Mel Gibson is being accused of hating John Lennon, wanting to seriously damage his ex-partner and calling Jews ‘oven-dodgers’.

Joe Eszterhas, who wrote Basic Instinct, claims Gibson told him he was happy when former Beatle Lennon was killed by Mark Chapman outside New York’s Dakota Building in 1980.

In a letter to the Australian-raised actor, Eszterhas claims Gibson said of Lennon: 'I'm glad he's dead. He deserved to be shot. He was f**king messianic.

“Listen to his songs! Imagine. I hate that f***ing song. I'm glad he's dead.”

It is alleged Gibson also went on a rant in which he said of ex Oksana Grigorieva: “I want to f*** her in the a** and stab her while I'm doing it.”

And Gibson is again accused of being an anti-Semite, following his slew of slurs in 2006 after he was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving.

“You continually called Jews ‘Hebes’ and ‘oven-dodgers’ and ‘Jewboys,’ Joe Eszterhas wrote.

“You said the Holocaust was ‘mostly a lot of horseshit'. You said the Torah made reference to the sacrifice of Christian babies and infants.

The writer made the claims after his script for The Maccabees, about the story of  the Jewish warrior who defeated the Greek-Syrian armies in the second century B.C, was rejected by studio Warner Bros.

The row started when TheWrap got a hold of Eszterhas' letter, in which he blames Gibson: “I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason you won’t make The Maccabees is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews.”

Lethal Weapon star Gibson hit back, saying the actual reason the ‘Jewish Braveheart’ was not green-lighted was because the writer delivered the worst first draft script he had seen in 25 years.
