On Sunday's FOX News Channel's "Geraldo at Large," Kowal said Mel was "very abusive" and would call her up screaming that he would make her suffer.

"I was so scared of him. It was a huge emotional experience for me. I was close to going to the police," the filmmaker said of their relationship, reported to have taken place in the summer of 2009. She last saw Mel in November 2009.

Violet claims that she thought the relationship between Mel and Oksana was over. "He never talked about Oksana or the baby," Kowal said. "It was like they weren't in his life."

What is already an ugly custody battle over Gibson and Grigorieva's 8-month-old daughter, Lucia, could get worse. A court date hasn't been set, but the outrageous tapes of Mel's rants are sure to be an issue.
