holds the rights to the remake of Bradbury's classic novel Fahrenheit 451, Movie City Indie explains. "There's no news," Bradbury, 89, said in an interview last weekend. "It's a great shame," he added. "Unfortunately, he's busy with the Russian girl. I saw him on TV this morning swearing at her." Watch the video in the gallery.
