Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend claims that the actor threatened to hit her with a bat, as a new tape emerges apparently capturing Gibson in a demented rant.

If the tape is really Gibson then it is an admission of domestic abuse against his former partner and mother of his child, Oksana Grigorieva.

On the recording, taped by Grigorieva, he allegedly says: “You need a f***ing bat on the side of the head.”

“I’ll put you in a f***ing rose garden, you c***.”

When asked why he hit her in the face, Gibson says: “You f***ing deserved it.”

The tape, obtained by US website Radar Online, could be used as evidence in the LA County Sheriff’s investigation of the star on charges of domestic violence.

Gibson is already in hot water over the alleged abuse of his ex-girlfriend and a separate recording is said to have caught Gibson making a racist remark against Latinos.

Gibson was dropped by his talent agency, William Morris, last week. A source said: “There’s nothing to do for Mel Gibson at the moment. No one will touch him with a 10-foot pole.”
