Joe Eszterhas provides NSFW audio of Mel Gibson's Costa Rica rant

Mel Gibson was pretty vehement in his denial of screenwriter Joe Estzerhas' accusations that he freaked out on him at a December meetup in Costa Rica, screaming all sorts of mad rantings in near-incomprehensible tongues (or something to that effect). Yeah, too bad Joe has a recording of some of it.

TheWrap.com, which previously published Estzerhas' nine-page letter to Gibson about the incident, posted audio of part of the insanefest, which was recorded on an iPod by Joe's 15-year-old son, Nick. Way to blackmail the rich and shameless, young man! The episode included shouting at Joe over a lack of a first draft for The Maccabees, as Mel alleged earlier, but it got way off target after that.

"Why don’t I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f--- have you been doing?" Mel can be heard screaming at Joe in a downstairs billiard room (listen to it above, if you have headphones). He then goes on to scream about baby mama Oksana Grigorieva, claiming, "I am earning money for a filthy little c---sucker who takes advantage of me!"

In fact, Eszterhas claims in his letter the whole rant started because Mel was looking at a photo of himself and daughter Lucia in which he looked old. Gibson allegedly threw his cellphone against the wall and started screaming, "I look so f---ing old! I look horrible! That f---ing whore is destroying me! She's taking my looks! I hate her! She's destroying my life!" That part isn't on tape.

What is recorded is screaming and yelling and storming around his home breaking things, including a totem pole, all in front of Joe's son and wife Naomi, plus screenwriter Randall Wallace, his girlfriend Elizabeth Topp and Mel's pal Brad Hillstrom, not to mention the house staff and their kids, who don't count because they aren't famous in anyway.

In the recording, Mel lumbers into the dining room and shouts to all present, "Who wants to eat? Who the f--- wants to eat? Go have something to eat!
 Hurray!" He then drops several more F-bombs before getting in his car and driving away.

"The bottom line is it shows to me he badly needs help," Eszterhas told the site. "My interest isn't to damage him with this tape but to prevent damage being done to others, starting with Jews, including Oksana and now, I'm sure, me. I strongly believe that unless he seeks and receives some kind of psychiatric help, someone is going to get hurt."
